SAN JOSE, Oct. 28, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Zscaler, Inc. (NASDAQ: ZS), the leader in cloud security, today announced the release of its annual State of Encrypted Attacks Report, which tracked and analyzed over 20 billion threats blocked over HTTPS, a protocol originally designed for secure communication over networks. This year’s study found an increase of more than 314 percent year-over-year across geographical areas that include APAC, Europe, and North America, underscoring the need for a zero trust security model and greater traffic inspection than most companies can achieve with legacy firewall-based security models.
- Cybercriminals are increasingly sophisticated in their tactics, and theyre using encrypted channels at various stages of malware and ransomware attacks.
- Zscalers new report on the state of encrypted attacks demonstrates that the most effective way to prevent encrypted attacks is with a scalable, cloud-based proxy architecture to inspect all encrypted traffic, which is essential to a holistic zero trust security strategy.
- Between January 2021 and September 2021, Zscaler blocked more than 20 billion threats over HTTPS, increasing more than 314 percent from the previous year.
- Zscaler blocked over 20.7 billion threats transmitted via encrypted channels over a nine-month window from January 2021 through September 2021.
