Eliminating Data Security Threats

Unstructured and semi-structured data presents unique challenges to IT organizations when it comes to identifying who has access, who is accessing and most importantly, who should have access to shared Windows, NAS and UNIX folders, SharePoint sites and Exchange mailboxes and public folders. Information Security organizations have traditionally struggled with the overwhelming manual process of enforcing authentication, authorization and accountability controls on these resources as well as identifying data owners who should be making these decisions. Varonis Systems, a global leader in data governance presents new solutions for helping meet these challenges both today and into the future.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
