Boulder, Colo. (PRWEB) April 19, 2016
Enterprise Management Associates (EMA), a leading IT and data management research and consulting firm, today announced it will host a research webinar titled “Achieving Hi-Fidelity Security by Combining Packet and Endpoint Data” featuring David Monahan, research director of security and risk management at EMA.
No one source can provide all of the data necessary for security monitoring. To be truly effective, organizations need more data, and they need it faster. Early detection of infiltration and compromise are key to response and recovery. Endpoint records are not fully network aware, and network packets cannot detail activities on host-based threats, so security professionals need both.
During this webinar, Monahan will discuss findings from his new hi-fidelity security research, including how organizations are using these data types, their largest drivers for integrations and their greatest challenges in integrating the data. He will also discuss rampant bravado in network and security programs concerning their organizational maturity.
Those who attend will learn why:
- Over 90% of respondents rated their endpoint security program’s maturity as competent or better but only 67% thought that their endpoint protection tools were effective
- Over 90% of respondents rated their network security program’s maturity as competent or better but only 63% thought their network protection tools were effective
- 80% of the organizations receiving 500 or greater severe/critical alerts per day thought their endpoint protection tools were effective against advanced threats. (More alerts does not equal more mature.)
The webinar is Tuesday, April 26 at 2:00 p.m. EDT. Those who wish to attend can register at: http://research.enterprisemanagement.com/achiev-hi-fidelity-security-webinar-pr.html
