Today’s cyberthreats are constantly changing as hackers use increased computing power and artificial intelligence to make their zero-day attacks more effective. And with 93% of organizations having been attacked in the past three years, it’s only a matter of time before you’re the target.
As cybercriminals become more sophisticated in their attacks, we understand that it’s getting harder for you to mitigate them. All it takes is one unpatched system, malicious URL, or malicious file for cybercriminals to gain access to your network, encrypt files, and deploy ransomware.
While backups are still essential for restoring your data, they’re not enough to protect your business alone. You need to adopt a comprehensive cyber protection approach with best cyberprotection solutions to help mitigate the risks associated with today’s modern threats.
Why advanced Cyberprotection is needed?
Traditional tools are not designed for today’s cyberthreats. The patchwork of software that businesses have historically relied on – for backup, patch automation, anti-malware, configuration management, etc. – does not work together, leaving you with a complex set of legacy solutions that are unable to protect your data, applications, and systems.
