Pittsburgh Chapter of ISSA December Meeting – 12/8/17

Come network and earn CPE credits at the final ISSA Pittsburgh Chapter meeting of the year on Friday, December 8, 2017.  ISM’s very own, Gary Johnson, Director, Cyber Solution and Engineering, will be presenting on The Next Generation of Endpoint Protection.

Presentation Synopsis

The Next Generation of Endpoint Protection- In 2017, AV-TEST registered over 250,000 new malware samples every day. This rapid growth in malware samples has grown their database to over 700,000,000 unique malware samples. As the number of malware samples have increased, so has the number of devices connected to the Internet. This proliferation of malware combined with a drastic increase in the number of devices connected to the Internet have created a need for a different approach to endpoint protection.

In this presentation, we will take a look at the evolution of endpoint protection solutions, compare the approach various vendors have taken to combat the latest threat and make a few predictions on what the next generation of endpoint protection will need to combat the growing threat.
