Major Retailers Experience 161% Increase in Attempted Hacker Attacks, According to SecureWorks
Date:12/4/2008

ATLANTA, Dec. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- SecureWorks(R), a leading Security as a Service provider, reports they have seen a 161% increase in the number of attempted hacker attacks they are blocking for their retail clients. Attempted attacks increased from an average of 56,000 per client per month in the first six months of the year to 133,000 per client per month for the last five months.
