  • The consumerization of IT, bring your own device (BYOD), and software-as-a-service (SaaS) provide organizations with impressive productivity gains, but bring with them the challenge of secure management. Grady Boggs, Principal Security Specialist, illustrates the Microsoft comprehensive cloud solution, the Enterprise Mobility Suite (EMS), and details how users can stay productive while keeping corporate information safe and secure.
  • To make your Hadoop deployment enterprise-class, robust data replication is required to support business-critical functions that depend on Hadoop. Firms can no longer rely on the status quo of traditional, slow data backups into underutilized hardware.

    Enterprise class active-active replication delivers several benefits, including:
    - Maximum infrastructure resource utilization
    - Better performance across geographies
    - Faster disaster recovery.

    In this webinar, learn how WANdisco Fusion enables true enterprise class replication for Hadoop.
  • Face it, Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) is here to stay, but that’s not automatically true for the apps and data on those devices. Join us to learn how to create the right technology and process mix - architecture, policy, protection, expectation setting and SLAs. Come see how to build on the economies of scale you're getting from your virtualized infrastructure. And how you can extend them to address end-point device information management, file synchronization and backup and recovery approaches.

  • Agile was first adopted at the team level: groups of 7 plus or minus 2 people embracing agile practices. But in reality, this is not how most enterprise software is delivered. Enterprise software depends on multiple teams working toward common objectives. Most enterprise companies are just beginning to harness agile at this level.

    With this next level comes a new focus on agile adoption patterns and a back-to-basics approach. Companies adopting agile must come to grips with the reality that successful agile at scale requires hard organizational choices. Companies willing to go “all-in” are reaping immense rewards, including the ones who have been agile for many years.

    You’ll leave this webinar knowing:

    -How Agile at scale is different from team-level Agile
    -Why focusing on strong Agile basics is key to scaling Agile
    -Why connecting delivery to strategy is essential in realizing the promise of Agile
    -Where you are in your Agile journey, and what to do next
    -How to identify trouble spots and fix them

  • Today’s cyber defenses generate a torrent of security alerts. Some of them can be useful, even essential. Many are not. And telling the difference isn’t always easy.

    When assessing security products, organizations often equate a large volume of alerts with more thorough threat detection. But as anyone who’s been roused awake by a car alarm at 3 a.m. knows, it’s the quality of these alerts—not the quantity—that really matters.

    This webinar will examine the four biggest problems with reactive, alarm-based defenses in conventional security deployments.

    Join us to:

    -Learn how to alleviate alert fatigue
    -Detect true threats, provide quality alerts and enhace them with ample context and insight so security teams can act on them

    -Discover how to recognize multiple separate alerts that might be part of a multi-pronged attack on your network

  • The Nordic region is known for its natural resources, innovations in renewable energy and healthcare, proximity to the Arctic, and emphasis on transparency in government. However, these unique attributes make the region a prime target for cyber threat groups looking to capitalize on Nordic countries’ robust economies and distinct geopolitical concerns.

  • Smart grid has emerged as a fast-growing area in the past five years. However, it is not one big market; it is an amalgamation of different sectors, technologies, products, and components. Installation of smart meters is considered the first step toward smart grid implementation. The smart meter rollout in Europe is well under way, boosted by the European Union legislation to achieve 80 percent coverage by 2020. However, there are other growth areas, beyond smart meters, that are interesting for U.S. companies to invest into.

    For example, the U.S. Commercial Service, part of the U.S. Department of Commerce, helps U.S. companies expand their exports to overseas markets. Around the world, 1,400 Commercial Service officers promote U.S. business interests abroad. In this briefing find out what the company can do to support export objectives in the smart grid space.

    This analyst briefing also will highlight and discuss the opportunities that exist for the US companies within the European smart grid market, including a special offer available to those interested in European Utility Week, the largest and most comprehensive Smart utility event in Europe. About 10,000 visitors and 450 solution providers will do business, network and share best practices in Vienna this year.

  • Traditionally, most organizations have used email for sending files to colleagues or clients. However, as files increase in size and email attachment limits are an issue, employees are forced to either use old-fashioned FTP or circumvent company regulations by turning to insecure consumer-grade applications. 72% of the people we surveyed do! Let us tell you about a better way.

    Join us to learn 4 key best practices:
    1) Don’t mess with what users know – continue to use Microsoft Outlook to drive file transfers (just don’t leave it to Outlook to deliver them)
    2) Don’t leave it to users to decide when something is too big or too sensitive to send by email
    3) Do make the experience better and faster for users (as opposed to more complicated and slower)
    4) Have a policy (and protection) that covers email-based sharing even when mobile

    With Workshare, employees can email links to files, eliminating the need for attachments, while continuing to us the familiar Outlook to do it. Policy-enforcement means companies can secure, track, and expire file access and activity beyond the corporate firewall.

    Workshare also uses its customizable policy engine to ensure that the content that is shared is secured and removed of any sensitive information before it is shared.
    Intelligently scan and secure documents too large or too important to send by email. IT can set policies to determine when a file is too large to send, or critically when to block or clean a file if it contains sensitive hidden data that would expose the company to risk.
