  • Data Center Colocation: Is it the Right Approach for the Enterprise? Data Center Colocation: Is it the Right Approach for the Enterprise? Kelly Morgan - 451 Research, Jim Leach- RagingWire, Bill VanCuren- NCR Recorded: Oct 21 2016 36 mins
    Is Data Center Colocation the Right Approach for the Enterprise? A 451 Conversation with the CIO of NCR.

    Large enterprises have traditionally owned and operated their own data centers. But the capital and personnel requirements of owning and operating your own data centers as well as the strategic distraction, are causing many enterprises to consider replacing their data centers with a mix of colocation and cloud computing.

    In this webinar, Kelly Morgan, Vice President at 451 Research and one of the leading authorities on the economics and finances of the data center and hosting industries, will present the key considerations for enterprises as they evaluate colocation. Then, William VanCuren, Chief Information Officer at NCR, will join Kelly for a discussion on NCR’s hybrid cloud strategy, including their convergence of public cloud and colocation to support the enterprise
  • Gen 4 Attacks: Web Behavior Analytics to Protect Websites Gen 4 Attacks: Web Behavior Analytics to Protect Websites Eric Ogren, Senior Analyst at 451 Research, & Omri Iluz, CEO of PerimeterX Recorded: Oct 20 2016 58 mins
    Join Eric Ogren, Senior Security Analyst at 451 Research, and Omri Iluz, CEO of PerimeterX, as they discuss how your best defense against automated website attacks rests with an approach founded on analyzing the behavior of humans and bots. 451 Research has talked with organizations that have saved millions in fraudulent transactions after embracing a behavioral analysis approach to security.

    Sophisticated attackers are commercially motivated, using automated attacks to inflict damage. By abusing encoded business logic, they utilize real browsers to take over accounts, perform fraudulent purchases and scrape intellectual property, without triggering traditional security mechanisms. Through advanced techniques of cloaking from the world of malware, they disguise their nefarious intentions. Signature-based bot detection and WAFs are blind to these new threats, leaving your organization’s website defenseless.

    In this webinar you will learn:

    •How bots have evolved from simple scripts to sophisticated Man-in-the-Browser attacks
    •How to protect against advanced modern attacks utilizing real-user browsers
    •How to detect malicious behavior with Web Behavior Analytics (WBA) technologies
    •Real-world attacks and how organizations use behavioral analysis to prevent them
    •How to future-proof your business and your infrastructure

  • IT Security & Privacy Governance in the Cloud IT Security & Privacy Governance in the Cloud Moderated by Rebecca Herold, The Privacy Professor; Jacqueline Cooney, BAH, Daniel Catteddu, CSA, Chris Griffith from HPE Recorded: Oct 18 2016 61 mins
    After multiple newsworthy data breaches in recent times, IT security and privacy governance has gained importance across the globe. Most organizations have established security and compliance policies and procedures to protect their intellectual property and corporate assets, especially in the IT space. As companies transition their applications and data to the cloud, it is critical for them to maintain, or preferably surpass, the level of security they had in their traditional IT environment. Leaders are also responsible for defining policies to address privacy concerns and raise awareness of data protection within their organization, and for ensuring that their cloud providers adhere to the defined privacy policies. Failure to ensure IT Security when using cloud services could ultimately result in higher costs and potential loss of business, thus eliminating any of the potential benefits of the cloud.

    While security and privacy are related, they are also distinct. IT security is primarily concerned with defending against attacks, not all of which are aimed at stealing data, while privacy is specifically related to personal data held by an organization, which may be endangered by negligence or software bugs, not necessarily by malevolent persons. On this webinar our panel of experts will address some of the key distinctions, and discuss some best practices for managing IT security and implementing privacy governance for the cloud.

  • Database as a Service: What should you consider before migrating to the cloud? Database as a Service: What should you consider before migrating to the cloud? Matt Aslett - 451 Research Director, Data Platforms and Analytics Recorded: Oct 11 2016 48 mins
    Database-as-a-service offers multiple potential benefits, including lower database licensing and infrastructure costs, faster time to application development, and reduced administration overheads. These benefits are most likely to be experienced by database administrators and architects, although senior decision-makers and business users also stand to gain from having on-demand access to database services, rather than waiting for databases to be configured and deployed on dedicated physical or virtual server infrastructure.

    While 451 Research anticipates growing adoption of database-as-a-service (DBaaS), adoption is currently nascent compared with other cloud services, as enterprises look to make the most of their investments in on-premises database deployments, and also to identify the most appropriate workloads for transition or migration to DBaaS. This webinar explores the factors shaping those adoption trends, including the potential benefits and challenges to DBaaS adoption, the economics of the cloud as they relate to database workloads, and adoption lifecycles.

