KaaS Series: Cyber Security Mesh Architecture (CSMA)

According to Gartner’s predictions, “By 2024, organizations adopting a CSMA will reduce the financial impact of security incidents by an average of 90%.”

Cyber Security Mesh Architecture (CSMA) is a network design that helps to protect an organization’s data and systems from cyber threats. It is called a “mesh” because it is made up of interconnected nodes, or components, that work together to provide a robust defense against cyber attacks.

In a mesh architecture, each node is responsible for protecting a specific aspect of the network, such as a specific server or application. These nodes are connected to each other and share information about potential threats, allowing them to quickly detect and respond to attacks.

Overall, a CSMA helps to provide a multi-layered defense against cyber threats, making it more difficult for attackers to successfully penetrate an organization’s network.

Join us for a brief discussion around CSMA and then we’ll open it up for “ask me anything.” What you’ll take away from this session:
