Deception – A Cyber-Defense Strategy for the Next Normal

Middle East, June 11, 2020

Overview

 

Threat detection and response for evolving and distributed attack surfaces 

Over the last three months, we've seen digital transformation journeys accelerate across the business world, creating a new set of security challenges. Attackers have a very different view of a world where internal applications are exposed to the Internet and endpoints reside outside the perimeter. This is the world we live in and it requires an 'active defense' approach to ward off threats.

Join experts from IDC, Spire Solutions, and Smokescreen as they unravel the attacker's playbook and show how a deception-based defense strategy can help businesses fortify their cybersecurity and 10x their ROI from existing investments.
