To manage threats to the enterprise and successfully meet compliance challenges, organizations need a comprehensive security strategy that can successfully do battle with inside as well as outside threats. Today, companies are increasingly leveraging security information management (SIM) solutions to build a clean, concise, and manageable process for dealing with the tremendous volumes of raw security information from disparate devices, applications, and databases.
To allow organizations and individuals the flexibility to address their specific challenges, Microsoft has a variety of Microsoft® Office suites to select from. This paper describes the commonalities and differences among the suites of the 2007 Microsoft Office system: Microsoft Office Standard 2007, Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2007, Microsoft Office Enterprise 2007, and Microsoft Office Ultimate 2007.

Many, if not most, organizations today are grappling with the challenge of a growing mobile technology environment. Mobility can deliver many key benefits: improved collaboration among workers, enhanced customer service, easier access to corporate information from many locations and increased productivity—to name a few.
But the proliferation of mobile devices and applications
also comes with its share of challenges, perhaps none more important than ensuring the security of the devices themselves as well as the data they contain and the enterprise networks they access.
For security and IT pros concerned with protecting sensitive information across multiple endpoints and applications. Explore how cloud can enable us to go back to basics of security to address the challenges of distributed computing and make our organizations more secure.
Until recently, businesses that were seeking information about their customers, products, or applications, in real time, were challenged to do so. Streaming data, such as website clickstreams, application logs, and IoT device telemetry, could be ingested but not analyzed in real time for any kind of immediate action. For years, analytics were understood to be a snapshot of the past, but never a window into the present. Reports could show us yesterday’s sales figures, but not what customers are buying right now.
Then, along came the cloud. With the emergence of cloud computing, and new technologies leveraging its inherent scalability and agility, streaming data can now be processed in memory,
and more significantly, analyzed as it arrives, in real time. Millions to hundreds of millions of events (such as video streams or application alerts) can be collected and analyzed per hour to deliver insights that can be acted upon in an instant. From financial services to manufacturing, this rev
Regardless of platform, the Web has become a hub of information and productivity. The browser has evolved to become one of the most-used applications, which has drawn the attention of cyber criminals – making it a potential Achilles heel for security.
This new Forrester white paper provides a snapshot of a typical day in the life of a U.S. information worker. It reveals how workers are employing new technologies and applications, interacting with their teams and engaging in mobile activities.

To succeed today, organizations need to take advantage of
information technology in every area of their business. Talent
acquisition is no exception. Robust, reliable technology can
help recruiters more effectively engage with candidates.
According to Aberdeen Group, the user experience is key.
It is more important than ever to have friendly and interactive
platforms. In terms of talent acquisition, companies that
prioritize the candidate experience are more than twice as
likely to improve their cost per hire on a year–by-year basis.1
In addition, social capabilities can enable recruiting
professionals to use the Internet for job applications, social
referrals and video interviewing. Mobile integration also
enables users to connect with information where and when
they need it.

organizations can much more quickly identify talent,
match capabilities to market needs, retain the best talent
and improve recruiting outcomes.
