Tech advances like the cloud, mobile technology, and the app-based software model have changed the way today’s modern business operates.

They’ve also changed the way criminals attack and steal from businesses. Criminals strive to be agile in much the same way that companies do. Spreading malware is a favorite technique among attackers. According to the 2019 Data Breach Investigations Report, 28% of data breaches included malware.
