Attackers continue to evolve their techniques, with increased targeting, evasion and sophistication. A common denominator of the most damaging breaches have been the attacker's ability to compromise user endpoints and from there cause immense business damage by compromising critical internal servers and stealing business and customer information. Many enterprise endpoint defense strategies continue to rely on outdated endpoint antiviral signature-based approaches, while others have tried "spending in depth" - adding multiple and uncoordinated endpoint security agents in the hopes of seeing security increase. Neither approach has been effective against advanced targeted attacks.

Enterprises need an endpoint security strategy that implements the relevant controls and that integrates with network security controls and analytics, as well.

Added protection doesn't need to add complexity and Critical Security Controls provides a proven basis for focusing on the most effective techniques for detecting and preventing real world attacks.

This webinar will provide an update on the both threat environment, the latest draft update to the Critical Security Controls and a demo of layered critical protection that stops malicious attacks.
