A great danger exists if administrative rights are allowed in a whitelisting model: users that retain administrative rights may attempt to bypass or uninstall application control agents, and attackers may target the whitelisting mechanism to get bad code recognized as legitimate.

Join our featured speaker, Sean Power, CIO of a prominent law firm, in this interactive webinar to learn how you can:

  • Explore the use cases for whitelisting and the removal of administrative rights. 
  • Leverage an ideal solution that removes admin rights and sets up an application control framework that allows approved applications. 
  • Protect against sophisticated zero-day attacks, malware, advanced persistent threats and other application-based exploits.
  • Utilize an automated whitelisting product that reduces the amount of time IT must spend managing the whitelist profile. 

Register for this webcast now to learn how you can close a dangerous security loophole and add a fortified level of security against advanced persistent threats.

All attendees will receive the whitepaper Layers of Cyber Security: Modern Security Threats By Leonid Shtilman.
