Continued @ Help Net SecurityCoreTrace announced the results of a revealing new survey that found most of the IT staff polled felt the threat from malware is on the rise and three quarters stated they are not confident traditional blacklist-based technology is protecting them against threats.
Two-thirds believe that blacklisting protection should cost less than five dollars annually. Over half of those surveyed concluded the lack of protection against an increasing number of zero-day attacks as a chief cause for blacklisting-based solution concern, as well as the performance impact of virus scans and the cost of signature subscriptions. Further, more than half of respondents indicated they have considered discontinuing use of blacklisting for malware protection altogether.
