ESET, a global leader in digital security, today announced its upcoming webinar, “Outsmart Cybercrime: Protection Optimized with MDR,” taking place March 14, 2024 at 10:00am PST. Presented by ESET Chief Security Evangelist Tony Anscombe alongside Security Monitoring Analyst James Rodewald and Field Sales Engineer Jorge Andino Jr., the webinar will shed light on the efficacy of Managed Detection and Response (MDR) in enhancing organizational security posture and incident response. Together they will delve into the complexities of combatting emerging threats, such as multi-extortion ransomware, through the utilization of MDR services.

“As cyber threats continue to evolve and the shortage of cybersecurity professionals persists, organizations are increasingly turning to MDR services to bolster their security defenses, reduce false positives and fortify their threat detection, investigation, and response capabilities,” said Tony Anscombe. “We're excited to explore the critical role of MDR on this webinar – which serves as the first step of a multi-layered security posture focused on addressing threats even before they transform into incidents.”
