Dr. Malcolm Murphy

In a career spanning more than 20 years, Malcolm Murphy has witnessed first-hand the evolution of the Internet from academic collaboration tool to the ubiquitous utility we take for granted today.  He started his career building network infrastructure for one of the UK’s largest ISPs, before subsequently spending the majority of his career working for a number of networking technology companies.

Malcolm also developed a proof-of-concept mechanism for using DNS as a covert communications channel.  If there ever was a good reason for doing this, he can’t remember what it is.  But he freely admits that his proof of concept was nowhere near as sophisticated or effective as the techniques that are being employed today to subvert and exploit DNS.

In his current role as Technology Director for Western Europe at Infoblox, Malcolm leads a team of consultants working with Enterprises and Service Providers to help improve the security and robustness of their cloud, network and datacentre operations.

    Leveraging Context Aware Security from the Core

    Networks are undergoing a transformation. There are new paradigm shifts like cloud and SDN, new trends like IoT, and more connected devices than ever before. Managing and securing today’s IT infrastructure and data is getting harder as networks evolve and the attack surface increases. There are security products galore, but what’s missing are integrated solutions that see the big picture, provide context, fill critical security gaps and work in unison to contain threats.

    Don’t miss this chance to learn how you can leverage security solutions that use actionable network intelligence and context to improve your security posture.
