DDI (DNS-DHCP-IPAM) is a cornerstone networking technology and plays a mission-critical role in accessing applications and services. It is more prominent today than ever thanks to multi-cloud and multi-device proliferation, as well as the ever-evolving security threats that conventional network security offerings find hard to combat. However, many organizations may not be utilizing DDI as efficiently as they could. Initiatives like hybrid cloud, SDN, NFV, IPv6, mobility, and IoT can be greatly enhanced by the visibility, automation and “single source of IP truth” that integrated DDI solutions bring.

In this session, we’ll cover:
– DDI as the key for scalable and stable network infrastructure
– The traits of cost effective DDI, how it supports business continuity, and how it can better secure your network
– Use cases- IoT initiatives, consolidated network architecture, homegrown solutions.

Any and every one is a target for nation-state grade cyber attacks, especially during a global crisis. During times of crisis there is a shift in focus which allows cyber-attacks to grow and intensify, and a large portion of them are nation-state grade. The private sector, all verticals and industries, have always been a target for these, and the pandemic has only worsened it.

These highly advanced mechanisms of cyber assault are continuously evolving and readily available for sale on the darknet, enabling hackers and new players looking for alternative income due to COVID19 to become extremely powerful attackers. The question arises – How can organizations protect themselves in today’s crisis cyber reality? And what happens the day after? Fortunately, there are answers and solutions.

In his presentation, Ran Shahor, IDF Brigadier General (Ret.) will discuss the challenges financial organizations face during a time of crisis, the solutions, the holistic approach and the secret sauce needed in order to be protected and stay ahead of the curve.
