2022 Attack Surface Threat Report

Exposed: Is Your Attack Surface Truly Unique?

You may think your attack surface is unlike any other, and you may be right, but your exposures and risks likely look very similar to those in your industry and, in some ways, very similar to most other organizations.

The trouble with those similarities is that once malicious actors launch a successful attack on Company A, they know their chances of successful exploits into Companies B-Z increase.

The first preventative action you should take? Get the latest Cortex Xpanse Attack Surface Threat Report and understand the risks.

The Cortex® Xpanse research team studied the global attack surface by monitoring scans of 50 million IP addresses associated with 100+ global enterprises and discovered that the more things change, the more they stay the same. For the second year in a row, RDP exposures topped the list of issues facing organizations.

However, we also discovered that organizations face varied threats depending on what they have to protect, whether it is financial data, intellectual property, personal data or even human life.

The biggest threats facing the global attack surface are not making headlines for being the hottest new exploits or brand-new vulnerabilities; they are threats in common protocols and software – simply because security is hard, and mistakes happen.

Knowing the threats, finding them and monitoring for future mistakes can help keep us all safer. Protect yourself with knowledge. Download the “2022 Cortex Xpanse Attack Surface Threat Report” and be prepared.
