This year’s leading security conference, RSA, takes place February 13-17 in San Francisco, California, where the world’s best security researchers will present the findings of their latest research against cybercrime.

Bitdefender’s and Citrix’s top engineers and security experts will join the event, making themselves available - booth North Expo #N3841 for Bitdefender and booth North Expo #N3534 for Citrix - and showcasing cutting-edge enterprise technologies.

Designed to help large businesses fight the growing risks posed by advanced persistent threats (APTs) and targeted attacks, Bitdefender Hypervisor Introspection (HVI) leverages Citrix’s Direct Inspect APIs to offer unprecedented visibility into guest VMs, rendering kernel-mode malware and other advanced threats inoperable. By combining the advanced security policy engine of XenApp and XenDesktop with the newly enhanced XenServer with Bitdefender Hypervisor Introspection security architecture, you can add an additional layer of protection without affecting employee productivity.

Also at the Bitdefender booth, Florin Lazurca, Technology Marketing Manager for Security from Citrix, will outline how Hypervisor Introspection integrates with Citrix’s XenServer, and discuss possible implementations for the technology in today’s datacenters. Live demos involving advanced attacks and APTs will demonstrate how Bitdefender’s Hypervisor Introspection can secure infrastructures and critical systems, offering visibility, real-time memory introspection, and truly agentless security.

With attackers getting faster at compromising victims and more effective at exfiltrating data without triggering alerts, cyber-espionage is becoming a serious concern for various industry verticals – with banks, state institutions, tech companies and hospitals becoming increasingly more targeted by cybercriminals. Even more worrisome, in some industries, actors are predominantly state-affiliated groups with expert skills.

“Trade secrets, aka proprietary information, are the most common data variety captured in Cyber-espionage breaches, present in over 90% of cases,” reads the 2016 Data Breach Investigations Report.  “Also represented are data types that help map out a path (configuration information gleaned from footprinting and fingerprinting the environment) and provide a means to move around in the network (credentials).”

RSA attendees are more than welcome to visit the Bitdefender and Citrix booth to learn more about how Bitdefender's Hypervisor Introspection works, how it can be integrated within their infrastructure, and explore additional uses for its deployment.

Here’s a short video of an attacker that tries to take control over a VDI, using a spearphishing email that leads to an infected website that delivers and Adobe exploit.
