Preparing Your Network for the Mobility Explosion: How to Turn BYOD into Productivity

The real drain on IT resources when evaluating a networking vendor solution is not simply getting devices onto the network – it’s what to do with them once they’re there. Having a way to securely connect and monitor managed and unmanaged devices, reporting on security compliance, ensuring the devices can use available services and assets and are restricted from those which they should not access, and making sure the devices don’t overwhelm available network resources are the real game changers for a successful BYOD implementation.

This session will discuss the necessary connectivity and productivity requirements in order to ensure your network is truly ready for the mobility explosion, including an overview of necessary access, authentication, and security options as well as focusing on the equally essential features required to ensure your network is prepared to make all devices attached to it productive and compliant.

Breaking the Vicious Cycle of the Malnet Threat and Botnet Infections

The Vicious Cycle of Malnets
In 2012, Blue Coat expects malware distribution infrastructures will be responsible for more than two- thirds of all malicious cyber-attacks.  Malnets (malware networks) are extensive infrastructures embedded in the Internet and designed to deliver mass market attacks to the largest possible audience on a continuous basis. Hear the details of Blue Coat Systems latest 2012 Security Report and learn why stopping the attacks using traditional zero-day defenses is a losing proposition.  Learn how cyber-criminals have created a vicious cycle of malware attacks and why you need new solutions in order to protect your users and break this vicious cycle.  In this session you learn:

  • What threat vectors are being exploited by cyber-criminals to target their attacks
  • Why the 'whack-a-mole' defense strategy just doesn't work against todays attacks
  • Why 'zero-day' defense is insufficient and why you need negative-day protection
  • Where malnet infrastructures are located and hide and why they are nearly impossible to eradicate

Bring Your Own Service - The Effects of Cloud Services on Compliance and Data Protection

Recent research has revealed that organizations struggle to offer collaboration technologies that compete with free, cloud-based, consumer services in terms of functionality. However, these free services offer few of the security measures that have become standard in the corporate data center, and offer little or no guarantee for organizations that data stored in these services will be protected in accordance with organizational standards.

As a result, 80% of organizations do not currently allow their users to use cloud file sync services, and only 31% plan to do so in the future. As only 59% of organizations report to actively block these services from their networks, and as many workers now have access to their own mobile internet services and devices, it is a logical conclusion that considerable amounts of organizational data are now being created and transmitted entirely outside of the organizational perimeter, and outside of its control.
This presentation will review the findings of our research, discuss techniques for how organizations may assess whether they are protecting themselves from cloud data exodus or running the risk of losing control over their information assets.

Amy Tam brings over 13 years of technology industry experience to her role as Senior Regional Consulting Engineer at Varonis Systems, a software company specializing in Data Governance.    Prior to joining Varonis, she held a number of IT management, consulting, security, and project management roles with companies in a variety of industries, including manufacturing, financial services, enterprise software development, military, and technology services. Since joining Varonis in 2011, Amy has helped many companies design, build and maintain flexible, robust and secure information technology systems.

Key Steps of Protection for a First Line of Defense - Defending Against DDoS Attacks and Unwanted Traffic

With the number of successful attacks on the rise, it is evident that firewalls, intrusion prevention systems, and traditional security infrastructures are not equipped to combat them.  These technologies were not built to stop DDoS attacks, undesirable behaviors, advanced evasion attacks and other unwanted malicious traffic targeting your infrastructure.

Corero Network Security, an organization’s First Line of Defense, is the leading provider of Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) defense.

1:45pm-2:15pm Session Seven


Greg Orr

The Dynamic World of Threat Detection, Containment & Response

Regardless of size, network security is a top priority for all organizations. Networks are more vulnerable than ever due to the inherent risk of facilitating remote access in conjunction with the volume of traffic and the speed at which that traffic is flowing. As organizations migrate from 1Gb to 10Gb and beyond, network security tools struggle to keep up with these increasing connection speeds as the tools may not be designed to process the volume of packet traffic going through the protected link. Therefore, it is vital to implement security architectures and strategies that not only prevent security breaches, but can also dynamically react to potential threats and scale to meet future needs.

Enterprise WAN Challenges in 2013

Every Wide Area Network (WAN) connection has unique challenges. In some instances, there is simply not enough bandwidth. In other instances, the bandwidth that does exist cannot be utilized effectively because packets are being dropped and/or delivered out-of-order. In still other scenarios, the challenge is WAN latency. And all too often in modern networks, all three instances are posing challenges to traditional apps and newer Enterprise applications.
