Security has become top of mind for CIOs, and CEOs. Encryption at rest is a piece of the solution, but not a big piece. Encryption over the network is another piece, but only a small piece. These and other pieces do not fit together well; they need to unencrypt and reencrypt the data when they move through the layers, leaving clear versions that create complex operational issues to monitor and detect intrusion.
Larger-scale high-value applications requiring high security often use Oracle middleware, including Java and Oracle database. Traditional security models give the data to the processors to encrypt and unencrypt, often many times. The overhead is large, and as a result encryption is used sparingly on only a few applications. The risk to enterprises is that they may have created an illusion of security, which in reality is ripe for exploitation.
The modern best-practice security model is an end-to-end encryption architecture. The application deploys application-led encryption s

Enterprises often accord the lowest priority for modernizing systems running business-critical applications, for fear of disruption of business as well as the time it would take for the new system to stabilize and come up to speed.

Your business may need to keep track of dozens of different initiatives—but that doesn’t mean you need dozens of separate storage solutions to get the job done. To reduce complexity, your business may consider storage solutions that can take care of multiple jobs at once without sacrificing performance. For example, if you operate a brick-and-mortar store and an online store, you should be able to retrieve customer data from both sources without compromising transactional database performance. The all-flash Dell EMC™ SC5020 storage array aims to be just such a solution.
Ihr Unternehmen muss womöglich Dutzende von Initiativen gleichzeitig im Auge behalten – das bedeutet aber nicht, dass Sie Dutzende von separaten Speicherlösungen benötigen, um diese Aufgabe zu bewältigen. Zur Reduzierung der Komplexität kann Ihr Unternehmen Speicherlösungen einsetzen, die mehrere Aufträge ohne Performanceverluste gleichzeitig verarbeiten können. Wenn Sie zum Beispiel ein Ladengeschäft und einen Onlineshop betreiben, sollten Sie Kundendaten aus beiden Quellen abrufen können, ohne dabei die Performance der transaktionalen Datenbank zu beeinträchtigen. Zu diesem Zweck wurde das All-Flash- Speicherarray Dell EMC™ SC5020 entwickelt.
There are a number of factors contributing to the growing popularity of streaming live events or offering content on demand, from anywhere, any time, on any device. Live streaming major sporting events such as the Superbowl or the Olympics is now a viable alternative to broadcast TV. And as Limelight’s 2017 State of Online Video report reveals, the average number of online viewing hours is almost six per week. However, as viewer expectations continue to rise, keeping audiences happy and engaged isn’t easy.
In this white paper we discuss current trends and what to expect in 2018. We examine the role Content Delivery Networks (CDN) can play in optimizing the delivery of online video content at global scale, and the technologies available to ensure the lowest latency delivery possible.

SQL is a critical skill for business intelligence. From accessing to transforming to reporting on data, SQL gives you the power to get the job done. It can help you discover exactly how your company is performing, what your customers are doing, or how people have reacted to your marketing campaigns.
Unfortunately, while SQL can tell you what has happened, it can’t tell you what will happen. What if you have questions like:
• How valuable is a lead based on company attributes and their behavior on our website? • How much MRR will we generate in the next 30 days? • Which customers are likely to churn next month?

Organizations continue to adopt cloud computing at a rapid pace to benefit from increased efficiency, better scalability, and faster deployments.
As more workloads are shifting to the cloud, cybersecurity professionals remain concerned about security of
data, systems, and services in the cloud. To cope with new security challenges, security teams are forced to reassess their security posture and strategies as traditional security tools are often not suited for the challenges of dynamic, virtual and distributed cloud environments. This technology challenge is only exacerbated by the dramatic shortage of skilled cybersecurity professionals.
Cloud investment continues to grow
over 20% annually as organizations are
looking for faster time to deployment,
scalability, reduced maintenance, and
lower cost. But there is one aspect
of cloud that consistently worries IT
and security professionals – how to
achieve high levels of security in the
cloud. As cloud adoption increases, the
fears of unauthorized access, stolen
identities, data and privacy loss, and
confidentiality and compliance issues
are rising right along with it.

IT cybersecurity leaders are considering
in their move to the cloud.
It is no secret; security and compliance are at the top of the list of concerns tied to cloud adoption. According to a recent 2017 Cloud Security survey to over 350,000 members of the LinkedIn Information Security Community, IT pros have general concerns about security in the cloud (33 percent), in addition to data loss and leakage risks (26 percent) and legal and regulatory compliance (24 percent)1. The number of reported breaches in enterprise datacenter environments still far exceeds the reported exposure from cloud platforms, but as businesses start using public clouds to run their mission-critical workloads, the need for enterprise-grade security in the cloud will increase.
Public cloud environments require a centralized, consolidated platform for security that is built from the ground up for the cloud, and allows administrators to monitor and actively enforce security policies. The tools and techniques that worked to secure datacenter environments fail miserably in the cloud. Se
