Most organizations have a dirty little secret: they are relying on user and password-based authentication to protect sensitive internal applications. With 81% of data breaches involving weak or stolen credentials1, applications that use single-factor authentication are an easy target for attack. Unfortunately, updating internal cloud applications—as well as legacy and custom applications—to support multi-factor authentication can be an IT headache for many organizations.
Okta and Palo Alto Networks have collaborated to make rolling out multi-factor authentication a snap. Join Daniel Lu, Product Marketing Manager at Okta and Kasey Cross, Sr. Product Marketing Manager at Palo Alto Networks, to learn:
>The latest trends in credential-based attacks
>Why every sensitive cloud application needs multi-factor authentication
>How to enforce network-level multi-factor authentication without touching your apps using Palo Alto Networks and Okta
Cloud adoption promises the benefit of increased flexibility and significant cost savings.

The management of financial data in an organization is of paramount importance. Reporting, evaluating ROI, making adjustments across the business, and increasing revenue depend on good, accessible financial data that can be updated and integrated across systems and software.
For these reasons, many organizations have turned to master data management (MDM) software in the effort to better store, access, search, retrieve, and analyze their financial data. These MDM solutions are able to collect data within a single unified, fully integrated, user-friendly platform. However, in order to be most effective, MDM applications must also have capabilities in data relationship management (DRM). DRM software is able to describe and enforce the relationships between data, no matter where it's located within an organization, to provide a holistic and consistent solution.

“One of the most popular MDM solution is Oracle Hyperion Data Relationship Management. Oracle DRM is used to resolve the challenges across the people, processes, and tools that go into the tasks of data management. Although Oracle DRM is a powerful software, it nevertheless presents challenges for organizations seeking to integrate it with other Oracle applications such as PeopleSoft Financials – DRM is unable to automatically push updates made within its system to PeopleSoft. As a result, changes in DRM to cost centers, project centers, trees, and hierarchies must be manually updated in PeopleSoft Financials – a tedious process that can take hours every day. The good news is that these challenges can be easily addressed with the support of partners such as Datavail.
When Barracuda first engaged with Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity in 2007, enterprises were more concerned about the unauthorized use of Skype, other P2P applications and instant messaging. Although the need for application control and awareness remains, enterprise concerns are shifting to securing enterprise applications hosted in private and public clouds, protecting east-west data center traffic and preventing unwanted traffic and malware on the corporate network.
As organizations develop next-generation applications for the digital era, many are using cognitive computing ushered in by IBM Watson® technology. Cognitive applications can learn and react to customer preferences, and then use that information to support capabilities such as confidence-weighted outcomes with data transparency, systematic learning and natural language processing.
Data is the lifeblood of business. And in the era of digital business,
the organizations that utilize data most effectively are also the most
successful. Whether structured, unstructured or semi-structured,
rapidly increasing data quantities must be brought into organizations,
stored and put to work to enable business strategies. Data integration
tools play a critical role in extracting data from a variety of sources and
making it available for enterprise applications, business intelligence
(BI), machine learning (ML) and other purposes. Many organization
seek to enhance the value of data for line-of-business managers by
enabling self-service access. This is increasingly important as large
volumes of unstructured data from Internet-of-Things (IOT) devices
are presenting organizations with opportunities for game-changing
insights from big data analytics. A new survey of 369 IT professionals,
from managers to directors and VPs of IT, by BizTechInsights on
behalf of IBM reveals the challe
Over the past few years, business leaders have been the primary drivers of technology change, including making decisions to adopt new applications in the cloud, mandate a cloud-first strategy, offer new capabilities with an API-first strategy, and provide new applications to end users on mobile first.
There are significant benefits to these cloud decisions because they decrease time to value, lower costs, and make it easier for organizations to experiment and innovate. But there are consequences as well, chiefly in the complexity of learning how to integrate applications and exchange data across a decentralized architecture that is largely driven by autonomous development decisions.
This IDC White Paper answers the following questions about the need for hybrid integration:
How are changes in business strategy and technology adoption requiring changes in how organizations approach integration?
What are the major events that trigger integration adaptation?
How are the roles involve

Une nouvelle réalité économique:
La fonction ressources humaines connaît actuellement une mutation profonde et nécessaire. La mondialisation, l'instabilité économique, l'évolution des technologies et la concurrence pour le recrutement des talents constituent de nouveaux challenges pour les dirigeants et les directions des ressources humaines (DRH).
A l'évidence, les anciennes pratiques ne sont plus adaptées à cette nouvelle économie mondialisée. Les RH doivent se réinventer. C'est une occasion unique pour les DRH de ré-imaginer le rôle de la fonction RH et de créer une valeur ajoutée durable pour leurs entreprises, leurs collaborateurs et leurs communautés.
Dans un contexte économique tourmenté, l'adoption des technologies Cloud, notamment les applications SaaS (Software as a Service), est une tendance de fond. Cette démarche permet de réduire les coûts, d'accélérer la mutation des entreprises et de créer plus de valeur.
Le Cloud Computing fait le buzz. Et c’est justifié. En réalité, la plupart des entreprises ont déjà intégré certains services Cloud dans leur infrastructure informatique. Les logiciels sur site deviennent obsolètes et les solutions hybrides sont limitées. Les applications Cloud, quant à elles, offrent de nouvelles manières pour déployer des solutions innovantes. Ces solutions sont aussi pratiques que simples à utiliser et à gérer. Aujourd’hui, le Cloud devient le socle de l’infrastructure sur lequel les entreprises innovantes s'appuient pour développer leurs activités.
Actuellement, le lieu de travail et l'employé connaissent de
profonds changements. Les entreprises ont compris que
pour relever ces challenges et rester compétitives, elles
doivent changer la façon dont elles gèrent leur ressource la
plus précieuse : leurs employés.
Mais leur tâche est rendue particulièrement difficile
par les outils obsolètes et rigides qui, du moins jusqu'à
maintenant, étaient utilisés pour gérer la main d'œuvre :
les systèmes sur support papier et formulaire, les outils de
bureautique (tableurs et documents Word), ainsi que les
applications logicielles ERP à grande échelle. Les services
RH sont particulièrement surchargés. Ils passent en effet
beaucoup trop de temps sur les tâches administratives et de
conformité au détriment du recrutement et de la fidélisation

Asian ICT infrastructure investment is exploding as businesses review and modernise their data-centre architectures to keep up with the service demands of a growing and increasingly sophisticated population.
Demand for cloud services, particularly to support big-data analytics initiatives, is driving this trend. Frost & Sullivan, for example, believes the Asia-Pacific cloud computing market will grow at 28.4 percent annually through 2022. Despite this growth, many businesses are also rapidly realising that public cloud is not the best solution for every need as they do not always offer the same level of visibility, performance, and control as on-premises infrastructure.This reality is pushing many companies towards the middle ground of hybrid IT, in which applications and infrastructure are distributed across public cloud and self-managed data centre infrastructure. Read about Medical company Mutoh and how it took advantage of the latest technology.
The cloud — at one point it was a revolution in the workplace. But the cloud is no longer a trend or a movement. It’s now so integrated into IT and infrastructures that, for many companies, it’s simply another part of the business. The availability of mobile devices and cloud services has redefined not only the way we work, but where we work.
Critical infrastructures, applications, and massive amounts of sensitive data are now stored in the cloud, leaving companies at risk of damage if cloud accounts are compromised.
With the cloud fast becoming the new normal, network security solutions need to adapt.
Download this ebook to learn how Cisco Cloud Security helps you securely adopt and use the cloud, and better manage security for the way the world works today.
