“In today’s era of digital transformation, large amounts of critical data move in and out of organizations as CIOs modernize their IT architecture to take full advantage of cloud and mobile technologies,” says Forcepoint Asia Pacific vice president George Chang.

“Our partners are helping to address the accelerated demand for human-centric cybersecurity as more and more organizations worldwide recognize the critical importance of securing humans and data in today’s sophisticated threat landscape.”
