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.

Evolving Enterprise Identity: From the Data Center to Cloud and Mobile

User-driven computing models are generating a need for identity services that sit at the intersection of data center, mobile and SaaS resources. How can you give users the single login they want and IT the single identity infrastructure they need?

Learn how — Join Centrify for a discussion of the architectural, security and operational considerations for adopting SaaS and mobile computing using a single, unified approach.

Overcome enterprise identity challenges:

  • Discover the benefits of centralized authentication, authorization, policy, and auditing for IT resources across the data center, cloud and mobile.
  • Find out how to address password sprawl with secure, controlled access to Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) apps and other cloud services across PCs, iOS and Android devices.

Real-time Security Analytics (RtSA): Automating the Discovery, Understanding, and Action Against Advanced Security Threats

What does an advanced attack look like?  Why are traditional products failing to provide protection?  What is a security analytic?  Who is the target user for an RtSA solution?  This presentation will address these questions and explain how RtSA can intelligently ingest, automatically contextualize, and render advanced analytics quickly by converting millions of logs and alerts into actor-based actionable intelligence.  Ultimately, it is about cost-effectively reducing business risk from advanced malware and attackers by speeding time-to-detect, time-to-understand, and time-to-act.

Dynamic Security against Modern Threats in a Virtualized Environment

Securing the network has never been more challenging.  First, threats are increasingly targeted, fast-moving and evasive.  Second, the computing environment is constantly changing with initiatives like virtualization and BYOD.  This presentation reviews these challenges and offers approaches to network security that keeps pace with both the dynamic computing and threat landscapes.

Are we still Secure?

PRISM has been disclosed and now we live in a new security concise world. We always thought this was happening, but now we know exactly how it is happening. Are we still secure? Can we trust our encryption? We will discuss the use of standards based federation, open source encryption, and limiting the exposure of your end users.

Embracing Mobility 
Liberate Employees to Work Their Way – and Empower Your Business

The growing use of smartphones and tablets along with
Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) initiatives are fundamentally changing the game.  However, 76% of IT leaders see security as a barrier to enabling employees to choose their own devices, technology and applications at will. You have the unique opportunity to empower your organization by helping it embrace the new possibilities of mobility and its promise of collaboration, productivity, and innovation – without compromising on security.

NetScout: Bringing the Network & Application perspective to the Security Solution

The NetScout nGenius Service Assurance Solution manages end-to-end IP Service Delivery from a single platform.  Despite significant efforts in securing the perimeter and end-points, networks continue to be penetrated and assets compromised. These issues can often be caught in Network and Application activity by observing changes in behavior or conducting a forensic investigation into an event. Holistic visibility across applications, servers and networks enables us to understand all aspects of service performance and interrelationships.  Additionally, IT organizations rely on an increasing number of diverse packet-flow analysis tools to enable performance management, security, compliance and forensics.  The nGenius Packet Flow switch transforms access of network traffic and removes the barriers to monitoring tool attachment commonly encountered with traditional approaches based solely on TAPs and mirror/SPAN ports. Network traffic is streamlined, extended, filtered, aggregated, and scaled across the enterprise to enhance the scope and efficacy of network monitoring, performance management, and security strategies.
