Fighting Modern Malware

Legacy approaches to malware defense are no longer enough to fight modern malware which are often tailored, one-of-a-kind, 0-day attacks delivered via common protocols like HTTP web browsing or FTP.  In this presentation, learn how to assess your security controls to see how they fare against modern malware and walk away with new strategies to better protect your organization from targeted attacks.

Data Protection from the Inside, Out & Beyond

It is not news that viruses, worms and other malicious applications are currently being utilized to transfer data across a broad variety of protocols. Cloud providers allow individuals (maybe your employees) to create powerful "private cloud" computing environments. 

These environments permit individuals to copy data from their own home or work machine to their virtual "cloud" machine with a simple "Copy & Paste" or "Drag & Drop". Such actions are mostly done utilizing the HTTPS protocol but often we see Cloud providers using Secure RDP. 

The current, aging Data Loss Prevention model, developed in large part to focus on compliance, is not adequate enough to address these issues. There are well known failures which have not only given "DLP" a bad name; these failures have brought a huge cost to organizations in time, money and most importantly, in brand tarnishment.

Join us for an educational session with a live demo, explaining HOW you can protect your most prized asset:  your data, using Next Generation DLP

Top 5 Considerations for a Secure Enterprise WLAN

Though not yet seen as a complete replacement for Ethernet, Wi-Fi is fast becoming a preferred medium of enterprise network access. The rate of adoption is only expected to grow in the coming years with continued influx of mobile devices and newer standards like 802.11ac. But, enterprises need to carefully evaluate their wireless LAN (WLAN) requirements from the perspective of Wi-Fi access (e.g., coverage, capacity, applications), management (e.g., role-based administration, policies, network monitoring), security (e.g., BYOD, wireless IDS/IPS), network architecture (e.g., single campus vs. distributed deployment, or controller-based vs. controller-less vs. cloud) and of course, budget (e.g., Capex vs. Opex), before investing into their WLAN project. Because not all enterprise WLAN solutions are created equal, and it's important to do your homework to be able to pick the right solution to meet YOUR needs.

Join AirTight Networks in this informative session to break through the marketing jargon and discuss the five key criteria you should consider to define your WLAN strategy. So as you get ready to invest into your next WLAN rollout -- whether it's a greenfield deployment, an expansion, or a replacement of old gear -- you are well prepared!

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.

Considerations to Protect and Speed Up Your Network

With the explosion of BYOD and the seemingly ubiquitous use of handheld devices, IT organizations are challenged to maintain security and control and mitigate the impact of the associated explosion of network traffic as a result of these devices.  These devices introduce security, control and performance issues that must be addressed.

This presentation discusses:

  • Growth/size of BYOD market and the network traffic they generate
  • Growth of IP based network traffic and the flood of video
  • BYOD challenges vs traditional laptop/desktop
  • Threat landscape – mobile threat vectors – mobile malware delivery networks
  • The need for Web and mobile Web application and operational controls
  • The need for highly granular network visibility, optimization and control of network traffic

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.

Onboarding Personal Devices to Corporate Networks

Many IT organizations are being asked to allow personal devices onto corporate networks.  Unlike corporate-issued devices that are well-managed and under IT’s control, this new Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) initiative introduces a unique set of security challenges that require a balance of flexibility, visibility, security.

This presentation will explain the concept of a “BYOD Blueprint” and lessons learned from onboarding personal devices to over 800 networks around the world.

Five Security Questions to Ask When Choosing a Cloud Provider

Increasingly, companies are moving components of their business operations to the cloud, including backup and disaster recovery. The reasons are compelling:

  • Reduced IT expenses
  • Greater efficiency
  • Greater collaboration and mobility

But news headlines are a stark reminder that not all Clouds are created equal. When evaluating a Cloud service provider to manage your critical business data, it’s important to understand how your security goals and those of the Cloud provider are aligned.

Asking five critical questions today could save you considerable headaches tomorrow. Learn what these questions are and how they can help you ensure a secure cloud solution for your organization.
