WatchGuard identifies top five threats to the enterprise

WatchGuard top threatsWatchGuard Technologies, one of the key players in the secure appliances and unified threat management (UMT) field, has just released a summary of its research conducted by WatchGuard's Rapid Response team. By tracking attack patterns over the last three years, they have identified the five key threats afflicting the enterprise:

  • DNS system attacks
  • Virus and malware
  • Buggy Web applications
  • Hacking for profit
  • End users
