  • The Role of API Management & Governance in Digital Business Strategy Oct 10 2018 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Carl Lehmann, 451 Research & Andrew Slivker, Nevatech
    Hyper-competition and digital-first initiatives are forcing organizations to reconsider how they do business. ‘Digital transformation’ has emerged to engage customers, improve efficiencies, and fend off threats from rivals. It’s driving the need to rethink application design that delivers information in context and automates tasks across diverse digital devices and touchpoints.

    APIs have emerged as integration enablers, and their value and proliferation require they be managed as strategic assets. This calls for a lifecycle management approach to API development in combination with intelligent run-time capabilities of an enterprise-class API architecture. Lifecycle management must include strong governance over use that can track and audit changes, policies, and dependencies critical to enterprise security, governance, risk, and compliance (GRC) practices where monitoring is a critical run-time function for secure and successful API platform implementations.

    In this webinar Carl Lehmann, principal analyst at 451 Research joins Nevatech to discuss the business and technical considerations for API management and governance within a broader context of digital business strategy by:

    •Describing the factors of planning digital transformation strategy and using the run-time environment to create competitive advantage
    •Identifying the critical technology enablers needed for execution including API platforms
    •Defining the lifecycle management and governance practices required of APIs as accelerants to digital business initiatives.
    C-Level executives, enterprise architects, developers, integration and API professionals alike will learn how to reconsider their integration strategies and toolchains to become core enabling assets for their emerging digital business’.
  • The Emperor has No Network: Risks of a Network-Centric Cloud Security Approach Oct 9 2018 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Fernando Montenegro, 451 Research & Dan Hubbard, Lacework
    Modern enterprises are rapidly moving to the cloud. Unfortunately, many are still using a network-centric security approach which is putting them at risk.

    Even with the cost, efficiency, and business capabilities the cloud provides, it can still perplex those responsible for management of security. Shared responsibility, automation, ownership of duties — these are among the unique aspects of security in the cloud that can often be confusing. When understood, however, they can be used as a critical advantage for organizations that need to secure workloads and data in their cloud environments.

    Join Fernando Montenegro of 451 Research and Dan Hubbard of Lacework for this webinar about how to move away from a network-centric mindset and adopt a cloud approach to be successful in modern environments.
  • The Time is Ripe for Proactive Security Oct 9 2018 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Scott Crawford of 451 Research, Mike Mcintyre of Panaseer and Rob Hyde of Schroeders
    Security is unique among technology fields. Where developers can advance toward defined goals, security’s agenda is set by an intelligent adversary, who can choose the most opportune targets among a host of potential exposures – and the way attackers target those exposures can change daily. Defenders, on the other hand, must do their best to defend their most serious exposures and keep them current with limited resources.

    This would seem to be priority number one for organizations: the proactive preparation and protection of the business against attack. It’s a fundamental principle espoused by the likes of Edwards Deming: it costs far less to fix an issue before it’s exposed to the public at large, than after it becomes a public problem.

    And yet, defenders have struggled with making it happen. Attacks continue to wreak havoc, and the result for many has been a tacit acknowledgement of this failure in the disproportionate spend on firefighting (monitoring, detection and response), when fireproofing – preparation and protection – may be the more strategic and economically sound investment.

    Why has this fireproofing been so hard, and why do so many organizations struggle? And what’s different today that places a more effective approach to preparation and protection within reach?

    Join Scott Crawford, Research Director for Information Security with 451 Research, Mike Macintyre, Chief Data Scientist and VP Product at Panaseer, and Rob Hyde, CISO with Schroeders, to examine:

    •The real impact of failure to take a proactive approach to strategic preparation and protection
    •Four key obstacles that keep organizations from succeeding in pursuing a fireproofing strategy – and how to overcome them
    •How Schroders Cyber Security team have been able to move towards a pro-active approach and the benefits and insight gained
  • How Your Small/Mid-Sized Business Can Succeed with Mobility Oct 4 2018 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Chris Marsh of 451 Research & Jennifer Pointer of Samsung
    SMBs make up 95% of all businesses globally and employ 70% of the workforce, yet their productivity is typically lower than large enterprises. Embracing mobile is the ideal lever to improve their competitiveness, and this is indeed what is happening. SMBs are ramping up with those saying they are moving from experimenting to investing more heavily in mobile technologies jumping from 44% to 50% in just the last year.

