To effectively combat dynamic, Web-based malware, businesses will increasingly need a defense that can respond in real time without manual updates. Cloud-based communities, which connect millions of users who provide real-time Web site ratings, will augment traditional on-premise and desktop defenses. With attacks that exist for as little as two hours, enterprise security systems desperately need real-time protection. In 2010, they will look to cloud services for enhanced security.

  • As e-mail continues to get more secure, the bad guys will shift increasingly to social media and even smartphones as their attack vectors of choice.
  • Multi-relay attacks will continue to grow in prevalence.
  • Mobile workers will still be the most vulnerable to attack.
