Imagine the benefits that a VDI environment could realize during a boot storm. All the VMs are based on the same template, and therefore they all have the same set of files during initial boot. Normally, 100 VMs all booting at the same time would require a significant number of HDDs, but with this hyperconverged infrastructure platform, the first VM to boot reads the block off the HDD, which promotes that block into cache. Now the next 99 VMs can all access that same block from cache. That’s a 100:1 IOPS reduction on the IOPS-bound disks.

According to many market research analysts, the global wireless access point (WAP) market is anticipated to continue its upward trajectory and to grow at an impressive compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of approximately 8% through 2020. Many enterprises are utilizing cloudcomputing technology for cost-cutting purposes, eliminating investments required for storage hardware and other physical infrastructures. With significant growth expected in Internet usage, particularly bandwidth consuming video traffic, WAP vendors need to enable their customers to monitor and improve device performance, improve end user experience, and enhance security. These customers include general enterprises that offer Internet access to patrons like airports, hotels, retail / shopping centers and so on. These external Internet access providers can differentiate themselves by offering optimum service through advanced network analytics, traffic shaping, application control, security capabilities and more.
Today all businesses battle with unprecedented competitive pressures. In order to succeed—or even survive—
they must rapidly adapt to constantly changing environments, in every industry and sector. What does this
mean for IT leaders? Transformation, on all fronts.
The very factors driving digital transformation in businesses are also pressuring IT organizations to transform.
Customer expectations have increased. Companies live and die by the applications they provide to their customers
and employees. A smartphone is the modern bank branch. The palm of your hand is replacing traditional brick-and-mortar
stores. Access without delay or interruption, 24/7, is the new normal. If they can’t get what they want, when
they want it, customers go elsewhere.
Cisco commissioned Forrester Consulting to conduct a Total Economic Impact™ (TEI) study and examine the potential return on investment (ROI) enterprises may realize by deploying Cisco TrustSec software-defined segmentation. The purpose of this study is to provide readers with a framework to evaluate the potential financial impact of Cisco on their organizations.
To better understand the benefits, costs, and risks associated with TrustSec, Forrester interviewed four customers that had deployed TrustSec. The TrustSec software-defined segmentation solution simplifies the provisioning and management of highly secure access to network services and applications. Unlike access control mechanisms that work on network topology, TrustSec policies use logical grouping. Highly secure access is consistently maintained even as resources are moved in mobile and virtualized networks. A more detailed description of TrustSec is available on the Cisco TrustSec Overview page in this document.

Data protection often seems like a clash between competing interests: the need to protect data, against the need to protect access to data. The challenge lies in deploying the right protection across the different systems and types of data, since they each require different forms of protection.
Das Privileged Access Management umfasst Funktionen für Kontrolle, Monitoring und Auditing, mit denen die Risiken im Zusammenhang mit privilegierten Anwendern, Accounts und Anmeldeinformationen gemindert werden sollen. In den letzten Jahren hat sich herausgestellt, dass diese Aufgabe für Unternehmen aller Arten hohe Priorität hat. Diesem Anstieg an Interesse und Aufmerksamkeit liegen mehrere Faktoren zugrunde:
Diebstahl und Missbrauch sensibler administrativer Anmeldeinformationen verursachen Sicherheitsverletzungen und Betriebsunterbrechungen.
CA Privileged Access Manager verbessert die IT-Security, Unternehmenseffizienz und Compliance durch den Schutz privilegierter Anmeldeinformationen und Ressourcen sowie durch die effiziente Überwachung, Kontrolle und Verwaltung der Aktivitäten privilegierter Anwender.
There’s no getting around it. Passed in May 2016, the European Union (EU) General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) replaces the minimum standards of the Data Protection Directive, a 21-year-old system that allowed the 28 EU member states to set their own data privacy and security rules relating to the information of EU subjects. Under the earlier directive, the force and power of the laws varied across the continent. Not so starting May 25, 2018.
The right identity and access management solution can integrate with a healthcare provider’s EMR system to help keep sensitive medical data safe—and keep the organization compliant. It can provide valuable insights and visibility into accounts, access privileges and entitlements, across the wide range of users. By closing the gaps in identity protection, organizations can fight the threats of inadvertent misuse and intentional theft that may lead to security breaches.
As security threats increase and government regulations require more control over users and data, it is important for organizations to evolve their security measures. As enterprises rapidly expand their footprints into cloud, mobile and social, they must ensure that the right users have the right access to sensitive data and applications. Strong as well as optimized identities are becoming increasingly important as insider threat and tightened regulations become more prevalent.

