Today’s workforce accesses corporate content from the office, home, and everywhere in between. They utilize non-Windows devices including iOS, Android and Mac, and demand that IT support the specialized apps they need to get the job done. Savvy organizations have embraced desktop and application virtualization to meet these demands. Download this asset to learn how Horizon Cloud with on-premises infrastructure represents a new approach to building, delivering and managing virtual workspaces. This radically simple and scalable service unifies the management of on-premises virtual workspace services (desktops and applications) through a centralized cloud control plane, enabling delivery of virtual desktops and apps for as little as $0.50/user.
As companies like yours scale their cloud environment, the question has
evolved from “what do I need to protect” to “how do I control and monitor
what I am responsible for?” Many companies, especially those who are born on
the cloud, or who are more cloud-mature understand the Shared Responsibility
Model. Now, they are focusing on building a strategy that gives them greater
control and visibility of their cloud environment.
Gartner reported that “In 2018, the 60% of enterprises that implement
appropriate cloud visibility and control tools will experience one-third fewer
security failures.” Having the right monitoring strategy is beneficial for multiple
reasons, and this eBook will detail how OneLogin implemented it in their AWS
environment, and why you should consider implementing it in yours.
"The enterprise cloud revolution is here. IT organizations everywhere, from small and mid-sized to Fortune 500 companies, are moving from on-premises software to on-demand, cloud-based services. As enterprise IT makes this transition to a new hybrid on-demand/on-premises configuration, controlling access to applications becomes increasingly important.
CIOs and their teams have a whole new set of identity management challenges; their role is also fundamentally changing. As the steward of these new services, IT must provide insight and advice about Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) products to ensure the company gets the highest business value of their investments.
Read this eBook to learn eight main identity and access management (IAM) challenges of adopting and deploying cloud applications. And, most importantly, best practices for addressing each of them."

Industry analysts expect rapid growth in the private cloud market over the next five years as CIO’s use private clouds to transform their IT environment. This growth expectation is not surprising as private clouds provide businesses with many features of a public cloud along with the security, control, and performance of a dedicated environment. While private clouds provide many advantages, they are also exceedingly complex and are difficult to manage. They must be implemented and managed by experts who understand cloud architecture and know how to upgrade, patch, monitor, and scale a cloud environment.

Many companies want to take advantage of public cloud features, but aren’t willing to compromise on the performance, security and control that they require for their business applications and data. Public clouds have the potential to introduce performance issues caused by “noisy neighbors,” security concerns associated with placing sensitive data in a shared infrastructure environment, and a lack of control driven by the inability to customize and fine-tune cloud resources to meet the needs of a given application.

Cloud Access Security Brokers (CASBs) serve as a critical control point to ensure the secure and compliant use of cloud apps and services. Cloud service providers typically maintain a shared responsibility policy for security—they guarantee the integrity of their service infrastructure, but the customer is responsible for securing actual app usage. In addition to the growing cloud security challenges organizations face to safeguard data and protect against threats in the cloud, total volume of cloud app adoption is accelerating, with most of it being done by business units and employees without approval or security oversight from the IT organization. As a result, CASB functionality has become so critical that by 2020 it is projected that 80% of enterprises will use a CASB solution. (Gartner)

Today’s workforce is increasingly nomadic. Employees use personal and company-owned devices desktops, laptops, tablets, and smartphones with various operating systems to access corporate resources over different networks from virtually anywhere. Roaming users and cloud-based applications have eroded the network perimeter where enterprises have traditionally focused their security controls.
In the wake of this disruption, vendors offered myriad point products that solve only a portion of the security problem. These products usually require costly custom integrations and high management overhead to boot.
Making matters worse, traditional security approaches can’t address an evolving threat landscape that includes ransomware, stealthy attacks that dwell in a customer’s environment for months, and threats targeting iOS and Android devices. In fact, the mobile workforce is more vulnerable than ever before.
IBM Security provides integrated access management solutions to validate who is who when users connect from inside or outside the enterprise, and to enable proactive access policies on cloud, social and mobile channels, helping improve control and security in complex online environments.
Hybrid cloud infrastructures and mobility are changing the rules of the game for IT security professionals. Read this paper to understand the requirements to adopting a new monitoring strategy to quickly detect attacks across the infrastructure you control in your data center, as well as what you don't control in the dynamic cloud.
