Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

RegCast According to Webroot Software, there's been more malware around in the last 18 months than there has been in the last 18 years.

Four out of five threats come from web sites, not email. These web threats are increasingly sophisticated - and increasingly used not for fun, but for financial gain.

So how do you protect yourself against the threat of what Jon Collins of Freeform Dynamics, calls "a market opportunity for the bad guys"?

Find out what users are saying are the fastest-growing threats to their organisation, how the old ways of securing devices don't work any more, and how "security as a service" might be the answer you need.

Jon is joined by Ian Moyse, EMEA channel director at Webroot, who explains what the newest and toughest threats are, how to deal with them even if you are on a limited budget, and how you cope with when browsers are more powerful and your most vulnerable users are outside your firewall.
