Industry Recognition

Website Security and Threat Report

In March, Sectigo released a new threat report that found websites are attacked 172 times per day, eight attacks per minute, and there are currently 4.1 million websites infected with malware worldwide. The report found that cyberattacks, especially automated ones, are on the rise, primarily due to skyrocketing bot traffic. The findings highlight the need for a comprehensive security solution. The company’s suite of security products designed to protect SMBs from attacks of all kinds can combat these rising threats.

Sectigo Identity-First Security Summit

The company hosted its first annual Sectigo Identity-First Security Summit from April 5 to 7. The three-day virtual event featured leading industry analysts, cybersecurity veterans, technology vendors, and company leadership discussing the future of digital trust. Nine hundred IT and business leaders worldwide attended the event to learn how to take their businesses to the future with Sectigo’s identity-first security approach. The summit presentations remain available to view, and the virtual platform has received 5,000 visits to date. Registrants will receive access to 13 keynotes and on-demand sessions for 90 days.
