Indusface & Misoft Partner to Strengthen Web & Mobile Application Security in Vietnam
Partnership targets rapid expansion for next generation application security product- IndusGuard
Vietnam is an emerging player in the technology market with a strong growth potential due to a relatively young growing population. Vietnam's IT spending in 2010 was estimated by Gartner at $3.2 billion. According to Business Monitor International, the Vietnamese IT market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 16% over the 2011-2015 period. The addressable domestic market for IT products and services is projected by BMI to reach US$4.1bn by 2015. An increasing number of Vietnamese companies have shown an interest in cloud services. Factors such as rising PC and mobile penetration, economic growth, a range of government ICT initiatives and a drive to develop Vietnam's domestic IT industry will help to sustain continued expansion going forward.*
However, the increasing number of online hacking cases in Vietnam has negatively affected individuals and organizations both domestically and internationally. This has made the need for enhanced web and mobile application security in Vietnam a necessity and the country has been working persistently towards a comprehensive information security system bound together by heightened internet security, electronic commerce, and electronic banking. Vietnam ranked fifth among 10 nations worldwide most at risk from information insecurity in 2010, according to the Vietnam Information Security Association (VNISA). Since then, the Vietnamese government and companies alike have been persistently working towards ramping up security.
