  • Demystifying Service Mesh: New Pattern or New Technology?
    Demystifying Service Mesh: New Pattern or New Technology?
    Marco Palladino, CTO & Co-Founder, Kong Recorded: Dec 7 2018 64 mins
    In a short period of time, service APIs went from being primarily an edge interface connecting developers outside of the organization with internal systems to the glue that binds those internal systems (microservices) into a functioning whole. Consequently, one of the unavoidable results of microservice-oriented architectures is that internal communication within the data center will increase. Service mesh arose as a potential solution to the challenges that arise from increased East-West traffic by providing a different framework for deploying existing technology.

    However, most of what service mesh introduces has been provided for many years by API Management products. Features such as observability, network error handling, health-checks, etc. are hallmarks of API management. These features don’t constitute anything novel in themselves, but as a pattern, service mesh introduces a new way of deploying those features within our architecture.

    Join Kong CTO and Co-Founder Marco Palladino as he walks attendees through the architectural changes that have led to the rise of service mesh and why legacy API management solutions born before the advent of containers can’t keep up.

    Webinar takeaways:

    - Service mesh as an architecture pattern, not a technology
    - The implications of adopting microservices-oriented architectures
    - Why traditional API management solutions can’t keep up

  • End-to-End Reactive Data Access Using R2DBC with RSocket and Proteus
    End-to-End Reactive Data Access Using R2DBC with RSocket and Proteus
    Ryland Degnan, co-founder and CTO of Netifi and Dan Baskette, Pivotal host Recorded: Dec 6 2018 61 mins
    Lack of asynchronous relational database drivers in Java has been a barrier to writing scalable, data-driven applications for many. R2DBC is seeking to change this with a new API designed from the ground up for reactive programming against relational databases—its intent ito support reactive data access built on natively asynchronous, non-blocking SQL database drivers.

    How does this change the game for data access in the cloud? Used in conjunction with RSocket and Proteus, it is now possible to write applications benefiting from reactive streaming end-to-end, from the browser all the way to the database. No more fiddling with paging APIs, polling for updates, or writing complex logic to merge data from multiple sources--reactive streams can handle this all for you!

    RSocket is an open-source, reactive networking protocol that is a collaborative development initiative of Netifi with Pivotal, Facebook, and others. Proteus is a freely available broker for RSocket that is designed to handle the challenges of communication between complex networks of services—both within the data center and over the internet—extending to mobile devices and browsers.

    Attend this webinar to learn how to use Pivotal Cloud Foundry with R2DBC and Proteus to build reactive microservices that return large amounts of data in a streaming fashion over RSocket.

    Architects and developers know that building a great-looking app is only the beginning. Liberating data quickly and at unlimited scale is what allows you to deliver a seamless application experience every time – regardless of device, location, or time. But traditional relational databases weren’t designed to meet the rapidly changing requirements of modern web, mobile, and IoT apps that have to deliver responsive digital experiences.

    In many situations, a data store based around NoSQL may hold the key – but there’s no one-size-fits-all solution. So what are the practical considerations when evaluating NoSQL options?

    In this webinar we’ll share practical advice, best practices, and real-world lessons learned from customers. The focus will be choosing the applications best suited to NoSQL, and then moving them from a traditional RDBMS to a distributed NoSQL database. Topics will include:


    -How application needs are evolving in the world of digital
    -When to consider NoSQL versus a traditional RDBMS
    -Pros and cons of different NoSQL architectures
    -When to use a document-centric option like Couchbase
    -How to bridge the gap between NoSQL and SQL
    -Strategies for migrating to a distributed NoSQL solution

  • Become a Purpose-Driven Organization
    Become a Purpose-Driven Organization
    Shannon Mason, VP of Product Management and Val Zolyak, Director of Product Management Recorded: Dec 5 2018 61 mins
    In today’s fast-paced, disruption-prone markets, it’s not enough to simply optimize for feature delivery. Your entire organization must be aligned around the right outcomes and empowered to achieve them, because velocity and throughput count for nothing if you’re not delivering real customer value.

    In order to do this, your data has to be transparent and actionable, enabling stakeholders at all levels to see how their efforts are impacting the business. Team members need the autonomy to make informed decisions about how their work gets done, while those at the program level need to see dynamic data roll-ups and help remove barriers that create the dreaded “work about work.”

    Leadership needs clarity to ensure that the organization’s strategy is delivering on key objectives and producing high-value outcomes.

    During this webinar, Shannon Mason, VP of Product Management and Val Zolyak, Director of Product Management, will discuss how purpose-driven organizations can:
    •Align teams and empower them to innovate
    •Plan quickly, continuously and confidently
    •Create an outcome-oriented culture

    It is this shared understanding of work that helps to create an outcome-oriented culture, where everyone is accountable for delivering value instead of just velocity.

