Security Without Scanning for Today's Hybrid Datacenter

  • Webcast Aired Friday, 14 Feb 2014 1:00PM EST (14 Feb 2014 18:00 UTC)
  • Speakers: Dave Shackleford, Ben Andrew

Today's datacenter is a mixture of physical and virtual systems, but the tried-and-true methods of securing systems, such as scanning for signatures of hostile activity, may no longer be valid. Attackers have switched their targeting from random systems and are now taking aim at databases which hold a company's crown jewels, whether they are hoping to capture confidential information or merely embarrass the organization. Although security models are moving from searching for the forbidden to only permitting that which is specifically approved, many IT security efforts are still trapped in the habits of the past. This webcast will discuss how to recast your systems protection efforts to meet the challenges presented by modern, focused attacks.
