Today’s data-driven, hybrid environments has become an increasing target for hackers as the traditional firewall on the perimeter and EDR are no longer enough. While security leaders are being asked to do more with less, they are also challenged that virtualization and cloud initiatives have caused impairment with their visibility and an inability to maintain strong policy enforcement controls. Pair this with the high costs of legacy and traditional network segmentation when firewalls are expensive, deployment is lengthy, and ongoing maintenance heavily relies on professional services for continuous, manual rule updates. Join us for an engaging discussion on how microsegmentation can be deployed with minimal maintenance to generate an exponential cost savings. We will also explore how this approach can apply when MFA is deployed on every port, protocol, and application and be regarded as a key defense mechanism against stealthy attacks and data breaches.

As threats grow more sophisticated and span across a greater variety of attack vectors, ensuring consistent detection across your environment has never been more critical. In today’s hybrid, multi-vendor, multi-vector landscape, complexity is the biggest challenge. Security teams must protect an ever-expanding ecosystem, running operations across dozens of tools with inconsistent integration. IoT and hybrid work have led to an expanded attack surface. Phishing, malware, and ransomware are doubling and even tripling year over year. At the same time, businesses are more hyper-connected than ever before. A security breach to one company can impact a company’s suppliers, partners, customers and even whole sectors of the economy.

Join us for an engaging discussion on how the new normal calls for cyber security resilience — the ability to protect the integrity of every aspect of the business to withstand unpredictable threats or changes and emerge stronger. Additionally, we will explore from an executive perspective how an XDR solution that is open, extensible and cloud-first, will benefit from unified detection and event correlation across your environment instead of adding additional layers of complexity.

Most organizations are now engaging in a Zero Trust journey as they prepare for more flexible, hybrid models of working. Protections around identity and devices are necessary and must cover both managed and unmanaged users, assets, resources and workstations. The lack of full visibility into these unagentable and unmanaged areas will prevent you from realizing the extent of your attack surface, leaving you unable to implement effective Zero Trust policies. Join our conversation where we will discuss how to take your Zero Trust roadmap from a conceptual model to a comprehensive framework that protects data; enables the principles of network isolation, segmentation and security; automates and orchestrates controls and processes; and more.

Security and observability teams need centralized visibility into event data to identify and automate responses to vulnerabilities and deliver a flawless end-user experience. However, security and performance data often remain siloed in point solutions, compelling companies to duplicate and transfer data to traditional SIEM or log management solutions. Using these solutions as a data lake becomes cost-prohibitive since they were developed in the pre-cloud era and fail to leverage the latest innovations.

Join us as we discuss how enterprises can explore modern data lake solutions to capture and unify all data leading to better outcomes while significantly reducing costs when your data volume may be exceeding the pace of your budget.

As the number, type, and sophistication of threats evolve, organizations require more intelligence and insight than traditional endpoint security provides. More threat actors are shifting their aim to weaknesses created by user behavior, poor cybersecurity hygiene, and shadow IT. The dramatic increase in the types of endpoint devices—including smartphones, tablets, wearable devices, and more—has overpowered first-generation endpoint security. The increasing number of potentially vulnerable endpoints can also exhaust security team resources that are relying on traditional cybersecurity defenses. Depending on separate software processes to handle the security and security management of endpoints can result in potential disconnects. And maintaining and updating blacklists of malicious codes requires more and more resources. And these legacy products still leave organizations susceptible to zero-day exploits, data theft threatening to slip through among too many false positives.

Join us for an engaging discussion on how next-generation, automated technologies can examine every process on every device to counter potential attacks have become necessary to better lock down endpoint security while investigating every phase of an attack campaign. We will also explore how behavioral analysis requires a multi-layered defense inclusive of AI and machine learning to protect against fileless and other advanced attacks.

As threats grow more sophisticated and span across a greater variety of attack vectors, ensuring consistent detection across your environment has never been more critical. In today’s hybrid, multi-vendor, multi-vector landscape, complexity is the biggest challenge. Security teams must protect an ever-expanding ecosystem, running operations across dozens of tools with inconsistent integration. IoT and hybrid work have led to an expanded attack surface. Phishing, malware, and ransomware are doubling and even tripling year over year. At the same time, businesses are more hyper-connected than ever before. A security breach to one company can impact a company’s suppliers, partners, customers and even whole sectors of the economy.

