Webcast outlines how IT security and operations can address top security concerns and challenges and adapt to new technologies and trends surrounding the endpoint.
Scottsdale, AZ (PRWEB) November 11, 2009 -- As the complexity of IT environments continues to evolve, largely due to the introduction of technologies like Web 2.0, consumer devices, virtualization and cloud computing onto the business environment, this challenges organizations to rethink the definition of an endpoint and their endpoint protection strategy altogether. According to the 2010 State of the Endpoint Survey, conducted by the Ponemon Institute and sponsored by Lumension, a global leader in endpoint management and security, less than half of IT security (41 percent) and IT operations (46 percent) practitioners believe the endpoint and IT network is more secure than it was a year ago.
To help enterprises understand the risks and challenges of the endpoint, Lumension will host a webinar titled "The Evolving State of the Endpoint: How Will You Cope?", on November 12, 2009 at 11 AM PST. The webinar will include a panel of industry experts from Lumension and the Ponemon Institute who will discuss major results from the survey and how enterprises can address these security challenges in their current IT landscape.
By attending the webinar, participants will learn:
