Webinar Winner! Congratulations to the Winner of Our Motorola Xoom Tablet Giveaway!

Posted November 6, 2011    Mike Puterbaugh

Recently we hosted a webinar with VMware, “Close Your Virtual App Security Gap”. If you haven’t had a chance to check out the materials from that webcast, you can find the slides here. It was a great session, where the eEye and VMware ThinApp product teams talked about virtual app security and how virtual apps can easily be added to your enterprise security strategy.

Not surprisingly, the subject matter brought a large number of attendees to the webinar, and with them, came great questions. We held a random drawing of those who participated in the Q&A, and Jason Miller of LexisNexis was our winner. Congratulations Jason!

 A little about Jason

Jason is a Security Risk Analyst for LexisNexis Risk Solutions and has been involved with IT/Security for over 15 years, holding both CISSP and CIPP certifications. At LexisNexis, Jason is primarily focused on ensuring compliance with regulatory requirements and information security industry standards such as ISO 27002. (Interestingly enough, one of the concepts we discussed on the webinar was that without accounting for your virtual apps when it comes to your security assessments, your compliance filings are more than likely incomplete.)

As with many security professionals today, Jason’s duties don’t stop there. He’s also responsible for assisting with various internal information security programs such as vulnerability assessment and management, access control, internal and external audits, policy management and communications security, among others.

Jason signed up for the webinar to get a better understanding of how vulnerabilities are identified in virtual environments so that he could incorporate that information into the overall LexisNexis strategy. Once you have had a chance to review the presentation that Jason attended, you’ll see that we covered that concept in depth.

Congratulations again Jason, enjoy the Motorola Xoom.

Privileged Account Management: The Time is Now

Posted July 22, 2015    Dave Shackleford

There’s plenty of problems we don’t have great options for in InfoSec today. Malware is a pain point that keeps evolving rapidly. 0-day exploits are tough to prepare for. Privileged account management? We got this. We know the root causes, we know how it manifests, we know how to get it under control effectively, and there are great technology solutions that are enterprise-class.
