Endpoint Security: What works and what does not work


Stephen Northcutt, lead researcher

Endpoint Security

The continuous and rapid changes in malware and antivirus solutions are a reflection of the creativity and passion today's hackers and cyber-criminals have for damaging and disrupting an individual or organizational IT environment. As malware improves, better endpoint security solutions must follow. Currently, it is unlikely an endpoint system outside of a corporate network could survive a determined attacker's efforts. This presentation discusses the current trends in endpoint solutions and offers guidance on both commercial and free tools to seek the necessary functionality, even if it comes from multiple solutions. Stephen Northcutt reviews the key features in endpoint security that really matter, how to shop for the best products, and why implementing defense in depth on your organization's endpoint is a best practice.
