SynerComm's 17th Annual IT Conference, at Potawatomi Hotel & Casino
Presentation: Why Network Detection and Response is necessary
Thursday • 10:30AM - 11:10AM
• Room: Serenity
Malware authors have not been resting on their laurels: new evasion techniques and file-less malware are beginning to cause real impact on enterprise networks. Traditional detection tools are being bypassed, and the exponential growth of traffic both inside and outside your walls make your security team’s job to find the needle in the haystack a hard game to win. Network detection and response (NDR) tools combine both AI and machine learning with behavioral analytics to connect the dots for your security staff. NDR empowers your threat hunters with real threat intelligence and actionable insights to events in real- or near real-time. This talk will explain how we got to this stage, and where NDR may fit inside your castle walls.
