How to Build an Endpoint Security Strategy in AWS

Today’s cloud-based endpoint security solutions differ significantly from traditional on-premises solutions. Still considered a basic security requirement, endpoint security is the cornerstone of any successful cloud migration strategy.

In this on-demand webcast, SANS analyst Thomas Banasik identifies the top challenges businesses face when migrating to the cloud and walks through the process of protecting cloud assets by using a defense-in-depth architecture to create a readily deployable, fully integrated endpoint security strategy.

Attendees will learn:

  • Evaluate security, migration, scale, speed and complexity requirements
  • Implement key endpoint security capabilities, including integrated machine learning, EDR, UBA and DLP solutions
  • Deploy endpoint security agents and use a single pane of glass platform to increase visibility
  • Employ agentless monitoring for synchronized threat intelligence
