  • Keeping up with High Speed MIgration in the Data Center
    Keeping up with High Speed MIgration in the Data Center Anthony Haupt, CommScope, Data Center Solutions Architect Recorded: Aug 17 2017 58 mins
    The volume of data streaming into the data center has been growing exponentially for decades. Bandwidth requirements are expected to continue growing 25 percent to 35 percent per year. At the same time, lower latency requirements continue to escalate. As a result, the design of services and applications—and how they are delivered—is rapidly evolving.

    Instead of a single dedicated server, information requests coming into the data center are now fulfilled by multiple servers cooperating in parallelThe traditional three-tier network is quickly being replaced by spine-and-leaf networks. As a result, the physical infrastructure must be able to support higher link speeds and greater fiber density while enabling quick and easy migration to new more demanding applications.

    This webinar will address:

    Solutions, support & decisions
    40G or 25G lanes?
    Preterminated vs field-terminated cables
    Modulation schemes
    Duplex or Parallel transmissions

    9 months until the GDPR deadline - are you completely up-to-speed?

    Our panel of data protection experts will be discussing the compliance considerations that you need to be assessing for May 2018 along with suggesting next steps from a cyber and general security standpoint.

    We'll also be asking YOU at what stage you're at in terms of your preparations via a series of interactive benchmarks as we go through the session to get a sense of where the security community is at in terms of preparations.

    -------------

    GDPR and its May 2018 deadline are now fully the minds of the vast majority of security professionals and with massive fines on the horizon for non-compliance, now is a better time than ever to get to grips with the legislation and ensure that your organisation is secure and compliant.

    It’s vital that your business has carried out the relevant preparations for compliance by then to make sure you don’t get whacked with a huge fine of up to £15m or 4% of your organisation’s global annual turnover.

    Not only are there potentially huge financial repercussions, but leaving your business open to attack and your customers at risk can cause serious reputational damage.

  • Not Your Grandmothers Network: What SDN Really Means
    Not Your Grandmothers Network: What SDN Really Means Eric Hanselman, Chief Analyst, 451 Research Recorded: Aug 16 2017 46 mins
    We’ve been working through the impacts of software-defined networking for a number of years. The technologies that have reached the market today have matured considerably from the early implementations and there are tremendous opportunities that SDN has created. What were once model T’s are now a lot faster and a bit more furious.

    Those changes have also opened some gaps in understanding and management that can create operational issues and security concerns. SD-WAN’s are seeing a lot of deployment and the orchestration possibilities of virtual networks in software-defined infrastructures (SDI) are powerful.

    This session will dig into the implications of all of this new performance and look at ways to ensure that your network doesn’t wind up in the ditch. There’s a lot of good work to be done, but it’s important to understand how to master all of that power.

  • How Avanan is Disrupting the Cloud Security Market
    How Avanan is Disrupting the Cloud Security Market Michael Landewe, Cofounder Avanan Recorded: Aug 10 2017 34 mins
    It's the Avanan Era of Security–most every security vendor has joined together on a single platform to solve the problem of security in the cloud. It is challenging every security assumption:

    • Single-silo solutions that solve one problem or only protect one SaaS;
    • Incompatible technology that makes it impossible to deploy true defense-in-depth;
    • Disruptive deployment that reroutes traffic;
    • Technology lock-in and vendor regret;

    The Avanan disruption in the marketplace is actually an elimination of the chaos of incompatible products that do not work together or don't integrate with the current enterprise security architecture.

    In this webinar, we will discuss how the Avanan platform changes the security equation for:

    • SaaS/IaaS: that can now offer cloud-native security,
    • Security Buyer: who can deploy and compare multiple solutions at once,
    • The Security Architect: who can integrate the cloud into the enterprise security workflow,
    • The CISO: who requires both security and compliance,
    • The CEO: who will not tolerate business disruption,
    • The User: who needs to just get work done.

    Soon, the Avanan Platform is the way that all cloud security technology will be compared, purchased, deployed and managed.

As physical infrastructure has become invisible to end-users, the role of service providers and channel partners has changed. Faced with public and private options, many firms are taking a XaaS approach, embracing the best of both private and public worlds - implementing hybrid architectures to deliver on-demand access to compute resources, capacity, and services, while also providing greater levels of control, security, and visibility of data and applications. In this webinar, Rory Duncan, Research Director with 451 Research will outline the opportunities for Service Providers and channel partners delivering cloud services, examining topics such as support, managed services, data protection and data sovereignty for facilitating cloud consumption.
  • Technical Deep Dive: Building a Modern Portal For Your Digital Workforce
    Technical Deep Dive: Building a Modern Portal For Your Digital Workforce Omar ElNaggar, Sr. Product Manager at Sapho, Natalie Lambert, VP of Marketing at Sapho Aug 23 2017 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Do your employees struggle to access and analyze information that sits across multiple systems? Do they delay completing tasks that require they login to yet another system? Employees are now pushing back against legacy systems – both on-premises and SaaS – and demanding more modern applications to complete their work. Unfortunately, you have spent millions of dollars on software and replacing them is not an option. The question: how do you meet employee expectations for more user-friendly tools without costly upgrades or throwing out your existing systems? Answer: a modern portal.

