2020 Microsoft ATP Report

In the most thorough analysis of its kind, Avanan security analysts classified over 500,000 malicious emails, sent to real end-user mailboxes protected by Microsoft's Advanced Threat Protection (ATP). This research identified the types of attacks that were blocked by ATP or EOP, and the types of attacks that were missed by both.

Overall results:

When looking over all malicious emails, the analysis concluded that;

  • EOP catches widespread, previously-known methods: about 41% of all attacks.

  • ATP catches many zero-day attacks that bypass EOP: 48% of malicious emails.

  • 11% of malicious emails reach the inbox, bypassing both EOP and ATP.

When measuring ATP as an independent layer of security, it misses 18% of the malicious emails that bypass EOP. In some environments, the miss rate can be much higher.

The Microsoft Teams Security Report

As firms and workers across the globe went remote, it was Microsoft Teams that saw the bulk of growth for chat and collaboration.

The growth has been exponential and stunning. Teams usage in December 2020 is estimated to be 115 million daily users, growing from 32 million in early March 2020. After what appeared to be an early pandemic rivalry with Slack, Teams quickly became the de-facto communication and collaboration app for anyone using Office 365. Now, 91 of the U.S.’s 100 largest companies use Teams. Twenty organizations with more than 100,000 users use it, with major organizations like Coca-Cola, Pfizer and Accenture, to name a few.

The success of Microsoft Teams has also made it ripe for hackers. In fact, as this year of explosive growth comes to an end, we’ve begun to see and learn how hackers are targeting this platform for data, personal and corporate information, and as a jumping-off point for other attacks.

For this whitepaper, Avanan analyzed nearly 200 enterprise customers for two months. In doing so, we were able to uncover current hacking activities and trends in Teams, as well as assess the overall cybersecurity risk involved in using the service.
