A recent research shows that 3% to 5% of enterprise computers are compromised with targeted attack/bot malware, even though up-to-date security tools are being used.

“In the battle between malware and security technologies, yesterday’s signature-based solutions have lost” said Bill Guerry, VP of Product Management and Marketing for Damballa. “For 54 days not only can enterprises who rely on AV not find compromised hosts, but even if they somehow discovered a system was compromised, they would not be able to remediate it.”
Damballa's study included over 200,000 malware samples scanned by a leading industry antivirus tool over six months.
In addition, the study also unveiled that almost half of the 200,000 malware samples were not detected on the day they were received and that around 15% of the samples remained undetected after 180 days.
