Why is cloud-based sandboxing needed?
Cybercrime is growing more strategic and dangerous each day, using sophisticated attack techniques and finding new ways to install malware and compromise data.
One of the biggest cybersecurity challenges that small and mid-size businesses (SMBs) face is keeping operations secure as their reliance on the Internet and cloud-based services grows.
The reality is, with more than 4.5 billion active Internet users today, the Internet has quickly become a major platform for attacks. Recent research from the 2020 Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report also reveals that 43% of breaches in 2019 were attacks on web applications.
There’s no shortage of ways to try and steal data. Cybercriminals can gain access to a company or individual’s network by embedding false URLs, attachments, and files in phishing emails or by planting misleading links.
The good news is that modern web security measures such as cloud-based sandboxing and secure web gateways are designed to keep pace with evolving web and email threats. For example, secure web gateways inspect every byte of web traffic, even encrypted traffic, and use cloud sandbox software to test suspicious web content for malicious intent.
