Unique Combination of Endpoint Security Solutions that Minimize Security Risk and Maximize ROI

Business Drivers and Challenges

With the barrage of threats from both inside and outside the corporate walls, mounting regulations enforcing strict security and operations standards, and tightened IT budgets, organizations face the daunting task of effectively managing their risk and protecting vital information at the endpoint.

It's no small task and today's mobile workforce multiplies the challenge exponentially. Organizations must now extend protection and control of their users' behavior and corporate endpoints to:

  • Remediate application and OS vulnerabilities to stay ahead of threats
  • Maintain desired security configurations to reduce risk and improve operational efficiency
  • Prevent data leakage, loss or theft to ensure data protection
  • Protect against malware, zero-day and targeted threats to secure the organization and its vital information
  • Protect all computing assets, from servers and laptops laptops to removable media like USB sticks and CDs / DVDs
  • Deny use of unauthorized removable devices and unwanted or unlicensed applications to ensure a trusted security environment

Overview

In facing this challenge organizations have deployed many point products, leaving them with no consolidated and consistent policy-based approach. In these situations, there is no feasible way for business, IT and security groups to interact with each other because each solution is in its own silo.

Lumension’s policy-driven, operational security solutions enable organizations to effectively:

  • manage risk across disparate groups
  • comply with security policies and regulations
  • consolidate IT resources
  • reduce costs and improve overall efficiencies

A policy-framework is used to mitigate non-compliant behavior or vulnerabilities before problems occur. Operational security solutions make certain that desired security postures are consistently and continuously enforced throughout the enterprise.

Lumension’s solutions are used across a wide range of industries to address endpoint security and operational challenges.
