Last year was the year of the cyber attack. Operation Ababil by Cyber Fighters of Izz ad-Din Al-Qassam, Adobe’s massive data breach and the widely publicized attack on The New York Times by the Syrian Electronic Army are just a few of the attacks that showcased major security vulnerabilities in the enterprise. Radware®(NASDAQ: RDWR), a leading provider of application delivery and application security solutions for virtual and cloud data centers, conducted an in-depth analysis of last year’s attack methods and successful defense techniques. From this analysis, Radware’s Emergency Response Team (ERT) predicts the top network security threats that the industry will face in 2014.
“2013 was the year of hackers, hacktivists and cyber warriors. Not only will current threats continue to evolve, but new and advancing technologies like SDN and cloud computing pose new threats to businesses of all type and sizes,” said Motty Alon, director of security solutions at Radware. “Radware’s ERT has closely examined the evolution of cyber attacks and security threats in the last year, and through intense investigation, has found that 2014 will be an even more brutal year for security. This is a wake-up call for the enterprise to place a higher priority on proactive network technology strategy.”
