DNSFilter's Annual Security Report Reveals Emerging Threats for 2024

DNSFilter announced today the results of its 2024 Annual Security Report, which reviews the past year of cybersecurity data gathered from the company's large network. Across the board, detections of cybercriminal activity are up, with DNSFilter's threat intelligence team observing an increase in phishing, botnet and malware detections in 2023 compared to the prior year. The report is available for download.

Last year, DNSFilter processed over one million queries every second – including both innocuous business queries and those malicious sites that the DNSFilter system is built to protect against. Ransomware actors rely heavily on phishing techniques, social engineering, and links to malicious websites. And according to CISA, 90% of all cyberattacks start with a phishing attack. That's why protective DNS continues to be a critical layer to secure in the modern tech stack.
