“With the growth of 5G, we expect anywhere between 15 to 20 billion IoT devices by 2025. This is an incredible opportunity for these devices to be compromised and subsumed into botnets” to be used in DDoS attacks, he says.

In this video interview in advance of a virtual executive round table discussion in Asia on the topic Future DDoS Trends and Mitigation Strategies in 2020 and Beyond, Ng discusses:

  • The changing DDoS landscape;
  • The challenges around offering effective anti-DDoS products to the market;
  • The relevance and effectiveness of managed DDoS mitigation as a service.

Ng is the CEO of Nexusguard, responsible for the vision, strategic direction, growth and performance of the firm's flagship cyber security products. He strongly believes in challenging the status quo of existing market solutions and has created a unique solution that simplifies the DDoS problem for service providers. Pior to his appointment at Nexusguard, Ng was General Manager at Rotary Engineering Limited, a listed company on the Singapore Stock Exchange.
