Amazon Web Services (AWS) provides rapid access to flexible and low-cost IT resources. With cloud computing, public sector organizations no longer need to make large upfront investments in hardware, or spend time and money on managing infrastructure. The goal of this whitepaper is to help you gain insight into some of the financial considerations of operating a cloud IT environment and learn how to maximize the overall value of your decision to adopt AWS.
A range of application security tools was developed to support the efforts to secure the enterprise from the threat posed by insecure applications. But in the ever-changing landscape of application security, how does an organization choose the right set of tools to mitigate the risks their applications pose to their environment? Equally important, how, when, and by whom are these tools used most effectively?
As the lines between business-to-business (B2B) and business-to-consumer (B2C) marketing continue to blur, the B2B marketing environment looks set to change, with companies seeing more demands placed on their operations to satisfy their audiences. To stay competitive, B2B marketers must expand their existing operating models to incorporate data-driven decision-making, relationship engagement, and digital technologies that enable individualized communications.
Today’s C-level executives expect data and analytics to provide them with speed and agility to deliver competitive advantage and to disrupt new markets. But, in today’s complex data environment exists a near paradox between these expectations, that companies will be able to rapidly deliver value using data and analytics--and the complexities of the data landscape, making it more difficult to find, govern, connect to and access the data needed to deliver that value.
Once thing is clear: if management expectation is to be met, simplifying connectivity is a must.In this white paper, veteran analyst Mike Ferguson, Managing Director of Intelligent Business Strategies explores how simplifying data access –connectivity –aligns expectations with data realities thus decreasing time to value.
In order to provide high quality, cost effective business services in complex, distributed environments, improved IT management strategies are required. Business Service Management (BSM) is a strategic approach to managing IT services in support of improved business performance.
Managing service delivery in todayís complex and dynamic business environments demands new and different approaches from IT. The explosive growth and the rate of change of information has brought particularly daunting challenges for IT that have contributed to incredibly complex underlying infrastructures. To get a true picture of all of the components necessary to support an IT or Business Service, you must access and bring together data that resides in disparate data silos throughout the enterprise.
Business Service Management (BSM) is of growing importance in the IT world. By managing IT systems according to the business services they support - like order entry, online sales, shipping, or customer service - IT is able to deliver on real business goals like providing competitive advantage, improving customer satisfaction, driving revenue growth, and increasing shareholder value.
A recent survey of CIOs found that over 75% want to develop an overall information strategy in the next three years, yet over 85% are not close to implementing an enterprise-wide content management strategy. Meanwhile, data runs rampant, slows systems, and impacts performance. Hard-copy documents multiply, become damaged, or simply disappear.
Since Adobe debuted the PDF file format in the early 1990s, it has become the defacto standard for electronic documents in many markets. While engineers, publishers, and printers push the format to its technical limits with rich media and 3-D content, the general office worker comprises the PDF-using majority.
The cloud has become a valued part of modern infrastructure and there are now more resources than ever to help organizations secure their cloud environments. Even with all of the available tools and resources, there are still a million ways to configure services incorrectly. Public and non-public breaches seem to happen weekly and the maturity of the information security program doesn’t seem to influence the likelihood of the breach. One easy mistake in a cloud environment can be disastrous and it’s reasonable to be concerned when a new breach report hits the news.
Just like anything in security, there are no magic bullets, but to help address these concerns, NetSPI recommends some general guidelines to help get ahead of the cloud security curve. These are general best practices that could be applied to any portion of your IT environment, but it’s good to keep these in mind while working with the cloud.

It’s critical for marketing teams to adopt experimentation to continually improve and help prove their impact to their organizations. Unfortunately, many teams do not know how to deploy scientific tests correctly in the marketing process. Most do not use an iterative design approach, while many others fail to create the right kind of environment to encourage curiosity and experimentation. What must marketers do to build a culture of innovation, and test their way to successful engagement marketing?

