How Cloud Computing Can Rain on Your Security Strategy

Patrick Sweeney; SonicWALL, VP of Product Management
The ease-of-use, high scalability and low maintenance of cloud computing are just some of the benefits that are driving adoption of this new trend within the enterprise. Gartner confirms this in a recent report* that revealed that cloud computing rates as the second highest technology priority in 2010, behind only virtualization.

But IT managers need more specifics. What should I move to the cloud? What should I not move to the cloud? What are the risks and what are the rewards?

As promising as cloud computing is, you need to keep in mind that the cloud alternative approach for delivering IT services are accompanied by a number of significant challenges that could threaten the stability of your security strategy.

In this session we will examine the security, compliance and performance concerns associated with cloud computing. We will take a look about how you can utilize a dynamic security solution to attribute policy, limit liability and improve performance of your cloud-based technology investments. We will recommend what should and should not be moved, and why.

  • A lot has changed in the way we communicate for business. A decade ago, most organizations had employees who came to the office every day, used desktop computers and desk phones, and stopped communicating for work when they went home.

    Today, people communicate for work anywhere, anytime, and on any device. Per Forrester, sixty-six percent of employees use two or more mobile devices for work. And according to Frost & Sullivan, nearly 25 percent of employees work from home or the road. What’s more, the desk phone is not the only business device. Based on a RingCentral survey, 35 percent of employees are using their mobile phones for work even when they are in the office. And nearly 80 percent of employees text for business, with 32 percent reporting that they’ve even closed a business deal via text.

    Even with these undeniable business behavior changes, the vast majority of companies haven’t optimized their communications infrastructure for mobile workforces or BYOD.

    Join this webinar to get ahead of the pack and learn the benefits of a cloud communications solution that supports the new world of work.

    •Understand the trends driving mobility and behavior changes in the work place, with Melanie Turek, VP of Research for Enterprise Communication & Collaboration, Frost & Sullivan.
    •Get the real story from a business that has addressed their mobility needs first hand from Adam Fishman, director of growth and operations for Lyft, a community ride-sharing service.
    •Hear how a cloud communications solution is addressing several challenges businesses face in the new work world from Nisha Ahluwalia, VP of product marketing at RingCentral.
  • We all want our families and homes to be safe with the convenience of remote monitoring, but do these smart home security devices really make our families safer or put them at more risk by inviting easier access to our homes electronically via insecure Internet of Things? In a follow-up to HP’s 2014 report on the Internet of (Insecure) Things we explore the security of popular off-the-shelf connected Home Security Systems and discuss various testing techniques we used in our study along with recommendations for manufacturers, developers and consumers.
  • Mobile is changing the way we work in the enterprise. Today’s workforce is demanding the ability to access and share business files from any device. In this webinar learn why Fortune 5000 companies select Syncplicity to achieve the promise of mobile productivity and solve the “Dropbox” problem.
  • From unobtrusive advanced malware detection technologies to automated threat response and actionable mobile-friendly dashboard – manage security from any device, any time, ESET will present new solutions for securing your endpoints and new ways to manage them.

Join CA Technologies and Microsoft for an interactive discussion, moderated by Joe Clabby, President, Clabby Analytics, on the evolving role of cloud innovation and z Systems in today’s new application economy to help IT derive real business value through operational and cost efficiencies.

    Your tape and disk systems are like trusty friends – and you have relied on these dependable storage media to backup, restore, archive and recover z Systems data. And with your organizations’ digital information growing from gigabytes to petabytes seemingly overnight, what options are available to datacenters when technology leapfrogs in a seemingly regular cadence? Buy more hardware?

    Don’t be forever caught in “catch up” mode when it comes to your storage infrastructure. Attend this webcast and discover how CA Cloud Storage for System z, featuring Microsoft Azure, simplifies the process of storing mainframe data in the cloud and help lower data center storage costs to pennies per GB. Hear compelling ROI cases how re-envisioning your existing storage methodologies can help you store more and spend less – yes, it’s possible!
  • The game has changed. Due to cost savings, and the privacy and mobility needs of employees, in just a few short years companies have loosened the mobile device leash. Enterprises are now shifting from traditional “company owned” devices, to allowing “Bring Your Own Device” in the workplace. According to Gartner, by 2017 fifty percent of companies will actually force employee to bring their own device to work.

    But if you’re tasked with securing devices, how do you accommodate BYOD? Where do you start and what kinds of security solutions should you be looking for?

    In this webinar, Chris Hines, Product Manager at Bitglass will teach you how to balance the needs of IT admins and employees when it comes to securing your mobile world.

    From new ways of designing and manufacturing products or delivering services, to enhancing business processes and revolutionising the way we learn, work, communicate and play, technology is becoming more embedded in all aspects of our business and personal lives.

    Despite the complex infrastructure and designs on which this has been built, familiarity often breeds a sense of complacency where things are just expected to work flawlessly.

    As the third platform gathers momentum, the interplay between the four elements - mobile, cloud, social, big data - will bring additional security challenges – for example, mobile/cloud developments, social/big data developments, etc. – new security challenges will emerge as the elements realign in new ways.
    There is no doubt that the IT landscape is undergoing fundamental changes. The third platform (mobile, cloud, social, big data) will bring a far more interconnected world; people, data and applications will be more than ever connected through the four elements. Security challenges will be at the forefront of these changes – exciting times are ahead. Those entrusted with security responsibilities are going to be challenged like never before. And security innovation will be rewarded enormously for those with courage and foresight, through the opportunities that are emerging. Lets take a look at how security is bought and managed so that change can be delivered with confidence.
  • Solving Your Biggest Network Security Challenge Recorded: Oct 8 2014 52 mins
    Today’s ideal data center should be agile, scalable, manageable, flexible, cost-effective and – most importantly – secure against today’s prolific threat environment.
    Enterprises, carriers and ISPs require network security solutions that can meet massive data and capacity demands. This means the network security layer must also be highly extensible to support the largest data center bandwidth consumptions. Adding additional security compute resources should ideally be a matter of easily adding more firewall to your system at the best price to performance ratio and TCO.
    Join our discussion as we cover how to scale a Next Generation Firewall (NGFW) and:
    •Gain network simplicity, n-1 resiliency and superior security efficacy
    •Go beyond 100Gbps of deep packet inspection (DPI) at near-zero latency
    •Get the best price to performance ratio and lowest TCO
