Damballa and Bit9 + Carbon Black Collaborate to Deliver Better Security with More Context

Damballa and Bit9 + Carbon Black Collaborate to Deliver Better Security with More Context

  In looking at the solutions available for threat protection (and detection), there are quite a few options out there. Some, like Damballa Failsafe, are network-based, vigilantly watching packets across the network and looking for indications of undesirable activities/behaviors and content.  Others are host-based, like Bit9 + Carbon Black, using an agent on the endpoint, to persistently defend the endpoint as a beachhead against undesired, malicious processes trying to execute. Each has its use cases and strong points, but together they provide a significantly broader perspective and richer context for driving response. While sitting on the network and inspecting packets allows for ...

Thoughts on Splunk .conf 2014

Thoughts on Splunk .conf 2014

This week, Las Vegas hosted some 3500 people at the MGM Grand to mark Splunk .conf14, the annual user gathering for Splunk customers, referred to as “Splunkers”. For those of you not in the tech industry, spelunking, or the act of exploring caves, may come to mind. The theme of the conference was not cave exploration, but data exploration; however, the analogy of cave exploration actually aligns very well. “Splunkers” are diving into their data, delving deep into places that many have never explored before. Each of them finding new and cool ways to use the data that they have ...

Network Management: Still a ‘Must-Have’ for Enterprise IT

Network Management: Still a ‘Must-Have’ for Enterprise IT

It’s sometimes difficult to differentiate between hype and reality when it comes to topics such as cloud, ITaaS, SDN, DevOps, hybrid this and hybrid that. But there are a few certainties in the IT universe and one of them is that IT doesn’t function if all of the pieces can’t talk to one another, and that means the network needs to be rock solid. Some of that is under the control of enterprise IT teams as internal network infrastructure, but some of it isn’t, such as WAN or Internet. Because connectivity is so essential, no one questions the need for ...

On March 27, 1977, two Boeing 747 passenger aircraft collided on the Spanish island of Tenerife, one of the Canary Islands, in the deadliest accident in aviation history. 583 people perished. Like the Titanic, a multitude of causes converged into the disaster. A terrorist bomb at a another airport, an overstretched small regional facility, a...

KaseyaConnect2012_300x190

I spent three great days last week with Kaseya and its user community. The experience was eye-opening in many ways. A bit of background: EMA considers Kaseya a systems management provider, and as such they are usually covered by my colleagues Steve Brasen and Torsten Volk. However, this year for a couple of different reasons...

Okay so networking fabric wars, OpenFlow, and SDN startups are all the buzz in the networking space right now and while it is fun to speculate and debate the topic, it is time to get back to basics. Sure we need to decouple the network plumbing from its current rigid, fixed, physical design, but let’s...

A lot my coverage over the past couple of years has been focused on the increasingly interesting mix of applications that get delivered over enterprise networks and the impact that has on how networks are being planned and operated.

I know what you’re thinking – you just read the title and thought, “Microsoft as a serious player in the mobile space … suuuuure!”  Bear with me, though – this really does make sense. So much industry buzz has been on the consumerization of IT that vendors have lost sight of the criticality of mobile...

Even people outside of the technology sector recognize the Cisco brand. Cisco has a very strong global presence that transcends the technology sector. However as one dives deeper into the network technology sector, especially into the networking infrastructure segment the names of these technology vendors may not transcend much beyond the target user group within...

I was sitting in a plane recently, pulling out my iPad to enjoy one of my colleague’s excellent publications. After clicking the Dropbox icon, I noticed that I forgot to bookmark the actual document, so it did not replicate to the iPad. This rather annoying experience made me think about how far we have come...
