  • Threat defenses: Before, during and after the point of click Recorded: Jul 8 2013 48 mins
    Produced by SC Magazine and Websense, this webcast explains how to protect against malware, advanced threats and data theft with continuous defenses before, during and after the point of click.

    This webcast outlines advanced threat stages and explains how protection in early stages can quickly block attacks, and how real-time, inline threat analysis protects against threats, data loss and data theft at the point of click. And learn how containment defenses are using sandboxing and traffic analysis to identify, profile and protect after the click. Combined, security administrators and teams are better armed to protect users, data and resources.

    Learn how threat defenses have evolved to include:

    - Global threat awareness and analysis to protect before the point of click.
    - Inline, real-time defenses during the point-of-click for protection against threats and data theft.
    - Sandboxing of malware and traffic analysis to identify and protect after the click.
    - Equal protection from both web and email attacks for office workers and remote workers.

  • Seven Stages of Advanced Threats & Data Theft Recorded: Sep 27 2012 52 mins
    Targeted attacks are now well beyond traditional URL+AV defenses, and forward facing defenses do not provide containment against data theft and cybercrime call-home communications. In addition, cloud apps, mobility and remote users are increasing SSL use that is often a blind spot for many defenses. Change is the only constant in the IT security world and being educated on threat stages, defenses, and effectiveness is paramount.
  • A Proactive Approach to Modern Malware using Forensics & Sandboxing Recorded: Sep 6 2012 48 mins
    CISOs around the world are telling analysts that the majority of today’s emerging threats are bypassing their anti-virus, firewalls, and intrusion prevention solutions. In response, analysts suggest that IT needs to assume a more proactive stance.

In this webinar, Websense will discuss ways to begin this shift today including:

    - Expanding ‘inbound’ defenses to include ‘outbound’ controls
    - Options for enhancing in-house IT security expertise
    - Leveraging research-grade forensic tools such as Websense ThreatScope™

    Real-world context will be provided as an actual malware sample undergoes forensic dissection and the Websense CyberSecurity Intelligence™ service is reviewed as a concrete example of the capabilities of today’s threat intelligence marketplace.
