Stopping Internet Threats Before They Affect Your Business by Using the IBM Security Network Intrusion Prevention System

The authors look closely at network-related security risks such as targeted attacks, worms, bots, intrusion attempts, phishing scams, and so on. These threats target vulnerabilities in IT systems, workstations, and applications and can have a crippling financial effect on all organizations, disrupting business processes, and causing loss of confidential and proprietary information. To better understand how these threats are targeting the users organization, they examine the composition of today's IT network perimeter, which has been diluted from a well-defined set of ingress and egress points to a mesh of undetectable flows from devices that are capable of accessing and penetrating every organization's resources.
