Attacks Spur Intrusion-Detection Efforts 5/28/98; 12:00 PM EST By Rutrell Yasin, InternetWeek Corporate America's key asset -- intellectual property -- is at risk. Of the 320 Fortune 1000 companies interviewed by WarRoom, 69 percent were the targets of information espionage last year, while 53 percent reported attacks in 1996, according to Mark Gembicki, president of WarRoom. To protect their corporate assets, 68 percent of the "targeted" companies implemented some form of intrusion-detection technology to safeguard their computer networks. In 1996, only 27 percent of the respondents had implemented intrusion-detection technology. Nearly 84 percent of the companies WarRoom surveyed expressed an interest in the technology, but only 31 percent expressed any level of confidence in these tools' performance, according to Gembicki.
