The Importance of Endpoint Resilience at RSA Conference 2020

By: Sandra Toms | 2/19/2020

Will you be one of the 45,000 people who are expected to attend RSA Conference 2020 in San Francisco next week? Like the topic of cybersecurity in general, the industry’s largest conference continues to increase in relevance as hackers evolve their tactics and organizations invest more in numerous security approaches to stop them.

Around the world, Absolute has been busy preparing for the big event – from executive leadership to customer success, product management to engineering, our entire team has a very full RSA schedule. This is partly because our message of endpoint resilience is now more critical than ever before.

To thwart attackers, organizations continue to layer on security controls. Despite astronomical investments being made however, research shows 100 percent of endpoint controls eventually fail and more than one in three endpoints are unprotected at any given time. Organizations need complete visibility and real-time insights in order to pinpoint unprotected or ‘dark endpoints,’ identify what’s broken and where gaps exist, as well as respond and take action quickly. Absolute mitigates this universal law of security decay and empowers organizations to build an enterprise security approach that is intelligent, adaptive and self-healing. This is endpoint resilience and it will be front and center at RSA Conference.

Absolute Monitoring Internet Activity in the SOC

One of the places you’ll find Absolute at RSA is in the Security Operations Center (SOC). Using our endpoint resilience solution, our team will be onsite protecting RSA attendees by monitoring internet activity in real-time at the Moscone Center. Be sure to stop by, say hi, and see how it works.

CEO, Christy Wyatt Speaks About 5G

Huawei’s potential domination of 5G markets brings with it significant economic and national security risks. Concerns of unfair trade practices and compromise of 5G networks by China are intertwined and these two problems need to be treated independently: deter unfair trade practices, but also devise smart industrial policies to encourage 5G and national security review of foreign 5G equipment. Our CEO Christy Wyatt will moderate a panel of experts as they discuss #5G and the need for a new approach to looking at securing the critical capabilities that impact us as a nation on Feb. 25. Register for the event here.
