The Enterprise Threat Landscape: Everyone is a Target
PC Today, May 2012, Volume 10, Issue 5
To understand how drastically the security threat landscape has changed in recent years, consider these numbers from Pierluigi Stella, CTO for managed security services company Network Box USA (www.networkboxusa.com). In 2003, when Network Box USA was founded, its network security device ran roughly 20,000 anti-virus signatures. Today, it runs 8 million-plus, along with real-time/zero-day antivirus protection. “The sheer idea of zero-day is entirely new compared with nine years ago,” Stella says.
