Increasing Malware Volumes

  • Every day, corporations face 14K new malware every hour.
  • Total detected malware count exceeds 1.1B 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.
    • 22K vulnerabilities were discovered in 2022, the oldest being 21 years old.
    • Attackers lure users into executing malicious code and exploiting vulnerabilities.
    • Hidden scripts in email attachments might execute zero-day threats.
    • Industry experts rank the Content Disarm and Reconstruction (CDR) technology high on their priority matrices for network security for the next 2-5 years.

    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

    • Email is still the number one initial attack vector.
    • BEC generated the highest average cost of breaches at $5.01M.
    • Social engineering and impersonation tactics are becoming more sophisticated.
    • Human error is involved in 85% of breaches, making users even more vulnerable.

    While user awareness is an important aspect of any good cybersecurity strategy, cyberattacks target user error, which means information security departments cannot solely rely on awareness and training. This is why industry experts suggest regularly reevaluating the capabilities and efficacy of current solutions when compared to new products.
