In this evolving threat environment, SOC teams are challenged with more alerts and investigations than they can address. They look for tools that can streamline their activity and focus their efforts on the critical threats that are most able to penetrate and pervade their organizations. 

In this session, SANS analyst Jake Williams and Endpoint Product Management Director Adam Licata discuss the four essentials of an effective endpoint solution and how prevention and detection tools join together to power charge your SOC.

You will learn details about:

  •    One of the most powerful attack surface reduction tools and why it can be so useful in streamlining the SOC workload
  •    New detection and response techniques and tools that can help reduce alert overload and improve SOC performance

Join us for this webinar on July 8, 1pm EST.
