Santa Clara, California, January 6, 2009
Zscaler, the industry-first, multi-tenant SaaS security service, announced today that it has released its 2009 web security predictions. The predictions focus on a variety of factors influencing the landscape today including cloud computing, mobile devices, increased complexity in browsers and web applications and changing business needs. Rather than looking at general trends in technology or security overall, the Zscaler predictions focus specifically on recent changes in web technologies and user behaviors and investigates how attackers are likely to exploit these new paradigms.
"2009 will be an intriguing year," according to Michael Sutton, VP, Security Research. "With the emergence of revolutionary changes such as cloud computing, widespread adoption of next generation web application technologies and the 'real' web arriving on mobile devices, we must anticipate that attackers will adjust their tactics to leverage these shifts. Likewise, companies must adjust their security posture to ensure that they're staying ahead of the curve and protecting against tomorrow's attacks before they become a reality."
