  • SIEM 2.0 - How Unified Security Management SIEMplifies Threat Detection Oct 17 2017 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Sacha Dawes, Principal Product Marketing Manager, AlienVault
    SIEM solutions have been widely adopted to help IT teams collect and correlate data from a variety of security point products. However, traditional SIEM deployments require a great deal of time, money & expertise to properly normalize data feeds, create correlation rules to detect threats & continuously tune those rules to limit false positives. And, after all that work is done, it has to be continuously re-done as the network & threat landscape changes.

    AlienVault takes a different approach to SIEM. Join this webcast to learn how AlienVault Unified Security Management (USM) overcomes the most common SIEM challenges with:

    Built-in capabilities like asset discovery, vulnerability assessment, intrusion detection, orchestrated incident response, and log management
    Continuously updated correlation directives, vulnerability signatures, incident response guidance, and more
    Fully integrated, real-time threat intelligence from the AlienVault Labs Security Research Team and the AlienVault Open Threat Exchange (OTX)
    The ability to monitor on-premises and cloud environments including AWS and Azure, as well as cloud applications like Office 365

    Garrett Gross, Director of Field Enablement, AlienVault
    Ransomware continues to be one of the most intrusive and pervasive threats today. With organizations of every size and vertical being a potential target, the opportunity exists for traditional MSPs to offer security-as-a-service to help customers protect, detect and respond to such threats.

    But, just how bad is the ransomware threat? It's worse than you may think and organizations are not doing enough to combat it.

    Hear from industry expert Nick Cavalancia and Garrett Gross, Director of Field Enablement, from AlienVault as they discuss:

    - The current state of the ransomware threat
    - Common ransomware scenarios, responses, and outcomes
    - The opportunity that exists for MSPs to stand in the gap
  • How Smart Security Teams Use Cyber Threat Intelligence Recorded: Sep 19 2017 58 mins
    Sacha Dawes, Principal Product Marketing Manager, AlienVault
    As malware and ransomware become more commercialized, and the evolution of threats accelerates, it’s hard for organizations to keep up – even when they have multiple security products deployed. The latest SANS Cyber Threat Intelligence Survey showed that organizations using threat intelligence can gain dramatic improvements in visibility into threats, to enable a faster and more accurate response.

    Join AlienVault for this practical session to learn how smart security teams are integrating cyber threat intelligence into their day to day operations. You'll learn:
    - What threat intelligence is, and how it speeds threat detection and incident response
    - Key questions to help you evaluate threat intelligence sources and plan for integrating it into your operations
    - How AlienVault USM Anywhere integrates threat intelligence with other security capabilities to save valuable time

  • Tracking Access, Sharing and Administration of Files in SharePoint Online Recorded: Sep 14 2017 83 mins
    Sacha Dawes, Principal Product Marketing Manager, AlienVault. Randy Smith, CEO, Monterey Technology Group, Inc.
    Cloud-based file applications like SharePoint and OneDrive for business mean any document in your company is seconds away from being shared to the world with a unique URL that takes people directly to the file.

    Given this, how do you remain compliant and exert some level of control and accountability over your organization’s documents?

    In this webinar, Randy Smith of Ultimate Windows Security will zero in on how the UAL can answer these questions:

    -Who viewed this file?
    - Who was been downloading an abnormal amount of files?
    -When was this file downloaded and by whom?
    -…and more!

    Sacha Dawes of AlienVault will then show you how AlienVault Unified Security Management (USM) accomplishes all of this and more – such as enriching audit events with geo location based on the ClientIP field, and enabling alerting and reporting on SharePoint and OneDrive events.

    Garrett Gross, Director Field of Enablement
    Security continues to be one of the top three IT concerns for SMB, mid-market and large enterprise customers. Security and Cloud continue to be the top two industry/market spend opportunities for the channel to invest in, according to CompTIA’s 2016 Annual IT Report. The opportunity for MSPs to become Managed Security Service Providers (MSSPs) is exploding – as is the opportunity for MSSPs to strengthen and expand their bottom line and market share. If you are interested in expanding your current MSP practice with security offerings, please watch this “How-to" discussion on building and growing an MSSP. We discuss best practices and illustrate what “best in class” looks like when it comes to:

    Common security challenges for the mid-market
    Considerations when selecting security vendor partners and ensuring a profitable practice
    Operational, financial, and process considerations that are key to a successful MSSP
    Essential skills critical to build successful MSSPs
    Solutions, business resources, tools, and programs available to enable the success of an MSSP
    In addition, we discuss some common mistakes MSSPs make and how to avoid those when building your practice.
  • Threat Intelligence: The MSP’s Secret Weapon Recorded: Aug 17 2017 34 mins
    Garrett Gross, Director Field of Enablement
    One of the biggest challenges when creating a managed security offering is developing threat intelligence and instrumenting it with existing security controls. This challenge is magnified exponentially as a company's client base grows and needs evolve.

