When a disruptive technology emerges, it is often met with skepticism. A good case in point is ForeScout CounterACT®. It’s gaining a lot of traction in cybersecurity circles, with more than 2,000 large and medium enterprises and government agencies worldwide using the product as of April 2016. But for those IT professionals who might think its capabilities are too good to be true, ForeScout enlisted Miercom, a leading independent testing and consultancy, to provide unbiased, hands-on testing of CounterACT capabilities. Miercom’s findings are what this webinar is all about.
Please join us as Miercom President and CEO Rob Smithers talks about his lab’s findings with regard to CounterACT’s:
• Visibility (discovery, classification and compliance assessment) of network-connected corporate, BYOD, guest and IoT endpoints without use of agents or previous device knowledge
• Detection and full classification of hundreds of endpoints in seconds
• Policy-based control of devices by enabling IT staff to grant the appropriate level of network access to people, applications and devices
• Ability to integrate with leading network infrastructure and endpoint protection technologies
There is an assumption that the more you spend on security technology, the more secure you will be. However, it is evident from the media that even though organisations are spending many on security products they are still being breached. Majority of organisations are falling back on 'historical, layered defence strategies’ with the tendency to think that by merely upgrading software and building up walls, their organisation is safe, but what if the attacker dug underneath the wall?. Does this demonstrate they are spending effectively and keeping their organisation secure?
In this webinar, we will discuss why organisations don't need to spend more on security to be better protected but need to spend wisely with the budget they already have. Organisations continually need to think about how they readjust and refocus on strategies that enable them to be resilient and recover from a cyber-attack. The webinar will cover:
Spend vs Resiliency – is it proportionate?
Strategy for protecting what really matters
Focusing on the 5% of alerts that really matter
Join Richard Turner, FireEye President of EMEA, as he continues his discussion around taking the ‘Risk message of Cyber Secuirty to the board’
With patches, threats and changes to your network taking place on a daily basis it is vital to understand if you are managing risk effectively. Vulnerability scanning is often a useful method to establish a vulnerability baseline across the network which is then tested on a regular basis to understand variance.
Vulnerability Scanning is also required for a number of key regulatory compliance standards in both the public and private sector making it an even more crucial element of an organisation’s security operations.
During this 30 minute webcast, Lee Lawson, Head of Security Testing and Response at Dell SecureWorks, will cover the following topics:
•Vulnerability scanning drivers
•Pros and cons for different vulnerability scanning solutions
•Best fit solution for specific regulatory compliance standards

A recent poll by developer GFI Software found that small business hesitate to use cloud services. The challenge seems to be how to communicate the benefits to this large target group.
What role can the traditional SLA play in this communication, or do we need something new?
In this presentation Hans looks at the traditional SLA according to ITIL and tries to investigate where it should be adapted to suit cloud service description for “the masses”.
