    The cloud based security services provider opinions that companies operating across the world, irrespective of the business field they are in, should proactively plan to secure their infrastructure from all kinds of cyber threats including ransomware attacks.

    It’s perceived that security related conversations will dominate the year 2022, as data storage can no longer be leveraged without accountability.
