“The significance and sophistication of computer security threats is growing with each passing year,” said Tom Cross, director of security research for Lancope. “Today’s enterprises have to worry not only about widespread malware attacks and hacktivism, but also more stealthy, targeted attacks from various parties including unfriendly nation states and corrupt insiders.”

In the midst of constantly evolving attackers, motives and techniques, enterprises are requiring more than the standard defense mechanisms of firewalls, antivirus and IDS/IPS. Join this webinar to learn about next-generation techniques and tools such as NetFlow that can significantly improve network security, reliability and integrity without maxing out IT budgets:
