This free 1-hour webinar from GigaOm Research brings together experts in IT infrastructure and cloud featuring GigaOm analyst Mark Thiele and special guest from Packet, Jacob Smith. The discussion will focus on what can be done if a business has a need or desire to run application environments outside public cloud; and, in the age of public cloud adoption, what can companies do to remain competitive from an IT perspective.
Most companies aren’t professional data center or infrastructure builders, and they shouldn’t have to be. This is in fact a driver for cloud adoption. Price, Performance, Proximity, Pride and Politics are reasons why enterprises might need more control at times over their infrastructure.
This 1-hour webinar will explore:
The considerations an enterprise must make when looking for a private cloud solution
Examples of what others have done with managed private cloud
If Managed Private Cloud can be cost-competitive with Public Cloud or on-prem IT.

Nearly all cyberattacks must cross the network, but security analysts often struggle to make quick sense of traffic at scale for hunting and incident response, trapped between data-starved logs (e.g. Netflow) and too much data (full packets) to analyze in time. What if instead there was a “Goldilocks’ for network data?
This free 1-hour webinar from GigaOm Research brings together experts in network traffic analysis, featuring GigaOm analyst Simon Gibson and a special guest from Corelight, Steve Smoot. They’ll discuss the evolution of network analysis and explain how open-source Zeek (formerly Bro) came to be the network traffic analysis tool of choice for security analysts to make fast sense of their traffic.

Securing cloud environments is different from securing traditional data centers and endpoints.
The dynamic nature of the cloud requires continuous assessment and automation to avoid
misconfigurations, compromises, and breaches.
It can also be difficult to gain complete visibility across dynamic and rapidly changing cloud
environments — limiting your ability to enforce security at scale. On top of these challenges, cloud
governance is critical to maintain compliance with regulatory requirements and security policies as
Because cloud deployments are not just implemented once and left untouched, organizations need
to consider how to integrate security into their CI/CD pipeline and software development lifecycle.
Implementing a security solution that addresses cloud challenges requires deep security and cloud
expertise that organizations often do not have.
Once in the cloud, organizations manage and create environments via automation, adapt their
workloads to changes by automa
Software development has evolved from rigid waterfall methodologies to more streamlined
approaches, like Agile and more recently DevOps. This evolution has taken place in
large part to shorten development life cycles and meet increased business demands.
Today, businesses of all sizes have built an advantage by implementing a DevOps culture
and processes, which break down silos between development and operations, allowing
organizations to create better software faster.
As organizations implement DevOps on Amazon Web Services (AWS), they need to
understand the security implications. The AWS Shared Responsibility Model makes clear
that AWS secures what’s “on the cloud,” while the customer is responsible for securing
their assets “in the cloud.” When AWS customers go about securing their DevOps
environments, they need to do so in a way that provides robust protection without limiting
Organizations often struggle to protect business-critical applications from ever-increasing threats. Many organizations lack the security staff, and sometimes knowledge, to mitigate the seriousness—and scope—of the attacks they constantly face. APN Security Competency Partner Imperva provides automated security solutions that can help you defend against both known and zero-day attacks and increase visibility across your entire Amazon Web Services (AWS) environment, to rapidly stop attacks and quickly identify the real threats that need to be investigated.
Join our upcoming webinar to learn how DigiCert has protected both their AWS and on-premises environments from DDoS attacks and other threats by using Imperva’s SaaS Web Application Security solution. This versatile security offering helps keep application workloads safe across cloud and on-premises environments and can be managed from a single pane of glass, enabling security teams to more effectively and efficiently secure business
Fulfilling the security and compliance obligations within the AWS Shared Responsibility Model is critical as organizations shift more of their infrastructure to the cloud. Most infrastructure and application monitoring solutions haven’t caught up to meet these new requirements, forcing IT and security teams to resort to traditional monitoring strategies that don’t allow for innovation and growth.
Join us for this webinar to learn how Splunk and AWS give you end-to-end visibility across your applications and help quickly detect potential security threats. Find out how Experian leveraged Splunk Cloud to deliver log data in near real-time to their operations teams for analysis and monitoring, roll out new features/updates faster, create reusable features to deploy in multiple customer environments to scale with their business, and ensure adherence to security and compliance standards.
While digital transformation helps create many business opportunities, it can also expose your organization to new vulnerabilities and regulations which require new security solutions.

