Endpoint Protection

Endpoint Protection Business Drivers and Challenges

In today’s economy, balancing ease of doing business with endpoint security is a challenge. With the Web 2.0, social networking, and BYOD movements in full swing now – and an increasingly sophisticated cyber criminal element targeting your organization – securing your endpoints is an tough battle.

Endpoints are no longer bound to an office desk in a controlled environment. Employees install unauthorized and illegal applications on laptops and PCs, which can cause increased support calls, performance issues, downtime and lost productivity.

Solid endpoint protection requires a proactive and complete approach that provides true defense-in-depth and is flexible enough to balance user productivity and convenience with enterprise security needs.

IBM Endpoint Manager offers a unified management platform that automates and streamlines systems and security management for endpoints and servers

Remote Desktop and Server Administration

Desktop and server administrators need simple solutions for complex problems. IBM’s remote desktop and server administration products provide centralized management that enables administrators to simplify IT and security operations across the IT infrastructure. Standardized and automated remote desktop and server administration decreases risks, enhances productivity, and reduces costs.

IBM remote desktop and server administration tools give IT departments complete visibility and control over the computers in their environment for instant reporting, administering updates, performing advanced data center automation tasks, and reducing energy costs . . . all from a single console.

IBM Endpoint Software Asset Management

IBM Software Asset Management enables best practice procedures for IT infrastructure assets by managing critical software, controlling costs, and optimizing what is already in place.

A thoughtful software asset management plan can help prevent problems by more efficiently managing the software infrastructure. IBM software asset management takes a high-level view of an organization’s software, managing everything from purchases to deployments to maintenance. The fundamental strategy of an effective SAM blueprint ensures that assets are not only protected, but optimized for maximum productivity.

Mobile device management

Mobile device management solutions secure & manage mobile assets, across your enterprise

Mobile device management solutions from IBM employ a proactive, layered approach to managing and securing the mobile enterprise. They combat the security risks that arise from new variables, while ensuring the availability of mobile devices to maximize employee productivity. These solutions enable your IT personnel to track and monitor the devices in use across the enterprise, including employee-owned and corporate-owned devices.

Mobile device management solutions from IBM can help your organization:

  • Extend endpoint management with a single solution for viewing, managing, and securing mobile devices, laptops, desktops, and servers
  • Protect data on lost or stolen devices with remote password locks and resets, partial and full data wipes
  • Rapidly adopt new capabilities to meet the ever-increasing sophistication of threats and attacks
  • Help control IT costs and reduce management complexity as the number of endpoints that need management grows

Endpoint Security, Protection, and Compliance

IBM Endpoint Security, Protection, and Compliance provides unified, real-time visibility and enforcement to protect distributed environments against threats that target endpoints and helps organizations to comply with regulatory standards on security.

Comprehensive endpoint security solutions from IBM enable organizations to easily enforce configuration and patch compliance, provide real-time reporting and analytics, and manage anti-malware tools – across 70+ operating systems, physical and virtual endpoints, on and off the network. Unifying endpoint security with IT operations from the datacenter to BYOD mobile devices on a single platform reduces risk, shrinks remediation times, and improves uptime.
