David Lannin, CTO, Sapphire

Which cybersecurity start-up or emerging vendor are you tipping for take-off in 2023, and why?

Check out Menlo Security. Content security has been an issue for years and the cyber security industry has, in many ways, let down users by not solving the issue in an elegant way; we are burdened with agents, gateways, SaaS solutions, or a combination of all the above. Menlo take a fresh approach to this with their isolation platform, and I like the innovation they've shown in achieving it.

More broadly, what cyber technology, service or approach are you expecting more of your customers to adopt in 2023?

Making smarter decisions faster, before malicious attacks can happen, is where we will see large gains in 2023. This can be achieved via customer-relevant threat intelligence being integrated into a cyber security strategy. Many vendors are already offering these types of integrations, thus making their solutions more proactive in protecting against potential threats, as well as re-enforcing long-standing defensive and protective capabilities.

How do you expect the threat landscape to evolve in 2023?

I anticipate it to have more divergence in threat execution, as the world has firmly adopted diverse working practices. With the attack surface now broader than ever, combining multiple attack vectors will be on the agenda. This is going to be seen with remote workers continuing to be victims of sophisticated (and some less sophisticated) phishing campaigns, as well as the exploitation of unpatched systems - these are low complexity techniques, yet low hanging fruit for a cybercriminal. In truth, this isn't an evolution of the 2022 threat landscape, but rather, more of a repetition.
