Next Generation DDoS Mitigation: Leveraging Hybrid On-Premise and Cloud Solutions

As distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks become increasingly large and complex, most buyers looking to deploy DDoS mitigation begin their investigation by answering one simple question: Do I want to deploy DDoS mitigation products in my infrastructure or instead buy a hosted service? There are pros and cons to both approaches, and a new wave of offerings called hybrid DDoS mitigation solutions strive to combine the best aspects of on-premise and hosted mitigation to maximize security and uptime and minimize cost. This webinar discusses what hybrid DDoS mitigation solutions look like and how they work.

Who Should Attend: Individuals responsible for security solutions at large enterprises, SMBs, hosting service providers, data center operators and co-location providers, financial analysts and the media.

Key Topics for Discussion:

  • What types of DDoS attacks can be mitigated on premise, and when should you look to the cloud for protection?
  • How can you manage a hybrid on-premise/cloud solution?
  • What kinds of hybrid solutions are available today?
  • Answers to audience questions during live Q&A

Optimize SSL Certificate Management with Symantec and A10 Networks

Managing a secure SSL environment is getting complex. Recent industry standards and security vulnerabilities required IT to migrate from SHA-1 to SHA-2 hash algorithm, find alternatives for certificates with non-fully-qualified domain (FQDN) names and replace certificates impacted by the Heartbleed vulnerability. In addition, initiatives like Google’s "HTTPS everywhere" or always-on SSL on Google search may increase the deployment of SSL certificates in an organization. All these changes add to the challenges of managing SSL certificates. 

In the meantime, IT managers have to continue to provide optimal system performance to meet their users’ needs while staying within their budget. 

Attend this exclusive webinar to:

  • Discover recent changes and challenges with SSL certificate management
  • Learn how you can minimize time and resources in monitoring and managing SSL certificates with Symantec Certificate Intelligence Center (CIC)
  • Find out how you can optimize the performance of SSL encryption and decryption with the A10 Thunder Application Delivery Controller (ADC) from A10 Networks

Planning for Perfect Forward Secrecy, Web Attack Protection, and DDoS Mitigation

The Edward Snowden revelations have turned Internet security on its head. Now, organizations of all sizes are clamoring to prove they protect end users by implementing the most stringent encryption available: elliptic curve cryptography (ECC). Besides bolstering encryption standards, organizations must contend with other growing threats, like Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) and web application attacks.

Attend this webinar to learn:

  • Why elliptic curve ciphers improve security
  • Best practices for implementing ECC with ECDHE cipher suites without killing performance
  • Next generation DDoS attacks and mitigation strategies
  • Why attackers have focused their attention on Content Management Systems (CMS) and how you can shield your website from attack

Join Jim Metzler, author and authority on network technology, and Kasey Cross, security evangelist at A10 Networks, to learn the steps you need to take to protect your applications and your network.

Programmable L4-L7 Application Networking Services - must have for Cloud IaaS

Cloud IaaS delivers vastly greater business agility, service provisioning times, and economics. Cloud IaaS requires that underlying infrastructure be automated and scalable to build an on-demand delivery model providing dynamic and consistent services in a shared, multi-tenant environment. In order to do so, it is critically important that a seamless integration of application networking services with other data center infrastructure is needed to deliver dynamic L4-7 services and automated policy enforcement for service- level agreements (SLAs) and compliance in a shared, multi-tenant environment. 

In this session you will learn how Integration with centralized orchestration systems with flexible RESTful APIs ensure accurate and unified configuration of network application services reducing manual configuration tasks and speeding time to implementation.

Putting a Stop to Hidden Threats in SSL Traffic

Concerns about internet security and privacy in the wake of continued breaches and data thefts like the recent Sony attack, combined with the revelations of wide-scale spying by the NSA in the Snowden disclosures, has caused a massive spike in the volume of encrypted internet traffic. While encrypting traffic generally improves security posture, it also provides an opportunity for attackers to hide threats inside the SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) protocol, because most SSL traffic passes through security controls unchecked. This webinar looks at how attackers use SSL to disguise assaults and what enterprise security teams can do to thwart these threats.

Who Should Attend: Security professionals at small, medium and large enterprises, financial analysts, and the media.

Key Topics for Discussion:

  • What's causing the massive growth in encrypted traffic
  • Types of attacks hidden in SSL, and the damage they do
  • Solutions for inspecting SSL traffic and uncovering hidden threats
  • Real deployment cases
  • Answers to audience questions during live Q&A
