Chat is an excellent channel to improve service desk productivity, but when dealing with complex issues, it’s sometimes not enough. If your chat solution is implemented in a standalone silo, then customers may have to transfer to phone support when their issues go beyond the point of text, resulting in a disjointed customer experience. But if the chat transitions directly into a screen-sharing session, the support agent can instantly see and resolve the issue while maintaining a seamless conversation. This session will outline how to increase the value and power of chat through integrating it with other solutions such as remote support, knowledge bases, CRM and more. Turn your service desk into a one-stop-shop with a modern, integrated approach to support.
Many Security Operation Centers operate in a reactive mode. They primarily respond to alerts that are being presented to them by implemented detection technologies. And we all know alerts are generated in overwhelming volumes, severely crippling SOC’s effectiveness and efficiency. Today’s threat landscape requires SOCs to operate ever more proactively to keep up with the threat actors. More and more SOCs therefor are actively ‘hunting’ for threats that may be residing in the environment they are to defend. ‘Hunting' however requires a different approach from the traditional, reactive mode, not least for the SOC experts themselves.
Join Matias Bevilacqua, Mandiant Principal Incident Response Consultant, as he discusses tips and tricks for hunting for those lurking threats: what to look for, what tools to use, etc.? You will leave the session with some hands-on material to start turning over stones and uncover threats you never knew were there.
According to the latest annual Webroot Threat Brief, 97% of malware is unique to a specific endpoint, rendering static, signature-database security virtually useless. In fact, many attacks are staged, delivered, and terminated within a matter of hours, or even minutes, having harvested user credentials and other sensitive information. With the rising popularity of polymorphism and other trends, it is more crucial than ever that organizations strengthen their security postures with next-generation endpoint protection and real-time, highly accurate threat intelligence. Join this webinar for an in-depth discussion of the most recent quarter’s malware stats and trends, and how businesses can leverage this data to keep themselves, their users, and their customers safe from advanced attacks.
In 1896, Sakichi Toyoda created “autonomation”, sometimes called intelligent automation. Ever since then manufacturers and, now service providers, have been trying to reduce the number of people involved in nearly every process. There seems to be a prevailing belief that automation is the “magic bullet” to greater efficiency. The downside of humans involves their lack of speed (they are simply slower than machines) and the introduction of human errors into the process. But the upside of people is their brain. They can think, evaluate, assess, question, choose, make decisions and resolve ambiguities. This creates the dilemma we in IT face every time we decide to automate a process. The tools are readily available to accomplish the automation task but have we successfully matured the process to allow it to be automated in the first place or is the “magic bullet” really human intervention? Join Jim Blayney of CA Technologies and George Spalding from Pink Elephant as they noodle on the pros and cons of process automation in IT.
In this webinar you will learn:
- What kind of process is an effective automation candidate?
- How to design a process leading to automation
- Why the pressure to automate sometimes creates an over dependency on tools vs. solutions?

Since IT is primarily “Knowledge Work” it’s critical we understand our productivity vs. the value we create. Time is the key factor in calculating productivity. It is also important to know what value-added vs. non-value activities consume our time.
Leading organizations are tapping into a new Lean IT measurement model to better understand how to measure throughput, efficiency, effectiveness and quality of ITSM services.
There are three common measurement constraints:
1. What to measure for value creation, alignment and operational excellence.
2. Interpreting results. Many lack the skills and methods required to analyze metrics data to support corrective or preventative action.
3. Getting/trusting data. Underlying data collections systems are not designed to support analytical methods required for management decision making and/or are not trustworthy.
This session is about how savvy IT managers are implementing a new Lean IT monitoring and metrics and ITSM.
In 45 minutes we’ll cover:
What’s Lean all about
How Lean maximizes customer value by minimizing waste
Critical to quality measurement for ITSM
Value stream mapping technique
Lean ITSM value stream metrics
Interpreting result with examples of non-value activities (waste)
How to get trustworthy data

SAM Maturity…Let’s look at those two words together. By literal definition, Software Asset Management would indicate you are ‘managing’ your software assets. If you are doing it ‘correctly,’ you’re probably in a ‘Mature’ state. But how do you know? Can you articulate a strategic vision that enables you to meet your business challenges, by demonstrating an optimized license position? Do you even know what that means?
SAM Maturity can range on a scale from having limited inventory capability, minimal usage or metering data, automated entitlement management, process optimization, reduced audit risk and continuous compliance through complete asset lifecycle management, trend analysis while bridging the gap between current mode of operations and desired state

This webinar concentrates on how Snow Device Manager combines enterprise mobility and software asset management to deliver full control over the organization’s mobile devices to meet business needs.
Despite the rise of credential theft via phishing attacks and cyber-breaches, passwords alone are still the most common form of protection for employee accounts; many of which are used to gain access to sensitive data and systems. Not only are passwords often static, too easy to guess, and prone to theft, it’s also difficult to verify who is actually using them. These security issues with passwords are bringing two factor authentication to the spotlight, which enable a second security check beyond user name and password. Implementing this extra layer of security not only protects sensitive data and critical systems, but also verifies the user is who they say they are. This webinar will feature expert insight into multi-factor authentication technology and how organizations can shore up their security practices to better protect their networks and privileged accounts.
Improvements in effective communications and collaboration within enterprise organizations has driven innovative new solutions for Voice over IP, instant messaging, video conferencing, telepresence, shared desktops, and SIP Trunking just to name a few.
