Bit9 + Carbon Black Helps Enterprises Understand Today’s Advanced Threats and How to Protect their Assets with new eBook ‘Endpoint Threat Detection, Response and Prevention For Dummies’

Available for immediate download, eBook reveals why AV and other traditional endpoint security solutions cannot stop today’s advanced threats and targeted attacks

WALTHAM, Mass.—June 10, 2014Bit9® + Carbon Black, the leader in endpoint threat prevention, detection and response, today announced that the new eBook Endpoint Threat Detection, Response and Prevention for Dummies is available for free download.

The book reveals how traditional signature-based endpoint protection, such as antivirus, cannot stop today’s advanced threats and targeted attacks, and how detection, response and prevention are the three key security capabilities organization’s need to keep their vital data—including private customer information—safe.

“Every enterprise is a target, and business leaders are realizing the inevitability of a data breach,” said Ben Johnson, Bit9’s chief evangelist. “Being prepared for a breach means enabling security teams to detect, respond to, and prevent attacks in a matter of seconds—before the damage is done. This eBook describes the current threat landscape and illustrates specific actions organizations can take to protect themselves against modern malware and attacks.”

Endpoint Threat Detection, Response and Prevention For Dummies will help enterprises:

  • Discover how real-time visibility and recorded history drive emerging detection, response and prevention solutions
  • Detect attacks without signatures—enabling them to respond earlier in the kill chain
  • Rapidly respond to attacks in motion by performing pre-breach incident response in seconds—before data exfiltration occurs
  • Reduce the attack surface by using a “Default-Deny” approach that only allows trusted software to run

“Endpoint Threat Detection and Response is still a relatively new concept,” Johnson said. “This eBook helps define the ETDR space and shows the importance of prevention to an effective security posture. It provides security professionals with the information they need to make detection, response and prevention key components of their security programs.”
