Ransomware & Malware -- Are Your Workstations Adequately Protected?
Come learn why today's anti-virus is not tough enough to meet today's — and tomorrow's — threats.
Farokh will discuss why you need to have multiple distinct layers of security (including Exploit management, DNS/Traffic based Malware Filtering, & Next-Gen Anti-Virus) to protect your endpoints and servers, since "one layer" is not enough — as most PC's are protected only by traditional anti-virus software. See some real examples of how hackers have broken into the world's biggest corporations and the slow response time from traditional anti-virus providers to defeat today's newer targeted attacks. He will discuss and also offer a complementary ($44 value) copy of the Heimdal PRO software to all attendees who request a copy.
