Low-Code Security Automation for Japan’s Growing Security Operations Challenges

As the Asia-Pacific region grapples with a widening global cybersecurity workforce shortage, Japan has seen a significant 37.9% increase in the gap between the current workforce and the number of cybersecurity professionals required. That’s a serious disparity that puts organizations at major risk of cyberattacks. Security operations teams in the region are overwhelmed by manual, repetitive, and time-consuming tasks need to track, mitigate, and respond to security events.

Our unique approach to security automation caters to the demanding and expanding security operations requirements of the region. By implementing low-code security automation, we are dedicated to helping organizations in Japan effectively tackle persistent cybersecurity threats.
