Join Stephen Cobb, Security Evangelist at ESET to discover how:
- Vunerable SMB's like yours really are
- You can establish a cyber security policy for your organization
- You can defend your company-and it's employees partners and customers against online attacks
Many small and medium-size businesses (SMB) operate under the mistaken impression that their size, or the minimal security steps that they have already taken, will protect them from cyber attacks.

Antimalware Updates from the Experts: Vendors are adding more and more features to their security products, can you tell us what in your opinion is most important and why? Is it detection rate, performance or number of features in the product?
Antimalware Updates from the Experts: Currently there are over 45 endpoint security competitors in the industry so it might get challenging to choose the right product to secure the network. When deciding about security software, what are the most important attributes that should be looked at for a business? Do you think the attributes are different for an enterprise vs. a SMB?

The term Software Defined Data Center (SDDC) is making the rounds in the IT world. But while most companies may never actually build an SDDC, it’s important that IT organizations understand what this concept means and what it says about the future of IT infrastructure. In this 30 minute webinar, Evaluator Group Sr. Analyst, Eric Slack will define the software-defined data center concept, give some examples of software-defined products and technologies and discuss what how companies of all sizes can take advantage of this trend.
Software Defined Storage (SDS) is one of the most hyped terms in the industry. It is supposed to break vendor lock-in, allowing the use hardware from any vendor. Yet most data centers buy their storage hardware and storage software from a single vendor. Why? Mostly because software defined storage is answering the questions that IT professionals aren't asking. Join Storage Switzerland Lead Analyst George Crump as he discusses the three lies of SDS:
1. Software Defined Storage breaks vendor lock-in (no it doesn't)
2. Hardware doesn't matter with Software Defined Storage (yes it does)
3. There is a TRUE Software Defined Storage solution (no, there isn't)
The only thing you can count on in technology –and life- is change. And change is good! Join this webinar with Nexenta and Western Digital to learn how your options for all-flash software-defined-storage are growing! Learn about the many game-changing technology updates delivering real cost-savings, flexibility and high-performance for customers large and small.
Thomas Cornely, Chief Product Officer at Nexenta and Steve Wilkins, Product & Solutions Marketing at Western Digital will discuss:
* The new features of NexentaStor 5.0
* NexentaFusion 1.0 for simplified storage management and analytics
* The power and cooling savings PLUS high performance with All-Flash SDS
Join NSX experts for a series of engaging videos and learn more about the use cases driving the adoption of network virtualization today. Through the use of a lightboard, we’ll illustrate the technology and business drivers around network virtualization with VMware NSX.
While there are many benefits of a SDDC approach including NSX, micro-segmentation has become the foundation for a dramatic improvement in data center security for many organizations. Join us to learn:
- Why there is no other solution in market that can achieve micro-segmentation in an operationally feasible manner
- How Service Composer, distributed firewall, and service chaining work in concert to bring considerable benefits, implementing micro-segmentation to stop lateral movement in your data center
- The ability to insert third party network and security services to respond to changing conditions in the data center
Build a fundamentally more agile, efficient and secure application environment with VMware NSX network virtualization on powerful industry standard infrastructure featuring Intel® Xeon® processors and Intel® Ethernet 10GB/40GB Converged Network Adapters.
During this presentation two areas of development in OpenStack Neutron will be discussed.
The first is Quality of service, we will describe how to enable it, the back end drivers it is implemented on and the features currently available and in development.
Extension interoperability in OpenStack Neutron will also be discussed, specifically in regards to the Open vSwitch driver and the extensions use of the OpenFlow tables.
Microsoft workloads, such as Microsoft SQL and Microsoft Exchange, are two of the main business critical workloads running on Nutanix Enterprise Clouds. It is very important to size their resources correctly, otherwise, availability disruptions might occur, which affect QoS and subsequently cause business damage.
While there are already application-oriented monitoring solutions for Microsoft System Center Operations Manager (SCOM) available, such as Microsoft SQL Management Pack or Exchange Management Pack, they are solely application-oriented and do not offer sufficient insights into underlying Nutanix infrastructure layer monitoring. In this webinar, you will learn how Comtrade's Management Pack for Nutanix simplifies your work by providing answers to these questions:
- Which Microsoft SQL/Exchange platforms are running on Nutanix clusters?
- Which virtual machines are hosting Microsoft SQL/Exchange applications?
- Are the VMs, hosting Microsoft SQL/Exchange applications, properly sized regarding CPU/Memory/Storage?
- Are the MS SQLExchange applications properly replicated for high availability and disaster recovery scenarios?
- Does the latency of hosting Nutanix cluster effect Microsoft SQL/Exchange applications running on it?
- Does the hosting Nutanix cluster have sufficient resources?
- Is the application data hosted on SSD drives?
This information is vital for keeping QoS for Microsoft workloads running on Nutanix Enterprise Clouds at their optimal performance. Comtrade's Management Pack for Nutanix provides this information in SCOM which enables IT administrators to combine it with the information provided by application oriented management packs (MPs) – in short, they get the complete overview over the state of Microsoft workloads running on Nutanix Enterprise Clouds.
SD-WAN can dramatically reduce cost and increases the ability to rapidly bring new services online, connecting users to all types of applications, and speeding up time to market. But the idea of re-architecting the WAN can be daunting and the decision to adopt an SD-WAN solution can be a difficult one.
Join renowned network expert Ethan Banks, Co-Founder of Packet Pushers, and Rolf Muralt, VP Products Management SD-WAN at Silver Peak, in a webinar that discusses the SD-WAN market, lessons learned, and what features to be on the lookout for as you make your decision. They will discuss issues around technology selection and deployment, including:
· How a zero-touch, hybrid or SD-WAN can leverage multiple connectivity forms
· Ways to prioritize and route traffic across different connections
· Quality of Service (QoS), and how to maintain 100% uptime
· Best practices for transitioning with minimal impact on budget and resources
· Real customer examples that demonstrate different deployment stage and benefits
Ransomware and business email compromise (BEC) scams have dominated the security threat landscape for the first half of 2016, truly making it the Year of Online Extortion. This webinar is designed to discuss these and other prominent threat trends we are currently seeing, as well as to give organizations possible security strategies and solutions that they can use to better defend their assets and data.
