Think perimeter security is enough? Think again…

Most of the data breaches you hear about these days are assessed from the server side. Take a recent incident in the financial services industry—a serious malware attack on the Polish banking sector that was tied to a campaign targeting organizations in more than 30 countries. In this case, a web application was infected with malicious code that spread from workstation to workstation. The malware was injected on the server side and then spread to clients using JavaScript embedded in the website. The truth is, this type of attack is the easiest to prevent.
