Title: Data Center 2.0: Redefining Security for Global Business Operations
Date: Thursday, June 27, 2013
Time: 2 pm Eastern/ 11 am Pacific (Duration 60 minutes, including time for Q&A)
Register: Sign up for the webinar.

Beyond physical security, older data centers are still ill-equipped to handle a cyber-attack on critical power and cooling infrastructure. In order to deliver an always-on, on-demand service level -enterprises, governments, and service providers need to take a closer look at the security profile of their data center.

This webinar will cover several important security topics which revolve around the modern data center. As new workloads are deployed, administrators will have to think “outside of the data center” to ensure maximum physical and logical security. Topics of discussion include:

  • The security challenges facing the “Data Center 1.0” infrastructure
  • The impact of technology trends on business and government – and how it affects you.
  • The cyber-threat evolution in recent years
  • How an APT (Advanced Persistent Threat) steals secrets and disrupts operations
  • An integrated approach to physical and logical security.
  • Deploying intelligent security solutions from the bottom up.

This one-hour webinar will examine the more detailed aspects, such advanced persistent threats (APT), how hacking has become a commodity, current trends and growth within the data center, as well as how to create security on both a logical and physical layer.

Following the presentation, there will be a Q&A session with your peers, Bill Kleyman, Robert Butler from IO. Sign up today and you will receive further instructions via e-mail about the webinar. We invite you to join the conversation.
