The Modern Perimeter and More: Countering Advanced Security Threats

From the Federal Reserve to Target to Heartbleed, recent security breaches have proven that existing systems are inadequate. Today’s threats are persistent, adaptable, and attack across multiple vectors, rendering firewall / IPS – based perimeter systems nearly obsolete. They are also much more targeted and better funded than threats of the past, dramatically increasing the likelihood of infiltration.

Given the failings of traditional perimeter security, many companies have focused solely on mitigation, using analytics to identify and and contain problems before they cause harm. Others have focused on filtering malware and other infiltration points to stop attacks before they start. Neither approach is working.

What should a modern security architecture look like, and how should it work? This Webinar will evaluate modern security threats and their consequences, chart the evolution of threat prevention, mitigation and remediation technologies, and suggest a course of action for businesses looking to secure their assets – now and in the future.
