We live in an age where cyberattacks have become natural occurrences in companies’ everyday operation. Hacking statistics show that there is an attack every 39 seconds, while phishing attacks account for more than 80 percent of reported security incidents, and almost all malware arrive on computers via email, precisely 94 percent of them. It is safe to assume that cyberthreats will be more sophisticated and more frequent, hence powerful protection against them is of the utmost importance.
