Living in a digital world means information is always at your fingertips, residing in the applications on your phones, laptops and servers. As speed and availability of information access requirements get higher and more complex, applications must evolve to stay current.
Rapid changes in application architecture have seen applications morph from more traditional, monolithic applications with functional modules built into a single installation, to modern microsevice-based applications, that break into multiple installations, that more easily serve a wider user base. The future surely belongs to microservice-based applications, as unlike monolithic applications that are designed to run on physical servers or VMs, micro-service applications can be run on containers, and are managed by Kubernetes (K8s in short). To build, run and manage container-based microservices, you will certainly deal with K8s.
As the first graduated open-source project from CNCF, K8s are the core of the platform-as-a-service that provides automation and orchestration for micro-service applications. Many tools like Jenkins and Istio are built around K8s, to facilitate simple and faster modern application development and management.
As a long-time IaaS (HCI & SCP) player in the market, Sangfor dedicated an increasing amount of resources to PaaS development several years ago. Why are K8s so popular? And what is Sangfor’s role in the PaaS world? Join our Sangfor expert-led webinar to learn more!
Ransomware is one of, if not the biggest blight in this digital age. Many organizations are concerned about the negative impact a single ransomware attack will have on them and are doing all they can to prepare and to protect themselves for the eventual attack. However, while there are many variants of ransomware being developed every day, there are always telltale signs that can give you early warning of a ransomware threat coming your way.
Join us and learn how you can identify these early warning signs with Sangfor’s Network Detection and Response platform, Cyber Command.
We are in a constant state of virtual warfare, as threat from weaponized computer programs continues to increase steadily, raise its intelligence level, and stoop to new lows to take advantage of the digitally challenged. According to a recent study by IBM Security, data breaches cost the average company around $3.92 million, made possible by the average of 279 days businesses take to detect a data breach.
Cloudification and Network Optimization have simultaneously expanded, with more than 75% of organizations indicating they are employing a cloud-first strategy, as reported by Gartner, giving businesses the tools to operate at a higher level – and giving cyber criminals the tools to penetrate and manipulate faster and easier than ever before. It is time to stop looking back at the grim statistics of 2020 and look forward to the trends of 2021. The Gartner report "Top Strategic Technology Trends for 2021" tells us that COVID-19 has disrupted the way organizations are working and must transform to meet trends such as remote work.

Data protection and operational up-time are of critical importance since the pandemic, yet a recent study of over 500 C-level executives discovered that almost 80% of small and medium sized businesses have no data backup or disaster recovery (DR) plan in place. These networks are incredibly vulnerable to hardware failure, human error and malicious attack.
Failure to plan, is a plan to fail. There are several considerations you must take into account when choosing and deploying a disaster recovery plan. Plan for the future safety of your organization now.
The US Supreme Court ruled that interpretation of the United States Computer Frauds and Abuses Act of 1986 (CFAA) related to anyone who "intentionally accesses a computer without authorization or exceeds authorized access," was too broad and overreaching. Thus, anyone who has authorized access to computers and data cannot be held criminally liable for misuse of those resources or data. This now makes it very difficult for organizations to prosecute insider threat attacks. Organizations now need to implement and enforce ZTNA to ensure no one has more access than they need to resources or data. ZTNA limits and audits authorized access making it easier to take action against inside attackers.
In this webinar, we will discuss the US Supreme Court decision, how it affects you and how ZTNA can help you protect against insider threats.

