The InfoWorld Test Center assesses the readiness of 10 anti-spyware operatives for active enterprise duty
In the end, a network’s security is only as good as the people who use it. Tools like these will help ease administrator’s jobs some by providing reporting and logging of user activity and the programs they try to run. All the tools in the world, however, will not prevent a user from copying files to a PC or installing an unapproved application. The enterprise must establish an acceptable use policy for the network and enforce it.
Spyware attacks are only going to continue to gain in frequency and cleverness. Unlike viruses, spyware and adware have a financial goal driving them, and you can bet those spyware writers are doing everything they can to access your network. Make sure you make their job even harder.
