The hole in secure network infrastructure is growing at an exponential rate
Scottsdale, AZ (PRWEB) June 07, 2011
Today's IT network is more distributed and virtual than ever with the added use of remote endpoints and cloud-based applications. Unfortunately, this increase has also translated into an explosion of increasingly sophisticated malware attacks targeting these endpoints and applications. As point-based endpoint security technologies are added to mitigate each new challenge, so amplifies the cost and complexity of managing the overall IT environment. In order to provide insight into how security administrators can more effectively manage this ever-growing network, Paul Zimski, vice president of solution strategy at Lumension, a global leader in endpoint management and security, and Mike Rothman, analyst and president of Securosis, an information security research and advisory firm will be participating in a Ziff Davis – hosted webcast titled “Stronger Security and IT Operational Excellence: How to Achieve Both from Your Endpoint Management and Security Suite.”
The webcast, which will take place Thursday, June 9 at 12:00 p.m. EDT, will also feature Salvatore Salamone, executive editor of strategic content for Ziff Davis Enterprise, publisher of eWEEK, Baseline, CIO Insight and Channel Insider. Zimski, Rothman and Salamone will discuss how security administrators can effectively and cost-efficiently manage and secure endpoints in today’s evolving IT environment. Specifically, they will examine:
- Strategies that enable IT operations and security to effectively break down the traditional silos to reduce IT risk and improve overall productivity;
- How to centralize management and visibility of your entire endpoint environment – across physical and virtual machines, online and offline systems and a variety of operating systems and applications;
- How to ensure an effective, in-depth defense security approach;
- Key capabilities to look for in an endpoint management and security suite; and,
- Cost benefits of consolidating best-of-breed endpoint operations and security technologies into one unified solution.
“What we want people to understand is that throwing additional products at the situation does not solve the problem, it only adds to it,” said Zimski. “The hole in secure network infrastructure is growing at an exponential rate, making it critical that we find a way to streamline and better understand these products in order to make them work together more effectively.”
Zimski, along with his fellow speakers, plans to demonstrate that the key to endpoint security is not about simply adding new security layers, such as antivirus, patch management and configuration management, but rather how these capabilities work together without degrading endpoint performance and, subsequently, end-user and IT productivity.
