The critical nature of endpoint security has hit hard for enterprise security teams, who demand innovative ways to counter threats like WannaCry, and other attacks built to evade defenses that aren't equipped to defend.

Advanced attacks are impacting endpoints at an alarming rate. Unprotected files, unsuspecting or careless users, and unpatched systems all contribute to an increased risk across a rapidly advancing threat landscape. Security teams need as much breadth as possible to protect the enterprise. Detection, response and the inoculation of endpoint threats, especially unknown threats, is critical in the holistic fight to counter today's attacks. This webinar will provide a new look at how companies can start to implement not just a 24X7X365 service from an MSSP, but advanced endpoint technology to continuously monitor for attacks that penetrate existing security layers.

Attendees will learn:

  • The latest SANS research on key threats impacting the enterprise across endpoint environments.
  • Best practices in endpoint security innovation from CounterTack
  • The impact and long-term value for organizations who leverage next-generation capabilities to counter endpoint threats at-scale.
  • What separates truly differentiated detection and response solutions in terms of approach, technology and value-added service to act as a force multiplier against advanced threats.
