To reduce security risks and the threat of malware, data leakage and intrusion, every one of these devices needs to comply with your endpoint security policy. These endpoints all need to have up-to-date patches; active security software; and can’t use unsanctioned programs. If a device deviates from policy, can you quickly pinpoint the violation, segregate the device from the network and easily remediate the endpoint until it becomes compliant? What are the implications for automating endpoint compliance?
A new SANS webcast “Endpoint Visibility, Control and Remediation Leveraging Network Access Control (NAC)” will answer these questions and more. The expert/user session will examine the drivers, issues, trends and options for endpoint compliance, where NAC sits on the security tool landscape and functional success factors, and will explore real-world NAC applications that effectuate security policy, expedite incident response and optimize security.
The webcast will be led by Dr. Chenxi Wang, industry analyst at Forrester Research, who will be joined by Christian Ponce CISA-CRISC-CISSP, manager of information risk management at Vistaprint, as well as Jack Marsal, director of worldwide marketing at ForeScout Technologies.
This SANS webcast, sponsored by ForeScout, a leading provider of automated security control solutions, will take place on Thursday, June 28, 2012 at 1:00 PM EDT/10:00 AM PDT.
ForeScout invites users and media to register for the webcast at sans.org/.
The webcast presents proven process and technology considerations that InfoSec professionals can put to immediate use. Other topics that will be addressed include:
• Endpoint security gaps and emerging control issues;
• NAC capabilities and operating dynamics;
• Best practices to automate GRC controls and eliminate endpoint security;
• The top NAC applications that can accelerate return on investment.
