SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., April 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- It's no secret that compliance is a driving factor behind many IT budget decisions but it can also be the most painful part of the IT administrator's year. Often, the most difficult part of this process is demonstrating that compliant processes are in place and properly implemented. To help IT administrators prepare for audits and keep the process as painless as possible, Lumension®, a global leader in endpoint management and security, will be hosting a webcast titled "Endpoint Security Compliance: Top 11 Questions Auditors Ask" on May 1.

The webcast will examine the ins and outs of an endpoint security audit and how IT administrators can put auditors at ease by having the proper information immediately available.

The webcast will examine the primary pain points of an endpoint security audit, including:

  • Vulnerability management
  • Patch
  • Antivirus
  • Configuration management

Randy Franklin Smith, an internationally recognized expert on the security and control of Windows and Active Directory security, will be hosting the webcast. Smith understands how audits work firsthand because he is an IT auditor and also performs security reviews for clients ranging from small, privately held firms to Fortune 500 companies, national and international organizations.

"The word 'audit' strikes fear into the heart of IT administrators everywhere, but it doesn't have to," says Smith. "If you know ahead of time what the auditor is likely to ask, you can take steps to ensure that you have the information handy ahead of time. That prep work can help make the auditing process painless for everyone."

The webcast will take place on Tuesday, May 1 at 12 p.m. EDT. For more information or to register for free, please visit
