Bit9 + Carbon Black and Cyphort to Participate in Free Gartner Webinar: "Making Sense of the APT Defense Marketplace"

WALTHAM, Mass., Aug. 11, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bit9® + Carbon Black®, the leader in endpoint threat prevention, detection and response, is participating in the free webinar "Making Sense of the APT Defense Marketplace" on Tuesday, August 18, 2015, at 1:00 p.m. EDT. The webinar features Gartner Research Vice President Lawrence Orans and is sponsored by Bit9 + Carbon Black and Cyphort, a "Bit9 + Carbon Black Connect" Alliance Partner.

News coverage on advanced attacks have painted a clear picture of the necessity to be hyper vigilant and take actions to protect your enterprise. Yet the vast numbers of vendors, security jargon and ever-changing landscape blurs the pathways to find the appropriate solution.

To bring back a sense of direction, Gartner Research Vice President Lawrence Orans will discuss his "Five Styles of Advanced Threats Defense" framework. With this framework you will be better able to evaluate solutions, recognize the pros and cons of each style, and understand how to combine different technologies to architect your own APT defense. He will be joined by Bit9 + Carbon Black's Brian Hazzard, Vice President of Technology Alliance and Cyphort's Anthony James, Vice President of Products and Marketing for a detailed discussion on how you can combine different technologies to architect your own advanced defense.

Cyphort's network-based advanced threats defense solution empowers you to target threats that target you. Bit9 + Carbon Black arms your endpoints against advanced threats. Jointly, Cyphort and Bit9 + Carbon Black provide comprehensive layered security against advanced threats, from the network to endpoints.
