Nowadays most people are aware of cybersecurity risks and consequences. However, when we speak about cybersecurity it evolves many cyber risks and cybersecurity solutions.
As a computer engineer specializing in Cybersecurity and working with cybersecurity vendors for over 6 years, I have made a list of Cybersecurity Solutions:
DDoS o DoS.
A distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) and DoS (Denial-of-service attack ). I wouldn’t like to define here what you can find on Wikipedia or thousand of webs by google or just in Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Denial-of-service_attack
This kind of solution is very relevant for Telcos, ISP (Internet Service Providers), MSPs (Managed Service Providers), NOC (Network Operation Center), SOC (Security Operation Centers), and big companies.
The most relevant vendors here are Arbor, Radware, Cloudflare, F5, Flowmon, A10 Networks, etc
Not all the vendors are able to mitigate and clean the traffic, sometimes is a sum of two in order to provide a full solution.

The main targets are Industrial Environments and companies, such as car factories, Nuclear and Electric centrals.
The purpose is to prevent and monitor internal threats or attacks.

This is the same case of the anti-virus, nowadays is a must of cybersecurity solutions but not enough for the current network environments. It aims to protect from external attacks on the internal network or prevent access from an internal network to an external network.
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/General_Data_Protection_Regulation
After the launching of this regulation law, it has become a must solution for every company operating in the European Union or with customers or confidential information of people in the European Union.
Usually, this is regulated by a lawyer, however, it exists software doing this and checking in order to be compliant with the GDPR.
In the past, anti-virus and firewalls were the most common cybersecurity solutions. Nowadays, is a must but for sure not enough to protect your company or computer.
