The purpose of IT backup and recovery systems is to avoid data loss and recover
quickly, thereby minimizing downtime costs. Traditional storage-centric data protection
architectures such as Purpose Built Backup Appliances (PBBAs), and the conventional
backup and restore processing supporting them, are prone to failure on recovery. This
is because the processes, both automated and manual, are too numerous, too complex,
and too difficult to test adequately. In turn this leads to unacceptable levels of failure for
today’s mission critical applications, and a poor foundation for digital transformation
Governments are taking notice. Heightened regulatory compliance requirements have
implications for data recovery processes and are an unwelcome but timely catalyst for
companies to get their recovery houses in order. Onerous malware, such as
ransomware and other cyber attacks increase the imperative for organizations to have
highly granular recovery mechanisms in place that allow

Businesses face greater uncertainty than ever. Market conditions, customer desires, competitive landscapes, and regulatory constraints change by the minute. So business success is increasingly contingent on predictive intelligence and hyperagile responsiveness to relentlessly evolving demands. This uncertainty has significant implications for the data center — especially as business becomes pervasively digital. IT has to support business agility by being more agile itself. It has to be able to add services, scale capacity up and down as needed, and nimbly remap itself to changes in organizational structure.
Today’s banks are facing enormous pressures that include regulatory requirements, hefty penalties, increasing customer service demands, and ferocious competition from other financial institutions rapidly embracing customer-centric technology. Despite these challenges, banks can’t afford to scale down any efforts to ensure the highest standards of customer service
New market entrants are shifting the way the financial sector operates, new business models are changing customer expectations, and ever-changing client demographics are forcing businesses to adapt the way they work.
As we move into a decade of artificial intelligence (AI) and digital innovation, huge opportunities are opening up for the financial sector to combat these changes. But with this comes new challenges, and exponential increases in available information must be accompanied by smart tools and processes to make sense of it, ensure regulatory compliance, and add real value to clients.

Disaster recovery (DR) and long-term retention of data, for security as well as regulatory compliance, can be very challenging for mid-sized organizations. Keeping a secondary site up for DR can get very expensive and dealing with tape can be slow and costly. As a result, many mid-sized organizations are looking to the efficiencies of the cloud, such as scale, elasticity, agility, and lower initial storage costs, to expand their data protection environments. Check out this easy-to-absorb infographic to learn how to achieve powerful, converged, easy to deploy and manage, cloud-ready data protection.
The use of SSL encryption for all enterprise Internet traffic is growing steadily. Applications that make use of SSL – such as SharePoint, Exchange, WebEx, Salesforce.com and Google Apps – are commonplace. Even email applications like Gmail, Yahoo, and Zimbra are being used in workplace environments as hosted email or BYOD apps.
It’s clear that organizations now need complete visibility into the SSL traffic coming across the WAN. They need the ability to preserve complete network and web histories from encrypted network and web traffic for compliance, regulatory and logging requirements. Blue Coat has solutions today to address the SSL dilemma.
Organizations handling transactions involving credit or debit cards are facing increasing pressure to meet regulatory compliance mandates. In particular, they must comply with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) version 3, which went into effect in January of 2015.
As the food industry races to comply with the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), manufacturers are working to adopt more robust track and trace processes. A critical component to achieving compliance is the integration of automated data capture solutions throughout all stages of food production—from farm to table. This whitepaper examines technology considerations food manufacturers should weigh when implementing these systems, along with how to tackle the subsequent challenges that are sure to arise. Once the U.S. food industry understands how mobile solutions can enable track & traceability, manufacturers will be equipped with an efficient solution that not only helps to achieve regulatory compliance, but also improves overall business efficiencies.
The US healthcare industry has historically lagged behind others in the maturity of security capabilities, only recently catching up on data security and privacy in response to HIPAA. But there is a wide range of other mounting risks unique to healthcare that S&R pros in healthcare can’t ignore — greater regulatory pressure, increasing targeted attacks, the frightening uncertainty of IoT security, and global economic pressures. This report outlines the most important security capabilities for security leaders in this sector to implement in the face of these challenges.
With companies embracing mobility to maintain competitive advantage in the digital era, information security threats have increased exponentially. Userfriendly technologies such as mobile devices, mobile apps, and cloud storage are often hacker-friendly too, creating opportunities for cybercriminals to covertly infiltrate company data. This opens the door to data loss, reputational damage, loss of proprietary information – not to mention the associated regulatory penalties and potential legal fees. IT bears the brunt of responsibility for information security, yet according to Forrester, internal incidents top the list of security breach causes in 2014.
IT leaders today are reinventing their infrastructure to support a mobile workforce and a complex array of connected devices. Against this backdrop of mobility and connectivity, Healthcare IT is tasked with meeting compliance challenges in an intricate and transformational regulatory environment. With a host of new data protection regulations and increasingly high settlement fees for data breaches, data security has never been more important to Healthcare organizations

Business leaders will face a stark choice: Either digitally reinvent their enterprises, or watch as their businesses decompose around them. Successful Digital Reinvention will involve a fundamental reimagining of how an organization operates and how it engages with its environment.
Operational resilience is high on the regulatory agenda in the UK. A joint discussion paper in 2018 took a broader view of operational resilience to cover all risks to the provision of critical business services with a greater emphasis on recovery and response when incidents occur. Regulators now place the same importance on operational resilience as on financial resilience. This represents a fundamental shift that companies are at different stages of addressing. Based on discussions with clients and regulators here are ten conversations to help guide you through this new landscape.
