Until very recently, security threats in organizations could be managed with a limited number of solutions comprehensively addressing risks with a high success rate.
Unfortunately, times have not only changed, but they continue to do so at tremendous speed. This fact has generated a technological impulse that has given cyberattacks a critical higher level of importance on which both the business operation and its growth hinge.
