Thrive’s 2021 Year in Review

Thrive’s 2021 Year in Review

2021 was a very exciting year for Thrive and not just because it was an especially busy year for protecting against cyber threats. With many businesses settling into an extended remote work scenario, organizations began to think seriously about the long-term security plans for their remote workforces and their increasingly exposed assets. According to a study by Fortinet, ransomware attacks alone increased by 10.7x last year. Consistent with this and other demonstrated increases in attacks, Thrive’s own 2021 year-end report indicates a paralleled rise in attacks and increased cybersecurity action as a result.
