Subex, a leading Internet of Things (IoT) and critical infrastructure security solutions provider, has announced it has partnered with the Town of Florence, Arizona to provide security to its critical public infrastructure. An agreement to this effect was recently signed by Florence and Subex.
Once critical infrastructure comes online, it becomes vulnerable to cyber-attacks. In 2017 alone, cybercrimes inflicted USD 445 billion of costs on the global economy (as per data shared by the World Economic Forum). The frequency and complexity of multi- tier attacks have been increasing with hackers using a range of tactics, applications and compromised devices to launch attacks at a global scale on utility infrastructure. The core motivation behind these attacks is to cause widespread disruption and inconvenience to citizens and other stakeholders.
