OpenText Announces 2021 Webroot BrightCloud® Threat Report

 

Waterloo, ON – 2021-4-20 – OpenText™ (NASDAQ: OTEX), (TSX: OTEX), today announced the release of the 2021 Webroot BrightCloud® Threat Report. Webroot’s unparalleled sixth-generation machine learning security platform provides unique data insights into the timing, tactics, and technologies that threat actors used over the past year.

 

Phishing activity increased significantly in the first few months of 2020, taking advantage of pandemic-induced product shortages and increased usage of streaming services. For the first time, eBay topped the list of brands most targeted for impersonations, with 31.1% of all phishing attacks in the month of February impersonating eBay. In March, phishing activity surged among streaming services YouTube (3,064%), Netflix (525%), and Twitch (337%).

“Gathered from over 285 million real-world endpoints and sensors, and leveraging the extensive BrightCloud network of industry-leading partners, this year’s Threat Report clearly shows how cybercriminals are willing and able to evolve their tactics to exploit collective human interest and current events,” said Prentiss Donohue, Executive Vice President, SMB/C Sales, OpenText. “The findings underscore the need for users and businesses of all sizes to enact a multi-layered approach to data security and protection given the persistent creativity of cybercriminals.”
