Cyberattacks have intensified over the last few years as threat actors are always improvising their game plan to carry out new and sophisticated methods. Concepts like Ransomware as a Service have made it easy for small threat groups to leverage weaponized services with devastating results for organizations. This highlights how traditional security systems and approaches are no longer able to keep up with the ever-evolving threat landscape.
