Fighting Cybercrime in a Pandemic Threat Landscape
Date: May 05, 2020

View archived webinar

The cyber risk landscape is shifting dramatically during this pandemic. A huge wave of employees are migrating from protected work environments to unprotected home environments, providing a prime attack surface for threat actors. Cyber criminals are looking eagerly for ways to exploit weaknesses in these new teleworkers and gain access to otherwise secure company networks. In addition, the same industry sectors that are disproportionately hit by COVID-19 have become softer targets for cyber criminals, including the Healthcare, Financial, Government, and Telecommunications sectors. Government and private organizations striving to lead us through the COVID-19 crisis have already been targeted by cyber criminals.

These changing dynamics are stretching cybersecurity resources when time-to-action is a critical factor in preempting cyber criminals who will continue to focus on vulnerable targets at increasing speed. Current methods of cyber risk management, incident response, and risk modeling have failed to keep up with the growing sophistication and speed with which cyber adversaries are armed. Traditional threat intelligence models that focus on Indicators of Compromise are problematic, producing a high rate of false positives and delays in execution due to security products that deliver frequent, low-impact alerts.

You need an adaptive approach to keep up and defend your organization. Join our experts as they discuss ways you can navigate the dangerous waters where bad actors lurk.

Disruptive technology such as hyper-converged infrastructure tends to significantly complicate the buying decision. It forces new operational procedures and can impact IT governance, security, and compliance. But even a strong financial justification might not be enough to alter the ingrained processes, interests, and cultural norms surrounding the legacy environment. In many cases, it takes an ROI story.

This webinar will assist anyone interested in how to use financial analysis as a framework to optimize strategic decision-making.

Attend and receive a free copy of the eBook, The ROI Story: A Guide for IT Leaders and the IDC whitepaper, sponsored by Nutanix, Organizations Leverage Nutanix Enterprise Cloud as Scalable, High-Performing, and Cost-Effective Infrastructure Foundation.

The Six Must-Haves for Practical Cloud Security
Date: Mar 19, 2020

View archived webinar

Enterprises large and small are migrating existing applications to the cloud and developing new applications on cloud-native infrastructure. Datacenter security practices don’t translate to cloud environments due to technical and operational changes that disrupt existing security and compliance approaches. As organizations transition to distributed DevOps models, application development velocity increases dramatically. Continuous delivery and software-defined infrastructure result in additions and changes to critical assets on-demand at any time.

This webinar is for security engineers, DevOps engineers, cloud architects, and security executives.

Shifting Security from Speedbump to Digital Accelerator
Date: Mar 12, 2020

View archived webinar

Survival in today’s economy requires businesses to innovate at unprecedented speed to become more responsive to markets and competitors. Application teams are achieving greater agility by leveraging public clouds, containers and Kubernetes. However, agility often comes at the expense of security. If developers operate or make changes at full speed without security keeping the same pace, they risk leaving gaps in the environment that attackers can exploit. But, developers fear that engaging with their security teams will result in application delivery delays and possibly risks slowing down the business. Fortunately, these can be issues of the past as we adopt new processes and technologies that allow agile and secure to co-exist.

Threat & Performance Management: 2 Key Data Sources
Date: Dec 04, 2019

View archived webinar

Many of us show up for work on Monday and immediately find ourselves immersed in the analysis of possible threats or performance problems. Much like a scavenger hunt, sometimes the information we’re looking for is close by, even obvious *if* you know where and how to look. You need the right view of suspicious behavior, and end-user experience, in order to validate the issue, understand the scope and impact, and isolate the problem domain. Learn about how you can use two well known, but often under-utilized data sources that can help you succeed in your hunt for answers.

This session will include a live demonstration of how these data sources, combined with advanced and automated analysis techniques, can help SecOps and NetOps teams to collaborate more effectively.

When a serious threat strikes, without the right security solution that can see across the entire UC network -- IT staff will only have reactive after-the-fact options. Wondering what can your organization do, to best protect itself from these bad actors? Then this webinar is for you.
