October 2019 Meeting

October 10, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Why is SecOps so hard?

JJ Zettle, Solutions Engineer


In a recent survey of over 600 senior IT professionals, 1E discovered that 77% felt their organizations would be significantly safer if their IT ops and security teams could be better aligned.

There’s no question that, to really secure the business right where it matters most (by gaining complete visibility of every endpoint and ensuring they are properly patched), IT ops and security need to be working hand-in-glove.

Yet it’s no secret that these two crucial IT functions frequently clash, and rarely harmonize. Partly the cause is cultural – they have different outlooks, skillsets and priorities. Often, though, the cause is technical, too – IT ops is frequently flooded with alerts, dependent on legacy systems, and short of budget.

Join technical expert, JJ Zettle, as he explores answers to both sets of challenges, with real-life examples from customers that have made their organizations significantly more secure by attaining unprecedented visibility and control of all endpoints.
