Global enterprises have quietly funneled enormous amounts of data into Hadoop over the last several years. Hadoop has transformed the way organizations deal with big data. By making vast quantities of rich unstructured and semi-structured data quickly and cheaply accessible, Hadoop has opened up a host of analytic capabilities that were never possible before, to drive business value.
The challenges have revolved around operationalizing Hadoop to enterprise standards, and leveraging cloud-based Hadoop as a service (HaaS) options offering a vast array of analytics applications and processing capacity that would be impossible to deploy and maintain in-house.
This webcast will explain how solutions from IBM and WANdisco address these challenges by supporting:
- Continuous availability with guaranteed data consistency across Hadoop clusters any distance apart, both on-premises and in the cloud.
- Migration to cloud without downtime and hybrid cloud for burst-out processing and offsite disaster recovery.
- Flexibility to eliminate Hadoop distribution vendor lock-in and support migration to cloud without downtime or disruption.
- IBM's BigInsights in the cloud, and BigSQL, which allows you to run standard ANSI compliant SQL against your Hadoop data.

The results of the 2016 Cyber Resilience Survey confirm much of what we already suspected about the changing nature of the cyber threat and the way that cyber criminals have found new ways past corporate perimeter security. The increased difficulty of breaching perimeter security and the increased human resources available to cyber criminals has combined to produce a new point of attack. This is focused on the weakest link in the corporate security chain, which is now human beings rather than technology. The research shows clearly that phishing and social engineering is now the single top cause of cyber disruption, with over 60% of companies reporting being hit by such an incident over the past 12 months.
In this webinar, we will be looking at some of the findings from the study, and discussing what actions organizations can take to help improve their cyber resilience.

Businesses of all sizes are being attacked with new forms of threats trying to exploit recently discovered vulnerabilities in systems. With over 64 million unique pieces of Malware detected last year, hackers are making it more difficult for traditional anti-malware software to keep up. So how can organizations keep their networks safe? Security researcher and advocate, Brook Chelmo will briefly talk about Network Sandboxing and how to stop unknown threats. Brook will talk about ways to stop advanced persistent threats such as zero-day attacks and how you don’t have to be a security expert to stop them.
1.Learn how to stay safe from current and common attacks with advanced security technology
2.Learn how to practice good security hygiene
3.Understand how the threat landscape changes day to day with a hundreds of thousands of pieces of malware being authored daily.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is here to stay, and Gartner predicts there will be over 26 billion connected devices by 2020. This is driving an explosion of data which offers tremendous opportunity for organizations to gain business value, and Hadoop has emerged as the key component to make sense of the data and realize the maximum value. On the flip side the surge of new devices has increased potential for hackers to wreak havoc, and Hadoop has been described as the biggest cybercrime bait ever created.
Data security is a fundamental enabler of the IoT, and if it is not prioritised the business opportunity will be undermined, so protecting company data is more urgent than ever before. The risks are huge and Hadoop comes with few safeguards, leaving it to organizations to add an enterprise security layer. Securing multiple points of vulnerability is a major challenge, although when armed with good information and a few best practices, enterprise security leaders can ensure attackers will glean nothing from their attempts to breach Hadoop.
In this webinar we will discuss some steps to identify what needs protecting and apply the right techniques to protect it before you put Hadoop into production.
Endpoint security is a critical component in an organisation's security program and is needed to gain the visibility necessary to rapidly detect threats and contain them before criminals gain access to critical resources. But identifying custom malware and sophisticated attacker techniques requires an approach that combines existing security investments with modern defenses to protect critical corporate assets.
In this webinar you'll learn about:
•Why organisations of all sizes are increasingly targeted by criminals using advanced tactics and zero-day attacks designed to bypass traditional antivirus and remain stealthy on systems.
•What technologies typically make up modern threat protection solutions, from sandboxes, advanced machine-learning, to behavioral analytics systems to quickly identify infected endpoints and determine the scope of an attack
•Why endpoint visibility must be combined with network, web, and messaging security solutions

For many firms, particularly smaller and medium-sized ones, disaster recovery (DR) systems are seen as necessary but expensive and they are low on the list of priorities. This was certainly true in previous years, when backup/DR involved copying data regularly to a duplicate set of hardware, often in a second datacenter. However, with the growth of cloud and prevalence of colocation, there are ever more options for backup and DR, including DR-as-a-Service options that can be much more cost-effective.
However, IT decision makers have been primed to proceed with caution when it comes to the transition of services from inside their four walls to a cloud provider’s data center – and for good reason. The dizzying array of services offered today, and the perceived loss of control, weigh heavy on the minds of admins and leadership alike.
If disaster recovery is important to you, but you’re unsure how to navigate the litany of products and services available today, get started by understanding the basics, and learn about what your peers are doing to solve the real world problems of DR.
In this webinar we’ll take a look at 3 key considerations when doing DR planning:
1.How have cloud services changed the possibilities for RTO / RPO objectives?
2.Why are latency and carrier options important to DR planning?
3.Why (and how) are other organizations leveraging colocation as part of their overall DR strategy?
