WatchGuard’s Internet Security Report - Q4 2019.

WatchGuard’s quarterly Internet Security Report (ISR) is designed to help organizations overcome cyber-threats and recognise the truly statistically relevant risks threatening the security of their data. The report prepares businesses, service providers and end users with the data, trends, research and best practices they need to defend against today’s security threats.

The findings of this report are largely based on quantifiable and statistically relevant threat intelligence which WatchGuard received from tens of thousands of Fireboxes in the field. Rather than guessing what malware or threats will be the most dangerous based on their capabilities, this report will measurably tell you which threats affected the most customers last quarter.

For example, Q4 2019 saw an explosion in zero-day malware, reaching an all-time high of 68% of total detected malware. This is up from the approximate 37% average of 2018 and 2019, making Q4 2019 the worst malware quarter WatchGuard has researched.

Read this whitepaper to learn:

  • The explosion in evasive malware in Q4 2019
  • Q4’s Firebox Feed Results
  • The top story of Macys versus Magecart
  • The best, practical cyber-threat defense strategies.
