Network Security Lifecycles:
Best Practices for Improving and Validating Performance


View on-demand

Led by: Jeff Wilson, Research Director, Cybersecurity Technology
Presented by: IHS Infonetics, Fortinet and IXIA
   

As networks get faster and more complex, the security infrastructure that protects them has to keep pace. In the past, simple metrics like stateful-inspection throughput were the only data points customers had when buying security solutions, but clearly more granular and real-world performance information is needed to understand and quantify how security architectures will perform in the long term. This webinar looks at best practices in security architectures that lead to improved performance, and the solutions available to evaluate and validate that performance.

With the advent of network functions virtualization (NFV), carrier-class WiFi and new managed services models, WiFi is shifting to more scalable and flexible deployments. This webinar analyzes what NFV means for the WiFi network in terms of technology and opportunities, and how virtualization can be implemented by operators to generate revenue from WiFi services.

 
SDN and NFV: Accelerating PoCs to Live Commercial Deployment


View on-demand

Led by: Michael Howard, Senior Research Director, Carrier Networks
Presented by: Infonetics and Spirent
   

Service providers have learned a lot about SDN and NFV over the past 2 years in lab testing and proofs-of-concept (PoCs), and many are moving toward live network commercial deployments. Still, many questions, issues and hurdles remain. To speed up the path to commercial deployment, validation of virtualized network functions (VNFs) and the NFV infrastructure (NFVI) is critical. Advanced tools exist to accelerate NFV deployments whether in a modern software-defined data center or in a mini data center in a cloud central office. This webinar details how operators can validate VNFs, NFVI and network services to speed up commercial deployments.

 
Delivering Security Everywhere with SDN and NFV


View on-demand

Led by: Jeff Wilson, Research Director, Cybersecurity Technology
Presented by: Infonetics and Juniper
   

Without a doubt, the acronyms SDN and NFV are among the most talked about and frequently confused topics in all of networking. While SDN (software-defined networking) and NFV (network functions virtualization) have applicability beyond security, their implementation has serious impact on security architecture and will enable a new generation of security services. Security technology vendors have been working on adapting threat detection and mitigation solutions to work in virtualized environments for years, but what exactly are SDN and NFV, and how will these technologies interact with current and future security solutions? This webinar will answer these questions and more.

Data centers and internet content providers (ICPs) are a vibrant and rapidly-growing market for optical equipment and are currently the center of market attention. But their needs are different than those of traditional carriers, and some of these requirements are well known and others are not. This webinar outlines not only the needs of data centers and content providers, but how equipment manufacturers are building tailored products to address the unique needs of these customers.

 
Service Provider Experiences with NFV:
The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly


View on-demand

Led by: Michael Howard, Senior Research Director, Carrier Networks
Presented by: IHS Infonetics, Accedian, Juniper and Spirent
   

Service providers have been deploying and attempting to deploy network functions virtualization (NFV) for over a year now, and it hasnt been as easy or simple as it appears in slideware. A majority of operators that planned to commercially deploy NFV in the past year still have not done so, citing immature technology and fitting NFV into existing networks and processes as the major stumbling blocks. But many operators that have rolled out NFV say the technology is good enough to deploy in contained domains, and theyve learned a lot. Of course, deploying new services using NFV without disrupting existing revenue-bearing networks is the big challenge. This webinar weighs in on the good experiences to repeat, the bad experiences to learn from, and some ugly paths to avoid.

 
OT Security and Critical Infrastructure Protection:
The Fundamentals


View on-demand

Led by: Jeff Wilson, Research Director, Cybersecurity Technology
Presented by: IHS Infonetics and Wurldtech
   

The publicity surrounding the discovery of the Stuxnet worm in 2010 forced companies around the globe to take a serious look at the security posture of their OT (operational technology), particularly the security and visibility of SCADA and ICS operations. Solving the broad security problem for OT requires a deep understanding of cyber-physical systems, facilities and product development practices. The increasing connectivity of intelligent machines is compelling companies to take steps to secure their industrial devices, the supply chain and more. This webinar looks at fundamental OT security practices that OT managers and planners need to know to mitigate risks across people, processes and technologies.

Which Architecture Is Best for SDN?

Thursday
Sep 17, 2015

ON24 online webcast

Led by: Cliff Grossner, Research Director, Data Center, Cloud and SDN
Presented by: Infonetics and Fujitsu / Two Sponsor Positions Available

Important use cases for the data center (DC) have been identified, such as private cloud DC, automated provisioning, and disaster recovery. The leaders in the SDN market serving the enterprise will be solidified during the next 2 years as 2014 lab trials give way to live production deployments in 2015 and significant growth by 2016. Network vendors, virtualization vendors, and specialized SDN vendors all want buyers to believe they provide the best option. This webinar examines the choices for SDN architecture and discusses the advantages and disadvantages of each approach, providing guidelines for purchase-decision makers.

 
Securing the Internet of Things

Wednesday
Sep 23, 2015

ON24 online webcast

Led by: Jeff Wilson, Research Director, Cybersecurity Technology
Presented by: Infonetics and Freescale / Two Sponsor Positions Available
   

This year, nearly 8 billion devices will be connected to the internet. The majority of new device growth going forward will come from devices such as home automation devices, smart grid devices, industrial control systems, personal medical devices, and an endless stream of new "things." While the usefulness of these devices is undeniable, so is the new security threat they represent. IoT security issues are already a mainstream talking point. The highly-publicized Stuxnet worm was used to hack a control device in an Iranian nuclear power station 4 years ago, and in December 2012 the HBO series Homeland depicted the Vice President of the U.S. being killed by hacking his pacemaker. This webinar examines how businesses are already starting to network a wide range of new devices and explores the need for practical solutions for integrating those devices into security infrastructure.

Solving the M2M Device Interoperability Issue


Led by: John Byrne, Sr. Principal Analyst, Internet of Things
   

With all the hype surrounding the Internet of Things (IoT), Infonetics surveys confirm that enterprises in a number of verticals are actively developing machine-to-machine (M2M) strategies to generate incremental revenue, reduce costs, and improve customer service. Common standards to support device and service activation across multiple radio technologies, frequency bands, and device operating systemswhich dont yet existrepresent the holy grail. Instead, a variety of competing standards bodies and architectures have emerged, virtually guaranteeing that no common standard will emerge anytime soon. As a result, operators and enterprises must develop strategies to work around this challenge to ensure the current M2M momentum does not slow. This webinar provides enterprises with strategies to eliminate, or work around, interoperability concerns and ensure that M2M applications can be onboarded and offered across multiple technologies and platforms with as little friction as possible.
