Sanjai Gangadharan has been promoted as the Area Vice President, South ASEAN, A10 Networks from the present position he was heading as the Regional Director, SAARC, A10 Networks, where he has served the organisation from September 2015 to April 2021, as per his linkedin profile.
San Jose based A10 Networks serves customers in 117 countries worldwide and enables service providers, cloud providers and enterprises to ensure their 5G networks and multi-cloud applications are secure. With advanced analytics, machine learning and intelligent automation, business-critical applications are protected, reliable and always available.
On the recent interview, Sanjay spoke about direct effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, we also saw a sharp rise in cybercriminal activity. From simple phishing attacks to one of the largest DDoS attacks ever recorded, we saw the cyber threat landscape evolve and grow.
At the same time, we also saw a rapid growth in the tech and cybersecurity industry. From the rollout of 5G in many parts of the world to exponential growth in the SaaS industry, we saw the pandemic put many positive changes into full gear as well.
In 2021, such attacks will not just be more frequent, but they will also be very specific regarding who they target. International cyber espionage will be one of the main motivators for cyber-attacks and we will see security vendors being attacked and compromised at an even greater pace.
The A10 Networks security research team observed that the number of DDoS weapons doubled from around six million at the end of 2019 to 12.5 million in 2020. This trend will remain the same in 2021 as more IoT devices come online with each passing day, with an expected addition of at least five million weapons.
Sanjay said, 2021 will be the Year of Zero Trust Implementation.
