Zhou Hongyi excavated safety "treasure"

ilovedonews @ 2019/08/23

Zhou Hongyi, a red coat, used the method of free antivirus to create a "subversive" image in the Internet world. This time, he took the 360 plan to once again subvert the traditional network security industry.

In April, after completing the withdrawal of stock from Qi Anxin, Zhou Hongyi said that 360 will not abandon the security market of government and enterprises, and will not compete with a specific network security company to make a specific product, but become a creator and empowerment of a big security ecosystem.

At the ISC2019 conference, Zhou Hongyi formally called out: 360, return to the safety market of government and enterprises, and say that this time is not to compete with all the competitors to become the public enemy of the industry, but 360 does not sell products.

Redefining network security "unicorn"

Zhou Hongyi has repeatedly expressed his disagreement with the criteria for evaluating domestic network security companies. At the ISC2019 conference, Zhou Hongyi specifically mentions a ranking matrix of security companies released by the security cattle. According to liquidity, the 360 row is in the corner.

Zhou Hongyi believes that measuring the safety value of 360 depends on how many loopholes can be excavated every year. Two, we need to see how many APT attacks can be independently found each year. Three depends on how much network security data can be covered.

Traditional safety indicators are hampering innovation, and Zhou Hongyi hopes to define a new "unicorn" standard for the security industry. At the ISC2019 conference, 360 imitated the classic RSA link of the United States, and set up the Chinese version of the sandbox contest. Looking for potential security industry novas from the four dimensions of innovation power (40%), market power (20%), organizational strength (20%) and capital strength (20%), instead of the only income and market value theory.

Network security farewell to "little thief" era

Because the real ability of a network security company in the future is that the number of vulnerabilities it exploits depends on whether it can "see" network attacks. Zhou Hongyi pointed out that in the past few years, a total of 40 hacker organizations in other countries and regions have penetrated and lurked China's network in the past 360 years. Originally, the public think of network fraud, phishing sites, black products, compared with these, is "small thief". Opponents of China's network security industry have been upgraded from civilian hackers and black products to more powerful national level hacking teams, as well as organized hacker criminal groups.

Zhou Hongyi called for a view of cybersecurity from a war perspective. The world is being surrounded by cyber warfare. It also points out the characteristics of network warfare such as "no declaration of war", "admission of state power", "critical infrastructure" and "no attack network".

Blindly stacking hardware and software security products, trying to build the "Ma chin defense line" to deal with network warfare, to deal with national hackers team, in Zhou Hongyi's view, is becoming impractical.

Traditional safety products are difficult to play

This is also one of the reasons for the 360 separation from Qi Anxin. During the ISC2019 interview, Zhou Hongyi revealed for the first time that one reason for selling Qi is that it has become a two different existence with other network security companies. Zhou Hongyi did not want 360 to become another company similar to Tian Xin Xin and the Green League. We sell homogeneity products and sell homogenized services.

More importantly, Zhou Hongyi believes that traditional network security products have little significance to the current network warfare. Because they are hard to prove in security.

360 the goal of the safety of government and enterprises is to provide safety services for party, government and military enterprises. Positioning in the country's cyber warfare helps everyone in infrastructure to help businesses and countries see attacks, blocking attacks and repairing systems. "

Zhou Hongyi has planned three things for 360 government and enterprise safety. First, build a distributed security brain. 360 output big data analysis technology sharing network security brain, help government departments infrastructure enterprises, but also help ecological partners to create their own distributed security brain. Second, share Threat Intelligence and knowledge base. 360 share threat intelligence knowledge base with friends to help upgrade traditional network hardware and software products. Third, empowering customers. 360 help improve customer's ability to deal with cyber warfare, help customers establish emergency response teams, help customers cultivate their talents, etc.    


According to Zhou Hongyi, 360 will become a high-end human resources consulting service in the security field in the future.

Build the next US version of RSA

In specific ways, 360 will build a big safety ecological alliance through self building, investment and mergers and acquisitions.

Zhou Hongyi compared the US RSA, hoping that ISC could also bring more small and beautiful security companies to the Chinese market. Each security company focuses on solving one problem.

In the future, 360 will invest in 50 or even hundreds of security companies, and strive to cultivate 10 listed companies to become a real security ecosystem builder and industrial promoter.

In addition to helping small and medium security companies upgrade, empowering customers will also open up customer resources and endorse 360. Enterprises need to buy products, 360 recommend these network security companies, and then endorse them for solving the distrust and worry of big customers to small companies.

This idea has also been transplanted to China for cooperation. At the ISC2019 meeting, Zhou Hongyi and Avi Disht, chairman of the Israeli Foreign Affairs and National Defense Commission, signed the strategic cooperation agreement between China and the Internet Security Technology Innovation Center on behalf of both sides. They announced that they would jointly set up the China Network Security Technology Innovation Center, and set up the 360 Israeli network security industry development fund, and build a collaborative industrial park with network security technology.

This time, 360 of the safety of government and enterprises is not only free, but also high priced. Zhou Hongyi explained that 360 did not want to become a public enemy of the industry, and only high-end services.

What is the high end to? Zhou Hongyi told us a story about the realization of security vulnerabilities. Israel Corp once sold a Saudi Arabia customer a price of $50 million, and the other side thought it was cheap.

"A loophole can sell five hundred thousand yuan or sell fifty million dollars, I do not know, we have to try."

Next is the new story that Zhou Hongyi led 360 to excavate the safety treasure.
