GigaOm Webinar: Countering targeted attacks with active defense strategies


Countering targeted attacks with active defense strategies

Firewalls block basic attacks on your network, antivirus scanners filter known offenders, and no enterprise should operate without them. Still, focused attackers and zero-day exploits make short work of entrenched perimeter defenses, and every business should expect to be breached. To cope with these attacks, IT should build an additional layer of active analysis and mitigation.

This Webinar will examine the ways in which IT can become more proactive in threat identification, evaluate a threat’s origin and intent, and respond to that threat in real-time or close to real-time.