    In this webinar you will learn:

    •Why SMBs stand to gain big from mobility and how they can succeed in their mobile journey.
    •The four stages - Starting, Organizing, Strategizing and Optimizing – that they typically pass through as they mature their capabilities
    •How to think through mobile strategy, security, governance, user engagement, processes and business model innovation.
    •The pitfalls to avoid and questions to answer at each stage to get the most out of mobile.
  • The Evolution of Endpoint Detection and Response Oct 4 2018 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Fernando Montenegro, 451 Research and Ed Metcalf of Cylance
    Endpoint Detection and Response products were introduced to the market in the early 2010’s and have focused on detecting signs of a compromised system by recording behaviors then alerting humans. Unfortunately, the scale and pace of attacks often overwhelm even the best security analysts and teams.

    As technology improves, new approaches to performing endpoint detection and response emerge. Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning are new technologies that have been succesfuly applied to the traditional anti-virus problem of detecting “infected” or malicious files without the need for manually created signatures. It is now possible to extend this technology to the problem of detecting, and preventing attacks based on the new techniques that do not rely on infected files, but rather on the malicious behavior of systems regaurdless of the technique used for the attack.

    Join Fernando Montenegro of 451 Research and Ed Metcalf of Cylance for this webinar about how endpoint detection and response can evolve by incorporating newer capabilities, and better support defenses in the modern threat environment.

  • Why It’s Time to Make Network Traffic Analysis A First-Class Citizen Sep 25 2018 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Eric Ogren, 451 Research & Brian Dye, Corelight
    Since nearly all cyberattacks must cross the network it’s an essential source of truth for threat hunters and incident responders, yet many organizations today have limited network traffic analysis capabilities.

    Why? The root of the problem lies in common sources of network data, which are difficult to analyze at scale. Security operators often find themselves stuck between the unwieldy firehose of full traffic capture and the frustrating information desert of network logs like Netflow that offer only a minimal amount of detail. Simply put, it’s either too much, or too little network data.

    A goldilocks alternative exists, however, in the Bro Network Security Monitor. This open source framework transforms network traffic into high-fidelity logs that summarize activity on the wire at less than 1% the size of full traffic capture and can automate traffic analysis tasks via Bro’s unique scripting language. Thousands of organizations rely on Bro to achieve comprehensive, scalable network traffic analysis and Corelight makes Bro easy and ready to deploy at enterprise scale. In this webinar, Eric Ogren, Senior Analyst at 451 Research, and Brian Dye, CPO at Corelight, will demonstrate how Bro can help organizations achieve comprehensive, scalable network traffic analysis and accelerate their threat hunting and incident response workflows.

  • MDM as an enabler for Digital Transformation Recorded: Sep 13 2018 53 mins
    Matt Aslett, 451 Research & Shyam Potta, Riversand
    Master Data Management has been around for many years, and has historically earned itself something of a bad name as a silo that is the preserve of the IT department, and – when badly applied and enforced – a bottleneck that slows innovation. However, there are fresh and new approaches to consider that mean that - when properly applied and enforced – MDM can serve as the basis for enterprises becoming more data-driven as part of digital transformation initiatives. For example, baking MDM into new enterprise applications turns one of the traditional criticisms of MDM on its head by directly linking MDM to the delivery of business value and directly involving the users most likely to benefit from it.

    Join Matt Aslett, Research Vice President, Data Platforms and Analytics at 451 Research and Shyam Potta, Vice President of Product Management at Riversand as they explore how MDM can help establish data as a foundation for digital transformation efforts.

    In this webinar you will learn:
