Contextual Defenses for the Evolving Web and Employee — Upcoming Webinar


This is the age of constantly changing advanced attacks and it’s spelling an end to static defenses that focus on inbound threats.

Threats are ever-evolving. The bad guys are getting smarter. And they are capitalizing on your unprotected data.

So as you race to take advantage of Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, and LinkedIn; as your workforce and their mobiles redefine your perimeter; and as your apps and data connect to and through the cloud – your security is getting more and more complicated.

Real-time contextual defenses are no longer an option. They are a necessity.

That said, what are the new key requirements for effective defenses? When I say real-time security, I mean things like composite assessments to stop the bad guys from coming in and solutions that keep your valuable data from leaking out. Furthermore, you need to understand how to contextualize and inspect HTTPS/SSL traffic at various levels. You have to be aware of your users, their destinations, and what sites they’re on or what apps they’re downloading.

On February 8 at 10 a.m. PT, Websense is hosting a webinar discussing how to defend your organization, and how to avoid being the next data breach headline.
