2020 has been a challenging year for most businesses, especially for those that lacked business continuity planning and technologies to support it. As we all learn from the good and bad of the year, we all have to agree on something: things will be radically different in 2021 and beyond!

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.
