WALTHAM, Mass., May 19, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bit9, the leader in advanced threat protection for endpoints and servers which recently merged with Carbon Black, is sponsoring the free webinar "Hardening Windows XP Against Memory Attacks: Getting the Most from Data Execution Protection" on Thursday, May 22, 2014, at 12:00 p.m. EDT.
There's a bigger security problem for many organizations than just the recent end of security patches for Windows XP. Memory-based attacks are the bread and butter of today's threat actors. Over the years, Microsoft has responded with increasingly sophisticated levels of memory protection. But they have only delivered those enhancements for then-current versions of Windows. And XP isn't just any version of Windows; it's the version most vulnerable to memory attacks.
Register for this webinar to gain a new, research-based approach to endpoint security, including memory protection technologies in XP such as Data Execution Protection (DEP) and why they are underutilized in most environments. You'll learn how to determine if you could be taking greater advantage of DEP, how to control DEP via group policy, and all possible ways to harden XP and Internet Explorer against memory attacks and malware.

About Bit9 + Carbon Black
Bit9 and Carbon Black have joined together to offer the industry's most complete solution for advanced threat protection for endpoints and servers. The merged company helps organizations protect themselves from advanced threats in two critical ways: by reducing their attack surface through new signature-less forms of prevention, and rapidly detecting and responding to threats. We do this by leveraging the powerful combination of Carbon Black's lightweight endpoint sensor, which can be rapidly deployed with no configuration to deliver "incident response in seconds," and Bit9's industry-leading prevention technologies to continuously monitor and record all activity on endpoints and servers and stop cyber threats that evade traditional security defenses. Our lightweight real-time sensor and recorder, cloud-based services, and real-time enforcement engine give organizations immediate visibility into everything running on their endpoints and servers; real-time signature-less detection of and protection against advanced threats; a recorded history of all endpoint and server activity to rapidly respond to alerts and incidents; and real-time integration with network security devices such as Check Point, FireEye and Palo Alto Networks. 1,000 organizations worldwide—from 25 Fortune 100 companies to small businesses—use Bit9 and Carbon Black to increase security, reduce operational costs and improve compliance.
