HP report: Security officers should focus on more than network perimeter

But they are also re-defining the network perimeter, making it harder to defend. Yet simply defending the IP addresses on your network misses the fastest-growing source of cyber attacks, according to the latest biannual report from Hewlett Packard.
That report shows that attacks against web applications, including e-government apps, rose 50 percent in the first half of 2011 compared to the same period last year.
