Duo de Segurança analisou o estado de segurança 4.6 milhão de dispositivos endpoint, incluindo 3.5 milhões de celulares. Os dispositivos foram retirados de várias indústrias e regiões do mundo, o que torna a análise bastante abrangente e indicativa.
The study was based on indicators such as outdated operating systems, browsers and plugins typically exposing endpoint devices to vulnerabilities. Regarding mobile phones, the enabled security features have also been assessed.
o análise also illustrates the results of the company’s simulated phishing campaigns. Phishing is still the most effective social engineering method often leveraged to steal user credentials and sensitive data, compromise outdated software and grant remote access to enterprise and business apps.
Overview of Duo Security’s Findings
31% of assessed endpoints are running Windows 10 whereas only 15% were using it last year. Enterprise security is slowly improving as companies are gradually moving to Microsoft’s latest. Infelizmente, 13% of endpoint devices are still running an unsupported version of Internet Explorer which directly exposes them to a range of malicious attempts.
As for mobile security, só 27% of Android devices are on the latest version of Google’s operating system, enquanto que 73% of iPhones are running iOS 10 ou mais tarde. As to why there’s this major difference between Android phones and iPhones, Android devices are often designed to wait for manufacturers and carriers to roll out updates, pesquisadores explicam.
The EMEA region appears to be more intact with security when compared to North America. In EMEA 40% of devices are running the latest possible version compared to only 31% in North America.
What about the security of devices in various industries?
não é de surpreender, 87% of the endpoints in the technology segment are running Windows 10. Infelizmente, the healthcare and machinery sectors appear to be quite vulnerable with only 16% e respectivamente 6% of endpoints running the latest operating system.
Regarding the often targeted healthcare sector, data reveals that 76% of endpoints are running Windows 7. Windows XP is found on 3% of endpoints. We have discussed the dangers of running an unsupported version of Windows many times, and recent events have once again illustrated these risks in actual attacks.
Phishing Continues to Be a Major Threat
o 3,575 simulated phishing campaigns (Com mais 80,000 recipients) carried out by Duo Security reveal that 62% of the attempts obtained at least one user credential. 68% of them had at least one outdated device. 44% of the recipients in the simulated attacks opened the email, e 25% clicked on the provided link.
These numbers mean that about a quarter of recipients could have visited a malicious website.
