Todays threat landscape and motivation by adversaries have resulted in more sophisticated and automated attacks. Nearly every attack relies on compromising an endpoint. Although most organizations have deployed endpoint protection, infections are still commona different approach is needed.

To be effective, endpoint protection needs to evolve to a prevention-first approach that protects endpoints at each critical stage of the attack lifecycle.

From this webinar, youll learn why endpoint protection should:


  •  Provide accurate protection against known and unknown threats
  •  Protect against exploits and fileless attacks based on technique rather than signatures
  •  And be simple to deploy and manage, and carry a lightweight agent for resource sensitive environments
