This whitepaper explains how exploding mobile threats challenge mobile device management (MDM) vendors, carriers, service providers, and app stores to ensure the safety of apps. Consumers and customers will hold these companies responsible for providing adequate security, and employees will expect enterprise IT departments to protect them from malicious mobile apps like they have come to expect for PC malware. The report describes how a cloud-based app reputation service protects against the risks of mobile applications in the wild: • Collects millions of applications from a variety of sources • Stores mobile app data in the world’s largest cloud-based threat database • Analyzes and scores apps on a range from malicious (e.g., known malware such as Trojans or root kits) to trustworth

This whitepaper deals with the rise of mobility, BYOD and social networking, and how these trends have led cybercriminals to exploit vulnerabilities in browsers and mobile apps. For example, more than 30,000 mostly legitimate websites become infected with malware every day. From drive-by downloads to spearfishing to XML injection, web-borne threats represent a significant new risk for businesses. The report describes how to stay on top of this changing threat landscape and prevent damaging attacks with: • 100% protection against known viruses • Industry-leading URL filtering and IP protection via the world’s largest threat database • Extended protection for smartphones and tablets • Simplified web-based management

This whitepaper discusses a major new threat vector — “phishing 2.0.” While many IT professionals have become less concerned with phishing as it seems these attacks only fool naive consumers, a new generation of sophisticated phishing attacks now target businesses. These phish evade traditional antivirus and antiphishing products. Using targeted information — often gathered from social media sites — they fool even security-savvy employees into divulging sensitive information or visiting websites that infect machines with dangerous malware. Learn more about: • Uncovering phishing emails and phishing websites in real time • Limiting the amount of personal information employees expose on social media sites • Leveraging the world’s largest cloud-based threat network

This Webroot whitepaper compares deploying secure web gateways as software or appliances on-premises vs. as a cloud-based service. Lower cost, fast implementation, rapid scalability and less administration are all good reasons to adopt SaaS and cloud-based applications. In addition to these benefits, cloud-based secure web gateways can also provide better security and faster performance than appliances or local servers. It discusses a number of advantages of cloud-based solutions that appliances cannot match, such as: • Better defense against zero-day threats and spam servers • More comprehensive signature and URL database • Supports remote users more securely and without the cost of putting servers in every location

This white paper describes how new threats have stretched the capabilities of “fat client” security architectures to the limit, making it impractical to keep endpoints updated with signatures for all the new viruses. It discusses how a revolutionary approach is making traditional antivirus obsolete by replacing bloated clients and large signature downloads with: • Cloud/client architecture • Journaling and rollback • Behavioral recognition of malware These improve performance and effectively address the new threat environment, which includes protecting against zero day threats.

The problem with the vast majority of network and endpoint security solutions is that they operate on the premise of static whitelists and blacklists. These lists do not account for the changing nature of URLs, IPs, files and applications, nor for the volume of unknown threats permeating the web, meaning they cannot be used to provide adequate protection. Compounding this problem is that commercial network security technology, such as NGFWs and unified threat management systems, can easily flood the organization’s network security teams with too many alerts and false positives, making it impossible to understand and respond to new threats. As a result, not only do these threats evade the security technology and land with the victim’s infrastructure, but they also have plenty of time to steal sensitive data and inflict damage to the victim’s business. The final characteristic of the latest attacks is how quickly they compromise and exfiltrate data from the organization, compared to the
