In 2019, as the volume of cyber attacks continued to spike, cybercriminals were increasingly successful in infiltrating corporations’ sensitive data and information. A lot of these attacks, however, were the result of outdated cybersecurity systems and ineffective handling and encryption of sensitive data. As a result, companies around the world lost millions of dollars and spent countless hours working to clean-up the aftermath of costly data-breaches and malware attacks. As the cybersecurity landscape continues to advance in 2020, companies must have a comprehensive security suite that includes breach detection, EDR, email security and privileged access management software.
Every year, as the cybersecurity requirements of businesses become more complex, technology continues to evolve to meet them. Although new Internet of Things (IoT) devices and cloud-based systems are helping companies run more efficiently, they can also pose significant cybersecurity risks. Cyber risks will continue to grow throughout the next year and enterprises need to ensure that they have a comprehensive suite of products to protect all of their devices and systems from the newest threats.
Every year, the cyber attack vector continues to grow, bringing about new threats and concerns. The ever-evolving cybercrime landscape means security systems, technologies and processes require continuous modernization to keep up. Fortunately, cybersecurity companies are updating their technologies to help match the threat landscape, and 2019 was one of the best years on record for cybersecurity innovation. Here are some of 2019’s best cyber advances that will help companies implement stronger malware detection, endpoint security and other types of threat protection.
When it comes to cybersecurity, different tactics emerge on a daily basis, which can make it difficult to keep up with current trends. Sandboxing and honeypot security are two cybersecurity tactics that are constantly evolving but can be confused. These two technologies are quite different and both offer valuable solutions to various cybersecurity issues. By understanding the differences in these two technologies, businesses can be sure they have the right solution for their cybersecurity needs.
Cyber attacks have been on the rise for the past five years and traditional, passive defenses are no longer enough to protect businesses and enterprises. Many companies are pairing defensive and offensive cybersecurity approaches and are implementing measures like honeypots and deception technologies to protect against future attacks.
Cyber attacks have been on the rise for the past five years and are projected to occur every 11 seconds by 2021. The frequency and sophistication of new-age cyber attacks means cybersecurity efforts need to extend beyond traditional defense methods. As more entities implement offensive cybersecurity, global spending on cybersecurity is expected to reach $133.7 billion in 2022. As a part of these offensive cybersecurity efforts, many companies are implementing proactive measures such as honeypots and deception technology to protect from attack.

Although email phishing has taken many forms throughout the years, the most common type of email scam is also the oldest. Since 2003, black-hat hackers have created domain names and web pages that look virtually identical to actual websites and have linked these copycat sites to vulnerable users via emails. It is increasingly difficult to tell the difference between a real web page and a fake one, especially for companies without sophisticated anti-phishing tools. For all companies, it's important to have the best anti-phishing solutions in place to ensure all data is protected and downtime is avoided.
In today’s age of digital evolution, businesses have more and more endpoints to protect. It is increasingly important for enterprises to have the right endpoint security to assist with malware detection and ransomware detection. While many vendors offer different types of solutions to help mitigate suspicious endpoint activity, cloud-based endpoint security services are becoming increasingly popular. However, there are many risks in using cloud-based services.
Have you ever received an email that looks totally legitimate, links to a website that looks real, and asks for personal information? It is becoming harder and harder to know who and what can be trusted. Phishing is the practice of trying to get an unsuspecting email user to engage with an email in some way (opening, clicking, downloading an attachment, sending money, etc.).
