"Cybercrime continues to be a highly profitable business for cyber criminals who are getting smarter and their attacks more sophisticated," said Phil Goodwin, Research Vice President at IDC.

This includes security functionality that allows targeted companies to detect and stop the attack in its tracks Veeam's new announcement offers significant enhancements to cyber protection capabilities.
