Stay ahead of the evolving threats.
Organized crime is driving the rapid growth and sophisticated evolution of advanced threats that put entire website ecosystems at risk, and no organization is safe.
The stealthy nature of these threats gives cybercriminals the time to go deeper into website environments, very often with severe consequences.
The longer the time before detection and resolution, the more damage is inflicted. The risk and size of fines, lawsuits, reparation costs, damaged reputation, loss of operations, loss of sales, and loss of customers pile up higher and higher.
The complexity of website security management and lack of visibility across website ecosystems is further impacted by the fact that it is nearly impossible to know how and where to allocate resources.
Website security must be evolved in line with these growing threats and challenges.
Online where the reputation and success of your business is often measured by the trust that your customers have in the security of your website, it is important to understand how you can maintain and build on that trust. To that end, SSL/TLS has been the key to trust on the Internet for more than a decade and will continue to be so when it comes to providing the highest levels of protection against evolving cyber security threats. And while, yes, the technology is sophisticated and leading edge, the goal is simple: to make the Internet safer to transact business—for you, your customers and everyone else with whom you interact online.
Please use this document as a reference to understand the threat landscape and understand how you can protect your company and your infrastructure.
Businesses face an increasingly complex set of threats to their Web applications—from malware and advanced persistent threats (APTs) to disgruntled employees and unintentional data leaks. Although there is no single security measure than can prevent all threats, there are some that provide broad-based mitigation to a number of threats. The use of SSL encryption and digital certificate-based authentication is one of them. Changes in the way we deliver services, the increasing use of mobile devices, and the adoption of cloud computing compounded by the ever-evolving means of stealing information and compromising services leave Web applications vulnerable to attack.
In this chapter, we turn our attention to the combined risk of losing data and losing customer trust.
Web-based systems are essential tools for running business processes and delivering services to customers. However, phishing and online fraud undermine customer confidence. In addition, Web security remains a top concern because of constantly evolving threats.

Hybrid cloud security is a hot topic, especially with the massive growth of public cloud providers like Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft® Azure™ and Google Cloud. With the emergence of the hybrid cloud, where workloads are deployed across physical, virtual, and cloud, security professionals are constantly being challenged to evolve their security practices to adapt to this new architecture.
Trend Micro Hybrid Cloud Security, powered by XGen™, takes a blended approach. It combines multiple cross-generational threat defense techniques for protecting hybrid environments. When one technique isn’t effective against a given threat, another will step in to eliminate the threat.
