2022 Cortex Xpanse Attack Surface Threat Report

The Cortex® Xpanse™ research team studied the global attack surface by monitoring scans of 50 million IP addresses associated with 100+ global enterprises and discovered that the more things change, the more they stay the same. For the second year in a row, RDP exposures topped the list of issues facing organizations.


However, we also discovered that organizations face varied threats depending on what they have to protect, whether it is financial data, intellectual property, personal data or even human life.


The biggest threats facing the global attack surface are not making headlines for being the hottest new exploits or brand-new vulnerabilities; they are threats in common protocols and software – simply because security is hard, and mistakes happen.


Knowing the threats, finding them and monitoring for future mistakes can help keep us all safer. Protect yourself with knowledge. Download the “2022 Cortex Xpanse Attack Surface Threat Report” and be prepared.
