Join Doug DeGrote, CISO at XCel Energy and Anup Ghosh, Founder and CEO at Invincea, for an informative discussion that will cover:

  • How advances in virtualization enable the creation of segregated environments for your users to run highly-targeted applications such as the web browser, PDF reader, Office suite, etc.
  • How behavioral-based malware detection is being used in these segregated environments to spot and kill zero-days - including the recently announced Java 7 exploit
  • Methods for turning thwarted attacks into rich forensic information that can feed your entire infrastructure and extend its usefulness
