  • Shoring up Your Defenses by Leveraging Analytics and Machine Learning
    Shoring up Your Defenses by Leveraging Analytics and Machine Learning Mark McGovern, VP, Product Mgmt., CA; John Carnes, Infosecurity Senior Adviser, Anthem; Erik Von Geldern, FXCM Aug 24 2017 5:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Attackers are getting quicker and more sophisticated. Today's enterprise defenders aren’t able to withstand the pace and complexities of the threats they face. Automated tools and intelligence are being deployed to breach your IT infrastructure and access your priceless data by targeting privileged accounts. In playing defense, security teams must become proactive, not reactive and use data and analytics in a meaningful way, being more effective and agile in detecting attackers and quickly thwarting them. Join CA Technologies and (ISC)2 on August 24, 2017 at 1:00PM Eastern for a discussion on emergence of machine learning and security analytics as tools that organizations can leverage to defend their data and some practical ways it can be used to protect key assets such as privileged accounts.

  • Success Factors in Threat Intelligence: Part 4 - Connecting the Dots
    Success Factors in Threat Intelligence: Part 4 - Connecting the Dots Allan Thomson, Chief Technical Officer Aug 24 2017 6:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    This series describes a comprehensive “business technical approach” to the justification, definition, design and execution of Threat Intelligence Programs.

    What do we mean by “business technical approach’ to Threat Intelligence?

    Much in the industry is focused solely on one technical aspect or another of threat intelligence data that indicates information about a specific malware family, a set of indicators that can be used to block malicious sites, campaign information that highlights a threat actors profile, their tactic, techniques and procedures. But much of the technically focused content do not discuss how organizations can gather or construct that information themselves, and even more so, how an organization would organize themselves to respond to such data. Much of the output of the industry is providing the fish to organizations rather than teaching the organizations how to fish themselves.

    A ‘business technical approach’ is one where we define an approach focused on the business needs, the organization personnel, organizational roles & responsibilities, team structure and those elements’ interaction with technology to address the challenge of successful threat intelligence operations. Our goal is to help organizations build effective Threat Intelligence programs.

    In this final part of the CSO Series, we will describe how successful TI Programs can fully deliver on reducing risk in organizations. What does success look like for an effective TI Program when it is fully integrated into organizations security framework.

  • Six foresights for the SDN – ensuring security, connectivity, and compliance
    Six foresights for the SDN – ensuring security, connectivity, and compliance Amnon Even Zohar Director of Cloud Product Management, Tufin & Dan Rheault, Sr. Product Marketing Manager, Tufin Aug 29 2017 3:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Despite the rampant adoption of cloud computing, some companies are hesitant to move entirely to the public cloud. Instead, they rely on the higher degree of control of the SDN in the private cloud, or utilize a hybrid approach. While the private cloud offers more control and manageability, ensuring that applications are deployed successfully, securely, and within the parameters of compliance can pose challenges without proper visibility and the foresight for auditability.

    Organizations that are using a SDN need to employ best practices at the start to ensure that they are successful in the future.

    Please join members of Tufin cloud team for an informal product-agnostic discussion on how network security policy management (NSPM) solutions can ingrain best practices in deploying and managing applications in the SDN, ensure connectivity, and enforce security. Topics for discussion include how to:
    •Build a zero-trust policy in the private cloud
    •Ensure compliance across all access changes
    •Design and deploy network segmentation efficiently
    •Deploy business applications with access continuity
    •Ingrain preparedness for audits

  • Worried about security breaches: Discover why endpoint visibility is not enough
    Worried about security breaches: Discover why endpoint visibility is not enough Narayan Makaram, Senior Director of Product Marketing, Arctic Wolf Networks Aug 31 2017 6:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Traditional Endpoint Protection (EPP) products have failed to detect advanced malware that easily evade signature-based antivirus solutions. To counteract this problem, Gartner reports that 100% of EPP solutions will incorporate Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) capabilities, focused heavily on security analytics and incident response.

    Even so, customers are realizing that protecting endpoints alone is not enough to prevent security breaches. That’s where a managed detection and response (MDR) service comes into play. MDR provides 360-degree visibility into endpoints and security devices, and offers 24/7 network monitoring.

    In this webinar, you will learn:
    - What EDR vendors offer beyond EPP solutions
    - Why Endpoint Detection and Response alone is not enough
    - How Managed Detection and Response (MDR) makes up for EDR shortcomings

  • Hybrid & Multi-cloud environments: Strategies for migration & app modernization
    Hybrid & Multi-cloud environments: Strategies for migration & app modernization Jay Lyman, Principal Analyst, 451 Research with Shashi Kiran, CMO, Quali Sep 6 2017 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Hybrid clouds are important for enterprises having on-premise deployments as well as legacy applications. Likewise, multi-cloud scenarios appeal to organizations that want the flexibility to move between different clouds and not get locked-in into either one public or private clouds architecture. While over 70% of enterprises have expressed a need to deploy hybrid and/or multi-cloud architectures, as they modernize their application architectures the rollouts are complex and time consuming causing budget overruns and delays. The complexity is largely associated with the lack of common tooling, mismatched cloud architectures and expertise. These can be significantly overcome by providing access to on-demand, self-service IT environments (on-premise as well as public cloud, or a combination thereof), that would allow for more predictable application performance and security, thereby allowing for faster cloud migration and rollout, with reduced cost and risk.

    Join this webinar with 451 research and Quali to learn:
    •Current trends in hybrid and multi-cloud deployments and enterprise requirements
    •How incorporating sandboxes and self-service environments in the workflow can smoothen cloud migration, hybrid deployments and the flexibility of multi-cloud deployment. Demo included.
    •Sample case study of an enterprise undergoing cloud migration with best practice recommendations
