Vishak Raman, Vice President of Sales, India, SAARC and Southeast Asia Fortinet said, "In the second half of 2022, drive-by compromise topped the list across India as the most common malware delivery approach. This method involves attackers gaining access to victims' systems while browsing online and getting them to download malicious payloads."

"To protect against these advanced persistent cybercrime tactics, organisations need to focus on enabling machine learning-driven coordinated and actionable threat intelligence in real-time across all security devices to detect suspicious actions and initiate coordinated mitigation across the extended attack surface," he further added.