  • Secure By Design: Ensuring That Security Is Built In
    Secure By Design: Ensuring That Security Is Built In
    Chris Wysopal, Chief Technology Officer and Co-Founder at CA Veracode Dec 10 2018 8:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    As software becomes a bigger component of the value delivered by companies in every industry, it is no exaggeration to say that every company is becoming a software company that is competing with software.

    Companies are pushing the envelope on how to tool up their internal software factory to make software better, faster and more efficiently. By necessity, developers more often assemble software than create it from scratch, as they are more frequently incorporating open source libraries to speed up time-to-market. However, as open source libraries increase, so do the number of vulnerabilities, resulting in increased risk.

    In this session, Chris Wysopal, Chief Technology Officer and Co-Founder at CA Veracode discusses what it means to build software secure by design. He will describe how to build a software development process that has continuous security, is measurable, and is transparent.
  • Trends in the Industry: Setting the Stage on Open Source Trends
    Trends in the Industry: Setting the Stage on Open Source Trends
    Mark Curphey, VP of Strategy, Veracode Dec 11 2018 10:30 am UTC 42 mins
    Open source is here to stay. Iconic brands like Google, Facebook, and Twitter have pioneered the practice of building their platforms on a core of code that is shared with the public and free for anyone to use. Rather than build applications from scratch, today’s developers first look to third-party code to kick start their innovation in the form of open source libraries. Unfortunately, reusable code also means reusable vulnerabilities, and the bad guys are increasingly turning to attacking open-source. In a recent study by Veracode, a whopping 88% of Java applications had at least one flaw in an open-source library, leaving application security managers faced with the challenging question: how can we keep innovating quickly without introducing vulnerabilities into our code base?

    The solution is multi-faceted – part education, part technology, part process change. Join us for our Virtual Summit, The Open Source Conundrum: Managing your Risk, as we dig into all the pieces of this solution.

    We find our customers pushing the envelope on how to tool up their internal software factory to make software better, faster and more efficiently. By necessity, software is more often assembled than it is created from scratch, as developers are more frequently incorporating open source libraries to speed up time-to-market. But as open source libraries increase, so do the number of vulnerabilities, resulting in increased risk.

    In this session, Veracode CTO Chris Wysopal talks about what it means to be secure by design, and why businesses need to focus on prevention. The days of detect-and-respond tactics are a thing of the past – we’re living in an age when the attacks will happen before you have the time to find and respond to them. Attendees will also learn about why an application security program is imperative to data protection, how to mitigate open source risk and ensure secure coding practices are in place to prove that security is a top priority for your organisation.
  • Dissecting XSS Flaw In Commercial Code: Why Open Source Isn't Your Only Concern
    Dissecting XSS Flaw In Commercial Code: Why Open Source Isn't Your Only Concern
    Matt Runkle, Application Security Consultant, Veracode Dec 11 2018 12:30 pm UTC 49 mins
    It’s no secret that open source security is a hotly debated topic. However it’s important to keep in mind that commercially licensed third-party software carries much of the same risk as open source software. While helping a customer attain a Verified certification, one of Veracode’s application security consultants uncovered a cross-site scripting flaw in the popular Telerik Reporting project. The flaw has since been patched but it’s these types of unknown risks that organizations take when introducing third party code into their environment.

    During this talk, you’ll hear from Matt Runkle, the AppSec Consultant who uncovered the XSS flaw, to get insight into the mind of a hacker and hear how vulnerabilities like XSS are commonly exploited in third party software and how you can take action to prevent attacks like this in your own environment.

  • Why Is Open Source Use Risky?
    Why Is Open Source Use Risky?
    Adrian Lane, Analysis, Securosis Dec 12 2018 10:30 am UTC 43 mins
    When software development moves at the speed of DevOps, creating every line of code from scratch is simply not feasible. In turn, most development shops are increasingly relying on open source libraries to supplement their code.

    The use of these open source libraries is not in itself a bad thing, on the contrary, it’s best practice, and not taking advantage of this code would put your organization at a competitive disadvantage. The risky part lies with the visibility. What happens when it’s revealed that an open source library contains a major vulnerability? Would you know if you are using that library? What about where or how you are using it? Could you find out fast enough to patch it? Attend this session to get up to speed on open source library use, including its risks and best practices.

    Illustrating the Systemic Risk Caused by Open Source Library Use
    Tim Jarrett, Senior Director of Enterprise Security Strategy, Veracode Dec 12 2018 11:30 am UTC 48 mins
    How far-reaching is a vulnerability in one open source component? We recently took a closer look at one vulnerable component to find out. We followed the path of one component library -- Apache Commons Collection (or ACC) that contained a serious vulnerability. We traced all the other libraries ACC touched and, in turn, made vulnerable. In the end, we found its vulnerability had spread to an astounding 80,323 additional components.

    Attend this session to follow the path of this vulnerability and get a clear picture of exactly how and why open source libraries can pose such significant risk, and how to use and manage them in a secure way.
