The growing number of Internet based attacks by a group of Syrian hackers, calling themselves the Syrian Electronic Army (SEA) has created a growing demand for Israeli Internet security products and services.
That’s because SEA has been unable to do much damage to Israel and that’s because Israel has one of the largest and most successful collection of Internet security firms on the planet. This has long been known, but the SEA success at hacking high-profile media sites everywhere but in Israel has made Internet security (or the lack of it) a big issue.
That, and the fact that security firms worldwide have recently been more successful at exposing the source (China and Eastern Europe) of major hacker organizations and the extent of their thefts in the past few years. Now everyone wants more protection and one of the best sources can be found in Israel.
