Beyond AV Tour hits Auckland & Wellington

05 Sep 2017

If malware seems like it’s behind every cyber attack these days, it may surprise you to learn that less than half of breaches originate from malware. It turns out there’s a far greater threat. Most cyber breaches are caused by non-malware attacks. Those attacks can’t be prevented by technologies like machine-learning AV and traditional AV.

Streaming prevention is able to catch both malware and non-malware attacks by spotting malicious activity as it happens. Carbon Black has built this technology into Cb Defense. 

So it's not traditional AV and it's not machine learning. How does it work? At Carbon Black's Beyond AV Tour, which swings by Auckland on September 12 and Wellington on September 14, the team will run a live attack demo that shows why streaming prevention beats other technologies hands down.

What’s in it for you?

  • Learn - About Next-Generation Antivirus (NGAV) and the latest trends in cybersecurity
  • Build An Attack - See how easy it is for an attacker to put together a sophisticated non-malware attack in your environment
  • Network with peers - Meet peers in your area in our Lunch & Learn setting (approx. 50-75 registrants per event)

In one hour, we’ll cover:

  • The truth about legacy AV and why it’s time to replace it
  • The tactics and techniques attackers use to get around legacy AV
  • The limitations of machine-learning AV
  • Carbon Black’s streaming prevention technology - a validated approach for stopping malware and non-malware attacks

Join Carbon Black experts and your peers to learn how to focus your cyber security efforts on streaming prevention through technologies such as Cb Defense.
