During June 2021, the Umbrella global cloud architecture identified the above totals of malicious queries, organized by threat category.
Stop more cyber threats at the source
Cisco Umbrella’s global cloud architecture delivers unmatched threat intelligence with the power to see and stop more threats faster and more accurately. Our cloud-native global footprint:
- Processes more than 620 billion Internet requests daily
- Features a 96% malware detection rate
- Logs and categorizes 85+ domain content categories in real-time
How Cisco Umbrella describes threats
We use three levels of classification to illustrate the relationships between the types of cyber threats and the threat families in which they have evolved.
Always evolving: watching the threat landscape shift and change
The global threat landscape is constantly evolving and shifting. Cisco Umbrella’s global cloud architecture is always on, tracking more than 32 million phishing attempts and blocking more than 7 million malicious domains on average daily.
Often times, it’s the relationships between different types of active threats and the associated Internet activity to malicious domains that deliver deeper insights into patterns of cyber criminal behavior.
Watch this chart monthly and see which threat types are growing from month to month. Click below to compare March, April, and May’s top ten cyber threats.
Key trends in cyber threats
The pressure to innovate among adversaries is relentless. Every month, we see new threats and new variants. What kinds of threats have you been facing?
Cisco Umbrella’s global cloud architecture helps you learn what is hot and how they are causing havoc. Here you can see query traffic per month from the threats our researchers are actively tracking.
A proactive approach to cybersecurity threat defense
Cisco Umbrella is always learning from new internet events to prevent cybersecurity attacks. Unlike static reputation, our security analytics are always adapting due to live activity. Cisco Umbrella currently protects more than 7 million malicious domains and IPs while at the same time delivering fast internet access — and identifies 60 thousand new malicious destinations daily. And unlike reactive sandboxes, we do not need to collect a sample of an attack.
To achieve this feat, we have:
- A team of world-class engineers, mathematicians, and security researchers who take an innovative and proactive approach to security research
- Use of advanced data mining techniques, machine learning and behavioral models
- Security domain expertise to identify threats and protect our customers
The most effective cyber threat protection in the industry
For the second year in a row, AV-TEST named Cisco Umbrella the undisputed leader in threat detection. Lots of network security providers claim they are the best, but the test results clearly show Cisco Umbrella ranks at the top – crushing the competition.
This new report measured how well vendors provided protection for remote and roaming users. See how Cisco Umbrella, a key component of Cisco’s SASE architecture, stacked up against Zscaler, Palo Alto Networks, Netskope, and more.
