The cyber threat is real

Stay out of the data breach headlines. A single attack costs an average of $3.86 million and can damage your reputation. What difference can your IT platform make?

Breaches destroy trust: 78% would not return to a business.(1)


Breaches are common: Over 6.4 million records are lost or stolen daily.(2)


Breaches seek gaps: 100% encryption is the only way to close them.
