  • Just in Time Automation
    Just in Time Automation Jeff Kunzelman, Chief Technology Officer at POPin Recorded: Jun 22 2017 22 mins
    The classic way of identifying, developing, testing and rolling out new technology relies on management to identify a bottleneck and set a deadline, product management to scope the issue and develop the requirements and then the development time “sprints” through an agile process to deliver the goods. Once the solution was rolled out, the employees suddenly had another process with which they had to comply.

    Now, however, there is a better way. IT and development leaders can crowdsource roadblocks from their audience as well as their teams instead of guessing what to address, which will tell them exactly where technology can automate processes and solutions in order to make it easier for their employees. The result? Solutions employees actually need that are built the best for your organization.

    Join Jeff Kunzelman, Chief Technology Officer at POPin, as he discusses how crowdsolving and automation can revolutionize your business. Specifically, expect to takeaway:

    •Examination of past and current ways of handling development
    •Identification of ways to avoid bottlenecks
    •Examples of successful crowdsourcing
    •Best practices for technology automation
    •Solutions for employee-driven initiatives
    •And more…

  • Unpatched Windows Machines Will Make You “Wanna Cry”
    Unpatched Windows Machines Will Make You “Wanna Cry” Dan Ortega - Vice President of Marketing Recorded: Jun 15 2017 3 mins
    The Wanna Cry ransomware worm ravaged computers across 150 countries. The attacks began May 12, 2017, infecting PCs of organizations that had not applied security updates to some versions of Microsoft Windows. This menace paired ransomware that encrypted computers and demanded payment with a worm that enabled it to spread quickly. The ransomware encrypts all the user’s data, then a pop-up message appears demanding a $300 Bitcoin payment in return for the decryption key.
    In the UK, the National Health System attack resulted in hospital workers being unable to review patient health histories, causing postponed surgeries and increasing risks to all new patients. Medical staff reported seeing computers go down “one by one” as the attack took hold, locking machines and demanding money to release the data.
    Organizations had only days to patch their Windows end-user and server systems. Once on a system, the malware discovers on what subnet it is located, so it can infect its neighbors. Anti-virus software is the next defense when a worm has breached a machine. Ensuring total coverage of IT infrastructure is critical. Any chinks in the armor must be detected and remediated. Anti-virus products detect strings of code known as virus signatures before killing the offending program. When these products fail, network administrators are forced to redirect suspicious traffic to IP sinkholes, and then direct them from harm’s way.
    Just like anti-virus software, patch management solutions usually require a management agent to be installed on the target system. Not surprisingly, 100% coverage is very rare.
    Despite encouraging reports of waning threat activity, Wanna Cry continues to pose significant risks. Blazent provides a SaaS solution that enables its customers to take advantage of five or more data sources to build an accurate inventory of their IT assets, such as end-user systems and servers.

  • Leveraging Automation for Self-Healing Clouds
    Leveraging Automation for Self-Healing Clouds Todd Bernhard, CloudCheckr Product Marketing Manager Jun 28 2017 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    When it works, the cloud runs itself, but too often humans get involved and mess things up. Users can spin up and forget about instances, or create password policies that are insecure or make typos that can cause downtime. It is important to be alerted to such events but there’s only so much one administrator can do. This is where automation comes in. The ability for your infrastructure to “self-heal” makes it possible to run a large cloud infrastructure at scale.

    Join us Wednesday, June 28 at 2pm EST for Leveraging Automation for Self-Healing Clouds. During this interactive webcast, CloudCheckr Product Marketing Manager Todd Bernhard will present attendees with an overview of CloudCheckr’s Automation capabilities, including:

    - 450 automated Best Practice Checks to detect anomalies and security problems
    - “Fix Now” functionality for Best Practice Checks
    - Auto-Fix functionality to eliminate steps and delays

    EIP: Construyendo el Camino a los Servicios de la Tercera Red Emerson Moura - Distinguished Systems Engineer, Cisco & MEF CALA Marketing Co-chair Jun 29 2017 3:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Carrier Ethernet es el combustible para la economía digital global y la base sobre la cual se construye nuevos servicios dinámicos, seguros y orquestados para el mundo hiper_conectado. Pero la falta de estandarización para interconectar proveedores y operadores de servicios Ethernet es un obstáculo para el crecimiento y la eficiencia del mercado. Actualmente, la mayoría de las interconexiones Ethernet son interconexiones de red a red (NNI) no estándar y personalizadas, lo que impide escalar el mercado. Más de una docena de proveedores de servicios y proveedores de tecnología miembros del MEF han participado en el proyecto MEF para crear Puntos de Interconexión Ethernet (Ethernet Interconnect Points o EIP) aprovechando los estándares existentes para interconexión CE. La primera fase del proyecto EIP involucró la creación de una Directriz de Implementación de Punto de Interconexión Ethernet que recomienda cómo usar las Interfaces Estándar de Red a Red (ENNIs) de forma eficaz. Esta guía inicial se enfoca en la configuración de servicios de acceso Ethernet (E-Access) de una manera simple, y las nuevas directrices avanzarán en complejidad con en el tiempo. Las directrices ayudarán a la industria a escalar rápidamente y reducir complejidad.

    Este webinar explorará dónde se dirige el mercado, las expectativas técnicas, los obstáculos operacionales que pueden surgir y la necesidad de que los operadores gestionen eficazmente la transición a medida que el mercado avanza hacia la estandarización. Este seminario apunta a aquellos proveedores de servicios que compran servicios de Ethernet mayoristas de operadorese interconectan sus redes para crear servicios CE minoristas de extremo a extremo pasando por múltiples redes. También se compartirá informaciones que pueden ser importantes para la toma de decisiones mientras desarrolla su estrategia de cómo sacar total provecho de interconexiones Ethernet estandarizadas.

    Intelligente Endpunktsicherheit: mehr als nur Vorbeugung Ruediger Weyrauch, Director, Central Europe System Engineering bei FireEye Jul 5 2017 12:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Moderne Lösungen für die Endpunktsicherheit erfüllen zwar die Aufgaben, für die sie entwickelt wurden, bieten jedoch keine lückenlose Sicherheit.
    Umfassender Endpunktschutz erfordert vorbeugende Maßnahmen, Virenschutz, Tools zur Bedrohungserkennung und -abwehr am Endpunkt und weitere Funktionen.
    Selbst wenn ein Unternehmen dazu mehrere Punktlösungen einsetzt, werden dadurch höchstwahrscheinlich nicht alle Sicherheitslücken geschlossen.
    Manche Anbieter werben mit „Endpunktsicherheit der nächsten Generation“. Doch was genau meinen sie damit?

    Ruediger Weyrauch, Director, Central Europe System Engineering bei FireEye, erläutert in einem Webinar, worauf Sie achten sollten, damit Ihre Endpunktsicherheitslösung der nächsten Generation Ihre Endpunkte lückenlos schützt.

    Die Themen:
    - Der aktuelle Stand der Endpunktsicherheit und die damit verbundenen Herausforderungen
    - Die Vorteile von Lösungen für die Angriffserkennung und -abwehr an Endpunkten (EDR)
    - Die Vorteile von Bedrohungsdaten und ihre Rolle bei der EDR
    - Warum ein Endpunkt-Agent die folgenden Merkmale aufweisen sollte:
    •Mehrere Engines für die Bedrohungserkennung und -abwehr
    •Integrierte Prozessabläufe von der Erkennung über die Untersuchung bis hin zur Abwehr
    •Skalierbarkeit, mehrere verfügbare Formfaktoren, Unterstützung für verschiedene Betriebssysteme
