Scottsdale, AZ (PRWEB) January 27, 2011
Risks associated with removable devices that users can connect to when accessing a Windows end-point span across an entire network. Lumension®, the global leader in endpoint management and security, is sponsoring a technical how-to webinar with information security consultant, Randy Franklin Smith, to discuss these risks and take a closer look at how native functionality stacks up against the requirements many organizations face in the real world.
“Users can connect to devices via Windows 7 end-points that pose great risks to a system whether inside or outside the network using removable devices (such as USB flash drives) and media (such as DVDs/CDs). During our discussion we will be taking the world beyond native Windows functionality to provide real-world answers,” said Randy Franklin Smith, founder and CEO of Monterey Technology Group and the voice behind Ultimate Windows Security. “This webinar will be both a technical how-to as well as a strategic big picture training event dedicated to making sure data security continues to remain a top priority for organizations everywhere.”
The webinar will take place on Thursday, February 3, at 12:00 pm ET and will further explore Windows features such as Device Installation Restrictions and how to define device whitelists. Smith will also explain BitLocker encryption for removable storage, helping you determine whether it addresses your needs for protecting against data loss through memory sticks and removable drives. Lumension experts will then demonstrate exactly how Lumension® Device Control works within the network; exploring the full picture of where Windows functionality leaves off and Lumension’s solution addresses gaps and risks.
“We are excited to further show the proven capabilities of Lumension Device Control to help organizations better protect data against leakage while continually enforcing policies across their IT environment,” said C. Edward Brice, Senior Vice President of Worldwide Marketing at Lumension. “This webinar will enable them better understand how they can leverage Lumension to add market-leading data protection and malware control capabilities quickly and efficiently across their complex endpoint environment.”
