In the financial services industry (FSI), high-performance compute infrastructure is not optional; it’s a prerequisite for survival. No other industry generates more data, and few face the combination of challenges that financial services does: a rapidly changing competitive landscape, a complex regulatory environment, tightening margin pressure, exponential data growth, and demanding performance service-level agreements (SLAs).
While the shift from disk to digital offers tremendous potential opportunities, it also presents a host
of new challenges for gaming companies. As the online channel grows increasingly complex and the pace
of innovation accelerates, many companies struggle to keep up. Not only are there websites and storefronts
to manage, but also real-time gaming servers, large software downloads, and live-streamed competitions and
events. Games are transforming from fixed, boxed products to dynamic, ongoing services – with frequently
updated content, in-game micro-transactions, virtual goods and social interactions. Mobile adds another
dimension to the trend, as consumers increasingly look to play on smart phones and tablets – or on multiple
screens across devices.
To successfully navigate this complex and changing landscape, gaming companies need an agile,
high- performance infrastructure that allows them to turn the Internet into a reliable and effective
online distribution channel. This requires f
The rapid rate of mobile adoption provides today’s users with nearly unlimited access to data and information anytime, anywhere. While “always on” users represent a tremendous opportunity for businesses to increase engagement, revenue, and customer loyalty, they also create unprecedented mobile delivery challenges. In this e-book, we will delve into these challenges and learn how to master them by optimizing for fast APIs, mobile apps, and mobile sites. But before we do that, let’s start our mobile story with some perspective: Approximately half of you reading this e-book will do so on mobile. That fact alone should be a compelling enough reason to keep reading, but in case it’s not, the following data illustrates the impact mobile growth has had on our technological landscape.
From stolen consumer data to sensitive data leaks, it seems that no one’s data has been safe in recent years. For numerous reasons, like misconfigured storage repositories and unpatched vulnerabilities, this trend is likely to continue. The integration of digital technology into all areas of business has resulted in more of our data being stored on computers and websites targeted by hackers, which has significantly increased the number of data breaches as well as organizations’ vulnerability to malware attacks. For example, the Equifax breach impacted 145 MM consumers, and with more employees working remotely on a wide range of devices, the threat landscape has expanded.
The meteoric rise of the public cloud has compounded this issue, as data security requires new knowledge and skill sets in short supply, often leading to misconfigured and insecure solutions. Companies need to adopt the approach that every piece of data in their possession, on-premises or in the cloud, must be encryp
There’s no denying the effect digital has on the retail industry.
$.56 of every $1 spent in physical stores is influenced by digital.
What’s more, three of the world’s top five retailers are internetfirst:
Amazon, Alibaba, and JD.com.
According to PricewaterhouseCoopers’ Total Retail 2017 report,
56% of global shoppers use Amazon. Of these, 28% say they shop
less often at retail stores because of Amazon. 18% say they shop
less on other retailers’ e-commerce sites because of Amazon. And
10% say they shop exclusively on Amazon.
Retailers need to find a way to compete in this changing retail
landscape. These five global trends can provide some guidance
on where retail is headed and how brands can thrive in this new
era of retail.

This whitepaper deals with the rise of mobility, BYOD and social networking, and how these trends have led cybercriminals to exploit vulnerabilities in browsers and mobile apps. For example, more than 30,000 mostly legitimate websites become infected with malware every day. From drive-by downloads to spearfishing to XML injection, web-borne threats represent a significant new risk for businesses. The report describes how to stay on top of this changing threat landscape and prevent damaging attacks with:
• 100% protection against known viruses
• Industry-leading URL filtering and IP protection via the world’s largest threat database
• Extended protection for smartphones and tablets
• Simplified web-based management

Without trust, no website or online service can succeed in the competitive online marketplace. This year has seen a spate of breaches that have targeted the systems of Certificate Authorities (CAs), the companies that prove websites and services are secure and safe to use. Some of these attacks have undermined the trusting relationship between users and even well-known online brands. The changing security landscape has demonstrated not all CAs are the same, and choosing the right CA is critical to running and maintaining a safe and trusted online business. This white paper looks at the role of CAs in web security, including what measures a CA can take to promote trust in its certificates and the criteria to consider when choosing the best CA for the job.
Online where the reputation and success of your business is often measured by the trust that your customers have in the security of your website, it is important to understand how you can maintain and build on that trust. To that end, SSL/TLS has been the key to trust on the Internet for more than a decade and will continue to be so when it comes to providing the highest levels of protection against evolving cyber security threats. And while, yes, the technology is sophisticated and leading edge, the goal is simple: to make the Internet safer to transact business—for you, your customers and everyone else with whom you interact online.
Please use this document as a reference to understand the threat landscape and understand how you can protect your company and your infrastructure.

Before organizations can address their bot challenges, they need the ability to detect the many types of bots interacting with their websites and web applications on a daily basis. Bots come in many shapes and sizes, ranging from simple scripts to sophisticated automation tools, and continuously evolve over time. As detection technologies improve, so too do the technologies available to bot operators as they update their bots to evade the latest detection mechanisms. When evaluating a bot management solution, organizations should consider its detection technologies and their effectiveness against the current and future bot landscape, while maintaining the lowest possible level of false positives and negatives.
