  • Thales e-Security the market leader globally for payment HSMs continues to evolve its solutions to meet the latest security requirements. Host card emulation (HCE) is a particular focus for 2015 with comprehensive support for the various proprietary HCE specifications released by the major card schemes. Today, HCE enables contactless mobile payments on Android phones to take place at an NFC-capable POS terminal without the need for a Secure Element (SE) inside the phone. It is evident that HCE support is an important consideration for any issuer wanting to launch payment support on Android phones since the current rollouts of Apple Pay are restricted to Apple iOS devices.

    Thales would like to invite you to attend a webinar covering how Thales can help you generate new revenue by getting your HCE solution to market quickly and securely.

    Ian Hermon, Product Marketing Manager for Payment Security Solutions at Thales e-Security is the presenter and will be covering the following topics:
    •How HCE apps deliver new transactions and new revenue
    •What you need to support the new security and risk models required by HCE
    •How to maximize use of your existing back office security infrastructure
    •The flexibility of the Thales HSM offerings
  • After July 14, 2015, Microsoft will no longer issue security updates for any version of Windows Server 2003. If you are still running Windows Server 2003 in your datacenter, you need to take steps now to plan and execute to protect your infrastructure. The end of support means two things: newly discovered vulnerabilities in Windows Server 2003 will not be patched anymore, nor will they be documented and acknowledged by Microsoft. This represents an increase in the risk of using Windows Server 2003. However, many organizations still count on Windows Server 2003 for critical business operations. It’s important for organizations to understand the risks of running out-of-support platforms against the costs and effort of migrating to a new one.

    In this webinar, we will cover 2 important topics to help you secure, migrate and protect your legacy environment:
    * What risks you are facing for Windows Server 2003 end-of-support
    * How to shield vulnerabilities when the platforms are no longer be patched

    Join the webinar to know the most comprehensive protection to help manage the risks of out- of-support platforms like Windows Server 2003!
  • Businesses are struggling to keep up with unpredictable demands, extreme data growth, and aggressive service-level agreements related to application and data availability. IT management is changing, and there is need for greater application administrator control over backup and recovery. Research shows that most enterprises have not significantly updated their data protection processes in the last 5-7 years. This has resulted in highly fragmented environments with multiple copies of information owned and protected in silos—in turn elevating cost and complexity. The need is there, and customers are aware of current data protection shortcomings

    Join Tim Nolte for this webinar to understand how software and hardware can come together to deliver a joint backup, recovery and archiving solution
  • DDoS attacks have been around for more than a decade, and in that sense they are old news. However, what a DDoS attack actually is has been constantly changing. There are several persistent misconceptions about DDoS attacks and DDoS defense that leave too many organizations vulnerable today. One misconception is that a DDoS attack is all about size. While certainly true, modern DDoS attacks can enormous, DDoS today is more frequently targeting your applications and security infrastructure, such as your firewall and IPS. Another misconception is that DDoS defense is an either-or proposition. You handle it in the cloud through a provider, or you have DDoS defense on premise. In fact, one layer of protection is not protection at all.

    Join us for a session that will cover:
    • An overview of the current attack landscape and implications
    • Best practice defense against modern DDoS attacks
    • Lessons learned by global enterprises struck by attacks
  • Flowspec is an important tool in combating DDoS attacks, especially in large networks. Arbor provides valuable intelligence on how to craft your Flowspec routes, as well as a handy interface for managing the routes.

    In this session, Steve Walsh, Senior Security Engineer at AOL, describes what Flowspec is, how it came about, and how it works. Learn about some of the tests performed by Juniper and others on scalability, and the discovered limitations that were overcome with the implementation of Flowspec.

    Join this session to learn:
    •Some of the different methods of deploying Flowspec
    •How Flowspec compares with alternative filtering methods
    •Best practices for secure traffic routing
  • As traditional network architectures come under increasing strain, Software Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) hold the promise of making networks more open, predictable, flexible, user- and service-friendly and lower cost to operate. These virtualized, software-controlled networking environments, however, do not yet benefit from the range and sophistication of DDoS protections and security available for traditional networks. This presentation focuses on how the delivery of traffic intelligence, threat detection and attack blocking is evolving, regardless of whether BGP and flow or future SDN/NFV-based techniques are in use.

