Organizations must protect the rapidly growing volume of unstructured and semi structured data—documents, spreadsheets, presentations, media files and other business data - that can be stored in file servers, NAS devices, SharePoint, virtual data centers, cloud-based storage platforms, etc. This is taking ediscovery and data loss prevention (DLP) to the next level. Attendees will learn about solutions to this important issue from Varonis, the foremost innovator and provider of access, governance, and retention solutions for human-generated data, the fastest-growing and most sensitive class of digital information. Based on patented technology and a highly accurate analytics engine, Varonis solutions give organizations total visibility and control over their data, ensuring that only the right users have access to the right data at all times from all devices, all use is monitored, and abuse is flagged. Varonis makes digital collaboration secure, effortless and efficient so that people can create and share content easily, and organizations can extract more value from their content while being confident that it is protected and managed efficiently. 9:05 - 9:25: Next Generation Firewall with Dell SonicWALL Dell SonicWALL Next-Generation Firewalls (NGFW) deliver superior intrusion prevention, malware protection, application intelligence and control, real-time traffic visualization and inspection for SSL encrypted sessions at the gateway by tightly integrating a patented Reassembly-Free Deep Packet Inspection engine with multi-core hardware.

Dell NGFW provide a comprehensive layer of defense by combining gateway content filtering, anti-spam, anti-virus, anti-spyware, intrusion prevention, and regain visibility into the network through application intelligence and visualization. 9:25 - 9:45: Anti-Virus, Malware Detection, Virtual/Cloud Security with Kaspersky Kaspersky is the world’s largest privately held, and among the top four, security vendors, operating in 200 countries and protecting 300 million users. Its mission is to provide the world's most effective, responsive and efficient protection against cyber-threats: those from malware, spam, hackers, DDoS attacks, sophisticated cyber-espionage tools, and cyber-weapons that target organization's critical IT infrastructure with potentially catastrophic consequences. Because malware is becoming increasingly sophisticated, traditional defenses are no longer sufficient to ensure adequate protection. In addition to award-winning anti-malware. Kaspersky will discuss vulnerability scanning and patch management technologies that eradicate vulnerabilities within both operating systems and application software. Flexible encryption functionality will be covered, that protects confidential data on a laptop and/or removable storage device that is lost or stolen. Although shared storage offers many advantages, the presence of one infected file can spread malware across the corporate network. Kaspersky's anti-malware protection for file servers helps your business to benefit from shared storage, without compromising on security. Many traditional, agent-based anti-malware products are not well suited to virtualized environments, e.g. they require antivirus and signature database installed on every virtual machine, which partly defeats the object of virtualization. Kaspersky Security for Virtualization delivers award-winning anti-malware protection for virtualized servers, desktops and data centers. An agentless anti-malware solution is a highly efficient way to protect your virtualized infrastructure, with greater performance and less impact on virtualization density. It is easy to deploy and includes advanced management features to simplify security management across both physical and virtual computing assets. 9:45 - 10:05: BYOD Bring Your Own Device, High-Speed Wireless, 802.11n/ac Migration with Xirrus During the last year, Apple sold 150 million iPhones and 70 million iPads, while Google and its partners sold over 200 million Android-powered smartphones. These devices are often employee-owned and are rapidly making their way to the workplace - the Bring-your-own-Device (BYOD) revolution - creating a new set of security and management challenges for IT departments. Experts will share best practices on supporting tablet, laptop, smartphone and other devices on your network, which often run different operating systems and rely upon different security protocols. For instance, how can sensitive corporate data be segmented/separated/encrypted from personal information when using the same device? How can you integrate a Mobile Device Management (MDM) solution with existing end point/anti-virus security products? Should you create specialized apps for your employees and/or customers, or do smartphone browsers have sufficient functionality? Every tablet and smartphone shares a common feature - they can only connect to the Internet via wireless, which greatly increases the importance of a comprehensive wi-fi infrastructure and strategy. With unlicensed wireless device growth measured in the billions of units, combined with a growing role for machine-to-machine mobile communications (the "Internet of Things") and more wireless-based mission-critical applications, it is essential that IT professionals eliminate rf interference, ensure end user wi-fi performance and understand the next generation of standards including 802.11n and 802.11ac, which enables multi-station WLAN throughput of 1 gigabits per second. Network and security personnel will learn how to combine existing a/b/g access points with higher-speed solutions now available, plus create an integrated Wi-Fi/cellular wireless strategy that maximizes mobile worker productivity, in a secure and cost-effective manner. 10:05 - 10:25: Delivering Service, Applications, and Data to Users on Any Device: Citrix Strategies and Best Practices for dealing with remote users, Virtual Desktops, Windows Upgrades, and mobility needs Citrix will discuss how its FlexCast and XenMobile architecture can help facilitate the smooth migration from XP, while supporting BYOD, VDI and Mobility initiatives. 10:25 - 10:45 Flash Primary Storage with Pure Flash storage has revolutionized everything from smart phones and mobile computers, to web searches and social media.

