9:00am Unlock the Key to Repel Ransomware with Kaspersky9:00am - 9:30amYour screen freezes and a dialogue box pops up to tell you that your computer is locked and your files will all be gone forever if you don’t pay up. Since many victims are willing to pay the ransom, this type of cryptomalware is on the rise, netting millions of dollars for cybercriminals looking for a substantial return on their minimal investment. During this session you will hear from Mark Villinski of Kaspersky Lab, on what they as a major security vendor are seeing in this growing area of focus for both security vendors and cybercriminals. Areas of focus will include: - Common ransomware scenarios and delivery mechanisms - Trends in this growing form of cybercrime - Recommendations to help your organization avoid being a victim Kaspersky is the world's largest privately held, and among the top four security vendors, operating in 200 countries and protecting 400 million users.
9:30 Wi-Fi Network Architecture, End User Performance Requirements, Wireless/Mobile Security with Aerohive9:30 - 10:00By the end of 2013 there were more mobile devices than people on earth, and by 2020 it is predicted that 30 Billion devices will be connected to the internet. This is not surprising, given that every tablet, laptop and smartphone can only connect to the Internet via wireless, and the rapid adoption of Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) programs by organizations of all sizes. This massive influx of devices has introduced a new era in the world of Wi-Fi. IT professionals are facing enormous challenges, balancing capacity, flexibility, financial and QoS requirements, while simultaneously evaluating new technologies like 802.11ac. Plus there is increased demand for machine-to-machine mobile communications, seamless management of wired & wireless network connections, and enhanced security to prevent Internet-of-Things (IoT) attacks (wifi-enabled thermostats and cameras were the source of the mid-October DDoS attack). Fortunately Shane Moore from Aerohive will help you understand these issues and offer practical solutions. Mr. Moore will demonstrate cloud-based management systems that control remote access points, help you understand how different antennae designs can improve coverage, and why access points from different vendors, even if they operate under the same 802.11 standard, nonetheless have vastly different performance.
10:00 Multi-Vendor Network Infrastructure Complexity; How to Simplify with Glue Networks10:00 - 10:30Typical networks have become increasingly complex and require constant attention, especially when there is a multi-vendor architecture/configuration. To greatly simplify network management, Glue Networks created Gluware, a software-based orchestration platform that reduces life cycle costs and boosts network agility. Michael Haugh from Glue Networks will demonstrate how network operations teams can use Gluware to simplify tasks like switch management, ACL, QoS, firewall rules and many other time consuming functions. Gluware makes the network work for operations - not the other way around. End of Event, Raffle Prize Drawings for gift cards and other great items!
