State of Internet Security : Protecting the Perimeter

Over time, many fundamental business activities – marketing, advertising, customer
support, research – have become Web dependent. At the same time, the Web is now
considered the number one delivery mechanism for malware. This poses a significant
security challenge to companies around the world. Compounding that challenge
is the advent of interactive Web technologies known as Web 2.0 (blogs, wikis, RSS
feeds and similar elements that are woven together to form Web pages), which make
it all the more challenging to differentiate legitimate content from those that
pose a threat.
