Virtual Launch Event - ThreatEye
The next-generation AI-Powered NDR
for security teams in distributed enterprises
Sophisticated threat actors have now adapted their tactics so that malware resident on an endpoint is no longer a requirement to breach an enterprise.
- Stand-alone EDR is increasingly less effective as an effective security strategy
- Encryption has almost entirely killed off the future of IDS/IPS
- MFA is not infallible anymore. In the past year alone, according to Microsoft Threat Research, more than 10,000 enterprises have been targeted by phishing attacks, despite MFA.
- Ransomware attackers are increasing their impact with new methods of targeting organizations
When threat actors evolve their strategies, you need to do the same.
Join General Manager of ThreatEye, Bill Cantrell, VP of Product, Russ Elsner, Chief Data Scientist, Andrew Fast, and Director of Threat Research, Joseph Hladik for our virtual event Monday, October 3rd, for a quick 30 minutes to hear about what our innovation teams have been up to, to help you combat the evolving threat against your business.