    Attend this session to learn how Arbor Networks is adopting its DDoS solution suite to advance protections in SDN- and NFV-based networks.
  • Join Gemalto on April 29th to hear Stan Mesceda, Senior Product Manager at Gemalto give his expertise on data in motion and the importance of High Speed Encryption
  • Almost every organization is challenged by the increasing need for more bandwidth. Cloud-based services, content-rich applications, and access to internet sites is putting more and more strain on the limited pipes coming in to your data centers. WAN Optimization had been the tool of choice to connect and manage branch office traffic. It's now more and more being used to bridge multiple Internet connections for organizations large and small to create more bandwidth in and out of their data centers. Traditional WAN Link Load Balancing has evolved from simple back up and VPN connectivity to a robust traffic management tool that seamlessly adds bandwidth using virtually any ISP technology. In this webinar you’ll learn the basics of Hybrid WANs, what they and Link Load Balancing can do for your organization, and discover more about Fortinet’s Hybrid WAN solutions.

  • Mobility is the new frontier that is ‘still arriving’ and enterprises are grappling with how best to enable it, keeping enterprise security and employee satisfaction front and center of mind. Inherent in that balance is a careful trade-off as security is paramount but it should not come at the expense of productivity. On one hand is the Wild West with no security whatsoever and happy employees bringing in devices and apps of their choosing. On the other hand are happy enterprises with strict security controls but dissatisfied and disappearing employees! This webcast will help strike a balance that works for both entities - the User and the Enterprise. No utopia promised but you will come away with an understanding of:

    1) What the challenges around Mobility in the Enterprise are
    2) Why you should look into tacking them
    3) How one approach works for both the employees and the enterprises
  • Despite huge investments in breach prevention technology, data breaches have not slowed down. In just about every major breach, hackers exfiltrated data undetected over many months. Understanding the mindset and approach of cyber criminals can help you and your organization shrink the window between infection and discovery.

    In this webinar, Nat Kausik, CEO at Bitglass and Rich Campagna, VP Products at Bitglass will discuss the three major types of breaches, and the techniques used by today’s hackers to execute these breaches. You’ll learn how to identify the clues that they leave behind so that can help you identify a breach early, - limiting breach damage in the process.
  • Webcast highlights include learning how to:

    - Understand advantages of agent-based scanning—by leveraging lightweight agents that are extensible, centrally managed and self-updating. Traditional vulnerability scanning methods present a number of challenges for IT security teams who either don’t have the proper credentials, or are scanning assets that aren't always connected to the local network. See how agent-based scanning resolves this problem

    - Integrate Cloud Agent with existing Qualys solutions—using installed Qualys Cloud Agents to extend capabilities to Qualys Vulnerability Management (VM), Qualys Policy Compliance (PC), and Qualys Continuous Monitoring (CM)
  • As bad actors relentlessly continue to take advantage of the many innovations and trends in our current world, network security professionals are realizing that the passive mode of checking for threats is no longer adequate. As BYOD is now the norm rather than the exception in the corporate world and most organizations have a significant presence in the cloud, bad actors are more than happy to take advantage of the new conduits into the corporate network. Therefore, the need to catch, repair and eliminate security threats as early as possible has never been greater. With this in mind, VSS Monitoring has been helping various enterprise customers to deploy an inline layered security infrastructure that provides multiple lines of defense against the bad actors.

    This webinar will present some of the use cases we have been involved in, what were the motivations that led to the deployment of layered security and how a layered security architecture, anchored by VSS Monitoring, allowed enterprises to become more nimble in their never ending fight against bad actors. Join us for a safari tour of an exciting and evolving space!

  • Do you know how to calculate how your network downtime costs and the financial impact it has per location?

    Every hour of network downtime can cost companies between $250,000 and $1 million. How many hours of network downtime do you experience each month?

    When network connections fail, there is a loss of productivity, brand credibility and revenue – revenue that is likely lost to competitors. Whether your unplanned downtime is due to wired line outages or hardware failure, the cost of that downtime multiplied by expensive troubleshooting is simply too high.

    Many put off business continuity planning until a problem occurs, which tends to be more expensive than investing in a solution now. If your business cannot afford network downtime, join this webinar to learn about failover solutions and the benchmarking formula to calculate your cost of downtime.

    We are all guilty of procrastinating – and we all know the costs associated with procrastinating. Let us provide you with the solutions and tools to calculate the cost of downtime for your organization and the ROI a failover solution will provide.

    Attendees will learn how to:
    •Integrate wireless failover into existing network environments
    •Reduce the high costs of staying connected
    •Limit expensive truck rolls
    •Calculate your network downtime costs
  • Information is the lifeblood of any business. If the data required to operate and maintain market presence becomes inaccessible, compromised, or worse – unrecoverable, the business impact could be devastating. Learn about the existing and emerging risks to your critical data infrastructure and business operations. What mitigation strategies are available and what considerations do you need to assess? How does the changing landscape for consumption of IT such as cloud, on-premise, and hybrid solutions effect survivability and securitization of your prized assets?
