Growth in Cyber Attacks on Irish SMEs
The frequency of cyber attacks against Irish businesses has risen from 25% in 2012 to 44% currently, a rate that is considerably higher than the global average of 32 per cent. According to PWC's 2016 Irish Economic Crime survey cyber attacks on Irish businesses has almost doubled since 2012 and the cost associated with cyber crime has jumped too.
This worrying trend isn't going unnoticed in businesses; Magnet's Regional Business Barometer found that businesses themselves are more concerned in 2016 than they were the same time last year. As a broadband provider Magnet are in a critical position to play a strong part in protecting businesses from cyber attacks before they even enter their network.
Magnet have partnered with the world leaders in enterprise network firewalls: four-time Gartner Magic Quadrant Leader, Palo Alto Networks, to offer our customers exclusively protection from cyber attacks. Moreover this will be the first time, globally, SMEs will have access to Palo Alto's enterprise level security.
Why Magnet Partnered with Palo Alto Networks?
Palo Alto Networks realised they needed to take a different route to beat hackers. Hackers were no longer nerdy teenagers looking for a badge of honour; today's cyber criminals are dedicated, organised, well-financed and intelligent individuals bombarding organisations with ever-changing attack tools and vectors.
Traditional network security products are simply incapable of enabling the next generation of applications, users and infrastructures while dealing with on-going threats. Palo Alto Networks embarked on building Next Generation Firewalls from the ground up and are now the fastest growing network security company of all time.