    Sapho’s modern portal surfaces personalized and relevant tasks and data to employees using micro apps. Sapho micro apps are built by IT on top of your existing systems using a simple micro app builder and pre-built templates. These micro apps – available on any device, intranet, or messenger app – provide employees with proactive notifications about interesting system data, actions that need to be completed, and changes in business data that require attention. With Sapho, employees can complete work faster and make better decisions, improving their overall productivity and effectiveness.

    In this webinar, we will show you how easy it is to build a modern portal that:

    - Connects to your existing systems with pre-built connectors for systems such as SAP, Oracle, Concur, Salesforce, or ServiceNow
    - Surfaces event-driven micro apps, that you can build in just 15 minutes to deliver simplified workflows and data access
    - Is accessible by employees from any device, intranet, or messenger allowing them to complete actions and review information from anywhere
  • Hunting Criminals with Hybrid Analytics, Semi-supervised Learning, & Feedback
    Hunting Criminals with Hybrid Analytics, Semi-supervised Learning, & Feedback David Talby, CTO, Atigeo Aug 23 2017 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Fraud detection is a classic adversarial analytics challenge: As soon as an automated system successfully learns to stop one scheme, fraudsters move on to attack another way. Each scheme requires looking for different signals (i.e. features) to catch; is relatively rare (one in millions for finance or e-commerce); and may take months to investigate a single case (in healthcare or tax, for example) – making quality training data scarce.

    This talk will cover a code walk-through, the key lessons learned while building such real-world software systems over the past few years. We'll look for fraud signals in public email datasets, using IPython and popular open-source libraries (scikit-learn, statsmodel, nltk, etc.) for data science and Apache Spark as the compute engine for scalable parallel processing.

    David will iteratively build a machine-learned hybrid model – combining features from different data sources and algorithmic approaches, to catch diverse aspects of suspect behavior:

    - Natural language processing: finding keywords in relevant context within unstructured text
    - Statistical NLP: sentiment analysis via supervised machine learning
    - Time series analysis: understanding daily/weekly cycles and changes in habitual behavior
    - Graph analysis: finding actions outside the usual or expected network of people
    - Heuristic rules: finding suspect actions based on past schemes or external datasets
    - Topic modeling: highlighting use of keywords outside an expected context
    - Anomaly detection: Fully unsupervised ranking of unusual behavior

    Apache Spark is used to run these models at scale – in batch mode for model training and with Spark Streaming for production use. We’ll discuss the data model, computation, and feedback workflows, as well as some tools and libraries built on top of the open-source components to enable faster experimentation, optimization, and productization of the models.

  • API Strategy and Design: From Prototyping to Results
    API Strategy and Design: From Prototyping to Results Geoff Anderson, CA API Management Product Manager and Strategist Aug 24 2017 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    This event is presented as part of the Modernizing Application Architecture with Microservices and APIs Virtual Summit Series. Join the event and live chat here: https://ca.6connex.com/event/APIM/login?lang=en-us

    Your API strategy is the backbone of how your application architecture comes to life. But with pressure to move fast often teams move on to coding and build a first working version to prove out the concept - incidentally investing too much time to be really willing to rethink the approach.

    There is another way... There's a whole world of API prototyping possibilities out there that allows for quick design and more importantly - enables teams to fail fast and get to the best solution that supports the strategy before investing in expensive coding time.

    Join this presentation to learn:

    - What makes a great API strategy
    - What's important for your API design and architecture
    - About API prototyping tools and approaches to help you get started
  • A Guide to Machine Learning Patterns and Data Visualizations
    A Guide to Machine Learning Patterns and Data Visualizations Dr. Umesh Hodeghatta Rao, CTO, Nu-Sigma Analytics Labs Aug 24 2017 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Data visualization must be intuitive in order for non-IT business leaders to see data patterns. Representing data in a graphical or pictorial format is easy, but constructing the data in the best and most logical way can be tricky.

    In this session, Umesh will talk about how to represent data simply to make quicker and better business decisions. He will walk through several data visualization techniques through business cases and examples. By the end of the session, you will not only know different data visualization techniques, but also have an understanding of circumstances under which each technique should be used and the best way to represent particular data sets for different business cases.
