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.

  • Successful organizations run on key metrics and IT security should be no different. But which security metrics should operations, management and the boardroom be focused on? Factories focus on “days without an accident” Is the cyber parallel “days without a breach?”
    What to measure, how to measure, and how to communicate performance is key to improving the security team’s effectiveness and standing within the organization. Information like:
    - Which departments have access to which servers?
    - Who are the privileged users and when are they most active?
    - Where are the assets with vulnerabilities that can be reached from outside?
    - When are security defenses like firewalls likely to maxout?
    Join Dr. Larry Ponemon, Chairman & Founder of the Ponemon Institute, for key results of a new research study on security metrics and change management, and Jody Brazil, Founder, President and CTO of FireMon, for a pragmatic perspective on generating actionable metrics from your network security infrastructure and reducing the risks of relentless change.

  • *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

  • The future of work sees changes to how employees work, how managers lead, and how organizations are structured. However, technology still remains the central nervous system of organizations and things like enables flexible work, collaboration, communication, and BYOD. In short, IT helps organizations be competitive. But how is IT changing in the context of new work behaviors and expectations, a multi-generational workforce, the cloud, globalization, and many of the other trends that are shaping the world of work? Join us in this session as a panel of experts debates and explores how IT is changing and what the future of IT looks like.
  • Malware today is very different from just a few years ago. Traditional AV technology is no longer able to consistently and fully remediate or defend against today’s most advanced threats. New and emerging threats such as ransomware, social engineering driven attacks and micro variant financial threats are just some examples of difficult to remediate infections. This presentation will take a look at the malware landscape and explain why these tactics are so effective against traditional AV technology. We will examine three specific families of infections and highlight their tactics to evade detection and what issues occur with remediation. Lastly, we will talk about Webroot’s innovation and how our SecureAnywhere AV solution is capable of defending against, and remediating today’s most advanced threats.

  • Best Practices: Secure Wireless for 21st Century Universities Recorded: May 19 2010 62 mins
    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
    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
    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
    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.
