Scottsdale, Ariz. (PRWEB) August 19, 2013
Lumension®, a global leader in endpoint management and security, has been selected by The Nottingham Building Society to provide protection and centralized management across several layers of security solutions with the Lumension® Endpoint Management and Security Suite, L.E.M.S.S.
After a great experience with Lumension Patch and Remediation, which automated patch management for the company’s network of over 1,000 servers and endpoints, the decision to upgrade was easy, Ken Johnson, Senior IT Security Analyst at The Nottingham said. “Having everything in one place with the total suite just made more sense in terms of simplicity and total cost of ownership. With fewer moving parts it also became easier to manage as well as more secure.”
The Nottingham is one of the most respected building societies in England. The society has offered financing as well as real estate brokerage services to their customers in England and Wales since 1849. The Nottingham has also recently merged with another building society and acquired a real estate agency, which means more customer information and money to protect.
“We have a big responsibility to our customers; we take it very seriously and we do our due diligence and testing very carefully,” Johnson said.
L.E.M.S.S. unifies the functions of IT operations and security through a single console, server and agent architecture to seamlessly and more effectively address IT risk and systems management requirements across the enterprise. L.E.M.S.S. delivers best-in-class, modularly licensed capabilities across patch management, anti-virus, configuration management, power management, application control, device control and asset management.
With L.E.M.S.S., The Nottingham can control multiple security modules in one console, versus the normal three to six different systems on average. And the society is meeting its goals of being able to update all systems within hours and has an audit-ready system available to any internal or outside auditor. The reporting is built-in and ready to share with just a push of a button and auditors have been pleased.
“Solutions that unify strong security with the needs of IT operations are the future,” said Alan Bentley, Senior Vice President, Worldwide Sales, Lumension. “We love partnering with the team at The Nottingham and we are thrilled with their results.”
