The cloud — at one point it was a revolution in the workplace. Now it is simply accepted as an efficient way to get business done.
Most of today’s IT security was built to protect a well-defined network infrastructure, but that is yesterday’s architecture. When users and assets move outside the network perimeter where the traditional security stack can no longer protect them, your enterprise is exposed to an entirely new set of risks. And with more apps and sensitive data living in the cloud or on mobile devices, gaps emerge that leave organizations susceptible to attacks.
Read this flipbook to see how you can take your security to new heights. We'll explain the challenges driving the shift in the market and how you can take advantage of these changes and improve security for your organization.

For a backup solution to be considered flexible, it needs to satisfy
several key business requirements. It should integrate seamlessly
with any servers you’re running and provide full support for
all the applications your business uses. It should enable you to
protect assets in different parts of the country or overseas. And
it should let you manage and monitor backups from anywhere.
A flexible backup solution gives you everything you need to
protect the technology investments you make now and in the
future. So instead of having to buy multiple solutions to support
your changing needs, you can have a single solution that adapts
to fit your environment. We call that flexible deployment.
The digital transformation (DX) of industries is well under way — a transformation that is enabled by the Internet of Things (IoT). The IoT allows organizations to reinvent existing industry processes, augment how they engage with their customers, and accelerate the speed at which they deliver their products and services. This white paper looks at how these digital strategies facilitated by the IoT are reshaping those industry segments that are both asset rich and focused on services rather than products. The paper then explores IoT scenarios that hold great promise and how companies are approaching investment to optimize business outcomes.
The growing need for organizations to treat information as an asset is making metadata management strategic, driving significant growth for metadata management solutions. We evaluate nine vendors to help data and analytics leaders find the solution that best suits the needs of their organization.
IBM QRadar and BigFix solutions empower IT security teams to view, prioritize and respond to endpoint intelligence in near real time.
How can an organization stay ahead of these advanced security threats? Maintaining a high level of baseline security by consistently enforcing security policies and patch levels on endpoints and servers is definitely required and important. But when networks can have multiple vulnerabilities per IP address at scan time, the slow process of mitigating and patching these weaknesses can result in dangerous security gaps. Today’s IT personnel have to make difficult, risk-based decisions on where to focus their efforts—often without having a complete picture of the security environment. This is even more critical when the number of vulnerabilities across the organization is increasing while the organization has limited resources and skills to fix the vulnerabilities.
There's an old saying in information security: "We want our network to be like an M&M, with a hard crunchy outside and a soft chewy center." For today's digital business, this perimeter-based security model is ineffective against malicious insiders and targeted attacks. Security and risk (S&R) pros must eliminate the soft chewy center and make security ubiquitous throughout the digital business ecosystem — not just at the perimeter. In 2009, we developed a new information security model, called the Zero Trust Model, which has gained widespread acceptance and adoption.
This report explains the vision and key concepts of the model. This is an update of a previously published report; Forrester reviews and updates it periodically for continued relevance and accuracy.
The first event in the Partnering with Certainy Webinar Series, "Customer Demands at the Edge."
Trends like IoT are driving customer experience expectations in a way that demands resiliency in local edge environments. As a result, we’re seeing a rise of edge computing (compute power coming out of the cloud and into the access layer). Customer demands manifest themselves differently based on things like company size and segment. For example, a retail customer’s business imperatives might look different from a doctor’s office. But one thing remains constant: A standardized, redundant, and repeatable physical infrastructure can protect the availability of these now-critical access-layer IT assets.

The framework presented here is a way to avoid data dysfunction via a coordinated and well-planned governance initiative. These initiatives require two elements related to the creation and management of data:
• The business inputs to data strategy decisions via a policy
• The technology levers needed to monitor production data
based on the policies.
Collectively, data governance artifacts (policies, guiding principles and operating procedures) give notice to all stakeholders and let them know, “We value our data as an asset in this organization, and this is how we manage it.”
Do you know how your company is measuring up against the competition? It's imperative to uncover every distinction that sets your company apart. Your people, or talent, is a valuable asset you can use to impact success.

An effective service catalog enables IT to deliver business services that are more customer and service focused, which results in higher customer satisfaction, provides standardization and consistency and increases IT visibility across the organization.
Waterline Data automates the cataloging of data assets and provides an Amazon.com-like guided shopping approach to data discovery that is intended to take the guesswork out of targeting the right data.
In this report, Forrester Research recommends that application development and delivery (AD&D) professionals working on BI and big data initiatives get the best out of both by designing and integrating them in a flexible data platform.
As IT departments’ lists of backlogged application development projects keep growing, so does the speed of new development requests from line-of-business personnel. For many IT departments, the speed of business — the speed of requests for additional developments — can’t be met under current practices. This inability to keep pace with critical development requests, supporting timely strategy modifications, seriously impacts an enterprise’s profitability. The solution FICO advocates — one that accounts for budget constraints, legacy operational realities and quality assurance — is to empower line-of-business personnel as Citizen Developers, giving them the right set of technology assets to quickly, safely and cost effectively participate in application development.
"Mobile and cloud deployment issues are dominating the concerns of organizations today. End-user mobility and flexibility versus IT control and visibility are the opposing requirements challenging even the most nimble of environments. Organizations are searching for several key capabilities to address this dichotomy:
• Infrastructure that is optimized for end users to drive down costs, simplify
acquisition, upgrade easily, and support policy management
• Flexibility in delivering workspaces to users—on-premises, cloud, and
offline—all within a unified workspace with single sign-on
• Management capabilities encompassing the entire ecosystem and providing
security, compliance, and management of day-to-day end-user environments

Something odd happened during Selectica’s roll-up strategy. Usually when a technology vendor acquires a number of providers at relatively low valuations, its focus tends to be on financially engineering the various SaaS, maintenance, upsell and other income schemes from the assets. But in Selectica’s case, the acquired became the basis of the company, in a manner in which the sum of the assets became an entirely different equation that it likely even bargained for before getting into the activity in the first place. But sometimes the uncertainty of post-merger integrations can lead to an outcome that benefits all parties involved (including customers) in ways that would be difficult to have imagined going into the process.
