Taming Targeted Attacks With Vendor Consolidation


Targeted attacks use tools like malware and social engineering, to gain access to your network and steal or alter sensitive data. It begins when an attacker sends a malware link or file that, once downloaded or clicked, silently exploits vulnerabilities in popular software like Adobe or Windows. From there, the attacker gains access to your network and can take over control of a group of computers for an extended period of time. To thwart these attacks, your defense must include a layered approach to network security. If you use security tools from many different vendors, managing all of these tools will feel like cumbersome work. Not sure how many security vendors you use? Take our quiz below to find out!
