Trend Micro welcomes the announcement of allocations and amendments to encourage the digital economy under Budget 2018. These initiatives underline how Malaysia remains on the right track, and taking another step forward towards becoming a fully-developed digital economy.
The measures to strengthen Malaysia's commitment to the Digital Free Trade Zone (DFTZ) will further invigorate the country’s eCommerce industry and enable local businesses to capitalise on the opportunities from the internet economy and cross-border activities. This is also in line with Trend Micro’s continuous investment of resources and efforts in supporting this digital transformation growth in Malaysia,” said Goh Chee Hoh, Managing Director, Trend Micro Malaysia.
With more Malaysian businesses making the shift to online and digital platforms, their exposure to vulnerabilities remain omnipresent. There is exponentially more data generated and shared across the ecosystem between partners, customers and the organisation. Balancing the opportunities of potential market growth while keeping security issues in check becomes more important than ever.
Businesses and the public alike must continue to be aware of the evolving security threats, especially in light of an increase in worldwide ransomware attacks.
“Trend Micro has always been committed to educating and working closely with the public and private sectors as well as industry players to smoothen the transformation to online and digital platforms, by addressing increasing security vulnerabilities through virtual patching with minimal to no impact on operations,” he added.
