“We’ve not had any attacks, I’m happy to say, since the makeover occurred. I have seen, through the visibility of the reporting and the alerting, that attack attempts have been made. But now I can see it happening and I’m aware that is happening before it happens.” – Brad Burdette, Systems Analyst, Macon-Bibb County Housing Authority
