Learn why traditional datacenter security strategies are failing against modern threats with SANS and Carbon Black

Traditional data center security strategies are no longer effective against the advanced threats of today. As applications become increasingly mobile and complex, security methods aligned to infrastructure are too costly and ineffective for organizations to rely on. Identifying unknown and advanced threats requires a deep understanding of both intended application behavior and threat behavior, something that traditional endpoint security products dont possess.

  • Current Trends and Challenges: Find out what the most recent trends and challenges are facing security in the virtualized data center today
