How to Painlessly Discover What You Don’t Know – Before It Bites You Where It Hurts

The statistics on system management are alarming – 30% of all break-ins come through systems people have lost track of, 90% of all organizations have failures of services they aren’t monitoring, 80% of all organizations are unable to keep their systems in compliance after getting them there initially, and 30% admit that they rarely start monitoring until after they have a problem, 30% of all systems are doing nothing useful, and admins of larger sites often don’t know the inter-dependencies between systems, services, and switches.

The Assimilation System Management Suite helps you deal with these problems by creating a detailed graph database and driving audits, monitoring, and security policies from it in a way that scales like nothing else, and providing detailed data of what changed and what happened, and each piece relates to the other to help determine the root cause of an outage. This talk will give a demo, and will cover the usage, architecture, and future of the Assimilation project.

This talk is aimed at moderately experienced to advanced system engineers, administrators, IT architects, security professionals, and IT managers. Come learn how you can use the Assimilation Project to get X-ray vision into your infrastructure with near-zero configuration. If you are a security expert, you have the opportunity to contribute to and benefit from our set of best practice security rules.
