The 10 Most Critical Considerations in
Choosing Your Cyber Security

Real-Time Prevention

Your prevention platform should include cutting-edge technologies, like behavioral detection and machine learning algorithms, that can identify and block exploits on networks, cloud, and endpoints, before they execute and infiltrate your network. The ability to prevent patient-zero, so to speak, is critical.

Unified Management Configuration

When you invest in a single security management console, you not only reduce complexity and improve security, you also improve workflow. Multiple consoles means toggling back and forth across 10 or more different systems, leaving some systems unattended while you examine others.

Protection from Every Direction

Locking down everything is critical. The only way to ensure that your network is secure is by ensuring that everything connected to it is secure. Secure your individual computers, phones, tablets, and other extensions of your network.
