"From the attackers, we have seen deliberate, targeted and cunning attacks that exploit people, processes and technology. On the business side, however, digital transformation and increased use of the cloud are expanding the scope where hackers can attack. For this reason, the businesses need a partner who combines it human know-how with advanced security technologies to better detect, correlate, respond to threats and repair damage. "

As mentioned above, the first half of 2019 saw a significant increase in fileless attacks. At the same time, more threats have emerged that are not detected by traditional filters security, as they can be run in the memory of a system, in the registry, or exploit legitimate tools. A large increase (136%) was also recorded exploit kits.

It was also found that attacks on routers increased by 64% compared to the first half of 2018, confirming once again the researchers' forecasts.
