This report provides a high-level perspective on threat intelligence from SonicWall’s researchers. Key findings for 2018 include:

  • Web app attacks are up 56%, at 26.8 million

  • Globally, SonicWall logged 10.52 billion malware attacks last year— the most ever on record.

  • There were 26 million phishing attacks worldwide in 2018, and while this shows a 4.1% decrease since 2017, these attacks have become highly targeted.

  • SonicWall’s Capture ATP sandbox service found malware hidden in 47,073 PDFs and 50,817 Office files in 2018. While that may not sound like a lot, most security controls cannot identify and mitigate malware hidden in these files.
