  • 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.
  • The IT industry is currently undergoing one of the most radical disruptions in its history, as traditional data centers are being replaced with cloud computing environments. New workloads such as mobile computing, social networking, and big data analytics are driving the need for a more dynamic, agile approach to enterprise computing. It is most prevalent in the networks within and between modern data centers.

    This presentation will discuss a new approach to application-aware data networking based on open industry standards (the Open Datacenter Interoperable Network, ODIN). In particular, we focus on recent approaches to SDN and NFV which deliver real value in next generation data networks. We will also discuss case studies which demonstrate the value of emerging cloud based, software defined environments.

  • Now that NIST has published Version 1.0 of the Framework for Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity, the long awaited CSF, what are the implications for companies? How can the CSF help your business improve its defenses? Cameron camp investigates.
  • Deploying and managing network security at remote locations can be time consuming and expensive. McAfee Next Generation Firewalls give your organization a simple solution for centrally deploying, managing and updating remote locations. No technical skills are required to install at remote locations, freeing your skilled staff to focus on more important security management.

    Join us for an in-depth look at how plug-and-play deployment and remote management can reduce manual effort, reduce costs, and improve your network service. Steve Smith, Senior Technical Manager at McAfee, will review how the McAfee NGFW can be installed and up and running in a matter of minutes using our cloud-based installation server. He will also review how the McAfee NGFW Security Management Center gives you remote management and enterprise-wide situational awareness.
  • Are attacks on your network and users still occurring, despite continuing efforts to stay on top of security? What impact would malware have on your business if it was able to gain internal access and steal sensitive information?

    Without solutions that can disrupt the chain of events that occur during an advanced attack, many businesses are still being infiltrated and losing data every day. This webinar will cover the best practices in disrupting attacks with content security solutions - connected to optimize protection.
    Join this webinar as:
    •You will learn the tactics used by attackers today to infiltrate businesses
    •You will hear about the leading technologies available to disrupt advanced attacks
    •You will walk away with the knowledge to assess your own environment, and optimize your security
    Businesses today face more advanced attacks than we’ve ever seen in the past – and defending against them takes a connected approach which can disrupt the multiple points of infiltration and exfiltration used in the process of a breach. With most attacks seen in the wild using phishing emails to reach their target, a web link or malicious file to deliver a payload, and an outbound stream of communication to exfiltrate data – implementing a Secure Email Gateway, Secure Web Gateway, and Data Loss Prevention technology together will provide a barrier difficult for even the most advanced attacks to overcome.

    Don’t miss this webinar if you have a stake in the security of your most valuable information, or are directly responsible for the implementation of security solutions to protect it. Register now for this 30 minute webinar.
