Juniper JATP Explainer Video

Every effective enterprise security architecture begins with a strong first line of defense. Firewalls, secure web gateways, intrusion prevention systems – even endpoint security products. They all do a good job preventing most external cyber attacks before they have a chance to start. But what about advanced, unknown threats that can bypass your first line of defense and gain access to your internal network resources and sensitive data? How do you even know if those threats are there?  How can you find threats that have never been seen before? And most important, how can you close this security gap before your business is compromised?   Many organizations rely on a SIEM – a Security Information and Event Management platform – to gain visibility into potentially malicious activity inside the network.  Unfortunately, the events, logs, and alerts generated by a SIEM only provide visibility into symptoms of an advanced threat, rather that detecting the threat itself.  Sifting through the data to identify the underlying root cause can require hours of manual effort. But what if your internal network was protected by a second layer of automated, advanced threat defense? A software fabric distributed across your network, specifically designed to detect the advanced threats that other security devices miss. Introducing the Advanced Threat Prevention solution   from Juniper   Known as JATP, this innovative solution combines an appliance-based detection and analytics engine, along with distributed virtual collectors that ingest web, email, and lateral spread traffic running north, south, east, and west throughout your network.   Working together as an integrated security fabric, theSmartCore analytics engine within the JATP appliance. SmartCore applies advanced, multi-stage detection and analysis technologies to identify advanced, previously unknown threats early in the cyber kill chain – often in as little as 15 seconds.   But its security […]

Cequence Explainer

Here’s a shocking fact.   Recent research indicates that malicious bot attacks now account for nearly 1/3 of all traffic on the Internet.  Think about that. A security issue that you might not have paid much attention to in the past, is fast becoming the #1 cyber threat facing every organization doing business in our hyper-connected world. These attacks can be planned and executed quickly using credentials, tools, and infrastructure readily available on the dark web. Financially-motivated attack objectives include fraudulent account takeover, application denial of service, API business logic abuse, and much more. If your organization relies on web, mobile, or API applications to facilitate business processes or engage with customers, you should consider yourself a potential attack target. So, what do you do about it?   Legacy bot defense tools have proven to be either obsolete, complex, ineffective, or all of the above. For example, web application firewalls sit in line and must make quick decisions using outdated signatures to detect outdated threats.  That won’t help much.First-generation bot mitigation tools force you to deal with continuous, time-consuming application modifications that involve JavaScript and mobile SDKs.  Large organizations often have hundreds of applications to support, so this is not a trivial task. Even after all that work, your visibility and protection against bot attacks is still limited. Fortunately, there is a better way.   Cequence Security provides advanced bot defense capabilities you won’t find in legacy products. No signatures, no JavaScript, no SDKs, no black box service, no specialized appliances, none of that nonsense.  Instead, we […]

Who The Hell Am I?

An Ancestry Show With A Funny Pedigree   “Who The Hell Am I?” is a straight-up parody of the enormously popular ancestry-type shows, like “Who Do You Think You Are?” In place of celebrities seeking to unlock the mysteries of their ancestors, our show features actors portraying complete unknowns seeking to unlock the mysteries of their ancestors.     We envision our version as both a comedy and a mystery. Each subject’s story will unfold in four episodes. And each will have a cliffhanger moment to hook the audience in and entice them to return. Pilot Episode DescriptionFailed actor and writer Jimmy Marcus discovers that the father he never knew—Marv Tollman—was a renowned self-help guru in the 1970s. A documentary explains that Marv was a failed actor and writer who eventually found success as the writer of the self-help book, “The Failure Fallacy.” From there, he moved to Hollywood where he thrived as the “self-help guru to the stars.” But at the height of his success, Marv disappeared. There was no shortage of rumors about what happened to him and Jimmy is determined to get to the truth. Interviews with Marv’s brother and an ex-girlfriend turn up several clues that set the story in motion.   Episode Two DescriptionArmed with the knowledge that Marv moved to Italy with his Italian girlfriend after flaming out as an actor in Hollywood, Jimmy travels to Rome. There he meets his half-sister who explains how Marv ended up doing odd jobs for his girlfriend’s [...]

Friends of Haiti Documentary

Doing Good Feels Good! NetApp, like many corporations, affords its employees an opportunity to take paid time off to volunteer their services in a charity of their choosing. It’s a great way to do good and, in turn, feel good about making a difference in the world. Recently, I had the pleasure of working with one of their employees on a very moving video project. Dave Botterill, Account Manager in NetApp’s Calgary office, is the founder of Friends of Haiti - Canada, which delivers everything from laptops and cell phones to soccer uniforms and medicine to the impoverished country. It was a 10-day endeavor that took me from Calgary, where I captured Dave packing up 28 bags of equipment that was donated by generous community members, to Jacmel, Haiti, which was devastated during the 2010 earthquake, leaving nearly 70 percent of the homes damaged, mostly in the poorer neighborhoods.   This is a story that practically tells itself. A caring human being looks to make a difference in the world, to help those less fortunate, and, in the process, is rewarded with a sense of purpose along with newfound relationships that have enhanced his already blessed life. The keyword here is “practically.” Telling a good story is more than just showing up with a camera and hitting the record button. It takes years of experience to know how to put together a narrative that could easily spill over into the maudlin category and keep it focused on its simple message—we all [...]

Marv Tollman: Look Back In Failure.

Contribute Now! Help Support Our Crowdsourcing Film Campaign Made in the style of “Spinal Tap” and “Zelig,” the mockumentary “Marv Tollman: Look Back In Failure” follows the story of a little known 1970s self-help guru whose book, “The Failure Fallacy,” was an enormous hit. The Failure Fallacy A popular PBS special followed along with the undivided attention of Hollywood celebrities who were inexorably drawn to his spot-on failure and success theories. Ironically, he achieved the fame and fortune that eluded him when he came to Tinsel Town a decade earlier as an aspiring actor. However, one year after his meteoric rise, Tollman disappeared. No one knows what happened but there were plenty of rumors surrounding his fairy tale existence. Marv's PBS Special 1982 The most sensational was that he wasn’t a self-help guru at all but rather just playing the role of a lifetime. To uncover the truth, Tollman’s son, Jimmy, who was 10 when his father disappeared, has set out to set the record straight by interviewing everyone and anyone with knowledge of the self-proclaimed “self-help failure guru to the stars.” Marv Tollman Film GalleryWhy are we making “Marv Tollman: Look Back in Failure”?Why are we making “Marv Tollman: Look Back in Failure”?

And both have struggled with the notion of failure and success on and off for [...]
