WhiteHat Security Appoints ConZebra as Exclusive APAC Strategic Partner

Kuala Lumpur, Nov 28, 2012 - (ACN Newswire) - CONdition Zebra, inc. (aka "CONZebra"), has been officially appointed by U.S.-based WhiteHat Security, the recognized leading web security company, as the company's exclusive strategic partner throughout key Asia Pacific regions, and has been classified as a "Preferred Partner" for the region.

"We couldn't be more thrilled to have a partner like WhiteHat Security," said CONZebra President and COO, Drew Williams. "CONZebra looks at our relationship with WhiteHat as a very strategic advantage in the fast-growing Asia Pacific sector, as we combine the industry's highest rated web app security solution with our own security risk and critical infrastructure solutions and services."

WhiteHat Security, which offers a real-world perspective on website risk management through real-time, comprehensive website vulnerability scanning, implements what Gartner Group considers to be "an early pioneer in dynamic application security testing solution, with a strong reputation and momentum for its testing-as-a-service model."

"Whether we like it or not," said WhiteHat's founder and CTO, Jeremiah Grossman, "There are some unsavory people out there who will try to hack into our website(s). History and headlines prove that no business, school, government, or personal blog is off limits and out of harms way. And since the vast majority of websites are riddled with exploitable vulnerabilities, the odds of a bad guy finding a way to break in is in their favor - increasingly so with each passing day."

With a Gartner-endorsed backing, and currently thousands of websites currently under the monitoring and assessment care of the WhiteHat/CONZebra solution, Williams believes the time is essential to enter the Asian sector. "Asia, and Southeast Asia, and the greater APAC region including Australia, are powerful influences in cross-industry sectors of technology, communications, environment and essential commodities," he said from his Malaysia offices. "The need for compliance-related solutions to fortify a strong, safe web presence, without fear of creating greater security risks to organizations has been just a matter of focus, time and resources. Now we have a solution for the region."

During its initial launch period, which is expected to last through March 2013, CONZebra and WhiteHat are offering no-obligation sector-specific, real-time security assessments to as many organizations as possible. "This is an essential offering to show organizations where they are with respect to their own industries and how they are doing from a risk management perspective," said CONZebra's Chairman and MD, Wilson Wong.

Condition Zebra (aka "CONZebra"), is headquartered in the United States (Utah), with its APAC headquarters located outside Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, and additional offices being opened in Australia, Taiwan and Thailand. CONZebra's Wong adds, "Our strategies of combining the power of a proven cloud-based web solution like WhiteHat Sentinel, with our local team of experts in GRC and critical infrastructure will serve Southeast Asia, as policy mandates and infrastructure concerns become greater issues to address."

WhiteHat was founded by Grossman, former Yahoo! Information security officer, in 2001, with what the Silicon Valley-based company claims to be a "radically better application security platform for identifying, assessing and protecting all applications (even ones you didn't know existed), whether it's 100, 1,000 or 10,000 of the most complex Web and mobile apps in the most heavily regulated industries."

With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable. Far from it. There are at least six major pain points that companies experience when they try to deploy and run Kubernetes in their complex environments. In this presentation, the speaker will detail these pain points and explain how cloud can address them.
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-centric compute for the most data-intensive applications. Hyperconverged systems already in place can be revitalized with vendor-agnostic, PCIe-deployed, disaggregated approach to composable, maximizing the value of previous investments.
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed how this same philosophy can be applied to highly scaled applications, and can dramatically increase your resilience to failure.
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by sharing information within the building and with outside city infrastructure via real time shared cloud capabilities.
