The number and types of threats facing most organizations online is growing at an astonishing rate. The cloud, Web application issues, client-side vulnerabilities, malicious sites that distribute malware - all of these are major headaches that enterprise security teams face today. In addition, data leakage from internal sources is a problem that we're still struggling with, trying to keep sensitive data inside where it belongs.
With the latest releases of McAfee's Web Protection and Identity and Access Management solutions, SANS had the opportunity to evaluate a diverse set of features that bring together identity management and user identification capabilities with deep Web security monitoring and application control for cloud-based services. Several use cases were defined, and in this webcast, we'll walk through capabilities and a variety of scenarios that can help identify data loss, application anomalies, malicious code execution and malware, and also tie user information and role-based protection strategies into the mix.
