, –pm SGT with Sami Laiho, Windows OS & Security Expert, Senior Technical Fellow
The number of Microsoft vulnerabilities has risen by 181% in the last five years, with more vulnerabilities in 2020 than any other year so far. Why does this matter so much? When you consider that 1 in 3 breaches start from an unpatched vulnerability, and over 1.5 billion people run Microsoft operating systems every day – the size of the threat landscape is massive.
Join Sami Laiho, Microsoft MVP and Ethical Hacker, on this upcoming webinar as he explores key trends of vulnerability growth in the Microsoft ecosystem and how to mitigate most of the risk through a simple (often overlooked) step.
Other key points Sami will cover include:
After Sami's portion, BeyondTrust's Director Solution Engineering, Ajay Kumar, will share how BeyondTrust's Endpoint Privilege Management solution enables absolute control over every privilege in your environment to drastically reduce attack surface and windows of exposure, while boosting business productivity.
All attendees will receive a complementary copy of The 2021 Microsoft Vulnerabilities Report!
