Today’s threats are more sophisticated and successful than ever. According to our Fortinet Threat Landscape Report (Q4 2016), on average, organizations were compromised by more than six active bots communicating back to their command and control infrastructures. Based on botnet activity, it was found 36% of organizations exhibited ransomware activity, so it should come as no surprise that an estimated $850M was paid in ransoms in 2016.
Of course, that implies that the other 64% of organizations that exhibited botnet activity were impacted by other malware – highlighting the importance of stronger measures to deal with the volume and sophistication of today’s threat landscape.
With a dynamic attack surface due to the rise of IoT and cloud services, it’s clear that no one technology will be able to stop every threat. To protect your enterprise against sophisticated threats, it is important to establish a comprehensive and cohesive security infrastructure that is broad enough to cover all attack vectors, powerful enough to run the latest security technologies, and automated to keep pace with fast-moving attacks.
This is exactly what Fortinet Advanced Threat Protection delivers with its integrated, top-rated components spanning prevention, detection, and mitigation.
