No matter how advanced data centers may become, they remain in a perpetual state of change in order to meet the demands of virtualized environments. But with the advent of software-defined storage (SDS) architecture, capabilities associated with hyperconverged technologies (including compute, storage, and networking), help data centers meet virtualization requirements with less administrator intervention at webscale.

To compete in this new multi-channel environment, we’ve seen in this guide how retailers have to adopt new and innovative strategies to attract and retain customers. Big data technologies, specifically Hadoop, enable retailers to connect with customers through multiple channels at an entirely new level by harnessing the vast volumes of new data available today. Hadoop helps retailers store, transform, integrate and analyze a wide variety of online and offline customer data—POS transactions, e-commerce transactions, clickstream data, email, social media, sensor data and call center records—all in one central repository.

"Remote access is important and growing, but how secure is it? IDC Research surveyed more than 300 IT professionals to gain insight into the specific threats and challenges faced by providing access to employees and third parties.
Read this report to learn about:
-How secure remote access really is
-The complexity faced in implementing remote access
-What happens when companies don’t have an access security solution
-Why businesses must pivot from the common security mantra of “trust but verify” to “verify and never trust” in the new threat landscape
"Businesses continue to evolve as digital technologies reshape industries. The workforce is mobile, and speed and ef ciency are imperative, necessitating dynamic, cloud-based infrastructures and connectivity, as well as unhindered, secure application access — from anywhere, on any device, at any time. Leaders must remove hurdles to progress, but new business initiatives and processes increase the attack surface, potentially putting the company at risk.
The moats and castle approach is an antiquated, yet a common way, of protecting the enterprise network. This paper describes a new way to protect the enterprise which hides applications from the Internet, outside of the firewall, with zero open ports and a minimal attack surface.
IT complexity has rapidly grown with more applications, users, and infrastructure needed to service the enterprise. Traditional remote access models weren’t built for business models of today and are unable to keep up with the pace of change. Read this paper to understand how remote access can be redefined to remove the complexity, meet end-user expectation and mitigate network security risks.
"Traditional remote access technologies—like VPNs, proxies, and remote desktops—provide access in much the same way they did 20 years ago. However, new and growing business realities—like a growing mobile and distributed workforce—are forcing enterprises to take a different approach to address the complexity and security challenges that traditional access technologies present.

"High-profile cyber attacks seem to occur almost daily in recent years. Clearly security threats are persistent and growing. While many organizations have adopted a defense-in-depth strategy — utilizing anti-virus protection, firewalls, intruder prevention systems, sandboxing, and secure web gateways — most IT departments still fail to explicitly protect the Domain Name System (DNS). This oversight leaves a massive gap in network defenses.
But this infrastructure doesn’t have to be a vulnerability. Solutions that protect recursive DNS (rDNS) can serve as a simple and effective security control point for end users and devices on your network. Read this white paper to learn more about how rDNS is putting your enterprise at risk, why you need a security checkpoint at this infrastructural layer, how rDNS security solutio

With the constant drumbeat of news reports about security breaches, cyber security is hard to ignore. Organizations understand that they need comprehensive security solutions, yet significant gaps remain. Malicious actors have evolved their methods to leverage the vulnerabilities of the Domain Name System (DNS), and attacks that utilize this vector are increasing in number.
Cybercriminals are evolving. Increasingly, they are capitalizing on the open and unprotected nature of the Domain Name System (DNS) to launch damaging phishing, malware, and ransomware attacks. How are you proactively protecting your network and users from these targeted threats? Here are five things to ask yourself as you consider a DNS security solution for your company.
It’s likely not a matter of if, but when your company will fall prey to targeted attack involving malware, ransomware, data exfiltration, or phishing. In fact, 70% of organizations reported a security incident that negatively impacted their business in the past year. Learn more about the realities of cybercrime in today’s hyperconnected world.
The cyber threat landscape is dynamic and accelerating. The Domain Name System (DNS) is a vulnerability in many organizations’ defenses that malicious actors are increasingly exploiting. The following DNS best practices, when coupled with an enterprise threat protection service, will aid you in identifying, blocking, and mitigating targeted threats such as malware, phishing, ransomware, and data exfiltration.
"Existing security controls are outmatched — at best static and reactive. Current layers likely aren’t protecting you against all attack vectors, like the vulnerable back door that is recursive DNS. And security mechanisms that frustrate, impede, or disallow legitimate users, devices, or applications will have low adoption rates and/or will curtail productivity. Benign users may even circumvent these processes, further undermining your corporate security posture and creating more gaps in your defense-in- depth strategy.
One of the many use cases associated with a zero trust security strategy is protecting your network — and most importantly, your data — from malware. "
"A zero trust security and access model is the solution: Every machine, user, and server should be untrusted until proven otherwise. But how do you achieve zero trust?
Read this white paper authored by Akamai’s CTO, Charlie Gero, to learn how to transition to a perimeter-less world in an incredibly easy way, with steps including:
• The zero trust method of proof
• The vision behind Google BeyondCorpTM
• Analysis of application access vs. network access
• How to deploy user grouping methodology
• Guidance for application rollout stages 1-8"
Companies are pursuing digital transformation. The goal is to improve customer value, operate with greater efficiency and agility, and increase innovation. But as companies leverage new workflows, security has not kept pace, and cyber criminals are becoming more sophisticated. This white paper describes a security paradigm for today’s hostile environment: zero trust.
"Use this step-by-step guide from Akamai’s CTO, Charlie Gero, to build an inclusive and concrete zero trust architecture, intended to help enable safe application access in a cloud-native world. Easily transition to a perimeter-less environment with this prescriptive process, phasing applications in one at a time and
reducing your migration risk profile."
