Securing the Network: What Three Key Verticals Require

Perhaps the most neglected element of security is simply network and device hygiene. While new, innovative threats continue to pop up on almost daily, our latest Global Threat Landscape Report reveals that long known and yet still unpatched vulnerabilities continue to serve as the primary gateway for attacks, with organizations reporting an average of 274 attacks per firm – a 82% increase over the previous quarter.

The Primary Factors Driving Cybersecurity Investments in Education

Today’s schools are technology-rich environments. For example, they have long used internal systems to keep and track a variety of records, including the personal data of their students and faculty.
