Trend Micro' innovations blocked more than 65 million threats in Saudi Arabia during 2020
Published in The Saudi Gazette on 05 - 05 - 2021

Trend Micro Incorporated (TYO: 4704; TSE: 4704), a global leader in cybersecurity solutions, today released its 2020 Annual Cybersecurity report: A Constant State of Flux. The report shares insights from last year's threat landscape and provides strategic guidance for leaders to protect and navigate their organizations better in the new normal.
The global insights reveal that Trend Micro blocked 62.6 billion threats last year, 91% of which were email-borne. The findings also cited an average of 119,000 cyber threats detected per minute in 2020 as home workers and infrastructure came under new pressure from attacks.
In Saudi Arabia, Trend Micro solutions detected and blocked over 56 million (56,685,026) email threats, prevented 6.5 million (6,577,251) malicious URL Victim attacks, and nearly 17,000 (16,959) URL hosts. In addition, 3 million (3,006,703) malware attacks were identified and stopped, while over 2,000 (2,013) online related banking malware threats were blocked.
The report also shows that home networks in Saudi Arabia were a major draw for cybercriminals looking to pivot to corporate systems, devices, and networks. Across the kingdom, Trend Micro's Smart Home Network (SHN) solutions blocked more than 450,000 (452,427) SHN Inbound and outbound attacks combined, preventing 14 million (14,131,307) such SHN events for hackers to target or control home devices from executing malware, obtaining sensitive information, intercepting communications, or launching external attacks.
"The findings from our annual security report reveal that the threat landscape has completely evolved last year with unprecedented attempts to infrastructures and remote workforces," said Rasheed Al-Odah, Country Manager, Trend Micro Saudi Arabia.
"The new year presents an opportunity for companies in the kingdom to relook at their threat posture and strengthen it with a comprehensive security approach to better protect their people, processes and digital assets."
In its efforts to ensure secured digital transformation journeys of organizations in Saudi Arabia, Trend Micro has been working closely with public and private sectors to create awareness and bridge the gaps.
Earlier this year, the company launched its Trend Micro Vision OneTM platform to empower security teams in adopting a new approach that goes beyond – to provide enhanced visibility, threat intelligence, with extended detection and response at every layer of their IT environments. — SG
