A movement is underway. Businesses are awakening to a new era of the digital enterprise, requiring companies to find new ways of delivering their services built for the digital era. Success in this new era requires a digital industrialization strategy in which datacenters become the core asset of the business enabling a transformation from an infrastructure that is tightly coupled with the business to a modern infrastructure that enables any business.
Digital industrialization is a continuous cycle that organizations can use to turn IT infrastructure from a cost into an asset by standardizing on one set of technologies and economics across facilities, hardware, software, and operations; consolidating datacenters; abstracting functionality; automating operations and governing it all to ensure security, integrity, and compliance.
This presentation will go through why digital industrialization is needed, what the benefits are and how the Ericsson Cloud portfolio facilitates it.

Learn how DNS firewalls enable better network protection from 1) malware, 2) spear phishing, 3) DDoS attacks, and 4) data exfiltration. Also learn how by leveraging threat intelligence, DNS firewalls can 5) mitigate threats in an even more automated, informed way.
For example, you’ll learn that to protect from malware and data exfiltration, a DNS firewall is used to stop communication between malicious software or infected host and the malware command and control (C2) server. Without an outside connection or instructions, the malware is stopped in its tracks and ready for clean up. Or, that by adding a DNS firewall to your existing infrastructure, you can close the dangerous gap when NGFWs allow the TCP handshake to complete prior to enforcing policy. If you find these examples compelling, join us. You’ll never look at network security in the same way again.
