“The cyber arms race affects every government, business, organization and individual. It cannot be won by any one of us,” said SonicWall CEO Bill Conner. “Our latest proprietary data and findings show a series of strategic attacks and countermeasures as the cyber arms race continues to escalate. By sharing actionable intelligence, we collectively improve our business and security postures against today’s most malicious threats and criminals.”
“Enterprises across the board are going digital at an accelerated pace in Asia, but security still remains a top concern for them as cyber attacks become more prevalent and disruptive,” commented Wias Issa, Vice President and General Manager, Asia Pacific and Japan, SonicWall. “We work closely with all our customers to arm them with proper security solutions that are layered, integrated, intelligent and versatile, ready to take on evolving attack variants.”
The annual threat report frames, compares and contrasts advances made by both cybersecurity professionals and global cybercriminals.
“The risks to business, privacy and related data grow by the day — so much so that cybersecurity is outranking some of the more traditional business risks and concerns,” said Conner.
