  • As more and more companies look to take advantage of all of the benefits afforded with cloud-based infrastructures, the discussion often quickly turns to “How do we get there?” For some companies, this single migration question can create an insurmountable roadblock that either keeps them from moving to the cloud or severely delays their migration.

  • Join this webinar and learn why consistency is the hallmark of an effective, agile organisation. With thousands of moving parts, ensuring that every user, every system is being managed consistently is critical. This webinar will show you how a best practice IT systems management software effectively defines, manages, applies and enforces IT policies across groups of machines.

    A state-of-the art Policy Management system streamlines the process of creating, setting and remotely applying IT policies to groups of systems across a distributed organisation. Administrators need to be able to view all policies from a single dashboard, customise them and assign them based on organisation, group, machine type, platform or any dynamic view of machines to ensure all systems are in compliance. By automating management by policies and enforcement, administrators can then take immediate action to remediate any system that is not in compliance.
    Benefits of a modern Policy Management system are:

    • Ensure distributed systems are in compliance with IT policies or recurring services
    • Streamline the process of applying and updating policies to multiple machines based on organisation, group, department or dynamic view
    • Achieve greater confidence that distributed systems are secure and in compliance
    • Manage policy enforcement of multiple groups of machines, applying varying and nested policies depending on security risk, business use or service level
    • New machines can automatically inherit policy settings without any intervention

  • Your Vulnerability Scanner is Lying to You (And What To Do About It) Recorded: Nov 6 2013 47 mins
    Infosec is known for constantly telling IT to "patch your stuff" to prevent getting compromised. Scan reports with a bunch of red are kicked over the wall, and scary reports showing thousands of vulnerabilities are an all-to-frequent result of a vulnerability assessment. But these scan reports are often lying about the true severity of the vulnerabilities, which creates more work for everyone and leaves Infosec crying wolf more often than it should. In this talk, we take a closer look at the problem with vulnerability ratings and how to have IT fail less by having to patch less, while simultaneously being more secure.
