Cybersecurity mesh has been named a top strategic technology trend for 2022 by Gartner. According to Gartner’s report, cybersecurity mesh is a cutting-edge conceptual security architecture method that enables today’s scattered enterprises to extend and implement security where it is most needed.
David Carvalho, CEO and founder of cybersecurity network Naoris Protocol, told VentureBeat via email that cybersecurity mesh is a flexible, composable architecture that integrates widely distributed security services. It enables standalone security solutions to work together and improve overall security by moving control points closer to the assets they’re designed to protect. He added that it can quickly and reliably verify identity, context and policy adherence across cloud and non-cloud environments.

Carvalho noted that cybersecurity needs to be rethought and revamped, and that by 2025, the global problem of cyberharm will exceed $10 trillion. He noted further that, despite increased investment year over year, cybersecurity is still struggling to keep up with the never-ending arms race between defenders and attackers, with the cost of cyberdisaster overshadowing any investment.
The cost effect of individual security events would be reduced by an average of 90% by 2024, according to Gartner, if organizations adopt a cybersecurity mesh architecture to integrate security products into a cooperative ecosystem.
In a press release, Naoris Protocol stated it provides decentralized and remote-first enterprises with decentralized cybersecurity mesh technology, which can mitigate attacks across all devices, networks and every type of institution, offering a strong solution for any zero-trust architecture.
The company added that each validator in its mesh keeps track of and protects the value of the networks it covers using a decentralized proof of security (dPoSec) consensus method between peer-to …
