WHAT: "Top 5 Cyber Security Challenges for 2013" WHEN: Thursday, January 24, 11:00 a.m. ET / 8:00 a.m. PT REGISTER: In order to address evolving risks and challenges, organizations must adopt next-generation security solutions that provide much greater network visibility and threat intelligence than conventional tools. By leveraging NetFlow, IPFIX and other types of flow data inherent in existing infrastructure, behavioral-based monitoring tools like Lancope's StealthWatch® System can provide the in-depth network insight and security context needed to fend off advanced threats.

"We are not going to catch today's sophisticated attacks with tools that can only detect known malware and exploits that target known vulnerabilities," added Cross. "We need to focus on the behavior of software, systems and actors on the network to identify suspicious activities that could be evidence of an attack." Webinar participants will learn how to address: -- State-sponsored espionage and sabotage of computer networks -- Monster DDoS attacks -- The loss of visibility and control created by IT consumerization and the cloud -- The password debacle -- Insider threats For further details on Lancope's StealthWatch System, go to:

Reflections from an Interop Veteran and Alum

When I returned to the Fiber Mountain™ offices in Connecticut after exhibiting at Interop Las Vegas 2015, I couldn’t help but think about how much the event has evolved through the years. I have been attending this seminal IT and networking conference since its inception in 1986 when it was called the TCP/IP Vendor Workshop, focused on interoperability of various TCP/IP program stacks.

What Fiber Mountain's Interop Recognition Means for Our Industry

When Fiber Mountain™ began its journey with a launch at Interop New York last fall, we certainly believed that we had a solution that would make a significant impact in the data center space.

What On-Board Optics Means for Density and Flexibility

This past week I read an article in Lightwave Magazine and another in Network World about the formation of the Consortium for On-board Optics (COBO), a group that seeks to create specifications and increase the faceplate density of data center switches and adapters.

Scaling Hyperscale in an Age of Exponential Growth and Virtualization

Over the past several years server, network, storage and application virtualization has revolutionized the way hyperscale data centers are built by consolidating workloads. The trend has simplified network architecture significantly and resulted in huge cost savings as well.
