Commercial analytic solutions are becoming more and more common within the Pharma industry. Companies are spending millions implementing tools which are aimed at helping users identify opportunities to improve the bottom line, segment customers, track multichannel campaign success and meet a myriad of other objectives. Despite all the 'perceived' value these tools can add, they remain largely unused. Excuses for the lack of adoption are varied but can generally be classified into one of three areas - they are either too complex, it isn't convenient to use or it just doesn't deliver on the value promised. These issues are compounded by the fact that they are generally only identified when the solution has been deployed and expected to be used. By ensuring that these issues are addressed at all stages during the development and not just when adoption targets are not being met, commercial analytic solutions can be exploited to attain the anticipated value and more.

Today's storage world would appear to have been divided into three major and mutually exclusive categories: block, file and object storage. Much of the marketing that shapes much of the user demand would appear to suggest that these are three quite distinct animals, and many systems are sold as exclusively either SAN for block, NAS for file or object. And object is often conflated with cloud, a consumption model that can in reality be block, file or object.
But a fixed taxonomy that divides the storage world this way is very limiting, and can be confusing; for instance, when we talk about cloud. How should providers and users buy and consume their storage? Are there other classifications that might help in providing storage solutions to meet specific or more general application needs?
This webcast will explore clustered storage solutions that not only provide multiple end users access to shared storage over a network, but allow the storage itself to be distributed and managed over multiple discrete storage systems. In this webcast, we’ll discuss:
•General principles and specific clustered and distributed systems and the facilities they provide built on the underlying storage
•Better known file systems like NFS, GPFS and Lustre along with a few of the less well known
•How object based systems like S3 have blurred the lines between them and traditional file based solutions.
This webcast should appeal to those interested in exploring some of the different ways of accessing & managing storage, and how that might affect how storage systems are provisioned and consumed. POSIX and other acronyms may be mentioned, but no rocket science beyond a general understanding of the principles of storage will be assumed. Contains no nuts and is suitable for vegans!
Both Presidential candidates agree on the need for increased spending on our nation’s infrastructure. While we tend to think first of bridges, roads, and other physical features, cyber is also an area impossible to ignore given the pervasiveness of technology in our lives.
Without question, the speed, sophistication, and volume of cyber security attacks is constantly changing. In the case of nation states, the motives are also shifting from spying and surveillance to using offensive capabilities to attack critical infrastructure, national security assets, and even the political system itself. It’s no longer just about the money; safety and even lives may be at stake.
Adversaries are attacking us at an unmanageable scale. For instance, research sponsored by Department of Homeland Security and NSA showed environments with security event traffic of more than 1 billion alerts per day. Even after reducing the load to 1 million alerts per day with correlation and other tools, more than 20,000 human analysts would be needed to respond.
State-backed adversaries are using automation against us. It’s time we do the same, and projects like Integrated Adaptive Cyber Defense at Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Lab are leading us there.
Join our webcast to learn how public and private organizations are progressing on the security automation continuum from simple security lifecycle management to predictive response strategies.
InSpec is an open-source testing framework with a human-readable language for specifying compliance, security and other policy requirements. Just as Chef treats infrastructure as code, InSpec treats compliance as code. The shift away from having people act directly on machines to having people act on code means that compliance testing becomes automated, repeatable, and versionable.
Traditionally, compliance policies are stored in a spreadsheet, PDF, or Word document. Those policies are then translated into manual processes and tests that often occur only after a product is developed or deployed. With InSpec, you replace abstract policy descriptions with tangible tests that have a clear intent, and can catch any issues early in the development process. You can apply those tests to every environment across your organization to make sure that they all adhere to policy and are consistent with compliance requirements.
Inspec applies DevOps principles to security and risk management. It provides a single collaborative testing framework allowing you to create a code base that is accessible to everyone on your team. Compliance tests can become part of an automated deployment pipeline and be continuously applied. InSpec can be integrated into your software development process starting from day zero and should be applied continuously as a part of any CI/CD lifecycle.
In this webinar, we’ll explore how InSpec can improve compliance across your applications and infrastructure.
Join us to learn about:
- What’s new in InSpec 1.0
- InSpec enhancements for Microsoft Windows systems
- Integration between InSpec and Chef Automate
Who should attend:
Security experts, system administrators, software developers, or anyone striving to improve and harden their systems one test at a time.
Organizations are under constant pressure to improve their ability to recover from a disaster while lowering the cost of the disaster recovery process. Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) is catching the attention of many IT professionals as a viable way to improve recovery times, lessen data loss and lower costs. But DRaaS may not be the right answer for every organization.
In this live webinar Storage Switzerland and Carbonite will explain the differences between DRaaS and DIY DR and how to select the best strategy for your organization.
Over the past 10 years, IT managed services have become universally available and moving from a luxury to more of a must-have. Building on this notion of IT as a service, more companies are recognizing the need for a comprehensive security posture but may lack the ability or desire to manage in-house. This leaves the door open to whom will provide this security as a service.

The challenges of SaaS applications such as Office 365 or Box are already here whether they are enabled by IT or end users themselves. With the adoption of SaaS, your data is now outside your traditional network perimeter and any changes to how the data is shared, who it is shared with and if it is free of malware is no longer known by your organization. History has shown that when a significant risk arises, a point solution is applied to address it. Defenses made up of multiple point products that do not integrate leave gaps that may expose your organization to attack.
Join us for this live webinar where we will examine the various stages of a real-world attack targeting your SaaS applications. You will learn how to prevent these attacks at every single point in the security kill chain with a natively integrated Next Generation Security Platform and learn how to:
* Gain visibility and granular, context-based control of SaaS applications
* Protect corporate data from malicious and inadvertent exposure after it has left the traditional corporate perimeter.
*Satisfy compliance requirements while still maintaining the benefits of SaaS based application services
Vendors of traditional ICT hardware are challenged with integrating new applications in a short time-to-market solution. Even minor modifications can require extensive resources.
