A New Way to Look at IT Security with Endpoint Modeling

Endpoint compromise has been a consistent theme in nearly every modern security breach. This discussion makes the case for a new approach to IT security yielding compelling critical defense measures and visibility into endpoints and the network. With great accuracy, endpoint modeling discovers and tracks the role of each device in a way that emits actionable security intelligence when roles change in notable ways. Join us as we introduce endpoint modeling, discuss why this is feasible and necessary for enterprises today, and how this solution is being used successfully in organizations large and small, in traditional networks and cloud environments including AWS VPCs, Azure and others.

Network Access Control (NAC) 101

Friend or Foe?

Mobile devices, cloud technology, IoT and virtual work alternatives have changed how organizations operate. With over 21 billion new devices accessing networks by 2020 according to Gartner, how can organizations prepare today for the increase in devices without undermining the security posture?


A strong perimeter defense no longer offers complete protection. Organizations need to address the entire security lifecycle to adequately protect digital assets and intellectual property, even as network access grows. This presentation will address the evolving security threat landscape, cover the three critical keys to network security – visibility, control and automated response, and provide tips and best practices to shrink your attack surface and secure your network now and for the future.

Your Day Will Come:

 Preparing for the Inevitable Breach with Proactive Incident Response

We all know that successful attacks are happening faster than ever before and they are more difficult to detect. A recent reports indicate that 90% of attackers compromise their target in days or less. Yet it takes on average 206 days to discover the attack. Even after discovery, it can take weeks to effectively respond. As guardians of valuable information assets, how do you close that window of exposure? Despite even the most robust fortress of traditional, signature-based security tools, security breaches seem more inevitable than ever. 43% of incident response engagements were a result of malware being missed by prevention tools. While important, endpoint defenses alone won’t prevent motivated attackers using modern malware and zero-day attacks. Giving up isn’t an option. Preparation and swift response is key in today’s environment. So what are you to do?
