Mobile devices from inside and outside your network are continuously crossing mixed physical and cloud infrastructure whose security may not always be under your control. As a result, your network is being constantly exposed to malware threats. And DNS is their main pathway. More than 90 percent of malware uses DNS to communicate with command and control servers, steal data, or redirect traffic to malicious sites. Existing security controls and perimeter defenses are not designed to prevent, isolate, and remediate DNS-based malware threats.During this technical, informative and highly relevant talk, you will learn how Infoblox DNS Firewall offers proactive and real-time network protection against fast-evolving, elusive malware threats, which try to exploit DNS to communicate with command and control (C&C) servers and botnets. Infoblox will be supported at this event by Nexum.9:00 – 9:20: 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 technologies9:20 – 9:40 Cloud Client Computing and Virtual Desktops with DellWith a highly mobile-centric workforce that relies heavily on cloud-based applications, organizations of all sizes are rapidly deploying thin client devices/virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI), justfied by security, financial and administrative factors.During this informative session, that builds upon the previous WiFi discussion, you will learn how Dell cloud client computing solutions can protect vital content, support a vast array of clients, plus efficiently manage desktops and remote offices for your entire workforce. Only Dell offers a comprehensive, end-to-end virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) solution that will transform your digital workspace, enable BYOD, simplify endpoint management, and securely deliver any application, to any user, on any device.9:40 – 10:00: Smart Wireless for the Smart Device Era with Mist SystemsWi-Fi isn’t new. But how we use wireless has evolved substantially in recent years thanks to new smart devices, new applications, new wireless technologies – and new user expectations. As Wi-Fi has become more prevalent, it has also become more business-critical.This makes it essential to simplify Wi-Fi operations and ensure a consistent and reliable Wi-Fi experience across all users. At the same time, Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) has emerged as a nice complement to Wi-Fi, delivering high value indoor location-based services. With BLE, there is an untapped opportunity to better engage with employees and customers. The key questions then is "How do you build a modern wireless network designed to address the above?"In this interactive session, Dan Kennison of Mist will discuss this topic in more detail, covering how to:- Design, implement, and operate a modern wireless network that takes advantage of both Wi-Fi and BLE- Leverage machine learning and cloud technologies to minimize wireless OPEX through automation- Use proactive insight and predictive recommendation to ensure a great experience for all Wi-Fi users- Eliminate physical beacons and site surveys with enterprise-grade BLE- Explore real use cases for indoor location services like wayfinding, proximity messaging, and asset tracking 10:00 – 10:40: Coffee Break, Peer Networking, Product Exhibits and Demonstrations Open10:40 – 11:20: VMware Cloud and NSX on Amazon Web Services: Technical OverviewVMware, the leader in private cloud, and Amazon Web Services ("AWS"), the leader in public cloud, are partnering to provide a new VMware vSphere-based cloud service running on AWS. This service will make it easier to run any application, using a common set of familiar software and tools, in a consistent hybrid cloud environment. VMware Cloud on AWS will be powered by VMware vSphere, VMware Virtual SAN and NSX. NSX will be a key component of the offering and will enable a full hybrid solution with consistent networking and security between on-prem and VMware Cloud on AWS workloads.Matt Just,a senior systems engineer with expertise in security and compliance, will be the featured speaker.11:20 – 12:00: Google Cloud PlatformThe Google Cloud Platform enables organizations of all sizes to build, test and deploy applications on Google’s highly-scalable and reliable infrastructure, choosing from computing, storage and/or application services for your web, mobile and/or backend solutions.
