Selecting a Managed Detection and Response Service

By Derek Marin | Mar 12, 2020 8:45:00 AM

In the era of digital transformation, many organizations find it a never-ending struggle to defend against rampant cybercrime. Preventative security is no match for today’s threat actors, yet the advanced cybersecurity capabilities that organizations need are beyond the level of maturity that small-to-midsize enterprises (SMEs) possess.

At the same time, the expanding attack surface makes the IT environment increasingly vulnerable.

Email Security Best Practices

By Derek Marin | Feb 19, 2020 7:28:00 AM

While alternate forms of communication such as Microsoft Teams, Skype for Business, Slack, and other options, grow in popularity, email remains and will not disappear  for any organization, and cybercriminals know this. In fact, most cyber-attacks start over email—a user is tricked into opening a malicious attachment, or into clicking a malicious link and divulging credentials.
