The cybersecurity threat landscape is evolving rapidly and, unfortunately, becoming more perilous. Cybercriminals are better funded than ever, increasingly securing backing from state-sponsored agents. In addition, today's hackers can access a wide variety of sophisticated attacks and tools that expose vulnerabilities in your defenses. Combined with the explosion of the Internet of Things (IoT) and the rise of cloud computing and open source technologies, malicious actors now have a broad surface to target and easy access to the means to do so. As the landscape evolves, however, several factors remain fundamentally relevant for decision-makers across business, IT and cybersecurity, namely: • Everyone is vulnerable: The vast majority of attacks continue to be financially motivated. Out of 2,216 data breaches tracked in a study by Verizon in 2017, more than 76 percent were financially motivated. As the study notes: "Most attacks are opportunistic and target not the wealthy and the famous, but the unprepared." 1 • Web apps remain the No. 1 target: As cybercriminals develop new tactics to access your systems and data, they continue exploiting web applications as, by far, their leading attack vector. One of the main reasons for this, according to the Verizon survey: "Too many organizations make their jobs easy. Some companies are failing to take the most basic of security measures." 2 This shouldn't be the case. With advances in web application security products and the ability to leverage cloud-based solutions, you can significantly mitigate risk—no matter what size company or what level of cybersecurity technology expertise is available in-house. 1 "2018 Data Breach Investigations Report," Verizon, March 2018 2 Ibid W H I T E PA P E R Web Application Security Buyer's Guide: Leveraging the Benefits of Cloud Web Application Security to Address an Evolving Threat Landscape
