It's now more and more being used to bridge multiple Internet connections for organizations large and small to create more bandwidth in and out of their data centers. Traditional WAN Link Load Balancing has evolved from simple back up and VPN connectivity to a robust traffic management tool that seamlessly adds bandwidth using virtually any ISP technology. In this webinar you’ll learn the basics of Hybrid WANs, what they and Link Load Balancing can do for your organization, and discover more about Fortinet’s Hybrid WAN solutions.
  • SDN and NFV: Protecting the Next Wave of Infrastructure Apr 29 2015 3:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Talbot Hack, Senior Product Manager, Arbor Networks
    As traditional network architectures come under increasing strain, Software Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) hold the promise of making networks more open, predictable, flexible, user- and service-friendly and lower cost to operate. These virtualized, software-controlled networking environments, however, do not yet benefit from the range and sophistication of DDoS protections and security available for traditional networks. This presentation focuses on how the delivery of traffic intelligence, threat detection and attack blocking is evolving, regardless of whether BGP and flow or future SDN/NFV-based techniques are in use.

    Attend this session to learn how Arbor Networks is adopting its DDoS solution suite to advance protections in SDN- and NFV-based networks.

  • Best Practices for DDoS Protection Apr 29 2015 1:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Julio Arruda, Sales Engineering Manager, Arbor Networks
    DDoS attacks have been around for more than a decade, and in that sense they are old news. However, what a DDoS attack actually is has been constantly changing. There are several persistent misconceptions about DDoS attacks and DDoS defense that leave too many organizations vulnerable today. One misconception is that a DDoS attack is all about size. While certainly true, modern DDoS attacks can enormous, DDoS today is more frequently targeting your applications and security infrastructure, such as your firewall and IPS. Another misconception is that DDoS defense is an either-or proposition. You handle it in the cloud through a provider, or you have DDoS defense on premise. In fact, one layer of protection is not protection at all.

    Join us for a session that will cover:
    • An overview of the current attack landscape and implications
    • Best practice defense against modern DDoS attacks
    • Lessons learned by global enterprises struck by attacks
  • Creating a Government Private Threat Intelligence Cloud Apr 28 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.

  • Using Machine-Readable Threat Intelligence to Block Unknown Threats Apr 23 2015 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Gartner Research Director Craig Lawson and Webroot Chief Technology Officer Hal Lonas
    Enterprises continue to struggle with network breaches, data theft, and other incidents, despite deploying layers of security technologies across their IT environments. One reason for these successful attacks is that many of the threats have never been seen before, and go undetected by traditional security technology. So how can an organization recognize these threats more quickly as they emerge? How does the organization ensure that information about the latest threats is available to drive fast response at the points of vulnerability? In this program, Gartner Research Director Craig Lawson and Webroot Chief Technology Officer Hal Lonas discuss how integrating machine-readable threat intelligence into your security infrastructure can help your organization block active attacks, and even predict where future attacks are likely to come from.

  • Using Sequence Package Analysis to Detect Terrorism and Sedition Apr 22 2015 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Amy Neustein, Ph.D. CEO and Founder Linguistic Technology Systems
    This webinar will demonstrate how Sequence Package Analysis (SPA), a new natural language method that utilizes a corpus of annotated training data comprised of a unique set of feature extractions, may detect early signs of terrorism and sedition. Using an SPA-designed BNF table consisting of sequentially-implicative (as opposed to syntactic) parsing structures, this natural language tool searches social media content and recordings of conversations of suspected terrorists to identify (and measure) collusion, collaboration, affinity with other terror or sedition suspects. Whereas conventional text mining methods are hindered by the speech system’s failure to identify keywords (most suspects intentionally refrain from the use of keywords that pinpoint location, names, dates and time), SPA is designed to work around these obstacles in which users refrain from referring to named entities that are likely to flag their communications as suspicious.
