Modern attacks such as ransomware and advanced phishing that are becoming more prevalent each year. "Next-generation" attacks require next-generation antivirus (NGAV), which can stop more attacks, see more threats and close more security gaps than traditional AV. NGAV solutions that are purpose-built to utilize cloud-based analytics enable an even more dynamic, proactive approach to endpoint security.

In this webcast, SANS will discuss how cloud-based analytics can assist organizations in managing the security of their endpoints and how cloud-based analytics function with NGAV to improve protection and simplify operations. Attendees will learn how to:

  • Evaluate products against current and future trends
  • Compare NGAV solutions to select the best product
  • Test drive the chosen product to understand its use in production
