Whether you are leveraging the cloud for software as a service (SaaS), infrastructure as a service (IaaS), or platform as a service (PaaS), cloud security is a mandatory cost of doing business. In June 2016, Gartner issued a press release identifying the top information security technologies and included cloud access security brokers (CASBs) at the top of that list. Protecting your data and IP in the cloud is not an option.
Knowing that an ROI for a CASB could be longer term, how do you quickly quantify the additional value a CASB provides so that it gets a high priority in your already stretched information security budget? This white paper helps you to build a business case by walking you through the cost considerations and payback of a CASB. It demonstrates that a CASB provides stronger cloud protection at a lower cost than traditional security processes and tools.
The shared responsibility model is spelled out in the terms of services document of every CSP from Microsoft to Amazon. However, it is arguably the least understood and most misconceived concept. Simply put, the shared responsibility model outlines the CSP’s responsibility to maintain a secure and continuously available service and enterprises’ responsibility to ensure secure use of the service. Why is such a concept so difficult to comprehend and open to varying interpretations? Is the difference between security of the service and secure use of the service so significant? Aren’t enterprises moving to the cloud so they don’t have to deal with these types of responsibilities?
This white paper examines the root cause behind the confusion, some unfortunate scenarios that resulted from the confusion, and how some enterprises are successfully addressing and embracing the shared responsibility model.
Organizations face onboarding risks of BYOS (Bring Your Own Service) as they hire new employees that bring their own cloud services into the work environment. Risks facing IT and security teams include protecting corporate data and defending against modern threats. While IT and Security teams want to adopt modern cloud applications and increase business agility, they also want to implement visibility and monitoring to protect corporate data and comply to security policies. This session will highlight how new methodologies available today enable organizations to discover sanctioned and un-sanctioned cloud services that are being used within their organization, and how they can apply consistent security policies across the public and private cloud to protect corporate data and conform to compliance policies.
Enterprise customers can take advantage of the many benefits provided by Amazon Web Services (AWS) to achieve business agility, cost savings, and high availability by running their SAP environments on the AWS Cloud.
Many Enterprise customers run SAP production workloads on AWS today; including those that run on NON-SAP DBs (Oracle, MS SQL, DB2) or on SAP DBs (SAP HANA, SAP ASE). To support the demand of high memory instances, AWS have disclosed their SAP HANA instance roadmap (8TB and 16TB in 2018) and just made 4TB x1e instances available. A few examples of how AWS helped SAP customers cut costs, improve performance and agility include BP reducing 1/3 of their SAP infrastructure cost, Zappos successfully migrating to SAP HANA on AWS in less than 48 hours and enabling a major Healthcare and Life Science company to run BW on HANA with 30% better performance vs. on premise.
This guide is intended for SAP customers and partners who want to learn about the benefits and options for running SAP solutions on AWS, or who want to know how to implement and operate their SAP environment effectively on AWS.
The latest IT tools and techniques can bring benefit to policy implementation in Government, as well as to administration and operations.
