Proactive Data Security with On-Demand Vulnerability Management
The challenge for businesses to maintain a safe, open, and interconnected network remains constant. The problem is making this information both highly available and secure. Security threats are constantly seeking to steal information and disrupt business operations. Moreover, the dramatic increase in new vulnerabilities discovered daily – along with the rise of targeted attacks – make this challenge even steeper. Using case study examples from both small and large businesses, this session will show how you can immunize your network from these security threats, reduce your exposure, and achieve security compliance by eliminating network vulnerabilities.
