  • Today’s security event monitoring and correlation tools are under enormous pressure. Security Analysts are inundated with data, but rather than being given insight, it is more difficult than ever to sort through and locate the real events that need attention. The next generation of security tools purports to process much larger and a greater variety of data sets, run deep-dive analytics in real-time, and rely more on intelligence than attack signatures. But what does this actually mean?

    How do I collect the right data?
    What kinds of new detections can I do?
    How do I get enough context to overcome false positives?
    How do I automate more of my security intelligence, or the intelligence of others?
    What should I look for in a solution?
    How is this different from my SIEM, IDS/IDS, and Advance Malware Detection products?

    These, and other questions, will be addressed to shed light on what has quickly become a market space of tremendous promise, but currently shrouded in confusion.

  • Are attacks on your network and users still occurring, despite continuing efforts to stay on top of security? What impact would malware have on your business if it was able to gain internal access and steal sensitive information?

    Without solutions that can disrupt the chain of events that occur during an advanced attack, many businesses are still being infiltrated and losing data every day. This webinar will cover the best practices in disrupting attacks with content security solutions - connected to optimize protection.
    Join this webinar as:
    •You will learn the tactics used by attackers today to infiltrate businesses
    •You will hear about the leading technologies available to disrupt advanced attacks
    •You will walk away with the knowledge to assess your own environment, and optimize your security
    Businesses today face more advanced attacks than we’ve ever seen in the past – and defending against them takes a connected approach which can disrupt the multiple points of infiltration and exfiltration used in the process of a breach. With most attacks seen in the wild using phishing emails to reach their target, a web link or malicious file to deliver a payload, and an outbound stream of communication to exfiltrate data – implementing a Secure Email Gateway, Secure Web Gateway, and Data Loss Prevention technology together will provide a barrier difficult for even the most advanced attacks to overcome.

    Don’t miss this webinar if you have a stake in the security of your most valuable information, or are directly responsible for the implementation of security solutions to protect it. Register now for this 30 minute webinar.
