In today's Web 2.0 world, software is more distributed than ever before. Employees download a variety of Internet applications on a regular basis, with each new download altering system configurations and increasing your exposure to malicious software. Financially motivated cybercriminals are designing malware attacks to specifically bypass traditional security methods and ultimately gain access to networks with sensitive information. Organizations have traditionally invested heavily in Anti-Virus solutions, often stacking multiple layers along the data path in an attempt to stop malware from infecting endpoints. While AV plays a crucial role in identifying known malware and cleaning infected systems, the reality is that relying on layers of the same defense mechanism leaves organizations exposed to attacks and data theft.
