Lumension Security(TM) Announces Availability of Podcast About Evolving Threats to Proprietary Government Information and Best Practices for Data Protection

Vice President of Federal Solutions Outlines Emerging Security Challenges, Essential Components to a Sound Data Protection Strat

SCOTTSDALE, AZ -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 04/29/08 -- Lumension Security(TM), Inc., a leading global security management company formed by the combination of PatchLink® Corporation and SecureWave® S.A., today announced the availability of a podcast titled, "Protecting Agency Data from Loss or Theft." The podcast features a discussion with Steve Antone, Lumension's vice president of federal solutions, about evolving threats to sensitive information, best practices for implementing an effective data security strategy and how Lumension's best-of-breed endpoint security solutions help government agencies protect information. The podcast is available online at: http://www.lumension.com/request_form.jsp?id=135140&metadataId=135140.

"Thanks to an increasing number of telecommuters and advancements in removable storage media, today's network perimeters within government agencies and commercial organizations continue to dissipate. In addition, most high-profile security incidents involve some sort of insider improprietary, from accidental loss of information to malicious activity," said Antone. "As a result, IT administrators face new security challenges and the need for creating sound data protection strategies is further exacerbated. By setting over-arching policies for acceptable device use, deploying additional layers of security to understand the content's sensitivity and implementing strong encryption, organizations can safeguard against the loss or theft of proprietary information."

Lumension Security's Sanctuary Device Control is the industry's most complete solution for addressing the security challenges posed by the use of removable storage media. Sanctuary enables organizations to create a whitelist of allowed devices, denying all others by default and protecting against data leakage, introduction of malware and other threats. Sanctuary's ability to granularly define permissions and its comprehensive logging capabilities allow administrators to enforce acceptable device-use policies and gain visibility into who is accessing what data and where it is being moved.

"Lumension's Sanctuary has long been the industry's leading device control solution, but we are always seeking ways to improve our offerings to meet evolving data security threats and compliance requirements. As a result, we have expanded Sanctuary beyond its core capabilities to help government agencies and other organizations ensure that their data is secure," said Antone. "Lumension has formed several key partnerships in this area, including with PGP to bolster the encryption on the information itself.

"In addition, we have partnered with Websense to inspect content to determine its sensitivity level. By integrating the best-of-breed functionality from PGP and Websense into Sanctuary, Lumension offers a comprehensive, multi-layered solution for complete data protection."

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm. In their Day 3 Keynote at 20th Cloud Expo, Chris Brown, a Solutions Marketing Manager at Nutanix, and Mark Lavi, a Nutanix DevOps Solution Architect, explored the ways that Nutanix technologies empower teams to react faster than ever before and connect teams in ways that were either too complex or simply impossible with traditional infrastructures.
In his keynote at 18th Cloud Expo, Andrew Keys, Co-Founder of ConsenSys Enterprise, provided an overview of the evolution of the Internet and the Database and the future of their combination – the Blockchain. Andrew Keys is Co-Founder of ConsenSys Enterprise. He comes to ConsenSys Enterprise with capital markets, technology and entrepreneurial experience. Previously, he worked for UBS investment bank in equities analysis. Later, he was responsible for the creation and distribution of life settlement products to hedge funds and investment banks. After, he co-founded a revenue cycle management company where he learned about Bitcoin and eventually Ethereum.
"At the keynote this morning we spoke about the value proposition of Nutanix, of having a DevOps culture and a mindset, and the business outcomes of achieving agility and scale, which everybody here is trying to accomplish," noted Mark Lavi, DevOps Solution Architect at Nutanix, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
