WALTHAM, Mass. & SACRAMENTO, Calif.--()--Public and private sector professionals interested in learning how to detect, contain, investigate and prevent cyber attacks can register for a free live webinar co-hosted by Verdasys, provider of Enterprise Information Protection (EIP) solutions and managed services for Global 2000 and mid-sized companies, and HBGary, a leader in Enterprise Incident Response solutions and services. "Detecting and Defending Against Targeted Cyber Attacks" will be held Wed., Mar. 27, 2013, at 1pm ET. Register at www2.verdasys.com/APTHBG.
“Targeted attackers customize their malware and attack methods to gain entry and remain persistent in your network. Our flagship technology, Digital DNA, was developed to detect targeted attacks that can’t be detected by signature-based solutions”
The free webinar will feature Systems Engineer Garrett Hamilton from HBGary and Verdasys Senior Director Product Management Marc Meunier, who will discuss the latest intelligence on all states of Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) attack methodologies and how to defend against these targeted attacks.
"It is well documented that cyber attackers consistently find ways to bypass perimeter security to gain a foothold into your network," said Verdasys' Meunier. "They often use human-focused attacks, aggressively targeting partners and suppliers to seek out the weakest link in the defensive chain. Unbeknownst to you, the malware, once in, can remain persistent on endpoints and re-attack after a period of time or from an outside command."
Attendees will learn what actions can be taken to protect against cyber threats, including how to:
- Increase detection rates for cyber threats
- Decrease incident response time to detect and respond to threats
- Identify infected machines and deploy containment controls and isolate the malware
- Speed forensic investigation to determine malware behavior and elimination steps
- Deploy blocking controls to prevent malware from exfiltrating sensitive data
"Targeted attackers customize their malware and attack methods to gain entry and remain persistent in your network. Our flagship technology, Digital DNA, was developed to detect targeted attacks that can’t be detected by signature-based solutions," said HBGary's Hamilton. "Since 2010, Verdasys and HBGary have worked together to detect, contain and block new or unknown threats including rootkits, zero-days and other custom malware.”
Verdasys and HBGary offer a joint solution that features HBGary's Digital DNA as part of a fully integrated APT module with Verdasys' Digital Guardian Enterprise Information Protection platform. Digital DNA utilizes reverse engineering and behavioral analysis to identify and analyze advanced malware, including zero day and unidentified threats.
