  • Digital transformation from industry leaders' eyes: Harvard Business Review
    Digital transformation from industry leaders' eyes: Harvard Business Review
    Marty Wesley, Portfolio Marketing Manager, Red Hat Recorded: Dec 10 2018 25 mins
    Digital transformation may be a trite catch-all phrase for customers of varying sizes and challenges, but its implications are real. In a recent Harvard Business Review report (published Aug 2018), only 13% of respondents rated their ability to confront digital transformation as very effective. The vast majority of respondents understand its implications and relate to the importance of addressing technology, process, and culture in parallel, but struggle to implement strategies to address it, with culture as the leading inhibitor.

    In this session, we’ll discuss what industry leaders consider critical digital transformation capabilities, where organizations are struggling with adoption, what success looks like, and how many organizations are measuring the efficacy of efforts.

  • Demystifying Service Mesh: New Pattern or New Technology?
    Demystifying Service Mesh: New Pattern or New Technology?
    Marco Palladino, CTO & Co-Founder, Kong Recorded: Dec 7 2018 64 mins
    In a short period of time, service APIs went from being primarily an edge interface connecting developers outside of the organization with internal systems to the glue that binds those internal systems (microservices) into a functioning whole. Consequently, one of the unavoidable results of microservice-oriented architectures is that internal communication within the data center will increase. Service mesh arose as a potential solution to the challenges that arise from increased East-West traffic by providing a different framework for deploying existing technology.

    However, most of what service mesh introduces has been provided for many years by API Management products. Features such as observability, network error handling, health-checks, etc. are hallmarks of API management. These features don’t constitute anything novel in themselves, but as a pattern, service mesh introduces a new way of deploying those features within our architecture.

    Join Kong CTO and Co-Founder Marco Palladino as he walks attendees through the architectural changes that have led to the rise of service mesh and why legacy API management solutions born before the advent of containers can’t keep up.

    Webinar takeaways:

    - Service mesh as an architecture pattern, not a technology
    - The implications of adopting microservices-oriented architectures
    - Why traditional API management solutions can’t keep up

  • Post Perimeter Security 101 - Protecting a border-less world
    Post Perimeter Security 101 - Protecting a border-less world
    Aaron Cockerill, Chief Strategy Officer Recorded: Dec 7 2018 29 mins
    What is currently happening the world of security?

    Gartner predicts that 80% of worker tasks will take place on a mobile device by 2020.*

    The perimeter has disappeared. Employees work from anywhere in the world and their devices access corporate data from cloud services outside of traditional security perimeters. Securing data in the post-perimeter world requires organisations enforce their endpoints and establish continuous conditional access to data based on risk.

    During this webinar Aaron Cockrill, CSO at Lookout will talk about:

    - What does a post-perimeter world mean to enterprise security?
    - Why mobility changes the enterprise security paradigm?
    - How to protect data when accessed from outside the corporate perimeter?
    - What are the current and emerging threats?

  • Automatisierung mittles APIs
    Automatisierung mittles APIs
    Markus Grau, Principal Systems Engineer und Gabor Horvath, Implementation Engineer bei Pure Storage Recorded: Dec 7 2018 30 mins
    Immer häufiger werden Arbeiten an Storage Arrays nicht mehr über ein GUI oder CLI erledigt, sondern werden von Workflows oder Runbooks angestoßen. Ebenso werden Arrays in immer mehr 3rd Party Tools für z.B. Monitoring oder Backup integriert. Durch die offene HTTP REST API können diese Arbeiten sehr einfach und schnell erledigt werden. In diesem Webinar zeigen wir am lebenden Beispiel wie man Pure Arrays mittels APIs verwaltet und welche Integrationen von Partner (z.B. VMware, Veeam, Docker, Microsoft, etc.) diese bereits nutzen. Heute sind python, PowerShell, Ansible, Puppet, OpenStack, etc. keine Exoten mehr sondern ein Bestandteil der modernen IT, um Infrastructure As Code umzusetzen.
  • Three Pillars with Zero Answers: A New Observability Scorecard
    Three Pillars with Zero Answers: A New Observability Scorecard
    Ben Sigelman, CEO and Co-founder, LightStep Recorded: Dec 7 2018 58 mins
    Nobody denies the importance of observability in modern production software: with microservices adding scale, concurrency, and frequent deploys, it’s getting harder and harder to answer even basic questions about application behavior. The conventional wisdom has been that metrics, logging and tracing are “the three pillars” of observability, yet organizations check these boxes and still find themselves grasping at straws during emergencies. The problem is that metrics, logs, and traces are just data – if what we need is a car, all we’re talking about is the fuel. We will continue to disappoint ourselves until we reframe observability around two fundamental activities: (1) detection and (2) refinement.

