When it comes to protecting enterprise data, CIOs and CSOs are at a crossroads. The complexity and prevalence of security threats continue to grow, bolstered by consumer IT and mobility. The open nature of IT has
paved the way for far more sophisticated attacks—beyond conventional credit card data theft to multilevel
attacks. Information security executives face perhaps the toughest challenge of their careers.

and users downloading applications at will from the Web. Corporate integration with social media sites
provides a new path for malware to the network—not to mention privacy risks and even identity theft.
Hackers still have many more opportunities to grab enterprise data and are getting smarter by the day.
