"Critical infrastructures, cloud services and internet of things will be under severe pressure in 2017, as cyber attacks continue to mature and expand," said Michael Fimin, CEO and co-founder of Netwrix. "The additional threats are coming from nation-state and sponsored attackers, who are ready to use their power to obtain highly sensitive data from federal governments and large enterprises. In light of the devastating breaches of 2016, organizations need more than ever to have pervasive visibility across their IT environments and make sure their security mechanisms are strong enough to protect them against emerging threats."
