  • Beyond the WAN: Networking the Enterprise Datacenter to the Cloud Mar 23 2017 6:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Jim Davis, 451 Research; Josh Snowhorn, CyrusOne; Ramsey El-Fakir, Fi-Tek
    Enterprises are using a variety of cloud and SaaS services to remain competitive, but can lose out when their network architecture either becomes a deployment bottleneck or impedes application performance. Network interconnection has often taken a back seat to other issues in application design and deployment, but enterprises should not continue to ignore this critical component of infrastructure.

    In this webinar, we examine how today’s interconnection services can break what used to be the tight links between distance, capacity and cost. Indeed, a rethink of networking strategies in the datacenter can help unlock more agility and efficiency in digital enterprise transformation efforts.

    This session will look at issues affecting enterprise use of datacenter networking services, including:

    -Changing cloud consumption patterns by enterprises, employees, partners and customers
    -The different types of interconnection offered by multi-tenant datacenters, including datacenter interconnect, and cloud exchange
    -Real world experiences of enterprises who have leveraged interconnection to solve application performance and availability issues
    -How datacenter interconnect services can be used for disaster recovery, enhanced application performance, and access to partner and vendor ecosystems

  • Risks Posed By Legacy Authentication Recorded: Jan 18 2017 47 mins
    Garrett Bekker of 451 Research & Martin Gontovnikas of Auth0
    Username and password are not enough. So why do most companies still use them?

    There’s a Technology Basics White Paper first published in 2002 entitled “Username and Password – A Dying Security Model.” This paper documents the HIGH risk level associated with legacy authentication (using username and password) and predicted that secure access methods using Biometrics, Single Sign On (SSO), One Time Password Tokens and Multi-Factor Authentication would quickly replace the use of traditional passwords. Fast forward to a decade and a half later and the majority of companies are still using username and password authentication. We all agree that legacy authentication is not good enough, so why do most companies still use them?

    For many, the path to modern authentication seems difficult and expensive, while others worry about the impact on user experience. Join us for a webinar where we will explore this paradox and discuss practices for making secure, modern authentication fast and easy for developers and simple and frictionless for users.
