Layered security: Protecting your data, process and investment

2020 was a year of massive change. Companies across the globe took a new approach, including moving more to the cloud and using virtual workflows for the first time. This work-from-anywhere trend came with a price—additional cybersecurity risk.

Cybercriminals raked in more than one trillion dollars globally in 2020, targeting businesses big and small.1 28% of the businesses successfully targeted by cybercrime in 2020 were in the “small business” category.2 Bottom line—your business is a potential target.