The pandemic has dramatically changed our lives, and the global business landscape. Customer behavior has also experienced an permanent shift. This means that organizations need an enhanced their approach to transformation, to ensure they have the agility to reinvent themselves in extraordinary times.
Sangfor is here to show you how to break down silos and drive digital transformation with optimal TCO control, while debunking myths of the complexity of adoption of emerging technologies. Cloud Computing as-a-service suits application needs and secures data, making your network agile yet focused, and helping put strategies in place that can evolve quickly, and deliver growth in this post-pandemic era.
While traditional WAN topographies are still widely in use, they cause several issues to organizations focused on securing branch offices.
• Multi-point solution increases O&M complexity & cost
• Lack of end-to-end security visibility
• Difficulty defending against advanced persistent threat targeting branch offices
Branch offices are often the weakest link in your strategic cyber defense plan, yet vital to organizational level network security protection. An unexpected cyber-attack could launch your business, head-first, into the worst-case scenario, making the creation of an incident response plan a critical part of your business continuity plan.
Join Sangfor experts for today's webinar covering:
• Managing branch offices effectively & securely
• Offload SecOps to a trusted managed service provider
• Incident Response best practices

IT infrastructure is a vital part of any size business, and has a huge impact on operations and company success. It’s vital to have a secure and efficient infrastructure to keep up with constant changes in business, technology and best practices. Upgrading your IT Infrastructure can be a daunting task. How do you know when it’s the right time to upgrade, and how to get started? Join Sangfor experts for a webinar, where we will conduct an in-depth discussion of warning signs that it’s time to consider upgrading your company IT. Sangfor HCI is the solution you need to effectively build a simple, secure, reliable and cost-efficient IT infrastructure for your business.
Cyberattacks occurs every 39 seconds globally and many are successful. Data breaches continue to affect hundreds of millions of customers causing them to lose trust in the businesses where personal information was compromised. It is vital for executives, managers, and line personnel to understand how data breaches occur and what can be done to prevent them.
In this webinar, we will revisit some of the most interesting recent data breaches and discuss lessons learned to better protect your organization from them happening to you.
Today’s cybersecurity landscape is dire: externally, innumerable attackers with sophisticated skills and weaponized AI, and internally our cyber assets growing rapidly while becoming more difficult to protect. Unfortunately, even though most organizations use traditional architectures with best-of-breed products to build their defenses, the results are often insufficient. As good as best-of-breed products are, they do not integrate well. Breaches happen constantly, ransomware still gets through, and worse the security team is often reactive and has difficulty identifying the root cause of an event, let alone develop a strategy to prevent it from happening again. A closed-loop system is need where security products are integrated directly to better identify new AI-based threats and coordinate response against them.
Sangfor NGAF is the foundation for building a proactive closed-loop security solution. Sangfor not only offers world-class battle-tested security protection but provides a straightforward way to identify and manage the sprawl of cyber assets, detect account abuse, and discover malicious processes and connections on critical business assets. Preemptively eliminate threats before they do damage.
Join this session to see how Sangfor NGAF works together with Endpoint Secure, and Platform-X to build a dynamic proactive closed-loop defense against today’s advanced cyberthreats.
In the governance of network security, we can isolate and deal with cyber threats with obvious symptoms, but it is hard for us to find the root cause of asymptomatic threats, so extermination cannot be guaranteed. If you lack the ability to hunt Patient Zero, the weaknesses in that system will always be the entry point for future threats. If you cannot detect an asymptomatic hidden threat, it can spread across the network and gradually open other breaches until your organization suffers the same kind of security incident again and again. According to the IBM 2020 Cost of a Data Breach Report, the average total cost of a data breach reached 3.86M USD, and the average time to identify and contain a breach increased globally from 197 to 280 days. If asymptomatic hidden threats are already inside your network, how do you stop them before they cause damage to your business? How do you avoid reinfection by same virus? Join us and find out how to locate asymptomatic infection and Patient Zero.

Network security is increasingly challenging with a steadily increasing volume of devices and data traversing networks. Many organisations have no proper incident response plan and inadequate threat identification solutions. Most lack a fully comprehensive, secure internet access solution designed to track user behaviour, notify administrators and remediate any potential risk. Organisations need a more holistic approach to network security, to improve their network visibility, identification, assessment and enforcement of policies and safeguards.
