June 12th:  “The Case for Wire Data” – John Smith, ExtraHop Networks

At a time when more money than ever is being spent on Information Security, the number of high profile and business impacting breaches is higher than ever.  While traditional security tools have served us well in the past, the time has come to call into question whether or not they are the best fit for today’s threat landscape.

In this talk we will discuss the need to augment traditional tools with solutions that have the shutter speed to observe today’s breaches.  We will also introduce the term “Intelligence Yield” and its effect on our ability to handle incidents.  Then finally, we will make the case for wire data as an augmentation and even replacement for much more expensive and lower-yield solutions and demonstrate how wire data can make existing investments better.

John Smith is a Solutions Architect at ExtraHop and author of the wiredata.net blog. He is a Citrix Technology Professional and 16-year IT veteran specializing in application delivery, event correlation, security, web applications, and application virtualization.
