Val Rahmani, CEO of Damballa, describes to SC Magazine Deputy Editor Dan Kaplan how organizations are starting to view botnets as a risk management concern, especially considering many businesses do not even realize that, on average, 5 to 10 percent of their endpoints are infected. In many cases, bot malware cannot be detected by conventional anti-virus products, so organizations must detect outbound communications between zombie machines and command-and-control hubs to gain visibility into the problem.
