Evading Anti-Virus Solutions with Dynamic Payloads in Metasploit Pro
Presenter: David Maloney, Software Engineer for Metasploit, Rapid7; Christian Kirsch, Senior Product Marketing Manager, Rapid7
Malicious attackers use custom payloads to evade anti-virus solutions. Because traditional Metasploit Framework payloads are open source and well known to AV vendors, they are often quarantined by AV solutions when conducting a penetration test, significantly delaying an engagement or even stopping a successful intrusion, giving the organization a false sense of security. Penetration testers must therefore have the ability to evade AV solutions to simulate realistic attacks. In this webcast, David Maloney will demonstrate a new AV evasion technique in Metasploit Pro that evades detection in more than 90% of cases and has the ability to evade all ten leading anti-virus solutions.

5 Tips to Protect Your Small Business from Cyber Attacks
Presenter: Kevin Beaver, Independent Security Consultant, Nate Crampton, Product Marketing Manager
Small businesses don-t have a big budget for security tools. They often don-t even have the staff or in-house skills to run the security program they need to protect their network.
