Recommendations

With more than 20 years of experience in studying malware as it evolved from hacktivism to advanced threats, we still observe that viruses, worms and trojans remain on the top of threats that businesses today encounter on daily basis. It means that whichever industry you belong to, your cybersecurity should be built upon the firm foundation of a multi-layered defense solution, incorporating advanced behavioral detection engine and top-notch expertise augmented with machine learning, powered by cloud-assisted threat intelligence network.
