The tactics of cyber attackers need to be identified

Debashish Mukherjee said companies and organizations should identify strategies, techniques and methods adopted by cyber attackers to prevent attacks. It is difficult to defend effectively without knowing the attacker’s strategy. Talking about SonicWall’s business, he said that the company gets 55 percent of its business from enterprise customers.
