“Today most organizations in the region aren’t prepared to defend themselves against advanced cyber attacks. Globally, we find that 96 percent of organizations are breached and 27 percent of those involve advanced malware. The Asia Pacific region is not immune, in fact, its regional tensions and economic dynamism fuel cyber attacks,” said Scott McCrady, Vice President for Global Solution Providers and Asia Pacific and Japan Channels at FireEye. “To expand our reach and help even more organizations defend themselves, we are fostering a strong industry ecosystem across the region. Sean and Lani are valuable assets in this effort.”
