Survey: Web Threats Expose Businesses to Data Loss

Survey: Web Threats Expose Businesses to Data Loss

Webroot commissioned a study to gauge the prevalence of web-borne attacks, their consequences and how IT pros are responding. Among the results: the vast majority of companies surveyed experienced one or more types of web-borne attacks in 2012. The survey report also includes recommendations - such as deploying a secure web gateway - for responding to this new threat environment.

Key findings include:

  • 8 in 10 companies experienced web-borne attacks in 2012;
  • The majority of respondents reported significant impacts such as increased help desk time, reduced employee productivity and disruption of business activities;
  • Secure web gateways are a critical component of an effective defense against web-borne threats.
