2020 was a tumultuous year – social distancing and remote work has changed the way we look at securing a company and their employees. 2020 was also the year of cybersecurity breaches – in many markets we saw as much as a 400% increase in breach activity. These breaches are reminders that nobody is immune to being hacked, regardless of company size or industry. Additionally, it presents a pivotal opportunity for you to ensure your customers are properly protected from threats.
