Security Convergence


Security convergence provides greater protection for the enterprise


Companies today are securing their organizations on multiple fronts. From physical security controlling access to buildings to IT security controlling access to networks and password security controlling access to data, much of a company's security data and policy is contained within multiple silos of information. For maximum protection, organizations must strive for security convergence - integration of these various elements of enterprise security. Convergence provides greater control over access management, optimizes resources and delivers a holistic approach to security infrastructure. For a leading solution for your security convergence needs, consider Imprivata.
