Quarterly Briefing: Turn the tables on Bad Guys: Malware Unmasked

The cyber threat landscape is constantly changing, and even with the most sophisticated security you’re never completely protected from attacks. As part of our mission to ‘keep the bad guys out’, SunbeltLabs presents in this webinar how we use our own sandbox technology to keep a step ahead.

Sunbelt Software’s Lead Security Analyst, Brian Jack and Malware Response Manager, Dodi Glenn will discuss the current threat landscape and dig deeper into some of the most dangerous and complicated threats out there.  During this briefing we will focus on two different types of threats: malicious PDFs and rogue antivirus applications. Learn how to gain an edge when protecting your enterprise.

Whether you are dealing with spear phishing or mass attacks, join us to see how to deploy the right tools and learn how to quickly analyze and unmask malware. New threats require new technologies and techniques to protect yourself and your organization.  Sign up now and turn the tables on the bad guys.
