Around the world, IT teams are
answering calls from frantic employees,
concerned about error messages,
blue screens, viruses and unexpected
accidents. When it comes to technology,
you can’t always predict what’s going
to happen. But you can be prepared for
when these problems arise.
Your college or university probably has hundreds of systems and applications containing sensitive data. Find out how cloud identity governance can close your security gaps by telling you where these files reside, what each file contains and who can access this data.

Managing employee experiences is not about pinpointing a single event or moment. People leaders need the ability to collect feedback at every moment that matters and take action to close experience gaps. With Employee Experience Management solutions from SAP, you can use a wide range of employee listening mechanisms across a variety of engagement channels to create a “digital open door.”
Every day, employees upload vast numbers of presentations, PDFs, emails and reports to cloud storage providers like Box and Dropbox. Did you know this exposes your organization to serious risk of security breaches and compliance violations?
Download this brief to find out the most effective way to close your security gaps.
“EDR alone is simply not enough to empower security pros to detect, investigate, and respond to attacks at the pace they need to keep up with modern attackers. A broader detection and response approach is needed.”
Register now and receive this exclusive white paper. Dave Gruber, ESG Senior Analyst takes a look at how you can increase the efficiency and effectiveness of detection and response through XDR, along with:
• Strategic insight into the current state of threat detection and response, providing you with ESG’s comprehensive research and findings.
• Current challenges affecting today’s organizations, including the time and resources required and numerous gaps that EDR exposes.
• Valuable foresight into what’s next and how XDR—detection and response across email, endpoint, servers, cloud workloads, and network—can help solve these issues.

We’ve arrived at the second anniversary of the Equifax breach and we now know much more about what happened due to the August 2018 release of the GAO Report. New information came out of that report that was not well-understood at the time of the breach. For example, did you know that while Equifax used a tool for network layer decryption, they had certificates nine months out of date? This lapse gave the threat actors all the time they needed to break in and exfiltrate reams of personal data. As soon as Equifax updated the certs on their decryption tools, they began to realize what happened.
On the heels of the Equifax breach, we are reminded of the importance of efficient decryption for effective threat detection. That’s more important than ever today; Ponemon Institute reports that 50% of all malware attacks utilize encryption.
During this webinar, we’ll talk about:
-How TLS/SSL encryption has become a threat vector
-Why decryption is essential to security and how to effectively pe

AOS delivers powerful, intent-driven automation of network services in vendor-agnostic environments by delivering it as an easily consumable service in response to consumer-specified intent. Network devices serve packets, AOS services serve application workloads.
According to numerous studies, 70-80% of outages are due to configuration change applied to a living system, and not due to initial deployment. Initial, one-time deployment can be seen as sort of a “hello world” application; the real complexities arise as the system evolves. With AOS, configuration, telemetry, and expectations are derived from the single source of truth - the intent - in an idempotent fashion, and as such there is no implementation difference between initial deployment or change management.
Intent Based Analytcs (IBA), an important feature of AOS and a main enabler for closed loop telemetry is described in this whitepaper. Prerequisites for this whitepaper include a basic understanding of the Apstra AOS soluton, such as from the white paper ttled “The Apstra Operatng System (AOS) Architecture Overview.
You may have read in the news about horrific security gaps that have the potential of bringing down whole infrastructures, leaking critical business and personal data, and exposing organizations to massive liability.
There is no question that improving organizations’ security posture is a critical requirement for infrastructure and security teams.
Years ago, there were proprietary networking solutions like IBM Token Ring. Every new PO had to go to the same vendor if customers wanted to ensure connectivity.
Then came Ethernet which promised to be an open interoperable standard. However, vendors recreated lock-in by implementing proprietary VLAN extensions such as private VLANs.
Typically, and since the dawn of time, network infrastructure teams chose the hardware and switch Operating System (OS) first, then designed their infrastructure, including how their infrastructure was built around this choice.
The response to the question “How is one Intent-Based Networking offering different than the others?” typically sounds subjective, descriptive, and open to interpretation. What is needed is a tangible, objective, and fact-based nomenclature that can help you rationalize the maturity of Intent-Based Networking solutions. Using this nomenclature, we should be able to map Intent-Based Networking solutions to a specific maturity level, starting with Level 0 (low maturity/incomplete) up to Level 3 which enables a fully capable Intent-Based Networking solution (mature/complete).
Apstra introduced the notion of Intent-Based Networking and Self-Operating Networks™ in June of 2016, and in our blog “Intent Based Networking: What Is It” we provided a definition of Intent-Based Networking, listing capabilities that a complete Intent-Based Networking system needs to provide. The goal is to categorize maturity levels of various Intent-Based Networking implementations and enable network operators to
When Bloomberg Television opened its state-of-the-art broadcast facility in the company’s new European Headquarters in London last year, network engineers from the company’s IT infrastructure team collaborated with Apstra to successfully pilot its technology in order to gain visibility across and more effectively manage the network fabric supporting the building’s media production systems.
Yahoo Japan Corporation, one of Japan’s largest Internet service providers, is deploying Clos fabric networks for efficiently addressing their ever-growing data center traffic. Apstra® was selected for streamlining the design, build, and operations of these networks.

The more holistic view of risk a property underwriter can get, the better decisions they are likely to make. In order to build up a detailed picture of risk at an individual location, underwriters or agents at coverholders have, until now, had to request exposure analytics on single risks from their portfolio managers and brokers. Also, they had to gather supplementary risk data from a range of external resources, whether it is from Catastrophe Risk Evaluation and Standardizing Target Accumulations (CRESTA) zones to look-ups on Google Maps.
When evaluating single risks, underwriters and coverholders typically have to request exposure analytics from their portfolio managers and brokers, or gather their own supplementary risk data from a range of external resources, whether it is from Catastrophe Risk Evaluation and Standardizing Target Accumulations (CRESTA) zones, through to lookups on Google Maps. But all this takes valuable time, requires multiple user licenses and can generate information that is inconsistent with the underlying modeling data at the portfolio level.
