Security View exposes the reality of cybercrime and lets our customers know we’re really looking out for them.”

Security View gives customers the option to see topical information about the blocked attacks, such as the specific kind of attack and its origin. This level of awareness will help businesses position themselves publicly as security-conscious organizations.
