Home PCs, servers and networks endured an increase in cyber-attacks as Ops staffs at financial services firms worked remote for the majority of the year due to the pandemic, relying more heavily on cloud-based systems. Align was awarded Best Cyber-Security Solution because of the teams dedication to providing effective protection against malware, ransomware, data hacks and new security challenges.
