Now One Company Delivering Advanced Threat Protection for Endpoints and Servers + Incident Response in Seconds
Richard Clarke, renowned cybersecurity expert and the first White House cybersecurity czar, talks about the emerging need for Advanced Threat Protection solutions for endpoints and servers.
Bit9, the leader in advanced threat protection for endpoints and servers which recently merged with Carbon Black, will host a live news conference at RSA Conference 2014 featuring internationally renowned cyber security expert Richard Clarke on Tuesday, February 25, 2014, at 2 p.m. PST.
Bit9 for Check Point will reduce the overall operational effort of managing network and system security, accelerate incident response time and improve your organization’s overall security posture.
Bit9′s real-time sensor and recorder is the key to Bit9′s signature-less malware detection and incident response capabilities. It delivers unparalleled visibility into all activity on your endpoints and servers—including the most advanced and targeted threats.
Your endpoints and servers are constantly under attack by advanced threats, many with the ability to spread laterally and cover their tracks. If you’re depending on scans or signatures for detection, your organization is vulnerable.
Bit9′s real-time sensor and recorder delivers an up-to-the-second recorded history of your endpoints and servers—without scanning or polling. This enables you to go “back in time” to understand what software is on every machine, when it arrived, how it arrived, what created it, if it executed, where it spread, if it deleted itself, and more—all from a central database on your premises.
Advanced malware and zero-day threats are persistently targeting your organization. Traditional endpoint security solutions that rely on signature-based approaches and scans cannot stop unique malware infiltrating your enterprise.
As of January 1, 2014, the new version of the PCI DSS standard (version 3.0) takes effect. Businesses that are affected by PCI will have 12 months to incorporate the new standard (or new requirements) into their compliance validation programs before the old version of the standard is no longer valid. It will be crucial for companies to adapt quickly to the new standard in order to meet the deadline and avoid having to go through the appeal and or extension processes that can burden administration and raise the cost of compliance significantly.
