Security Spotlight

The Security Spotlight is sponsored by Malwarebytes




The IT threat landscape has changed enormously in even the past 18 months, almost ruling out the concept of "legacy" in security solutions as something purchased yesterday can be considered compromised. And while most end users are now aware of basics such as two-factor authentication and social engineering, there are new threats coming over the horizon.

Malwarebytes has identified three main current threats to the enterprise: Ransomware; the act of taking information prisoner until a usually paid release, ad fraud malware; duping advertisers into paying for ads nobody will see, and finally the recruitment of Internet of Things [IoT] sensors into botnets.

Check back often to our Security Spotlight - produced with our friends at Malwarebytes - for all the news, analyses, opinion and research into these new, yet clear and present, dangers.
