The Impact of Messaging and Web Threats - An Osterman Research White Paper
Messaging, internal, and Web-based threats are increasing in number and severity. The risks to organizations large and small are not theoretical -- there are real problems that users and their employers face if they do not establish adequate defenses against the growing variety of malware, exploits and other threats that are directed against them. In this paper, you will learn the variety of ways messaging and web security capabilities can be managed, how to define a multi-layer defense strategy and implement key techniques, and anticipate future trends in the messaging threat landscape. With messaging security becoming more difficult, organizations are finding they must deploy defenses at all the physical venues where threats may enter a network, or through which users may intentionally or inadvertently send sensitive content; and they must implement a layered defensive strategy to protect against all types of threats.
