The threat landscape in today’s digital world continues to expand and become thornier. Some of the most popular types of attacks staged by cybercriminals are malware, especially ransomware, and distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks. The attack surface is also expanding due to the increasing adoption of endpoints, creating more entry points for hackers to stage breaches.
