FEATURING GUEST SPEAKER, FORRESTER RESEARCH, INC. SENIOR ANALYST, SEAN RYAN
COVID-19 has accelerated the need for Privileged Identity Management (PIM).
As the remote workforce expands, there is little question that Privileged Identity Management (PIM) will play an increasingly crucial role in keeping companies safe. In this webinar, guest speaker, Forrester Research, Inc. Senior Analyst, Sean Ryan, will cover:
- Why Privileged Identity Management (PIM) is a cornerstone of modern IT security, and how it enables organizations to dramatically mitigate risk from both internal and external threats
- The evolving IT challenges that PIM can help organizations address in 2021 and beyond
- How IT/security decision-makers are responding to an increasingly remote workforce
- How to dial in privileged identity policies, tactics, and solutions to condense the threat surface, while enabling end users to be productive in the post-COVID era
BeyondTrust’s CISO and CTO, Morey Haber, will follow Sean and discuss the clear and vital role PIM plays in properly securing, protecting, and limiting an organization’s attack surface.
Morey will then share an overview of the capabilities and strategic vision that, in our opinion, helped BeyondTrust’s holistic privileged access management solution receive recognition as a top-ranked vendor in the Strategy category in The Forrester Wave™: Privileged Identity Management, Q4 2020.
