Eradicating Ransomware and Supply Chain Poisoning in the Public Sector
Kevin Jones, Vice President of Public Sector, leads the discussion alongside co-founder and CTO, Satya Gupta, to explain true runtime protection and why it's critical to get it right.
Today's cyber landscape is changing, adversaries are crafty and well-trained. Sophisticated, high-profile cyberattacks are now the norm--Solarwinds, PrintNightmare, and Kaseya to name a few. Evasive runtime and memory-based attacks like these have proven to be difficult to protect against with traditional endpoint solutions. Couple this with the complexity that every government organization faces with a mix of on-prem, cloud, and container software. While there has been a call for increased IT modernization in government, millions of legacy systems remain vulnerable.
Learn how Virsec can help your agency eradicate these types of cyberattacks that target runtime. Kevin Jones, Vice President of Public Sector, will lead our discussion alongside co-founder and CTO, Satya Gupta, to explain true runtime protection and why it's critical to get it right. Learn how our platform extracts a granular understanding of your software, preventing, in real-time, any attacker-provided code before it executes. You'll leave with an understanding of how Virsec Security Platform deterministically protects software, locking out the attacker before they can execute their malicious intent.
