Trend Micro hosted the CLOUDSEC 2020, virtual cybersecurity conferences to enlighten some of the current cybersecurity solutions to secure businesses from possible cyberattacks.
The session, Recipe For Digital Transformation Success highlighted on the need to ensure business leaders and technical professionals are on track with their cloud security journey.
Covid-19 has contributed to the advancement of technology and digitalisation for many organisations and with that comes an increased risk, where 71 percent are reported to have at least one breach involving customer records. This leaves organisations open to loss of data, organisational misalignment, and shortage of qualified personnel due to this.
From using personal computers (PCs) 30 years ago to evolving into the usage of cloud, new infrastructure, user behaviours, and threats are anticipated. This is where organisations need to quickly adapt to solutions that matter most to customers.
Eva Chen, Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder of Trend Micro said it is important to have a strong and resilient company.
“It is important to have talented personnel who are experts in their field, to put customers first and be financially strong. We have more than 7, 000 employees worldwide comprising trusted cybersecurity experts and researchers, who are focused on customer success,” she shared.
Speaking about approaches to addressing the cybersecurity landscape Eva addressed that it is important to identify the X and Y factor in correlation between cybersecurity strategy and execution success.
She also emphasised the benefits of shifting from software to SaaS which will enable customer usage insights, immediate access to the latest security features, data-driven decisions on R&D, and direct in-app communication to customers.
Eva then introduced XDR, a cross-layered detection and response that is a service expert in threat hunting and investigation. It is an add-on to enhance the extended threat visibility and response capabilities. XDR connects email, endpoints, servers, cloud workloads, and networks to provide a broader perspective and a better context to hunt, detect, and contain threats.
Additionally, she also advised to activate the Smart Protection Network (SPN) that delivers proactive global threat intelligence against zero-hour threats to ensure that you are always protected.
“SPN uses the up-to-the-second threat intelligence to immediately stamp out attacks before they can harm you. It gathers threat information across a wide range of software, detects and prevents latest threats,” she explained.
