  • Demystifying Attack Simulation: Top 3 Ways to Get More From Your Security
    Demystifying Attack Simulation: Top 3 Ways to Get More From Your Security Dan Cummins, Senior Analyst, 451 Research & Chris Webber, Director of Product Marketing, SafeBreach Recorded: Jul 19 2017 48 mins
    IT security teams are busier than ever, with executives and board members taking a newfound interest thanks to headline-level breaches. With all this scrutiny, validating whether security controls are actually working is key.

    Red teams, white-hat external penetration testers, and internal scanners can provide some assurance, but with attacks and successful breaches continuing to increase, IT must find new ways to stay out of the headlines. If current market spend is any indicator, many enterprises are simply throwing more tools at the problem—but that can just add to security complexity, and open gaps in policy.

    Automated attack simulations can help IT stay ahead of attackers, and break out of the constant buying cycle, by getting more from existing security controls.

    •Extend/enhance red teams and penetration testers
    •Reduce exposure time
    •Verify that existing tools are working as expected

    Join us at 11am ET on July 19th with Dan Cummins, Senior Analyst, 451 Research and Chris Webber, Director of Product Marketing, SafeBreach as they explore breach and attack simulation technology.

    Computing and applications in IT have shifted over the last decade from a de-centralized to a centralized, cloud-based model. New Internet of Things applications promise to reverse that trend with an emphasis on local edge computing and analytics, and create a continuum of new aggregation points to address the unique needs of each IoT vertical application. This webinar will look at key drivers behind the re-emergence of the edge in IoT analytics and the growing demand for near-edge aggregation models to solve for application latency and cost constraints.
  • Why Hybrid IT is a Big Opportunity for Managed Security Service Providers
    Why Hybrid IT is a Big Opportunity for Managed Security Service Providers Aaron Sherrill, Senior Analyst & Dan Thompson, Senior Analyst Recorded: Jul 18 2017 57 mins
    The enterprise is shifting away from on–premise-only IT to a Hybrid IT model that delivers services using internal resources and/or external resources and services, often from multiple providers. While this model of IT can result in cost savings, performance optimization and greater agility, it also significantly increases the complexities of cybersecurity for the enterprise. Enterprises already struggling with cybersecurity will need help to address these concerns – concerns that many enterprises are not aware of or are unable to tackle. The Hybrid IT model does, however, present unique challenges for Managed Security Service Providers (MSSPs), as these providers will be asked to secure environments that span multiple platforms, and in some cases disparate business units. MSSPs are poised to benefit from this shift if they can deliver services to address and mitigate these threats.

  • When Channel Meets Cloud: How Distribution is Adapting to "as-a-Service"
    When Channel Meets Cloud: How Distribution is Adapting to "as-a-Service" Rory Duncan, Research Director Recorded: Jul 18 2017 46 mins
    As the virtualization of IT has increased, the traditional role of the channel partner has changed. Much of the physical infrastructure delivered through distribution has become invisible to end-users, while hyper-convergence has narrowed both hardware and software supply requirements further. Despite this, the role of the channel has never been more important in terms of the delivery of services for support, maintenance and consulting. And with the emergence of new kinds of managed services, hardware appliances, and security requirements, the ability to “connect the dots” will become a key differentiator for those with long-term customer relationships. In this session, Rory Duncan, Research Director for Managed Services & Hosting will outline some of the pitfalls as well as the opportunities for IT distribution partners in the era of Cloud.
