Enterprise Equipment

Enterprises are delivering new experiences and driving smarter operations with connected devices. Enterprises that embrace this transformative technology accelerate responsiveness to new insights, capture new monetization opportunities, and future-ready their organization.

Enterprise Connected Devices

Enterprise connected device firmware typically integrates and stitches together many open-source software (OSS) projects—sometimes upwards of 300!—which means the firmware contains not only the manufacturers bugs, but all the bugs that are in open, third-party components. Not every connected device will be operating the latest and greatest code from the manufacturer; a zero-day mitigation strategy is critical to maintaining a device’s trustworthiness. 

CISA'S Top Routinely Exploited CWE in 2020

Hackers Prefer Enterprise Connected Devices

The top 30 vulnerabilities routinely-exploited in 2020, and the ones widely exploited thus far in 2021, have primarily targeted connected devices. The majority of the vulnerabilities allow malicious cyber actors to perform remote and arbitrary code execution – the ability for an attacker to run malware on a connected device.

Deeper, Disturbing Trend

Marketplaces for selling exploits are growing quickly. Demand, supply, and expected high ROI is fueling the Zero-Day vulnerability marketplace. Nation-state actors and criminal organizations are actively seeking, purchasing, and exploiting Zero-Day vulnerabilities. Researchers sell exploits to either fix or disclose vulnerabilities, which means that fixing exploits becoming ever more expensive.

Are you Protected from Cyberattacks?

The rogue authoritarian regime, North Korea, has used cybercrimes to evade sanctions. Cyberattacks accounted for an estimated 2.77% of the country’s GDP in 2019. The regime raised $2,000,000,000 from cyberattacks for 2016 and 2019, according to a United Nations Security Council Sanctions Committee report.

Global cybercrimes are estimated to reach $6,000,000,000,000 ($6T) by the end of 2021, this greater than the global illicit drug crime market. Cybercrime is expected to continue to grow 15% annually, reaching $10,000,000,000,000 ($10T) by 2025. The average NFL player’s salary is $860,000. In contrast, a cybercriminal with little risk of head injuries, can earn a $2,000,000 salary.
