Posted by Stefanie Kober Tue, 18 Feb 2014 13:30:00 GMT



An October 2013 survey by Bit9 contacted 800 IT and security professionals worldwide. The survey focused on analyzing the challenges of detecting and halting advanced attacks against enterprise servers.

In its third edition, the survey revealed many alarming issues. For example, many organizations have not invested in the proper tools to detect attacks and protect their servers against malware and other advanced cyber threats. In addition, the survey found that for the second year in a row administrative effort for server security remains disturbingly high.

The survey’s most significant findings also include:

  • Only 13% of respondents feel “very confident” in their enterprise’s ability to halt advanced cyber attacks from targeting their servers
  • As much as 25% of respondents “don’t know” if their enterprise’s servers have been hit by an attack
  • Overall confidence in ability to halt or detect advanced cyber attacks on servers has dropped


With server attacks occurring across the world every day, it’s essential to recognize your enterprise’s security vulnerabilities and prevent cyber attacks. For example, utilizing a remote access solution such as HOB RD VPN can fulfill the highest common criteria security and compliance requirement for server-based computing.