    In this session, you’ll learn about the benefits of building your service offering around a unified security platform and how integrated threat intelligence accelerates the detection process. We’ll also recommend how MSSPs can leverage open threat sharing communities and custom intelligence development to maximize revenue and differentiate themselves from the competition.

    Attend this Webchat and you will also learn:

    The importance of developing a comprehensive understanding of not only the different data types collected for analysis, but also the ways in which the data types interact with each other
    The need for an intelligent approach to identifying the latest threats to achieve the broadest view of threat vectors, attacker techniques and effective defenses
    Why the use of coordinated rule set updates is key to maximizing the effectiveness and efficiency of threat intelligence
    and to ensuring that your clients are protected no matter how (and how often) their business grows and needs change
  • A Step-By-Step Guide to Building a Profitable Security Practice Recorded: Aug 17 2017 33 mins
    Garrett Gross, Director of Field Enablement
    As your clients work on their 2017 budgets, they will be paying a lot of attention to security. It’s probably the top priority for most of them. Threat profiles have expanded, new attack vectors have emerged and legacy systems simply can’t keep up. It’s not nearly enough to sell some security software or deploy a few firewalls. For IT service providers, this presents both a challenge and an opportunity. On one hand, your customers need new security solutions that you haven’t delivered before. But on the other hand, your customers want to pay you for services that will increase both your revenues and profits.

    Given that your customers will want their security challenges addressed immediately, you need to rapidly develop the skills and services required to get the job done.

    In this fast-paced session, join experts from AlienVault and MSPmentor to outline a step-by-step process you can follow to build a thriving, profitable security practice. Key topics to be addressed include:

    The five vital technology tools you need to run an effective security practice
    A detailed profile of the target customers most likely to adopt IT services to help accelerate your sales process
    A map for building and pricing your security service packages to meet customers’ needs (and for building your profits)
  • Adding the S to MSP: Making Money in a Competitive Market Recorded: Aug 17 2017 35 mins
    Mike LaPeters, VP Global Channel Sales & Mike Calonica, VP American Sales
    Anybody can deliver technology, but these days MSPs also need to protect their customers’ networks and data. Cyber threats are a growing concern, and if you can’t provide security, your customers will find a provider who can. That’s why adding security to an MSP’s palette of services isn’t just an option; it’s a must.


    In this webcast, experts from Penton and AlienVault will discuss how to turn your MSP into a profitable MSSP by adding security for customers to protect their business from the scourge of cybercrime. Join this session to learn more about:

    Current threats and how they are evolving
    Comprehensive threat protection for the cloud
    Unified security for detecting threats and responding to incidents
  • Use of Managed Security Service Providers (MSSPs) - Benefits, Challenges and Tre Recorded: Aug 17 2017 55 mins
    Garrett Gross Director, Field Enablement
    Research shows that about half of organizations deploy a mix of in-house and outsourced IT security. Companies turn to outsourced and managed security services providers to alleviate the pressures they face, such as assessing and remediating against new types of attacks, protecting their organization against data theft, and addressing skills shortages and filling resource gaps. The 2017 Spotlight Report covering MSSP usage revealed the latest data points and trends in how organizations are leveraging Managed Security Services Providers (MSSPs) to augment, or in some cases completely outsource their security programs.

    In this session you'll learn about key findings from this survey including:

    The predominant driver for organizations to consider managed security services
    The most critical capabilities organizations look for in MSSPs
    The most requested security services offered by MSSPs
    Key benefits respondents have achieved by partnering with an MSSP

    Whether you are evaluating using an MSSP, or are an MSSP yourself, join us to gain valuable insights into how MSSPs are helping their clients. We'll also provide an overview of how our report sponsor, AlienVault, enables the threat detection capabilities of many MSSP's with their unified threat detection platform, AlienVault USM

  • Petya Variant Ransomware: How to Detect the Vulnerability and Exploits Recorded: Jun 27 2017 32 mins
    Sacha Dawes, Principal Product Marketing Manager. Chris Doman, Threat Engineer
    As you've likely heard, a variant of the Petya malware is spreading rapidly and is known to have affected organizations worldwide, regardless of size. This variant of Petya follows a similar attack method to last month's WannaCry ransomware, though it uses the PsExec and WMI services for distribution.

    Once compromised, the ransomware will overwrite the Master Boot Record (MBR), encrypt individual files that match a list of file extensions (including documents, archives, and more), and after a reboot of the system will present the user a message requesting a ransom in Bitcoin to decrypt the system. As with WannaCry, the ETERNALBLUE exploit toolkit (which was released by the Shadow Brokers group in April 2017) is suspected to be a key part of the attack.

    Join us for a 30-minute technical webcast to learn more about this Petya variant, and how the unified security controls in AlienVault USM Anywhere can help you quickly identify vulnerable systems and attacks.

    You'll learn:
