It’s fair to say that organizations, particularly larger enterprises, are making more concerted efforts nowadays to invest heavily and quickly into cybersecurity. Just a few short years ago, businesses were content with treating cybersecurity as something frivolous, an optional add-on; a cyberattack couldn’t possibly happen to you, right?

They know they want solutions that are easy to use, easy to implement and get the job done – but where do you start? What’s ground zero for company cybersecurity?
