Ransomware is getting more complex by the day. As cybersecurity methods evolve, so do the efforts of bad actors who continue to find ways to compromise your systems. While it was common for businesses to focus on protection and prevention alone a few years ago, nowadays organizations like yours must cover additional areas, such as threat detection and incident response to ensure that your infrastructure, and the critical business data that resides within, stay protected.  

That is why we have partnered with Trend Micro – named a Leader in the Forrester New Wave™️: Extended Detection and Response (XDR) Providers – to learn all things XDR. Uncover this new service-based method of ensuring security within the four walls of your office and beyond – all the way to the devices that connect to your network.  

Join us for this one-hour chat about the evolution of modern ransomware, industry best practices for security threat detection and response, and the Trend Micro Vision One platform. We'll look at:

  • The current challenges faced by security operation centres and IT security teams   
  • The evolution of modern ransomware  

  • The differences between EDR and XDR 
  • How to maintain visibility over your entire environment and centralize response  
  • Why Compugen chose Trend Micro for our own SOC
