The Real Threat of Cyber Attacks

Cyberattacks are on the rise, and traditional security approaches are failing. In fact, in the first half of 2022 alone, 236.1 million ransomware attacks occurred worldwide. Nearly 80% of organizations are struggling to detect threats hidden within encrypted traffic for a number of reasons. Experts say that detecting a breach can take an entire 287 days, increasing the risk of a successful attack. This increased difficulty that certain softwares are having with deterring cyberattacks means that analysts must respond to a high volume of alerts without knowing which is the greatest threat.

Dark space is another threat to network security. Dark space accounts for 70% of networks, and IT professionals aren’t fully confident in the security of their devices. Perhaps the most concerning aspect is that almost 60% can’t secure against encrypted traffic threats, and 91.5% of malware arrives over encrypted connections.
Security challenges from encrypted traffic include issues with securing sensitive private data, latency, costs, complexity, and added administrative burden. Over 40% of enterprises feel that they don’t have a good understanding of how to detect and protect against attacks using encryption to bypass legacy security solutions. While there are several problems that still remain within the world of cyber security, many platforms are actively working to respond to these hidden threats. The future of cybersecurity is bright, as long as these solutions and efforts to deter suspicious behavior continue to be successful through the use of network detection and response.
