How Blockchain Can Enhance Cybersecurity Across Multiple Digital Scenarios
This IDC Market Presentation looks at how blockchain relates to cybersecurity and how the technology can be used to enhance cybersecurity across multiple digital scenarios. Blockchain has a number of intrinsic properties including immutability, non-repudiation, and decentralization that make it suitable for cybersecurity purposes. The presentation explores in detail how blockchain can be used to strengthen Internet-of-Things (IoT) security, improve Public Key Infrastructure (PKI), protect against distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks, and secure online storage. Blockchain also has a number of cybersecurity issues of its own, and we recommend active steps that companies can take to ensure the cybersecurity of their blockchain solutions. The market presentation ends with a look at prominent European providers of blockchain-based cybersecurity solutions and makes predictions for the future of blockchain and cybersecurity.
