With the increasing scope and sophistication of cyberattacks, traditional antivirus (AV) is no longer effective in protecting computers and servers. The recent WannaCry Ransomware attack has shown how quickly a broad-scale attack can happen. Critical operations around the world have been paralyzed, and organizations have been unable to access sensitive information required to conduct business. Federal agencies that serve as stewards of citizen data have even more reason to be vigilant. According to Law360, the federal government faced more than 30,000 cyberattacks in 2016, with 200 of them being significant threats. even calls for a more modern and united approach to cybersecurity. Clearly, it’s more important than ever for government entities to reassess their AV measures and abandon legacy offerings that offer little protection.
Cylance’s Ed Metcalf, Sr. Director, Product Marketing, and Chris Quinn, Director, Federal Sales Engineering, will provide insight into how using artificial intelligence (AI) based endpoint security can prevent even the most aggressive attacks on endpoints in a webinar on Thursday, May 18, 2017 at 11:00 AM PDT/2:00 PM EDT. The session will cover the shortcomings of traditional AV at the federal level, the types of threats targeting federal agencies, and what government agencies can do to better protect their endpoints.
Metcalf and Quinn will also discuss why AI powered endpoint protection is the next logical step for federal agencies. Cylance uses AI to combat both known and unknown attacks in real time, before they can execute. This level of protection ensures sensitive data is safeguarded, and minimizes the resources needed to manage an effective security program.
See for yourself – the webinar will also include a live demonstration of Cylance’s award-winning, next-generation antivirus product, CylancePROTECT®, in action as it prevents attacks from executing.
If you’re unable to attend in real time, Cylance will share the webinar in its entirety with you via email.
