You Can’t Stop the Breach Without Prevention AND Detection

Endpoint security professionals are dealing with pressure from all angles. They must protect an expanding attack surface caused by employee mobility, while staying on top of evolving threat actor tactics and continued compliance mandates. To help mitigate the risks, security pros need to rethink their current endpoint security strategies and move past reactive security technologies.

CrowdStrike VP, Product Management Rod Murchison and guest speaker Chris Sherman, Forrester Research analyst, will discuss how modern approaches must balance prevention with detection capabilities in the context of an overall security strategy. Ultimately, this will give security professionals the ability to better deal with the influx of new device types and data access requirements while reducing the likelihood of compromise.

In this CrowdCast, Forrester and CrowdStrike will present:

  • Forrester’s Targeted-Attack Hierarchy of Needs
  • The six core requirements to a successful endpoint security strategy
  • Preparing for and responding to targeted intrusions and attacks
  • How CrowdStrike lines up with Forrester’s Hierarchy of Needs framework
