Regardless of whether your company is subject to HIPAA, Sarbanes-Oxley, Gramm-Leach-Bliley, any number of state regulations, or none at all, configuration compliance has a place in most if not all business and government organizations. Find out in this paper how you can achieve automated configuration compliance with the SafeWord SecureWire IAM appliance from Secure Computing.
The world of super computing has changed in recent years, moving from a scale-up, monolithic, expensive architecture to the scale-out clustering of low cost microprocessors, also referred to as High Performance Business Computing (HPBC) clusters.
The primary IT concern today is to ensure that the applications and information that drive critical business processes are available when they are needed, whenever they are needed. We present a description of the required architecture and operation for an automatic failover solution, demonstrating how a solution should be carefully engineered for ease of operation and management.

Network Centric Operations (NCO) recognises the demand for pervasive decision-making in the modern battlespace. NCO provides the ability to leverage information networks to generate a more dynamic and agile decision-making space. An important dimension of this approach is the technological flexibility to quickly move the decision-making authority hierarchically or geographically as the situation demands. A fundamental enabler to this approach is the concept of a services orientated architecture (SOA). The use of industry-standard IT architectures provides the means of ensuring that systems can be provisioned rapidly, can be shared as appropriate, and can give the flexibility and response times required within such challenging environments.
Get this free whitepaper now and read how a newer architecture, Appliance-enabled Software (AeS) services, combines a plug-in monitoring appliance with a hosted dashboard application to provide the benefits of SaaS (Software-as-a-Service) along with failover out-of-band communication capabilities for dependable alert notification and escalation.
The information overload on SOA is largely on describing its merits, its principles and the vast variety of products intended to address its needs. This document is written to identify the factors to be considered, and articulate the principles and questions to be asked that will drive the decisions within each enterprise towards creating a road map for implementation.

The ProofMark software solution is a broadly applicable system that operates on a computer, server, network, system, or infrastructure. This system utilizes public-key cryptography to create an irrefutable record of the time-existence and exact composition of any digital data. This document, the ProofMark System Concepts, Architecture, and Planning Guide, provides you with a broad technical overview of the ProofMark system.
IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) is an open international standard for Next Generation Networking. It supports the delivery of Voice over IP (VoIP) and various multimedia services. IMS is not in itself a service, but an architecture for service delivery. IMS was originally developed by wireless carriers within the context of the Third Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) in 2002. Since then, its advantages have led to the adoption of IMS by wireline carriers.
This white paper presents how a radically consolidated, scalable core network architecture based on multi-core processor technology can significantly reduce the cost of the core network and thereby reducing the cost to serve the first WIMAX subscribers.
This paper reviews the business cost of major outages. It also details some of the reasons that network architecture has become so complex, discusses current approaches to the problem and finally presents NETCONF as a powerful building block solution to the network management problem.
Web Services are emerging as the preeminent method for program-to-program communication across corporate networks as well as the Internet. Securing web Services has been a challenge until recently, as typical Web authentication and authorization techniques employed browser-to-server architectures (not program-to-program). This resulted in user identity ending at the Web Application Server, forcing the Web Services Provider to trust blindly that the Web Services Requester had established identity and trust with the end user.
Enterprise-critical applications—those which drive the core of an organization—require the highest availability infrastructure to support the most stringent service levels. EMC meets this need with a high performing, functionally capable, and competitively priced high-end networked storage system—the EMC® Symmetrix® VMAX® 20K system with the Enginuity™ operating environment. The VMAX 20K scale-out architecture helps organizations exceed the performance and capacity demands of hyper-consolidation, cloud deployments, and all-virtual Software Defined Data Centers (SDDCs), while simplifying the costs of data management.

We are pleased to present the findings of The Impact of IT Transformation on Enterprise Computing sponsored by Logicalis. The objective of this research is to better understand how the different stages of IT transformation can affect an organization, the challenges of advancing through each stage, and how successful progression can improve an organization’s IT effectiveness.
To better understand the benefits, costs, and risks associated
with a Cisco UCS implementation, Forrester interviewed
several customers with multiple years of experience using
Cisco UCS. Cisco Unified Computing System and servers
unify computing, networking, management, virtualization, and
storage access into a single integrated architecture.
To better understand the benefits, costs, and risks associated with Cisco TrustSec, Forrester interviewed two companies. Company A is an organization that provides senior housing for over 22,000 residents in the US. This organization used Cisco TrustSec to provide highly secure segmented mobile network services to its residents. Company B is an international packaging and paper group company experiencing rapid growth. It used Cisco TrustSec as an innovative solution to quickly integrate the infrastructure of new acquisitions into its own and standardize security architecture across its wide area network (WAN) globally. While the case study will talk about the experiences of these two companies, the financial analysis focuses on the impact that Cisco TrustSec had on one organization.
This whitepaper explains that USB drives have been used to transport viruses and malware, both on purpose and accidentally. The paper explains that no manually handling of files, such as with USB drives, is unnecessary when you set up a secure network architecture using five zones of protection. You can transfer files to and from your network around the globe, and know the data and the network are secure, automatically scanning files to block dangerous data while allowing "clean" data into the network. The paper notes several reasons why it matters that data is secure while remaining accessible.
As organizations prioritize digital transformation initiatives, many are finding that legacy
networks are holding them back. To support new business models, cloud adoption, and an
explosion in connected devices, modern networks must support interoperability across data
centers, multiple clouds, branch locations, and edge devices. Applications now run at every
point on this spectrum, and they are critical to businesses’ ability to win in hypercompetitive marketplaces. Yet, even as business success has become more dependent on
this new architecture, and the amount of data flowing across connections has increased,
many organizations still lack a unified approach to management, automation, and security
The Wide Area Network (WAN) is in the midst of a significant evolution. Software-defined WAN
(SD-WAN) is the key factor driving this evolution and bringing along with it many transformational
changes. SD-WAN has enabled several new WAN uses cases, such as enabling reliable, secure and
high performance support of software-as-a-service (SaaS), cloud compute, cloud storage, cloud
security and the ability to use non-deterministic Internet services to provide business-class transport.
The traditional WAN architecture was ill equipped to support these new use cases.
As is usually the case with an emerging market, the first entrants into the SD-WAN space were
start-ups. However, given the ability of SD-WAN to support both traditional and emerging WAN
use cases, the market has recently been flooded with a range of vendors, solutions and technologies
offering varying types of SD-WAN solutions.
While having differing types of solutions provided by numerous suppliers is potentially beneficial,
