CAMBRIDGE, ONTARIO – May 4, 2017 – According to a recent cyber threat report by eSentire, Inc., the largest pure-play Managed Detection and Response (MDR) provider: Rudimentary attacks, such as intrusion attempts, information gathering, and policy violations pose the greatest risk to midsized organizations.
Produced by eSentire’s Threat Intelligence team, the “2016 Midmarket Threat Summary Report” provides an overview of the cyber threats investigated by the eSentire Security Operations Center (SOC) in 2016. The report addresses three key areas: threat types, threat volume, and attack types. The analytical assessment includes visual data analysis, written analytical evaluations, practical recommendations, and key analytical assumptions, providing threat perspective for business leaders in small and midsize enterprises, and actionable takeaways to help leaders strategically reduce the risk of cyber attacks.
“In 2016, the eSentire SOC detected almost 5 million attacks across hundreds of primarily small to medium organizations, spanning multiple industries,” said Viktors Engelbrehts, director of threat intelligence at eSentire. “Cybercriminals are attracted to easy targets because they are low risk, high reward, and require little effort to execute. However, available evidence suggests that the majority of opportunistic cyber-attacks against mid-sized businesses can be prevented by applying basic best practice security principles.”
The eSentire Threat Intelligence team used data gathered from 1,500+ proprietary network and host-based detection sensors distributed globally across multiple industries. Raw data were normalized and aggregated using automated machine-based processing methods. Processed data was reviewed by a visual data analyst applying quantitative analysis methods. Quantitative intelligence analysis results were further processed by a qualitative intelligence analyst resulting in a written analytical product.
“Defending against evolving threats has never been more important for midsized organizations working to guard against financial and reputation-based risk. By addressing the recommendations listed in eSentire’s 2016 Midmarket Threat Summary Report, business leaders will be equipped to disrupt threat opportunities, as opposed to remediating financial damage caused by attacks,” said Mark McArdle, eSentire CTO.
