View archived webinar

The IT security industry has spent the last year wrestling with the growing threat of ransomware, in which a cyberattacker encrypts a victim enterprise’s data and then demands payment to decrypt it. But exactly how does ransomware infect your systems in the first place? Is all ransomware the same? How does it encrypt your data, and why is that encryption so hard to crack? Most importantly, what can you do to stop it – or at least prevent it from affecting your most sensitive information?

In this eye-opening webinar, top experts offer insight on how ransomware is created, how it is distributed, how it works, and how to limit its impact on your organization.

Identifying exposures and vulnerabilities in UC/RTC Environments
Date: Sep 28, 2017

View archived webinar

Businesses continue to evolve and rely more heavily on Unified Communications (UC) and Real Time Communications (RTC) based applications to run their normal day to day operations. However, the underlying networks, protocols and technologies that deliver UC and RTC have remained unchanged.   And because we live in an IP world--with VoIP and SIP common to all types of networks, reliance on traditional internet and data networking tools for real-time communications exposes UC networks to the same types of cyberattacks that affect all data networks. More importantly, it exposes the network to the inherent vulnerabilities of SIP communications that the traditional tool sets don’t address.  

This webinar will examine the security implications of using VoIP and SIP, how to best protect real-time communications traffic with tools you already have as well as with new tools, and how to orchestrate protections to prevent UC security from becoming just another isolated security silo.

Stop the Stopgaps: How to Look for New Security Technologies
Date: Jul 19, 2017

View archived webinar

Businesses have been trusting security vendors to protect their endpoints for years, but those vendors can’t keep up with the speed of the evolving threat landscape. They are failing in their promise to protect their customers, and these failures have opened the door for Next-Generation Anti-Virus solutions. Desperate for relief, businesses are adding, or even replacing, their traditional AV with these NGAV solutions. And while the NGAV vendors have promised unbelievable levels of effectiveness, endpoints continue to get infected.

Given today’s threat landscape, combined with so many security options available today, it can be daunting when selecting new or alternative technologies to protect your business. Your security team has unique challenges; therefore, you should be asking your next security vendor how they will meet your requirements—both for today, and the future.

Cyber-Attacks: Why Midsize Companies Believe Theyre Safe But Arent
Date: May 25, 2017

View archived webinar

Midsized companies are becoming an increasing hot spot for cyber-attacks. They face the same APTs and attacks as large enterprises, but have weaker defenses due to lack of resources and/or budgets. Weak defenses create not only the opportunity for attackers to extort resources from the business itself, but also the ability to use them as gateways to hack their enterprise partners.

For midsized companies, building enterprise-grade security operations center (SOC) takes a lot of effort and it usually fails. Buying a SOC service is a faster, better, cheaper option that gives companies a head start instantly.

In this webinar we will examine the pros and cons of buy vs build decisions and who should do what.
