These are the security challenges that this universe poses to companies , who have part of the solution in their bases.

The constant development of the metaverse brings with it, in addition to advantages, a large number of challenges; One of them is cybersecurity, which has become a fundamental commitment, being the basis for building technology to guarantee the protection of users and the companies involved.

A path that opens to achieve this is open source, which proposes an ideal of joint work, which allows to overcome part of the challenges that are faced and create that ecosystem that brings the digital world much closer to everyday life.

< p class="paragraph">To understand what this concept of open source is, you have to see it as a model of software development based on joint collaboration and that is not only in the hands of a limited group of engineers or a company. Here the ideal is to take that development, adapt it to the needs and share it to continue growing.

Challenges with solutions

To create protection in this digital universe, it is not only necessary to put up the barriers at the moment the user is interacting, but the concept of security must be established beforehand, and that is where the first challenge arises, even when working with open source.

“Open source code can be very beautiful, but it needs a business strategy behind it, because for the number of systems and technologies that are being built in this entire universe, there must be a hardware component, a network component, a software component that is certified to deliver a high level of service”, Paulo Bonucci, general manager of Red Hat Latin America, told Infobae.

These are the security challenges that this universe poses to companies, which have part of the solution in their foundations.

Then other challenges appear, which follow that baseline, because they are put into build infrastructure, multi-cloud, latency, and availability levels, all of which allow for constant collaboration and improvement between businesses and communities.

“The challenge is agility and collaboration to deliver solutions as quickly as possible and before criminals are doing damage to a company or a State,” says Bonucci, who again emphasizes that open source “is precisely this concept of agility and collaboration to innovate and safety”.

All this under a framework in which it is clear that total security does not exist, but that it is possible to reach a wide range and be prepared, taking into account that the response to an attack can be “much faster” with the system. open “than when proprietary code infrastructure solutions are used.”

Already leaving this more technical and business panorama, the manager highlights that a key factor to guarantee security in the metaverse is 5G technology, because this allows an effective form of communication on the network. A development that in Latin America is not yet consolidated, while in Europe it is already advancing at a better pace, in the United States it is already working and the same in countries in Asia.

“The metaverse in Latin America it is peripheral and experimental. So until there is secure and stable coverage here, we are not going to see the metaverse having a greater impact on the lives of consumers,” he assured.

But in the end this digital universe is beginning to take shape, so for now a solution to the challenges that are currently and that may arise in the future lies in the consolidation of an infrastructure, which provides the basis for the development of applications, spaces and use cases that then come the users.
