Linux Malware: The Truth About This Growing Threat [Updated] - Malware as a Business

Malware as a Business

The malware market is rapidly expanding and evolving, forcing the security industry to keep pace. The success of this market drives rapid innovation - perpetuating growth and encouraging further malicious activity. Threat actors are creating and utilizing increasingly agile and sophisticated malware strains in their attacks, challenging security engineers to build stronger defenses against them. Traditional antivirus software is no longer effective in detecting and combating advanced, modern exploits. Protecting against today’s sophisticated malware attacks requires a comprehensive, defense-in-depth approach to digital security.

According to Verizon, 92.4 percent of malware is delivered via email. Thus, an effective email security strategy is imperative in preventing dangerous and costly infections. Malware is a serious threat to all businesses - an infection can result in significant downtime, recovery costs and reputation damage. Small businesses face a heightened risk because they often lack the resources and funding necessary to support a full-time IT department.
