Planning a military operation is a detail-oriented process that is critical to mission success and ensuring the safety of everyone involved. It requires analyzing historical data, assessing multiple risk factors and simulating numerous scenarios. This webinar will explore how geographic data, military symbology, 3D models, virtual reality and simulation can aid in mission planning, while real-time data from the battlefield, drones and weather can be leveraged to update and adjust plans during mission execution.

SIGNAL WEBINAR sponsored by Trusted Systems, Inc.: Filling in the Missing Link in Zero Trust
10/22/2020 - 10/22/2020
Web

The ongoing pandemic lockdown has created an urgent need to enable classified connectivity from homes. The Cybersecurity Community has emphasized a ZERO TRUST architecture applied to cloud-based data. VDI based solutions render trust to the user, but without the verify. That is the missing link. Fortunately, there are safe-based, self-controlled and inconspicuous solutions tailored to in-home use. When coupled with desktop biometrics and remote monitoring, a seamless, compliant package results that puts the verify into teleworking equal to, if not better than at the office.

Recent events have taught us that mission critical infrastructure stability is more important than ever as applications and continuity is only as reliable as the underlying infrastructure. It keeps organizations running, citizens connected, and stakeholders engaged. In uncertain times, you simply cannot afford to have your critical systems go down or lose access to data. The costs of system downtime are not only measured financially, but also in terms of health, safety, and even lives. Join us to learn why SUSE is the right choice to help you achieve Non-Stop IT.
