Thanksgiving is the perfect opportunity to look back on what we've been the most thankful for throughout the year. While 2021 has certainly had its fair share of challenges, our team at SeedSpark is thankful for the tech that has kept us protected and connected through all of the ups and downs. From cybersecurity solutions to time-saving techniques, here is the top tech that we're thankful for in 2021!
Password managers are a lifesaver! With hundreds of passwords protecting our accounts, it can be a lot to keep up with. As a LastPass partner, we're happy to have access to one of the industry's top tools for managing passwords to access accounts with ease. A password manager simplifies your login experience across the web to deliver single sign-on capabilities and enterprise-level security through advanced MFA that takes the worry and the hassle out of digital security. It's a win-win in our book!
Phishing attacks have run rampant in 2021, with 74 percent of organizations having experienced a successful attack! As malicious emails continue to increase in frequency, AI-powered email security delivers the assurance that your inbox is protected from today's attacks. SeedSpark partners with Ironscales to deliver industry-leading protection that brings artificial intelligence to the inbox, scanning messages and identifying alarming trends before a user is ever even at risk. By proactively monitoring both active threats and flagged messages from users in your organization, Ironscales brings together machine learning with human feedback to create a stronger defense against today's attacks.
Speaking of AI, we're thankful for the digital assistants that help us each day! From Siri and Bixby to Alexa and Cortana, AI simplifies the way that we work and helps us get the information that we need to accomplish our tasks each day. However, AI does so much more than just tell us the time or the weather. Artificial intelligence has allowed cybersecurity tools to go beyond a definitions-based approach to protection, delivering antivirus and antimalware tools that evolve alongside today's most powerful attacks. Rather than relying on a predetermined set of threats alone, AI works hand-in-hand with the traditional approach to cybersecurity to deliver exception protection that keeps your team secured.
Phones, tablets, digital assistants, and more - today's leading tech is powering the way that we work and connect to keep us closer together than ever before! While it's important to strike a good work-life balance, new devices are constantly pushing the boundaries of what's possible in our world today to help empower us to create a better tomorrow. Whether it's optimizing the way that we work today or creating groundbreaking opportunities for tomorrow, smart devices are coming together to give users every tool that they need to succeed.
Finally, we're thankful for the people that we get to connect with! While the last two years has been incredible challenging, technology has continued to bring families, friends, and co-workers together like never before. Whether they're separated by a few miles or a few thousand miles, users around the world are now able to connect and collaborate in realtime to share ideas and experiences with more ease than ever before. In the business world, Microsoft's updates to Microsoft Teams throughout 2021 have created a more seamless experience that brings together the real and virtual worlds as more companies turn to a hybrid model for their employee experience. Whether you're hosting a webinar, raising your hand to ask a question in a large meeting, or coming together for a virtual companywide meeting with Teams' Gallery view, the employee experience has never been more vibrant in the virtual world. From our clients and team to friends and family, we're happy to be able to connect and share more together than ever before.
As we're rounding out 2021 and looking toward the year to come, it's guaranteed that cybersecurity threats will continue to rise. However, it's also a guarantee that technology will continue to evolve. New tech will keep delivering more ways to protect ourselves while also enabling us to achieve more in our personal and professional lives.