    In this session, we summarize the contemporary observability dogma, then present a new observability scorecard for objectively reasoning about and assessing observability solutions for modern distributed systems.
  • Unified Architecture Framework® (UAF®)

  • Threat Detection in TLS: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly
    Threat Detection in TLS: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly
    Ian Farquhar, Distinguished Sales Engineer, Gigamon Dec 11 2018 6:00 pm UTC 59 mins
    While TLS (formerly known as SSL) has become the de facto way of encrypting data in motion on networks, it can also hide threats from your InfoSec team. As the volume of encrypted traffic continues to grow, organizations become even more vulnerable to encrypted attacks, hidden command and control threats and data exfiltration exploits that go undetected.

    To make this situation even more complex, the TLS 1.3 draft 28 proposal, ratified at the IETF 101 conference in London and now moving toward official RFC status, has actually removed the visibility which was widely deployed for threat identification in TLS 1.2.

    Once again, InfoSec teams find themselves at the fulcrum of a delicate balancing act. On one hand, encryption is moving toward ubiquity but on the other, we need to detect when threat actors use it too. And in detecting that misuse, we need to acknowledge and address critical management, troubleshooting, legal, regulatory, ethical and technical concerns. For example, we can’t decrypt just at the edge of our networks if we believe “perimeter security is dead.” Proxies on the network edge are a step backwards.

    What can you do? “Threat Detection in TLS: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly” will discuss the necessity of deploying TLS decryption in the core of networks and will explore innovative architectures that deliver that capability while maintaining availability and reliability.

    Learn how organizations can manage growing SSL/TLS traffic volumes by creating a centralized “decryption zone” to decrypt traffic once and give security tools newfound visibility into formerly encrypted traffic and threats.

  • The alchemy of data
    The alchemy of data
    Chris Wigget, Director Insights and Analytics, Britehouse a division of Dimension Data Dec 12 2018 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Information is the heart of the modern organisation. For many years now business intelligence has been at the forefront of taking data and attempting to turn it into actionable insights.

    The truth is that traditional business intelligence approaches are not able to provide the digital organisation with the level of insight that the modern business environment demands.

    In this talk we’ll examine how traditional business intelligence is failing the modern, agile organisation, how simply embracing ‘the next big thing’ can backfire, and why organisations find themselves in this situation.

    We’ll also show how advanced analytics can help companies escape the information swamp and start turning the data they have into the information they need.

    Beyond Open Source Compliance: Security in M&A Due Diligence
    Nabil Hannan, Managing Principal, Synopsys Dec 12 2018 5:00 pm UTC 30 mins
    The headline of Wall Street Journal article from March read “Due Diligence on Cybersecurity Becomes Bigger Factor in M&A.” In April, Gartner reported, “Cybersecurity is Critical to the M&A Due Diligence Process.” Companies that invest in open source license compliance as part of diligence are starting to dive more deeply into security issues.
     
    A first step in assigning the security of software assets is looking at known vulnerabilities in open source components. But, now as part of the Synopsys Software Integrity Group, Black Duck can bring much broader capabilities to bear to analyze the overall security of code assets, including proprietary code.
     
    This webinar will discuss application security issues at a high level and the security services that you can include with a due diligence audit.