The modern organization has recognized the need to
embrace mobile devices in the workplace. Some have fully
implemented a bring-your-own-device (BYOD) program,
while some have adopted a hybrid model of corporateowned
and personally-enabled (COPE) devices. Many
companies then choose to deploy an Enterprise Mobility
Management (EMM) or Mobile Device Management (MDM)
solution to enable some control of the mobile devices
that access corporate data. For companies at this stage of
mobility, security is the next critical layer. As Gartner states,

The adoption of mobile in the enterprise space is accelerating. Users of mobile devices choose what applications they want to use, but it is up to the enterprise to predict the data that they will be accessing. With that change, comes a new spectrum of risk that CISOs must consider.

How to think about the risk to data from the mobile ecosystem
Mobile devices, even those that are corporate owned, are personal. Your CEO uses the same smartphone to send confidential emails, snap family photos, inspect customer records, get directions to meetings, and scrutinize financial reports. Every employee in your organization does the same thing. Your organization's critical data is constantly being accessed by mobile devices, and once it leaves the network you have no visibility into where it goes, and little or no ability to enforce your security policy to protect it.
Your organization’s sensitive data has made the mobile ecosystem the new frontier for a wide spectrum of risk that every CISO must now understand. Take a deep dive into all twelve elements of the Mobile Risk Matrix in the interactive table below.

“We don’t have a BYOD programme.”
This statement, referencing mobile device usage in the workplace, is a refrain often heard in European organisations that are
tasked with securing the privacy of highly confidential data and personally identifiable information, and managing employee
authorisation and access to that data. However, businesses often believe that they aren’t actually subject to cyber-threats
from mobile devices because, simply, they don’t currently allow personal mobile devices to access their networks. Ultimately,
this posture puts data at risk because every company has a BYOD policy whether they like it or not.
For the past decade, financial institutions have created sophisticated digital platforms for consumers to access, save, share and interact with their financial accounts. As sophisticated as these digital platforms have become, cyber criminals continue to pose an ever-present risk for everyone – from individual consumers to large corporations
In his recent article, 2018 Outlook: Customer Experience and Security Strike a Balance, Andrew Davies, vice president of global market strategy for Fiserv’s Financial Crime Risk Management division, explains how and why security will become a key differentiator for financial institutions as they respond to a changing landscape, which includes:
•Global payment initiatives
•Open Banking standards
•Artificial intelligence and machine learning
•Consumer demand for real-time fraud prevention and detection

Any digital device or application can be a vector for a cyberattack, but email is an especially acute problem for many organizations. As individuals or members of organizations, most people rely on email to communicate with colleagues, whether in the next cubicle or across the globe. For many in the business world, 24/7 access to email is routine, and often required. Instant, ubiquitous and inexpensive communication gives us quick access to others in our business and personal lives, but gives criminals easy and direct access to us as well.
Your network is more complex than ever before. Your employees are accessing any application they want, using work or personal devices. Oftentimes, these applications span both personal and work-related usage, but the business and security risks are often ignored. Prospective employees are asking about application usage policies before accepting a job.
Your network is more complex than ever before. Your employees are accessing any application they want, using work or personal devices. Often times, these applications span both personal and work related usage, but the business and security risks are often ignored. Prospective employees are asking about application usage policies before accepting their new job. Adding another layer of complexity is the concern about the effectiveness of your cybersecurity posture. Is your business a target for a cyberattack Is it a question of when, as opposed to if? And are you as prepared as you could be? The complexity of your network and your security infrastructure may limit or slow your ability to respond to these and other cybersecurity challenges.
