Truth or Spin in AV Testing?

Jon Friedman, Tech Target Aryeh Goretsky, ESET,Righard Zwienenberg , ESET
Third-party tests can be extremely caluable for evaluating anti-malware products. In-fact, more tests are available than most people realize, covering not only detection rates and scanning speeds, but also factors like number of false positives and ability to block zero-day attacks. But an educated evaluator can both avoid the snares of misleading tests and find a surprising number of useful third party tests.

  • As organisations accept that they are more than likely to be breached, strengthening business resilience and response capabilities is becoming just as important as developing defensive strategies. As a result, organisations are crafting risk-based approaches to balance their priorities in order to protect, detect, respond and recover.

    Drawing on the findings of the Infosecurity Europe Industry Survey, this panel of industry experts will discuss the challenges for information security practitioners and how to prioritise and balance risk. The speakers will share insight into how to develop an information security strategy that protects the organisation’s information assets, whilst ensuring it is resilient and capable of responding robustly to incidents.
  • Companies rely heavily on networked technology today to operate their businesses. Highly distributed organizations like restaurant chains, retail stores, financial services or supply chain companies have an extra layer of difficulty. Rarely does each of the remote locations have IT expertise on site. As an IT manager, you are demanded by your executive management to keep the network available 100% of the time, avoid security breaches, support all the new strategic marketing initiatives and to do all of this with less money than you had in your budget last year! This session will review the top 5 challenges an IT manager in this situation needs to consider and suggest solutions:

    1) Executive mandate to "Do more with less"
    - Free-up your time to do what you do best
    - Vendor consolidation
    - Outsource, focus Internal resources on strategic tasks

    2) Lack of IT Expertise at remote sites
    - Consistency of deployment, Office in a box
    - How to make sure all locations have the same technology
    - Preplanned for growth and new services

    3) Sometimes lack of ownership of remote sites (Franchises)

    4) Security compliance/PCI DSS

    5) High availability
    - Network is down, business has stopped (can't take payments)

  • Wie Sie in drei Schritten ein klares IT-Configuration Management aufsetzen

    Als Verantwortlicher für IT-Security sind Sie konstant mit möglichen Angriffszenarien und deren Abwehr beschäftigt. Ein Großteil der Angriffe sind nur deshalb erfolgreich, weil Komponenten in Ihrem Netzwerk unzureichend konfiguriert sind.
    Die Herausforderung ist, genau diese Maschinen zu identifizieren und sicher zu stellen, dass sie korrekt konfiguriert werden und dies auch bleiben.
    Lernen Sie in unserm Webcast wie Qualys Policy Compliance Ihr IT-Configuration-Management verbessern kann und damit Ihre Basis-Security stärkt und das Ganze voll automatisiert.
    Erfahren Sie:
    • Etablieren und Umsetzung von Security Configurations
    • Automatisierung und Durchführung von regelmäßigen Configuration Assessments
    • Priorisierung und Umsetzung von Remedation Workflows
  • Vous souhaitez en finir avec l’information dispersée à travers des centaines de répertoires partagés, espaces personnels, et disques durs locaux ?

    Vous êtes à la recherche d’une plateforme collaborative tout-en-un ?

    Vous êtes certainement déjà familier avec Microsoft SharePoint, mais êtes-vous sur de connaître l’étendue de son périmètre fonctionnel ?

    Car si SharePoint reste une excellente plate-forme intranet, de portail web, de collaboration et de partage documentaire, SharePoint va bien au-delà de ces fonctions avec le réseau social (RSE), les outils de développement, et la gestion documentaire (de type GED).

    Participez à notre webinar pour mieux comprendre la richesse de la plateforme et ses bénéfices : une collaboration unifiée et des gains de productivité à chaque niveau de l’entreprise (utilisateurs métiers, DSI, direction).

    Nous aborderons également les modèles de déploiement de SharePoint (100 % cloud, hybride ou on-premises) ainsi que les limites et bénéfices de chaque configuration.

    Dans un second temps, nous nous pencherons sur les questions de déploiement de SharePoint et nous découvrirons comment AvePoint, avec sa solution de migration pour SharePoint 2013 & Office 365, vous permet d’accélérer la mise en place de votre plateforme.

    Nous ferons un tour d’horizon des problèmes les plus communément rencontrés pendant les projets de migration, et nous verrons en 3 points comment AvePoint vous permet notamment de les adresser :

    • Optimisation des ressources dédiées à la migration en automatisant la suppression du contenu obsolète

    • Réduction de la perturbation des activités pendant le processus de migration grâce à une planification personnalisée.

    • Maintien de l’ensemble du contenu, des permissions et des métadonnées jugés pertinents par vos équipes.
  • In the age of digital transformation trust is key to the growth of services in both the public and private sectors. With more and more services evolving and innovating around digital identity there is a universal need to bridge and balance business incentives with government requirements. At Kantara Initiative we see the transformation cycle as a 4 stage process: strategy setting, innovation, deployment, and assurance. Few, if any, organizations can succeed at all of the strategic stages of change and innovation in isolation. We invite you to join us to discuss how trust frameworks will evolve to bridge the digital transformation of identity assurance.
