Doing Battle with Advanced Malware

Advanced malware has arrived, and these advanced attacks are most often unknown and can't be detected or stopped by traditional, signature-based defense tools. To gauge enterprise awareness and activity level in battling today's security challenges, we surveyed the Webtorials subscriber base. We found a surprising and refreshingly respectable level of awareness of advanced malware and its security challenges. We also learned that measures to defend against it need some beefing up to detect advanced malware, halt it, and repair any damage that's already been done. Among our key findings, we discovered that  good portion of enterprises are aware of advanced malware and consider it a "huge" or "significant" concern; and while enterprises don't seem to experience a massive volume of advanced malware incidents each week, they do spend a substantial amount of time resolving the few that they do get. More details about what IT professionals are doing is included in this Webtorials State of the Market Report, along with some specific recommendations for how you can protect your network from this growing threat.
