Why Read This Report

2010 was an exciting year on the malware calendar — the year that brought us Operation Aurora, Zeus, and Stuxnet. Malware is now a widespread problem for both consumers and businesses. Security vendors not surprisingly are jumping on the bandwagon to promote a threat-centric hype, in an effort to persuade you to buy their latest malware-defending products. To truly secure your organization against some of the most insidious malware threats, security professionals must stop chasing the malware flavor of the month. Instead, plan a strategy that will strengthen your fundamental defense DNA. This includes implementing advanced threat analytics, building an attack-tolerant security architecture, and managing security risks upstream to consumers and downstream to suppliers.
