Trend Micro Incorporated, a global leader in cybersecurity solutions, on Monday announced the launch of a strategic initiative to bolster the cyber security stance of small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) in Qatar, through its “Worry-Free” services – a suite of SMB-specific security solutions. The company’s goal is to strengthen the nation’s SMBs in their digital transformation journeys through dedicated cybersecurity to protect them in the evolving digital era.
“SMBs are the backbone of our economy as they’re at the frontline creating jobs, adding revenues and contributing to the country’s GDP,” says Assad Arabi, Managing Director, Gulf Cluster, Trend Micro, “They need a strong cybersecurity strategy to back their growth plans and maintain stability as bad actors are becoming stealthier in their approach and consistently looking for vulnerabilities. We understand the security needs of small businesses in Qatar and want to work closely with them, empower them, and do everything in our capacity to protect their digital assets while they achieve new standards in the digital world.”
According to Trend Micro’s Annual Cybersecurity Report for 2021, the company’s security solutions detected and blocked over 42 million (42,32,791) email threats, and more than 6 million (69,03,023) URL victim attacks across Qatar. Additionally, over 1 million (1,657,084) million malware attacks were identified and stopped. And as the country transitioned into remote work, Smart Home Network (SHN) solutions shielded home devices and prevented more than (7,12,525) SHN events. These figures convey that, with the threat landscape evolving day by day businesses need to adopt multilayered solutions to be able to protect their operations in today’s day and age.
