Guarding Against Enterprise Attacks: Application Segmentation and Security

January 14, 2015

The major data breaches of 2014 should be clear warning signs for all network administrators and application owners: attackers have become professional. Organizations now face potential exploitation by hackers, criminal gangs and foreign governments. 2014 saw more than 697 separate data breaches in the U.S., according to an October report from the Identity Theft Resource Center (ITRC). The organization estimates the 2014 attacks exposed over 81,443,910 personal records of customers, patients, partners and employees. Data breaches across industries and verticals demonstrate that any company can be a potential target. Wall Street Journal reporter Jennifer Smith writes, “law firms, accounting firms and other contractors are increasingly common targets for cyberattackers looking to grab valuable information such as intellectual property or details on pending deals.”
