The Damballa Q1 2014 "State of Infections" report investigates the state of the enterprise under attack. It provides context into the behavior of a new generation of threat operators, statistics on the level of infections seen in a typical enterprise, and the steps businesses should take to better prepare themselves.
In North America, Damballa sees nearly 50% of all Internet traffic and 33% of mobile traffic. The report is based on Damballa Labs' direct observation of more than 400 million top-level Internet domains and over 146 million second-level domains.
The report details some of the latest, sophisticated tactics (such as Domain Generating Algorithms) that threat operators are implementing to quietly gain access to and potentially exfiltrate sensitive corporate and customer data.
