    Instead of focusing on stopping threats, a never-ending battle, we are shifting the focus to the end user by enabling risk adaptive protection that dynamically applies enforcement policies to activity and alerts representing the highest risk to an enterprise or government organization. With risk adaptive protection, cybersecurity programs, processes and technology can be uniquely applied to the individual, not just to broad groups of users within the organization, thereby lowering overall risk, accelerating business transformation and reducing cost.
