Anatomy of a malware attack
Protect your users everywhere from malware in just minutes
Malicious software, commonly known as malware, is a catch all term for just about any software that’s designed to disrupt, damage, or force access to a computer system or network. Some of the most common types of modern malware include trojans, spyware, adware, ransomware – but malware threats constantly evolve.
As users increasingly work from anywhere in diverse ways (remote location, home, on the road, coffee shop, and more), many organizations find that their perimeter model of data-center centric cybersecurity is no longer sufficient.
