Thinking Again about Threat Management

If your organization is like most others, your IT computing infrastructure has become considerably more complex – a dynamic, rapidly changing environment where:
  • "Back-end" refers not only to the hosts, storage and applications within the enterprise datacenter – but also to virtualized resources in the datacenter or in the "cloud"
  • "Endpoints" refers not only to traditional enterprise-provisioned devices – but also to highly mobile devices that are increasingly owned and managed directly by your end-users
  • "Networks" refers not only to electronic interconnections and protocols between systems – but also to social connections and collaboration between people

The security threat landscape has also become considerably more complex at the same time – from traditional worms, Trojans and intrusions to new classes of well-organized, well-funded attackers.

In this 60-minute webinar, Derek Brink, vice president and research fellow for IT Security from the Aberdeen Group, and Paul Kaspian, Senior Product Marketing Manager, IBM Security Systems, from IBM, invite you to think again about threat management in today's complex and rapidly changing environment. Their joint presentation and discussion will include steps you can take to:
  • Protect your organization from the growing variety of IT Security threats
  • Augment traditional approaches for detection with products and services designed to provide preemptive protection
  • Address security and compliance requirements at higher scale and lower total cost
