What kind of technology trends have affected your company, and how has your company dealt with those trends? Perimeter security falls short in today's modern landscape. With the emergence of cloud, containers and agile DevOps the need for boundless security has evolved. There is also lack of visibility into point security products that don't communicate with each other. This creates additional gaps in security. Our Zero Trust, simplified Micro-segmentation platform provides better visibility, access control, protection and enforcement.

What are the greatest obstacles and/or challenges that your business has faced? How have you and your business overcome them? The challenge of any new business or technology is educating the public of the benefits. The larger Enterprise businesses that have paid "Security Analyst" have quickly caught-on, as 91% of our Customers are Fortune 500 businesses, but the product was designed to be just as effective for SMB business. We are using community focused platforms and leveraging existing relationships to make a BIG splash in the market!