Businesses are often challenged with the complexities of protecting their physical, virtual, and cloud workloads while also meeting their part of the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Shared Responsibility Model. IT security leaders are inundated with too many security tools that aren’t built for their specific environments. Additionally, these responsibilities often entail large amounts of manual processes and people to administer them. As such, there is a need for a solution that provides a secure environment for you to transact your business without slowing you down.
Trend Micro™ Deep Security™ is optimized to support the broadest set of platforms and environments (on-premises, virtual, on AWS, or containers) while delivering multiple threat defense techniques to help DevOps teams rapidly detect security incidents, fulfill compliance requirements, and securely deploy containers.

We’re in the era of hybrid cloud, an integrated combination of public and private cloud environments. Most organizations moving into the public cloud today are making strategic decisions about which applications should go to the cloud and which should stay on-premises. Get acquainted with hybrid cloud management strategies and solutions, and learn what critical components must be addressed as you plan your hybrid cloud environment.
Security is a looming issue for businesses. The threat landscape is increasing, and attacks are becoming more sophisticated. Emerging technologies like IoT, mobility, and hybrid IT environments now open new business opportunity, but they also introduce new risk. Protecting servers at the software level is no longer enough. Businesses need to reach down into the physical system level to stay ahead of threats. With today’s increasing regulatory landscape, compliance is more critical for both increasing security and reducing the cost of compliance failures. With these pieces being so critical, it is important to bring new levels of hardware protection and drive security all the way down to the supply chain level. Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) has a strategy to deliver this through its unique server firmware protection, detection, and recovery capabilities, as well as its HPE Security Assurance.
For midsize firms around the world with 100 to 999 employees, advanced technology plays an increasingly important role in business success. Companies have been adding cloud resources to supplement on-premise server, storage, and networking capabilities. At the same time, growth of mobile and remote workers is also changing how companies need to support workers to allow them to be as productive as possible. Like larger companies, midsize firms must make sure that they are effectively coordinating on-premise, public cloud, and private cloud capabilities. Unlike large companies, though, midsize firms are limited in both financial and technical resources to design and coordinate effective solutions to meet specific needs. Rather than invest in a major overhaul of their IT environments, midsize firms have to move incrementally, supplementing current resources with new cloud and on-premise capabilities that provide the performance needed to prosper in an increasingly competitive environment.
Applications are the engines that drive today’s digital businesses. When the infrastructure that powers those applications is difficult to administer, or fails, businesses and their IT organizations are severely impacted. Traditionally, IT assumed much of the responsibility to ensure availability and performance. In the digital era, however, the industry needs to evolve and reset the requirements on vendors.
HPE Nimble Storage has broken away from convention and transformed how storage is managed and supported with the HPE InfoSight predictive analytics platform. HPE engaged ESG to conduct a quantitative survey of the HPE Nimble Storage installed base, as well as non-HPE Nimble Storage customers, to better assess how HPE InfoSight positively impacts customer environments.

Industrial enterprises around the world are retooling their factories with advanced technologies to boost manufacturing flexibility and speed, achieving new levels of overall equipment effectiveness (OEE), supply chain responsiveness, and customer satisfaction in the process. This renaissance reflects very real pressures industry players face today. For years, traditional factories have been operating at a disadvantage, impeded by production environments that are “disconnected”—at the very least strictly gated—to corporate business systems, to supply chains, and to customers and partners.
Virtualization has transformed the data center over the past decade. IT departments use virtualization to consolidate multiple server workloads onto a smaller number of more powerful servers. They use virtualization to scale existing applications by
adding more virtual machines to support them, and they deploy new applications without having to purchase additional servers to do so. They achieve greater resource utilization by balancing workloads across a large pool of servers in real time—and they respond more quickly to changes in workload or server availability by moving virtual machines between physical servers. Virtualized environments support private clouds on which application engineers can now provision their own virtual servers and networks in environments that expand and contract on demand.
