It has to protect users wherever they work, and it has to shift to the cloud.Learn from Cisco and its regional partner Annese about the industry’s first Secure Internet Gateway, Cisco Umbrella, and how it can address the enterprise security challenges of today’s mobile, cloud-era, such as Ransomware.9:00 – 9:20: The Enterprise Immune System – A New Approach to Cyber Defense with DarktraceFast-evolving cyber-threats call for a change in the way we protect our most critical information assets, in a digital world more interconnected than ever. Understand from Darktrace how new self-learning technology, known as the “Enterprise Immune System,” marks a fundamental transition in cyber defense, allowing organizations to gain indispensable visibility into their network, and detect emerging cyber-threats that bypass traditional security controls.Thanks to fundamental advances in mathematics and unsupervised machine learning developed at the University of Cambridge, UK, Darktrace's technology is capable of learning what is normal and abnormal within an organization, detecting genuine behavioral anomalies, without using rules or signatures. More than 250 organizations across the world rely on its Enterprise Immune System to defend against novel cyber-threats, including insider threat, and protect themselves in today’s changing threat landscape.Austin Eppstein, one of Darktrace's top cyber security experts, will cover the following subjects during this session: – Learn why “immune system” technologies represent a fundamental innovation for cyber defense – Discover how to apply machine learning and mathematics to detect advanced, internal threats – Understand how to gain 100% network visibility to investigate emerging anomalies in real time – Hear real-world examples of threats detected by the Enterprise Immune System9:20 – 9:40: From Traditional to Next-Generation: Demystifying Hyperconvergence and Enterprise Clouds with NutanixAs enterprises look beyond traditional IT workloads including cloud-native applications and DevOps, they should consider how technologies such as software-defined infrastructure and cloud can drive real-world benefits.During this informative session featuring Scott Ryden of Nutanix, learn how IT can move away from traditional environments to hyperconverged infrastructure and onward to Enterprise Clouds. These new platforms can handle all your challenging applications and business needs, with clear agility, productivity and availability/security benefits. At the end of this session, you'll:- Acquire proven strategies for delivering frictionless IT services while retaining the precise control your business needs- Understand new capabilities that tear down IT silos and unify the technology stack- Learn best practices in virtualization, application design and cloud technologies9:40 – 10:00: Cloud-Based Backup and Disaster Recovery using Amazon Web ServicesAmazon Web Services ("AWS") is the leader in public cloud. Learn from its strategic partner Annese how to create a cloud-based backup and disaster recovery solution, built upon the AWS platform.Coffee Break, Product Demonstrations and Exhibit Area Open, Peer Networking10:30 – 11:10: Private/Public/Hybrid Cloud Strategies, Linux & Windows Containers, Integration with Microsoft AzureIn the opening part of this session John Mutchek, world renown Technical Evangelist at Microsoft and a dynamic/engaging presenter, will discuss the strategic/financial tradeoff and decision-making process between expanding internal IT resources (capex, buying more network/storage hardware) versus using third party/public cloud/service providers (opex, renting these same capabilities).Then more technical discussions, starting with the similarities and differences between a container and a virtual machine, followed by a walk through/demonstration of enabling, creating, deploying and managing Linux and/or Windows containers/resources. There will be an evaluation of when to use which containers, why and how. FYI, a container is an isolated and portable operating environment, often viewed as the next evolution of virtualization. It provides a mechanism for IT to deploy services in a portable, repeatable and predictable manner. For those who are new to containers, this content serves as a jumpstart to accelerate your learning of containers. If you already have experience on Linux containers, the session familiarizes you with the specifics of Windows containers, plus helps bridge and extend your skills for bringing business value to both Linux and Windows communities.The session ends with a detailed assessment of the top five new features in Microsoft's Azure cloud platform for 2017, and how to integrate your organization's public/private/hybrid cloud and container strategies.11:10 – 11:30: Encrypted Email/Messaging, Public Cloud, AI/Big Data, Bitcoin/Digital Non-Cash Currency: Keynote on Top Technology Issues by Angelbeat CEO Ron GerberAngelbeat CEO Ron Gerber is a globally renown and highly respected industry analyst. Mr. Gerber will discuss how these four top technology issues will impact your organization's IT strategy – and your own personal career.- Encrypted Email/Messaging: Seemingly every day, a government or corporate official's email account is hacked, and confidential communications are released. Widespread usage of encrypted email and/or messaging is expected. This will significantly affect ediscovery and digital forensics intiatives, plus general email monitoring and compliance with regulatory/legal guidelines. So what can you do, besides blocking applications?- Public Cloud: It is inevitable that the public cloud – IaaS, PaaS, SaaS, and other "as-a-service" offerings – from Amazon, Microsoft, Google and others will continue to replace work previously handled by internal IT staff. What is the long-term cost of these services? Is it really cheaper? Learn why using multiple cloud providers avoids vendor lockin and gives you more leverage to control costs. Understand why differentiating between employee/internal and customer/external use cases is so important.- Artificial Intelligence/Big Data/IoT: Computing power is growing exponentially, allowing organizations of all sizes to perform analyses previously limited to only the largest corporations. There is a corresponding increase in available data to analyze; for instance, you can now track website traffic by minute, device, ISP, wired vs wireless, etc. Learn how Artificial Intelligence (such as Watson from IBM), Big Data and Internet of Things (IoT) application requirements will impact your current data center/storage infrastructure design, and how/why IT professionals need to work with line-of-business/marketing staff to deploy and understand these new applications.- Bitcoin and Digital/Cashless Currency: With the support of Microsoft, IBM, Federal Reserve and many more organizations, digital/non-cash currency options based on the generic blockchain platform, such as Ethereum and Hyperledger (not Bitcoin), are poised to have mainstream usage. Learn how this emerging technology can impact your organization's technology, financial and marketing plans.End of Event, Raffle Prize Drawings for gift card and other great items!FAQsWhat are Angelbeat's privacy and optin/optout policiesEach attendee acknowledges/understands that financial support from Angelbeat sponsors allows him/her to attend this event at no cost, and that the sponsors will be given your contact information 2 days after the event for follow-up email and telephone communications.
