  • Shepherding Digital Transformation in a Post-Covid World Recorded: Aug 20 2020 43 mins
    Dharmesh Thakker, GP, Battery Ventures & Greg Murphy, CEO, Ordr
    Shepherding Digital Transformation in a Post-Covid World:
    Post Covid-19, digital transformation is accelerating across every industry. When employees are empowered by consumerization and developers are driving adoption of open source tools, IT has a choice - slide into irrelevance or secure their role in shepherding the corporate digital landscape. Dharmesh dives into the history of how we got here and where innovation is taking place across the enterprise ecosystem, with some insights about how the Covid-19 crisis is actually aiding some innovative tech companies.

    Bringing Ordr To Address The Explosive Growth In Unmanaged and IoT Devices:
    In this session, veteran IT Industry Leader, Greg Murphy, CEO of Ordr, Inc, will speak to the rapid growth of unmanaged and IoT Devices across enterprise networks. These devices can’t be secured or managed like normal desktops, laptops and servers, typically cannot be patched or taken out of service. Threat actors have recognized this challenge and are actively targeting this new “endpoint”.
    Ordr, the leader in enterprise IoT and unmanaged devices, has built industry’s first AI platform to discover and secure unmanaged and IoT devices. First, Ordr starts with high fidelity visibility and classification of IoT devices. Next, Ordr’s Flow Genome maps each device’s unique, communications patterns and profiles exactly how it should communicate and behave. Then Ordr proactively creates Zero Trust segmentation policies and enforces them on networking and security infrastructure to only allow these “sanctioned communications.”
    All of this is done in an agentless and automated fashion. Ordr is deployed and proven in some of the largest and most complex IoT environments in the world today.
  • Connecting Israeli Cybersecurity Technology with Global End Markets Recorded: Aug 20 2020 42 mins
    John Brennan Partner, YL Ventures & Avi Shua CEO, Orca Security
    How can the cybersecurity industry marry the unparalleled concentration of technical talent in Israel with the burning business needs of enterprise customers? As a US-based seed stage investor in Israeli cybersecurity, John will share where he is spending most of his time and where there is strong overlap of customer need and entrepreneurial talent in trending areas of cybersecurity. He will also talk about how YL Ventures aims to bring value to both the Israeli & U.S. cybersecurity ecosystems through its concentrated style of investing and its hands-on customer-centric approach to the market.

    Managing the IT security posture for on-prem networks is an unstable three-legged stool consisting of:

    The breadth of asset coverage
    The depth of insights into each asset
    The friction in deploying tools to accomplish the above
    We take it for granted that stabilizing one leg of the stool comes at the sacrifice of one or more of the others.
    Does the same equation hold true to cloud environments? Yes, but only if we carry our biases from the physical world. If we simply adapt on-prem security approaches to the cloud then we’ve failed to extract the capabilities of the cloud.
    Utilizing its patent-pending SideScanning™ technology, Orca provides workload-level security for AWS, Azure, and GCP without the gaps in coverage and operational friction of agents and network scanners. After an instant-on, read-only, and impact-free integration to the cloud provider, Orca detects vulnerabilities, malware, misconfigurations, lateral movement risk, weak and leaked passwords, and unsecured high-risk data - then prioritizes risk based on environmental context.

  • Observability Needs AIOps Recorded: Aug 19 2020 32 mins
    Phil Tee, CEO, Moogsoft
    The digital infrastructure -- distributed, ephemeral, dynamic -- has become the economy’s foundation, so ensuring its availability and reliability is essential. However, legacy IT tools fall short at this task. What’s the solution? In this session, Moogsoft CEO Phil Tee will explain that for full visibility into modern IT environments, Ops teams must marry observability with AIOps.

This key capability in the new cloud-native Moogsoft Express product brings the Moogsoft AIOps Platform into complex CI/CD environments where digital services are created and maintained.
    Attend Tee’s session and learn how observability with AIOps:

    Boosts IT productivity
    Helps DevOps and SREs innovate more and operate less
    Keeps CI/CD pipelines agile
    Unlocks true operational visibility
    Ensures uptime of key digital services
    Delivers immediate business value

  • Scale Up and Scale Out for Monster VMs in vSphere 7 Recorded: Aug 19 2020 33 mins
    Allen Clingerman Chief Technology Strategist, PowerEdge Server Workloads, NA Channel, Dell Technologies
    VMWare 7 is the most advanced and highly performant version of VMWare ever released. The core Hypervisor has been upgraded to support more hosts per cluster, more VMs per Host and more CPUs per Host than ever thought possible. In addition to the increases in available ‘horsepower’, the core architectures of vMotion and DRS have been re-designed and optimized to support massive VMs hosting every type of workload, database or multi-tier application.
    Even large, monolithic historically Scale Up only applications can run on ESXi 7. In addition, it supports new persistent memory technology from Intel which opens up unheralded performance and cost benefits to in memory database environments. This new capability requires a rethinking of the datacenter to one that’s more standardized, modern and flexible to support applications and workloads across 1,2 and specifically 4 socket server designs.
    Join us for a discussion around these new technologies and why mainstream 4S servers are the new modern building block for VMWare 7 PODs!
