Software Asset Management meets Software Vulnerability Management

Presented by

Santeri Kangas, VP & Chief Architect, Flexera Software

About this talk

There is a critical relationship between Software Asset Management (SAM) and cyber security. Both disciplines require at their foundation the accurate and continual discovery and inventory of software assets within an organization's environment. Today IT asset management and security teams (and projects) are usually siloed within organizations, increasing the likelihood that security threats will slip through the gap. For instance, discovery and inventory of software assets are critical to both asset management and security teams - but are currently undertaken separately in most organizations. Organizations able to leverage asset management insights combined with vulnerability data to rapidly address the most relevant cybersecurity threats will be ahead of the game. They can more effectively reduce the attack surface for cybercriminals and hackers. That means they will be also better prepared to identify and respond to breaches. Join Flexera Software’s VP and Chief Architect, Santeri Kangas to hear about how these two disciplines can help organizations be more efficient and more secure.
