"There are two types of companies: those that have been hacked, and those who don't know they have been hacked."
- John Chambers, Cisco CEO
An adaptive network security model is necessary to accommodate the emergence of multiple perimeters
and moving parts on the network, and increasingly advanced threats targeting enterprises.
Adaptive security can watch a network for malicious traffic and behavioural anomalies,
ferret out end point vulnerabilities, identify real-time changes to systems, automatically
enforce end point protections and access rules, block malicious traffic,
and follow a compliance dashboard while providing audit data.
Among the key features of an adaptive security infrastructure are security platforms
that share and correlate information rather than point solutions,
so the heuristics system could communicate its suspicions to the firewall.
Other features include finer-grained controls, automation (in addition to human intervention),
on-demand security services, security as a service, and integration of security and management data.
Rather than adding security to custom applications after they go operational,
security models would be created at the design phase of an app.
A major change with this model of real-time adaptive security is shifting authorization management
and policy to an on-demand service that contains details and policy enforcement that matches compliance
and can adapt to the situation when as user is trying to access an application, for instance
