Bit9 Free Webcast—Application Control: An Essential Tool to Combat Malicious Software

Bit9, the leader in Trust-based Security, will present the free webcast “Application Control: An Essential Tool to Combat Malicious Software” on Wednesday, February 6, 2013, at 2:00 p.m. EST. Guest speaker Chenxi Wang, Ph.D., vice president, principal analyst at Forrester Research, Inc., serving security & risk professionals, will explain why traditional antivirus techniques are fighting a losing battle against today’s increasingly sophisticated malware threat landscape, and how application control is now an essential tool to combat malicious software.

In the September 2012 report by Forrester Research, Inc., entitled "Application Control: An Essential Endpoint Security Component," authors Chenxi Wang and Chris Sherman wrote of the need for a new approach to security: "Attackers often penetrate user endpoints with new malware that eludes the AV detection. As a result, security professionals must consider a different approach, one that doesn’t rely solely on an increasingly hard-to-manage signature blacklist. In its various forms, application control delivers a much-needed value proposition for endpoint protection."
