Today it announced its new post-breach enterprise security service called Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection, which will respond to these advanced attacks on companies' networks. Attackers these days are using social engineering and zero-day vulnerabilities to break into corporate networks. According to Microsoft, thousands of attacks were reported in 2015 alone. The company found that it currently takes an enterprise more than 200 days to detect a security breach, and 80 days to contain it. When there is such a breach, the attackers can steal company data, find private information, and damage the brand and customer trust in the company.
The only possible interpretation of any research whatever in the `social
sciences' is: some do, some don't.
