In previous webcasts and blogs, I’ve spoken of a woman who was the victim of a terrible ransomware attack as well as an intrusion on her computer. It was her first computer breach in over 25 years of business. When these happened, she was running traditional anti-virus and minimal network security in front of her endpoints.
SonicWall’s mission is to help organizations protect themselves from the growing number of cyber attacks in the fast-moving threat landscape.

To proactively protect networks and data in today’s fast-moving cyber arms race, organizations must be able to collect, analyze and apply threat intelligence to make smart and agile security decisions.

As we know, email is the most popular attack vector used by threat actors to carry out targeted cyber attacks. In fact, more than 90 percent of cyber attacks start with a phishing email campaign.
