Threat Hunting and Malware Interdiction

Cyber-attacks happen every day. Their target? Network endpoints. PCs, Macs, servers & mobile devices all contain sensitive data, & cyber criminals want it.

Unfortunately, many of the endpoint security tools currently utilized in organizations across the globe are not doing a great job of protecting those endpoints. These ineffective tools mostly focus on preventing attacks based on file signatures but often fail to provide the visibility, situational context, and control security teams require in order to effectively respond to cyber-attacks when they occur.
ANM will provide a brief overview on how Cisco's Advanced Malware Protection (AMP) Visibility, Umbrella Investigate, and Threat Grid solutions prevents breaches, while rapidly detecting and remediating the most advanced attacks.

Join us, as ANM illustrates how to determine where malware originated, where it's been on the network, & all the related activity on the endpoint. As a result of this demonstration, attendees will gain insight on how these tools significantly reduce time to detection, time to containment, and provides proactive threat hunting.
Presented by Chris Perkins, Senior Security Solutions Architect of Advanced Network Management
