Active Defense Untangled
Once upon a time all we needed for security was Norton Antivirus but nowadays security has evolved in a way that we as security professionals can barely keep up with, hundreds of security solutions, next generation technologies, machine learning and artificial intelligence…etc.
Unfortunately with all these technologies and evolvement, we’re still lacking and the hackers are still hacking and the reason is very simple, we have less or delayed intelligence when it comes to sophisticated and persistent threats also we’re following outdated approaches for defense.
In this presentation I will explain what is active defense and how can it be fully utilized in production environments to achieve almost 0% of false-positives, I will also highlight the process of extracting intelligence while feeding it to deployed security devices so you can always stay ahead!
