About 52% of IT specialists believe that enterprise networks will be increasingly targeted by hack attacks, posing serious challenge to IT administrators, according to a survey conducted by B2B International in July 2012.
One third of those surveyed believe that sooner or later their corporate network could face a targeted cyber-attack.
Targeted attacks would be the third most likely threat in the coming days, posing challenge before the IT specialists to defend their infrastructure – servers, workstations, corporate mobile devices.
Amidst reports of hackers using sophisticated malwares as cyber weapons, only 27% have heard about Stuxnet, and 13% – about Duqu.
Earlier this year, security researchers had uncovered a massive cyber attack that attempted to steal data from Middle Eastern countries and has been operating undetected for up to two years.
The survey was carried out in partnership with Kaspersky Lab covering IT professionals working for large and medium-sized businesses.
