Building Asset Management into Your Enterprise Security Strategy
Date: Apr 21, 2021

View archived webinar

A key reason for many enterprise security breaches is that security teams find themselves supporting systems, applications, and devices that they didn’t know they had. Often, attackers exploit these “blind spots” by introducing devices or code that appears to be legitimate. How can you get a complete picture of your IT assets – and identify rogue components that might present a threat to your enterprise?

In this webinar, experts discuss methods and technologies for gaining a more complete picture of your IT environment, and for securing or eliminating unknown elements that attempt to use your network.
