by Sabrina I. Pacifici on April 3, 2013

“This report provides a detailed, current look at the nature of advanced threats targeting organizations today. Drawing on data gathered by FireEye® from several thousands of appliances at customer sites around the world, across 89 million events, this report provides an overview of the current threat landscape, evolving advanced persistent threat (APT) tactics, and the level of infiltration seen in organizations’ networks today. Key findings include:

  • On average, a malware event occurs at a single organization once every three minutes. Malware activity has become so pervasive and attacks so successful at penetrating legacy defenses—network firewalls, Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS), and anti-virus (AV), that once every three minutes organizations on average will experience a malicious e-mail file attachment or web link, as well as malware communication—or callback—to a command and control (CnC) server. Across industries, the rate of malware activity varies, with technology experiencing the highest volume with about one event per minute.”
