Juniper Networks has announced the U.K. findings of a Ponemon Institute report. Commissioned globally by Juniper Networks, the research highlighted that organisations surveyed in the U.K. are becoming increasingly concerned about the threat of intellectual property theft and confidential information being used to access business-critical systems. 61 per cent of U.K. respondents believe securing web traffic poses a significant threat to network security. Respondents are also seeing the greatest rise to network security in a lack of system visibility, malicious insider risks, and cloud infrastructure.
FireEye®, Inc. has announced the release of “The Advanced Cyber Attack Landscape” report and interactive maps that provide detailed insight into the global nature of malware communication activity related to sophisticated cyber attacks. The research highlights:
Kabel Deutschland, Germany’s largest cable operator, has chosen Tufin SecureApp in order to deploy applications quickly, to improve system availability and decrease its exposure to potential data breaches and hacker attacks.
Ciena® Corporation has announced the results of a Vanson Bourne survey indicating that more than one-third of surveyed European enterprises (36%) have experienced an increase in the frequency of network and data security-related incidents in the last 18 months. These results highlight the increasing need for network operators to deploy a comprehensive security approach that encompasses server security as well as at-rest and in-flight encryption, given that just nearly one-third (36%) of surveyed enterprises deploy in-flight encryption on the WAN links between sites and data centres.
A survey conducted recently by Lieberman Software Corporation reveals that more than 70% of IT security professionals would not be willing to bet $100 of their own money that their organization will not suffer a data breach in the next six months.
Symantec Corp.'s Internet Security Threat Report, Volume 18 (ISTR) has revealed a 42 percent surge during 2012 in targeted attacks compared to the prior year. Designed to steal intellectual property, these targeted cyberespionage attacks are increasingly hitting the manufacturing sector as well as small businesses, which are the target of 31 percent of these attacks. Small businesses are attractive targets themselves and a way in to ultimately reach larger companies via "watering hole" techniques. In addition, consumers remain vulnerable to ransomware and mobile threats, particularly on the Android platform.
Florian Malecki, Executive Vice President of Marketing for Arcserve, discusses the findings of the company’s recent ransomware survey, which reveals that far too many organisations are still unprepared, not least in terms of recovering lost data.

Dr Nando de Freitas, a lead researcher at Google’s DeepMind, recently grabbed tech headlines with his claim that humanity is closer than ever to creating artificial general intelligence. Although hotly contested by many in the sector, this type of technology would have a profound impact on the business community, its operations and how it approaches customer interactions. Instead of training algorithms on existing data sets, super AI might be able to listen, read emotion and extract information in a way that mimics human understanding.
