  • Using Caching in Microservices Architectures: Session I
    Using Caching in Microservices Architectures: Session I Jagdish Mirani is a Product Marketing Manager in charge of Pivotal’s in-memory products Recorded: Apr 26 2017 54 mins
    In this 60 minute webinar, we will cover the key areas of consideration for data layer decisions in a microservices architecture, and how a caching layer, satisfies these requirements. You’ll walk away from this webinar with a better understanding of the following concepts:

    - How microservices are easy to scale up and down, so both the service layer and the data layer need to support this elasticity.
    - Why microservices simplify and accelerate the software delivery lifecycle by splitting up effort into smaller isolated pieces that autonomous teams can work on independently. Event-driven systems promote autonomy.
    - Where microservices can be distributed across availability zones and data centers for addressing performance and availability requirements. Similarly, the data layer should support this distribution of workload.
    - How microservices can be part of an evolution that includes your legacy applications. Similarly, the data layer must accommodate this graceful on-ramp to microservices.

    Why AR/VR Will Disrupt Productivity and Collaboration in the Enterprise John Nall, CEO, Appzion Recorded: Apr 26 2017 60 mins
    Enterprise is the best starting or entry point for AR and VR because the pain points are high, the dollars are there to make a strong ROI case for use, and the wearable form factor is much less of an issue. AR and VR technologies will be instrumental in closing the skill gap that is responsible for the shortage of skilled manufacturing workers. We are optimistic that industrial productivity will grow and that this will ultimately translate into higher wages because AR and VR will allow more workers to do high-skill jobs, and improve their performance.

  • Going Beyond His/tory: The Female Storytellers Shaping Immersive Tech
    Going Beyond His/tory: The Female Storytellers Shaping Immersive Tech Luciana Carvalho, VR Evangelist Recorded: Apr 25 2017 48 mins
    Humans have shared gathered around and communicated through stories throughout history. Text, pictures, images and videos have sought to capture our imagination, or portray the non-fictional in a relatable way. Now, as we move beyond the 2D flat screen to new ways of interacting/communicating with the world — virtual and augmented reality, for example — we begin to see the power of immersion in storytelling, and the impact it has, beyond anything we have ever seen, on those in the receiving end. Arguably, the ultimate empathy machine.

    As we shape the next 'Information Age', and given the state of the world today, never before have we been in more need of putting ourselves in other people’s shoes, and empowering diverse and inclusive voices worldwide. Never before have we seen more women jump at the opportunity to lead and make content that is all-encompassing, that touches and inspires, and that aims to build bridges not walls. Here is their story.

    Learner, maker, systems thinker, innovator and tech evangelist, Luciana splits her time between growing the Realities Centre London — a new innovation space, incubator and academy for B2B/enterprise VR, AR, MR and AI — and Unfold UK, promoting women/diversity in future in the UK. Passionate about VR and tech for good, she carries ongoing research on the possibilities and challenges immersive tech presents as re neuroscience, empathy and female empowerment.

    She was elected one of Code First Girls ‘25 Ones to Watch’, 'Top 5 Female Role Models in the Tech Industry', and Virtual Perceptions' 'Heroes of VR' in 2016.

    But software audits don’t need to be scary if you’re armed with the right information and insight.

    The key is identifying and addressing the key points of failure in a Microsoft software audit:

    •SQL connections
    •SQL virtualization
    •Managing Office editions
    •Self-Provisioning of Office 365
    •Azure sprawl

    Machine Learning and Malware: What You Need to Know Robert Leong, Dir, Prod Mgmt., McAfee Labs; Raf Los, Optiv; Dr. Paulo Shakarian; Brandon Dunlap (Moderator) Apr 27 2017 5:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    The seismic jolt in the Threat Landscape caused by the success of threats like ransomware combined with the geometric rise of so-called zero-day malware (i.e. malware for which no AV signature defenses exist) has given rise to all manner of innovation in the Cybersecurity industry. But a lot of what is being said and presented in the market is really confusing and that’s a problem for practitioners. One of the most-frequently-used phrases in security today is “Machine Learning” or “Math-Based” and “Artificial Intelligence” or “AI”. These phrases are entering the security conversation to describe capabilities, approaches, and strategies, but in reality, they are confusing a great many people. Which begs the question: “What on Earth does it mean?” and “How can Machine Learning be used in Enterprise Security?” Join McAfee and (ISC)2 on April 27, 2017 at 1:00PM Eastern as we clear the confusion, explore the answers to these questions and discuss what this means for dealing with threats.

