And these are just two of the beastly threats stalking the internet, trying to steal your company’s data, money and peace of mind.
With one billion users, the internet offers a vast hunting ground for these attacks. In 2014, about 84 million new strains of malware were created – 230,000 new viruses each day. Large businesses and websites of all types were attacked or had client data stolen, affecting millions of users across the world.
And it’s only going to get worse, as cyber-criminals find new ways to smash through security software. This eBook explores the beastly threats scratching at the perimeter of your company’s computers and IT networks, and where these threats are trending.
