  • Forty-four states, DC and four territories have adopted the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). This means that school districts across the country are planning for 100% online assessments during the 2014-2015 school year. One of the most important conditions needed for being able to administer online assessments is network infrastructure readiness.
    Attend this 30-minute webinar and join Gavin Lee, Senior K-12 Business Development Manager at Juniper Networks, to discuss the critical network must-haves that all school districts should consider when looking to deploy a robust and supportable network. You will also receive practical guidance on how to get the most out of your network infrastructure and how to best prepare for the CCCSS assessments:

  • Heartbleed is not an exploit you want to ignore as an IT professional. It exposes passwords and cryptographic keys, and requires not only that you patch OpenSSL for each of the services using the OpenSSL library, but also that you replace the private keys and certificates so that attackers won’t be able to use any of the data compromised by the vulnerability. The simplicity of the exploit makes it powerful. It appears that over a half million websites are vulnerable.
    In this session we'll cover:
    What you need to know about the Heartbleed vulvnerability
    How to detect it using AlienVault USM
    How to investigate successful Heartbleed exploits
  • Software-defined networking offers the potential for an open network platform, hosting diverse applications, running over multiple technologies and vendors’ equipment. Openness is arguably the key to widespread SDN adoption, and the elusive goal of multi-vendor interoperability.

    This session will address the implications of Openness on SDN, including the evolving role of standards and OpenSource Software, including an examination of why the Open Networking Foundation, Network Functions Virtualization, and OpenDaylight are indicative of the future of networking.
  • Rob Sherwood, CTO of Big Switch Networks, will present an end-to-end open source technology stack for SDN R&D, spanning switch hardware, software and SDN controllers. He will touch on the Open Compute Projects' switch design, Open Network Linux, Project Indigo, Project Floodlight and others. He will also discuss how these projects fit together, their various evolutionary paths, and how this stack fits in the landscape of emerging commercial and open source SDN products.
  • Automation is a powerful tool. It strips time and cost out of processes, minimizes errors, and frees up skilled staff to focus on higher value activities. Most IT teams have already capitalized in some part on automation, and most IT professionals can see the potential in extending automation across the enterprise. But how do you embed automation in the company IT DNA? Where do you start in the journey from script automation towards enterprise-wide process automation?

    In this session you will learn how you can scale automation to an enterprise-level through the adoption of a Center of Excellence. Our proven approach creates a cohesive framework for automation and breaks through silos, so your organization benefits from economies of scale and the advantages that automation brings.

  • Security challenges of connecting & collaborating with Microsoft™ SharePoint® Recorded: Jun 20 2012 44 mins
    Security challenges of connecting & collaborating with Microsoft™ SharePoint®: Addressing the risks associated with information sharing within and beyond the enterprise.

    As organizations seek to grow their business and create new revenue streams, they need to be able to connect and collaborate with a highly distributed group of employees and business partners around the globe to enable efficient sharing of critical business information.

    SharePoint is a predominant collaboration solution used across many European enterprises. However, concerns about how to leverage SharePoint whilst also managing risk are increasing as the practice of storing sensitive data and documents in SharePoint becomes more common amongst larger and more diverse user bases.

    This document-centric nature presents many unique challenges as documents are dynamic and often hide sensitive data within. Securing SharePoint often requires coordination between multiple controls and processes depending on the customer’s unique environment.

    This webcast provides expert insight into the challenges associated with managing a SharePoint environment and advice about how to address this complexity including:

    •How to provide access to SharePoint both within and outside of your environment
    •Managing content security in a dynamic environment
    •Addressing the challenges of providing access from mobile devices

    Traditional Identity and Access Management (IAM) platforms were built with one primary scenario in mind, to run on an enterprise’s premises for their tightly scoped user community.

    The business and technology world has moved on, businesses want to be more innovative and agile. Gaining a competitive edge means exploiting technologies such as cloud, virtualisation, worker mobility enablement, personal device adoption, and business collaboration tools. IAM has become pivotal in enabling business innovation.

  • Cloudonomics or Risky Business? How to Architect your Services Recorded: Jun 16 2011 49 mins
    The economies of cloud computing promise great rewards. But these rewards will only become reality if the associated risks of cloud computing are addressed. And preferably these risks should be addressed early on, ideally during the design of these services. In this session you will learn about a ground breaking new way to design, build and run new, reliable and secure cloud services. In the age of cloud computing, leveraging virtualization, abstraction and sourcing are key to delivering greater returns. See how this can be achieved in a simple and repeatable way.

  • Identity as Security Glue for the Cloud Recorded: Mar 30 2010 48 mins
    The security of the cloud is a hot topic that is being widely debated, but typically more from a threat and data privacy perspective. By contrast this session will focus on the issues and opportunities around identity and access management (IAM) and the cloud. Whether your organization is a current or prospective cloud consumer or cloud provider, IAM and its interoperability across the Internet needs to be central to your security management strategy. In the absence of this, we security professionals will be struggling to manage the security of application silos (now in the cloud) until the end of time.
