Waltham, MA, August 22, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Bit9 Inc., the market leader in Application Whitelisting (www.bit9.com), announced today that it will be hosting a live webcast with Nick Levay, associate director for information security and operations at the Center for American Progress (CAP), entitled “How to Stop Advanced Persistent Threats, Not Innovation” at 2:00 p.m. ET on Wednesday, August 24. In this Web seminar, Levay will discuss how Bit9’s adaptive application whitelisting has stopped every attack that tried to infiltrate CAP’s network and delivered unmatched endpoint protection.
CAP’s mission is to improve the lives of Americans through leadership and support of the progressive movement, which makes them a prime target for hackers interested in gaining this type of information. With the growing number of organizations plagued by Advanced Persistent Threats (APT), CAP anticipated imminent cyber-attacks. CAP has fallen prey to spear phishing and other targeted attacks in the past. Since the organization is dependent on its network computers for daily interaction with the public regarding political issues, it is well aware of the value of keeping the network safe.
CAP needed a solution that could eliminate malware, reduce support costs, and provide knowledge as to what’s running on its endpoints. Bit9’s adaptive application whitelisting solution, Bit9 Parity, covered all CAP’s criteria and more. Since implementing Bit9 Parity, Levay reports that CAP has had “zero general malware infections from our machines in lockdown…Bit9 has been effective at stopping everything.”
