2021 Cyberthreat Defense Report

Jul 06, 2021

In 2020, 86 percent of organizations experienced a successful attack, up from 81 percent the prior year, resulting in the largest year-over-year increase in the last six years.

Security professionals were faced with complex challenges fueled by a global pandemic that dramatically expanded work-from-home programs.

Organizations quickly pivoted their workforces, swiftly accelerating bring-your-own-device (BYOD) policies and introducing new technology to cater to the anytime, anywhere needs of employees. This resulted in a massive playing field for threat actors.

The 2021 Cyberthreat Defense Report examines these pandemic-fueled challenges and how security professionals are increasingly looking to cloud-based security solutions to overcome them.

CyberEdge Group surveyed 1,200 qualified IT security decision-makers and practitioners in November 2020 to understand their perceptions about the industry's risks, practices, and technology.

The sample group consists of respondents from 17 countries, representing 19 industries working in organizations larger than 500 employees.

Topics you will learn about:

  • Why the threat landscape propelled ransomware attacks.
  • How IT security spending increases are slowing.
  • Why the adoption of cloud-based security solutions is increasing.
  • How organizations are addressing the most pressing risks.
