Emerging Threats Create New Challenges
The continued evolution of the threat landscape has enabled individuals and groups to launch orchestrated attacks on organizations’ infrastructure for criminal or political gain. Attackers now use a wealth of methods to infect hosts and control compromised systems through organized botnets for automated phishing, spamming, and DDoS attacks. DoS attacks are morphing from traditional network layer attacks to sophisticated layer seven attacks targeting application resources rather than bandwidth, flying under the radar of traditional DoS mitigation tools. Organizations now need new tools to protect against these emerging threats and the more traditional hacking methods such as SQL Injection and Cross-site-scripting.
