2020 State of Encrypted Attacks

Cybercriminals know what security experts know: that SSL/TLS encryption is the industry standard way to protect data in transit. Those same cybercriminals use industry-standard encryption methods themselves, devising clever ways to hide malware inside encrypted traffic to carry out attacks that bypass detection. Inspecting encrypted traffic must be a key component of every organization’s security defenses. The ThreatLabZ team analyzed encrypted traffic across the Zscaler cloud for nine months, assessing its use within specific industries. This analysis report  will help you to understand not only the volume of traffic that uses encryption, but also the threats hidden within that traffic.
