Today's cyber attacks seem to be changing at breakneck speed. Attackers are ever-increasing their arsenals, quickly pivoting through environments and deploying devastating malware within a matter of minutes or hours. School districts, hospitals, and critical infrastructure pipelines are held hostage for tens of millions of dollars. One thing is clear: We must constantly find ways to shift the advantage back to the defenders.

In this product review, we looked at a platform aimed to do exactly that: Virsec Security Platform. Virsec navigates analysts away from reactive stances, instead focusing on application awareness and prevention. Virsec thrives on what applications are supposed to do, and preventing the opposite. Abnormal application activity is a constant hallmark of threat actors, and preventative measures can put a significant dent in attacker success rates.

In this live webcast, we will look at Virsec's:

  • Application-aware approach to security, with less tuning and laborious discovery for security teams,
  • Granular application security, which can defeat weaknesses in limited-telemetry defenses,
  • Support for a wide range of applications and technologies, including on-prem, virtual, cloud, and container,
  • Informative incident detection logging and reporting capabilities, allowing for quick handling of incidents within the environment.
