Email is the backbone of today’s corporate business processes. It lives as the primary communication vehicle internally between employees and externally with customers, vendors, partners and investors. It is arguably today’s most pervasive and critical business application within which is stored the most valuable business content. To protect this vital information while working to eliminate risk, lower management costs and improve business insight, companies require a comprehensive email archiving solution. This solution should not only work to effectively retain email information in a searchable repository, the best email archiving solutions also provide a smarter approach to collecting, retaining and accessing data so that it can deliver true business value.
The “consumerization” of healthcare and sweeping policy changes will require that healthcare providers become more competitive or risk being left behind. Gaining the competitive edge means finding scalable efficiencies, leveraging the wealth of available patient data for improved care, and figuring out how to meet (or sometimes treat) patients where they already are—whether that happens to be at work, at the mall, or on the street.
While Machine to Machine (M2M) and Internet of Healthcare Things (IoHT) technologies promise to create massive efficiencies and a transformed patient experience, traditional wired connectivity solutions are often costly, difficult to deploy, and don’t offer the flexibility required for effective M2M and IoHT deployments.
IT virtualization, the engine behind cloud computing, can have significant consequences on the data center physical infrastructure (DCPI). Higher power densities that often result can challenge the cooling capabilities of an existing system. Reduced overall energy consumption that typically results from physical server consolidation may actually worsen the data center’s power usage effectiveness (PUE). Dynamic loads that vary in time and location may heighten the risk of downtime if rack-level power and cooling health are not understood and considered. Finally, the fault-tolerant nature of a highly virtualized environment could raise questions about the level of redundancy required in the physical infrastructure. These particular effects of virtualization are discussed and possible solutions or methods for dealing with them are offered.
In January 2016, 141 professionals — directors, CIOs and managers of large, small and mid-sized companies — were surveyed for a comprehensive disaster recovery (DR) survey. The results of this survey reveal some important truths about DR, backup, availability goals, downtime costs, and responses. For instance, did you know the top risk to system availability continues to be human error? This benchmark survey report reviews the challenges and best practices of companies using or looking to implement DR solutions. Read this report to compare your DR experiences with those of your peers.
The need for threat-focused next-generation firewalls (NGFWs) that can effectively mitigate risks that traditional unified threat management (UTM) and point solutions cannot is highlighted by numerous studies, including one from Cisco that reported that every organization should assume it has been hacked. Cisco threat researchers found malicious traffic was visible on 100 percent of the corporate networks that they observed, with evidence that adversaries had often penetrated those networks and were frequently operating undetected over a long period.

Endpoint backup has gone beyond simple backup/restore to a broader end-user data protection solution reducing various risks and increasing user productivity. This research helps I&O leaders evaluate enterprise endpoint backup solutions in two scenarios: cloud deployment and on-premises deployment.
As the oil and gas pipeline industry grapples with change at every level — including increasing pipeline operations and expanding regulatory oversight infrastructure —cost savings and operating efficiencies have become more important than ever. Both pipeline operators and contractors can benefit from utilizing EPPM solutions to help them pinpoint the best strategies to develop and implement projects from conception through execution to end game — thereby helping to reduce risk and manage cost. In the end, it’s all about smartly using an approach, such as EPPM solutions, like those from Oracle, to help pipeline operators and contractors reduce costs at the project, portfolio, and enterprise levels through the project lifecycle. The midstream companies that are able to implement the best approach to managing risk to their operations in the most cost - effective way will be the ones to best weather another tumultuous decade to come for the oil and gas industry.

"Security-conscious organizations face a gap between current
requirements and capabilities as they relate to data masking. Data volumes are growing exponentially and the risk of data leaks continues to make news, yet many organizations rely on inefficient, legacy approaches to protecting sensitive data. In contrast, top performing companies are turning to virtual databases and service-based masking solutions to ensure that data management functions can keep up with software development.

An enterprise runs hundreds, if not thousands, of applications, many of which are vulnerable to attack. The necessary response is to replace point security products with integrated solutions and adopt risk-based application security management. IBM Security solutions can be the foundation.
With the introduction of sophisticated threats such as advanced phishing and malware, authentication can become less effective. Authentication methods can be bypassed by fraudsters and traditional risk-based authentication solutions can cause many users to be unnecessarily challenged and disrupted, yet do not manage to reduce fraud. As fraud rises, there is a strong need for fraud tools that can detect account takeover and fraudulent transactions. IBM® Security Trusteer™ Pinpoint Criminal Detection software offers a next generation approach that helps address the challenges of traditional risk engines.
But what seems like a spoon full of sugar is often a tough pill to swallow when you consider regulatory requirements from agencies like the FDA for use of these networks. Adopting new technologies that allow employees to share information and exchange ideas with each other and with your customers is often the best way to achieve better business results, but doing so can involve considerable risk. That’s because the content people create using these technologies is subject to the scrutiny of regulators, legislators, and litigators. On top of that, increasing litigation has made it a business requirement to consider solutions that help bring down skyrocketing legal costs. Pharmaceuticals companies must be knowledgeable of, and abide by, specific information retention regulations in every country where they do business, including those countries that prohibit data from leaving the countries’ borders. Not having technology in place to help manage these requirements and increasing risks, or
Social Media Risks and Benefits for the Pharmaceuticals Industry
Drug makers are just beginning to realize how social networks can improve business processes. Social media helps your organization share information and exchange ideas with your customers quickly, but doing so can involve considerable risk. That’s because social media is subject to the scrutiny of regulators, legislators, and litigators. So, what seems like a spoon full of sugar is often a tough pill to swallow when you consider regulatory requirements from agencies like the FDA. On top of that, increasing litigation has made it a business requirement to consider solutions that help bring down skyrocketing legal costs. Not having technology in place to help manage these requirements and increasing risks, or doing so without careful planning, can be a costly mistake.

Traditional endpoint security has failed to keep up with today’s threats and is exposing organizations to unacceptable levels of risk. It’s time for smarter, next-generation malware prevention to replace or supplement traditional defenses. New approaches to malware can wrest back control and give security administrators greater visibility and control over their endpoints at a lower cost than traditional solutions.
This paper looks at the endpoint threats organizations are facing, the means to combat those threats, and why next-generation, cloud-driven protection offers the smartest way to prevent endpoint malware infections.
This paper provides an overview of new APIs risks, and offers five simple solutions to counter the common threats. By adopting a secure API architecture from the beginning, organizations can pursue an API strategy more safely and securely — and reap the benefits of agile integration promised by this exciting new technology.
