Increasingly Complex Cyber-Attacks Cause USD12.5 Billion in Losses from 2016 to 2018

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates – Trend Micro Incorporated (TYO: 4704; TSE: 4704), a global leader in cybersecurity solutions, announced today it will showcase “The Art of Cybersecurity” at GITEX Technology Week 2019, including how 400 million pieces of global security data can enable enterprise protection on the cloud.

Cybersecurity will be a major topic of discussion at GITEX, the leading technology event in the Middle East, Africa, and South Asia, especially as cyber-attacks caused USD 12.5 billion in losses from 2016 to 2018. In 2018, Trend Micro blocked 48 billion threats and discovered 200 new ransomware families.

To bring these cyber-threats to life, Trend Micro has commissioned six artists to process and interpret cybersecurity data. Rather than at a standalone stand, Trend Micro will showcase these artistic interpretations specialized pods at six different partners’ stands, as well as on screens between demos.

“As the cybersecurity landscape becomes more complex, cyber-threats can be abstract to understand and ugly to confront when they strike,” said Dr. Moataz Bin Ali, Vice President, Trend Micro, Middle East and North Africa. “However, with our GITEX theme of ‘The Art of Cybersecurity,’ we aim to show how cybersecurity can be beautiful when organizations literally see how siloed threats can be put together to show a big picture, helping organizations stay one step ahead of cyber-threats.”

Supporting cybersecurity, Trend Micro will highlight its Deep Security solution for cloud and data security with AWS, Microsoft, and VMware, along with its new XDR detection and response solution for email, endpoint, server, and network with its channel partners Mindware, Redington, and StarLink. Trend Micro will also highlight security innovations across DevOps, collaboration, and cloud apps.

“Trend Micro’s everywhere-at-GITEX approach will help us to get closer to our vendors, our customers, and our channel and alliance partners across every industry vertical and technology,” added Dr. Moataz Bin Ali. “Our proven foresight, XGen cross-generational security strategy, and passionate people can enable Middle East organizations to prepare, withstand, and recover from cyber-threats.”
