  • Join us for this live webinar where we will walk through a real-world example in which FireEye Managed Defense analysts utilized the FireEye Platform’s MVX virtual machine technology and endpoint response capabilities to identify, alert, and remediate an active Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) attack.

    In this case study we will cover:

    • How the attacker executed a “smash-and-grab” attack aimed at stealing intellectual property.
    • How FireEye detected the attack as it was beginning and re-secured the network and prevented sensitive data from leaving the client’s networks.
    • Best practices for investigating and responding to similar attacks.
  • 85% of enterprises permit BYOD, but only 25-30% of them actually have policies and technology to manage these devices. What is your business doing to ensure that the content on that device stays secure, regardless of what device your employees are using? If you are considering moving to a BYOD strategy or are in the midst of doing so, join this webinar to learn how to develop and execute a BYOD plan in your company. We'll talk about major challenges from creating a BYOD strategy and best practices from ensuring that the content on your device stays secure with Box.

  • Extend the reach of your Service Desk to your Mobile Support Teams.

    Join us for the fifth in our six part FrontRange UK Webcast Series "Change is in your Hands" hosted by UK Solutions Consultant Peter Coote.

    We know that service desk technicians can’t always be tied to a desk.
    As needs arise, they may be travelling, working remotely or moving around your building completing assignments and solving problems for customers, often with reduced access to the service desk.
    With FrontRange™ HEAT Mobile Field Service there’s no reason for your technicians to go off the grid when they’re on a service call.
    HEAT Mobile Field Service turns a handheld smart-phone into a mobile service desk client, allowing technicians to take the office with them wherever they go.

    Register today to hear how HEAT Mobile Field Service can:
    •Empower your technicians
    •Lower service costs
    •Improve response times

  • Everyday consumers assume that when making a purchase, online or in-store, their card data is handed off to a trusted source, with security in place to protect them. However protecting these transactions and the retail payment ecosystem has become increasingly complex, with recent data breaches of large retailers testament to the vulnerabilities.

    In addition, compliance with PCI DSS fails to address some of these vulnerabilities resulting in potential exploitation with disastrous consequences. To address these security gaps the scope of security needs extending from the merchant, acquirer, switch and bank or card issuers to include the manufacturers of payment terminals at the point of sale and developers of payment application software.

    Join your fellow professionals to understand how by using Point-to-Point Encryption, card data is encrypted from the earliest possible moment of its capture, and ensures that data remains in an encrypted state consistently until it arrives at the payment gateway.

    Then understand why many merchants are considering P2PE not only to secure vulnerabilities, but also because it can effectively remove some of the merchant’s own security infrastructures from the scope of compliance with regulations such as PCI DSS. Lastly understand why encryption is only as secure as the encryption keys as when cryptography is used to protect valued data, the risk is transferred from the data to the keys.
  • The future of work sees changes to how employees work, how managers lead, and how organizations are structured. However, technology still remains the central nervous system of organizations and things like enables flexible work, collaboration, communication, and BYOD. In short, IT helps organizations be competitive. But how is IT changing in the context of new work behaviors and expectations, a multi-generational workforce, the cloud, globalization, and many of the other trends that are shaping the world of work? Join us in this session as a panel of experts debates and explores how IT is changing and what the future of IT looks like.
  • How many logs files do you have?
    • Ever use them?
    • Wonder what they might contain?
    • Are they lying around unexploited, cropped or deleted to save space?
