Quite true.-Java is-mostly for sites that want to run applets in your browser. There are not many of those.

re: The Death Of Java In The Enterprise?
getting hacked can be rather costly . consequently it behoves us to evaluate the software we have in service with respect to security problems .

there are no big secrets : the usual suspects are responsible over and over and over again . some of these products are probably beyond repair as they were not designed with security in mind at the start .

which makes it evident we need to switch to software products that take security seriously .

The web-based Java apps are not the problem. They're just hosted on Java servers, but tend not to be Java applets that run in the browser. It's only a Java applet that runs in the browser that's a problem. That's the only way currently to get the malicious payload.

-Most browsers are running javascript not java.- I very rarely find anything that requires java in the browser.- Java as an application tools is great as a browser plugin is unnecessary in 99% of the cases

Wow, that's a really great idea. Industries that have poured millions into web-based Java apps should just stop using them. Why didn't anybody else think of that?

Easy:- don't use java in a browser.- All the vulnerabilities I've seen so far have been when from that use case (unless I missed some).- Using java for desktop apps and server-side still has its place, and will for a long time.

Improving Enterprise Cybersecurity With XDR
Enterprises are looking at eXtended Detection and Response technologies to improve their abilities to detect, and respond to, threats. While endpoint detection and response is not new to enterprise security, organizations have to improve network visibility, expand data collection and expand threat hunting capabilites if they want their XDR deployments to succeed. This issue of Tech Insights also includes: a market overview for XDR from Omdia, questions to ask before deploying XDR, and an XDR primer.
