Are you rolling out Windows 7 or 8 in your organization?
If so, this is the ideal time to rethink your security strategy and deploy The Bit9 Security Platform. Bit9 is the only solution that continuously monitors and records all activity on endpoints and servers and stops cyber threats that evade traditional security defenses. Although Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012 offer numerous security improvements over prior versions, they are not enough to protect against today’s sophisticated cyber security threats.
With Bit9, you get an optimized security platform that places you in a proactive security posture for desktop lockdown; giving you confidence that your intellectual property is truly protected from today’s evolving threats. Such comprehensive security cannot be obtained anywhere else.
Here are two key reasons you should consider deploying Bit9 with your Windows 7 or 8 rollout:
The Bit9 Security Platform’s one-time initialization and deployment provides a smooth Windows roll-out and ensures that you have full visibility to changes post-deployment. This visibility can be used to ensure compliance for legal software requirements, for compliance with PCI DSS and for cyber forensics. In addition, you’ll have the assurance of a clean image when deploying new operating systems because it is vetted and from a reliable/trusted source.
Using Group Policy objects (GPO) and least privilege management is a good practice for defense-in-depth. But while this is practical to implement for access to data, it does not stop malware and does not restrict users from running self-contained executables. Organizations are shying away from GPO and least privilege management because it leads to high administrative overhead that overwhelms IT staffs and results in relaxed security policies. With Bit9 you are afforded the level of control and security you need with low administrative effort and user impact.
