Much like the private sector, the public sector has moved from the ‘if’ to ‘when’ mentality when it comes to building defences against cyberthreats, reports Benjamin Cher.
Conversations about IT security often revolve around technology and processes, and rarely about a third critical element: People. That’s a mistake, according to Jack Chan, a security strategist at Fortinet Inc’s FortiGuard Labs.
Fortinet has warned users that a critical vulnerability found in the Android operating system could allow hackers to gain access to their mobile devices with a single multimedia message (MMS).
Information technology decision makers (ITDMs) believe wireless networks to be the most vulnerable element of the IT infrastructure, according to a new survey from Fortinet.
Fortinet has warned that patient data is far more valuable to hackers on the black market than credit card numbers because it tends to contain data that is detailed, rich, and full of information that cybercriminals can use for identity theft and fraud.
Barracuda Networks Inc, ReversingLabs, Telefónica, and Zscaler have joined the Cyber Threat Alliance, co-founded by Fortinet, McAfee Labs, Palo Alto Networks and Symantec, in the fight against sophisticated cyber adversaries.
As the number of devices connected to the network increase, cybercriminals will continue to hone their prowess when it comes to IoT (the Internet of Things) attacks and advanced evasion techniques, while also continuing to exploit large-scale server-side vulnerabilities for financial gains and other nefarious purposes.
Fortinet said it has launched security consulting services for enterprises in the region, out of a new centre in Kuala Lumpur called the Fortinet South-East Asia & Hong Kong Solution Centre.
According to new research by Fortinet, 91% of Asia Pacific CIOs and CTOs (chief information and technology officers) believe the job of keeping their enterprise protected is becoming more challenging.
Fortinet announced that Sin Chew Media Corporation Bhd, Malaysia’s largest Chinese language publisher, has deployed its FortiGate network security platform to protect its network against growing online threats, improve business continuity and enable bring-your-own-device (BYOD) usage among its staff.
