You're invited! IBM Endpoint Manager Proof of Technology. Columbus, OH. Jul 31 - Aug 1

You're invited to an IBM Endpoint Manager Proof of Technology! Columbus, OH (Dublin) - Jul 31 & Aug 1.

How do you manage the thousands of multiple-platform endpoints in your environment? Do you even know how many assets you have? Can you ensure that your servers and workstations have the latest software patches and are secure? How do you distribute new software packages to your endpoints? What if you could manage all of these things from a single server using a lightweight agent with a single security port?

IBM Endpoint Manager, built on BigFix® technology, provides a single console and lightweight agent solution for managing your endpoints. It combines endpoint and security management into a single solution. Using IBM Endpoint Manager, you can manage physical and virtual endpoints. Assets that you can manage include servers, desktops, notebooks, mobile devices, and specialized devices such as kiosks and Automated Teller Machines (ATMs). These assets can be located in virtually any location, from a server in the data center to a notebook at a coffee shop. With this unified endpoint management solution, you have a centralized view of your environment and increased control. As threats arise, IBM Endpoint Manager provides quick remediation and protection. You can report the health and status of thousands of endpoints in real-time.
