Have you ever heard of self-healing security? We know this might sound a little out there, but stay with us, we’ll explain. Self-healing security solutions are all about reducing the amount of time it takes to manage security. 

Self-Healing Security Has Been Developed and Adopted

ABN Amro, a major Dutch bank, and Nederlandse Organisatie voor Toegepast Natuurwetenschappelijk Onderzoek (also known as the Netherlands Organisation for Applied Scientific Research, or TNO) started a partnership to design an improved way to protect software. The result was a system that draws on the human body for inspiration.

A Brief Biology Lesson

Hopefully, you know that the human body is constantly refreshing itself. 10 years ago, your body was made up of entirely different cells than it is now. If the body thinks cells have been infected, they will be ostracized, while other cells are constantly dying off and being replaced.

When it comes to cybersecurity, this same idea can be put into place:

Just like in the body, if your security system detects an infection, it can be disposed of and can repair itself as needed.

There is Little Question That These Tools Could Be Useful to Businesses…

This type of self-healing security may become reality very soon. Until then, MyTek can do this for you. We can be there to make sure your security is working perfectly at all times, so your cybersecurity management isn’t taking up all of your precious time. Give us a call at 623-312-244.
