Enterprises need to move towards risk-adaptive protection to meet sophisticated cyber security threats that are growing exponentially, global cyber security company Forcepoint said here on Friday.
"With traditional approaches no longer working and breaches getting bigger, causing more damage and disruptions, the industry needs to move towards risk-adaptive protection to meet today's sophisticated security threats," George Chang, Forcepoint's APAC president, said here.
Chang said that Forcepoint is driving an inflection point in the cybersecurity industry.
The company also released the list of its partner award winners during the gala dinner at its "APAC Channel Partner" conference in Taipei.

"We are delighted to celebrate the success which investment in our human-centric security approach brings to our APAC network of partners," said Chang.
The conference delivered insight to APAC partners on how focus at Forcepoint is shifting to the end user, by enabling risk-adaptive protection to continuously assess risk and automatically provide proportional enforcement that can be dialled up or down.
At the conference, key partners from across the region came together to learn more about Forcepoint's transformation of cybersecurity and the opportunities to grow in 2018 and beyond.
To further support partners in delivering differentiated, human-centric cybersecurity capabilities, Forcepoint announced the appointment of Alex Lim as senior director of channels and alliances for Asia Pacific and Japan at Forcepoint.
