Additional information imparted on the webcast includes:

“Many security experts believe that nearly every major company is a victim of APTs,” said Michael Patterson, CEO, Plixer International. “These types of malware attacks often use a polymorphic technique which allows them to remain hidden and undetectable. Identifying and removing the malware takes time, patience and above all a good strategy. Attendees of our webcast will gain valuable insight as to identifying and stopping these attacks using valuable information garnered from Cisco ASA.”
