Globally, sophisticated cyber-attacks are compromising organizations at an uprecedented rate and with devastating consequences. Modern attackers, including criminal organizations, ideological groups, nation states and other advanced threat actors are motivated by a wide range of objectives that include financial gain, industrial espionage, cyber-warfare, and terroism. These attacks are often very expensive for compromised organizations, costing each company an average of USD $7.7M.

Against this backdrop, organizations increasingly expect that its not if they will be compromised, but rather when will they be compromised.
