The beginning of the end(point), part two: halfway there

Friday 5 October 11:30 - 12:00, Red room

Adrian Sanabria (NopSec)

The endpoint security market has undergone two major rounds of consolidation over the past 20 years. After losing serious ground against malware authors early this decade, the industry has found its stride. With a better handle on malware prevention, endpoint vendors have turned eyes and resources to new markets.

Some of what I predicted in my 2016 talk has come to pass, but there have also been some developments I didn't foresee, like the balkanization of endpoint vendors due to political pressure. This talk picks up where the previous one ended. It will feature an updated five-year roadmap for endpoint security as well as exploring my previous predictions.
