BROOMFIELD, Colo., July 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Webroot, the market leader in next-generation endpoint security and cloud-based collective threat intelligence, today announced that Webroot senior director of security architecture David Dufour will speak at Black Hat USA 2016. Webroot is a Platinum Plus sponsor of the event, which will take place in Las Vegas, Nevada from August 2-4 at Mandalay Bay.
On Wednesday, August 3 at 1:50 p.m. PDT in Business Hall Theater B, David Dufour will host the "Threat Intelligence Across the Enterprise: Providing a Holistic Security Solution" session. Dufour will explore how organizations can utilize a collective threat intelligence platform that classifies and shares cybersecurity intelligence from millions of devices and sensors, and billions of Internet threats emanating from IPs, URLs, files, and mobile applications. This can improve an organization's ability to recognize and stop new threats at the endpoint, the perimeter and in the system on a chip.
"Cybercriminals have mastered the art of defeating traditional security solutions," said David Dufour, senior director of security architect at Webroot. "As the cybercrime ecosystem continues to thrive, real-time threat intelligence and machine learning will be required to improve the security posture of enterprise networks."
During the conference, CTO Hal Lonas, security intelligence director Grayson Milbourne, and other Webroot thought leaders will host live booth presentations on the current threat landscape, as well as the importance of contextual analysis and sophisticated machine learning.
