KENNEBUNK, ME (June 21, 2016) — Plixer International, a leading security analytics company, announced today that it will be holding a webcast on How to Detect Data Leaks. With enough persistence, phishing attacks are often successful, and the firewalls are failing to stop the infiltrations. Most companies today are taking the position that devices on their network are already infected. For many organizations, monitoring for unwanted behaviors has become the last defense. This webcast discusses new and innovative methods for uncovering very methodical, low-and-slow data leaks that are helping thieves steal corporate information right under our noses.
“If it isn’t enough to use good passwords and keep patches up to date,” said Thomas Pore, Director of Field Support at Plixer, “we have to baseline communications and constantly monitor for behaviors that fall outside of normal activities. Low and slow data leaks require detection techniques that maintain state for extended periods of time.”
To add context related to the flows being reported on, Plixer will also explain how to gain definitive insight into encrypted connections headed to content delivery networks such as Akamai and Amazon AWS. With the growth of encrypted traffic tripling in the last year, network and security administrators need to know why so much traffic, for example, is headed to Akamai. Is it actually Netflix?
The webcast will be held at 2 PM EST on June 29th, 2016. To sign up for the webcast, visit: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/813557616039041028
