From Guessing To Knowing—How Cloud Endpoint Security Keeps You Ahead of Threats
You’ve heard about how today’s online threats have become too sophisticated for “traditional” threat detection. These new malware attacks are far too frequent, benign-looking until activated, and designed to bypass traditional signatures and the guesswork of heuristics.
So, by the time the threat is identified and your security technology is updated, it’s too late—the damage has been done. You are also up against transient Web-based threats that appear for only hours or days. Blacklisting becomes obsolete the moment it is deployed. And relying on whitelisting can be too restrictive. So what are your options?
Cloud-based prevention collectively leverages the intelligence seen from each individual endpoint; examines the actions of individual files, IP or URLs; assesses the risks; and then takes action. And cloud-based intelligence means you’re not relying on the current threat protection on other endpoints. Prevention is now always up-to-date and all users are instantly protected as soon as new threats appear. This collective prevention minimizes IT workload by eliminating the need to worry about definition updates, or whether your remote workers’ protection is up-to-date.
Cloud-based Webroot threat prevention technologies—that power our award-winning endpoint security products—are changing the game back in favor of the ‘good guys.’ Attend this session and find out more about what’s behind the first true innovation for endpoint protection in 20 years.

According to the latest annual Webroot Threat Brief, 97% of malware is unique to a specific endpoint, rendering static, signature-database security virtually useless. In fact, many attacks are staged, delivered, and terminated within a matter of hours, or even minutes, having harvested user credentials and other sensitive information. With the rising popularity of polymorphism and other trends, it is more crucial than ever that organizations strengthen their security postures with next-generation endpoint protection and real-time, highly accurate threat intelligence. Join this webinar for an in-depth discussion of the most recent quarter’s malware stats and trends, and how businesses can leverage this data to keep themselves, their users, and their customers safe from advanced attacks.
Year over year, newer and more inventive social-engineering techniques, such as watering hole attacks and spear phishing, are combined with malware attacks to trick users into handing over their personal information. Traditional security solutions are unable to keep up with these new threats and provide effective solutions. By using big data analytics and security intelligence, a Security-as-a-Service platform provides real-time protection to millions of end users daily. This will define the next generation of cloud-based threat identification and advanced persistent threat prevention by leveraging collective cloud-hosted intelligence to offer up-to-the-minute protection—both on the web and across all device platforms.
Attendees will leave this presentation with:
• An overview of the common threats and methods used to perform attacks.
• A summary of the impact such threats bring to both users and businesses.
• A better understanding of the challenges and benefits of deploying a cloud-based security solution.

Today's advanced malware is increasingly difficult to remove and often even harder to detect in the first place. In this presentation, we examine the modern threat landscape and discuss the shortcomings of traditional antivirus; as well as how organizations can stay ahead of the malware curve. Malware authors aren't too concerned about what your traditional AV is capable of blocking since they've formed reliable tactics to circumvent that protection. Either through social engineering or advanced evasive tactics, traditional antivirus technology is fighting an uphill battle to defend against it. Learn about highlights and revelations from Blackhat 2015; specifically about the 1.4 million Chrysler vehicle hack, how windows software update services can be hacked, the future of biometrics, and the progress encrypting ransomware. We also will talk about updates on law enforcement's attempts to catch cybercriminals. We will also discuss the startling trends we've seen from phishing attacks and mobile malware and what it means for an end user.

You only have two lines of defense when it comes to blocking threats. Beyond relying on your security solution for protection the only safeguard is you and your decisions. Malware authors aren't too concerned about what your AV is capable of blocking since they've formed reliable tactics to circumvent that protection. Their focus now is social engineering. You'd be surprised what the average user, and even the experienced user might fall for when it's presented in a professional fashion. We'll talk about tactics involved with phishing attachments, Fake AVs, PUAs, Cold Calls, and Encrypting Ransomware. This Webinar will go into detail on the different types of social engineering used in each of these threats to turn you into a reliable clicker.
With the exponential growth and sophistication of malware today, the security industry can no longer afford to ‘bury its head in the sand’. The bottom line is that traditional endpoint security protection has now become ineffective due to the sheer volume, quality, and complexity of malware. New threats have stretched the capabilities of "fat client" security architectures to the limit, making it impractical to keep endpoints updated with signatures for all the new viruses.

Enterprises, both large and small, all have vulnerability management solutions. However, security teams are overwhelmed by the mountain of vulnerabilities uncovered by these solutions. Once they determine which endpoints, systems and applications are vulnerable to an attack, they do not know which steps to take next and in what order. As a result, they spend countless hours manually determining who owns the vulnerable asset, the value of that asset, if it was compromised and if there is an active threat to that asset.
Join us for a live webinar on Wednesday, August 31, 2016 at 10am PT as Humphrey Christian, Vice President, Product Management, Bay Dynamics, discusses why organizations and business stakeholders, need an asset-centric approach to provide a fully integrated view of threats, vulnerabilities, asset value and business context. He will also give a live demonstration of the Bay Dynamics Risk Fabric cyber risk platform and provide examples of how our customers have used it to build asset-centric risk management programs that allow security teams, line-of-business leaders, C-level executives and boards of directors to determine which threats and associated vulnerabilities could lead to a compromise of their most valued assets and what steps need to be taken in order to reduce that risk.
Register for the live webinar to learn more about:
• Understanding your Assets at Risk by protecting your high value assets that can be exploited by threats and vulnerabilities
• Why it is important to take an asset-centric approach to effectively manage cyber risk
• How Risk Fabric cyber risk analytics platform servers as a centerpiece for this asset-centric approach through a live demonstration

If you’re an IT professional, you probably know at least the basics of ransomware. Instead of using malware or an exploit to exfiltrate PII from an enterprise, bad actors instead find valuable data and encrypt it. Unless you happen to have an NSA-caliber data center at your disposal to break the encryption, you must pay your attacker in cold, hard bitcoins—or else wave goodbye to your PII.
Those assumptions aren’t wrong, but they also don’t tell the whole picture. Hear from Jeremiah Grossman, SentinelOne’s Chief of Security Strategy and a 20-year cybersecurity veteran, in this on-demand webinar that will explore the foundations of ransomware, and why you truly need to worry.
