Big Data and analytics workloads represent a new frontier for organizations. Data is being collected from sources that did not exist 10 years ago. Mobile phone data, machine-generated data, and website interaction data are all being collected and analyzed. In addition, as IT budgets are already under pressure, Big Data footprints are getting larger and posing a huge storage challenge. This paper provides information on the issues that Big Data applications pose for storage systems and how choosing the correct storage infrastructure can streamline and consolidate Big Data and analytics applications without breaking the bank.
DDoS attacks are the primary threat to the availability of your network. In 2014, the number of DDoS attacks continues its trend upward in both size and complexity. Today, attacks topping 100Gbps have become common. So have complex threats such as application-layer attacks against DNS and encrypted Web services. Taxing security teams even more is the rise in multi vector attacks which target applications, existing stateful infrastructure like Firewalls and IPS devices and upstream connectivity, all in a single sustained attack.
Web applications are often the most vulnerable part of a company’s infrastructure and yet are typically given direct paths to the internet, thus leaving these vulnerabilities exposed. IBM commissioned Tolly to evaluate IBM Security Access Manager for its Web protection effectiveness and performance as well as its identity federation, risk management and mobile one-time password capabilities. Tolly found that IBM Security Access Manager provided effective, high-performance threat protection while conveniently providing identity federation features and flexible risk-based access options.

Today, defending your organization’s web properties means more than just protecting a handful of enterprise web applications from advanced malware. Learn more on the complexity and challenges of defending against today’s modern threats and discover how Citrix NetScaler application delivery controller (ADC) is an ideal defense solution.
"Is your mobile micro app concealing a complex web property?
The mobile web doesn’t just exist in your smartphone or tablet’s browser—there’s also an invisible but critical layer at the back end that powers mobile app services from content delivery to networking and collaboration. A micro app on a mobile device typically serves as the entry point to a web property. The combination of Citrix XenMobile and Citrix NetScaler offers enterprises an ideal solution that not only incorporates a comprehensive set of MDM and MAM features but also complements them with a market-leading, cloud-ready suite of capabilities for optimizing mobile web app performance, availability and security."
We’ve all come to expect the same security, performance and reliability from our mobile applications as we do with native applications. But these apps don’t just run on our mobile devices. They are powered by a variety of backend infrastructure – a hidden but important layer of application components and network devices. NetScaler helps this invisible layer of infrastructure to perform and communicate, improving security as well as quality of service. And by integrating with XenMobile, you can offer greater support and a better experience for mobile users. Learn more about delivering improved security, reliability and performance through mobile environments by reading our full report, Defend Hidden Mobile Web Properties (link).
SSL certificates have moved beyond the ‘Buy’ page. They are embedded in your business. For example,
they protect remote communications via webmail, chat and IM. Browser-to-server communications
for cloud-based services require SSL certificates to protect confidential information. In addition, SSL
certificates are used to secure server-to-server communications for applications and data exchange.
In fact, SSL Certificates are a business-critical part of your IT infrastructure. However, managing
individual certificates in a large organization is complicated by multiple locations, many servers,
different business units, and rapidly growing Web-based services.
