The recovery expectations of users and organizations is changing and their tolerance for downtime is lower than ever. IT professionals can no longer rely on the traditional backup and recovery process to meet these new requirements. Primary storage needs to do more, and simple LUN-based replication is not going to get the job done. Instead data centers need to look for primary storage that has advanced replication capabilities and can integrate with multiple hypervisors and existing data protection solutions to create a holistic disaster recovery strategy.Read more >

Microservices within a distributed environment is nothing new. But nowadays, when you design a microservices environment, you have to take more into consideration than just the software itself. Designing a distributed application within stateless and immutable environment can be challenging. In this session, we'll share our experimentation with SPA, monitoring, architecture, services design, release management, systems deployment, job executions, authentication, and more. We'll also share our experience splitting a 5M line-of-code app into more than 300 microservices running on OpenShift and Docker. We won't share an absolute set of rules, but what worked for us and what didn't.Read more >
You’ve heard a lot about using artificial intelligence and machine learning to change the odds in your favor in cyber-attacks. Unfortunately it turns out that the bad-guys have great AI too, and with each click they can stealthily adapt, morphing into a new hard-to-detect form. But what if we apply learning in real time, on every endpoint, and allow the endpoints to collaborate to identify the threat?
In this talk Simon Crosby, co-founder and CTO of Bromium, will explore how this new approach can give defenders the edge in an era of targeted attacks.

Over the past few years, outsourcing business functions to vendors has been on the rise. In fact, there are more third-party relationships today than ever before. However, as the number of supplier relationships grows, so grows the amount of risk those suppliers pose. And in today’s hyper-connected landscape, cyber risk has taken center stage when it comes to vendor risk.
Join former CIO, Kevin Roden, and BitSight’s Senior Customer Success Manager, Julia Grunewald, on Wednesday, February 22nd at 1pm ET, as they discuss traditional and emerging vendor risk management (VRM) tactics.
In this webinar you’ll learn:
- How VRM has traditionally been handled
- Why traditional strategies alone aren’t enough
- Advice on how to effectively and efficiently mitigate cyber risk

Threat Actors figured out long ago that automating and orchestrating their attacks gives them the ability to conduct their campaigns more efficiently and effectively. The byproduct of these automated attacks is a high volume of events and alerts meant to overwhelm enterprises. Enterprises conducting predominantly manual investigations and remediations will never be able to scale to the level of those attackers utilizing automated tactics.
Join us on February 21, 2017 at 1 PM PT and learn how to quickly and easily
•Understand the scope of automation necessary to combat mass campaigns from attackers
•Understand which automations can be accomplished with the fastest ROI
•Understand how,you can automate and apply internal context, 3rd party intelligence, campaign data, and investigations
•Deploy powerful and proven shortcuts to integrate with alert sources and enforcement systems

Protecting against data loss is a key focus of any organisation’s information security program. However it is not always that easy to put long term initiatives in place with consistent monitoring and response effectiveness to mitigate against advanced attacks where intellectual property may be the target.
In this webinar Stuart and David will explain how effective incident response, long term monitoring and threat intelligence can help deal with data protection against advanced persistent threats (APTs) in this modern age of cyber warfare.
The sad truth is that Invaders are trying to breach your defenses every day. With five out of every six large organizations being targeted by advanced attackers, protecting your data is a smart way to keep you from becoming tomorrow’s headline.
So what does data protection mean? A comprehensive approach allows the right people to access the right data, anywhere, by controlling access, monitoring its flow, and keeping it out of the wrong hands.
We will explain how Symantec technology addresses this approach and how you will benefit from:
•Grant and ensure access only for authorized users with strong, multi-factor authentication, on any device, including BYOD.
•Watching over data wherever it lives—in the cloud, on premise, in motion, and at rest.
•Preventing data loss with unified policy controls to encrypt or block vulnerable information before it leaves the gate.
Over the last few months, cyberattacks have dominated the news, creating uncertainty about how best to protect the value small business owners have worked to create.
