The Future of Remote Work: Connecting Security and IT
Thursday, October, 01st, 2020
CIOs, CISOs, and the teams they lead are constantly learning to adjust the operational and cybersecurity requirements of a remote workforce. And the stakes are high. Faced with the combined challenges of an expanding risk surface area, a disparate staff, and a complex set of tools and workflows, enterprise teams need help.
Traditionally, security and IT teams have relied on a distinct set of tools to provision, manage, and monitor remote employee access to endpoints, apps, and other systems they need to do their jobs. Even though security and IT teams share a common set of goals, the lack of a shared toolset impedes their ability to gain collective progress.
As detailed in our eBook, distributed workforces may become the norm for most enterprises. Join us for this webinar as VMware Chief Operating Officer Sanjay Poonen and our security experts unpack:
-How a cloud-native and intrinsic security approach unifies security and IT management across all control points in an organization: endpoints, workloads, clouds, networks, and identity
-Remote workforce risks and rewards: understanding and addressing the three most common risk scenarios that might impact your remote employees
-The latest threat vectors targeted specifically at remote workforces, including ransomware, phishing attacks, botnets, and fake appsand other systems they need to do their jobs. Even though security and IT teams share a common set of goals, the lack of a shared toolset impedes their ability to gain collective progress.
