Organizations now recognize that they need NGAV embedded with full endpoint protection to detect and prevent malware and malware-less attacks and to provide detailed remediation support and workflow integration. However, with so many vendors claiming to integrate these functions, how can you be sure you're getting what you pay for?

The key question you need answered before beginning the buying process is: What are your requirements for this type of transitional technology? Your second question should be: How do you communicate those requirements to prospective vendors?

In this webcast, SANS Analyst Program Research Director Barbara Filkins will present a SANS-developed process for creating an RFP. We'll also discuss the basic formula for testing products against that RFP. 

Those who attend this webcast will have early access to the RFP form and test guide, which will be published at the time of this webcast.
