Global Threat Intelligence Report 2017
NTT Security 2017 Global Threat Report (GTIR) shows phishing attacks responsible for three-quarters of all malware.
The 2017 Global Threat Intelligence Report (GTIR) is the most comprehensive report of its kind, based on analysis of over 3.5 trillion logs
over the past year from NTT Group operating companies, including NTT Security, Dimension Data, NTT Communications and NTT DATA, and data from the Global Threat Intelligence Center (formerly known as SERT) and NTT Security research sources, including global honeypots and sandboxes in over 100 different countries in environments independent from institutional infrastructures.
Security is a business problem.
Researchers identified more than 6.2 billion attempted attacks
over a 12-month period and monitored threat actors using nearly every type of attack. With visibility into 40 percent of the world’s internet traffic, and the inclusion of data from the 10 SOCs and seven research and development centers, NTT Security is able to provide a highly accurate representation of the ever-evolving global threat landscape.
The report highlights the latest ransomware, phishing and DDoS attack trends and demonstrates the impact of today’s threats against global organizations.
