The Summer 2018 security report is about change: what’s new and unusual in DDoS attacks, where are the surprising data patterns, and how should enterprises and security professionals prepare for the unexpected. Looking back at November 2017 to April 2018, as well as year-over-year changes, Akamai analysts identified data trends that spotlight the new and unfamiliar. The Summer 2018 State of the Internet / Security: Web Attacks report covers atypical attack methods, credential abuse attacks and law enforcement prosecution of DDoS-for-hire platforms. Guest writer Rik Ferguson also explores future threat scenarios.

Automated application quality assurance and testing are fundamental to the delivery of the service levels and managed risks that are essential to delivering business outcomes you can depend on. In this context, CA’s mainframe Application Quality Management and Testing Tools send very strong messages: the tools are being actively developed and, where appropriate, integrated with equivalent tools on the distributed platforms, to help companies deliver holistic, automated, business services.
Business and IT executives should not have to choose between their desire to innovate for future growth and the desire to avoid disrupting current operations. Enterprise innovation that embraces and extends existing infrastructure and applications is possible through modern software architectures such as web services and SOA – as long as those investments perform competitively when measured against alternative platforms and they are able to be modernized to participate in these architectures.
This paper touches upon the following topics:
-Critical vulnerabilities are on the decline, but still pose a significant threat
-Mature technologies introduce continued risk
-Mobile platforms represent a major growth area for vulnerabilities
-Web applications remain a substantial source of vulnerabilities
-Cross-site scripting remains a major threat to organizations and users
-Effective mitigation for cross-frame scripting remains noticeably absent

Agent-based security solutions such as anti-virus software rely
on controlling all processes on a system. This approach breaks
in sandboxed environments as one process cannot control other aspects of the system. To secure mobile, IT has to replace traditional PC management tools with purpose-built enterprise mobility management (EMM) Platforms, designed to enable end-user productivity while securing apps, content and devices.
Read this vendor assessment from IDC and find out about the suitability of 10 vendors' AFA platforms for dense mixed enterprise workload consolidation. Discover the areas where the most differentiation between vendors was noted, including their strategies around NVMe and cloud-based predictive analytics.
One of the most effective ways to address database performance and cost challenges is to modernize the underlying hardware infrastructure. Innovations such as flash storage, converged infrastructure architectures, and sophisticated data management platforms can have a major impact.

Over the past few years, organizations have used a variety of tools and technologies
to enable basic mobile device management (MDM) and essential apps like email and
calendar. But those capabilities are inadequate for companies that want to move beyond
the basics and transform their business processes by securely moving apps and data
to the cloud. For AirWatch customers, this means they should start evaluating leading
enterprise mobility management (EMM) platforms like MobileIron in order to achieve
their mobile transformation goals. Our platform is 100% focused on building today’s
modern enterprise architecture, which is quickly shifting core business processes away
from legacy technologies and standardizing on mobile devices and cloud services.
The workplace has changed radically, and conventional approaches to desktop management and mobile device management (MDM) are no longer adequate for the new digital workplace. Enterprise IT must quickly and dramatically change the way it manages users’ access to digital resources to deliver a consistent experience across all devices, even as operating systems and platforms relentlessly evolve.
Fortunately, with the advent of Windows 10, IT now can rethink the way it aligns endpoint management with users’ new digital work styles. Read this UBM whitepaper to learn more about how these seven “musts” can help IT fully leverage Microsoft’s newest operating system to better serve the business.
"Many large enterprises struggle to decide which workloads and systems should be deployed in the public cloud versus on premise. With a strong on-premises platform in place, organizations benefit from increased reliability, speed, and security. On the other hand, by leveraging the public cloud, they gain increased flexibility and recovery capabilities. So, what goes best where?
Jim Rapoza, Senior Research Analysts at Aberdeen Group and Chuck Hollis, Senior VP at Oracle, will provide guidance aimed at helping organizations choose the right platforms for their critical workloads. They will analyze how Best-in-Class enterprises effectively integrate on-premises solutions and the public cloud, and recommend steps that businesses can take to become IT infrastructure leaders."

Australian businesses have long been recognised as leaders in the adoption of cloud services and the migration of core infrastructure to cloud platforms.
Yet as ambitious ‘cloud-first’ programs are executed, performance and complexity issues have led many organisations to embrace the middle ground – a hybrid IT solution combining public cloud and on-premises infrastructure.
Fast-growing hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) platforms are increasingly being recognised as an ideal enabler for this strategy, with a software-based design that combines robust computing infrastructure with a high degree of centralisation, integration, flexibility, and analytics-based monitoring and manageability.
Read how companies such as Beam Suntory have redefined enterprise architecture and learn more about the way an integrated hyperconverged infrastructure can help you build the right infrastructure for the future.
