In the early years of software development, you would often design it, build it, and
only then think about how to secure it.
This was arguably fine in the days of monolithic applications and closed networks,
when good perimeter-based protection and effective identity and access management
would get you a long way towards minimising the risk. In today’s highly connected,
API-driven application environments, however, any given software component or
service can be invoked and potentially abused in so many different ways. Add to this
the increasing pace of change through iterative ‘DevOps-style’ delivery and ever-faster
release cycles, and many understandably assert that security management and
assurance nowadays needs to be an ongoing and embedded part of the development
and delivery process.
Today’s mobile landscape is very much a moving target. IT managers
must keep track of all types of devices and platforms, hundreds if not
thousands of applications and a threat landscape that changes by the
minute. In this ever-changing environment, IT staff often find themselves
drowning in mobile minutiae, overwhelmed by mountains of endpoint
data but unable to extract meaning from it or make business decisions
based on it.
By simplifying the ability of companies to securely extract, orchestrate and act on data from when it is generated by energy assets to when it is transmitted to the cloud, Octave simplifies the development and commercialization of Energy IoT applications. With Octave, energy companies are empowered to realize the Energy IoT’s tremendous potential, with new demand response, energy efficiency optimization, predictive maintenance and other applications that maximize the value created by energy assets and minimize their environmental impact. In doing so, these Energy IoT applications can reduce energy costs, improve customer engagement, lower greenhouse gas emissions and increase energy reliability.
Start with Sierra to learn more about how our Octave D2C data orchestration solution can help you bring to market Energy IoT applications that reimagine the future of energy.
Securing web applications in the AWS cloud environment relies on the cloud service provider and the customer working
together in a shared responsibility model. Effective security for web applications on AWS requires full visibility into the
environment in which the apps live, while also proactively monitoring for attacks without causing delays in application
development and delivery. For some customers this may be a challenge due to limited personnel resources or expertise.
This is where Alert Logic can help. We will automatically show you why, where, and how to respond to vulnerability
findings and provide you with short- and long-term recommendations to stop active attacks.
To help guide the way, following are key considerations for providing sound web application security running on the AWS

To meet the growing challenges of a competitive world economy, a digital transformation is taking place in the enterprise. Organizations realize that to be competitive they need to be more agile. They need to reach their customers wherever they are, and they need to be able to scale their applications to meet customer demands.
To meet these challenges, organizations are deploying new microservice applications that are changing the application delivery environment. These applications are agile, configured to enable new features to be added without disrupting applications in production, and designed to automatically instantiate instances in response to increasing user demand. In short, microservices are drastically changing the way that applications are deployed and managed. This introduces a high level of complexity to network infrastructures because traditional applications are not going away. Applications will continue to be designed for both microservices and traditional 3-tier imple

Application performance management (APM) is an IT discipline that continues to evolve as new technologies appear. The new wave of microservices architecture and containerization has led to what is referred to as cloud-native development, and this approach has one of the fastest adoption rates of any new technology we have witnessed. With cloud-native environments there is the need to monitor and manage these new types of applications, but the challenge is that they are quite different from traditional monolithic systems.
This report delves into what the differences are, how these affect how they are monitored, and how a new generation of vendors have stepped up and introduced novel solutions to meet these challenges. We also examine the incumbent leaders in the APM market that have transformed their solutions to expand and cover cloud-native environments.

Internet-of-things (IoT) is increasing in excitement across all industries as they look to provide innovation in their product and services, and monitor risks and costs in their business operations. But IoT is not a single technology. It is an ecosystem of human and non-human touchpoints that span across multiple technologies. This creates a dynamic and complex environment that is difficult to see and manage in scope.
The traditional monitoring approach of watching dashboards, responding to alerts, and manually analyzing doesn’t work anymore. Today’s hyper-dynamic, highly distributed IoT application environments have become way too complex and move too quickly. The volume, velocity, and variety of information is simply more than humans can keep up with using traditional tools.

The constant growth of cloud, IoT, virtualization, mobility, and digital transformation has brought tectonic changes to the world of networking. Long viewed as a bastion of single-purpose, inflexible, and closed solutions, networks have started to transform in line with the demands for flexibility, scalability, ease of management, interoperability, and application support. Networking departments need to achieve all of the tasks above while keeping costs under control. Additionally, security requirements for the new network are not letting up — quite the opposite, as the virtualized network (and general IT) environment requires rethinking, virtualization, and evolution of security architectures.
Innovative data-driven strategies are enabling organizations to connect with customers and increase operational efficiency as never before. These new initiatives are built on a multitude of applications, such as big-data analytics, supply chain, and factory automation. On average, organizations are now 53% digital as they create new ways of operating and growing their businesses, according to the Computerworld 2017 Forecast Study.
As part of this transformation, enterprises rely increasingly on multivendor, multicloud environments that mix on-premise, private, and public cloud services and workloads. This shift is causing enterprises to increase network capacity; 55% of enterprises in the Computerworld study expect to add network bandwidth in the next 12 months.
Windows 10 requires 32% more graphics consumption than Windows 7, which means in a virtual desktop environment, the end user experiences slow performance, and applications that won’t launch.
