RansomWare is everywhere and quickly spreading through IT environments. Join us for an informative look at how to prevent ransomware from attacking your network.

The Wanna Cry ransomware attack that crippled hundreds of thousands of IT systems has made the threat of ransomware front-page news around the globe. This news should be especially daunting as research shows that Small to Medium Businesses and Distributed Enterprises suffer from a greater frequency of successful ransomware attacks than large Enterprise organizations. With the stakes – and costs – of a ransomware attack higher than ever, what can small and midsize businesses do to protect themselves?

Join Network Security Leader WatchGuard for an in-depth look at the best tactics for ransomware defense.

Highlights include:
• See ransomware in the wild
• Watch a live ransomware hack
• Learn why Threat Detection & Response is a must for today’s threat landscape
• Experience the ultimate Ransomware prevention solution, powered by Incident Correlation
