Today’s globally distributed and diverse workforce needs flexible yet straightforward access to the corporate network, regardless of user location, device type, employee affiliation, and application location (on-premises, SaaS, IaaS). Expedience and fluidity can’t come at the cost of security, especially given the realities of modern cybercrime. Learn more about the five demands you should make of an updated comprehensive application access solution.
As customers demand and expect more of a digitized experience, the scale and volume of secure data that’s being transmitted across the network is increasing exponentially. At the same time, across the APAC region high digital connectivity, contrasted with low cybersecurity awareness, growing cross-border data transfers and weak regulations have made this data a global target.
The growth in the “as-a-service” nature of the cybercrime marketplace is also fueling an increase in the number of traditional crime groups and individuals drawn into cyber offending. New sources of vulnerability from mobile, BYOD, CYOD, web-services and IoT devices are further broadening the cyber threat landscape with ever-more sophisticated forms of malware and DDoS attacks.

Certain types of diseases seem to only occur within certain national boundaries. Malware is not one of them. A formidable threat to enterprise security since the 1980s, cybercrime is a truly global phenomenon, and no business is safe from its reach.
A brief look at the history of malware attacks reveals a degree of variance within the virtual threat landscape that makes pinpointing and stopping such attacks extremely difficult.

The number one technology issue in the C-suite today is cyber-security.
And there’s no wonder—attacks are becoming more numerous and more sophisticated than ever. The cost of cyber-crime to the global economy has topped more than $445 billion2 – equivalent to 1% of global GDP. Sometimes cyber-crime can seem unstoppable – while firms spent more than $75 billion on cyber-defences in 20153 , cyber-crime grew by 38% that year.
That’s why C-suite executives everywhere are asking: What can we do to make a difference in defending against hackers, cyber-criminals and digital spies?
