“The increase in banking trojans is more concerning than the specific number of malware strains discovered. There’s a big difference between an unwanted, but harmless, application and one designed to steal money from your bank account. The increase in malware is an indicator of the growing cybercrime industry. As the potential for profit increases, there’s a corresponding investment in tools, which is often malware. Malware use increases because it’s successful. Relying only on anti-virus or a network-based tool to detect malware simply isn’t enough. Organizations have to take a more complete and more sophisticated approach to protecting their endpoints.”[/su_note][su_box title=”About Tripwire” style=”noise” box_color=”#336588″]Tripwire is a leading provider of advanced threat, security and compliance solutions that enable enterprises, service providers and government agencies to confidently detect, prevent and respond to cybersecurity threats.