Break, Product Demonstrations, Exhibit Area Open, Peer Networking 11:15 - 11:35: Software Defined Cloud Networking from Arista and Integration Partners Arista has defined a number of guiding principles for integration with Software Defined Networking (SDN) technologies, including controllers, hypervisors, cloud orchestration middleware, and customized flow-based forwarding agents. These guiding principles leverage proven, scalable, and standards-based control and data plane switching technologies from Arista. Emerging SDN technologies complement data center switches by automating network policies and provisioning within a broader integrated cloud infrastructure ecosystem. Arista defines the combination of SDN technologies and the Arista Extensible Operating System (Arista EOS®) as Software Defined Cloud Networking (SDCN). The resulting benefits of Arista’s SDCN approach include: network applications and open, scalable standards integration with a wide variety of cloud provisioning and orchestration tools; seamless mobility and visibility of multi-tenant virtual machines via Arista’s OpenWorkload technologies; and real-time Network Telemetry data for best of breed coupling with cloud operations management tools. 11:35 - 11:55: Next-Generatio Data Center Infrastruture and Virtual Computing Platforms with Nutanix Nutanix delivers web-scale IT infrastructure to medium and large enterprises with its software-driven Virtual Computing Platform, natively converging compute and storage into a single solution to drive unprecedented simplicity in the datacenter. Customers can start with a few servers and scale to thousands, with predictable performance and economics. With a patented elastic data fabric and consumer-grade management, Nutanix is the blueprint for application-optimized and policy-driven infrastructure. 11:55 - 12:35: VMware: Private/Public Hybrid Cloud and Software Defined Data Center VMware will first discuss their vCloud® Hybrid Service™ (vCHS), an exciting hybrid cloud offering. vCHS is a VMware owned and operated external cloud offering that uses the same software stack as our customers and thus provides unmatched operational efficiencies that reduce operational complexity, risk and TCO. In essence, it is infrastructure as a service (IaaS) or capacity on demand recognized in an OpEx model that will enable firms to easily and confidently execute your Hybrid Cloud strategy. Along with inherent data center compatibility and agility benefits, vCloud Hybrid Service offers: - Seamless networking, burstable traffic and security (use your same IP and MAC addresses, FW, LB, NAT and VXLAN). - Common management and orchestration platform (automation and provisioning) that spans on-premise and off-premise. - No changes to new or legacy applications - move workloads to and from our external cloud without having to make any changes to the VM, vApp, network configurations or security policies. - VMware world class support Enterprises worldwide have used VMware vSphere® to significantly improve IT efficiency and performance, yet the mobile cloud era presents new challenges. To meet this challenge, IT organizations need to virtualize the rest of the data center so all infrastructure services become as inexpensive and easy to provision and manage as virtual machines. The answer is the software-defined data center (SDDC): the ideal architecture for private, public, and hybrid clouds. Pioneered by VMware and recognized by the industry and analysts alike, SDDC extends the virtualization concepts you know— abstraction, pooling and automation — to all data center resources and services. Components of the SDDC can be implemented together, or in phases: - Compute virtualization, network virtualization and software-defined storage deliver abstraction, pooling and automation of the compute, network, and storage infrastructure services. - Automated management delivers a framework for policy-based management of data center application and services. In a software-defined data center, policy-driven automation enables provisioning and ongoing management of logical compute, storage and network services. The result is unprecedented IT agility and efficiency, with flexibility to support today and tomorrow’s hardware and applications. Benefits include: - Virtualization economics across your data center : Software-defined data center technology helps attain new levels of infrastructure utilization and staff productivity, substantially reducing both capital expenditures and operating costs. - Applications at business speed : Enabling deployment of applications in minutes or even seconds with policy-driven provisioning that dynamically matches resources to continually changing workloads and business demands. - Business-aware IT control : Driving right availability, security and compliance for every application via automated business continuity, policy-based governance and virtualization-aware security and compliance. - Your data center on your terms : The software-defined data center can be leveraged as a private, hybrid or public cloud—in each case, infrastructure is fully abstracted from applications so they can run on multiple hardware stacks, hypervisors and clouds.
