When a company sells services to a consumer audience primarily through a Web user interface (UI), that Web UI had better be online and available, all the time, especially if you are an airline. Such is the real-world scenario that faces Chris Skretowski, Linux Specialist at Devon, United Kingdom-based Flybe, Europe's largest regional airline.
Despite being a relatively small IT function, it powers a regional airline with over 1,700 employees and 55 aircraft, and the company has big ambitions, driven top down by a new CEO who believes that technology adoption and use can make a real difference in the company's bottom line. Having a board that is supportive of IT as a strategic business driver means there is lots of open air ahead for Skretowski, who is responsible for all the Linux infrastructure that front ends the company's missioncritical Web presence.
Flybe was one of the 21 companies that were interviewed for quantitative results on their operations as part of an IDC ROI analys

Cisco and Amazon Web Services (AWS) believe not only in making it simple to connect to the cloud, but also to protect your cloud services. Security is not just an on-premises or a cloud thing. It’s every-“thing” and everywhere. Gaining pervasive security means you need visibility across your entire IT environment to help you effectively identify and mitigate security threats.
Cisco Stealthwatch Cloud provides scalable visibility and delivers secure network behavioral analysis across on-premises and AWS environments to help identify anomalous activity that could indicate a security threat. This self-learning security solution continually refines its behavioral models as it monitors your environment, ultimately improving its functionality and reducing the costs required for manual security checks and updates.

DNS Speed and reliability are fundamental to the performance of your website and essential to the growth of your business. In order to overcome outages and ensure digital success it’s important to evaluate your DNS infrastructure and determine which configuration is best for your IT environment at this layer. Discover how you can use Secondary or Multi-DNS architecture to promote business continuity, and optimal DNS resolution performance.

How multi-DNS patterns can significantly improve security, reliability, and performance of your infrastructure
The advantages and limitations of Primary-Secondary, Hidden Master and Primary-Primary configurations
The best use cases for implementing a supplemental or secondary DNS service
Every user’s first interaction with your website begins with a series of DNS queries. The Domain Name System or DNS is a distributed internet database that maps human-readable names to IP addresses, ensuring users reach the correct online asset (website, application, etc) efficiently. Knowing the complexities and best practices of this layer of your online infrastructure will help your organization build redundancy, improve end-user performance and establish a top notch DR plan.

1. Meet the new healthcare consumer
The consumerization of healthcare, major demographic shifts, and the migration
to mobile and social media are tilting the balance of power away from traditional
healthcare marketers and into the hands of potential patients.
2. Online reputation is the new competitive frontier for marketers
Healthcare brands are no longer controlled by marketers. Patient feedback about
doctors and facilities online is leading to total market transparency for healthcare
consumers. CG-CAHPS surveys only go so far in providing social proof.
3. Healthcare branding is becoming hyper-local
In the search for providers, all branding is local – at the level of individual
practitioners and facilities. Proliferating points of presence on the web make this
a challenge that requires technology. But healthcare marketers who scale online
review volume and quality will be rewarded with higher search visibility.
4. Business implications
Online ratings and reviews stand between everyth

Cox Communications has been a SundaySky customer for five years, running personalized video ad programs through traditional video publisher channels. At the end of 2016, Cox Communications expanded that program to Facebook to see if greater levels of personalization and performance could be achieved by combining the dynamic capabilities of SmartVideo technology with the reach of the Facebook ads platform.
The program targets recent Cox website visitors on Facebook and delivers them a relevant video ad with offers related to products and services they had viewed on Cox.com. The program leverages SundaySky’s SmartVideo platform to achieve Cox’s online revenue goals of maximizing the number of revenue-generating orders on its website while also lowering the cost per acquisition (CPA) as the program optimizes.
"Financial services institutions are high-value targets for cyberattacks because of the capital they control, the personal information on customers they maintain, and the fear an attack on a bank generates in the public.
Phishing attacks on FSIs have risen steadily, especially employee credential theft - because once an employee’s credentials are stolen, cyberattackers can access customer information, employee data, even finances.
While legacy security solutions claim to block up to 99.9 percent of cyberattacks, all it takes is one employee or contractor to open an email from an unknown source, download a file from a compromised website, or in any other way fall victim to a cyberattack.
So, it’s time for a new approach: Isolation, also known as, remote browsing.

Which of your applications should move to the cloud? Is public, private, or hybrid cloud the right choice? And should you use containers, or Platform-as-a-Service technologies? Whether you’re trying to optimize your existing landscape, strengthen your foundation, or innovate with newer technologies that are delivered via cloud platforms, you need to know where to start. In this webcast, hear how IBM helped The Tribune Publishing Company build an effective plan to accelerate their digital transformation. Learn how IBM can also help you analyze your full portfolio, identify opportunities to optimize and automate your infrastructure and determine which applications to move, and the potential business value.
Securing web applications in the AWS cloud environment relies on the cloud service provider and the customer working
together in a shared responsibility model. Effective security for web applications on AWS requires full visibility into the
environment in which the apps live, while also proactively monitoring for attacks without causing delays in application
development and delivery. For some customers this may be a challenge due to limited personnel resources or expertise.
This is where Alert Logic can help. We will automatically show you why, where, and how to respond to vulnerability
findings and provide you with short- and long-term recommendations to stop active attacks.
To help guide the way, following are key considerations for providing sound web application security running on the AWS
