Virtualization and the Cloud: Encryption Enables a Fast and Secure Migration

Gargi Mitra Keeling, Group Product Manager, vCloud Security, VMware; Imam Sheikh, Product Manager, Virtualization, SafeNet
The business benefits and economies of migrating to virtualized and cloud environments are very clear, providing significant cost reduction and system efficiencies, moving to a “pay as you go model”. However, when you move to a dense virtual infrastructure or cloud, you often lose control of the underlying infrastructure, therefore ownership and control of data in that infrastructure. In addition, workloads are mobile yet security is usually tied to underlying infrastructure, removing any assurances that security policies can be enforced as workloads move.

In the journey to virtualization and the cloud, many organizations are still contending with large pools of physical infrastructure. They want to gain the efficiency and lower cost associated with server consolidation and virtualization, but security and audit teams advise them this puts the company’s sensitive data at risk. Automating IT in a private cloud keeps developers and other users in-house and under an organization’s control, but rapid deployment of workload requires agile security.

Join your fellow professionals to first understand the challenges and roadblocks of migrating to the cloud and virtualized environments, and where the data security gaps exist. Then understand how by attaching security to the data itself and managing the encryption keys, you are able to maintain control of your data, prove compliance, and facilitate governance – even in a dense virtual or cloud environment. Virtualization, Hybrid or Public cloud offerings can now be used for broader workloads (including ones containing business critical, sensitive data ie. production servers in addition to test and development), while still delivering the security and compliance requirements needed.

  • How Encryption Key Management Enables Data Center Transformation May 15 2014 2:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    In the past, companies had limited options for encrypting data, and the products that managed the encryption keys were complex, single-purpose, and expensive. Today, a virtualized data center requires a more nimble approach: new encryption solutions have been developed to encrypt data, and more powerful solutions for managing all of the necessary keys are required.

    Blair Semple, CISSP-ISSEP, Director of Business Development at SafeNet, will discuss the role of key management in the enterprise storage ecosystem, best practices, and the recommended characteristics of solutions.

    With this session, you can prepare for a key management system that meets your needs for security, scale, flexibility, and operational efficiency—both today and well into the future.

    We discuss how to get it back.
  • Multiple authentication solutions, but are they all equal? May 8 2014 2:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    How to map the Ideal Authentication Solution to your IT Environment

    Today’s IT environments have become the sum of multiples: Multiple applications to protect; multiple identities to manage and multiple endpoints to secure. Doing the math about how you secure access to numerous applications, the time you spend on provisioning tokens and the overhead invested in managing users may lead you to re-calculate how you would ideally like to run your authentication environment.

    Join your fellow professionals to understand how you can map the Next Generation Authentication solution to your IT environment, equating the key factors that determine your authentication needs with the ideal authentication solution.

    Then we will discuss:

    •Current market trends around collaboration, cloud and security
    •Vulnerabilities associated with unsecured file sharing tools
    •The role of strong authentication in securing collaboration and file sharing tools
    •Authentication Case study
  • Secure payment vulnerabilities with Point-to-Point encryption Recorded: Apr 24 2014 57 mins
    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.

  • Best practices for layer 2 network encryption in the public and private sector Recorded: Feb 20 2014 59 mins
    Whether you are a government, military or commercial organization, you need to ensure that your data is encrypted in transit.

    As corporate and government espionage intensifies, with high profile fibre tapping cases, such as UK’s GCHQ extensive fibre tapping becoming public news, encryption of data in transit is essential. Cyber-threats to data in motion are real and occurring constantly. By protecting the data itself with encryption you render it useless to a 3rd party, but can it keep up with your network?

    Data network growth, increasingly sensitive data and bandwidth demands are creating a shift to the more efficient encryption of sensitive traffic at Layer 2. Layer 2 affords secure encryption that is up to 50% more efficient than competing technologies such as IPsec with little or no impact on network performance.

    Join your fellow professionals for a best practice session to understand how these triple certified encryptors, CAPS, FIPS and Common Criteria certified solutions can be used on a Layer 2 network to protect data in motion for government and military organizations, as well as financial and other commercial enterprises. Specifically CAPS provides assurance for the UK government, its agencies and commercial enterprises working with the government.

