Trustwave: Companies learn of malware attacks faster, but still slow

Companies still need great help trying to shorten time of malware infection to discovery and resolution, according to a study from Trustwave

Although companies are learning of malware infections and other security breaches faster than previous years, very few companies are able to detect these issues on their own, according to a study by security firm Trustwave. It took an average of 134 days from intrusion until the breach was detected, which is two and a half months faster than what it took in 2013 - but with malware becoming increasingly sophisticated, this is still a rather worrisome trend.




Malware self-detection is just 29 percent, according to the study, with third-party companies informing those exposed of the security breaches.


"That's just a horrible statistic in general," said Karl Sigler, Trustwave manager of threat intelligence, in a statement to CSO. "That's a phenomenal statistic compared to in the past. Sometimes breaches would take months to actually contain."
