Is there a stealth bomber in your
network?- Palo Alto Networks study
London, April 24, 2013 – It’s not uncommon to hear of corporate networks and government officials under threat due to espionage attacks by sophisticated criminals in China and more recently Eastern Europe.
A research study commissioned by Palo Alto Networks analysed 3000 companies around the world and found malware encrypted to the highest levels in company networks. Traditional company firewalls are unable to detect these problems. The study has revealed people using Facebook at work are unknowingly putting the company at risk by exposing it to ‘invisible malware’ and causing theft of financial data, intellectual property and employee passwords.
