Traditional endpoint detection capabilities are usually limited to signatures provided by their antivirus vendor that remain only effective against opportunistic threats that find value in scale of access and deploy their malware widely. For the advanced attacker- who's objective is to steal large quantities of company data-their goal is to remain below the noise threshold to maximize the successfulness of the attack by avoiding the development of a signature. To combat this, you need emerging endpoint threat detection, response and prevention tools that will enable you to protect your enterprise from advanced attacks beyond the moment of compromise. Join Harry Sverdlove, chief technology officer for Bit9 + Carbon Black, to learn:

  • How every enterprise is a target
  • Why traditional endpoint security solutions cannot protect your environment from advanced threats
  • How emerging endpoint threat detection, response, and prevention solutions stand apart from traditional ones
  • What capabilities you need to protect your enterprise
