Hong Kong - Sangfor Technologies, the leading vendor of network security in the APAC region, is proud to announce the launch of its Incident Response (IR) service, geared toward the unique and varied needs of small & medium organizations in the Asian market.
According to Cybersecurity Ventures, by 2021, a new organization will suffer a ransomware attack every 11 seconds. With small businesses a primary target of ransomware and the average cost of attacks now over $40,000, a new security response is needed to universalize security for all. While security services have only been available to large organizations at a prohibitive cost, this restriction is now a thing of the past!
"We are excited to offer this new security service to our customers. Previously security services were something exclusively reserved for large enterprises. However, we believe that every organization should not only be protected by network security devices but security services as well, inspiring Sangfor to develop its Incident Response service.” says Kaden Zhang, President of Sangfor International Department. “Having a full, in-house security expert team is expensive, and with this new cost-effective service, customers can enjoy a high level of protection before, during, and after an attack".
Advantages of Sangfor Incident Response:
