Bit9 + Carbon Black Free Webinar: "Gaining Defense-in-Depth on the Endpoint--Is Antivirus Enough?"

WALTHAM, Mass., Nov. 21, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bit9® + Carbon Black®, the leader in endpoint threat prevention, detection and response, is sponsoring the free webinar "Gaining Defense-in-Depth on the Endpoint—Is Antivirus Enough?" on Friday, December 5, 2014, at 2:00 p.m. EST.

Advanced threats, such as zero-day and targeted attacks, attempt to find and steal sensitive information on endpoints and servers. Antivirus and anti-malware solutions provide one level of defense, but is their signature-based approach enough to detect and prevent threats?

In this webinar, join security experts Brian Hazzard, of Bit9 + Carbon Black, and Dr. Engin Kirda, of Lastline, and moderator Nick Cavalancia, an industry veteran, as they answer such questions as:

  • How real is the threat of advanced attacks on your endpoints?
  • How can a layered defense-in-depth strategy help address the problem?
  • What kinds of technologies should be used? When?
  • Where does antivirus fit in the endpoint security landscape?

The panel will take questions from the audience to help you determine the most effective way to reduce your endpoint attack surface.
