How Does this Affect my Network

About ten years ago viruses were written by amateurs, were fairly slow, easily detected and usually came from one source. 

These days they are developed by professional criminals and are much harder to detect and incredibly sneaky.

In the year 2000 there were approximately 10,000 new threats per month.

2015 there are 1 million plus per month or an unbelievable 1000 new threats per hour.

This higher threat will require an holistic approach to securing your network.
