IronPort Reports Infected Desktops
IronPort Systems has issued a report that finds Internet malware such as spam, viruses, phishing, and spyware, that continues to be a major threat to Internet communications.
According to the report, over 50% of corporate desktops worldwide are infected with some type of spyware, and 7% are infected by Trojans or malicious system monitors.
Rootkits and trick loaders, which reinstall spyware and other obfuscation techniques, make remediation very difficult - thus prevention is the key to stopping these threats. Tactics employed by malware authors have also become increasingly sophisticated, the latest being a blended threat which combines spam, virus, and spyware tactics into a single, well coordinated attack.
The company has also announced the launch of the IronPort S-Series, a Web security appliance, which is a gateway appliance designed to stop Web-based malware from entering the network, with near zero-latency to preserve the end-user Internet browsing experience.
IronPort S-Series, the industry’s fastest Web security appliance, was developed because of the increased demand from enterprises to stop and combat spyware, which is, at present, one of the most significant corporate security issues.