  • Virtual Load Balancer Challenges and How to Conquer Them
    Virtual Load Balancer Challenges and How to Conquer Them Ashish Shah May 2 2017 5:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    While virtual appliances for load balancing, long thought of as the answer for software-driven infrastructure, have existed since the advent of virtualization, they inherit most of the architectural challenges of legacy solutions, including limited scalability, lack of central management and orchestration, and performance limitations. Instead, what is needed is an application delivery architecture based on software-defined principles that logically separates the control plane from the data plane delivering the application services.

    Join us for this 30 minute webinar with Q&A to learn how to overcome the challenges of using virtual load balancers.

  • Tech Talk: WAN Op on Tap
    Tech Talk: WAN Op on Tap Derek Granath and Chris Rogers May 3 2017 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    This webinar will clear up a common misconception that SD-WANs obsolete the need for WAN optimization. All the bandwidth in the world doesn’t diminish physical distance and therefore the latency across long distances. WAN opt is all about improving application performance over distance and transporting large data sets efficiently. No longer is it necessary to have WAN opt deployed across the entire network – just selectively where and when you need it.
  • Audits of 1000 Apps: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly of Open Source Use
    Audits of 1000 Apps: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly of Open Source Use Mike Pittenger, VP Security Strategy, Black Duck Software May 4 2017 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Open source components are the foundation of today’s applications. Ineffective security and management of open source is pervasive.
    That stark contrast marks Black Duck’s recently released 2017 Open Source Security and Risk Analysis (OSSRA), which is based on code audits of more than 1000 applications. Not surprisingly, 97% of the audited applications contained open source. Disturbingly, 67% of the applications contained known open source vulnerabilities.
    In this webinar, Black Duck VP of Security Strategy Mike Pittenger will review the audit findings in depth and discuss strategies companies can use to minimize open source security risk while maximizing the economic and productivity value open source provides.
  • What you can't see will hurt you: Track Cloud App usage & reduce overspend
    What you can't see will hurt you: Track Cloud App usage & reduce overspend Tim Jesser and Forrester Principal Analyst, Charles Betz May 4 2017 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Better agility, faster deployment and lower IT resource demands.  With 87% of enterprises using use cloud applications the value is clear.  But along with benefits of infrastructure and maintenance cost savings comes significant financial risks.  SaaS applications such as O365 can drive overspend in the form of over-provisioning of user accounts, excessive account entitlement and duplication of on-premises licenses. 

    The burden on IT leaders becomes even greater as an increasing amount of technology spend decisions are owned by business units.  Snow Software will show how to create complete visibility of application usage and spend across all deployment platforms regardless of technology spend ownership.  Learn the critical yet simple steps you can take to track cloud application usage and reduce financial risks.
  • Briefings Part 3: The Future of BYOD Security
    Briefings Part 3: The Future of BYOD Security Amish Kohli, Solutions Engineer, Bitglass; Brandon Dunlap, Moderator May 4 2017 5:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Enabling secure BYOD has long been a challenge for IT. Attempts to secure these devices with agents and device management tools like MDM have been met with widespread employee concerns about privacy and usability, and as a result, organizations see low rates of adoption. Requiring that employees use these install these cumbersome device management tools or access data solely from managed devices are solutions fraught with issues. Employees need the flexibility to work from any device, anywhere. Join Bitglass and (ISC)2 for the 3rd part of our 3-part Briefings series on May 4, 2017 at 1:00PM Eastern where n this we discuss the trends driving growth in demand for BYOD, the drawbacks of MDM, and some of alternative solutions used to secure employee-owned devices without agents.

  • Beyond 2FA: The Smart Way to Manage Cloud Access
    Beyond 2FA: The Smart Way to Manage Cloud Access Mor Ahuvia, Authentication Product Marketing at Gemalto May 9 2017 3:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Cloud apps are being pulled into the enterprise hand-over-fist, with 93% of organizations using cloud-based IT services. But the efficiencies and convenience offered by cloud apps come at a price. While organizations have long been applying two-factor authentication to their network, VPN and email portals, they have failed to extend that same level of security to cloud-based applications, such as Office 365, AWS and Salesforce.

    But the need for stronger cloud access security is only part of the story. Businesses looking to scale and increase their cloud adoption find there are other issues to contend with. Visibility into cloud access events and regulatory compliance become challenging to maintain. Helpdesk staff are burdened with password resets, and the most important link in the chain—users—are plagued with password fatigue.

    This webinar explains:
    •Challenges to greater cloud adoption in the enterprise
    •What cloud access management is
    •How strong authentication complements access management
    •Why cloud access management is critical to an organization’s cloud adoption strategy
