                Discover answers to:

                • What is ransomware?
                • How does it proliferate?
                • How do I detect and block it?
                • How do I know what systems are compromised or how the attacker got in?
                • Do I pay the ransom if I am attacked?
                • How do I ensure that I don't become a victim (again)?

                The proliferation of ransomware has ushered in a new wave of extortionware and a new generation of malware attacks. While these types of attacks are not new, they have become more insidious and sophisticated, growing in popularity in concert with the expansion of electronic payment systems such as Bitcoin. In April, the U.S. and Canada both issued formal warnings and suggestions, but how much that is reported about this new malware is true? Are we being naïve in our efforts to block these ransomware attacks?

                Attend this webcast to learn not only the truth behind ransomware attacks, but also how to protect your organization utilizing a holistic and unifying visibility into your network and endpoints.
