    As attackers shift to targeting people, the company believes the most effective way to reduce risk is to protect people from the threats targeting them, often through email and cloud vectors. The company provides their customers with deep visibility into who the most attacked people are, how they’re targeted, who are vulnerable to those attacks, and how to protect them more effectively. 

    The company also help organisations identify and quickly respond to data loss resulting from negligent, compromised, or malicious users because data doesn’t lose itself.
