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."

The Kubernetes vision is to democratize the building of distributed systems. As adoption of Kubernetes increases, the project is growing in popularity; it currently has more than 1,500 contributors who have made 62,000+ commits. Kubernetes acts as a cloud orchestration layer, reducing barriers to cloud adoption and eliminating vendor lock-in for enterprises wanting to use cloud service providers. Organizations can develop and run applications on any public cloud, such as Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, Red Hat OpenShift and Google Cloud Platform.
Because Linkerd is a transparent proxy that runs alongside your application, there are no code changes required. It even comes with Prometheus to store the metrics for you and pre-built Grafana dashboards to show exactly what is important for your services - success rate, latency, and throughput. In this session, we'll explain what Linkerd provides for you, demo the installation of Linkerd on Kubernetes and debug a real world problem. We will also dig into what functionality you can build on top of the tools provided by Linkerd such as alerting and autoscaling.
With container technologies widely recognized as the cloud-era standard for workload scaling and application mobility, organizations are increasingly seeking to support container-based workflows. In particular, the desire to containerize a diverse spectrum of enterprise applications has highlighted the need for reliable, container-friendly, persistent storage. However, to effectively complement today's cloud-centric container orchestration platforms, persistent storage solutions must blend reliability and scalability with a simple, cloud-native user experience. The introduction of Elastifile's CSI driver addresses these needs by augmenting containerized workflows with highly-available, scalable NFS file storage delivered via Elastifile Cloud File System...and with no complex, manual storage provisioning required.
Applications with high availability requirements must be deployed to multiple clusters to ensure reliability. Historically, this has been done by pulling nodes from other availability zones into the same cluster. However, if the cluster failed, the application would still become unavailable. Rancher’s support for multi-cluster applications is a significant step forward, solving this problem by allowing users to select the application and the target clusters, providing cluster specific data. Rancher then initiates deployment to those clusters.
Implementation of Container Storage Interface (CSI) for Kubernetes delivers persistent storage for compute running in Kubernetes-managed containers. This future-proofs Kubernetes+Storage deployments. Unlike the Kubernetes Flexvol-based volume plugin, storage is no longer tightly coupled or dependent on Kubernetes releases. This creates greater stability because the storage interface is decoupled entirely from critical Kubernetes components allowing separation of privileges as CSI components do not need full privileges of Kubernetes components. With the implementation of Container Storage Interface (CSI), persistent data layer for Kubernetes and other Container Orchestration (CO) tools, such as Mesos and Docker Swarm are now future-proofed.
