WALTHAM, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Bit9, the leader in Trust-based Security, will present the free webcast “Application Control: An Essential Tool to Combat Malicious Software” on Wednesday, February 6, 2013, at 2:00 p.m. EST. Guest speaker Chenxi Wang, Ph.D., vice president, principal analyst at Forrester Research, Inc., serving security & risk professionals, will explain why traditional antivirus techniques are fighting a losing battle against today’s increasingly sophisticated malware threat landscape, and how application control is now an essential tool to combat malicious software.
“Application Control: An Essential Endpoint Security Component”
In the September 2012 report by Forrester Research, Inc., entitled "Application Control: An Essential Endpoint Security Component," authors Chenxi Wang and Chris Sherman wrote of the need for a new approach to security: "Attackers often penetrate user endpoints with new malware that eludes the AV detection. As a result, security professionals must consider a different approach, one that doesn’t rely solely on an increasingly hard-to-manage signature blacklist. In its various forms, application control delivers a much-needed value proposition for endpoint protection."
