Next On Dark Reading Radio: Endpoint Security Transformed

Modern endpoint security technology is all about focusing on the client as both patient 0 and as a treasure trove of attack forensics intelligence.

How many times have you heard "antivirus is dead," while meanwhile you, your company, and most every other organization out there still run a virus signature scanner on their Windows desktops? 

But endpoint security is gradually experiencing a rebirth, with a new generation of technologies that emphasize detection more than prevention, and responding to inevitable attack attempts on that juicy target: the end user machine. A wave of startups have emerged over the past year claiming to offer the next generation of endpoint security, and the old guard of AV security firms are evolving their offerings beyond the traditional reactive AV approach.

Join me on Dark Reading Radio this Wednesday, Oct. 21 at 1pm ET/10am PT, as we explore how endpoint security is evolving to meet the evolved threat actors out there stalking users' machines and devices.

[Check out Wednesday's Dark Reading radio broadcast and live chat "Endpoint Security Transformed."]

My guests will be Edward Metcalf, director of product and solutions at Intel Security/McAfee, and Ryan Kazanciyan, chief security architect at Tanium. We'll drill down on the key elements of this next generation of endpoint security, and how longtime AV vendors such as McAfee are transforming their endpoint strategy and wares, and how hot new startups in this space such as Tanium envision the direction of endpoint security.

Alive and kicking
Antivirus isn't dead, but it's such a basic these days in an age when attacks are getting much more sophisticated and social engineering is making a comeback in spades.

More basic and more important is effective training and employee education -- lest employees be socially engineered and allow attackers to walk right through the gates.
