In a recent Information Security survey, 92% of respondents called controlling spyware an important goal. Vendors know how significant a threat spyware is, and, as a result, there's no shortage of antispyware solutions on the market. Defending against spyware on an enterprise scale presents a host of challenges: central management of updates, network and client-based scanning and monitoring, and broad-scale remediation and clean up. Since spyware is such a pressing problem and a productivity drain, it can be tough to take the time to evaluate the best spyware solution for your corporate environment. This session, delivered by Hardening Windows author Jonathan Hassell, cuts through the vendor hype and the marketing speak. Hassell surveys the many options for enterprise-class spyware defense to help you make the best decision for your organization.
