  • Kubernetes in the Cloud (Part 2) Recorded: Jul 17 2019 60 mins
    Michelle Tidwell, Program Director, IBM; Tom Clark, Distinguished Engineer, IBM; Matt Levan, Storage Solutions Architect, IBM
    As enterprises move to a hybrid multi-cloud world, they are faced with many challenges. Decisions surrounding what technologies to use is one, but they are also seeing a transformation in traditional IT roles. The storage admins are asked to be more cloud savvy while new roles of cloud admins are emerging to handle the complexities of deploying simple and efficient clouds. Meanwhile, both these roles are asked to ensure a self-service environment is architected so that application developers can get resources needed to develop cutting edge apps not in weeks, days or hours, but in minutes.

    In part one of this three part series, we covered the high level aspects of Kubernetes. This presentation will discuss key capabilities IT vendors are creating based on open source technologies such as Docker and Kubernetes to build self-service infrastructure to support hybrid multi-cloud deployments.We’ll cover:

    •Persistent storage and how to specify it
    •Ensuring application portability between Private and Public Clouds
    •Building a self-service infrastructure (Helm, Operators)
    •Selecting Block, File, Object (Traditional Storage, SDS)

  • Overcoming Key Barrier to SD-WAN Adoption in the Enterprise Journey to the Cloud Recorded: Jun 24 2019 53 mins
    Rajesh Ghai Research Director, Carrier Network Infrastructure IDC, Rajesh Ghai Director, Carrier Network Infrastructure
    Enterprises have embraced cloud computing to unlock the opportunity offered by digital transformation. The cloud’s flexibility and agility enable enterprises to grow their business without borders and ensure productivity and efficiency.

    While enterprise applications continue to migrate to the cloud, the necessary change in the wide area network (WAN) is often overlooked. The hub-and-spoke WAN architecture that served the needs of the enterprise when applications were delivered from the datacenter, must evolve to serve the needs of the era of cloud applications. Software-defined WAN (SD-WAN) is the WAN's response to this paradigm shift in application traffic to the cloud.

    While SD-WAN has emerged as a key enabler of secure and seamless direct cloud application access with the benefits of transport independence, better security and path selection, it has brought into focus the importance of the transport underlay and the technology investment — both past and future — that an enterprise needs to consider before adopting SD-WAN.

    This webinar spotlights two critical success factors for driving mainstream enterprise adoption of SD-WAN:

    *Predictable and robust Internet connectivity
    *Investment protection (of installed legacy network equipment or in new technology) as the WAN evolves to support applications delivered from the cloud.

    Join us at this webinar as we make sense of SD-WAN adoption for your company.

  • Micro Focus ALM/QC Integration w/ AutoTesting for Reporting & Analysis Americas Recorded: Jun 20 2019 43 mins
    Matt Angerer
    Over the last few years, a major shift has occurred in the Quality Assurance (QA) and Software Testing Management space. Organizations are adopting smart test automation, but continue to find the need for traditional PMO-level reporting offered by tools like Micro Focus ALM and Quality Center. Often, this results in a tool mismatch that negatively impacts the ability to report in real-time across all phases of manual and automated testing.

    Smart test automation is no longer a “nice to have” but rather a foundational aspect of the testing process, and this is impacting the toolchain. Organizations are adding new test management tools like Selenium, Tricentis Tosca and others to their suite to better align with their Agile and test automation efforts. Global QA Directors are recognizing a multi-vendor and multi-tool approach to software quality assurance with commercial and open-source tools yields the best results.

    With test planning, design, execution, and reporting now split across multiple tools, organizations have lost their visibility into key QA metrics for measuring manual vs. automated test execution effectiveness, test automation progress, automated testing execution progress, and defect remediation for all phases of the software testing lifecycle.

    Join Senior Value Stream Architect, Matt Angerer, to learn how Tasktop can help you:

    •Modernize test management by adding new, specialized tools for test automation
    •Improve collaboration between QA teams working in their preferred tools of choice
    •Eliminate the laborious effort of manual synchronization and report generation
    •Centralize test data from automated and manual tests spanning multiple tools and instances for real-time reporting
  • SHIFT LEFT THEN SHIFT UP: Strengthening Your DevSecOps Posture Recorded: Jun 20 2019 47 mins
    Rani Osnat, VP of Product Marketing Aqua Security
    The concept of “shift left” engages security earlier in the development cycle of cloud-native applications, accelerating development while reducing risk. However, migrating to cloud-native environments also necessitates the security team to “shift up”, focusing on the application layer to account for the shared-service model and “thin OS” environments that are prevalent in these environments.

    Attend this webinar to learn why Shifting Up provides improved security and cost efficiency in cloud-native environments, including:

    - Kubernetes orchestrated applications
    - Containers running on VMs
    - Serverless containers (e.g., AWS Fargate and Azure Container Instances)
    - Serverless functions (e.g., AWS Lambda and Azure Functions)

  • If Developers Own Security Testing in DevOps - What is Security's Role? Recorded: Jun 19 2019 42 mins
    Chris Wysopal, CTO at Veracode
    Application security is “shifting left.” As the responsibility for ensuring the stability and security of software shifts to developers, what does this mean for security professionals? What does their job look like if developers are responsible for security testing?

    Learn:
    •What the security professional’s role and responsibilities look like in a DevSecOps shop

  • The State of DevSecOps - Featuring Amy DeMartine of Forrester Research Recorded: Jun 19 2019 56 mins
    Chris Eng, Veracode Vice President of Research and guest, Forrester Research Principal Analyst Amy DeMartine
    In our recent State of Software Security Volume 9 report, Veracode examined fix rates across 2 trillion lines of code shows that the number of vulnerable applications remains staggeringly high. More than 85 percent of all applications contain at least one vulnerability following the first scan, and more than 13 percent of applications contain at least one very high severity flaw.

    One thing is certain: the sheer volume of vulnerabilities present in most organizations’ application portfolios makes it necessary for them to make daily tradeoffs between security, practicality, and speed.

    There are just too many vulnerabilities for organizations to tackle all at once, which means it requires smart prioritization to close the riskiest vulnerabilities first. For the first time, our report shows a very strong correlation between high rates of security scanning and lower long-term application risks, which we believe presents a significant piece of evidence for the efficacy of DevSecOps. In fact, the most active DevSecOps programs fix flaws more than 11.5 times faster than the typical organization, due to ongoing security checks during continuous delivery of software builds, largely the result of increased code scanning.

    Join guest presenter Amy DeMartine, Principal Analyst, Forrester Research Inc., and Veracode’s Chris Eng as they deliver valuable takeaways for business leaders, security practitioners and development teams seeking to secure their applications. Listeners will learn potential prioritizations and software development methods that could help their organizations reduce risk more quickly.
