San Jose, California, August 18, 2010
Zscaler today released its Q2 2010 State of the Web report. The report details the enterprise threat landscape and the variety of web based issues plaguing internet users. It details how attackers are staying one step ahead of the game and enterprises are struggling to keep up.
Here are some of the top findings detailed in the latest Zscaler State of the Web report:
"Attackers continue to target end users in the hopes of obtaining valuable data or to compromise machines to build botnet armies," according to Michael Sutton, VP of Security Research at Zscaler. "While the goals have not changed, the techniques continue to evolve." He continued: “It is clear that security vendors must be able to quickly adapt and inspect web based content on-the-fly in order to identify and secure against emerging threats in this continually evolving environment.”
As a Security as a Services (SaaS) vendor with a global network of enforcement nodes, Zscaler encounters a multitude of attacks each and every day. The company’s NanoLog technology, which is game changing in its ability to minimize logs exponentially without losing data, enables real-time reporting at the transaction level, giving Zscaler’s research team an edge in drilling down on or identifying new threats. The new report summarizes the threat activity over the course of the quarter and identifies emerging attack trends.
