Increasing Malware Volumes

  • Each day, corporations face 14K new malware every hour.
  • Total detected malware count exceeds 1.1 B until 2022.
  • Polymorphic generators can hide actual viruses from AV scanners.
  • AV signature database update (exposure time) is typically between 2-16 hours.

    Increasing Sophistication

    • 12% of zero-day email threats bypass at minimum one gateway scanner.
    • Hidden script in email attachment turns corporate PC into a zombie.
    • The victim device launches further DOS attacks on behalf of the victim.
    • EU may sanction victims (and corporates) whose PCs are involved in an attack.

    Increasing Data Breaches

    • Email ranks second in the storage of sensitive data.
    • The cost of data breaches increased significantly by 9.8% between 2020 and 2021.

    Increasing Employee Risk

    • BEC generated the highest average cost of breaches at $5.01 million.
    • Social engineering and impersonation tactics are becoming widely sophisticated.
    • 85% of breaches involve the human element, thus users are even more vulnerable.

    Since cyberattacks take advantage of human error as the weakest link, information security departments should not rely solely on user awareness. In their 2021 Market Guide for Email Security, Gartner® recommends to regularly reevaluate the capabilities and effectiveness of your current solution compared to new products.
