As adversaries rapidly refine their ability to develop and deploy malware that can breach network defenses and evade detection, the security industry, as a whole, struggles to innovate at a similar pace. This dynamic creates a significant problem for organizations investing in security products and services: They often end up choosing individual solutions to address security gaps, only to create more weak points in their threat defenses.
The Cisco 2015 Midyear Security Report examines these intersecting challenges while also providing updates on some of the most compelling threats. Using research by our experts, it provides an overview of the major threats observed in the first half of 2015. This report also explores likely future trends and offers advice for small, midsize, and enterprise organizations that seek security solutions and services.
