Over time, many fundamental business activities - marketing, advertising, customer support, research - have become Web dependent. At the same time, the Web is now considered the number one delivery mechanism for malware. This poses a significant security challenge to companies around the world. Compounding that challenge is the advent of interactive Web technologies known as Web 2.0, which make it all the more challenging to differentiate legitimate content from those that pose a threat. However, many businesses have not realized that the Web is the primary source of malware today and remain primarily focused on management of email-based threats.
