Recommendations

With more than 20 years of experience in studying malware as it evolved from hacktivism to advanced threats, we still observe that viruses, worms and trojans remain on the top of threats that businesses today encounter on daily basis. It means that whichever industry you belong to, your cybersecurity should be built upon the firm foundation of a multi-layered defense solution, incorporating advanced behavioral detection engine and top-notch expertise augmented with machine learning, powered by cloud-assisted threat intelligence network.

*These statistics are based on results from an online survey of 5,266 business representatives from companies with 50 and up to 4,999 employees around the world, conducted in 2020 by Kaspersky and B2B International. Statistics based on less than 30 respondents should be used with caution, due to this being a low base. The significant increase in the IT security budget in 2020 may be caused by the change of the survey sample for several verticals and significant fluctuations in budgets in these verticals.

** The methodology for measuring endpoint protection has been changed: now it represents the penetration of endpoint protection in businesses meaning the proportion of corporate endpoints (both physical devices and virtual endpoints) that have endpoint security software installed in the average organization of this vertical and segment.
