Container technologies are still a relatively small part of the overall cloud and application portability market, but that is changing. Use of containers is exploding at an estimated annual growth rate of 40%.
Containers provide some very compelling benefits especially in terms of speed and cost savings. But, like with any new tool, there are security concerns that must be addressed.
Join us for this special webcast on May 17 where we will discuss the security challenges that arise from using containers, how to assess the security of the container and container images in order to reap the full benefits of this exciting technology.
Today is the day that GDPR changes things substantially in protecting customer data, affecting businesses that handle, store or pass data of European Citizens both in and outside of Europe. It’s a huge undertaking with comprehensive and extensive compliance requirements and as it takes effect inevitably there will be stops and starts, legal and logistical challenges and hefty fines for non-compliance.

Security operations teams are modern-day detectives, combing through clues to thwart cyberthreats. But the deluge of alerts from disparate technologies, manual processes and multiple consoles often hinder teams from building the story they need to respond to truly malicious activity.
Join Symantec and Siemplify on Wedensday, May 23, to see how intelligence-driven orchestration helps SOCs overcome these challenges by enabling deeper, higher quality investigations and expediting incident response.
During this session you’ll learn:
- The vital role context plays in security operations and how it powers incident investigation and response
- How threat intelligence and security orchestration provide deeper insights to streamline alert validation, incident prioritization and response
- How Siemplify and Symantec DeepSight Intelligence integrate, drive a standardized workflow and improve security incident response

Enterprises migrating workloads from traditional data centers to Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) providers are discovering that a "lift-and-shift" approach to security doesn't work. Traditional on-premises security tools do not scale with workloads and storage in dynamic cloud environments or support the continuous integration and delivery (CI/CD) workflows central to modern DevOps practices. And while some workloads are well suited to the public cloud, others often remain on-premises or in private clouds, necessitating multiple security solutions and multiple consoles generating alerts. An efficient, single console security solution is needed to protect workloads and storage against advanced threats and malware across today's heterogeneous hybrid cloud environments.
What is a hybrid cloud and how is it different from securing a traditional data center?
Why is the development of applications for the cloud different and how does it impact security?
What are some solutions currently available for protecting my hybrid cloud workloads and how do they do it?

Cybersecurity is earning its seat in the boardroom with so much attention on the impacts and destruction a cyber attack or incident can have on a hospital's bottom line, or even worse, a patient. Yet healthcare providers continue to lag behind other industries when it comes to investing in cybersecurity with 74% dedicating 6% or less to IT security. So what will it take to fill the gaps that are still looming when it comes to an organization's risk management strategy?
Join Axel Wirth, Distinguished Technical Architect, Symantec, as he shares key findings from HIMSS Analytics and Symantec's 2018 Healthcare IT Security & Risk Management Study.
- Healthcare's shift from a compliance mindset to a risk management approach.
- Which cybersecurity frameworks are gaining momentum within the industry and why.
- How healthcare IT leaders are addressing security while navigating the changing technology landscape to include cloud and medical devices.

In the typical enterprise, employees use hundreds of apps that significantly expand the endpoint attack surface-whether IT is aware, or not. Clearly, apps are a fact of life and employees will use them as they see fit. The best defense is application whitelisting, but attackers show us otherwise: In fact, all 10 of the Top 10 attacker groups use whitelisted software to infect endpoints. And with long patching cycles and insufficient training, IT security teams need something more.
However, a win-win approach exists so that users can benefit from any productivity app they want without compromising the security of the entire infrastructure.
Join us for a first-look webinar into Symantec Endpoint Protection Hardening, whose isolation capabilities allow end users to download and use any app safely.
Join us to learn how you can:
- Discover and assess the risk of applications on your endpoints automatically.
- Shield known good applications to prevent vulnerability exploits.
- Isolate suspicious and malicious applications to stop privileged operations automatically.
In addition, we'll show you SEP Hardening in action with a demo that showcases how you can keep your endpoints safe and your employees productive.
