Over 76 per cent organisations in India were hit by cyber attacks in 2018 as IT security continued to be a major issue across the globe, global cyber security major Sophos said on Wednesday.

According to Sophos’ “7 Uncomfortable Truths of Endpoint Security” survey, IT managers are more likely to catch cyber criminals on their organisation’s servers and networks than anywhere else.

IT managers discovered 39 per cent of their most significant cyber attacks on their organisation’s servers and 34.5 per cent on its networks.

The survey was conducted on 3,000 IT decision-makers from mid-sized businesses in 12 countries including the US, Canada, Mexico, Colombia, Brazil, the UK, France, Germany, Australia, Japan, India and South Africa.

“Server security stakes are at an all-time high with servers being used to store financial, employee, proprietary and other sensitive data. Today, IT managers need to focus on protecting business-critical servers to stop cyber criminals from getting on to the network,” Sunil Sharma, Managing Director, Sales at Sophos India and SAARC, said in a statement.

“They can’t ignore endpoints because most cyber attacks start there, yet a higher than expected amount of IT managers still can’t identify how threats are getting into the system and when.” (IANS)
