Plixer Hosts Internet Threat Detection With Cisco ASA Webcast

Attendees Learn Disadvantages of Current Security Solutions and How Cisco ASA Can Protect Against Advanced Network Threats

KENNEBUNK, ME -- (Marketwire) -- 02/07/13 -- Leveraging its Cisco ASA expertise, Plixer International, Inc., a leading provider of threat detection and network traffic reporting using NetFlow and IPFIX, today announced a webcast titled "Internet Threat Defense Solution." The complimentary event will be held on Thursday, February 14, 2013 at 10AM & 4PM (EST) and will convey new insight on how Cisco ASA NSEL exports can help with Advance Persistent Threats (APTs).

Companies need to leverage their Cisco ASA investment for APTs, but often lack the guidance to properly monitor and react to network security issues. The Plixer webcast will focus on how to take proactive measures against advanced attacks using Cisco ASA NSEL, and other log data, to gain deeper contextual information surrounding an insurgence. Additional information imparted on the webcast includes:

  • 3 ways the Cisco ASA was developed to protect a company
  • How advanced attacks infiltrate 90% of companies
  • Why most security solutions don't detect advanced threats
  • The global scale of the advanced threat problem
  • How to use Cisco ASA to gain another layer of protection against APTs
  • Reporting on threats detected using the Cisco ASA
  • Correlating other contextual details with the Cisco ASA exports
  • Improving C-Level confidence that malware is completely removed from the network

"Many security experts believe that nearly every major company is a victim of APTs," said Michael Patterson, CEO, Plixer International. "These types of malware attacks often use a polymorphic technique which allows them to remain hidden and undetectable. Identifying and removing the malware takes time, patience and above all a good strategy. Attendees of our webcast will gain valuable insight as to identifying and stopping these attacks using valuable information garnered from Cisco ASA."
