Recommendations

The META region is very fast-growing in terms of information technology and telecommunication development. Generally, the economy's growth strategy is to create an environment that will attract global business, promoting regional development and commercial success. Cybercriminals are well-aware of this approach and believe the META region offers them good opportunities to monetize cyberattacks. Our advice to META businesses is that they should understand the risks, and implement a strong IT security risk mitigation strategy, involving high levels of security awareness enablement for employees. It’s also very important to ensure that core IT security solutions, e.g. endpoint protection platform, cloud security, mobile security and anti-targeted attack solutions, are equipped with the latest and most powerful technologies.

Statistics based on less than 30 respondents should be used with caution, due to this being a low base.

** The methodology for measuring endpoint protection represents the penetration of endpoint protection in businesses meaning the proportion of corporate endpoints (both physical devices and virtual endpoints) that have endpoint security software installed in the average organization of this vertical and segment
