Managing and monitoring the integrity of endpoints and network devices are among the top objectives specified in Critical Security Controls. Through implementing these controls, organizations can improve their ability to protect against and respond to events, ultimately improving their risk posture and compliance over time.

The keys to achieving these goals are integration and automation. Most organizations have separate systems managing their endpoints and servers, and even more isolated systems managing mobile devices. This webcast will explore the benefits of unifying endpoint controls; how to tune policies for converged management of endpoints and servers; how converged policies can be used to more quickly detect events occurring on the endpoint or network (such as privilege escalation, decommission of security, etc.); views you 'd see with the converged data; how to converge your security technologies to present the converged data as needed; the need for speed to analyze threats in near realtime; and other technical and policy considerations.
