As customer web applications are major targets for hacker attacks and intrusion attempts today, companies must stay updated on the latest security trends and attack techniques. Given the rapid development pace, many companies have difficulties following up on all updates and news. Security services like TrueSec Inspect are invaluable and of great help. My driving force is to assist customers in regard to security issues and services so that they can focus on their service activities instead.”, Markus Millbourn.
