With nearly everyone’s professional and personal lives dependent upon a healthy ecosystem of data centers, it is only natural that data centers are now targeted by thieves, spies and others maliciously seeking to cause damage or to steal the information contained within a data center.

"Security analysts have a tougher job than ever. New vulnerabilities and security attacks used to be a monthly occurrence, but now they make the headlines almost every day. It’s become much more difficult to effectively monitor and protect all the data passing through your systems. Automated attacks from bad bots that mimic human behavior have raised the stakes, allowing criminals to have machines do the work for them.
Not only that, these bots leave an overwhelming number of alert bells, false positives, and inherent stress in their wake for security practitioners to sift through. Today, you really need a significant edge when combating automated threats launched from all parts of the world.
Where to start? With spending less time investigating all that noise in your logs."

The IT pendulum is swinging to distributed computing environments, network perimeters are dissolving, and
compute is being distributed across various parts of organizations’ infrastructure—including, at times, their extended
ecosystem. As a result, organizations need to ensure the appropriate levels of visibility and security at these remote
locations, without dramatically increasing staff or tools. They need to invest in solutions that can scale to provide
increased coverage and visibility, but that also ensure efficient use of resources. By implementing a common
distributed data services layer as part of a comprehensive security operations and analytics platform architecture
(SOAPA) and network operations architecture, organizations can reduce costs, mitigate risks, and improve operational

Network performance and security are vital
elements of any business. Organisations are
increasingly adopting virtualisation and cloud
technologies to boost productivity, cost savings
and market reach.
With the added complexity of distributed
network architectures, full visibility is necessary
to ensure continued high performance and
security. Greater volumes of data, rapidlyevolving threats and stricter regulations have
forced organisations to deploy new categories
of security tools, e.g. Web Access Firewalls
(WAFs) or Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS).
Yet, simply adding more security tools may not
always be the most efficient solution.

Authentication is evolving from static one-time user action, to transparent and continuous ways of validating digital identities without imposing frustration on end users. Behavioral biometrics technologies invisibly and unobtrusively authenticate users by validating the manner in which they physically interact online. Behavioral biometrics technologies learn how individual users hold mobile devices in their hands and press their fingers on the touchscreen. On computers, the system learns how users type on keyboards and move their mouse and cursor. The BehavioSec solution gathers this behavioral data and analyzes it using advanced techniques, to ensure that the user is who you expect them to be.

In this case study, a large enterprise with an increasing amount
of off-site work from both work-related travel and a fast-growing
remote workforce, is faced with a unique challenge to ensure
their data security is scalable and impenetrable. Their data access
policies rely on physical access management provided at the
company offices and do not always provide off-site employees
with the ability to complete work-critical tasks. Legacy security
solutions only add burden to productivity, sometimes causing
employees to ignore security protocols in order to simply
complete their work. Upon evaluating security vendors for a
frictionless solution, they selected BehavioSec for its enterprise-grade capabilities with on-premise deployment and integration
with existing legacy risk management systems.
"The average company uses more than 50 security vendors: firewalls, web proxies, SIEM, appliances, intelligence - and the list goes on. Do you have more security tools than you can handle? There’s an easier way to make the most of your existing investments.
We'll share ways you can reduce security alerts and extend your security off network, anywhere users go, with Cisco Umbrella. Built with a bidirectional API, Cisco Umbrella easily integrates with the other systems in your stack, so you can extend protection from on-premises security appliances to devices and sites beyond your perimeter — and amplify investments you’ve already made.

Even after decades of industry and technology advancements, there still is no universal, integrated storage solution that can reduce risk, enable profitability, eliminate complexity and seamlessly integrate into the way businesses operate and manage data at scale? To reach these goals, there are capabilities that are required to achieve the optimum results at the lowest cost. These capabilities include availability, reliability, performance, density, manageability and application ecosystem integration? This paper outlines a better way to think about storing data at scale—solving these problems not only today, but well into the future?
Auch nach jahrzehntelangen Fortschritten in Industrie und Technik existiert immer noch keine universelle integrierte Storage-Lösung, die das Risiko verringern, die Profi tabilität sichern, die Komplexität beseitigen und sich nahtlos in die Betriebs- und Verwaltungsprozesse der Unternehmen für Daten in großem Maßstab einfügen können.
Zur Erreichung dieser Ziele gibt es Fähigkeiten, um optimale Ergebnisse zu möglichst niedrigen Kosten zu erreichen. Diese Fähigkeiten umfassen Verfügbarkeit, Zuverlässigkeit, Performance, Datendichte, Managementfähigkeit und Integration in Anwendungs-Ökosysteme.
Das vorliegende White Paper skizziert ein besseres Konzept für die Speicherung von Daten in großem Maßstab, so dass diese Probleme nicht nur heute, sondern auch in Zukunft gelöst werden.
A new NPR/Marist poll reveals that one in five jobs in the U.S. is held by a worker under contract. In fact, independent contractors could make up half of the entire workforce in the U.S. within the next decade.
More and more organizations have begun to see contractors and suppliers as valuable business partners intrinsic to driving service and product innovation. For many companies, especially those operating in highly regulated industries, managing compliance in-house for all of these suppliers can be burdensome.
But the cost of non-compliance — in the form of penalties, fines, productivity losses, settlement costs, and inefficiencies — is ruinous.
This white paper will discuss:
• The hidden costs of ignoring contractor management
• Best practices towards holistic compliance and governance
• The cost of different contractor management systems
• How to get the highest ROI in your supply chain
In today’s digital world, technologies such as cloud have become commonplace to take digital transformation projects to the next level. But while cloud is critical to business transformation success, Australian IT decision-makers (ITDMs) still feel that the C-suite does not understand the time and complexity of the journey.
This paper explores:
• Insights on challenges faced by Australian ITDMs when rolling out cloud projects
• The role of the ITDM today
• Key blockages IT stakeholders encounter when driving digital change, and;
• What they need from the business and wider technology ecosystem to navigate the risks associated with starting a cloud project or moving to a full cloud-first model.

Professional buyers increasingly expect a hassle-free, fully digital experience with visibility into pricing. Electrical products in particular are a major growth area for Amazon Business and other digital entrants, some of whom undercut the market with bottom-barrel prices. It can be scary out there, but only if you don’t have a plan. This whitepaper provides a playbook for:
• Reimagining how you tackle pricing challenges
• Dynamically responding to cost changes
• Embracing the right technology
• Going the extra mile with services that Amazon can’t match
If you’re making the leap to eCommerce or bolstering an existing online presence to meet customer expectations, pricing cannot be an afterthought. In digital channels, pricing rigor - including effectively maintaining market-aligned customer-specific and system prices and setting up relevant price profiles - becomes even more important as it is more transparent to customers. Give your buyers what they want without sacrificing the marg
Omnichannel is one of those words everyone
uses, but few use correctly. It’s not another word for
multichannel. It’s a different state of existence.
In our experience, multichannel is the ability to interact
with customers across many different channels, but
not necessarily in a cohesive fashion. As new channels
become available, they are “bolted on” to existing
customer experience infrastructure such as CRM
or customer support systems. Too frequently, the
management of these channels becomes siloed (web
versus in-store sales, for example). The effect of this from
the customer experience standpoint can be disjointed
and jarring. For example, the resolution of an issue
following a customer conversation with an associate
in the contact center may not be reflected when the
customer goes online or into a store.
Yet the ability to offer multichannel service experience is
table stakes for today’s business. If you’re not available in
the channels where customers want you to be, you cease
