Today, financial institutions are focusing on a triple mandate of run, manage, and change. This will ensure operational excellence, reduce costs and drive efficiency, while helping them manage risk & regulatory compliance more effectively, in an the ever changing regulatory environment. But above all, financial institutions are focusing on transformational activities that include application modernization and are adopting newer channels like digital transformation, big data and analytics and disruptive business models to drive growth.Read more >
Today, web application security vulnerabilities, including mobile threats, are the attack of choice for organized cybercrime. Year after year, the costs of these breaches increase — even going beyond monetary loss to affect an organization’s reputation. It’s no wonder that securing web applications in this constantly changing threat landscape has become the leading challenge facing chief information security officers (CISOs) and chief technology officers (CTOs). From threats to on-premises and cloud environments, to the increase in endpoints such as browsers and mobile applications, to heightened pressures to speed app delivery to market, it’s critical to have application security assurance as part of a mature overall security practice. Application security assurance services provide much-needed roadmap for processes and methodologies to ensure a secure systems development lifecycle (SDLC).Read more >

•The intangible benefits of network services in a cloud environment
The rapidly changing technology landscape is creating a paradigm shift in the way end-users access, experience and consume enterprise applications. This change is being driven by a number of elements that merge together in creating an applications estate that is characterized by its moving pieces. Mobility, Big Data and the Cloud have significant ramifications for Enterprise Applications that need to be addressed in order to create a dynamic, scalable and future ready experience for your end-users.
Doing that requires you to answer some very important questions:
How do you offer the most relevant applications and cater to the unique role requirements of your users?
What are the applications from your portfolio that can be most effectively transitioned to the Cloud?
How insights into your end-users behavior, accepted response times and commonly used devices and platforms can help in creating the most optimized experience?
How can insights into your end-users behavior, accepted response times and commonly used devices and platforms can help in creating the most optimized experience?
Join Brendan Crowe, Global Solutions Director, Application Managed Services at Unisys as he hosts a discussion between Rod Fontecilla, Vice President of Application Modernization for Unisys Federal Systems and Darren McGrath, Unisys Global Director, Mobility Solutions on how Mobility, Cloud and Big Data are driving rapid changes in your Applications Environment and what you can do to stay one step ahead.
Learn how Qualys can help you implement web application security throughout your systems development lifecycle (SDLC), so you can:
> Perform comprehensive, accurate scans — across all of development and deployment stages
> Block attacks — and control where and when your applications are accessed
> Prevent data breaches — and disclosure of sensitive information
The data centre is mission-critical to many businesses. An efficient chilled water system guaranteeing continuous cooling availability is fundamental in obtaining an overall low data center PUE, and it is thus important to clearly understand the different technologies available for your data centre application.
Join the Emerson Network Power Critical Advantage Webcast for all of the answers.
The webcast will provide insight into:
• The advantages of Chilled Water systems
• The different solutions available according to your data center internal conditions: air-cooled, freecooling, adiabatic
• How to achieve utmost efficiency at the data center system level with the iCOMTM Control
Chances are, at any given moment, your organization's web applications are under attack (if not already exploited). Attackers see web applications as the front door: just one vulnerability allows them entry - perhaps to the database supporting the web application or maybe to your business partners, such as the payment processing vendor supporting your application.
In this webcast, learn why Cross Site Scripting, SQL Injection, Input Validation and other common vulnerabilities continue to plague web applications. Speakers will discuss what types of web apps are most targeted (such as Java and .NET, according to the 2015 SANS Application Security Survey), why these types of applications are targeted, and what the common outcomes of these types of breaches are.
Presenters will also provide educational and technical resources to help security operations teams proactively manage their web applications by finding and reducing vulnerabilities - before attackers can take advantage of them.
Attend this webcast and be among the first to receive the associated whitepaper written by SANS Instructor, Gregory Leonard.
Inherent risks in web, mobile and cloud applications are keeping security practitioners up at night, according to the 2015 SANS survey on application security.
In this webcast, learn about the growing threats against applications, why applications are so risky, why you need to include application security in your enterprise security program, and how to get started.
Attend this webcast and be among the first to receive the associated whitepaper written by SANS Dean of Research, Johannes B. Ullrich, Ph.D.
Webcast highlights include learning to:
- Block attacks against websites in real-time—with a shield around coding defects, application framework flaws, web server bugs, and improper configurations
- Quickly deploy a virtual image alongside web applications—which can be set up and configured in minutes, requiring no equipment or administration resources or dedicated security staff
Vulnerabilities like Shellshock can expose unauthenticated attack vectors and increase risk to your organization—especially if you can’t fully assess your web applications. Understanding where and how attackers break in can help you eliminate – and prevent – problems in your own apps.
In this webcast, learn how to increase security with an automated process for testing web applications for vulnerabilities. Join us as we go inside a web app scanner during a live simulated attack to see how the scanner can:
•Probe the application for vulnerabilities such as Shellshock—showing the types of problems scanners look for
•Exploit weaknesses that are found—revealing how attackers use those to break in
•Suggests steps for fixing the problem—increasing app and organizational security
Mobile applications handle our most sensitive data – phone calls, SMS, geographic locations, financial information… the question is – can we really tell they’re secure? Who can assure us that they are not being spied upon? Can they be abused?
Erez Metula, world renowned application security expert, industry speaker and author of "Managed Code Rootkits will answer these questions, focusing on Android mobile applications and their common vulnerabilities.
This session will be all about the security of Android applications, how they can be hacked, the common mistakes developers make, and how they can be avoided.
In March 2012, the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) deployed the Gordon supercomputer, which was specifically designed for data-intensive workloads. The most notable feature of Gordon was the inclusion of 300 TB of flash SSD storage. In this talk, we will briefly introduce the Gordon architecture and then describe how a variety of applications made use of the SSDs. We conclude with lessons learned from our experiences with Gordon and how they influenced the design of Comet, SDSC’s most recent HPC system.Read more >
