Protect Apps, Not Just Data: Enterprise-class BC/DR in a Virtual Environment

Dave Simpson, Analyst, The 451 Group; Mark Montagna, The Philadelphia Contributionship; Gil Levonai, VP of Products, Zerto
Enticed by the promise of greater availability and flexibility at a reduced cost, enterprises are virtualizing tier-one, mission-critical applications now more than ever. Those applications are typically comprised of several virtual machines, span servers and storage arrays, have aggressive service-level agreements (SLAs), and require robust, effective and automated failover and failback. Unfortunately, traditional business continuity/disaster recovery (BC/DR) approaches are complex, rigid and inflexible, and IT departments have struggled to protect these applications in a virtual environment.

Want to learn how to mitigate data loss, minimize RPOs and RTOs, and ensure a high degree of service continuity? Join this interactive webinar and discover how to protect your applications, not just your data.

•Leading 451 Group Analyst Dave Simpson will discuss the industry drivers for virtualized mission-critical applications, core challenges of traditional BC/DR approaches, and the key features needed to ensure a robust, yet flexible, BC/DR solution for a virtual environment.

•Gil Levonai, VP of products for Zerto, will quickly highlight a revolutionary technology, hypervisor-based replication, which simplifies enterprise-class BC/DR in a virtual environment.

•Your peer, Mark Montagna, IT Infrastructure Manager for The Philadelphia Contributionship, will share his experience including: previous BC/DR challenges, selection process, the Zerto implementation and resulting benefits.

  • Creating a Government Private Threat Intelligence Cloud May 27 2015 6:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Taylor Ettema, Product Manager, Threat Prevention Technologies
    With the sophistication and highly targeted nature of attacks against governments, the adversary can use numerous approaches and actions to get in and move across the network. Palo Alto Networks Threat Intelligence—from the cloud or an on-premises government-run platform—constantly gathers intelligence on evasive applications and converts the intelligence back into all platform devices. This ensures that organizations maintain control of evasive applications to ensure authorized activity traverses the networks while unauthorized activity fails to route.

    Join this webinar to Learn:
    - How Government Agencies can develop and manage their own threat intelligence cloud on a closed, dedicated Palo Alto Networks WF-500 threat intelligence platform.

    - How to create effective threat intelligence private clouds for a singular agency or for a group of Agencies, Ministries or Departments who wish to share their threat intelligence.

    - How the threat intelligence cloud (public or private) analyzes and correlates intelligence from all platform security functions—URL Filtering, mobile security, IPS/threat prevention and the virtual execution engine or sandbox, WildFire™— and validated community input.

    - How WildFire immediately discovers previously unknown malware and communicates the results to the platform to automatically generate signatures.

    - How all threat intelligence is distributed to the network and endpoints to ensure they are protected.

    - How this is all done automatically, reducing operational burden and shortening an organization’s response time.

    - How this innovative architecture can be operated at a fraction of the cost it takes to deploy and manage an equivalent set of point products – APT, IDS/IPS, URL filtering and more – all correlating insights automatically in real-time for greatest network protection.

  • How Bad Can Zero Days Get? May 27 2015 5:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Robert Hansen, VP of WhiteHat Security Labs
    Are you giving the adversary unintended access through vulnerabilities in your system?

    By only having one method of finding vulnerabilities or one way of mitigating them, the chances of the adversary getting through are increasingly high. This webinar will walk you through the current threat landscape, how vulnerabilities can be found, and how to mitigate control.

    In this webinar you'll learn:

    - What types of assessments work at which points in the software development lifecycle.
    - What is the most popular way to deploy a WAF and why that's not a good idea as a single method of defense.
    - Why finding and fixing your vulnerability isn't actually good enough.

  • A Best Practice Blueprint for eGRC May 26 2015 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Brandon Dunlap (Moderator); Renee Murphy, Forester; Mike Rost, MetricStream; Vivek Shivananda, Rsam.
    With the increased regulation and scrutiny of the past decade, it is important for organizations to implement best practices in order to maintain control and achieve compliance with evolving regulatory requirements.

    Compliance teams of the brave new world are set up to discuss risks with the key business leaders, and have sufficient resources to ensure company compliance programs are implemented effectively. Their software applications for managing enterprise governance, risk management, and compliance (eGRC) continue to mature with impressive features and functions, and they are making notable strategic advances by linking these three business functions for more informed decision-making, to reduce risk exposure, lower audit costs, and demonstrate compliance.

    To replicate similar success in your eGRC program, you will need to focus on selling GRC value, practicing good GRC project management, and embedding GRC into corporate culture. Join this educational panel webinar as our experts delve deeper into this, and identify the best practices for implementing an eGRC program in 2015.

  • Data Security: 3 Ways to Protect Your Company from the Inside Out Recorded: May 20 2015 42 mins
    Guest Speaker: Chris Berube, Director of IT at Law Offices of Joe Bornstein
    There seems to be news of a major data breach in the headlines almost every week. Conventional wisdom suggests that securing the network and perimeter of an IT environment should be enough to protect a company from a breach – but what if that breach originates internally? How can a situation like this be averted? Today companies need to protect themselves from the inside out by first recognizing which of their data is sensitive and then ensuring that it’s properly secured.

    Join us and learn how Chris Berube, Director of IT at Law Offices of Joe Bornstein, has rethought information security in order to protect his company from the inside out.

    We’ll discuss how to:
    1.Identify files which contain sensitive information
    2.Audit user files to track suspicious activities
    3.Monitor proactively when secured data has been moved to public shares
  • Leveraging Next-Gen SIEM For Security Intelligence: A Buyer’s Perspective Recorded: May 19 2015 47 mins
    Paul Lynch, Director of Data Security & Networks, American Board of Internal Medicine
    Chartered with securing both the PII of over 250,000 physicians and a vast amount of highly valued intellectual property amidst a rapidly evolving threat landscape, Paul Lynch, Director of Data Security and Networks at the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM), recognized the need to move beyond a traditional SIEM, and employ a more holistic approach to Security Intelligence.

    In this CISO Executive Network webinar, Mr. Lynch will share with you the path he took to go from defining ABIM’s core security intelligence requirements to making his ultimate selection. The path included establishing a detailed score card for evaluating various SIEM solutions, moving from eight vendors’ to a short list of four, then testing and ultimately selecting a unified platform for ABIM.

    Whether you have an existing SIEM platform and are overwhelmed by its complexity, inadequate visibility to today’s advance threats or the manpower required to manage it, or you’re considering deploying SIEM for the first time, you’ll benefit greatly by joining us for this webinar.

    Key themes to be covered include:
    • SIEM for Security vs. IT Operations – understanding and prioritizing your options
    • Establishing a score card to evaluate vendors and solutions
    • How to leveraging market research and outside perspectives to inform your decision
    • Considering total cost of ownership (price, deployment, implementation, usability, management)
