New research from Webroot tells us that enterprises are deeply concerned about the impact that social networking has on their security.
In a new blog posting the security firm released the results of research conducted with 800 IT professionals in the UK, UK and Australia, in which it found that over three quarters of them think that Web 2.0 malware will be the biggest issue they face this year.
"Eighty per cent of those who responded anticipate Web 2.0-based malware threats will be among their biggest challenges, and 73 per cent said these types of malware are much harder to manage than email-based threats", wrote the firm.
Those firms that are confident they are sufficiently protected seem to be living under an illusion, according to the survey. These firms also admitted to a number of security problems, including attacks from viruses (60 per cent), spyware (57 per cent), phishing attacks (47 per cent), hacking attacks (35 per cent), and SQL injections of their Web sites (32 per cent).
None of which really tally with any "sufficiently protected" claims, although it is kind of in Webroot's interests to paint this rather depressing picture, given that such a strategy is likely to shift a few more units.
