Bay Dynamics commissioned a study with Osterman Research to find out how prepared the large retailers were for dealing with cyber risk from hiring large temporary workers. The study revealed some surprising findings including how little organizations knew about their high value systems and the type of access granted to temporary workers. In fact, almost 40% of retailers don’t know which systems their temporary employees access in their organization.
Please join us on Thursday, January 21, 2016 at 10:00 am PT for a live Bay Dynamics webinar as Humphrey Christian, VP Product Management discusses the findings from this report, and its implications across different verticals. The webinar will highlight best practices to address the report findings and will demonstrate how our Risk Fabric Platform can help build effective cyber risk reduction programs for enterprises.

It’s been since before the turn of the century that Category 5e was ratified and 1000BASE-T was developed to transport data from the closet to the office. For many years, 5e was “good enough” and with no foreseeable need other than physical robustness to consider a higher grade of cabling, many continued to install this cable. However, the enterprise infrastructure is starting to bulge at the seams and some cracks are beginning to appear. In an attempt to ease these wireless technology implementations, silicon manufactures are experimenting with transmitting 2.5 Gbps and 5 Gbps over Category 5e and Category 6 cabling respectively. Their intent is to utilize existing cabling infrastructure to allow for a simple upgrade path by replacing only the electronics at the ends of the cable. But this is just a temporary solution for an ever-growing issue with wireless. There are also significant technical hurdles involved in increasing the bandwidth by a factor of 2.5 and certainly by a factor of five (5). Remember, the existing cabling was designed to standards developed more than 15 years ago. Consider too, there are other standards committee initiatives working to triple the amount of power transmitted via PoE technology as well. Lastly, the benefit of 2.5 Gbps and 5 Gbps could actually be to support future desktop applications, and not wireless. In so doing, you will need solutions designed to handle the additional stress of more bandwidth, and more PoE.
Topics to be discussed in this webinar include:
- Why running 2.5G and 5.0G over Cat. 5e and Cat. 6 are only bandage solutions for wireless
- The technical challenges of 2.5G and 5.0G over Cat 5e and Cat 6
- Berk-Tek provides solutions for both 2.5G and 5.0G
- 2.5G and 5.0G could be beneficial for future desktop applications
