  • Modern software development practices dominated by component-based engineering and short development cycles have largely been a catalyst for rapid advancements in technology. These practices, however, have also resulted in an epidemic of known vulnerabilities baked into third-party software components of IoT applications and devices. These widespread security flaws, many of which are critical in nature, often remain unnoticed or unaddressed throughout the software or device lifecycle, posing significant risks to the people and organizations that rely on them.

    As software continues to permeate the ever-expanding Internet of Things, software vulnerabilities represent a greater and greater threat. IoT devices, like traditional computers, run on software that is susceptible to malicious attacks. As more devices become connected, understanding how to identify and manage security vulnerabilities within widely used third-party software components is critical for all stakeholders, including manufacturers and end-users.

    In this webinar, our diverse panel of security experts will:
    •Propose an expanded definition and understanding of IoT and the stakeholders at risk

  • DRI Insights: Achieving Resiliency in the Cloud Apr 21 2015 6:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Alan Berman, President/CEO, DRI International
    It is no secret that we live in a 24/7 world that demands information be always available, always accurate and always secure. In order to meet these demands a comprehensive risk management program must be in place. At the forefront of these efforts are the preventive measures that try to reduce the probability of a disruptive incident occurring. But as has been all too often the case, these protective actions may not be enough. Whether it be the force of nature, the actions of terrorists, the fragility of infrastructures or so many other disruptive events will and do happen.

    Left with the reality that we must prepare for interruptions to occur, the job of the Business Continuity Professional is to minimize the resulting impacts. Creating environments that will provide connectivity, processing and data integrating, more and more organizations are looking toward the clouds. Whether it be to ensure that data can be shared or looking for full automated recovery cloud computing has a possible answer. This presentation will discuss what the cloud is, how it can make organizations more resilient and some of the issues pertaining to its usage.
  • Leveraging the Hybrid Cloud for Complete Data Protection Apr 21 2015 5:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Jayme Williams, Senior Systems Engineer, TenCate
    Jayme Williams, Senior Systems Engineer at TenCate is protecting eight environments across the US and Canada – and each site has different storage. All sites require disaster recovery and backup across the application set. Having one solution would be ideal, but not possible – until they came across Zerto.
    Zerto Virtual Replication is storage agnostic and made it easy to integrate a new site into their disaster recovery plan. Their original business continuity and disaster recovery (BC/DR) plan, affectionately named the “Hit by the bus” book due to its volume, has been greatly simplified and the service levels they are seeing are outstanding – single digit seconds for their recovery point objectives (RPO).

    Finally, they are incorporating public cloud into their IT plans by backing up their applications from their DR site to AWS. With one solution, they can achieve their BC/DR and backup SLA, while reducing costs and introducing public cloud into their IT strategy at a pace that supports changing business requirements.

    With Zerto Virtual Replication:
    •Manage all sites in one pane of glass with one tool for replication and automation of failover, failback and testing processes as well as backup
    •Increase efficiencies with the ability to track and manage consumption across the hybrid cloud
    •Hardware agnostic solution does not require a change in the infrastructure reducing costs
    •Consistency in the BC/DR solution dramatically reduces operational costs
    •Replicates between different types of storage and versions of VMware vSphere making it easy to add new sites to the process
    •Point-in-time recovery enables failover to a previous point to recover from any issue – logical corruption, datacenter outage, etc.
    •Leveraging a public cloud strategy with backups stored in Amazon
