Thought Leaders in Cyber Security: Markus Jakobsson, Chief Scientist of Agari (Part 3)

Sramana Mitra: You’ve been in the cyber security space for a long time. Talk to me about what trends you see that are worth noting. Especially, what are some open problems out there that new entrepreneurs need to look into solving?

Markus Jakobsson: Cyber security defenses are often lagging behind. Many of the big and traditional companies are rather risk-averse when it comes to departing from their previous product strategy. You could see that, for example, in the antivirus market where antivirus products work pretty much the same as they dd 10 years ago. They’re a little bit faster with the updates these days than they were then.
