Scottsdale, AZ (PRWEB) August 01, 2012
To help organizations better protect their endpoints against increasingly sophisticated attacks and secure critical data, Lumension® a global leader in endpoint management and security, will host SecuritySCAPE 2012, a virtual conference on September 25 and 26. Industry analysts, thought leaders and other business experts will come together to discuss the evolving state of IT security and best practice technical approaches for improving both endpoint security and operational management efficiencies during this free, two-day industry event aimed at IT security and operation professionals.
“There are several obstacles to effective endpoint security today,” said Neil MacDonald, vice president and Gartner Fellow. “The biggest issue is addressing the threat of advanced targeted attacks that bypass traditional signature-based mechanisms. Traditional anti-malware solutions depend on someone having seen the attack so you have a signature to protect yourself. When no one else in the world has seen it because the hackers are targeting you and your intellectual property only, no one else has the signature therefore you don’t have it either. That’s the single biggest challenge facing endpoint security today - how do we effectively protect ourselves from these advanced targeted attacks, or advanced persistent threats?”
SecuritySCAPE 2012 is an online forum that will deliver information on how the IT security landscape continues to change, defense-in-depth best practices on how to approach endpoint protection as well as case studies from real-world practitioners. Webcast sessions include:
- Think Different: Is it time to deploy a defense-in-depth endpoint security strategy in your endpoint environment? Neil MacDonald, vice president and Gartner Fellow
- Rethinking Your Approach to Endpoint Security, Chenxi Wang, Forrester
- A CFO’s Guide to Why Standalone AV is No Longer Enough, Derek Brink, Aberdeen Group

“The late September timing of this event is ideal for IT departments looking to gain new insight into the latest trends and corresponding best practices as they plan for the challenges they will face in 2013 and beyond,” said C. Edward Brice, Senior Vice President, Worldwide Marketing, Lumension. “Session take-away’s include how to make IT security less complex while gaining more control over your IT environment without impacting organizational productivity.”
“The endpoint is a rapidly changing environment and is where the majority of TCO and risk is centered in most IT environments,” said Brice. “As an industry, we need to focus more on the endpoint and do more to share best practices. This is why we are opening what was once an event exclusively for our customers to the industry at large.”
In sessions limited to Lumension customers, company executives will share product roadmaps and future plans. All participants may chat live with presenters and other participants, download whitepapers and more during the two-day event.
