This is stated in the last report prepared by the firm Barracuda Networks.

 

Microsoft Office 365 has achieved good results in the EMEA region , where its presence increased significantly.

>

Specifically, according to data presented by Barracuda Networks in a report based on more than 1,100 companies in the EMEA region, 62 percent of the companies s in that area use the Office 365 solutions .

That result implies a significant 12 percent increase compared to the 50 percent obtained in the 2016 edition of the report.

On the other hand, it should be noted that of those companies that do not use the Microsoft cloud office suite today, 40 percent plan to do so in the future.

Of course, it should be noted that although companies are increasingly betting on Office 365 solutions, they do so with fear of cyber attacks and other similar malicious actions .

In that sense, the report revealed that more than 90 percent of participating companies are afraid of ransomware , and 48 percent confessed to having been victims of that type of malware, although only 3 percent of them paid the cybercriminals who had hijacked their equipment.

Finally, as regards the most important attack vectors , email took first place with 70 percent , followed by web traffic with 18 percent and network traffic with 12 percent.
