DDoS attacks are rising in size, frequency and complexity; recent research from Arbor Networks discovered a 334 Gbps DDoS attack! What makes this concerning is that there isn’t a single DDoS protection product on the planet that can stop an attack of this magnitude. So what’s the solution? You need to leverage your network to stop DDoS attacks.
In this session, representatives from two industry leaders – Talbot Hack from Arbor Networks and Mike Geller from Cisco Systems – discuss best practices in leveraging your network for DDoS detection and mitigation.
This presentation will cover:
-The use of current and emerging technologies such as, Netflow, BGP, Flowspec, S&D/RTBH and SDN/NFV
-An introduction to a joint Arbor-Cisco solution which embeds Arbor’s Threat Management System (TMS) technology in the Cisco’s ASR 9000 router for network embedded, virtual DDoS protection

To increase agility, drive workforce productivity and better support customers’, business is demanding the delivery of new innovative applications, including collaboration, video, VDI and everything cloud. All this, however, must be achieved with flat budgets and without introducing additional risk. This is the “New Normal” for IT.
To reduce data center costs and speed service delivery, organizations are adopting converged infrastructure platforms like Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS), while readying the network with the capabilities and capacity needed to deliver dynamic services. Doing this effectively not only requires performance visibility to maintain uptime, but also better insights into where new technology infrastructure will be most effective for the business.
On June 6th, together with Enterprise Management Associates, we’ll discuss the transformative trends and technologies shaping IT and business today. We’ll also show how CA Technologies and Cisco are working together to help our customers accelerate innovation by cost effectively ensuring quality-of-service and an optimum customer experience – especially for new applications hosted in unified datacenter and delivered across a truly borderless network. During this session you’ll gain valuable insights into how organizations can:
• Leverage Cisco UCS platforms to better support the delivery of new virtualized cloud services the business is demanding
• Maintain and exceed service levels, manage performance and ensure Cisco UCS compute power is there when the business needs it
• Proactively manage the performance of tier 1 applications, virtualized services and infrastructure to increase ROI and accelerate time-to-value of Cisco investments
• Deliver real-time visibility and historical analysis into bandwidth consumption and application response times to drive business performance improvements
• Provide extensible, value-added services including voice and video quality-of-experience management

Cisco and VMware are working together to support the implementation of simplified data center. Integrated Management solutions for the virtualized data center are critical to the success of driving operational simplifcation.
Attend this webinar to:
o Learn how Cisco UCS Service Profiles and vSphere Auto Deploy provides the most rapid and simplified means of deploying new resources
o Understand architecturally how UCS Manager integrates with VMware vCenter, vCenter Orchestrator and vCenter Log Insight
o Look at multiple data center Management use cases and benefits from deploying the integrated solutions
According to a recent Cisco customer poll, 50% are interested in deploying cloud with over 25% having already adopted, while Europe grows at a very fast pace as well. Many companies move toward the cloud and virtualization because of the mobility, business agility and operational simplicity it provides.
Join special guest John Voss, Cisco Solution Product Manager, as he reviews the latest in the Cisco Unified Computing Express (UCS Express) a converged networking and virtualization infrastructure integrated into a single platform for running applications that can’t be centralized.
UCS also enables consolidation in the data center, and is an ideal way to introduce virtualization into branch office environments.
Visual Network Systems, a member of the Cisco Developer Network, will also discuss how to deliver a Cisco Compatible performance management application that can he hosted on UCS Express.
