According to a SonicWall analysis, malware attacks in India increased by 31% in 2022, which should motivate businesses to step up their defences against cyberattacks.
The research also noted a startling 53% surge in “ransomware attacks” in comparison to the prior year, as well as a 10% rise in “intrusion attempts.”
The “2023 SonicWall Cyber Threat Report” also showed a notable increase of 84 percent in “IoT attacks” and a notable rise of 116% in “crypto-jacking attacks.”

Although malware attacks have declined in other regions, according to Debasish Mukherjee, Vice President — APJ at SonicWall, they are still dangerously prevalent in India.
He claimed that threat actors are broadening the scope of their attacks in nations like India while using diverse techniques and focusing on different regions. These threat actors are persistent in their quest for chances and tenacious in their attempts to succeed.
The rise in cyberattacks in India can be linked to threat actors’ developing tactics as well as their investigation of fresh entry points for success, such as IoT and crypto-jacking.
