In a recent analysis of a quarter million endpoint devices in 40 enterprises, every single corporate network showed evidence of a targeted intrusion but most of the activity was not yet at the most-dangerous data exfiltration stage.
“No matter how small the network we looked at, no matter what industry, we always found some indicators of a targeted attack,” said Wade Williamson, director of product marketing at Vectra Networks.
The company offers network monitoring technology that looks for traces of behaviors that indicate malicious activity. This is Vectra’s second edition of its post-intrusion report, and includes nearly twice as many companies as the previous report. The companies analyzed range from mid-sized firms with less than 1,000 users up to large companies with 50,000 users or more, and include both existing customers of Vectra as well as prospects getting this kind of scan for the first time.
