by Bharat Mistry

As a security leader we understand that forging close industry partnerships is vital to ensuring we continue to offer our customers the best protection and optimal performance.

Our appearance at VMworld Europe in November will be a great opportunity to articulate how Trend Micro can help VMware customers extend NSX to the public cloud, and drive a closer relationship between security and DevOps to improve hybrid cloud threat protection. Continue reading

Why Local Government Should Consider Third-Party Expertise to Manage Office 365 Cyber Risk

by Simon Edwards

Preventing Cyber-Physical Disaster: An IoT Masterclass at Infosecurity Europe

by Ross Baker

The Internet of Things (IoT) offers tremendous value to organisations, their customers and employees, driving business agility, productivity, cost reductions and much more. That’s why the total number of connected things is predicted to top 20 billion by 2020. Unfortunately, this IoT explosion also creates unique opportunities for cybercriminals. Of these, attacks which impact the physical world are arguably the most serious, potentially leading to costly service disruption and even loss of life.

That’s why we’ll be sharing some key best practice tips with attendees at Infosecurity Europe next month on how organisations can mitigate the risks of IoT-powered cyber-physical attacks. Continue reading
