  • A Step-By-Step Guide to Building a Profitable Security Practice
    A Step-By-Step Guide to Building a Profitable Security Practice Garrett Gross, Director of Field Enablement Recorded: Aug 17 2017 33 mins
    As your clients work on their 2017 budgets, they will be paying a lot of attention to security. It’s probably the top priority for most of them. Threat profiles have expanded, new attack vectors have emerged and legacy systems simply can’t keep up. It’s not nearly enough to sell some security software or deploy a few firewalls. For IT service providers, this presents both a challenge and an opportunity. On one hand, your customers need new security solutions that you haven’t delivered before. But on the other hand, your customers want to pay you for services that will increase both your revenues and profits.

    Given that your customers will want their security challenges addressed immediately, you need to rapidly develop the skills and services required to get the job done.

    In this fast-paced session, join experts from AlienVault and MSPmentor to outline a step-by-step process you can follow to build a thriving, profitable security practice. Key topics to be addressed include:

    The five vital technology tools you need to run an effective security practice

  • How Avanan is Disrupting the Cloud Security Market
    How Avanan is Disrupting the Cloud Security Market Michael Landewe, Cofounder Avanan Recorded: Aug 10 2017 34 mins
    It's the Avanan Era of Security–most every security vendor has joined together on a single platform to solve the problem of security in the cloud. It is challenging every security assumption:

    • Single-silo solutions that solve one problem or only protect one SaaS;
    • Incompatible technology that makes it impossible to deploy true defense-in-depth;
    • Disruptive deployment that reroutes traffic;
    • Technology lock-in and vendor regret;

    The Avanan disruption in the marketplace is actually an elimination of the chaos of incompatible products that do not work together or don't integrate with the current enterprise security architecture.

    In this webinar, we will discuss how the Avanan platform changes the security equation for:

    • SaaS/IaaS: that can now offer cloud-native security,
    • Security Buyer: who can deploy and compare multiple solutions at once,
    • The Security Architect: who can integrate the cloud into the enterprise security workflow,
    • The CISO: who requires both security and compliance,
    • The CEO: who will not tolerate business disruption,
    • The User: who needs to just get work done.

    Soon, the Avanan Platform is the way that all cloud security technology will be compared, purchased, deployed and managed.

  • Making Microservices Event-Driven
    Making Microservices Event-Driven Jonathan Schabowsky Sep 7 2017 2:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Microservices may be small in size, but they have huge potential, especially when you pair them with the idea of event-driven architecture (EDA). Today developers are using microservices as the building blocks behind all kinds of cloud and enterprise applications, but most still think microservices = REST, which limits you to polling/reactive interactions.

    Join Jonathan Schabowsky of Solace’s Office of the CTO at Solace as he describes how combining EDA and microservices can help you improve all kinds of data flows. He’ll talk about query and command interactions, synchronous and asynchronous communications, and you’ll learn how to make microservices event-driven.

  • Elevating Intelligent Content to the Next Level
    Elevating Intelligent Content to the Next Level Michael Priestley, IBM and Rob Hanna, Precision Content Sep 13 2017 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    You may already know the value of content that is constructed based on its purpose rather than just presentation. But many solutions today lock that value into one product or silo, inhibiting collaboration and reuse across the enterprise.

    The Darwin Information Typing Architecture (DITA) is a widely-adopted XML standard that delivers on this promise of intelligent content, but there are some inhibitors to adoption. Some see it as too complex. Others work to create content in compliance with an existing content format such as HTML or Markdown. With Lightweight DITA in the works, we can finally bridge the gap between the promise of intelligent content and the challenge of diverse authoring platforms and communities.

    Join Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler and his special guests Michael Priestley, one of the original architects of the DITA standard, and Rob Hanna from Precision Content, for a free one-hour online discussion designed to help you decide whether you should consider adopting DITA or Lightweight DITA.

    Are you ready for intelligent content?
