Archived: Part 1: IT Operations vs. IT Security: Tearing Down Internal Silos by Unifying Endpoint Management

On-Demand Webcast|1 hour

Your IT department and security department may both work for the same company, but due to opposing objectives, they don't always act like they’re on the same team. Each unit has its own priorities, and its own set of point solutions for managing endpoints. This can lead to dangerous silos developing within the walls of your organization, resulting in poor asset visibility and a confusing jumble of unreliable security data.

To combat this problem, companies should consider how they can simplify and unify all aspects of endpoint device management – including asset discovery and visibility, client management, risk and compliance management, data monitoring, and threat hunting.

In this webinar, we will…

  • Examine common points of contention where IT and security teams most commonly become misaligned and act in opposition of each other’s interests.
  • Discuss strategies, policies and management philosophies that encourage IT operations and security teams to work together in unison.
  • Reveal how converging endpoint management onto a single platform can eliminate point solutions and tear down silos between teams.
