Despite the business-transforming upsides of data from the Internet of things (IoT), there’s a downside: security. Porous networks and lax users offer tantalizing access for hackers. Although most security spending is at the enterprise level, a shift is needed to secure IoT applications and provide improved governance and accountability. Electronics companies must create secure environments that safely collect, consume, share and store data on their networks. But they also must go beyond devices and consumers to close holes to factory, ecosystem and partner networks.
Cisco Meraki MS switches are 100% cloud-managed and can be fully configured from any Internet-accessible location before ever being powered on. Simply add the switch serial number (or order number for large deployments) to your network using the Meraki web-based dashboard. Once added, the switch is fully configurable. When the switch is first powered on and connected to the Internet, it will pull its settings from the cloud.
Ponemon Institute surveyed 569 individuals in IT security who are familiar with credential stuffing and are responsible for the security of their companies’ Internet properties. The survey identified key stats about credential stuffing, including the costs organizations incur to prevent damage, and the financial consequences when attackers succeed.
According to respondents, these attacks cause costly application downtime, loss of customers, and involvement of IT security that can result in a cost of millions of dollars. The survey highlights the challenges in identifying who is accessing their websites using stolen credentials, as well as the difficulty in preventing and remediating these attacks.
According to many market research analysts, the global wireless access point (WAP) market is anticipated to continue its upward trajectory and to grow at an impressive compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of approximately 8% through 2020. Many enterprises are utilizing cloudcomputing technology for cost-cutting purposes, eliminating investments required for storage hardware and other physical infrastructures. With significant growth expected in Internet usage, particularly bandwidth consuming video traffic, WAP vendors need to enable their customers to monitor and improve device performance, improve end user experience, and enhance security. These customers include general enterprises that offer Internet access to patrons like airports, hotels, retail / shopping centers and so on. These external Internet access providers can differentiate themselves by offering optimum service through advanced network analytics, traffic shaping, application control, security capabilities and more.
This is arguably the most unsettling time in history to be a CIO. The IT landscape is shifting at a rapid pace with advances in social media, mobility and big data. The proliferation of advanced robotics is just around the corner and the Internet of Things is connecting even the most mundane objects to the internet—and probably the corporate network. Back in the 1990s, most computer hackers were interested in gaining access to networks purely for kudos among their peers. Today hackers have monetized their skills and make their living from finding vulnerabilities in IT networks.

This case study illustrates how this government agency that employs over 100,000 people and delivers more than $140 billion in public services annually was able to replace a dated system and enable remote access to securely authenticate users logging into internal corporate websites and email accounts.
Perhaps more than any programming language, Java continues to have a profound impact on how people navigate today’s world. Java’s functionality is responsible for setting a great deal of what users expect in terms of performance from their internet accessible devices.
The history of Java is more than two decades long and the language continues to grow and adapt in response to evolving consumer and business expectations. Throughout all of these changes, however, the performance of Java applications remains a paramount concern for developers.
The Internet of Everything (IoE) is a continuous interaction among people, processes, data, and things. Sensors, networks, and smart devices are ubiquitous, providing a torrent of streaming data or big data. The Internet of Things (IoT), which is a network of physical objects accessed through the Internet that can sense and communicate, is a component of IoE.
Cisco is helping customers and strategic partners leverage the full potential of IoE to achieve radical results across all sectors and industries. Indeed, IoE is capable of helping public safety and justice agencies increase cost efficiency, improve safety and security, provide better response times, and increase productivity.
Transformation doesn’t happen overnight. It takes time, commitment, and an understanding of the operational mission. Today, the Internet of Everything (IoE) is driving transformation by securely extending
the network to the tactical edge and providing the Department of Defense (DoD) unprecedented access, agility, and capability.
Web applications are often the most vulnerable part of a company’s infrastructure and yet are typically given direct paths to the internet, thus leaving these vulnerabilities exposed. IBM commissioned Tolly to evaluate IBM Security Access Manager for its Web protection effectiveness and performance as well as its identity federation, risk management and mobile one-time password capabilities. Tolly found that IBM Security Access Manager provided effective, high-performance threat protection while conveniently providing identity federation features and flexible risk-based access options.
Banking systems are inherently distributed in multiple branch and ATM locations, as well as home banking over the internet. As the number of access points grows, so does the complexity of IT systems management. Systems need to be readily available and productive yet secure and protected from data-breach.

Primary internet connections fail for a variety of reasons: severe weather, downed poles and lines or simply heavier than usual network congestion. Business continuity solutions provide businesses with back-up internet access via a cellular network when primary Wide Area Network (WAN) connections fail or are over-loaded. These solutions enable businesses to:
Maintain seamless, uninterrupted access to the internet
Process credit card transactions
Access to important information stored online
This paper will provide an overview of business continuity solutions, examples of in-use scenarios and a path to adoption in an easy to understand and digestible way. Download now.
Between the Internet of Things, customer experience and loyalty programs, social network monitoring, connected enterprise systems and other information sources, today's organizations have access to more data than they ever had before-and frankly, more than they may know what to do with. The challenge is to not just understand that data, but actualize it and use it to recognize real business value. This ebook will walk you through a sample scenario with Albert, a data scientist who wants to put text analytics to work by using the Word2vec algorithm and other data science tools.

In the great Internet of Things (IoT) gold rush, early adopters have largely left behind identity and access management. As a result, many organizations are scrambling to deal with the consequences. Successful IoT implementations have complex relationships to people, things, and services, and the only sustainable and secure method for securing the IoT long term is to enable persistent identity across applications, devices, and things.

Most companies are have decided they need the business agility and the cost savings that come when moving to the cloud with nearly 90 percent of businesses having adopted the cloud in some capacity. But with the bewildering amount of contradictory opinions and information floating around on the Internet, not many understand exactly what that means or what it entails. Companies considering Microsoft Office 365 as their first step in moving applications to hosted solutions face similar inconsistencies, making it difficult to separate fact from fiction. For example, some businesses incorrectly believe Office 365 is simply a version of Office accessed by a browser. Astonishing right!
