Converged Technology Group Asks CIOs, CSOs: What’s Your Best Weapon in the Fight Against Today’s Sophisticated Cyberthreats?

Managed Services Partner to Host Live Security Briefing, Attack Demo in New York City

NEW YORK, October 11, 2016 While thwarting a cyberattack is always the goal, it isn’t always the outcome. In fact, industry estimates show that malware often runs undetected for as long as 200 days with attackers and defenders playing a sort of cat-and-mouse game with target organizations’ most critical data. Experts say closing the window of time these attackers have to operate undetected within the network is the best way to mitigate risk. And, according to Converged Technology Group (www.convergedtechgroup.com), an award-winning Managed Services Partner (MSP) serving clients throughout the Northeast, the most effective way to do that is to deploy a best-in-class integrated security architecture that can help defend the network across the entire attack continuum – before, during and after an attack.

“The cyberthreat landscape is an ever-changing, constantly evolving living entity. The threats each of us faced a year ago, a month ago – even a day ago – are different today,” says Leo E. Galletta, President and CEO, Converged Technology Group. “CIOs are no longer looking for a single product-centric approach to securing their networks; they’re looking for ways to improve their security posture, and they want to make informed decisions about where they can get the best return on their security investments today and for the foreseeable future. At Converged Technology Group, we believe the best bet is an integrated architectural approach that leverages top industry research and the experience of practicing defenders who spend every day in the trenches learning about and fighting attacks, and ultimately translating that knowledge into solutions that meet the needs and budgets of a wide array of organizations.”

An Expert Security Briefing and Live Cyberattack Demonstration. On Thursday, October 20th, Converged Technology Group will host a live event in New York City to help concerned IT professionals assess today’s threat landscape, examine their own vulnerabilities, and begin the process of developing a tailored security strategy that provides protection across the entire attack continuum. During the event, an expert from Talos Security Intelligence and Research Group, an industry-leading threat intelligence organization, will deliver a briefing on the state of today’s cyberthreat landscape. As the primary member of Cisco’s Collective Security Intelligence (CSI) ecosystem, Talos detects and correlates threats in real time using the largest threat detection network in the world and works to assess and respond to those threats with new detection and prevention content for Cisco’s security products. Following the Talos briefing, Converged Technology Group will hold a demonstration showcasing a live cyberattack as well as the modern defense and remediation strategies used to combat that attack.
