A New Approach to Cybersecurity

Traditionally, cybersecurity strategies have focused on protecting the perimeter infrastructure and layering in multiple point solutions to identify and block threats. This approach remains essential, but it’s not enough. Multiple security point solutions, agents, and management interfaces create opportunities for mistakes and misconfigurations.
