  • PKI - Your Ally in the War Against Security Threats PKI - Your Ally in the War Against Security Threats Rae Barton, Enterprise PKI Expert at Gemalto Recorded: Feb 23 2017 58 mins
    PKI used to be difficult to implement, and was seen as complex, labor intensive and expensive. The development of powerful credential management software has brought considerable improvements. It now does much of the manual work that used to be left up to the administrators saving them valuable time in the war against security threats. In our last webinar, we found almost 50% of those you voted cited the Internet of Things as the main driver for PKI. More connected devices and users will create a need for higher levels of security in all organizations as the number of possible threats and attacks increase.

    For security professionals, implementing and modernizing their PKI systems will be crucial, keeping in mind not all PKI implementations are created equal. Some are inherently more complex, depending on the level and layers of security needed for within your organization. Following our previous PKI foundational webinar, this one will cover the elements you need to consider when designing a PKI environment.

    Join us for the “PKI – Your Ally in the War Against Security Threats” to learn how you can maximize your organization’s security and the things you need to know to get started including:

    •PKI use cases in an enterprise environment to secure access and protect data
    •Budgeting for your PKI deployment of modernization
    •Outlining the deployment size, scope and timeline
    •Analyzing and reviewing current and/or future security policies
    •Maintenance and administration of the PKI system
    •Configuring and understanding certificate authorities
    •Developing a scalable approach to prepare for future needs
    •Addressing the protection of sensitive keys and the ecosystem integration

    Series Title: Illustrating the Value of Network Virtualization
    Series Abstract: Join VMware NSX experts for a series of short webcasts focused on the technology and business drivers around network virtualization. Using a lightboard, we’ll illustrate how network virtualization with NSX can support an organization’s strategic initiatives.

    Webcast 2/3
    Title: NSX for Multi-site Deployments and Disaster Recovery
    Abstract: Deploying NSX across multiple datacenters allows organizations to dynamically move and manage workloads between multiple physical locations. The benefits of this capability are immediately clear: workload mobility, resource pooling, central management, consistent security policies across vCenter domains/sites, and disaster recovery. In this session, we’ll illustrate use cases and capabilities, including L2 connectivity without the use of OTV, cross-data center security policies, and isolating networks for disaster recovery testing and validation. In the second part of the session, we’ll dive into how NSX can improve your business disaster recovery plan and strengthen your overall RTO.

    In this session, we will discuss:
    •The many benefits of deploying NSX across multiple data centers
    •Capabilities and use cases for cross-data center connectivity and security
    •Using NSX to improve your disaster recovery plans and strengthen RTO

  • Is Your Storage Ready for Disaster? Is Your Storage Ready for Disaster? W. Curtis Preston with StorageSwiss, Lei Yang and Bill Roth with Tintri Recorded: Feb 22 2017 60 mins
    The recovery expectations of users and organizations is changing and their tolerance for downtime is lower than ever. IT professionals can no longer rely on the traditional backup and recovery process to meet these new requirements. Primary storage needs to do more, and simple LUN-based replication is not going to get the job done. Instead data centers need to look for primary storage that has advanced replication capabilities and can integrate with multiple hypervisors and existing data protection solutions to create a holistic disaster recovery strategy.

  • Moving VMware from Disaster Recovery to High Availability Moving VMware from Disaster Recovery to High Availability George Crump, Storage Switzerland Recorded: Feb 21 2017 60 mins
    VMware's stretch cluster does an excellent job of protecting against a site failure. If your primary data center fails then it is easy to bring up VMs in the second site. But what if you need more? How can you extend VMware's stretch cluster capability from single site protection to multiple sites? What if you want to extend recovery into the cloud? A multi-site and multi-cloud data distribution strategy not only creates more resilient IT operations, it also empowers workload mobility.

    In this live webinar Storage Switzerland and Hedvig will discuss the limitations of VMware stretch cluster, the possibilities of a more highly available approach and how to achieve complete IT resiliency.
  • Detect Ransomware Before it’s Too Late with AlienVault USM Detect Ransomware Before it’s Too Late with AlienVault USM Jim Hansen Recorded: Feb 21 2017 61 mins
    By now you've probably heard about new ransomware threats like CryptoWall, which encrypts your data and demands payment to unlock it. These threats are delivered via malicious email attachments or websites, and once they execute and connect to an external command and control server, they start to encrypt files throughout your network. Therefore, spotting infections quickly can limit the damage.

    AlienVault USM uses several built-in security controls working in unison to detect ransomware like CryptoWall, usually as soon as it attempts to connect to the hackers’ command and control server. How does it all work? Join us for a live demo that will show how AlienVault USM detects these threats quickly, saving you valuable clean up time by limiting the damage from the attack.

    You'll learn:

    How AlienVault USM detects communications with the command and control server
    How the behavior is correlated with other signs of trouble to alert you of the threat
    Immediate steps you need to take to stop the threat and limit the damage
