46 Ways to Detect Threats

From Phishing Protection Programs to Real-Time X-Ray Streaming

— May 19, 2015 — Tech
In the modern world, threats are all around us. Not only do we have to worry about the typical physical threats, but cyber threats as well. However the good news is that while technology has led to the innovation of increasingly complex and precise threats, equally cutting-edge technology is used to stop these threats in their tracks.

It's perhaps unsurprising that a lot of security-thwarting technologies are embedded into already-high-tech products such as cars and smartphones. However they are increasingly being incorporated into things like furniture, clothing and seemingly nondescript items.

While there are numerous ways to detect threats of all shapes and sizes, they do tend to cost a pretty penny. However, the development of better and cheaper security-assuring tech products will likely ensure that their prices drop and that they will become more affordable to the layperson.
