Accelerating the Evolution of Security Using a Converged Approach
Organizations are challenged to secure and manage a new kind of hybrid network. Not on-prem and cloud, but work in the office, from home, and anywhere. Expanding endpoints beyond your organization's perimeter in the outside world makes them ideal targets for cyber attackers. While traditional risk-scoring systems can create a sense of security, many fail to factor in endpoint data. During this discussion, we'll focus on one of the most significant challenges you face - endpoint devices, and how people and processes, coupled with endpoint and assert visibility, will provide you with best-of-breed solutions to manage today's threat landscape.
