  • Asia-Pacific countries are being used as launchpads for cyberattacks, either as vulnerable hotbeds of unsecured infrastructures where numerous computers can be infected easily for large-scale attacks or as centres for a single point of attack to gain access to the hubs’ global connections. So the demand of file integrity monitoring system is rising in this region.
  • China’s controversial Cyber Security Law (CSL) aimed at protecting China’s networks and private user information with their new law.
