MuleSoft surveyed 802 IT decision makers (ITDMs) globally to assess how organizations of all sizes are executing on digital transformation initiatives, IT challenges and the role of APIs to meet business goals.

However, the survey found that IT teams are looking to APIs and reuse of existing applications, data and digital resources to speed up the pace of business.

Today, a range of diverse cyber-adversaries — including nation-states, cybercriminals, competitors, hacktivists, and insiders/contractors — pose financial, reputational and regulatory risk to industrial and critical infrastructure organizations.
The business impact can include costly production downtime, safety failures, and environmental release of hazardous materials, as well as theft of corporate secrets such as sensitive information about formulas and proprietary manufacturing processes.
The challenge is compounded as organizations adopt digitization initiatives and IT/OT convergence to support the business — removing any “air-gaps” that may have existed in the past.

Enterprise’s are increasingly under threat from sophisticated attacks. In fact, research has found that threats dwell in a customer’s environment an average of 190 days1. These Advanced Persistent Threats use stealthy techniques to evade detection and bypass traditional security defenses. Once an advanced attack gains access to a customer environment the attacker has many tools to evade detection and begin to exploit valuable resources and data. Security teams face multiple challenges when attempting to detect and fully expose the extent of an advanced attack including manual searches through large and disparate data sources, lack of visibility into critical control points, alert fatigue from false positives, and difficulty identifying and fixing impacted endpoints.

Security teams face sophisticated attacks that ‘hide in plain sight’ and often dwell in customer environments as long as 190 days1. And attackers increasingly employ stealthy techniques to move freely within a customer environment like using stolen credentials to masquerade as legitimate users. There has been a marginal decline in zero-day discoveries and an increase in ‘living off the land’ tactics that don’t rely on the traditional combination of vulnerabilities followed by malware. These tactics are more difficult to detect since they make use of legitimate tools.

SaaS has fundamentally changed security requirements. We used to just go into work, and everything—corporate applications, sensitive customer data, employee health records, etc.—was within the “safe” four walls of the corporate network behind a firewall.
Now employees work remotely and use mobile devices, including unmanaged, personal devices. They access SaaS apps that live in the cloud without any sort of firewall that IT can use to monitor and manage access. Prominent examples include Salesforce.com, Google Apps, Office 365, Box, and many others.
As employees use these SaaS apps, they are creating proprietary company data, often confidential in nature, that exists outside the control of IT, creating new challenges for security teams.
In this new world, IT needs to track sensitive corporate data in third-party SaaS apps, and ensure that only the right people have the right level of access to it. In this whitepaper, we’ll explain ten steps on how to do that

Trends indicate that every company should embrace big data and analytics – there’s clearly incredible opportunity for enterprises to derive value from data. But not all companies are clamoring to jump on board with building teams and defining initiatives. The reality is enterprises are analyzing only 0.5% of their data, according to recent study by MIT Technology Review. What’s holding these companies back? This paper will cover the categories of risk and some of the constraints at play, as well as five recommendations to managing and mitigating that risk.

Once upon a time, several generations ago (in technology years), IT departments were internal departments, focused on maintaining infrastructure and services within the company. Some companies may have had external-facing services, particularly web services, but this was still generally a narrow and restricted area. IT wasn’t a revenue-generating or strategic department; it was a supporting environment viewed as a cost center.
One of the outcomes of an infrastructure-focused environment is that developers lost a sense of what their code was doing. Release cycles were long, and changes were slow. A developer would work on something and throw the code into testing or operations, and it would be released months later. Because of that long lead time, engineers lost the joy of being a developer—of creating something and seeing it work in real life.
One of the great, powerful changes with digital transformation and related cultural and technology changes like DevOps is that it reintroduce
