If you ask the typical CIO to rank what keeps them up at night, chances are cybersecurity would top the list. The burgeoning digital transformation and critical nature of business data makes companies particularly vulnerable – as hackers attempt to capture, disrupt and compromise sensitive information. The FBI estimates more than 4,000 ransomware attacks currently impact businesses each and every day.
