    Don’t let Smartphones Kill your PKI Security Strategy Gregory Vigroux, Enterprise Mobility Expert at Gemalto May 23 2017 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Half of businesses admit security is their biggest concern to increasing user mobility. Securing enterprise mobility has been an ongoing and arduous topic for IT security professionals. Maintaining high-assurance security, while offering access to company resources to an on-the-go workforce has become a balancing act. So much so, a third of businesses actually prevent employee access to company resources via mobile. This is likely not a long term or sustainable solution to the problem.

    So how do you find a compromise that won’t kill your security strategy? There are currently many technologies from derived credentials to mobile PKI. IT professionals are feeling the pressure to find a viable, user friendly, easy-to-deploy and secure options. In this webinar, we will discuss the current solutions in-depth and how they impact your current IT security policies. Attendees will learn more about:
    -Software-based security versus hardware-based security
    -How this impacts your back-end systems
    -Technology such as derived credentials and mobile PKI
    -Implementing a mobile PKI solution

  • Recovering your data from a Ransomware Attack
    Recovering your data from a Ransomware Attack Sushant Rao, Senior Director, Product Marketing May 25 2017 6:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    When you are hit by a ransomware attack, such as the recent WannaCrypt worm, you don’t have many options. You can pay the ransom, in the hopes that your data will be unencrypted. Or, you can wipe your systems clean, and then recover the data. But, backups are typically done on a daily basis. Depending on when the attack hit, the amount of data that you will lose could be in the hours. Fortunately, there is a better option.

    Continuous Data Protection (CDP) captures every write operation from an application and store it in a second location. This means that you can go back to the last data that was written before the ransomware attacked occurred. This ensure that data loss, if any, is minimal. Join this webinar to learn more about CDP and why it’s your safety net when ransomware hits.

  • Modern Flash Storage for Best of Breed IoT Projects
    Modern Flash Storage for Best of Breed IoT Projects Rob Commins, VP, Marketing, Tegile Systems Jun 13 2017 6:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Customers who are deploying IoT platforms sometimes are forced to make difficult and limiting decisions for their infrastructure. Most application workloads are not consistent in their performance and capacity requirements, further compounding the difficulty on the infrastructure decision. A series of misleading choices often leads to over-engineering and thus overspending, or running systems that cannot meet the application demands. This webinar illustrates an approach for designing and configuring the compute and storage infrastructure for IoT. An ideal compute and storage infrastructure for IoT would have great agility and more than meet all of the technical requirements. It would have a variety of compute, and network personalities that were easy to change, and a storage layer that would support several storage protocols, contain multiple inline space saving technologies, and optimize the use of flash technology from a performance, capacity, and cost perspective.

    Modern flash optimized arrays are an ideal and unique storage infrastructure to meet these ever-changing requirements. In this webinar, we will examine the importance of:

    - Storage optimized along both the performance and capacity vectors of flash drive technologies providing great performance as well as extreme capacities.
    - Fully flexible infrastructure providing several storage configurations allowing for an increase of raw performance with the addition of flash modules or increased capacity by adding cost effective dense storage (flash and/or HDD).
    - Multi-pool internal architecture that is so in line with the “pooling” methodology internal to many IoT architectures that design and administration complexities are lessened or completely eliminated.
