Web applications suffered 52% more attacks in 2019
As per new report published by SonicWall, cyber criminals seem to have shifted their attention from hacking on premise applications to hacking on cloud applications. On cloud web applications such as O-365, Slack, G-suite, which deliver cloud native interfaces or offer web versions to complement on-premise software, are the new focus areas for the cyber criminals. As imperative as it may be, the attacks are likely conducted to obtain more the financial and personal information than monetary benefits.
Once attackers get access into these applications, they infiltrate to gain access to entire network and systems.
According to the SonicWall’s compiled report on cyber security, there were a total of 9.9 million malware attacks during 2019. Out of this, 187.9 million were detected as ransomware attacks. Encrypted threats increased by 27%, thus endangering the security posture of organizations.