Join us for an engaging discussion on how the new normal calls for cyber security resilience — the ability to protect the integrity of every aspect of the business to withstand unpredictable threats or changes and emerge stronger. Additionally, we will explore from an executive perspective how an XDR solution that is open, extensible and cloud-first, will benefit from unified detection and event correlation across your environment instead of adding additional layers of complexity.

Multi-cloud networks, new AI applications, and unstructured data systems are often added without the security team’s knowledge, expanding the attack surface without adherence to security policies. While cybersecurity tools have matured and are more capable of detecting threats and vulnerabilities, improving data protection with data discovery and classification is an ever more important priority. Complicating the situation further, regulations such as PCI DSS, HIPAA, GDPR, and U.S. state laws such as the CCPA mandate the protection of sensitive and personal information. At the end of the day, you can’t protect what you don’t know you have. It is time to capture the elusive risk of sensitive dark data.

And phishers have taken notice where they can now attack one of the companies in your supply chain with the ultimate intent of getting past your own company’s protections. Join us for an insightful discussion as we delve into the range of security gaps and most active cyber threats that are associated with collaboration tools ---ranging from cryptomining malware, phishing, trojans, and ransomware. We will deep dive on how these simple endpoint attacks are evolving into complex, multi-stage operations giving an easy foothold into company networks. We will also explore how security teams can thwart massive data leaks and expensive ransomware payouts as well as take a look at the vast, new, complicated threat landscape and how we’re seeing phishing used in cyberwarfare.

Modern enterprises are accelerating their digital transformation initiatives to gain agility and maintain a competitive edge. No matter how many times you’ve heard it, the cliché “you can’t secure what you can’t see" still remains true. As organizations move to increasingly complex hybrid and multi-cloud infrastructures, the need to gain and maintain visibility into all data-in-motion – including East-West, encrypted and container traffic – becomes more critical. Join us for an engaging discussion on how the deep observability enables organizations to realize the full transformational promise of the cloud and set the stage for delivering significant value. With the uncertainty of today’s economy, we will also explore how to minimize the expenses that are associated with managing hybrid and multi-cloud IT infrastructures by identifying and eliminating security and performance blind spots, breaking down silos, and containing runaway complexity.

SaaS applications have become deeply embedded in every business function within forward thinking organizations, from sales and marketing to R&D. They are designed to facilitate business productivity and efficiency and empower business users to adopt them at scale without involving IT. The downside is that security teams are left without visibility into the often-indiscriminate adoption of cloud services, risky SaaS-to-SaaS integrations, ungoverned user identities and privileges, SaaS misconfigurations, and the external over-sharing of data. Join us for an engaging discussion as we explore how to mitigate these SaaS risks and share best practices on how security teams can engage with business users on proper SaaS application security hygiene without impeding business productivity or the velocity of SaaS adoption.

In today’s digital world, applications have become mission-critical for organizations looking to drive rapid growth and to stay connected with customers. As technology evolves, the attack surface becomes more sophisticated offering threat actors a range of vectors to target and compromise. Combined with stagnating budgets, fluctuating economic trends and limited team sizes, these challenges cause security leaders to feel the pressure to consider the increased threat landscape to include sensitive data that's exposed through APIs.

Join this insightful discussion to participate in a conversation about how security leaders can enable and empower their teams to safeguard sensitive data using modern security platforms that protect your applications, continuously scan for APIs that expose sensitive data and shield them, and provide automation tools that let you achieve increasingly complex tasks without growing your team. We will also explore how a comprehensive Web Application and API Protection (WAAP) stack that secures from edge to database is essential to reducing the risks created by third-party code.

Just like any business or industry, cybercriminals are continually on the lookout for ways to innovate and remain relevant as trends and market dynamics evolve. The shift to remote and hybrid work and acceleration of cloud adoption has transformed the daily routines for most workers, with most of it revolving around the browser. It only makes sense from an attacker’s perspective to cast a line where the majority of fish are swimming because they can evade detection from traditional security tools. It then comes as no surprise that Highly Evasive Adaptive Threats (HEAT) represent an important evolution in attacker techniques to exploit key gaps in traditional security defenses. Join us for a forward-thinking discussion on how organizations can focus on three key tenets to limit their susceptibility to these types of attacks: shifting from a detection to a proactive mindset, stopping threats before they hit the endpoint, and incorporating advanced anti-phishing and isolation capabilities. We will also explore how HEAT attacks evade existing security defenses where hackers exploit the weaknesses of the existing security stack, are building sophisticated delivery mechanisms to evade detection as well as how to prevent them.
