AppSense and Shavlik will be joined by the Cartoon Guru, Jon Casey, in booths 445 and 447 at VMworld.

Not only will we promote you to superhero status, but you will also get to hear how we remove a major headache for any IT administrator.

By implementing these top four strategies, you will mitigate at least 85 percent of intrusion techniques:

  1. Application whitelisting: Use application whitelisting to help prevent malicious software and unapproved programs from running
  2. Application patch management: Patch applications such as Java, PDF viewers, Flash, web browsers and Microsoft Office.
  3. OS patch management: Patch operating system vulnerabilities
  4. Admin rights: Restrict administrative privileges to operating systems and applications based on user duties.

If you have ever witnessed ransomware or thought what if, then stop by booth 445 or 447 for some fun and some useful hints and tips.

See you soon!
