Share Article

Webinar series will teach IT professionals the benefits of a unified approach to security and IT operations management, what to look for in a truly unified solution, and how to best prepare for the future

Organizations worry about the threat landscape’s unknowns, when they could go far in defending against today’s threats by better securing the known: their own environment.

Enterprise Management Associates (EMA), a leading IT and data management research and consulting firm, today announced it will host a complimentary Unified Management for Security Webinar series. This series, featuring EMA Managing Research Director Scott Crawford and IBM Senior Product Marketing Manager Mark Ehr, will provide a comprehensive overview of unified security and IT operations management.

“Organizations worry about the threat landscape’s unknowns, when they could go far in defending against today’s threats by better securing the known: their own environment,” says EMA’s Crawford. “A good deal of the problem for many is that their approach is more fragmented and disjointed than it needs to be. Security tools and systems management technologies are too often siloed, may not integrate well, and frequently have overlaps, even though they often perform the same functions such as software distribution and control over potentially harmful change. This complicates management and leads to exposures that are avoidable, particularly when solutions exist that could unify these silos, improve efficiencies and – most important – better protect sensitive information assets.”

Registration information for all three Webinars is as follows:
