Protect Your Assets with Defense-in-Depth, the Multilayered Approach to Cybersecurity
Defense-in-depth is a system of continuous and overlapping security layers that range from easy-to-implement controls to complex security tools. These layers are designed to create an interlocking barrier that is continuously monitoring and protecting your assets. With multilayered security, if one layer of defenses is breached, there are additional layers in place to mitigate any exposure. This model is designed to handle sophisticated cyber attacks and delivers a more robust cybersecurity solution that is necessary for today’s volatile cyber landscape.

The goal of defense-in-depth is to make it more difficult for attackers to infiltrate your systems and to detect and respond to a breach. Creating multiple barriers slows down attackers and sends out intrusion alerts before significant damage is done. Multilayered cybersecurity will also satisfy many compliance standards for industries like financial services and life sciences.
There are many different security layers that can be used in a defense-in-depth strategy, but some common ones include:
- Next-gen firewalls
- Endpoint security
- And more.
These are just a few of the many possible security layers that can be used in defense-in-depth. The important thing is to have a mix of different types of tools and controls so that you can create a comprehensive security solution.
