As the number and severity of cybercrime attacks continue to climb, it is not surprising that companies are finding it increasingly difficult to keep up with the pace.
A staggering 59 per cent of companies last year reported an increase in the severity of cyber exploits, while 53 per cent of the same respondents said that the number of cyber exploits have risen, according to a survey of about 1,700 companies by Ponemon Institute. Yet, only 39 per cent feel that their existing cyber defences are highly effective in detecting cyber exploits, attacks or breaches.
While companies cannot prevent cybercriminals from attacking them, they can control how successful these attacks are. As such, Juniper Networks is advocating a new approach that is unified, simplified and intelligent to provide consistent protection across all locations.
