In this white paper you will learn how data classification can be one of the most cost-effective methods for ensuring the value of data is maximized while still being used securely and how it can be a critical component to successfully govern information at an enterprise.
You’ve heard the stories: a large Internet company exposing all three billion of its customer accounts; a major hotel chain compromising five hundred million customer records; and one of the big-three credit reporting agencies exposing more than 143 million records, leading to a 25 percent loss in value and a $439 million hit. At the time, all of these companies had security mechanisms in place. They had trained professionals on the job. They had invested heavily in protection. But the reality is that no amount of investment in preventative technologies can fully eliminate the threat of savvy attackers, malicious insiders, or inadvertent victims of phishing. Breaches are rising, and so are their cost. In 2018, the average cost of a data breach rose 6.4 percent to $3.86 million, and the cost of a “mega breach,” those defined as losing 1 million to 50 million records, carried especially punishing price tags between $40 million and $350 million.2 Despite increasing investment in security

Data security is a top priority and a daunting challenge for most organizations. Costly data breaches are incresing in number and sophiscation, and a growing list of regulations mandate that personal data be protected. At the same time, security technologies must not impede user productivity by creating obstacles or slowing performance, otherwise users might disable or circumvent them. A robust security strategy that includes authentication, encryption and advanced malware prevention enables an organization to keep data safe while enabling the way people work. Dell has conceived and executed an innovative securtiy strategy that provides date protection and threat prevention across an extensive line of products.

While mobile threats are still largely mischiefware and have not yet broken the device’s security model but instead more focused on for-pay texting scams or stealing personal information, the dangers are still rife. This white paper from BlueCoat examines the mobile threat landscape and the behavioral patterns of mobile users that make them most vulnerable to data loss, malicious applications, fraud and other mobile threats.
All indicators are up when it comes to mobility: More devices, more users, more budget, and more applications. Business technology leaders must begin planning now for a security paradigm shift, one that will pull together disparate security policies into a single, user-centric, universal policy that can apply to whatever devices and apps employees use. This white paper from BlueCoat explores the new security challenges mobility trends are creating, and how security must change to meet them.
For decades, fear has dominated the discussion of cyber security. Every magazine article, presentation or blog about the topic seems to start the same way: trying to scare the living daylights out of you with horror stories, alarming statistics, and doomsday scenarios. The result is that most IT shops and security vendors think security is only about what you prevent. They think it’s about blocking, prohibiting, controlling, constraining, excluding, outlawing, and forbidding. Hence IT’s reputation as the “Department of No.”
There is no question that security attacks targeting your organization will continue to grow and evolve. The question is, how can you respond to malware and other risks without unnecessarily constraining your workforce? How can you get beyond the fear and anxiety that leads to excessive prohibition, prevention, blocking, and excluding – so that you can use security technology to both protect and empower people?
The answer is with a multi-layered defense – one that uses advanced security technologies and sophisticated operational practices in combination to cover the full spectrum of threat vectors. This solution brief explores the growing importance of multi-layered defense in today’s fast-changing web environment, and key considerations in implementing an effective multi-layered defense strategy.
Digital certificates have become vital to MDM/EMM, WiFi and VPN access for mobile-device-to-enterprise authentication. But most struggle to identify who has access, audit that access, and terminate access if needed. IT teams need a central certificate security platform that delivers issuance and distribution, visibility, and policy enforcement, as well as the control needed to terminate access.
We rely on cryptographic keys and digital certificates for encryption and authentication. But certificates can, and do, expire, creating costly outages. Organizations need visibility, continuous surveillance, policy enforcement, and automation to eliminate outages caused by expired certificates and secure their keys and certificates.

Employee assistance programs (EAPs) are moving beyond the traditional idea of being a work-based intervention program solely aimed at resolving employees’ personal problems.
Nowadays, EAPs are preventative by nature. They provide important work life resources like counselling, coaching, guidance, and financial and legal support for employees and family members. The focus has expanded from personal problems to overall well-being.
Customers have grown accustomed to high speeds and reliable connectivity. One second of network delay when accessing website, mobile app, or application service can increase your bounce rate and even decrease your customer’s trust in your brand.
The typical business pain points per the above scenario are always like:
Latency – While, latency problems caused by geographic distance are impossible to solve on the public Internet;
Availability – Packet loss and complaints from customers can prevent you from increasing your user base;
Cost - The growth of your user base and your business needs both outpace your IT budget.
Security - Connections over the public Internet are vulnerable to DDoS attacks and other threats.

Consistency and customer experience are key to quality and profitability in retail. Manual reporting processes can be unwieldy and time-consuming, but bringing together all compliance procedures under one digital platform means fast, consistent and easy-to-access performance data.
Using real-time insights into best practice improves the reporting of quality control, stock loss prevention, inspection processes, logistics and more – saving time, increasing efficiency and boosting customer satisfaction. Benefits include better branding through monitoring rollouts with uploaded photos and videos, protection against shrinkage through improved inspection processes and audits, and clearer visibility of issues which means a speedier response.

The continual changes in the business climate constantly challenge companies to find more effective business practices. However, common budgeting limitations are preventing companies from moving forward; they have become so universal and accepted in the marketplace that it is becoming more difficult to move ahead and progress the business. Flexibility, accuracy and control over the budgeting process are three prominent factors slowing this progression.

Prophix and IMA hosted a webcast, titled “Overcoming Barriers to Implement CPM Methods”, featuring subject matter expert Gary Cokins, the CEO, at Analytics-Based Performance Management. The adoption rate of business analytics and corporate performance management (CPM) methods has been slowed by various barriers. Gary Cokins outlines the causes of this lag, as well as lessons learned about how to overcome obstacles, and obtain buy-in to manage and improve performance. He describes techniques such as strategy maps, balanced scorecards with key performance indicators (KPIs), channel and customer profitability reporting, and driver-based budgeting that can prevent failure when implementing CPM methods.
