WEBCASTS / 09.05.17 / The Cylance Team

How do you build and operate a security architecture that enables business agility while effectively managing risk? Given the increasing sophistication of attacks, CISOs need a flexible and dynamic architecture that provides security across increasingly complex environments and a changing threat landscape.

In the latest episode of the ongoing Protect To Enable® webinar series, Malcolm Harkins, Chief Security and Trust Officer at Cylance, is joined by Mark Weatherford, Senior Vice President and Chief Cybersecurity Strategist at vArmour, to discuss Why Emerging Technologies Hold the Key To a More Secure Future.

Malcolm and Mark will focus on how current trends in security controls and automation are driving the demand for a new security architecture that adapts in real time to manage new user models, devices, and capabilities with reduced risk, cost, and friction. 

During the webinar, Malcom and Mark will also discuss:
