Siloed Security: Real World Examples of How Attackers Exploit the Gaps

Attackers are bypassing conventional security deployments almost at will, breaching systems in a wide swath of industries and geographies. That's the stark conclusion of new data gathered by more than 1,600 FireEye network and email sensors deployed in real-world networks. Following up on our May 2014 report, "Cybersecurity's Maginot Line: A Real-World Assessment of the Defense-in-Depth Model," we compare data from the original Maginot report to new data gathered in the ensuing months.

In fact, cyber security is now increasingly reviewed by corporate boards of directors and often discussed with financial analysts who see cyber security risk as an imminent and paramount business risk. Because the consequences of cyber security failures can be damaging to business revenues and brand reputation, CEOs have lost their positions as a result of data breaches and inept preparation and planning.
