After an exhilarating RSA 2019, where WhiteHat Security announced that NTT Security has signed a definitive agreement to acquire the company and cybersecurity vendors from all segments of the market came together to show their innovations to the world, it’s time to reflect on some of the key themes and concerns resulting from the show.
Over the past year, data breaches, through web, business, and mobile application exploitation, have continued to run rampant. In 2018, major household names like Ticketmaster, the United States Postal Service (USPS), Air Canada, and British Airways were hit by application-based exploits.
Today marks a big step for WhiteHat Security. I am delighted to announce that NTT Security Corporation, one of the world’s most respected security organizations, has signed a definitive agreement to acquire WhiteHat Security.
The RSA Conference (March 4-8, 2019) kicks off today in San Francisco, serving as a timely and important reminder of the criticality of securely building products in an increasingly unsafe digital world.
In 2018, the number of exposed data records through breached applications more than doubled from 197.6 million in 2017 to 446.5 million. And this trajectory will likely continue through 2019.
Each year, by the time the calendar changes to February, for many, the interest in maintaining the New Year’s resolutions made in early January has started to wane. While increasing work life balance, eating healthier and losing weight frequently make the resolutions list, what about resolutions to help safeguard data?
Staying on top of the evolving threat landscape is a daunting task, to say the least. There is just so much information that researchers must sift through, that it’s easy to become overloaded.
With an expanding client roster, key executive leadership appointments and widespread adoption of its platform, 2018 was a banner year for WhiteHat Security, one that saw more than 35 percent growth and the highest customer retention to date.
Throughout the past couple of years, we have seen massive data breaches affect hundreds of companies across all industries. Due to these incidents, companies have lost millions of dollars in revenue and time as they rush to mitigate damages, inform the public and fix the problem at hand.
January is a time for new beginnings, and for many people, that means exploring new job opportunities, or even embarking on an entirely different career path.
