Gitex 2020: Trend Micro to showcase ‘The Art of Cybersecurity’

Trend Micro blocked 56.9 million cyber-attacks in H1 2020, new report shows


Ahead of Gitex 2020, Trend Micro has released the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) results for its annual mid-year roundup report. Trend Micro detected a combined 56,873,271 email, URL, malware, and banking malware attacks in the GCC during the first half of 2020.

In the GCC, Trend Micro detected 41,236,550 email threats, 13,181,016 URL victims, and 61,314 URL hosted attacks. Malware continues to surge, with Trend Micro recording 2,392,097 malware detections, and another 2,294 banking malware detections in the region.

Worldwide, Covid-19 related threats have been the single largest type of threat faced by organisations in the first half of the year. In just six months, Trend Micro blocked 8.8 million Covid-19 related threats, nearly 92 per cent of which were spam delivered via emails. In the GCC, Trend Micro blocked 163,774 Covid-19 threats: 127,415 URL attacks, 36,312 email spam attacks, and 47 malware attacks.

“The GCC’s high rates of cyber-attacks across email, URL, and malware show that cybercriminals are ramping up their exploits of the weak points in organisations’ endpoints, network, and cloud — especially with Covid-19-related threats,” said Dr. Moataz Bin Ali, vice president, Middle East & North Africa, Trend Micro.

Trend Micro will exhibit at Gitex 2020 under the theme of ‘The Art of Cybersecurity’. The theme combines Trend Micro’s foresight, its XGen security strategy of cross-generational threat defence solutions, and people which it says turns cybersecurity into a work of art.

The cybersecurity firm will also showcase cybersecurity solutions across cloud (Cloud One Hybrid Cloud Security), user protection for endpoints (Apex One), email and web, detection and response (XDR), Operational Technology (OT) and Industrial Control security (TXOne Networks), and network protection from known, unknown, and undisclosed threats (Network Defence).

Visit Trend Micro will exhibit in Hall 2, Booth H2-A10 at the Dubai World Trade Centre.
