A Short History of Moving Target Defense
Automated Moving Target Defense (AMTD) is emerging in the cybersecurity market as a new form of moving target defense (MTD). Not many people know that MTD is not new. It has been used effectively in communications security and information security for over 50 years before it appeared as a cybersecurity strategy. Today’s AMTD is a generational improvement over MTD, even the MTD from just a few years ago. The latest forms of AMTD are built for the cloud and are far more sophisticated than their predecessors. One new form even combines AMTD with Zero Trust to produce a strategic combination that amplifies the cybersecurity benefits at a relatively low cost.
