iPhone’s Wi-Fi™ Meltdown: Wakeup Call for Your Enterprise

Craig Mathias (Farpoint Group), Ram Appalaraju (Meru), and Joe Epstein (Meru)
You have all seen Steve Job’s disbelief when he unveiled the iPhone 4 Live Demo, and it didn’t work. But we are not talking about Steve Job’s or the iPhone 4 “Wi-Fi meltdown”. We’re talking about you – this critical moment could happen to all of us – and you need to understand how this happened and how such a failure could have been easily prevented.
Join Craig Mathias, Principal of the wireless and mobile advisory firm Farpoint Group, and wireless networking experts from Meru Networks for a frank and revealing discussion of the problems involved – and the solutions available – in building robust, reliable, and, yes, large-scale Wi-Fi installations.

  • 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.

  • With data breaches and data leakage incidents becoming front page news, cyber investigations are taking on more importance within organizations. This calls for a new set of skills to be developed such as the ability to work with all levels of law enforcement, lawyers and attorneys and within the judicial system. Many of these investigations will call for the cybersecurity practitioner to be a witness and give testimony. What's the best way to do this to protect yourself and the organization, while also providing the information that will help law enforcement and the justice system to get the information they need? Join (ISC)2 on March 26, 2015 at 1:00PM Eastern for our next "From the Trenches" webcast where we'll talk about what it means to be an expert witness and the best practices for serving as one.
  • As a security professional, you are on constant alert for external threats. But many breaches are caused internally by incorrect configuration of IT resources, including SSL. To help improve how encryption is used, Qualys created a research project called SSL Labs to address two major problems of the ecosystem: lack of tools and documentation.
  • As organizations work hard to ensure complete anti-malware coverage on desktops, servers, and at the perimeter, attackers are already moving on to techniques completely outside those detected by traditional security tools. Enterprises must consider alternative approaches to defending their infrastructure and turn their focus to tools, products and techniques that approach security in new and different ways.

    In this webinar, Eric and Dave will discuss:

    • How the volume of system alerts from Network Security solutions are creating lots of noise but lack context to focus on the real threats facing your data
    • How to stop advanced threats – with no advance knowledge of the tools or malware – by following the attack sequence
    • Why bridging the gap between system security and data protection is the key to stopping ever increasing sophisticated attackers from stealing your data
  • This webinar draws on Bradford Networks’ extensive BYOD experience to help organizations avoid the landmines that plague BYOD initiatives.

    Attend this webinar and you will learn how to avoid:
    • Organizational Resistance - Establish and manage a cross-functional committee of stakeholders to build consensus
    • Support Burden - Leverage proven techniques to educate end users and minimize help desk calls
    • User Frustration - Implement ultra flexible BYOD policies without compromising security
    • Onboarding Latency - Maximize the end users’ ability to self-administer new and lost/stolen devices
    • Vulnerable Endpoints – Guided remediation for user devices that are under-protected and non-compliant
  • Attackers always have a goal in mind and it’s up to you to understand how they will get there. But how is that possible when there is simply too much data to sort through and act upon?

    The upcoming release of Core Insight 4.5 adds new attack intelligence features to consolidate, normalize, and prioritize vulnerability management initiatives enterprise-wide. These features allow users to reduce the noise from scanners by more than 90%, so that you can focus on the most critical threats.

    Join us on March 26, 2015 at 1pm ET to get a sneak peek and live demo of Core Insight 4.5. Hear about new features such as:

    - User customizable and flexible reporting
    - Centralized asset store for extended scalability
    - Enhanced exploit matching and filtering
    - Interactive and adaptive attack paths

  • Best Practices: Secure Wireless for 21st Century Universities Recorded: May 19 2010 62 mins
    Greg Schuman/Matt Richard (Franklin & Marshall College), John Sheedy (Bradford), Cal Calamari (Meru )
    Universities and colleges everywhere are depending on wireless LAN as the primary network access for students, professors, staff and guest. The wireless LAN must be pervasive, robust and secure. Students bring a plethora of Wi-Fi™ devices including iPhones, iPads, Blackberries, laptops, Netbooks, and gaming consoles to campus and expect to use them on the Wireless LAN everywhere and anytime. How are universities providing wireless coverage? How are they dealing with the large influx and variety of WiFi device types? How are all these devices authenticated and managed without impacting the network performance which may affect everyone?

    Join us and learn how Franklin and Marshall College tackle these issues across their campus. Plus hear from Meru Networks and Bradford Networks what they see being deployed as the best practices for Wireless LAN security in higher education.
  • Eliminating Wireless LAN Pain in mHealth Recorded: Apr 7 2010 49 mins
    Cal Calamari; Meru Networks, Director of Marketing
    Mobile health (or mHealth) depends on making your wireless network reliable, predictable, and secure. In this presentation experts from Meru will highlight how virtualization and other recent innovations can both achieve these goals and create a low ongoing IT support cost. Achieving that is not always easy, because traditional wireless networks are inherently unpredictable and unreliable, and often it is through painful learning experiences and a large amount of IT support that the wireless networks meet the needs of healthcare. Attend this session and learn to avoid the traditional pitfalls that increase mHealth risks for healthcare providers.
  • Delivering Toll Quality Voice with mHealth Applications Recorded: Apr 2 2010 19 mins
    Rich Nedwich, Sr. Solutions Manager
    Mobile health relies on a wireless network that can handle the unpredictable healthcare environment. In this webinar you will learn how to avoid to resolve common mHealth problems like dropped voice calls, missed barcode scans, and poor data transfer from patient telemetry equipment. There will be time for Q&A, so bring your toughest questions.
  • How Meru Powers The All-Wireless Enterprise Recorded: Mar 29 2010 32 mins
    John Gallagher
    Overview of Meru Networks and it's unique technology for delivering lower costs, higher efficiencies, and exceptional user experience for wireless network deployments.
Achieving the All-Wireless Enterprise
Enterprises using wireless networking for business-critical applications belong to a diverse range of industries and geographic areas. They have an equally diverse range of reasons for choosing wireless: universities require very high bandwidth density for all-wireless dorms; manufacturing companies need smooth roaming for telephony users; hospitals demand rock-solid reliability for critical patient monitoring systems. And there are enterprises that need all of these and more.

The one thing these companies all have in common is that they derive real strategic value from the wireless LAN and wireless access is not a second-class network to be used only when an Ethernet port is unavailable. This channel will help you learn about the benefits and real-world experiences of becoming an All-Wireless Enterprise.
