Staying Ahead of Hackers with NSS CAWS Advanced Exploit Testing

Presented by

Brendan Patterson, director of product management, and Rob Johnson, sales engineer

About this talk

Over 90% of all breaches are enabled by a few hundred commercial exploit kits that hackers share and sell in the black market. The typical IT environment may have thousands of unpatched vulnerabilities, but at any given time, only a small handful of vulnerabilities are being actively exploited. To stay ahead of these attacks, WatchGuard participates in NSS exploit testing using CAWS (Cyber Advanced Warning System) - a cloud hosted software service that actively monitors and harvests live cyber threats and attacks, and then tests them against environments protected by the most widely used security solutions in the industry. Join Brendan Patterson, director of product management at WatchGuard, and Rob Johnson, sales engineer at NSS Labs, for a behind the scenes look at the CAWS test system, and how it helps enable WatchGuard to stop hackers in their tracks.
