Menlo Security: 2022 Cyberthreat Defense Report

Published on

Gauging perceptions on cyberthreats and approaches to protecting organisations.

In 2021, a record 71% of organisations were impacted by successful ransomware attacks, up from 55% in 2017. And if you widen the scope outside of ransomware itself, the news doesn’t get any better.

It’s no secret that the shift to remote work over the last two years has drastically expanded attack surfaces and presented enormous challenges for security teams. Threat actors caught notice and quickly jumped into action. 

In 2021 alone, 85% of organizations suffered from a successful cyberattack, according to the 2022 Cyberthreat Defense Report. 

This year’s report examines the continued growth of these challenges and how security professionals are increasingly looking to cloud-based security solutions to overcome them.

CyberEdge surveyed 1,200 IT security professionals representing 17 countries and 19 industries to understand their perceptions about the industry’s risks, practices, and technology.

Key insights from this year’s report include:

  • How the current threat landscape is fueling ransomware attacks.
  • Why security personnel problems are persisting.
  • How and why IT security spending continues to grow.
  • What organisations are doing to protect the anywhere, everywhere workforce.
