RSA APAC & Japan was an amazing event where minds met. The venue of the conference was Singapore which is one of the safest places to be in the real world.
If we all could also be that safe online….
The event gave us the opportunity to sit down with our partners and customers and discuss the latest key security challenges and solutions. The hottest topic that was addressed and discussed at this RSA was the continuous rise in breaches, attacks and various online and mobile threats. As Allot, we covered this topic in our latest in CloudTrends report that you can download here.
It is clear that the industry is facing significant challenges both today and in the (near) future. As industry leaders, we have to be agile and responsive to meet the security needs of our partners and customers. This means that we have to adapt our security offerings far more quickly than is done today. Furthermore, we need to look at some of the current technologies used by large organizations and those dealing with sensitive information and make those available to SMEs/SMBs as well as personal users.
With the rise of cloud, mobility and hyperconnectivity, the perimeter of organizations continues to dissolve. This is forcing them to change their approach when it comes to protecting their assets and data. What they should do is moving away from the classic “if/when it happens we will handle it” and “it will happen to them, not us” approach, and incorporate both policy and technology to be proactive and stay safe.
Needless to say, security is also a main concern in APAC due to the growth of mobility and cloud usage. Especially the need for personal cyber security is rising. Internet users should also be protected from online threats as well as illegal or inappropriate content. Being aware of and protected against online threats is key. That’s why governments and regulation bodies should be more active in establishing rules and legislation to protect the millions of users browsing the Internet.
