Cloud, virtualization, mobility, and consumerization have greatly changed how IT assets are owned and operated. Rather than focusing on loss of security control, the path forward is cultural change that finds serenity and harnesses the control we’ve kept. The Control Quotient is a model based on control and trust, allowing proper application of security controls, even in challenging environments.
As companies migrate to the virtual datacenter, executives must deal with security, audit, and visibility of their environment which has grown beyond their physical datacenter. Because of this, hesitancy remains and many questions are still being asked. What is a next-gen datacenter? What changes as businesses take steps toward a hybrid datacenter? When they move to a virtualized environment, how does their data remain secured and in their control? Will encrypting data in this environment achieve visibility and control of who is accessing it? Plus despite more knowledge on virtual risks, cloud services are still being purchased without authentication, adopting cloud first and then thinking about security second. So how can organisations win the struggle with authentication in the cloud?
Join your fellow professionals for this lively and insightful discussion providing a complete vision on virtual risks in a virtual world. Then understand a way to manage risk, maintain compliance, accelerate and protect business from evolving security threats.
It’s Not a Question of IF, It’s a Question of WHEN
For decades, we have played the game; staying ahead of the hacker trying to get their hands on our most valuable asset – our data. We invested in firewalls, anti-virus, VPN, IPS all to build an impenetrable wall to safeguard that very same data.
Our drive to the cloud has made us more vulnerable to the release of confidential data because it is impossible to protect a perimeter that no longer exists.
Join us for this informative webcast that will introduce a new way of looking at security which advocates protecting the target rather than the vector.
We call this “Secure the Breach”
In 60 minutes, we will explain this groundbreaking approach of protecting what really matters where it matters and we will give you key action items to get you on this new security paradigm.
Today security is consuming an ever larger share of total IT spending, but security effectiveness against the data-breach epidemic is not improving. Virtualization and cloud computing have introduced an age where data is distributed across and beyond the enterprise, the edge is diffuse, hackers are skilled criminals, and insiders (both malicious and otherwise) are a constant threat to data compromise.
This session will discuss:
• The security changes that virtualization and cloud computing introduced
• Who is responsible for security in the SaaS, PaaS and IaaS environments
• The new reality that security needs to be attached to the data
More than ever organizations need to cut costs, increase efficiency and maximize resources. Moving to the Cloud and consolidating your IT infrastructure is the best way to achieve this.
Creating and protecting cryptographic keys in this environment has moved to an initial upfront concern, but how can you manage this in an efficient and agile way when you don’t have security/crypto experts available throughout your functional teams? How can you keep pace with business demands for encrypting applications whilst maintaining compliance and security?
Join your fellow professionals to understand the concept of the world’s first Crypto Hypervisor, an innovative crypto processor created for cloud and virtual applications, a solution which allows secure and compliant elasticity, manageability and control of your cryptographic resources.
The crypto hypervisor creates a single crypto hardware platform abstracted into many Dynamic Crypto Resources:
•Automated provisioning of Dynamic Crypto Resources
•Dynamically binds Dynamic Crypto Resources to virtual applications
•Validated to be secure by third parties
•A Trust Anchor for cloud and virtual environments, protecting the cryptographic key lifecycle
•Provides security, auditability, scalability, high performance, and consolidated management
The savings with virtualization and cloud are compelling – but not without risk.
Learn how SafeNet ProtectV encrypts your virtual machines and virtual storage to secure your infrastructure from common hacker attacks, rogue admins and unauthorized copies of proliferating data snapshots.
Join your fellow professionals for this technically focused webinar with the Product Line Manager for SafeNet ProtectV.
Whether you are looking for a trusted storage and archive security solution for migration to a multi-tenanted environment or for compliance and IP protection, file data can be encrypted in many locations and in many ways during its flight from first creation to its resting place in storage.
The cost of dealing with a data breach vastly outweighs the costs of deploying encryption technology, but each encryption method or physical location has advantages and disadvantages and protects in different ways against potential threats.
These pros and cons are dependent on currently deployed infrastructure, compliance demands, sensitivity of data, vulnerability to threats, and staffing, plus the added complication of management by different operational and IT department groups.
Join your fellow professionals to understand how to identify the most cost effective storage location and understand how that meets the needs of the organization while at the same time introducing as little operational management overhead as possible.
Result. Fast, Transparent, Cost-Effective Protection for File Data in Storage
The cloud is on its way to joining the list of truly revolutionary innovations by combining technology with new business approaches that can bring significant benefits to your organization. The benefits of cloud - agility, flexibility and cost savings – also extend to strong authentication. Thousands of organizations recognize this and are already making the big switch over to cloud based authentication. In fact, analysts predict that more than 50% of enterprises will choose cloud-based services as the delivery option for new or refreshed user authentication implementations within the next few years.
However, as with many ground-breaking innovations, this trend has also brought about some common myths.
During this live webinar you will hear Jason Hart, VP Cloud Solutions de-mystify the top 5 most common myths about migrating to cloud-based authentication:
• SECURITY: Cloud-based authentication isn’t as secure as server-based authentication
• CONTROL: It is complex to set up, and hard to implement
• AUTOMATION: Difficult and time-consuming to re-provision existing users, and enrol new users
• CHOICE: Only one token choice per user, and can’t use existing authentication tokens during the migration
•TCO: hidden service & maintenance costs and high upfront infrastructure costs
Join your fellow security professionals to understand the business and technology benefits of cloud-based authentication
Many organizations rarely look closely at the Total Cost of Operation of their authentication solution, and instead make a decision heavily driven by the up-front purchase price. This approach shows that infrastructure investments and management overheads dominate the total cost of the solution, therefore lowering these overheads would reduce Total Cost of Operation.
Cloud-based authentication services achieve just that saving, while increasing flexibility:
• Up to 60% savings in Total Cost of Operation
• 99.999% service availability
• More effective budget utilization and flexibility with OPEX pricing
• Up to 90% reduction in administrative overhead costs
Join your fellow professionals to compare the Total Cost of Opertation of an on-site authentication solutions vs. a cloud-based authentication service, and then further understand the business and technology benefits of cloud-based authentication when evaluating your authentication infrastructure.
File data can be encrypted in many places and in many ways during its flight from first creation to its resting place in storage. Each method or location has advantages and disadvantages and protects in different ways against potential threats (or sometimes not at alll).
Join your fellow professionals to understand the pros and cons of many of those common locations and methods in the context of what types of threats need to be protected against. The various options will be contrasted against a standard set of comparisons to simplify the decision making process for those selecting encryption solutions for their critical file data.
