  1. Endpoint security: Prevent, detect and respond effectively to threats against endpoints.
  2. Infrastructure as a service (IaaS) security: Protect cloud-native application workloads and ensure the correct and compliant configuration of cloud infrastructure.
  3. Network security: Verify connections, block or filter suspicious or risky traffic, monitor unexpected network behavior and modernize network security.
