  • Deploying and managing network security at remote locations can be time consuming and expensive. McAfee Next Generation Firewalls give your organization a simple solution for centrally deploying, managing and updating remote locations. No technical skills are required to install at remote locations, freeing your skilled staff to focus on more important security management.

    Join us for an in-depth look at how plug-and-play deployment and remote management can reduce manual effort, reduce costs, and improve your network service. Steve Smith, Senior Technical Manager at McAfee, will review how the McAfee NGFW can be installed and up and running in a matter of minutes using our cloud-based installation server. He will also review how the McAfee NGFW Security Management Center gives you remote management and enterprise-wide situational awareness.
  • Today’s security event monitoring and correlation tools are under enormous pressure. Security Analysts are inundated with data, but rather than being given insight, it is more difficult than ever to sort through and locate the real events that need attention. The next generation of security tools purports to process much larger and a greater variety of data sets, run deep-dive analytics in real-time, and rely more on intelligence than attack signatures. But what does this actually mean?

    How do I collect the right data?
    What kinds of new detections can I do?
    How do I get enough context to overcome false positives?
    How do I automate more of my security intelligence, or the intelligence of others?
    What should I look for in a solution?
    How is this different from my SIEM, IDS/IDS, and Advance Malware Detection products?

    These, and other questions, will be addressed to shed light on what has quickly become a market space of tremendous promise, but currently shrouded in confusion.

  • This Analyst Briefing will cover key findings from Frost & Sullivan’s suite of video technology research for 2013, as well as the Digital Media research team’s impressions and conclusions from the 2014 National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) Show, taking place April 5-10, 2014 in Las Vegas.

    Reasons to Attend:

    •Understand key technical trends in content delivery and monetization, and their impact on video encoding/transcoding offerings
    •Gain insight into worldwide market growth opportunities
    •Receive highlights related to the competitive landscape
    •Identify customer perceptions and requirements when choosing vendors and solutions
  • Today’s IT professionals need security firewalls that do more than just packet filtering and stateful inspection. It’s critical that network pros redefine which metrics will actually ensure their security solutions will not be a performance bottleneck. This webinar digs into today’s firewall solutions, exploring their capabilities and providing pointers for selecting the solution that best meets IT security and performance requirements.

    What You Will Learn
    Why packet filtering and IPS aren’t the only performance metrics that matter
    The performance impact of running multiple security services
    How to select in-line security products that meet today’s multi-function security needs
  • Are attacks on your network and users still occurring, despite continuing efforts to stay on top of security? What impact would malware have on your business if it was able to gain internal access and steal sensitive information?

    Without solutions that can disrupt the chain of events that occur during an advanced attack, many businesses are still being infiltrated and losing data every day. This webinar will cover the best practices in disrupting attacks with content security solutions - connected to optimize protection.
    Join this webinar as:
    •You will learn the tactics used by attackers today to infiltrate businesses
    •You will hear about the leading technologies available to disrupt advanced attacks
    •You will walk away with the knowledge to assess your own environment, and optimize your security
    Businesses today face more advanced attacks than we’ve ever seen in the past – and defending against them takes a connected approach which can disrupt the multiple points of infiltration and exfiltration used in the process of a breach. With most attacks seen in the wild using phishing emails to reach their target, a web link or malicious file to deliver a payload, and an outbound stream of communication to exfiltrate data – implementing a Secure Email Gateway, Secure Web Gateway, and Data Loss Prevention technology together will provide a barrier difficult for even the most advanced attacks to overcome.

    Don’t miss this webinar if you have a stake in the security of your most valuable information, or are directly responsible for the implementation of security solutions to protect it. Register now for this 30 minute webinar.

    •Knowledge of investigative techniques
    •The ability to recognize fraud or corruption indicators
    •Tools to respond to red flags

  • Your Vulnerability Scanner is Lying to You (And What To Do About It) Recorded: Nov 6 2013 47 mins
    Infosec is known for constantly telling IT to "patch your stuff" to prevent getting compromised. Scan reports with a bunch of red are kicked over the wall, and scary reports showing thousands of vulnerabilities are an all-to-frequent result of a vulnerability assessment. But these scan reports are often lying about the true severity of the vulnerabilities, which creates more work for everyone and leaves Infosec crying wolf more often than it should. In this talk, we take a closer look at the problem with vulnerability ratings and how to have IT fail less by having to patch less, while simultaneously being more secure.
