Watchguard recently released its latest report for Q1 2020, providing analytics from 44,000 global appliances. In general, upwards of two-thirds of the total malware detected was hidden in the HTTPS encrypted tunnels to avoid traditional antivirus.
Here are the significant takeaways:
32 million malware variants were blocked during the reporting period
1.7 million network attacks were blocked during the reporting period
67% of malware was delivered via HTTPS connections
72% of malware featured zero-day malware (meaning legacy signature-based AV would have missed it)
