The workplace has changed radically, and conventional approaches to desktop management and mobile device management (MDM) are no longer adequate for the new digital workplace. Enterprise IT must quickly and dramatically change the way it manages users’ access to digital resources to deliver a consistent experience across all devices, even as operating systems and platforms relentlessly evolve.
Fortunately, with the advent of Windows 10, IT now can rethink the way it aligns endpoint management with users’ new digital work styles. Read this UBM whitepaper to learn more about how these seven “musts” can help IT fully leverage Microsoft’s newest operating system to better serve the business.
In this era of cloud computing, mobile devices, and the Internet of Things (IoT), firms are testing new product offerings that combine elements of content, software, services, and hardware together. Like the innovative products themselves, the rulebook on monetizing them is evolving. Firms are shifting from one-time perpetual sales or fixed monthly subscriptions to consumption models that blend onetime, subscription, and usage-based billing. Download this white paper to learn the eight subscription billing solution providers that matter most and how they stack up.
This webinar, hosted by Palo Alto Networks, focuses on deployment of 'Zero Trust Network Segmentation' in industrial control systems in large scale, mult-plant environments. We begin with an explanation of the concepts behind 'Zero Trust', scalability, the best ways to adapt existing networking and segmentation without needing to reconfigure infrastructure, and how Palo Alto's platform adresses these needs.

The threat landscape has evolved and the traditional approach to endpoint security cannot keep up. Detection/response is not an acceptable approach. There are a number of approaches to prevent threats on the endpoint and their ability to prevent unknown and zero-day threats varies widely. Join this webinar featuring a guest speaker from Forrester where we will discuss the findings from a recent commissioned survey they conducted that evaluates these approaches and illustrates that exploit prevention and integration with a network security platform are must-have capabilities. Forrester will also summarize their recommendations for prevention of advanced threats on the endpoint.
The web application firewall (WAF) is among the most complex security technologies on the market today. The complexity of managing a WAF includes a pre-defined list of rules to identify thousands of potential exploits, intelligence about new attack vectors, and identifying malicious HTTP requests from legitimate HTTP traffic. Read this white paper to learn how to combine attack detection with threat intelligence using our cloud platform and managed security services to better protect your web applications.
"Many large enterprises struggle to decide which workloads and systems should be deployed in the public cloud versus on premise. With a strong on-premises platform in place, organizations benefit from increased reliability, speed, and security. On the other hand, by leveraging the public cloud, they gain increased flexibility and recovery capabilities. So, what goes best where?
Jim Rapoza, Senior Research Analysts at Aberdeen Group and Chuck Hollis, Senior VP at Oracle, will provide guidance aimed at helping organizations choose the right platforms for their critical workloads. They will analyze how Best-in-Class enterprises effectively integrate on-premises solutions and the public cloud, and recommend steps that businesses can take to become IT infrastructure leaders."
Netflix, one of the world’s leading Internet television networks, is using AWS to deliver billions of hours of content monthly, and run its analytics platform for optimum performance of its global service.
Understanding, managing and containing risk has become a critical factor for many organizations
as they plot their hybrid architecture strategy. Access by an expanding array of privileged identities
looms large as a risk concern once organizations look beyond tactically using cloud services for cost
and agility efficiencies. Existing approaches developed for static infrastructure can address initial
risk concerns, but fall short in providing consistent policy enforcement and continuous visibility for
dynamic, distributed infrastructure.
Multiple elements factor into how effectively an enterprise can embrace automation and advance the maturity of their transformation. However, security tools are central to enabling a structured and measured approach to managing critical access risks at each stage of the maturity model journey. With the right privileged access platform and set of tools, enterprises can progressively automate and scale access management to align risk

Headquartered in Chicago, Bean Suntory owns over 70 premium spirit brands from whiskey and rum, to vodka, cognac, tequila, and gin. Beam Suntory generates $4 billion in annual revenues.
But that revenue was in danger.
The company’s production software, Wonderware, which controls embedded systems driving almost every critical production process, was underpinned by ageing hardware. If it failed, production would come to a grinding—and expensive—halt.Every hour of downtime results in lost production, which can amount to millions of dollars in losses,” says Sanjay Kirtikar, Director Digital Technologies, Beam Suntory.
To ensure Wonderware never failed, Beam Suntory implemented hyperconverged clusters integrated with Nutanix Enterprise Cloud Platform software
The results were instant and outstanding. Beam Suntory expects a 25-35% cost benefit from lower support and maintenance efforts, and a 50% reduction in power usage.
