The SANS 2016 survey attempts to define what an endpoint is and explore what types of endpoints are most targeted and why. Results are presented in a two-part webcast series.

Part 1 of this webcast, held on Wednesday, March 17, focuses on the evolving definition of endpoints and how that influences endpoint security today.

Today's webcast, Part 2 of the series, focuses on how endpoint security stacks up as a next generation of protection. Attend this webcast to learn:

  • How endpoint security keeps up (or doesn't) with the evolving definition of endpoints
  • What gaps still exist between respondents' ability to protect against and respond to endpoint threats
  • What they need from next-generation tools for better protection, response and compliance
  • What next-gen features respondents currently have access to
  • How satisfied organizations are with the technologies available to them

In addition, webcast speakers will share advice for IT managers. Register for both parts of the webcast today to be among the first to receive the survey results whitepaper written by Ray Davidson.
