Modern Endpoint Protection – Automating Prevention, Detection, and Response
- LANGUAGE: English DATE: Thursday, December 06, 2018 TIME: 10:00am CET
“Antivirus is dead!” - we’ve heard talks like this for years. Some experts would point out that traditional signature-based products cannot detect zero-day attacks or sophisticated advanced threats. Others would even recommend getting rid of any 3rd party antimalware products because the one built into Windows is good enough. But can we really take these claims at face value?
If the last few years have taught us anything, it would be that the cyberthreat landscape is constantly evolving, changing quickly and unpredictably. Even the largest companies that have invested heavily in various security tools were completely unprepared for the ransomware outbreak last year. Cryptojacking, CEO fraud, fileless malware – cybercriminals never cease to “innovate”…
It seems therefore that for most companies the focus has already shifted from preventing a malware attack towards detecting malicious activities and trying to contain them as quickly as possible – after the introduction of GDPR and similar compliance regulations, an undetected breach can not just hinder your operations but ruin your business financially. But does it mean that you need to augment your existing antivirus with a brand new EDR solution? And how do you plan to keep up with the latest cyberthreat developments if not with a threat intelligence solution? Finally, who’s going to operate all these tools and how much do they expect to be paid?
Does it look like the idea of replacing your antimalware tool is a bit more complicated than you’ve anticipated? Then join us at this KuppingerCole webinar and learn everything about:
- Coming up with a sensible strategy for beefing up your endpoint protection
- What’s new in a next-generation antivirus and how does machine learning help catch unknown threats
- Real-time end monitoring and how it helps detect suspicious activities and prevent breaches before substantial harm is done
- Threat intelligence automation as the secret sauce for a solution that stops breaches before they occur
- Reducing complexity and operation costs with agent consolidation and cloud delivery
In the first part of the webinar, Alexei Balaganski, Lead Analyst at KuppingerCole, will talk about the latest cybersecurity challenges your company is facing and walk you through the key component of a comprehensive endpoint security architecture.
In the second part, Chris Meidinger, Sales Engineer DACH at CrowdStrike, will dive into the details of modern threat detection, prevention, and response technologies and demonstrate how they can work together seamlessly in a single intelligent and automated Security-as-a-Service platform.
CrowdStrike is the leader in cloud-delivered endpoint protection. Leveraging artificial intelligence (AI), the CrowdStrike Falcon platform offers instant visibility and protection across the enterprise and prevents attacks on endpoints on or off the network. CrowdStrike Falcon deploys in minutes to deliver actionable intelligence and real-time protection from Day One. It seamlessly unifies next-generation AV with best-in-class endpoint detection and response, backed by 24/7 managed hunting. Its cloud infrastructure and single-agent architecture take away complexity and add scalability, manageability, and speed.
The majority of security breaches and attacks can be traced back to stolen and compromised passwords. Mobile devices are often particularly vulnerable because many users tend to avoid long passwords and special characters.
Blockchain is still on everyone’s lips and the 2019 can be the year when large enterprises finally embrace the distributed ledger technology. KuppingerCole's inaugural blockchain-themed event will go beyond the hype and will present you real use cases and applications for your enterprise. Blockchain Enterprise Days (#BeDays19) will take place on September 18-19, 2019 in Frankfurt, Germany.
