Anatomy of a Botnet Report

One of the greatest challenges in Internet security today is how to contain the global scourge that is the botnet. Botnet authors and their criminal organizations are continuously developing innovative ways to recruit new victims into their networks and monetize them.

  • Who are the people behind them?
  • Why are they so prevalent, and what motives are behind their use?
  • How do attackers create and deploy a botnet infrastructure?
  • How to determine if a system is already part of a botnet?

Not only is the volume of email traffic rising but with it, the complexity of malware with the presence of blended threats combining spam, viruses, worms and spyware. To help ensure optimum service and security for our customers, we needed an effective multi-layered solution that combined antivirus, anti-spam and anti-spyware technologies in one appliance. FortiMail met our performance requirements while providing ease-of-use and management to our IT team which is essential as we do not have the time or resources to deploy and maintain separate point solutions.
