4 Steps to Combat Malware Enterprisewide
Zeltser, Lenny
Campus Technology, v24 n5 p34-36, 38-39 Jan 2011
Too often, organizations make the mistake of treating malware infections as a series of independent occurrences. Each time a malicious program is discovered, IT simply cleans up or rebuilds the affected host, and then moves on with routine operational tasks. Yet, this approach doesn't allow the institution to keep up with the increasingly aggressive and innovative attack tactics employed by malware authors, who design malware to bypass defenses, evade detection, and resist efforts to remove it. In fact, combating malware in an enterprise environment means not only locating suspicious programs on servers and workstations, but also detecting and interfering with the use of malware on the network. To win the battle for data security, institutions must discover malware propagation attempts and contain infections before they escalate into all-encompassing pandemics. This article offers steps on how to develop a malware strategy that protects an entire campus. (Contains 11 resources.)
