Government computer systems continue to be targets for attack by a variety of enemies - whether they are foreign intelligence, sport hackers, terrorists or malcontents. As IT assets increase in capability and functionality and as more data is produced and stored, this problem will only get worse. Government agencies are struggling with implementing efficient, powerful and rapidly deployable technologies to protect against these continually growing threats while at the same time ensuring they are conforming to current and future rapidly changing IT governance laws and requirements (i.e., CyberScope).
A single management server can provide the asset visibility, control and real-time remediation needed for highly distributed systems and security management to hundreds of thousands of endpoints, regardless of their location or connection type. Single management servers have saved many public sector organizations costs through reduced power usage, decreased software license fees, fewer compliance costs and penalties, improved information security process efficiencies and infrastructure consolidation.
Join our guest speaker, Jeff Schafer from the USGS Fort Collins Science Center in Colorado as he explains and shows how he's efficiently securing his network to solve multiple challenges easily, cost effectively and efficiently. He will demonstrate what continuous compliance, remediation, reporting and accountability really mean, while staying on top and ahead of all the various government IT regulations, directives and guidance.
