WatchGuard's 2014 Security Predictions.

23 December 2013

WatchGuard® Technologies, a leader in integrated security platforms, today revealed its annual security predictions for 2014. Assembled by WatchGuard's security research team, the list includes expected advances in ransomware, hacking of IoT (Internet of Things) devices, critical infrastructure exploits and a data breach of HealthCare.gov.

"With shadowy government agencies building their own botnets, huge data breaches like the one Adobe suffered, and nasty file damaging malware like CryptoLocker, 2013 was an exhausting year for cyber defenders," said WatchGuard Technologies' Director of Security Strategy, Corey Nachreiner. "However, with new security visibility tools now available, 2014 should be the year of security visibility. And, although the threat landscape will continue to evolve at a blistering pace, with clever new exploit techniques and criminals focusing on new targets, security professionals should be able to use these new visibility tools to swing the cyber war pendulum back in their direction."
