Wake up your endpoints and smell the coffee

With the rapid changes in cyber security over the last few years, it’s vital that threat protection solutions match the exploits of the cyber criminals and meet the needs of businesses and organisations to ensure they remain secure. One of AVR’s key service tenets is to keep close to all of our customers and industry prospects to be certain we have the right solutions.  One way of doing that is to run surveys where we ask the recipients for their views.
