a leading global provider of innovative network intelligence and security
solutions for service providers and enterprises worldwide, today announced the
release of its 2020 Europe Cyber Threat Report. The 2020 trends presented in
this report include:

 
* Phishing attacks against consumers increased an average of 718% compared
with 2019.
* Phishing comprised 51% of all cyberthreats against consumers.
* Allot blocked more than 2 billion cyber threats against protected consumers.
 

The Allot Cyber Threat Report is released quarterly and covers threats that
are detected and blocked by Allot Secure
(https://www.globenewswire.com/Tracker?data=QPkYnDS-FjVYI1ecPOZeemS3-RrnIirPDp4TkwDFailJgFNer1WDmvuAqsvDghv690c6U0SmCpdMDkvT32m5wrJt6ccLnhQrxtU98fu2j1JXugD6Nu1jnHHubSZXxHGq3ezdac1M2CJQVup7aIKp6UULH4UrZDsCAuXH0Q60oACz0rrwpAKlCO0o6tPs85iA)
for European CSPs. In this report, Allot tracked a number of trends affecting
consumers, including phishing, adware, malicious downloads and more. The
report notes a sharp increase in Covid-19-related threats. In January 2020,
phishing attacks accounted for only 5% of all threats blocked by Allot Secure
solutions in Europe. By April, at the peak of the first wave of Covid-19,
phishing attacks rose to 56% of all blocked attacks. This reflects how cyber
criminals took advantage of their victims’ sensitivity to Covid-19 themed
threats as the impact of the pandemic increased.

 

This data was reported by European CSPs whose consumer customers are protected
by Allot Secure. Allot Secure is a family of network-based cybersecurity
solutions that provide the tools for CSPs to offer their consumer and SMB
customers zero-touch, clientless protection from attacks including malware,
viruses phishing, ransomware plus parental and content control services. Allot
Secure services provide a unified experience for consumers on any device no
matter how they connect to their data – on the mobile network, through their
home router and as guests on Wi-Fi networks.

 

“As a company that develops and integrates cybersecurity services for
communication service providers, Allot is out in the field, helping our
customers protect their customers from the effects of cyber crime on any
device, wherever they are,” said Dr. Yael Villa, Senior Vice President
Cybersecurity Division at Allot. “Although we measured a significant jump in
consumer-facing phishing attacks in 2020, our research shows that Allot
solutions also blocked over a billion other threats including malware, spyware
and host of other types of attacks.”
