Thursday 31st October 11am
Presenter: Andrew Dreier
Product Focus: SD-WAN and XG Firewall

SD-WAN (or Software Defined Networking in a Wide Area Network) is currently on everyone’s lips. But what exactly it is, is often not clear – the term is sometimes used quite differently.

Essentially, SD-WAN is mostly about achieving one or more of the following goals:

• Reduce the cost of connectivity
• Business Continuity
• Simple VPN connection of field offices
• Bandwidth management for critical applications

Learn all about the current topic SD-WAN in our webinar. You have the opportunity to ask questions live in the chat.

Three Lies You’ve Heard About Threat Hunting (And One Thing That’s True)
Tuesday 19th November 11am
Presenter: Mat Gangwer

The term “Threat Hunting” doesn’t deserve to be placed on the security buzzword bingo board alongside terms like “artificial intelligence,” “real time,” and “next-gen,” to name a few. Unfortunately, its meaning has been co-opted and corrupted by marketers, making it difficult for those looking to add Threat Hunting capabilities to their security program to really understand what they should be looking for.

In this session, Mat Gangwer, Director of Managed Threat Response, breaks down the three biggest lies being told to sell Threat Hunting as a service. Featuring real-world examples of what really goes into a Threat Hunt, this session will set the record straight and prove that—despite the marketing hype—the concepts, process, and strategies associated with Threat Hunting are critical to any successful security program.



Protecting Your Network from Encrypted Threats
Tuesday 26th November 11am
Presenter: Chris McCormick

Encryption of network traffic is rapidly approaching 100% creating an enormous blind spot in your network security that hackers and malware authors are already starting to exploit. And with most Firewall solutions unable to adequately handle this challenge, many organizations are left powerless to do anything about it -leaving them vulnerable to attack.

In this session, we will look at the challenges with ever increasing network traffic encryption and what you should be looking for in your next Firewall to protect your network from this growing threat vector.
