Stay out of data breach headlines

The data breach threat is real. A single breach can cost millions, damage your reputation, and erode client trust – and it only takes one hole in your perimeter for cyber-attackers to get in. Selective encryption of sensitive data still leaves you vulnerable. You need the most secure platform.

Know the truth about data breaches

They’re costly: The average breach in 2017 cost $3.6 million.

They’re increasingly likely: The chance of a breach keeps rising.

One hole is enough: A gap in your perimeter defense can easily lead to a breach.
