8 Important Discoveries for Enterprise Security


SASE Threat Report: Insights and Findings from Cato’s Cyber Threat Research Lab

Cato’s Cyber Threat Research Lab (Cato CTRL) has recently unveiled its groundbreaking SASE Threat Report, shedding light on the ever-evolving landscape of cybersecurity threats. This report offers a comprehensive analysis of enterprise and network threats, utilizing a multi-faceted approach to provide valuable insights for organizations.

The report delves into threats from a strategic, tactical, and operational perspective, leveraging the MITRE ATT&CK framework to identify malicious and suspicious activities across various applications, protocols, and tools on networks. By combining granular data on network traffic flows, security feeds, proprietary ML/AI algorithms analysis, and human intelligence, Cato has compiled a detailed overview of cybersecurity trends.

Drawing data from over 2200 customers, analyzing 1.26 trillion network flows, and blocking 21.45 billion attacks, Cato’s report offers a unique perspective on enterprise security activity. The report covers a wide array of findings, including the widespread adoption of AI tools, discussions in hacker forums revealing emerging threats, spoofing of well-known brands for fraudulent activities, and the vulnerability of enterprise networks to lateral movement by attackers due to unsecured protocols.

Furthermore, the report emphasizes the importance of addressing unpatched systems and the latest vulnerabilities, highlights the varying security vulnerabilities across different industries, and stresses the significance of contextual understanding in detecting malicious activity. Surprisingly, the report also reveals a low adoption rate of Secure DNS (DNSSEC) within enterprises, sparking discussions on the reasons behind this trend.

To explore the full spectrum of insights and findings from the Cato CTRL SASE Threat Report, organizations and individuals are encouraged to delve deeper into the report. With a wealth of information on existing threats, vulnerabilities, and hacking communities, this report serves as a valuable resource for enhancing cybersecurity strategies and mitigating risks in today’s digital landscape.