Nearly all cyberattacks must cross the network, but security analysts often struggle to make quick sense of traffic at scale for hunting and incident response, trapped between data-starved logs (e.g. Netflow) and too much data (full packets) to analyze in time. What if instead there was a “Goldilocks’ for network data?
This free 1-hour webinar from GigaOm Research brings together experts in network traffic analysis, featuring GigaOm analyst Simon Gibson and a special guest from Corelight, Steve Smoot. They’ll discuss the evolution of network analysis and explain how open-source Zeek (formerly Bro) came to be the network traffic analysis tool of choice for security analysts to make fast sense of their traffic.
We’ll dive into Zeek’s creation at Livermore Labs and discusses some of the challenges that come with using it in large, fast network environments and explain how Corelight enables organizations to quickly take advantage of the power of Zeek at scale. In this 1-hour webinar, you
A huge array of BI, analytics, data prep and machine learning platforms exist in the market, and each of those may have a variety of connectors to different databases, file systems and applications, both on-premises and in the cloud. But in today’s world of myriad data sources, simple connectivity is just table stakes.
What’s essential is a data access strategy that accounts for the variety of data sources out there, including relational and NoSQL databases, file formats across storage systems — even enterprise SaaS applications — and can make them all consumable by tools and applications built for tabular data. In today’s data-driven business environment, fitting omni-structured data and disparate applications into a consistent data API makes comprehensive integration, and insights, achievable.

Securing cloud environments is different from securing traditional data centers and endpoints.
The dynamic nature of the cloud requires continuous assessment and automation to avoid
misconfigurations, compromises, and breaches.
It can also be difficult to gain complete visibility across dynamic and rapidly changing cloud
environments — limiting your ability to enforce security at scale. On top of these challenges, cloud
governance is critical to maintain compliance with regulatory requirements and security policies as
Because cloud deployments are not just implemented once and left untouched, organizations need
to consider how to integrate security into their CI/CD pipeline and software development lifecycle.
Implementing a security solution that addresses cloud challenges requires deep security and cloud
expertise that organizations often do not have.
Once in the cloud, organizations manage and create environments via automation, adapt their
workloads to changes by automa
Imperva, an APN Security Competency Partner, can help protect your application workloads on AWS with the Imperva SaaS Web Application Security
platform. The Imperva high-capacity network of globally distributed security services protects websites against all types of DDoS threats, including networklevel Layer 3 and Layer 4 volumetric attacks—such as synchronized (SYN) floods and User Datagram Protocol (UDP) floods—and Layer 7 application-level
attacks (including the OWASP Top 10 threats) that attempt to compromise application resources. Harnessing real data about current threats from a global
customer base, both the Web Application Firewall (WAF) and DDoS protection, incorporate an advanced client classification system that blocks malicious
traffic without interfering with legitimate users. Enterprises can easily create custom security rules in the GUI to enforce their specific security policy. In
addition, this versatile solution supports hybrid environments, allowing you to manage th
DigiCert implemented Imperva to protect their hybrid environment. They
were already using Imperva’s WAF on-premises to defend against Layer 7
attacks, known threats, and zero-day attacks to rapidly identify the threats
that required investigation. By expanding their usage of Imperva, DigiCert
was able to extend protection to AWS and maintain their security posture
both during and after migration.
Imperva’s sophisticated threat detection technology draws upon vast
experience in the WAF market. As traffic passes through their network,
advanced client classification technology (together with crowdsourcing
and IP reputation data) automatically analyzes it to identify and block web
application attacks. These include SQL injection, cross-site scripting, illegal
resource access, comment spam, site scraping, malicious bots, and other
top threats. Granular filters and controls reduce false positives and prevent
access from unwanted visitors, while IP address shielding hides the web
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
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.

Fulfilling the security and compliance obligations within the AWS Shared Responsibility Model is critical as organizations shift more of their infrastructure to the cloud. Most infrastructure and application monitoring solutions haven’t caught up to meet these new requirements, forcing IT and security teams to resort to traditional monitoring strategies that don’t allow for innovation and growth.
