Endpoint security risk has become unmanageable in 2017.

To determine the cost and impact of evolving threats, the Ponemon Institute, a preeminent research center dedicated to data privacy and protection, surveyed 665 IT and security leaders. Their responses indicate today’s organizations are struggling to secure their endpoints, and paying a steep cost for each successful attack — $5 million for a large organization or an average of $301 per employee.

Watch Dr. Larry Ponemon and Barkly CTO Jack Danahy as they discuss the report’s most surprising findings in a live webinar.

Preview this year’s key findings:


The Majority of Successful Attacks are Fileless

Attacks are evolving.

This year, over 40% of US businesses were compromised due to fileless attacks and exploits. Overwhelmingly, respondents cited that over-reliance on traditional endpoint security has left organizations exposed to significant risk. Report findings include:

  • 54% of businesses were comprised in 2017.
  • Fileless attacks are almost 10x more likely to succeed than file-based attacks.
  • False positive rates for existing endpoint security solutions are nearing 50%.
  • A successful attack costs an organization on average $301 per employee — or over $5million for a large organization.
