IT managers can’t ignore endpoints because most cyberattacks start there
New research by Sophos shows that cyberattacks are rarely discovered on endpoints, even though that is where many cyberattacks start. The survey found that while 37% of cyberattacks on mid-sized organizations are discovered on servers and another 37% on networks, a mere 17% are detected on endpoints and only 10% on mobile devices.
Furthermore, in 20% of cases, IT managers do not figure out how cybercriminals got a foothold on the organization’s systems, while the duration of the breach remains unknown for 17% of cyberattacks. Given this reality, it is hardly surprising that 8 out of 10 IT decision makers would like to have a stronger security team at their disposal.
