Segmentation Made Simple
Most networks are really good at making you feel overwhelmed , ill-equipped and exposed. Meanwhile, you’re being tasked with connecting virtually every ‘ thing’, including machines and endpoints never intended to be networked. How can you securely connect such a wide array of distributed systems, devices and equipment, at scale?
The practical way forward is networking endpoints with provable identities, using automated, policy-based orchestration for enterprise scale. Now, local and wide area micro-segmentation is not only possible, but simple.
As more machines require secure connectivity, networking seems to have become a black-magic, since it’s impossible to give every device its own unique IP address. There are an assortment of workarounds using multi-NAT environments, or Carrier Grade Nat, but it’s now virtually impossible to punch through and connect distributed systems. IP address limitations are prohibitive, making functions such as cloud peering between VPCs virtually impossible.
In this session, you’ll learn how to overcome previously impossible networking hurdles by giving your machines and endpoints a unique and provable identity. You can now easily and instantly provision, connect, failover or guaranteeing any connected resource using simple point-and-click orchestration for all of your “things” – on the ground, on the move, or in the cloud.

Navigating the Noise – How to Evaluate and Select a Managed Detection and Response (MDR) Provider
Managed Detection and Response (MDR) is a hot topic in cybersecurity today — these four words describe a singular solution that means so many things to different people. Despite differing definitions and viewpoints, the end goal is to keep your environment safe from advanced adversaries and undetected threats.
Secureworks suggests that any MDR provider be evaluated first and foremost on the following five key areas. Any solution without this suite of capabilities is not MDR, no matter what you call it.
- Endpoint Detection and Response
- Incident Response Capabilities
- Intellectual Property
- Beyond Endpoints
- Global Threat Visibility and Threat Intelligence
MDR can be a nebulous label with a definition that depends on who you ask. Secureworks uses telemetry from a variety of sources, including infrastructure, network and endpoint devices, and also can take response actions across different devices. Machine learning and artificial intelligence help identify anomalous events and continuous threat hunting with specialized capabilities.
In this session, Ryan Heath will walk through the 5 key components of a robust MDR solution and give guidance on what to look for as you evaluate the viability of MDR in your organization.

The Evolution of IRM: Protecting Sensitive Data In Today’s Collaborative, Digital Economy
In order to do business today, organizations have to externally collaborate & share data. Traditional security has struggled with how to easily address this – whether with onprem or cloud collaboration repositories, such as OneDrive or Box.
IRM, or Information Rights Management, has evolved so business’ can easily secure, track & monitor their data anywhere it travels – and revoke it back in real-time! Learn how this space is changing to adapt to the collaborative, digital economy we do business in today – and why traditional security is only able to fulfill part of the requirement.