    With proven reliability, high throughput, and low latency, SafeNet network encryption devices ensure security and certified assurance across Layer 2 networks.

  • How to Say “YES” to Dropbox for Sensitive Data in the Enterprise Recorded: Dec 5 2013 46 mins
    How to Say “YES” to Dropbox for Sensitive Data in the Enterprise (And feel good about it)

    Dropbox isn’t coming to your enterprise someday. It’s here, now. BYOD(ropbox) has happened, as employees try to make it easy to collaborate and access documents on the go. While this transition may have happened without your IT organization’s involvement or buy in, IT teams still have a critical role to play when it comes to protected sensitive corporate documents. You may have even implemented other file sharing or storage applications internally-but are your employees using them?

    The reality is that enterprises can begin to say YES to Dropbox usage for sensitive documents, while eliminating the associated security risks. This webinar will show you how, and provide recommendations on what to look for in order to help you embrace Dropbox within your organization to secure the workloads that you need protected.
  • Utilizing Strong Authentication for Secure File Collaboration in the Enterprise Recorded: Nov 20 2013 57 mins
    Managers tasked with leading IT and security today find themselves having to navigate fundamental changes in their professional environment.

    In the process they are being overtaken by business units, groups and even individual employees who are taking an off-road approach by procuring IT services on their own, whether by subscribing to a SaaS offering, buying their own computing equipment, downloading a productivity application, or renting cloud storage. From here, the slippery road toward unauthorized file sharing and leakage of sensitive corporate data is short.

    Join your fellow professionals for a best practices session on “Utilizing Strong Authentication to Encourage Collaboration in the Enterprise”. In this webinar executives from SafeNet and WatchDox will discuss how strong authentication combines with file sharing to facilitate and enable secure collaboration in the enterprise.

    In this webinar we will discuss :

  • Virtualization and Changing the Approach to Data Encryption Recorded: Oct 10 2013 25 mins
    The advantages of virtualization are well publicised, as are the many security concerns.
    At the end of the day, the security of these solutions will determine the willingness of organizations to move sensitive workloads to the cloud.
    One thing is clear; encryption will play an important role in bridging the gap between the security of traditional systems, and the advantages of the cloud. For that to happen new encryption technologies need to be introduced and legacy encryption technologies need to evolve.

    Join your fellow professionals on this insightful session to learn more.
  • Your Cloud or Mine? Exploring Data Security in the Cloud Recorded: Oct 9 2013 49 mins
    This discussion will tackle the complex issues around data ownership and control in the hands of cloud users at the consuming organization, cloud administrators at the cloud provider, law enforcement, intelligence agencies and a pantheon of adversaries.

    When sensitive information exists outside of the traditional internal IT environment, it has the potential to deprecate the ability to properly protect and monitor it for indicators of compromise. Whether it’s the virtualization layer in a private cloud or the APIs and management layer of a public cloud, there is an entire new class of privileged infrastructure and privileged users—creating additional opportunity for failure. Adversaries clearly see cloud as an area of opportunity—all the eggs in one basket! Rather than optimally addressing these issues, most organizations try to (unsuccessfully) map legacy controls from traditional data centers into the cloud.

    This session will cover the real issues and ideas in how we assess and manage security in these environments. If losing control and ownership of your data in the cloud is slowing down your cloud consumption, we discuss how to retain control in these new environments.
  • Secure the Breach – Bereiten Sie sich auf den Ernstfall vor Recorded: Sep 26 2013 47 mins
    Die Frage ist nicht OB, sondern WANN!

    Seit Jahrzehnten spielen wir nun das gleiche Spiel.
    Hacker versuchen mit allen Mitteln an unsere wertvollen Daten zu gelangen und wir versuchen Ihnen immer einen Schritt voraus zu sein. Wir investieren Unsummen in Firewalls, Anti-Virus-Software, VPN und IPS – immer bedacht, eine undurchdringbare Mauer um genau diese Daten zu ziehen.
