The cybersecurity market is never static. However, in the last couple of years, the market has undergone a major transformation, with hackers continuously evolving their tactics and threat landscapes getting increasingly complicated. This has compelled CISOs, security vendors and even partners to think differently about cyber security. Finnish security provider F-secure that is putting its effort to create a niche for itself, in the global market, is focusing towards providing innovative security solutions and service for the enterprise.
According to a 2017 report by Greyhound Research, Security is the number three priority for CIOs in the Asia Pacific region, with 60 percent of the organisations in APJ being worried about managing cyber threats and the resultant damage for business and 77 percent organisations in the region struggling with evolving nature of threats while battling strategic challenges.
With the changes in the cyber security landscape, thanks to increased adoption of mobile and connected devices at the workplace, and the emergence of newer technologies such as artificial intelligence and the internet of things [IoT], the role of CISO is rapidly changing across the board.
“In such a scenario, it makes sense for companies such as F-secure to improve depth of relationships with its customers and partners, so that they can better address the needs of their customers,” added Sanchit Vir Gogia, Chief Analyst, Founder and CEO of Greyhound Research.
