More than one third (34 percent) of respondents who reported experiencing a spear phishing attack in the past year (17 percent of all respondents) believe that attack resulted in the compromise of user login credentials (e.g., usernames/passwords) or unauthorized access to corporate IT systems.

Proofpoint, Inc. (NASDAQ: PFPT), a leading security-as-a-service provider, recently announced findings from a survey of security IT enterprise decision makers, about email and information security trends.

"The findings from our June 2012 survey reinforce what many industry analysts and security experts have already noted — that targeted attacks against large organizations are extremely common and surprisingly effective in compromising user credentials and corporate IT systems," said David Knight, executive vice president of product management for Proofpoint.

This slideshow features key findings from the survey.
