These numbers don’t add up, and something about these business owners’ laid back attitude just doesn’t make sense – SMB recovery from a cyber attack is estimated to cost around $200,000, and can easily reach millions depending on the extent of the damage (and in case of ransomware – how big the ransom price is).

Security service providers, researchers, and security communities collect and publish a plethora of updated, actionable threat intelligence at every given moment. The big question is – how to make all that extremely useful (yet extremely scattered) intelligence actionable, and how to automatically integrate it on to your security solutions and devices.

2020 has been quite a year. The global Covid-19 pandemic changed up the rules of most peoples’ daily lives, taking a big toll on individuals, businesses and organizations.
