Facebook is security risk to companies, says Sophos

As we have spoken about previously many firms are keen to reap the benefits which social networking websites can offer, however Sophos are suggesting that one particular social networking website is in fact a security risk.

A report published by Sophos suggests that Facebook can be a risk to businesses which use them for publicity, however if companies have the correct solutions and tools in place they should be protected against rising threats.

SonicWALL are a secure network infrastructure company and are attempting to directly address the security issues associated with social networking, they are also experts in email security and secure remote access solutions.

It is thought that lately SonicWALL have been holding fast-track events for its users, at these events they have been informing their end-users of the security risks associated with social networking.

No doubt there will be plenty of hackers out there aiming to exploit the new popularity of Twitter and Facebook etc, therefore these SonicWALL events could prove to be very beneficial.
