  • Microservices and Containers: A Marriage Made in Heaven
    Microservices and Containers: A Marriage Made in Heaven Parminder Kocher, Director of Engineering, Cisco Networking Academy, Cisco Systems Recorded: Apr 19 2018 51 mins
    Microservices aren’t for every organization, but if you know what to expect and prepare accordingly—and if you pair them with Docker containers—they can bring unprecedented agility and scalability to application development and deployment, especially in large, complex projects where speed is crucial and small errors can be disastrous.

    In this high-level presentation geared toward executives and other decision-makers, Parminder Kocher, author of the newly published book, Microservices and Containers, will break down these potentially game-changing technologies. First, are they right for you? Making the switch to microservices is a large undertaking with a steep learning curve, both operationally and culturally, so it's crucial to assess the risks before taking the plunge. Second, what should you expect if and when you decide to move forward with the shift? Kocher draws from his own personal experience to help you with the transition. By the end of the presentation, you should have a good idea how microservices—especially when paired with Docker containers—can bring unprecedented agility and scalability to application development and deployment, especially in large, complex projects where time to market and scalability are paramount.

  • The Real Cost of Data Breaches
    The Real Cost of Data Breaches Rob van der Ende, Vice President, Asia Pacific & Japan Mandiant Consulting Services | FireEye Apr 25 2018 2:00 am UTC 60 mins
    The annual Cost of Data Breach study from the Ponemon Institute indicates a small year-over-year decline, but the average size and scope of data breaches continues to increase. Every year, Mandiant investigates more cyber incidents and we believe that the real cost of a data breach to an organization can be much higher than what is reported. The pending implementation of GDPR and its penalties for non-compliance, will also impact the costs to organizations.

    During this session we will share some insights with you into the damage attackers typically cause and what mitigating steps you can take to minimize the impact and cost of a data breach.
  • Métadonnées: Droit à l’essentiel
    Métadonnées: Droit à l’essentiel Pascal Beurel, Ingénieur principal, Opérations de sécurité de Gigamon Apr 25 2018 8:30 am UTC 45 mins
    Veuillez nous rejoindre afin que l'expert sécurité de Gigamon, Pascal Beurel, vous révèle la raison pour laquelle les métadonnées réseau constituent un outil ultime ! Alors que les entreprises s'efforcent de suivre le rythme de la croissance du trafic en augmentant la vitesse des réseaux, elles sont en voie de perdre le combat face au cybercrime. Pourquoi ? La raison en est que les outils sont limités quant au volume de trafic qu'ils peuvent traiter de façon intelligente, tout en étant en charge de fonctions de plus en plus sophistiquées pour combattre des cyber-attaques toujours plus avancées et persistantes.

    En conséquence, de nombreuses applications de sécurité s'avèreront inefficaces dans un avenir proche.

    Entrez dans le monde des métadonnées, le nouveau super-pouvoir en matière de sécurité. En fournissant aux outils de sécurité des aperçus synthétiques des données circulant à travers les réseaux, ils peuvent devenir un outil puissant pour les entreprises cherchant à séparer les signaux utiles du bruit, à réduire le délai de détection des menaces, tout en améliorant l'efficacité générale de la sécurité.

    Les participants apprendront :
    - Comment la sécurité réseau s'appuie de façon croissante sur le contexte et l'intention.
    - La raison pour laquelle les métadonnées réseau deviendront l'approche la plus simple et la plus compréhensible pour les analyses de sécurité.
    - Comment la visibilité réseau sert de source unique d'informations concernant les applications, les utilisateurs et les terminaux.

  • Total Performance Management (TPM) for Hadoop and Spark
    Total Performance Management (TPM) for Hadoop and Spark Alex Pierce Apr 25 2018 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Pepperdata makes Hadoop+YARN based systems better by providing total performance management (TPM) for big data. Total performance management is the combination of application performance management (APM) and operations performance management (OPM) in a single package so developers and operators can rely on the same underlying information to build and operate highly performant big data applications in multi-tenant clusters.

    For developers, the Application Spotlight self-service APM portal surfaces applications that need attention from a performance perspective. For these applications, Application Spotlight provides precise recommendations to improve performance, automatically identifies bottlenecks and makes it easy to analyze root cause of errors and failures.

    For operators, the Cluster Analyzer OPM solution makes it easy to identify applications and users causing issues on the platform, proactively alert on those issues, and improve cluster performance. We also have roll up reports for things like chargeback and capacity planning. The Capacity Optimizer add-on module automatically increases cluster throughput 30-50% by addressing some of the inefficiencies of how YARN does resource management today.

    Join us for this webinar presented by Alex Pierce and learn how we can bring performance management to your applications and your cluster.
