Sophos publishes white paper on the integrated solution to malicious content

Network cables

Experts at SophosLabs™, Sophos's global network of virus and spam research centers, have today published a white paper describing the new and emerging internet dangers that can spread around the world in seconds, and how SophosLabs helps businesses secure against them.

The white paper, "Mind the gap: the integrated multi-tier solution to malicious content", explains that the increasingly complex nature of today's fast-moving threats radically changes the criteria for defense and demands an integrated, multi-tier approach to threat management. Cross-threat expertise and technology in SophosLabs makes Sophos uniquely able to respond to this challenge.

The white paper makes the point that the distinction between different types of threat (such as viruses, spam, phishing, spyware) is no longer always clear and handling the threats and threat entry points as separate problems will leave gaps in network security. SophosLabs combines expertise in both malware and email analysis to ensure that the full range of detection capabilities can be applied to any new threat, closing the window of vulnerability.
