Websites provide online businesses with an unprecedented level of contact with customers and end
users. However, they also place business information where it can be easily accessed by third parties –
often using automated tools known as “bots”. For many organizations, bots represent up to 50%
or more of their overall website traffic, from good bots engaged in essential business tasks to bad
bots conducting fraudulent activities. Regardless of business impact, bot traffic can reduce website
performance for legitimate users and increase IT costs. Organizations need a flexible framework to
better manage their interaction with different categories of bots and the impact that bots have on
their business and IT infrastructure.
Can your business afford to lose $9,000 per minute?
According to the Ponemon Institute $9,000 is the average cost of an unplanned outage. In some cases the costs are much higher. The catalogue of cloud outages over recent years is well publicized and reads like a “who’s who” of the technology industry. It seems no one is immune.
But when it comes to delivering digital content, downtime isn’t the only concern. Today a poor user experience can be just as damaging as an outage. According to Limelight research, 78% of people will stop watching an online video after it buffers three times, and the majority of people will not wait more than 5 seconds for a website to load.
Organizations looking to deliver great digital experiences for their customers often choose to deliver that content using Content Delivery Networks (CDNs). Using multiple CDNs to deliver these digital content experiences promises even greater levels of availability and performance. But it brings with it a host of questi
SQL is a critical skill for business intelligence. From accessing to transforming to reporting on data, SQL gives you the power to get the job done. It can help you discover exactly how your company is performing, what your customers are doing, or how people have reacted to your marketing campaigns.
Unfortunately, while SQL can tell you what has happened, it can’t tell you what will happen. What if you have questions like:
• How valuable is a lead based on company attributes and their behavior on our website? • How much MRR will we generate in the next 30 days? • Which customers are likely to churn next month?
The pace of business is lightning fast. Technology runs faster – and customers want service even faster still. To keep up with the demands of a company in this age, you need hardware infrastructure capable of supporting large amounts of work with a more responsive experience. Our work in the Principled Technologies datacenter showed that the 14th generation Dell EMC™ PowerEdge™ R720xd could deliver just that.

Employees, devices, and applications are no longer locked away inside the corporate perimeter. They’re on the web and on the go. Providing security for a new breed of anytime, anywhere workers and cloud-based applications requires a novel approach: a zero trust security model.
Assuming that every user, request, and server is untrusted until proven otherwise, a zero trust solution dynamically and continually assesses trust every time a user or device requests access to a resource. But zero trust offers more than a line of defense.
The model’s security benefits deliver considerable business value, too. Read this white paper to learn more about:
-Protecting your customers’ data
-Decreasing the time to breach detection
-Gaining visibility into your enterprise traffic
-Reducing the complexity of your security stack
-Solving the security skills shortage
