Bruce Brody, Sales Engineer SonicWALL
New technologies and advanced malware attacks have dramatically affected the distributed network and the security challenges surrounding it. First generation firewalls are failing to stop the invasion of new and sophisticated threats. Costs are soaring as IT keeps layering on devices to address these challenges. Coupled with this the need for additional bandwidth is increasing – just to maintain the performance of mission critical applications.

Is your firewall capable of handling the growing demands of your business while managing and securing the malware-ridden, application-centric network? Join us for this informative session and discover the benefits of upgrading to a Next-Generation Firewall by SonicWALL.

  • 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
  • Protiviti has conducted the second-annual Executive Perspectives on Top Risks Survey. We obtained the views of more than 370 board members and C-suite executives about risks that are likely to affect their organisation in 2014.
