“These results highlight the need for greater control in identifying and stopping advanced attacks on valuable server resources—before they execute—while decreasing the security-related administrative workloads of IT and security professionals,” said Brian Hazzard, vice president of product management for Bit9. “The key to securing enterprise servers—both physical and virtual—is to allow only trusted software to execute and prevent all other files from running. That’s how the Bit9 Platform protects our customers’ servers and endpoints against targeted attacks, zero-day threats and all other types of malware.”
