Enterprise endpoint security fundamentals

Date: May 04, 2009

When times are tight, we’re all called upon to make more efficient use of the financial and human resources under our control.  Chances are you’ve been asked to take a hard look at your security budget over the past year and identify areas where you can make sacrifices to improve the bottom line.  In this video, we take a “back to basics” look at endpoint security in the enterprise and help you identify the truly critical components of your enterprise security program, answering such questions as:

  • What’s the current and future value of antivirus subscription services? How do the costs measure up to the benefits?
  • What about endpoint encryption?  It’s complicated to implement and difficult to quantify the return on my investment.  Is it really worth it?
  • How can I keep tabs on the sensitive data that my users are storing on mobile computers?  Are there cost-effective solutions to scan them for sensitive information?
