Traditional AV, while it will always be part of the infrastructure, no longer works. It cannot stop \next-generation" attacks, such as ransomware and advanced phishing. "Next-generation" attacks require next-generation antivirus (NGAV), which can stop more attacks, see more threats and close more security gaps than traditional AV. For example, next-gen AV should improve detection, prevent and block attacks, and reduce overhead and false positives through intelligence, behavior and pattern matching, rather than just relying on signatures.

In this webinar, you'll hear from Neil Boland, Chief Information Security officer at Major League Baseball, as well as Greg Notch, SVP, Information Technology & Security at National Hockey League, security pioneers who are upgrading to NGAV and want to share their experiences.

In addition, SANS will share the criteria they have developed to evaluate the many tools now flooding the market claiming to be next-generation tools. This webcast will dive into the technology behind NGAV and provide specific guidance on how to assess NGAV's efficacy and role in your environment. In this webcast attendees will learn:

  • Best practices from security executives at MLB and NHL
  • What distinguishes NGAV from traditional AV
  • The technology behind NGAV that works to stop modern threats
  • How to effectively evaluate products against current and future threat types
