  • Augmented & Mixed Reality: Who is Watching Whom?
    Augmented & Mixed Reality: Who is Watching Whom? Monique J. Morrow, CTO, Chief Technology Strategist, President & Co-Founder, Humanized Internet Recorded: Apr 25 2017 43 mins
    A mixed-reality world driven by intelligent systems would have to be observing behavior and sensing physical phenomena continuously in order to provide individuals with appropriate content. Is that a sensible trade-off or a dance with the devil?

    Does the sensing possible with these technologies allow for ways to level the playing field or does it exacerbate existing power inequities? If the AI-enabled world of the future is monetized with personal data, then surveillance might well be baked into the system, but the ethical issues we see today will only be amplified in an immersive environment.

    Join this discussion with Monique Morrow, CTO & Chief Technology Strategist, President & Co-Founder of the Humanized Internet, for an in-depth look at what a true MR/AR/VR world means.

  • CEO PoV: Take Control of your Cloud Application Experience
    CEO PoV: Take Control of your Cloud Application Experience Praveen Akkiraju, CEO, Viptela Recorded: Apr 20 2017 39 mins
    Enterprises are undergoing a revolution in their infrastructure as the application world is being transformed by cloud technologies. Today your applications can be located in the data center, through IaaS, or in a SaaS cloud. Similarly, users are transforming with mobility; no longer are they tied to one location. Enterprises want to solve the problem of connecting users to their applications in a consistent and secure manner.

    The overarching issue is the connectivity between these two worlds as we're stuck in two-decades old technology. Enterprises are therefore challenged with the requirement to transform their infrastructure while integrating underlying legacy technologies, and for the user to access their applications while maintaining policy and security framework.

    Join our CEO as he discusses how IT infrastructure is being transformed during the era of cloud technologies, and how Enterprises across a number of industries can embrace the network revolution.

  • IP-Based Object Drives Now Have a Management Standard
    IP-Based Object Drives Now Have a Management Standard Erik Riedel, Dell EMC, Enrico Signoretti, OpenIO, David Slik, NetApp, Alex McDonald, NetApp Recorded: Apr 20 2017 59 mins
    The growing popularity of object-based storage has resulted in the development of Ethernet-connected storage devices, herein referred to as IP-Based Drives and subsystems supporting object interfaces and in some cases the ability to run localized applications.
    Typical scale-out storage nodes consist of relatively inexpensive enclosures with IP network connectivity, CPU, Memory and Direct Attached Storage (DAS). While inexpensive to deploy, these solutions become harder to manage over time.
    To ease management of these drives, SNIA has approved the release of the IP-Based Drive Management Specification. In this webcast, you’ll hear from authors of the specification who’ll discuss:

    • Major Components of the IP Based Drive Management Standard
    • How the standard leverages the DMTF Redfish management standard to manage Kinetic and other IP-Based Drives
    • Providing a standard management interface for drives that are part of JBOD or JBOF enclosures

    This standard allows drive management to scale to datacenters and beyond, enabling automation and Software Defined Datacenters. Join this webcast on April 20th to learn more.

    Intelligent Threat Response and Risk Reduction for Today's Mobile Workplace Kevin Beaver, Information Security Consultant, Principle Logic & Jamie Chiu, Senior Mgr, Intel Security & Trent Fierro, Aruba Apr 27 2017 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Network security is no longer about firewalls and related perimeter protection. It extends all the way to endpoints and the information assets they process and store. At any given time, do you really know what’s on your network, how they got there, and if they might be creating quantifiable business risks? With the complexity of today’s wired and wireless networks, this is becoming an increasingly-difficult question to answer.

    Join information security veteran and writer of 12 books including the highly-popular Hacking For Dummies, Kevin Beaver, along with experts from Aruba and Intel for a discussion on the technical and operational security concerns impacting modern networks. You’ll hear real-world stories and obtain practical insight into what it takes to have a resilient environment that can withstand today’s threats and risks.

  • How to “Future Proof” Data Protection for Organizational Resilience
    How to “Future Proof” Data Protection for Organizational Resilience Storage Switzerland, Carbonite Apr 27 2017 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Users expectations of IT's ability to return mission critical applications to production are higher than ever. These expectations are leading IT to abandon many of their backup and recovery solutions to try new, unproven solutions that may or may not solve the problem. In either case, the organization wasted its investment in the first solution for the unknown potential of a new solution. User expectations are certain to get higher, so this cycle will likely repeat itself. IT needs a new strategy, one that will meet the current expectations of users and pave the way for true organizational resilience.
  • RANSOMWARE: Your Money or Your Data Protecting the Public Sector from Ransomware
    RANSOMWARE: Your Money or Your Data Protecting the Public Sector from Ransomware Bil Harmer, Strategist, Office of the CISO, Zscaler Apr 27 2017 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Cyber extortion is on the rise, and the public sector is particularly vulnerable. A study conducted by a leading cybersecurity threat management firm reported that state and local government networks are twice as likely as their commercial counterparts to be infected with either ransomware or malware.
    Why are ransomware perpetrators increasingly setting their sights on the public sector? First, many agencies and public institutions rely on legacy systems that are challenged to meet all of today’s cybersecurity threats. Second, the proliferation of devices and technology platforms, including smartphones, tablets and mobile apps, are giving hackers more points of entry into public sector networks. Are you prepared for such an attack?

    Join Bil Harmer, Strategist, Office of the CISO, Zscaler Inc., for a compelling webcast highlighting how ransomware can impact your organization and steps you can take to secure your network and systems.

    Bil will also cover:

    - How ransomware has evolved
    - Lessons learned from recent attacks
    - Why cloud sandboxing is so important
    - Tips for mitigating ransomware

  • Machine Learning: The what, how, and why you need it now
    Machine Learning: The what, how, and why you need it now Stewart Rogers, Dir. of Marketing Technology, VentureBeat Apr 27 2017 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    The short answer is that machine learning is the enemy of a post-truth world: Set loose on large data sets, it’s used to uncover patterns and deliver key insights that help predict how things will unfold in the future. The long answer is that from the transformation of forecasting and predictive analytics to the development of self-driving cars to Microsoft working to prevent blindness in children, machine learning has quickly become the kind of technology that transforms the world, from impactful business use cases to powerful social change.

    McKinsey’s 2016 data and analytics study found 120 potential machine learning applications in 12 industries—and the evolution is accelerating. Join our latest VB Live interactive event for a deep dive into how to measure, understand, and mobilize the data that matters the most for your business using machine learning.
