11 seconds – the time it takes for the next ransomware attack. Is your organization prepared?

Prevention and detection tools clearly aren’t enough to stop today’s sophisticated cyberattacks. In fact, 76% of organizations experienced a ransomware attack in the last 2 years alone.

It’s time to update the way we understand and prepare for breaches. Organizations must enter the breach containment era by adopting an “assume breach” mindset rooted in a Zero Trust security model. The best way to achieve this is by implementing Zero Trust Segmentation (ZTS).

Sound complicated? It doesn’t have to be. The new Zero Trust Segmentation for Dummies offers a simple guide to implementing ZTS and stopping the spread of inevitable breaches.
