Equipping staff with the right tools can enhance productivity, motivation and staff retention. Highly secure mobile email and data applications help mobile workers stay in touch and up-to-date with a wide range of business issues. Extending that streamlined anytime, anywhere access to mobile voice applications is the next frontier in worker empowerment.
Data—dynamic, in demand and distributed—is challenging to
secure. But you need to protect sensitive data, whether it’s stored
on-premises, off-site, or in big-data, private- or hybrid-cloud
environments. Protecting sensitive data can take many forms, but
nearly any organization needs to keep its data accessible, protect
data from loss or compromise, and comply with a raft of regulations
and mandates. These can include the Payment Card Industry Data
Security Standard (PCI DSS), the Health Insurance Portability and
Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) and the European Union (EU)
General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Even in the cloud, where
you may have less immediate control, you must still control your
sensitive data—and compliance mandates still apply.
According to Forrester, organizations spent $1.5 trillion globally managing IT last year. 75% of this was spent on silos, legacy systems that still don't get answers to the most important questions: troubleshooting outages, investigating security incidents, and demonstrating compliance. Learn about the innovative software product forward-thinking organizations are using to dramatically improve their productivity and change the way they manage and secure IT.
HIPAA is the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act. It’s the legislation that makes sure your protected health information (PHI) is kept private and kept secure. It covers how healthcare providers and associated businesses should keep handle your data and protect your health information, and provides the standards needed to ensure PHI data stored, handled, and accessed correctly at all times.

Is your company’s intranet portal available to employees on the go? Do employees need mobile access to your back-office systems while ensuring data on mobile devices is secure? Do users want to use their own mobile devices to access corporate data and applications? Download the datasheet to get in depth approaches to addressing these challenges.
Cloud datacenter security is becoming imperative in the new age of malware attacks. To stay competitive and secure, organizations are turning to smart networking in an effort to close the datacenter security gap. The combination of VMware NSX, AirWatch Tunnel and Horizon View helps close this gap and simplifies security management for IT professionals. With the upcoming prevalence of authentication and identity management in an organization’s infrastructure, the need to delegate and define network access continues to highlight the important role of hybrid cloud security that addresses all end-user devices.

As the backbone of web security, secure sockets layer (SSL) technology is a must for securing sensitive data passing over the Internet — whether that's e-commerce traffic, remote access to internal servers, or other secure communications. Usually, one SSL certificate secures just one domain name or URL; however, some common situations are better handled with a type of certificate that allows multiple domains to be secured with just one certificate. Read this guide to learn about typical situations where multiple domain certificates are the ideal solution, how multiple domain certificates work, and how to select the right multi-domain certificate for your needs.
Companies worldwide are embracing private clouds, not only because they support new, highly efficient and secure data solutions, but also to drive new competitive organizational strategies. This white paper provides an assessment of the business value of implementing IBM SmartCloud Entry for Power Systems versus comparable private cloud solutions from VMware on Intel. It discusses the benefits of private cloud solutions, including reduced labor and hardware/software costs, ease of implementation and adoption, scalability, organizational flexibility, security, improved efficiency, as well as allocation of and access to IT resources.
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.
The shift to the cloud is changing how companies think about their IT infrastructure and what they must do to manage it. The on-demand applications and services that comprise a cloud services network enable companies to rapidly deploy powerful capabilities to a broad set of users at very low costs. However, they also introduce challenges associated with securing and controlling users and access, simplifying adoption and scaling of these applications, and providing insight into utilization to ensure the business is optimizing its cloud investments. Okta’s on-demand identity management service enables companies to address these challenges head-on by being designed from the ground up as a scalable, secure, multi-tenant service that protects your data through centralized access control. This whitepaper details Okta’s focus on security and reliability, how Okta enhances security and how Okta itself stays secure.
This white paper examines how some of the ways organizations
use big data make their infrastructures vulnerable to attack. It
presents recommended best practices organizations can adopt
to help make their infrastructures and operations more secure.
And it discusses how adding advanced security software solutions
from IBM to their big-data environment can fill gaps that
big-data platforms by themselves do not address. It describes
how IBM® Security Guardium®, an end-to- end solution for
regulatory compliance and comprehensive data security, supports
entitlement reporting; user-access and activity monitoring;
advanced risk analytics and real-time threat detection analytics;
alerting, blocking, encryption and other data protection capabilities,
as well as automated compliance workflows and reporting
capabilities, to stop threats.
