AV, EDR, NGAV…What’s Next in Endpoint Protection?
Antivirus has been around since the 1980s. How did it evolve in the past decade? What about hot, machine learning powered Next Generation Antivirus products promoted by well-funded startups? Or should we assume compromise and focus on the Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) instead? What are the pros and cons of these approaches and where is endpoint security going next?
This interactive presentation will discuss the reasons behind the vulnerable state of endpoint security and include a demo of the infamous Rubber Ducky that remains practically unstoppable by today’s endpoint protection products.
You will leave this presentation with the following knowledge:
- Understand the current state of endpoint security and latest attacks
- Explore available endpoint protection tools, including Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR)
- Learn about benefits and shortcomings of modern endpoint protection tools and approaches
- See an advanced file-less attack in action
- Learn the latest best practices and approaches that promise to reduce threat surface and minimize breaches

2019 Trends in Data-Centric Security and Privacy
For years, companies have tried to protect their data by locking down networks, securing applications, and restricting devices. Each of these methods expose security gaps, slow down access to critical information, and add complexity that impedes productivity. During this session, we will review a 2019 Virtru study conducted by Forrester that shows why organizations are adopting a data-centric-approach to data protection and share examples of how this approach facilitates the use of new cloud technologies, secure information sharing, and compliance with evolving regulations.
As Director of Solutions Engineering at Virtru, Brett brings more than 20 years of experience working with enterprise customers in information security, data management, and data privacy. Brett holds a BS in Computer Science from Kansas State University and is a perpetual student of technology.
