Free the User | Contain the Threat

  • PJ Bihuniak, Director of Sales, Invincea
  • Tuesday, August 6th, 12:30pm - 1:15pm

Ahhhh...the user. What can we say about the user...the primary target of attack, the unwitting accomplice to breach, the weakest link in our security strategies. Can anything be done to protect the network from the user and the user from himself?

  • Can you have your cake and eat it too?
  • Can you find a way to meet the demands of the business while at the same time the need to secure it?
  • Can you stop advanced targeted attacks dead in their tracks without changing employee work flows?
  • Can you change security from a group that ‚gets in the way‚ to the one that ‚ignites productivity‚?
  • Can you solve the user problem without restricting the user?

With Invincea, Yes you can!!

Find out how you can Free the User but at the same time Contain the Threat‚¶

Join us for an informative lunch and learn session where we will discuss:

  • How the user has become the primary target of attack with real-world case studies on spear-phishing, watering hole attacks and drive by downloads.
  • How Invincea‚s unique, non-signature based secure virtual container technology protects your network against user-targeted attacks and user-initiated compromise.
  • How you can finally deliver unfettered access to the Internet for your users without exposing the network to breach.
  • Why Dell recently selected Invincea as its only, direct from factory anti-malware partner ‚ touching 20m+ machines, and how this relationship can benefit you.
  • How Invincea clients are reducing costs, increasing employee productivity and avoiding the damage of breach.
