  • *On this webcast we're giving away a pass to our partner event: the Chicago Cyber Incident Response Summit, between June 21-23, 2014*

    Let’s face it, there’s unrelenting pressure on IT to enable competitive advantage through new technology and use of data assets‒-but the business is driving initiatives that can push sensitive production data into more and more exposed areas. The key question is ‘How can you enable the business to be agile AND take a more proactive, programmatic approach to security at the same time?’ With the advanced threats that are pervasive today, it’s becoming increasingly dangerous for organizations to deploy new technologies and processes, and then reactively address the implications for data security in the ecosystem. You need a blueprint to reverse this trend in your organization.

    In this webinar, William Stewart, Senior Vice President of Booz Allen Hamilton and Jeff Lunglhofer, Principal of Booz Allen Hamilton–a leading management technology and consulting firm driving strategic innovation for clients–will discuss the top trends in cyber threat mitigation, data privacy, data governance, and data security, with Mark Bower, VP Product Management and Solutions Architecture at Voltage Security.

    Attend this webinar to learn more about how to:
    •Increase responsiveness and security in your IT environment and architecture
    •Fight pervasive threats from inside and outside attack with data-centric technologies
    •Raise your organization’s overall data privacy, compliance, and security profile
    •Implement a new data de-identification framework across production, test & dev, and analytics use cases
    •Proactively enable critical business initiatives

  • Jack Madden discusses Enterprise Mobility with Arun Bhattacharya to get the CA perspective on the way it should be. This means going beyond BYOD and MDM, and embracing MAM, MEM, MCM, and IoT. For many companies, finding the balance between employers and users privacy and security has been a problematic issues.
  • Heartbleed is not an exploit you want to ignore as an IT professional. It exposes passwords and cryptographic keys, and requires not only that you patch OpenSSL for each of the services using the OpenSSL library, but also that you replace the private keys and certificates so that attackers won’t be able to use any of the data compromised by the vulnerability. The simplicity of the exploit makes it powerful. It appears that over a half million websites are vulnerable.
    In this session we'll cover:
    What you need to know about the Heartbleed vulvnerability
    How to detect it using AlienVault USM
    How to investigate successful Heartbleed exploits
  • In this webcast we will show:
    1. The Heartbleed vulnerability in detail, how it occurred with examples of how it can be used against your organization
    2. How you can identify your business exposure and what systems are vulnerable
    3. How Tripwire’s solutions work together to help you close the detection, remediation and prevention gaps around Heartbleed

  • How Modernization Drives Business Performance Recorded: Mar 19 2014 57 mins
    The software, tools, and processes used to win, serve, and retain customers will become critical to the success of the organization in what Forrester identifies as today’s ‘age of the customer’. Those who will succeed are agile, proactive, and best able to deal with this disruption in the status quo of business. One of the issues a business must incorporate into its strategy for success is why and when to modern existing IT solutions.

    Commissioned by CA Technologies, Forrester Consulting research evaluated the impact of software modernization, or lack thereof, on a number of key business metrics, such as revenue growth, profitability, and product and application development cycles time. The goal of the research was to inquire about the level of modernization across a number of classes of enterprise software and to explore the correlation between leaders and laggards in modernization and high and low business performers.

    Forrester’s study yielded a number of both expected and counterintuitive findings. This webinar presents key findings and resulting five key planning recommendations.

  • Who's Going to Modernize and Manage my Mainframe? Recorded: Mar 5 2014 46 mins
    Over the course of the last 15-20 years, “industry experts” have been proclaiming the death of the mainframe. The reality is that the mainframe continues to thrive and grow and house the majority of the world’s most critical business data.

    The real issue we are beginning to experience is a shortage of skills for managing the mainframe. Mainframe DBAs are aging and retiring and new talent is not being trained quick enough. The new generation of IT professionals has a completely different way of thinking and working. The i(Pad,Pod, and Phone) generation has no interest in the acronyms TSO or ISPF. In order for these up and coming professionals to manage the mainframe they will require a new toolset geared towards their way of thinking.

    In this webcast, we’ll provide real life examples of z/OS systems management for the next gen mainframe. We’ll also discuss how an integrated role based workspace can help you simply and effectively manage tasks like identifying DB2 performance bottlenecks or performing complex migrations.

  • Testing on the Mainframe; Why You Care… Recorded: Feb 11 2014 57 mins
    “Do more with less” is something you and your management often hear. And you cope, you work a bit harder, you skip some things that have a priority other than “critical” and you cope. But there are moments where you and others in your company can’t cope anymore, and something has got to give.

    Why spend 20+ hours to test a new version of your DB2 database, a bug fix or enhanced version of a new application and even a new version of your z/OS if you can do 80% of the testing in 10 hours? Or maybe even 5 hours? Unfortunately, Murphy does not have to do more with less. And the “other” 20% of you and/or your end-users who did NOT test will cause problems costing more than you have saved by less testing. Testing must be rigorous and it should reflect REAL production behavior 100%.

    Automation is the only answer to this. Join us for a one hour session to see how YOU can start using the latest money saving features in DB2 months earlier for 30% or the cost testing takes you today! Or how YOU can be 100% sure the new version of your OS behaves exactly like your previous version.
