eSentire Report: Volume of U.K. Cyber Attacks Increased by Over 140% in 2018

U.K. Employees are Better at Preventing Phishing and Malware Incidents Than Their Global Counterparts
3 minutes read

LONDON – April 30, 2019 – eSentire, Inc., the global leader in Managed Detection and Response (MDR), today announced the release of its U.K. Threat Intelligence Spotlight, an inaugural report that details the unique threat landscape that small and medium enterprises must contend with in the United Kingdom (U.K.).

Over the last two years, eSentire’s European business has grown by over 90%, with the bulk of its expansion coming from customers within the U.K. This broadened customer footprint has provided eSentire’s Security Operations Centers (SOCs) in Cork, Ireland and Waterloo Region, Canada with a sample size of data that allows for an in-depth examination of the threats facing U.K. businesses and a benchmarking of how they compare to similar companies around the world.

The critical takeaway from eSentire’s U.K. Threat Intelligence Spotlight is that the global growth in botnet activity drove a 140% year-over-year increase in the number of cybersecurity incidents experienced by U.K. businesses. This increase in attack traffic also caused nearly 40% of small and medium enterprises in the U.K to experience at least one cybersecurity incident.

Alex Jinivizian, Vice President, Strategy and International Marketing, eSentire said: “Publishing eSentire’s anonymised U.K. customer data allows security practitioners, IT decision makers and senior executives who are tasked with protecting their businesses to be better informed about the cybersecurity decisions they are making. We hope that this data will not only be a benefit to those businesses based solely in the U.K. but also be of benefit to international businesses that have customers, employees and offices in the region as well.”

Other significant findings from eSentire’s U.K. Threat Intelligence Spotlight include:
