  • What To Ask Your Vendor on Enterprise SD-WAN Capabilities What To Ask Your Vendor on Enterprise SD-WAN Capabilities Ramesh Prabagaran, VP Product Management, Viptela Recorded: Jan 20 2017 46 mins
    What are the absolute essential requirements in an SD-WAN solution? Although Gartner has defined the four key requirements for SD-WAN (see below), there are some more critical features required to meet the enterprise-grade capabilities. For example, network segmentation for different kinds of applications is a widely deployed feature across all major industries, primarily to isolate critical applications and to reduce the attack surface during vulnerabilities.

    This webinar will more broadly cover the essential enterprise SD-WAN features and how they translate to common deployment scenarios in different industries. These features include:

    - Overlay capability over MPLS, Broadband and LTE
    - Unified and centralized management of all WAN infrastructure
    - Network segmentation with per-segment topologies
    - Predictable Application SLA with centralized policies and real-time traffic steering
    - Mature routing capabilities with BGP, OSPF, VRRP, and IGMP
    - Unified and centralized management of all WAN infrastructure
    - Robust-zero trust WAN security including authentication, encryptions, segmentation and service chaining

    As a background, here are Gartner’s four key requirements for SD-WAN:
    - SD-WAN solutions provide a lightweight replacement for traditional WAN routers, and are agnostic to WAN transport technologies (that is, they support MPLS, Internet, Long Term Evolution [LTE], etc.).
    - Based on business and/or application policies, SD-WAN solutions allow for load sharing of traffic across multiple WAN connections in an efficient and dynamic fashion.
    - SD-WAN solutions dramatically simplify the complexity associated with management, configuration and orchestration of WANs.
    - SD-WAN solutions must provide secure VPNs, and have the ability to integrate additional network services and offload Internet-destined traffic closer to the edge of the network.

  • The Future of Machine-Based Penetration Testing The Future of Machine-Based Penetration Testing Sion Retzkin - Cronus Cyber Technologies Feb 7 2017 2:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    The majority of internal and external cyber-attacks begin with exploiting vulnerabilities in the network and targeted applications. Over 99% of actual attacks exploit known vulnerabilities listed as known Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVEs). The traditional defence is to probe the system using manual or automatic vulnerability scanning techniques; but this produces a lot of redundant and irrelevant information that does not shed any light as to whether a hacker can use the vulnerability to reach a critical asset. The only solution today is human penetration testing, but infrequent testing does not reflect the network's dynamic nature, especially in today's virtual and cloud based environments.
    A fresh approach to support manual penetration testing and enhance cyber resilience is to continuously and automatically test the network, applications and databases by using penetration testing techniques to expose vulnerabilities, establish complex attack path scenarios in real time and provide security and business insights to act on.
    This presentation will look at the technology and role of machine-based penetration testing.

  • Is Your Storage Ready for Disaster? Is Your Storage Ready for Disaster? W. Curtis Preston Feb 22 2017 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    The recovery expectations of users and organizations is changing and their tolerance for downtime is lower than ever. IT professionals can no longer rely on the traditional backup and recovery process to meet these new requirements. Primary storage needs to do more, and simple LUN-based replication is not going to get the job done. Instead data centers need to look for primary storage that has advanced replication capabilities and can integrate with multiple hypervisors and existing data protection solutions to create a holistic disaster recovery strategy.

  • Cómo recuperar el control de sus datos móviles Cómo recuperar el control de sus datos móviles David Sanz - EMEA Endpoint & Mobile Competency Lead Feb 24 2017 11:30 am UTC 60 mins
    Los puestos de trabajo y los datos móviles son habitualmente los aspectos más olvidados en la estrategia de gestión de datos empresarial. Sin embargo, la información presente en ordenadores portátiles, de escritorio y dispositivos móviles es uno de los activos de mayor valor para la organización, pese a que potencialmente se encuentra en máximo riesgo. De acuerdo con IDC hay alrededor de 1.300 millones de trabajadores móviles hoy en día. Sin embargo, tan solo la mitad de las empresas utiliza algún tipo de backup para puestos de trabajo. Esto significa que el volumen de datos móviles en peligro es más que significativo.

    Con una fuerza de trabajo móvil cada vez mayor que está creando información crítica fuera del dominio tradicional del departamento de TI, una demanda creciente de acceso a la información desde cualquier momento y lugar, y el coste potencial y el riesgo asociados al cumplimiento de la normativa y al eDiscovery, la necesidad de proteger el puesto de trabajo y de aportar soluciones de trabajo colaborativo está clara y se encuentra en un punto de inflexión crucial.

    La suma de estos factores está incrementando el miedo ante la falta de seguridad, ya que los trabajadores optan por utilizar soluciones de compartición y sincronización de archivos dudosas o por realizar backup de forma manual en discos duros externos para proteger sus datos. Esto supone un riesgo, ya que se puede perder fácilmente la información almacenada en un USB o en sitios públicos inseguros.

    Acompáñenos en este webinar, donde analizaremos:
    -Cómo recuperar el control sobre lo que ocurre en los dispositivos móviles de los trabajadores
    -Cómo mitigar los riesgos asociados con los ataques cada vez más frecuentes de ransomware
    -Ayudar a sus usuarios a ser más productivos y, al mismo tiempo, evitar los riesgos de las soluciones de consumo de compartición y sincronización de archivos.
  • Key Steps to Implement & Maintain PCI DSS Compliance in 2017 Key Steps to Implement & Maintain PCI DSS Compliance in 2017 Dr Branden Williams, HPE Security - Data Security Feb 28 2017 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    In today’s digital landscape, it’s much easier for criminals to access sensitive payment card data, not only gaining direct access to a consumer’s available funds, but also their personal identity. With cyber attacks becoming much more advanced, the PCI DSS standard has been forced to adapt to address these new threats.

    However, PCI compliance is something that any organization can successfully achieve. The requirements of PCI DSS are clear, but it takes work to accomplish compliance across an organization. On this webinar our panel will discuss some best practices, and solutions that provides your business with an easy, cost effective and highly automated way to achieve compliance with PCI DSS in 2017.
