This report, by the Websense Security Labs™, summarises the significant findings of Websense researchers who analyse results from the Websense ThreatSeeker Network. The report includes information and statistics about:

  • Web security, at a time when 82% of malicious web sites are hosted on compromised hosts
  • Email security, where a shift to blended threats using email as a lure and web links remains strong as 92% of email spam contains a URL
  • Data security, where complete integration for data-aware defences in web and email gateways is key for data loss protection (DLP)
  • Mobile security, which requires web and email security, data loss and theft protection, malicious app and malware protection, plus device management
Significance of the 2012 Threat Report
Websense Security Labs discovers and investigates today’s advanced security threats and publishes its findings. This information is used not only to inform the public, but also to inform the ongoing development by Websense of sophisticated security defence strategies for web, email, and data.
