The complexity of modern cloud, web application, and legacy environments along with mobile, IoT, and web APIs have created a vast attack surface that simply can't be managed by current rules-based approaches and WAF technologies. The results? Costly false positives, overworked security teams, and immense analysis and maintenance burdens. 

Join John Pescatore and Bret Settle as they discuss the current challenges inherent in protecting your application environment, and how advancements in behavioral risk profiling and proven approaches to threat analysis can deliver precise threat intelligence and neutralization capabilities while freeing up security teams from time-consuming analysis and reporting.
