Cybercrime has evolved, making it harder for defenders to protect against, detect and stop attacks from entering their networks. As the pace of cyberattacks continues to increase — and the ways threat actors breach and infiltrate systems continue to become more targeted and evasive — our future will increasingly belong to the proactive.
Over the past 12 months, SonicWall Capture Labs threat researchers have diligently tracked the meteoric rise in cyberattacks, as well as trends and activity across all threat vectors, including:
- Over 623 million ransomware attacks globally, an astounding 105% increase
- Ransomware volume increased 232% since 2019
- U.S., U.K. ransomware climbed staggering 98% and 227%, respectively
- Log4j vulnerability exploits eclipsed 142 million in six weeks
- 65% increase in ‘never-before-seen’ malware variants identified
- Encrypted threats increased 167% year-over-year
- Record 97.1 million cryptojacking attacks found
These exclusive findings are now available via the 2022 SonicWall Cyber Threat Report, which ensures SMBs, government agencies, enterprises and other organizations have the actionable threat intelligence needed to combat the rising tide of cybercrime.
As the world grappled with the challenges of 2020, such as the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, 2021 brought its own set of challenges. Healthcare, the automotive industry, cybersecurity, travel, retail and other industries were all affected by supply chain problems in 2021.
Over the past 2 years, cyber security faced a few challenges of its own, highlighted by two major incidents: the SolarWinds attack in December 2020 and the Log4j vulnerabilities in 2021.
From ransomware to crypto-jacking, 2021 saw cybercrime rise across the board. Download the full version of the 2022 SonicWall Cyber Threat Report for a look at why threats are skyrocketing, which areas are being hardest hit, and what you can do to avoid being targeted, full of research on cybercriminal behavior, industry trends, and insight on what 2022 might have in store.
