Now that EveryApp has seen the Pandapocalypse attacks occur in real time, will they need to sing another chorus of “Where do we go from here?” next episode? Most likely!

How the Command Center Can Help

Network and IT security is no longer a point solution placed on the perimeter. It’s no longer one simple scenario that has a linear playbook of answers. Today’s malicious actors are attackers on all fronts of the ever-expanding enterprise. When businesses make a move to enable themselves with new technology, those that would cause harm won’t be far behind in exploiting any open and available sieves.

The EveryApp team made the right call to visit the Cambridge Command Center to assess the current threat landscape and learn the steps toward rapid remediation. But tomorrow will be a different day.

What about your organization? Are you prepared for today’s threats? What about tomorrow’s unknowns?
