Security threats have been evolving at an accelerating speed and are now an everyday occurrence in both cloud and physical environments. Network Security professionals might long for the days when the most common breach was a DDoS attack. As more and more bad actors turn their attention to valuable data and succeed in not only penetrating a network but also in stealing confidential information, media reports of companies losing customer data are becoming increasingly common.

VSS Monitoring, through its experience in various security deployments with Enterprises and Service Providers, observes network threats every week. Join VSS for a webinar where we discuss the most common types of security breaches we have seen and the kind of solutions your peers, network engineers and security professionals, are deploying to counteract these threats. We will talk about the following security threats: 

  • SSL-encrypted attacks, 
  • Spam-based threats, 
  • Socially engineered attacks, and 
  • Attacks against mobile devices.
