  • Intuitive Endpoint Security: A SANS Review of Morphisec by Matt Bromiley - August 18, 2020 

    Endpoint security can be a tricky topic for organizations. In many cases, security teams utilize endpoint security products that are bulky and cumbersome, barely effective and only make their jobs more difficult. Furthermore, many security products rely so heavily on detecting an incident after the fact that they hardly seem effective in preventing cyber incidents. This leaves the security team constantly chasing alerts through the network, rather than implementing preventative techniques. In this paper SANS instructor Matt Bromiley reviews the Morphisec platform, which reverses much of this approach. Morphisec is geared toward the prevention of malicious activity through the careful morphing of process memory.
