The workshop will educate attendees on how these tools can help manage unwanted network traffic and teach them the skills needed to properly leverage XDP as a defense mechanism to protect their mission-critical services and infrastructure.

Renee Orser, vice president of engineering at NS1, will speak about the challenges enterprises face in delivering a software solution via SaaS and on-premise on Wednesday, June 12, at 3:50 p.m. PT. A recent IDG Ones to Watch honoree, Orser will share NS1’s experience delivering its leading DNS suite across deployment models and the significant architectural, cultural and organizational design challenges teams must overcome to do so.

A third session, led by Shannon Weyrick, vice president of architecture, and Clare Gollnick, director of data science, of NS1, will focus on traffic analysis strategies for edge networks on Wednesday, June 12, at 4:45 p.m. PT. Moving beyond application-level metrics, the speakers will touch on methods for traffic collection and analysis, and how to discern the valuable information from the uninteresting noise.
