Cerdant is celebrating its 15th year providing the best security possible to all our customers. Our system enhancements and increased IDS capabilities will shorten the time interval on “discovery and containment” to reduce or eliminate “exfiltration”. Cerdant President, Mike Johnson, also reviewed the top information security stories of 2016 and revealed the top tools for combatting cybercriminals.
Cerdant’s Director of Engineering, Joshua Skeens, presented the best ‘bets’ to increase your security odds. Josh warned customers to stop gambling with their data, and cautioned against weak, guessable passwords stating, “Use 2-Factor Authentication everywhere!” The first step in creating the best security posture possible for your business will always be just getting started, and to keep momentum Josh suggests implementing 1 new security practice each week.
Introduction to the Next Generation endpoint control product that Cerdant is now supporting, Cylance. Cylance Sales Engineer, Peter Starceski, highlighted how the product leverages artificial intelligence and machine learning to provide defenders with an advantage they have never possessed till now. Peter also shared examples of how machine learning has proven successful at stopping zero days and preventing ransomware prior to any other legacy solution. He examined the shifting nature of the threat landscape and to how to move beyond signature-based threat detection to rely on a mathematical, algorithmic, and scientific approach to disarming a threat.
