Preventing Persistent Attacks With Linux Micro Virtualization

  • Speakers: John Pescatore, Tom Gillis

Online threats have evolved. In the early days hackers were just a nuisance. Today online breaches cost companies Billions of dollars, permanent damage to their reputation and even impact national security. Most of the recent high profile breaches in the news such as HBO and Equifax have one thing in common: persistence.

Join John Pescatore of Sans Institute and Tom Gillis, CEO at Bracket Computing for an interactive discussion about the reasons behind the meteoric rise in Linux malware attacks. You will also hear how micro virtualization for Linux servers stop persistent malware from carrying out malicious attacks once a host has been compromised.

During this webcast you will learn:

  • Why signature based solutions aren't enough
  • Remediation strategies for each of the stages of the attack chain after the compromise
  • How to stop in-memory privilege escalation, rootkits and file-level persistence
