The hybrid cloud has arrived for the enterprise, but it comes with a complication: the speed of light. Between the cloud and the end user (including IoT devices that count as ‘users’), there is an emerging need for an intermediate environment that can satisfy real-time compute requirements without incurring the latency of reaching all the way to the cloud. ‘Edge compute’ is the phrase used to describe what covers this middle ground, but the optimal location for edge compute resources remains open to question.
i. How automation and integration can work together to unify people, process, and technology. The security community has begun to embrace automation as a solution to handling tedious, repetitive tasks, allowing skilled staff to focus on more strategic and advanced endeavors. As destructive threats continue to increase, automation balances machine-based analysis with human-based domain knowledge to help organizations achieve optimal workflows in the face of staff shortages and alert fatigue. This SANS survey explores some of the misconceptions and facts around automation and how it can become a natural extension of individuals and teams trying to do their day jobs more effectively.

Moving major, business-supporting applications to the cloud can be a challenge for a variety of reasons. You may have concerns about the physical migration of data, as data loss or business disruption stemming from a migration issue would be a disaster for the business. Security is another typical concern, as a data breach of your most sensitive applications—like SAP or Oracle— could prove highly damaging. Akin to security, data sovereignty is an issue for many businesses. Stringent compliance laws in some jurisdictions are dictating data “residency”; and in the cloud, it is not always clear where the data is housed.
Among managed cloud service users, 68% state that using such services helps them to better manage resource allocation and make SAP and Oracle costs more predictable.
In this paper, we will look at common concerns over deploying and optimally managing business-critical, legacy applications in the cloud. We consider the benefits of managed cloud services, and how your

Explosive data growth and network complexity hindering your ability to deliver results? We get it: the more complex the application infrastructure, the harder it is to ensure apps are functioning optimally.
Read our new eBook, “Driving Digital Transformation with Application Intelligence,” to learn how to provide insight into applications across complex infrastructure. Discover previously hard-to-get information about bottlenecks, suspicious data, and user experience.
New digital technology now makes it feasible to integrate process control and SIF within a common automation infrastructure. While this can provide productivity and asset management benefits, if not done correctly, it can also compromise the safety and security of an industrial operation. Cybersecurity and sabotage vulnerability further accentuate the need for securing the safety instrumented system (SIS).
Certainly, a common platform approach using similar hardware and software dedicated for control and safety functions, respectively, can provide the potential for cost savings. However, it is widely acknowledged that utilizing separate, independent, and diverse hardware/software for safety and control is the optimal way to protect against potentially catastrophic common cause and systematic design and application errors.
Different vendors offer varied degrees of integration and solutions. The question is: how to provide an integrated control and safety solution with advanced functionality and productivity without compromising safety and security? And, where do users draw the line?
A third-party (e.g., TÜV) certification of the hardware/software systems to IEC 61508 specifications carries significant advantages, but should this be the only criterion? How does a third-party certificate extend to the plant’s overall assignment of risk reduction credits for all independent protection layers (IPL)? Control system embedded safety logic solvers may actually increase the SIL requirements of the SIF if no credit is allowed for the distributed control system (DCS) as an IPL.

Developing an optimal arc flash protection strategy
for a given facility can be difficult due to the number of solutions
and system variables involved. Effective arc flash hazard reduction
is best achieved by establishing an overall system protection
strategy that accounts for safety and operational requirements as
well as system reliability and availability. An overview of available
solution categories and application guidance based on experience
in a wide variety of facility types is presented in order to assist
engineers trying to implement “safety by design” principles
to help deal with arc flash hazards. The approach provided addresses
the complexities of the trade-offs between competing priorities
and provides tools that help users develop effective protection
strategies for the unique circumstances in a given facility.
What is SD-WAN?
Software-Defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) is the application of software-based
network technologies to WAN connections to more effectively route all network traffic
between headquarters or data centers, remote and branch offices, and the cloud.
More simply, it is the method of leveraging the benefits of the cloud, the bandwidth of
broadband and existing enterprise-wide network infrastructure to more efficiently and
cost effectively transmit media (data, video, voice) and quickly access cloud
applications from every location in the network.
SD-WAN dynamically utilizes multiple available connections (MPLS, broadband, LTE)
to find the optimal delivery path for traffic across the entire network, shaping the
bandwidth as needed to eliminate jitter and dropped data packets, thereby delivering
an optimal user experience regardless of location.
The more sophisticated solutions will first attempt to dynamically steer traffic to the
best available link and if the available link
The performance of enterprise applications will have a direct impact on business activities and outcomes. The quality of the delivery of applications will depend on how smoothly the underlying data infrastructure operates.
? Optimal application performance and delivery is difficult to achieve in complex environments.
? Many IT infrastructure and operations teams are stretched to the breaking point.
? Predictive analytics and machine learning can be applied to great effect

The Cisco SD-WAN solution is a cloud-delivered overlay WAN architecture that enables digital and cloud transformation at enterprises. It significantly reduces WAN costs and time to deploy new services, and, builds a robust security architecture crucial for hybrid networks. Enterprises today face major user experience problems for SaaS applications on account of networking problems. The centralized Internet exit architecture is inefficient and results in poor SaaS performance. And branch sites are running out of capacity to handle Internet traffic which is a concern because more than 50% of branch traffic is destined to the cloud. More importantly there are many dynamic changes in Internet gateways and the SaaS hosting servers that lead to unpredictability in performance. The Cisco SD-WAN solution solves these problems by creating multiple Internet exit points, adding high bandwidth at branch locations, and dynamically steering around problems in real-time, resulting is an optimal SaaS

The ongoing adoption of cloud computing by communications service providers (CSPs)
continues to fundamentally reshape their business models and technology strategies on
several levels. One such area that is garnering significant attention is the impact of the
cloud on security services. This is because security services and the vital tools they
encompass can be empowered through the adoption of a carrier cloud model. This, in turn,
better positions CSPs to meet the demands of their customers, including those in the small
to medium-size business (SMB) market segment.
The timing of this migration is optimal, since many SMBs now recognize the threats they
face and realize that given their limited IT budgets and lack of security expertise, CSPs are
well positioned to protect them from cyberattacks.
While the opportunity for CSPs is significant, many are hesitant to make a move in this area
because they want to ensure they can address SMBs’ needs and maintain control of the
service in a car
