The operation of your organization depends, at least in part, on its data.
You can avoid fines and remediation costs, protect your organization’s reputation and employee morale, and maintain business continuity by building a capability to detect and respond to incidents effectively.
The simplicity of the incident response process can be misleading. We recommend tabletop exercises as an important step in pressure-testing your program.

The competitive advantages and value of BDA are now widely acknowledged and have led to the shifting of focus at many firms from “if and when” to “where and how.” With BDA applications requiring more from IT infrastructures and lines of business demanding higher-quality insights in less time, choosing the right infrastructure platform for Big Data applications represents a core component of maximizing value. This IDC study considered the experiences of firms using Cisco UCS as an infrastructure platform for their BDA applications. The study found that Cisco UCS contributed to the strong value the firms are achieving with their business operations through scalability, performance, time to market, and cost effectiveness. As a result, these firms directly attributed business benefits to the manner in which Cisco UCS is deployed in the infrastructure.

E se i responsabili della sicurezza potessero prevedere il futuro? Se sapessero che un attacco è imminente, potrebbero bloccarlo o almeno mitigarne l’impatto e si adopererebbero per mettere in sicurezza le risorse che più necessitano protezione. In effetti gli addetti alla sicurezza sono in grado di vedere cosa si profila all’orizzonte: gli indizi sono molti (ed evidenti).

If you've been on the sidelines waiting to take the self-serv ice leap, this white paper will prove that you and your agents already partake in the activities needed to offer great self-service,every single day.

In a perfect world, downtime would be a thing of the past, however, as organizations continue their digital transformation journeys, more data assets are being created—generating, in turn, higher availability demands. Delivering on availability service levels is not just a technical responsibility, but also a business imperative extending well beyond IT. The consequences of failing to meet service levels can be dire and costly. Read this white paper to learn how the right tools can minimize downtime.
Intel's factories rely on thousands of PCs for manufacturing automation; keeping these PCs up and running can prevent expensive downtime. To manage these systems, Intel IT is using the Intel vPro platform's hardware- based feature, Intel Active Management Technology (Intel AMT), to help reduce production downtime caused by PC incidents by 87.5 percent.
With a hybrid IT approach, small and midsized businesses can leverage the greater control, faster access, and increased security that comes with on-premise, while taking advantage of the increased agility, reduced costs, and better flexibility that the cloud offers.
In this report we’ll look at some of the challenges that smaller organizations face in building and managing IT, along with how some businesses are leveraging a hybrid cloud and on premise approach, gaining some significant benefits through this approach.
The tipping point has arrived. Large enterprises are planning their next-generation datacenters around flash-based storage, and for good reason. Flash arrays provide read and write performance that is orders of magnitude faster than spinning media at a total cost of ownership that is on par with disk and will soon be lower. The benefits not only include improved application performance, but more consistent performance, lower latency, reduced storage footprint, streamlined storage administration, and lower operating costs. These advantages are too beneficial to your business to ignore. That’s why flash is becoming the standard for new storage investments.
In this era of digital disruption, businesses must be more agile to capture opportunities. Many viewed cloud computing technology as the way to do this, promising to address agility, scalability, and cost. But in moving to the cloud, many found that its security, compliance, and performance did not fully meet their needs. Additionally, previous common thought was public cloud is less expensive than private cloud. We now know that is not true in all cases. Savvy businesses realise hybrid IT, which includes both offpremises and on-premises services, enables better agility. After initial experience with public cloud offerings, businesses learned that many workloads are best hosted onpremises, primarily due to security, compliance, performance, control, and cost issues.
Security is a looming issue for businesses. The threat landscape is increasing, and attacks are becoming more sophisticated. Emerging technologies like IoT, mobility, and hybrid IT environments now open new business opportunity, but they also introduce new risk. Protecting servers at the software level is no longer enough. Businesses need to reach down into the physical system level to stay ahead of threats. With today’s increasing regulatory landscape, compliance is more critical for both increasing security and reducing the cost of compliance failures. With these pieces being so critical, it is important to bring new levels of hardware protection and drive security all the way down to the supply chain level. Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) has a strategy to deliver this through its unique server firmware protection, detection, and recovery capabilities, as well as its HPE Security Assurance.
If your business is like most, you are grappling with data storage. In an annual Frost & Sullivan survey of IT decision-makers, storage growth has been listed among top data center challenges for the past five years.2 With businesses collecting, replicating, and storing exponentially more data than ever before, simply acquiring sufficient storage capacity is a problem.
Even more challenging is that businesses expect more from their stored data. Data is now recognized as a precious corporate asset and competitive differentiator: spawning new business models, new revenue streams, greater intelligence, streamlined operations, and lower costs. Booming market trends such as Internet of Things and Big Data analytics are generating new opportunities faster than IT organizations can prepare for them.

HPEcommissioned Forrester Consulting to conduct a Total Economic Impact™ (TEI) study and examine the potential return on investment (ROI)enterprises may realize by deploying the HPE 3PARStoreServAll-flash Storagesolution. The purpose ofthis study is to provide readers with a framework to evaluate the potential financial impact of 3PAR All-flash Storageon theirorganizations.
Businesses in every sector are increasingly reliant on applications to handle everything from back-end operations to the delivery of new products, services, and customer experiences. That is why infrastructure system availability and the elimination of unplanned downtime are more important than ever before.
Recent research has shown that the average cost of an hour of downtime is about half-a-million dollars,1 and this will only increase with the continued digitization of industries.
