Preventing, Mitigating and Investigating Data Breaches—according to Verizon's 2016 Data Breach Investigations Report, it took attackers just minutes or less to compromise systems in 93% of confirmed data breaches. Further, attackers took the easiest route, with 63% of cases leveraging weak, default or stolen passwords.

Antivirus industry specialists Check Point, says for the first time, ransomware has entered the top three of today's most dangerous malware. Couple this with cloud security and the great growth of the "Internet of Things," and IT professionals have their hands full attempting to safeguard company systems and data.
