All businesses face a daily bombardment of email spam that consumes valuable IT staff
time as well as end-user productivity. In addition, email is an attack vector for many
types of security threats to businesses, including phishing, viruses, spyware, and
malicious URLs. Given that all businesses are experiencing the financial pressures of a
tightening world economy, coupled with the uncertainty of any near-term recovery, small
and medium-sized business (SMB) managers are searching for ways to cut costs while
continuing to maintain a consistent level of service and protection for their businesses.
In this Solution Profile, we will concentrate on the importance of optimizing data protection for evolving virtual networks, and on working with a trusted partner. Virtualization technology works across all sizes of business to reduce costs, control management overhead, and increase flexibility. However, virtualization also requires that companies adapt their traditional backup and data protection practices to suit the rapidly changing virtualization infrastructure.
In this strategy guide to business protection, you will learn about HP Business Protection and it's offerings in pre-configured disaster recovery solutions and how it helps hospitals to manage risk and keep critical IT structures running.

According to industry analysts, email volume in organizations is growing by more than 30% annually, and the average user receives 7MB of data per day via email. if not more. As a result of this growth, the handling of email has become a critical business, IT and regulatory issue - driving the need for email archiving solutions. Most organizations looking for an email archiving solution are motivated by four reasons: mailbox/server management, compliance/records retention, eDiscovery/litigation support, and knowledge management/IP protection. In addition to these challenges, IT departments want to know how to control costs of the email environment, while keeping important data accessible for business, legal and regulatory users.

Virtualization has without doubt enabled IT organizations to obtain maximum efficiency from their physical hardware, but virtualization has also increased the complexity these organizations have to manage, and that includes data protection. This paper discusses some of the hidden complexities virtualization introduces to backup and recovery requirements, and the challenges created when backup involves a combination of physical servers and virtual machines. It also discusses ways that backup and recovery processes can be simplified by avoiding point solutions.

This whitepaper deals with the rise of mobility, BYOD and social networking, and how these trends have led cybercriminals to exploit vulnerabilities in browsers and mobile apps. For example, more than 30,000 mostly legitimate websites become infected with malware every day. From drive-by downloads to spearfishing to XML injection, web-borne threats represent a significant new risk for businesses. The report describes how to stay on top of this changing threat landscape and prevent damaging attacks with:
• 100% protection against known viruses
• Industry-leading URL filtering and IP protection via the world’s largest threat database
• Extended protection for smartphones and tablets
• Simplified web-based management

The implications of data loss are significant. Organizations that ignore the law affecting collaboration and information sharing are at serious risk of litigation, fines and brand damage. The paradigm shift from organizationally-defined to user-defined information governance is making it that much more difficult to maintain control of business activity and data.
This informative white paper by legal firm Field Fisher Waterhouse evaluates the legal risks of uncontrolled collaboration and information sharing and what to do about them, while providing in-depth insights into:
• Landmark incidents that have influenced data protection laws
• How to navigate different jurisdictional privacy frameworks
• Top 4 types of legal risk to protect against
• Top 5 recommendations for implementing good governance
This white paper provides insights into the current threat landscape for the financial services industry. Information is based on cyber security event data collected by IBM, as well as data derived from responding to, and performing forensics on, cyber security incidents.
A security framework is a step-by-step approach to helping an organization move from meeting its basic security requirements to providing a fully security-optimized environment. Five types of frameworks address progressive steps in security maturity as needs and capabilities change.

Software development has evolved from rigid waterfall methodologies to more streamlined
approaches, like Agile and more recently DevOps. This evolution has taken place in
large part to shorten development life cycles and meet increased business demands.
Today, businesses of all sizes have built an advantage by implementing a DevOps culture
and processes, which break down silos between development and operations, allowing
organizations to create better software faster.
As organizations implement DevOps on Amazon Web Services (AWS), they need to
understand the security implications. The AWS Shared Responsibility Model makes clear
that AWS secures what’s “on the cloud,” while the customer is responsible for securing
their assets “in the cloud.” When AWS customers go about securing their DevOps
environments, they need to do so in a way that provides robust protection without limiting
