A New Way to Look at IT Security with Endpoint Modeling

Endpoint compromise has been a consistent theme in nearly every modern security breach. This discussion makes the case for a new approach to IT security yielding compelling results and visibility into all network Endpoint behavior. With great accuracy, extremely low noise, and supporting evidence, endpoint modeling discovers and tracks the regular behavior of each device in a way that makes possible the automatic recognition of potentially harmful activities. Join us as we introduce endpoint modeling, discuss why this is feasible and necessary for enterprises today, and how this solution is being used successfully in organizations large and small, in traditional networks and cloud environments including AWS VPCs, Azure and others.

Keeping the Enterprise Always On with IT Resilience

Your organization is always running and can’t afford downtime during a disaster or the traditional time it takes to recover from one.  Backup solutions don’t solve these problems as they are not true disaster recovery for the business.  What types of disasters will impact the business?  Learn about disaster recovery scenarios, and also the questions to ask and answer when planning your disaster recovery solution to drive true IT resilience.  Learn about which decisions impact the business in which ways, and how to avoid making sacrifices for your always-on organization.

The Impact of DDoS Attacks

Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks attempt to make an online service unavailable by overwhelming it with traffic from multiple sources. They target a wide variety of important resources, from consumer-facing financial and news websites, to internally-oriented employee intranet links, and present a major challenge in today’s cloud-based world to making sure people can access important information and mission-critical applications. Arbor will discuss the misconceptions & facts about Modern day DDoS attacks and the Advance Threat landscape and how they can help customers mitigate their risk.

Arbor Networks, the security division of NETSCOUT, helps secure the world’s largest enterprise and service provider networks from these DDoS attacks and advanced threats.

In this session, you’ll learn:

  • How your email can be used as an entry point for multiple types of attack
  • The damaging impact attacks have on organizations
  • Why your employees could be the weakest link in your email security
  • How to enhance your email security and thus your overall cyber resilience
