Social networking is IT security's ground zero: Kaspersky
ITBusiness Canada, By Jeff Jedras
With its launch this week of its 2011 consumer offerings – Kaspersky
Internet Security 2011 and Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2011 – security vendor Kaspersky Lab aims to take the battle to what it calls IT security's ground zero: social networking.
Beardmore, director of product marketing in Kaspersky's consumer
business division, said they're still seeing staggering growth in
malware samples, with 30,000 new threats and 3500 new signatures being
identified daily, and 30 million spam messages being sent every day.
