Cryptomining has increased 459% from 2017 through 2018 according to the Cyber Threat Alliance (CTA) in a newly released report.
Justin Jett, Director of Audit and Compliance at Pixer:
“As the threat of cryptojacking grows, organizations should be ever-vigilant. Crypojacking steals valuable resources from the business and organizations should carefully monitor what’s taking place on the network to prevent crypojackers from getting a foothold. Network traffic analytics is a critical resource in successfully monitoring and detecting threats like cryptojacking and should be deployed wherever possible. By leveraging the existing data from the network, IT professionals can easily and quickly identify where cryptomining malware has entered the network.”
