2018 Cyber Threat Report


SonicWall have just released their 2018 Cyber Threat Report.

The annual report compares and contrasts advances made by both cybersecurity professionals and global cybercriminals over the previous twelve months and you can view it in full on our website.

SonicWall technology protects more than 1 million networks across the globe and their research makes it clear cyber attacks are now the No.1 risk to business, brands, operations and finance.

Report highlights:

  • 9.32 billion total malware attacks in 2017, an 18.4% year-over-year increase from 2016
  • Ransomware attacks dropped from 638 million to 184 million between 2016 and 2017 but Ransomware variants increased by over 101%
  • Traffic encrypted by SSL/TLS standards increased 24%, making up 68% of total traffic
  • Without SSL decryption capabilities in place, the average organisation will see almost 900 attacks per year hidden by SSL/TLS encryption
  • SonicWall identifies almost 500 new previously unknown malicious files each day
