LONDON--(Marketwire - March 2, 2011) - Cyber terrorism has been announced the biggest threat to national security. Protecting access to information of vital importance to governance is the biggest challenge today, as the information domain has proven very attractive as the next area of conflict and warfare. Therefore, cyber security is on top of most agendas of governments and companies, what was showed at the latest Munich Security Conference this year.

Driven by the increase in the dependence on information the cyber security market is witnessing an unprecedented growth in the next decade. Aggressive product innovation and improvement will drive wider adoption of cyber security solutions.
