Webroot's spyware audit of several thousand enterprises revealed that potentially thousands of desktop computers inside large enterprises are infected with spyware, including system monitors or Trojan horses. Webroot officials said the audit represents the first comprehensive analysis of the presence of spyware within corporate networks.By Jack M. Germain TechNewsWorld 12/11/04 1:30 AM PT As attention focuses on the increasing spyware threats to enterprise networks, vendors are beginning to view the enterprise landscape as fertile ground for anti-spyware protection. Webroot Software, a developer of Internet privacy and protection software, recently completed the first audit of spyware in the enterprise. The audit found more than 20 spyware elements per corporate computer. Another industrywide survey, conducted by Equation Research for Webroot, showed that corporate networks are being bombarded with spyware infiltration in record amounts, but relatively few corporations are taking adequate steps to combat the threat.
