Join Eric Ogren, Senior Security Analyst at 451 Research, and Omri Iluz, CEO of PerimeterX, as they discuss how your best defense against automated website attacks rests with an approach founded on analyzing the behavior of humans and bots. 451 Research has talked with organizations that have saved millions in fraudulent transactions after embracing a behavioral analysis approach to security.
Sophisticated attackers are commercially motivated, using automated attacks to inflict damage. By abusing encoded business logic, they utilize real browsers to take over accounts, perform fraudulent purchases and scrape intellectual property, without triggering traditional security mechanisms. Through advanced techniques of cloaking from the world of malware, they disguise their nefarious intentions. Signature-based bot detection and WAFs are blind to these new threats, leaving your organization’s website defenseless.
In this webinar you will learn:
•How bots have evolved from simple scripts to sophisticated Man-in-the-Browser attacks
•How to protect against advanced modern attacks utilizing real-user browsers
•How to detect malicious behavior with Web Behavior Analytics (WBA) technologies
•Real-world attacks and how organizations use behavioral analysis to prevent them
•How to future-proof your business and your infrastructure

Today's storage world would appear to have been divided into three major and mutually exclusive categories: block, file and object storage. Much of the marketing that shapes much of the user demand would appear to suggest that these are three quite distinct animals, and many systems are sold as exclusively either SAN for block, NAS for file or object. And object is often conflated with cloud, a consumption model that can in reality be block, file or object.
But a fixed taxonomy that divides the storage world this way is very limiting, and can be confusing; for instance, when we talk about cloud. How should providers and users buy and consume their storage? Are there other classifications that might help in providing storage solutions to meet specific or more general application needs?
This webcast will explore clustered storage solutions that not only provide multiple end users access to shared storage over a network, but allow the storage itself to be distributed and managed over multiple discrete storage systems. In this webcast, we’ll discuss:
•General principles and specific clustered and distributed systems and the facilities they provide built on the underlying storage
•Better known file systems like NFS, GPFS and Lustre along with a few of the less well known
•How object based systems like S3 have blurred the lines between them and traditional file based solutions.
This webcast should appeal to those interested in exploring some of the different ways of accessing & managing storage, and how that might affect how storage systems are provisioned and consumed. POSIX and other acronyms may be mentioned, but no rocket science beyond a general understanding of the principles of storage will be assumed. Contains no nuts and is suitable for vegans!
Organizations are under constant pressure to improve their ability to recover from a disaster while lowering the cost of the disaster recovery process.

In this part of the series, “Everything You Wanted To Know about Storage But Were Too Proud To Ask,” we’re going to be focusing on the network aspect of storage systems.
As with any technical field, it’s too easy to dive into the jargon of the pieces and expect people to know exactly what you mean. Unfortunately, some of the terms may have alternative meanings in other areas of technology. In this Webcast, we look at some of those terms specifically and discuss them as they relate to storage networking systems.
In particular, you’ll find out what we mean when we talk about:
•Channel versus Busses
•Control Plane versus Data Plane
•Fabric versus Network
For people who are familiar with Data Center Technology, whether it be Compute, Programming, or even Storage itself, some of these concepts may seem intuitive and obvious… until you start talking to people who are really into this stuff. This series of Webcasts will help be your Secret Decoder Ring to unlock the mysteries of what is going on when you hear these conversations.
