All things interconnected to promote "big security" era
Network security industry will welcome a new round of development opportunities
September 12th, 2017, China Internet security conference held in beijing. Most participating experts and business people said that with the rapid application of big data, cloud computing, artificial intelligence and other technologies, everything is becoming reality. At the same time, all kinds of information technology has penetrated into all walks of life and the lives of ordinary people, the network security is no longer a single field of hidden dangers, and become all walks of life to jointly cope with the big security problem.
The Chinese Academy of engineering, Mr Wu said at the conference, as of the first half of 2017, China's Internet users reached 751 million, and the Internet penetration rate was 54.3%. The Internet banking users reached 126 million, half the growth rate of 27.5%; business transaction applications also continued rapid growth of online shopping, online delivery and online travel booking users grew 10.2%, 41.6% and 11.5% respectively. At the same time, artificial intelligence, AR, VR, big data and other emerging technologies, is using the Internet platform for the development of innovative applications, and increasingly widely used. This means that the Internet and all kinds of information technology in the economic and daily life is inseparable, while the threat of network security is increasing.
360 company chairman Zhou Hongyi believes that with the increasingly interconnected reality, the "big security" era also came. He pointed out that, in the Internet of things, vehicle networking and industrial Internet development, infrastructure and applications itself is becoming a target of cyber attacks. For example, in networking, car networking and Internet industry began to use the artificial intelligence technology, and the development of unmanned unmanned vehicles, unmanned aircraft and unmanned systems, once these unmanned systems network attacks, will bring more and more serious security problems.
Zhou Hongyi believes that this year's Wanna Cry extortion virus events, almost can be said to be "big security" era of the most representative annual security incidents. He believes that Wanna Cry virus brought great inspiration to blackmail the global network of criminals, as long as the cyber weapons, even without too much professional knowledge and skills, can also initiate attacks on important institutions, blackmail and impose exactions on enterprises and individuals and gain huge commercial interests. This trend will pose a huge security risk for the upcoming Internet of things.
The face of the network security risks of future growing, the industry generally believe that the requirement for network security technology and application of the rapid growth of network security means that the industry will be driven by the market demand, to usher in a new round of development opportunities, and is expected to be from the traditional network security industry to upgrade to be able to serve emerging service industries the information technology industry.
In recent years, the market demand in the field of network security began to rise. According to PWC and many other third party market organizations statistics, in the past few years, domestic enterprises in the network security investment in the continuous growth, annual growth rate of more than 100%. In addition, the survey also shows that, as the traditional manufacturing industry enterprises intelligent upgrade, new information technology and applications have been constantly adopted, which also further increased the enterprise's network security needs.
360, chairman of enterprise security group Qi Xiangdong introduced, the current domestic investment in the field of network security is still very limited. To enterprise security, for example, the current domestic investment in the field of network security is about 30 billion yuan per year, accounting for only about 1% of all investment in information technology, while in the United States, this proportion as high as 15%. This means that the domestic information security market is still about 15 times the development of space, the market size is expected to reach 450 billion yuan. Qi Xiangdong, the next ten years will be a crucial period for the implementation of the interconnection of all things, car networking, artificial intelligence and other emerging technologies will be rapidly applied, which may further promote the development of network security industry, resulting in higher growth rate in ten years.
