Enterprises Confront The Ugly Truth Of Hidden Malware In Their Networks

CUPERTINO, Calif., July 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Enterprises that have invested time, money and resources into implementing top-tier security products for their organizations were confronted with reality when they took advantage of the Trend Micro security threat assessment - a risk-free, 2-week security assessment that allows Trend Micro to monitor an enterprise's security environment and help them discover how, why and where security threats happen.

Not as Secure as They Think

Enterprises that thought they were secure discovered otherwise: The security threat assessment uncovered active malware and threats that had slipped through existing security infrastructures, and were residing undetected on corporate networks and endpoints on 100 percent of all participating companies from North America, Latin America, Europe and Asia Pacific. On average, these companies have over 11,000 employees and include those from the finance, heath care, government, education and manufacturing industries.

"The results garnered from our security threat assessment prove that as threats become more numerous and sophisticated, conventional security technologies such as endpoint antivirus, Web security gateways, email security gateways and IPS solutions are struggling to keep up," said Jai Balasubramaniyan, director of product management and marketing. "The types of malware we found were more than just a nuisance, they were malicious and designed to steal data."

Trend Micro security threat assessment provides an opportunity for participating enterprises to measure the effectiveness of their current security infrastructure. In just two-weeks, Trend Micro can reveal the answer in a customized executive report that identifies any security gaps and pinpoints exactly where the malware resides.
