RMail is SMART technology that actively hunts attacks that are already underway so you can swiftly dismantle them before they strike. “War is politics by other means,” wrote the famous military theorist, Carl von Clausewitz, back in the early 19th century, which was a time when wars were fairly limited, low tech, and almost gentlemanly affairs.
