Gartner Security Summit 2019

ESET – the global leader in cybersecurity – announced today it will demonstrate the benefits of its multilayered approach to security at Gartner Security and Risk Management Summit 2019 in National Harbor, Maryland. The demonstration will map four real-life targeted attack scenarios to MITRE ATT&CK, a global knowledge base of cybersecurity adversary techniques.

ESET Senior Malware Researcher Robert Lipovsky and Product Marketing Manager Ben Reed will give their presentation, “Protecting Against APTs Utilizing Multiple Layers,” at National Harbor room 11 on Wednesday, June 19, at 10:45 a.m. In the presentation, they will describe several attack scenarios and show exactly how ESET blocks them.

“With most attacks, our products can stop them on multiple layers. However, deeper layers often don‘t encounter the threat, as it gets blocked earlier. For the sake of illustration, we’ve disabled some layers to show that the threat will still not make it through the defense,” Lipovsky explained.

ESET’s security solutions are based on strong research carried out in nine research & development centers across the world that, among other achievements, uncovered how the world’s first malware-induced blackouts took place; discovered the origin of NotPetya, which caused the most damaging cyberattack in history; and exposed major ISPs injecting commercial spyware into legitimate software downloads.

“In the course of our research, we often come across new adversary techniques and tactics. As a responsible member of the cybersecurity community, we contribute our findings to the MITRE ATT&CK knowledge base to help expand this common language in cybersecurity,” Lipovsky added. 

ESET staff will be present throughout the Gartner event from June 17-19 at ESET booth #854 and available for expert insights on the company’s enterprise-grade cybersecurity solutions.
