Advanced Cyber Attacks Occur Up To Once Every Three Minutes
FireEye, the leader in stopping today's new breed of cyber attacks, has announced the release of its 2H 2012 Advanced Threat Report. The report shows that malware activity has become so pervasive that organisations experience a malicious email file attachment or Web link as well as malware communication that evades legacy defences up to once every three minutes.

Drawing on data gathered from 89 million malware events and direct intelligence uncovered by the FireEye research team, the Advanced Threat Report provides a global look into cyber attacks that routinely bypass traditional defenses such as firewalls, next-generation firewalls, IPS, anti-virus and security gateways. The 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. In addition, it offers a detailed look at trends taking place in specific industries, as well as a case study on a sophisticated and sustained attack that was waged during the course of 2012.

"This report provides an overview of how attacks have become much more advanced and successful at penetrating networks, regardless of industry,"said Ashar Aziz, FireEye Founder and CTO. "As cyber criminals invest more in advanced malware and innovations to better evade detection, enterprises must rethink their security infrastructure and reinforce their traditional defenses with a new layer of security that is able to detect these dynamic, unknown threats in real-time."
