Unifying Data Protection & Lowering Data Risks by Leveraging the Cloud

With data growing in your organization unabated and increasingly becoming fragmented across end-user devices, cloud services and both physical and virtual server environments, the dark specter of data loss or exposure is very real and comes at a high business cost. IT teams are being forced to rethink how to best protect their data without compromising security, compliance or legal requirements. Organizations that can get a few steps ahead in identifying and remediating data risks before they become front page news will more effectively protect their enterprise from exposure and fines.

Join us for this session where we’ll discuss how modern cloud architecture is enabling new innovations for better utility of enterprise data, providing visibility, recoverability and governance capabilities for today’s data landscape, results unattainable with legacy, on premise approaches.

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.

Cloud Security for the Digital World

Even with a focus on business outcomes, many technology decisions are still made short-sided without ensuring the purchase is future-proof and modular enough to meet future needs. Cloud-based security has inherent flexibility that can meet security objectives while also enabling IT and business strategy.

Secure What Matters in the Public Cloud

Securing the cloud – the virtual world – requires a very different approach to the one that has been successfully used within the physical world. No longer is an application static on one server and connected to one network port. The application is now mobile; it is co-resident with many other applications and the traffic that it generates can appear on any number of network ports as the virtual application moves between physical servers. The data and the traffic within that environment rather than the devices or components that make up the infrastructure is causing IT to consider carefully how to maintain visibility to the ’information in motion‘ within their environment.

Intelligent visibility to the traffic and information within the virtual infrastructure is the next evolution of management and monitoring for IT. Whether you’re dealing with public or hybrid cloud environments, a loss of visibility in the cloud can mean a loss of control over several aspects of IT management and data security. In this briefing we will discuss why Visibility is important and how you can overcome blind spots in your private and public cloud architecture.
