WALTHAM, Mass., Feb. 2, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bit9® + Carbon Black®, the leader in endpoint threat prevention, detection and response, is sponsoring the free webinar "Solving Windows 2003 End of Life Security Risks: Migration Strategies and Compensating Controls for Beyond July 14, 2015" on Tuesday, February 10, 2015, at 12:00 p.m. EST.
Security patches for Windows 2003 end less than six months from now. This is not a trivial matter. Threat actors already have known exploits they are saving up to unleash after July 14.
Most organizations still have Windows 2003 systems running—many with critical applications. But even if you are fortunate enough to not have any security critical apps or resources on Windows 2003 servers, you still have a compliance gap and major security risk to deal with. That's because threat actors are happy to start out with compromising any system on your network—even if it has nothing to do with what they are after. From there they follow a lateral kill chain until they reach their intended goal.
In this webinar we'll show you an array of resources and tools to help security professionals:
- Assess your exposure to Windows 2003 EOL risks
- Discover Windows 2003 systems
- Catalog applications and resources on Windows 2003 that need to be moved
- Assess compatibility issues, and more
But migration off Windows 2003 by July 14 isn't possible for organization and every system, for a variety of reasons. So security teams need an alternative; they need a compensating control technology. The good news is that compensating control exists in the form of application control.
Chris Strand, senior director for compliance for Bit9 + Carbon Black will demonstrate how the Bit9 Security Platform prevents untrusted code from running and protects Windows 2003 from sophisticated attacks.
