Case study: Defending a defense company with Ansible Automation

As cyber attackers continue to focus more and more on government agencies and their partners, the stakes keep increasing. Whether a rogue attacker or a nation state, these organizations hold both sensitive data and the keys to critical infrastructure. Defending the global networks that keep these organizations running is critical and complex. In this session, we’ll provide insights into how a leading defense contractor uses automation to ensure the secure configuration and maintenance of their network’s switches and routers. With thousands of devices, the challenge was daunting, but with the credentials for the network devices already being managed and secured through a strong privileged access management program, we’ll discuss how the Ansible team was able to rapidly develop playbooks to use these credentials to automate the configuration process, and rapidly rotate device passwords based on policy or an incident. This approach not only helped to secure the network and the data passing through it, but also to more easily meet audit and compliance requirements--a win/win. Throughout this session, we’ll discuss all the challenges facing this organization, how using a combination of privileged access management and Red Hat Ansible Tower provided significant business benefits, and tips and tricks on how other organizations can do the same.

  • The impact of open source automation on innovation May 27 2021 6:00 pm UTC 30 mins
    Glenn O'Donnell VP, Research Director, Forrester.
    Automation is at the core of firms’ technology strategies across all verticals and industries; effective businesses need technology that adapts and scales quickly, reliably, and economically. Getting started with simple, tactical automation software to begin automating processes is easy, but using it at scale and working on higher value automation that spans teams, geographies, and across management area presents challenges. What's more, leadership teams and implementers often don't see eye to eye, causing struggles from prioritization through implementation. Join us and guest speaker Glenn O'Donnell from Forrester to explore how leadership teams and implementers are misaligned, how to improve this alignment, and what benefits may be achieved by doing so.

    Tomas Gonzalez, Synopsys | Vijay Arungurikai, Red Hat
    There are a number of misconceptions circulating about container security. The most common misconception is that, since your applications are in containers, they are totally secure. In reality, applications are your biggest attack surface—and that risk is present in every single layer of the stack.

  • Data Resilience for Kubernetes May 20 2021 6:00 pm UTC 40 mins
    Naveen Chhabra, Forrester | Pete Brey, Red Hat | Venkat Kolli, Red Hat
    Increasingly, organizations are realizing Kubernetes can deliver agility and efficiency benefits for not only their application development but also for their critical enterprise applications running in production. However, with this trend comes additional key considerations which must be addressed. One of the most significant of these concerns is data resiliency for not just the applications themselves, but also the data they produce and consume, as well as the underlying Kubernetes infrastructure.

    Attendees will learn about these trends and what the key considerations are as they plan to deploy their enterprise applications on Kubernetes in production. Specifically, we will look at data protection approaches ranging from snapshots, clones, backup, and recovery to address the requirements for data resilience for Kubernetes applications. In addition to these approaches, we’ll also discuss how to handle Kubernetes-unique namespaces, application contexts, and cluster configuration in a manner which allows organizations to protect their existing data protection infrastructure investments.
