For years, traditional AV has been the first line of defense against known malware.†However, with the growth of cloud computing and mobile devices, the network perimeter has moved to the endpoint. As if this wasnt enough of a challenge, attackers are creating new techniques at unprecedented speeds.

To have truly effective security, companies need next-generation endpoint security (NGES) that consolidates prevention, detection, response, and IT operations into a single platform. The use of real-time analytics in the cloud provides a more proactive approach to endpoint security than traditional, reactive, signature-based antivirus technologies. But where do you start?

Join us for a live webinar with SANS analyst Barbara Filkins, who will share:

-What key features and requirements you should look for in next-generation endpoint security

-How to prepare to evaluate potential solutions and conduct the test drive

-How to compare solutions and use a scoring system to pick the one thats right for you

Youll leave this webinar with clear next steps on how to evaluate NGES. Save your seat today!
