According to Symantec's 2011 Internet Security Threat Report, the sheer number of attacks has soared 81% since 2010, reaching 5.5 billion. Malware, in particular, is a major source of concern. Malware authors have shifted tactics, away from mass distribution of a single strain that hits millions of PCs, to a micro distribution model where far more unique variants are created. To combat this problem and help organizations cope with a constantly changing and ever-complex threat landscape, Symantec will release Endpoint Protection 12.1.2 later this year. This solution is built on an eco-system of security technologies, including new behavioral and reputation-based protection.
