In a fast booming digital realm, there occur frequent wars between the defenders and thieves of data and it is sarcastically described as a cat-and-mouse game. Immediately after a defensive action to one form of black-hat malicious behavior by the white hats, another malevolent form rears its ugly head. Therefore, the varying requirements in the data security landscape paved the need for more advanced and competitive solutions. Legacy security methods such as antivirus and firewall systems are facing several setbacks in confronting the newer threats in this regard.

Moreover, several solution providers are hitting the market with more competitive methods in the direction such as hardware authentication, user-behavioral analytics, data loss prevention, deep learning with the use of AI and machine learning. Such advancements in this regard can make a massive leap towards a secure workplace for the companies.
