Webroot commissioned a study to gauge the prevalence of web-borne attacks, their consequences, and how IT pros are responding. Among the results, the vast majority of companies surveyed experienced one or more types of web-borne attacks in 2012. The survey report also includes recommendations—such as deploying a secure web gateway—for responding to this new threat environment. Key findings include:
• 8 in 10 companies experienced web-borne attacks in 2012 • The majority of respondents reported significant impacts such as increased help desk time, reduced employee productivity and disruption of business activities • Secure web gateways are a critical component of an effective defense against web-borne threats
