Hi [[ session.user.profile.firstName ]]

2018 RI Planning for AWS and Azure

As 2017 comes to a close, you may have budget that falls under “use it or lose it.” If so, consider purchasing a credit towards discounted Reserved Instances for 2018 and beyond! RIs from AWS and more recently Microsoft Azure are a great way to save up to 75% compared to On Demand rates, as long as you know you’ll have a long-term need. You can use that end-of-year budget surplus to make an up-front payment towards a one or three year commitment, making your monthly cloud spend much less.

In this webinar, attendees will:
-Learn how to decide between the various types of RIs including Standard and Convertible
-Understand the terms and payment options
-Explore the tools available to make informed recommendations

  • Cloud Leaders Tour 2018: Security Automation & Orchestration with AWS Cloud Recorded: Apr 5 2018 29 mins
    Tim Sandage Senior Security Partner Strategist, AWS
    Governments, enterprises and organizations are striving to keep up with the current threat landscape. Security and compliance of regulated workloads rely on too many manual processes, a lack of resources, skills and budgets.

    Security and risk management leaders continue to labor over how they secure current, legacy and cloud resources within their limited constraints. This Cloud Leaders session introduces the concept of Security Automation and Orchestration (SAO) used for constraining, tracking, publishing continuous security configurations, integration, deployments and treatments which can be certified against common security frameworks.

    The result enables cloud engineers and security practitioners to design, architect and implement automation in an AWS customer account to automatically enforce security and compliance requirements.

  • Cloud Leaders Tour 2018: Security as Code Recorded: Apr 4 2018 61 mins
    Andrew Plato, Founder & CEO of Anitian
    You already know the benefits of the cloud: agility, scalability, even security. Security can be even easier in the cloud than an on-premise environment. But can cloud security become a performance advantage?

    When you integrate automation with cloud security, things start to get weird. Security, compliance, and risk management suddenly change from oppressive time sinks that infuriate leadership into something radically transformative. However, getting there isn’t simple. You can’t simply forklift your NGFW drop it into an EC2 container and call it a day. You have to change not only your controls, but your context. This means new techniques, new tools, and new resources. It means security is code.

    In our Cloud Leaders Denver 2018 keynote presentation, Andrew Plato—the founder and CEO of the oldest security intelligence company in the nation—will explore the inherent security of the cloud and how it can be combined with automation to truly transform your business.
