The rise of large malnets has turned malware into a highly lucrative business model that uses a combination of mass market malware and targeted, advanced persistent threats (APTs) to infect users or steal sensitive, proprietary information.
Web-based threats are device agnostic, targeting users on desktops, laptops and mobile devices alike. The increase in mobile devices with access to the corporate network provides cybercriminals with a new high value target for attacks and creates a potential security risk for businesses.