    Based on research involving enterprises currently deploying database workloads in the cloud, the webinar will:

    • Highlight the trends driving enterprises to move database workloads to the cloud
    • Identify the challenges causing enterprises to be hesitant about migrating database workloads to the cloud
    • Identify the use-cases that are prime candidates for migrating database workloads to the cloud
    • Highlight the critical success factors for database migration to the cloud

  • Multi-Cloud Management - How to effectively manage multiple cloud environments Multi-Cloud Management - How to effectively manage multiple cloud environments Brent Brightwell, SVP Strategy, DoubleHorn Recorded: Oct 5 2016 31 mins
    The digitization of businesses and the way that IT supports the needs of these businesses has changed significantly over time. Today, different IT workloads can be deployed on different types of cloud services, depending upon the business requirements. As a result, many IT departments are moving their infrastructure to the cloud and multi-cloud virtual environments. A multi-cloud management platform allows enterprises to manage workloads and applications across all cloud deployment models, including public, private, and hybrid. Using the right platform for this workload enables enterprises to drive favorable business results. The multi-cloud approach facilitates transition to the IT-as-a-Service (ITaaS) model, where IT departments act as service brokers and support organizations in optimizing their IT infrastructure consumption. In this webinar, we'll discuss the key features of a multi-cloud management platform and also discuss the benefits, challenges, and opportunities in the existing market.

    Industry analysts believe that “eighty-nine percent of companies plan to compete primarily on the basis of the customer experience.” To fulfill this vision in the manufacturing industry, the role of master data management (MDM) has been strategically evolving. Now, in addition to traditional uses, MDM is helping manufacturers tackle an array of business challenges like cross-sell and upsell, vendor management, or targeted marketing campaigns. Early adopters have seen significant business advantages by using MDM to build a 360-degree view of customers across products, regions and lines of business. In fact, with a next-generation view of customers and the products they own, one $60 billion manufacturing company improved cross-sell and upsell success by five percent.

    Improving the efficiency of existing processes is critical for enterprises, and one of the first proof points of many big data projects. In the long-term enterprises may be looking for big data to generate revenue from new projects and applications, but proving the potential benefits by improving the efficiency of existing business processes – such as optimizing supply chains, or accelerating compliance – is a good place to start. Additionally, operating more efficiently at lower cost and with lower risk enables an organization to redirect budget towards driving growth.

    The sad truth is that Invaders are trying to breach your defenses every day. With five out of every six large organizations being targeted by advanced attackers, protecting your data is a smart way to keep you from becoming tomorrow’s headline.

    So what does data protection mean? A comprehensive approach allows the right people to access the right data, anywhere, by controlling access, monitoring its flow, and keeping it out of the wrong hands.

    We will explain how Symantec technology addresses this approach and how you will benefit from:

    •Grant and ensure access only for authorized users with strong, multi-factor authentication, on any device, including BYOD.
    •Watching over data wherever it lives—in the cloud, on premise, in motion, and at rest.

  • Data Protection: Going Beyond Encryption and Residency Data Protection: Going Beyond Encryption and Residency Josh Goldfarb, VP, CTO - Emerging Technologies, FireEye & Roger Francis, Senior Consultant - Mandiant a FireEye Company Nov 9 2016 2:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    When many people think about data protection, they tend to think about a few different things. Encrypting data at rest. Encrypting data in transit. Data residency requirements. Unfortunately, attackers do not abide by these best practices and regulations. When attackers gain access to sensitive, confidential, and proprietary information, that data often ends up in places it shouldn’t. Monitoring for and quickly containing and remediating theft of critical data is an oft-overlooked but no less important piece of the data protection puzzle.

  • Evolving an Enterprise Risk Management Program Evolving an Enterprise Risk Management Program Colin Whittaker, Russell McGuire, Riskonnect; Yo Delmar, MetricStream; Albert Biketi, HPE; and Marshall Toburen, RSA Nov 17 2016 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Organizations are suffering from volatility across all risk types, and in every organization, there are a multitude of applications and devices with threats and vulnerabilities. Every process, function and system has certain risks and compliance requirements, and senior management are being pressured to improve enterprise risk management capabilities.

    An organization’s enterprise risk management (ERM) program can be a powerful management tool for achieving strategic and operational objectives, but it can be difficult to maintain and grow over time. If an ERM program is not moving forward it stagnates, so executives need to implement a program that evolves with the times. Implementation has its challenges but there are a range of responses that can be effective for each ERM program challenge. In this webinar our experts discuss these responses and address some of the ways to implement an evolving GRC program that gets boardroom backing.

    Growing exposure to IT risks has made organizations across industries volatile. Every process, function and system has multitude of applications and devices with threats and vulnerabilities which cause significant impact. Recent IT vendor incidents like data and security beaches, violation of privacy guidelines, which have caused substantial fines & penalties, highlight that IT vendor risks are business risks and require focus from the leadership.

    In this webinar, panelists will discuss how organizations can strengthen IT vendor management in the current landscape and improve business performance

    Key takeaways :

    Causes of Vendor Risk incidents and their impact on enterprises
