Forrester report highlights Web 2.0 threats

Secure Computing and its customers have boosted protection measures in the wake of a commissioned Forrester report on escalating Web 2.0 threats.

The September study – Internet Risk Management In The Web 2.0 World – found most companies were slow to respond to the latest threats and that Web 2.0 has worsened malware issues.

Australia and New Zealand country manager Eric Krieger says the report found companies can’t rely on Web 1.0 technology for security anymore.

“Web 1.0 is reactive to viruses, but companies need to be proactive.

“You need to have a look at the security policy that you implement and how well you are ready to react to web-borne threats. These threats now arrive in a Trojan PDF file, or a keyboard sniffer that records every key stroke.”

Krieger says Secure Computing’s customers have stepped up their security as a result of the report. “We’ve put out an initiative called SWAT (secure web anti threat) that provides guidance and education on threat protection.”

Secure Computing has passed on the report’s findings to its local distributors MPA and Snappernet.

The report also found that 97 percent of companies surveyed considered themselves prepared, though 68 percent conceded there was room for improvement.
