Trend Micro: Users Are Not Secure

Trend Micro announced findings of a study into corporate end user perceptions of and experiences with security threats

CUPERTINO, Calif. -- Trend Micro Incorporated (TSE: 4704), a leader in network antivirus and Internet content security software and services, today announced findings of a study into corporate end user perceptions of and experiences with security threats compared to a similar study conducted in 2005. The study tracked responses from 1600 corporate computer end users across US, UK, Germany and Japan and compared them to analysis from Trend Micro™ TrendLabsSM global threat research network and a similar study conducted in 2005.

Both Trend Micro research and the survey findings recognise an increase in spam between 2005 and 2007, yet fewer corporate end users in the US acknowledge having received spam. UK respondents generally perceive security threats to be less serious in 2007 compared to 2005. However, German respondents by contrast, consider all threats to be more serious in 2007 compared to 2005.

Interestingly, according to TrendLabs threat research, digital threats increased 163 percent between December 2005 and November 2006. Specifically, Web threats grew by 540 percent from January 2005 to January 2007. End users may show a lack of concern for the seriousness of threats owing to the silent and invisible nature of many new infection routines.

Worldwide, viruses, spam and spyware continue to be security threats that end users are most aware of. In particular, in Japan the awareness for spyware increased significantly from 76 percent in 2005 to 93 percent in 2007.
