In 2019, there were over 2.8 billion threats and cyber-attacks. And those are just the ones that were logged. Yet here in 2019, those attacks seem to be increasing.

Recently, Tom Field, Sr. VP, Editorial, ISMG sat down with Micro Focus’ William ‘Buck’ Houston, WW Business Dev and PJ Maloney of DXC Technology, Security Sales for their insights on steps to bolster cybersecurity. Houston and Maloney had just talked at a cybersecurity conference about the Cyberthreat Defense Report 2019, which is CyberEdge Group’s sixth annual Cyberthreat Defense Report, sponsored by DXC Technology and Micro Focus. The report provides a penetrating look at how IT security professionals perceive cyberthreats and plan to defend against them.

“The thing that is frustrating,” said Maloney, “is the repeatability.” The same types of attacks are appearing on the 2019 report as from 2018, such as malware, security application issues. Maloney stated that the traditional approaches to security “just aren’t enough.”
