  • A Multifaceted Approach to Detecting Botnets
    + View Summary
    Botnets have unfortunately become a ubiquitous issue for government and enterprise networks, with single botnets known to infect hundreds of thousands and even millions of machines. In a recent study by the Ponemon Institute, 71 percent of firms surveyed found computers in their networks that were part of a botnet.1 By taking over the computers of internal users and directing them to spread attacks and steal data via command-and-control (C&C) servers, botnets pose a particularly nefarious threat.
