Managed Security Services: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

We’re past the point of product pushing – that’s actually part of the problem. Selling through the fear, ‘tyranny of the urgent’, or one-off point solutions may close some deals, but it likely won’t turn one-time customers into lasting business relationships. Companies today are looking for well thought out, managed solutions, which will help them minimize cyberattack risks and stay compliant with industry and federal regulations. The question now is, are services that fill those needs worth offering for your organization? In this session we’ll take a look at the following:

- Where are enterprises struggling and what service(s) can you offer to fits their needs
- Services that could be good, but are usually poorly delivered
- Services that use to be strategic but are now just a commodity Services that your company should walk away from immediately (and things your company should quit saying)
- Should your company even be offering Managed Security Services?

  • AI-Based Anomaly Detection for Proactive Business Monitoring Mar 28 2018 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Matt Aslett of 451 Research, Greg Kuzhals of Pandora and Dr. Ira Cohen of Anodot
    Businesses are inundated with countless bytes of data in databases, data lakes, business platforms, devices, and more. Discovering negative trends and problems are an issue for every organization because every organization lacks the human resources to monitor data in real time, report on changes, and investigate the root cause relationships between business and performance. Indeed, with so many moving parts in data-driven businesses, it is practically impossible to track all the data and events manually using traditional BI tools like dashboards... you always miss something crucial, which turns into revenue loss, angry customers or brand damage...

    Are you ready to move into the future of BI and AI-driven business monitoring?

  • Beyond Hyperconverged: Software Composable Infrastructure Recorded: Mar 1 2018 47 mins
    Steven Hill of 451 Research and Tom Lyon of DriveScale
    With data center requirements rapidly evolving, there’s really no “one size fits all” solution. Shifting production demands and growing application workloads call for a dynamic infrastructure that’s as flexible as software challenges, yet that continues to prove elusive due to the limitations imposed by legacy approaches to hardware.

    An option, hyperconvergence, has proven to be an interesting alternative that combines traditional server hardware, software defined storage and virtualization that is well suited for many generalized workloads. This modular solution for modular tasks is limited by the fact that storage and compute must be scaled in lock-step. Disk resources are still physically tied to the server systems, so adding more storage requires adding more compute and vice versa. However, big data applications with big demands need more flexibility when it comes to scaling compute and storage; and DriveScale is looking to change all that.

    Please join 451 Research in a frank conversation with technology visionary Tom Lyon, Chief Scientist at DriveScale as we explore a unique and flexible model for breaking the traditional boundaries between compute and storage with Software Composable Infrastructure.

  • Reducing Security Operations Risk: Turning Small Steps into Big Victories Recorded: Feb 14 2018 48 mins
    Eric Hanselman of 451 Research and Karen Crowley of Tufin
    As security threats become increasingly more challenging, it’s important that organizations raise their game in security operations. The manual, labor intensive traditions of the past are unscalable and too risky to keep up with infrastructure complexity and meet the compliance requirements that demanded today. Firewall rule sets have ballooned to the point of unmanageability and complex network configurations hide/mask security lapses. But at the same time, a leap to comprehensive automation can seem risky and expensive.

    This webinar will dig into a measured way to gain insight into as-built networks and leverage that visibility to infer policy and validate controls. Small steps can be taken to begin to tackle the mess that most operations teams face and allow them to build and move towards policy-driven environments that span on-premises and cloud resources in ways that manage risk. Abstracting and coordinating controls and gaining situational awareness will improve your overall processes and lead to continuous compliance capabilities.

    Join 451 Research and Tufin to sort out the first steps towards reducing operations risk.
