SonicWALL, Inc., San Jose, Calif., a leading provider of intelligent network security and data protection solutions, has released its mid-year summary of the top cybercrime trends for 2010. From July 1, 2009 to June 30, 2010, the company tracked computer threats worldwide using its Global Response Intelligence Defense (GRID) network. The GRID contains millions of SonicWALL anti-spam and e-mail security servers located worldwide, to proactively protect networks from intrusions and malware attacks. Based on GRID data, SonicWALL identified the current and future top security threats, including intrusions, malware, antivirus and e-mail security breaches that consumers and institutions face. "For nearly 20 years, we have tracked cybercrime and reliably protected our customers against the latest threats," said Boris Yanovsky, vice president of software engineering at SonicWALL. "Each day, SonicWALL helps corporations stop over 3 million malware attempts, 400 million intrusions, and 400 million SPAM e-mails. We watched cybercrime shift from simple scams, such as phishing exploits, spoofing of organizations, worms and viruses, to more sophisticated attacks shutting down network servers and cloud-based systems affecting both companies and individuals. Our research is part of an ongoing mission to dynamically adapt our products and services to enhance security for our customers."
