The world is moving at lightning speed from legacy enterprise software to SOA, SaaS integration and APIs, compelled by the power of convention over configuration and the promise of agility and operational efficiency. Yet most businesses face a widening divergence between the IT infrastructure demanded by emerging business needs and the infrastructure they’ve built up over generations.

The Network for the Digital Business Starts with the Secure Access Service Edge (SASE)

The digital business is all about speed. Time to develop new products, deliver them to the market, and respond to a change in business conditions or the competitive landscape. Technology is how speed happens, and IT must enable the business to get things done. Automation, agility, elasticity, and flexibility are some of the traits of the modern IT infrastructure, which is already demonstrated via the increased usage of cloud computing.

Preparing for Digital Transformation in Public Safety

From the proliferation of body cameras and video to predictive analytics and the emerging potential of FirstNet and 5G, public safety organizations are on the cusp of a technology revolution. “Public safety organizations are in transition,” says Gary Buonacorsi, chief technology officer for state and local government at Dell EMC. “Their challenge is how to manage, deploy and secure these technologies.”

How to Build a Security Operations Center (On a Budget)

Security Operations Center (SOC) teams are responsible for monitoring, detecting, containing, and remediating IT threats across critical applications, devices, and systems in their public and private cloud environments as well as physical locations. Using a variety of technologies and processes, Security Operations Center (SOC) teams rely on the latest threat intelligence to determine whether an active threat is occurring, the scope of the impact, and the appropriate remediation.

Through massive tech industry growth bolstered by 3rd Platform solutions, digitally motivated businesses are getting more precise in their messaging, targeting customer needs, and bringing new experiences to market through digital transformation (DX).

9 Steps to Success with Data Protection

Data protection is about understanding potential risks to your data and how to take action if they materialize. But how do you balance what your organization needs to get work done with what it needs to keep data safe? These nine steps will walk you through how to implement data protection controls that are both measurably effective and practical for your day-to-day, and pinpoint opportunities to fortify your solution with risk-adaptive data protection.

Legacy vs. SD-WAN: Securely Connect Your Network to the Cloud

The Wide Area Network (WAN) is the backbone of the business. It ties together the remote locations, headquarters and data centers into an integrated network. Yet, the role of the WAN has evolved in recent years. Beyond physical locations, we now need to provide optimized and secure access to Cloud-based resources for a global and mobile workforce. The existing WAN optimization and security solutions, designed for physical locations and point-to-point architectures, are stretched to support this transformation.

Advanced Data Protection for Midsize Enterprises

Robust security programs are more accessible, affordable, and capable than ever before, helping confront a deluge of new regulations and cyber threats. While most midsize enterprises have conventional firewalls and intrusion detection products in place, countless others have eschewed more robust security solutions and services. They’ve justified their hands-off approach with a variety of misconceptions and excuses.

Cloud-Native Backup and Disaster Recovery for VMware

One size does not fit all when it comes to meeting VMware-based virtual machine (VM) data protection requirements. Costs must be kept in check while shrinking recovery time and meeting recovery point objectives. IT professionals are pressured to deliver near-zero data loss and near-zero application downtime. They also need to comply with data privacy regulations such as the European Union’s (EU’s) General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA). Finally, the IT professional must develop strategies that protect against increasingly tenacious ransomware attacks.

The Right Time to Manage and Analyze Big Data in the Cloud

If you’re about to take an analytic crack at unfiltered terabytes or even petabytes of complex, unstructured data, it can stay in a public cloud provider like Amazon Web Services, said Judith Hurwitz. The consultant and author of numerous IT books, including several in the For Dummies instructional series, said analyzing big data in the cloud often works “because you’re still in the process of separating the wheat from the chaf,” so there’s no reason for the extra security of keeping it in-house. “It has not become mission-critical at that point,” Hurwitz said.

Data Recovery Matters, Even for Noncritical Workloads

The industry regularly waxes lyrical about the value of data, but in our Voice of the Enterprise: Storage data we see that organizations have considerable expectations when it comes to how much data can be lost in an outage and how quickly data or workloads must be recovered. While there is a clear and logical hierarchy in importance between mission-critical, business-critical and noncritical applications and data, many organizations are unwilling to tolerate long periods of downtime for even noncritical data.

YOUR CLOUD, YOUR WAY: Build Your Enterprise Cloud With Innovative Private Cloud Solutions

Companies must innovate in order to survive. Since 2000, 52% of the Fortune 500 have been acquired or have gone bankrupt. Only 12% of those that existed in 1955 exist today. In a marketplace that is competitive, unforgiving, and waits for no one, companies that don’t constantly redefine themselves based on customer needs and market dynamics simply cease to exist.

Critical Questions When Assessing Your E-commerce Platform

A purpose-built, cloud-based commerce platform is essential to maintaining a competitive eCommerce presence. Once you’ve reached the limitations of your current solution, it’s time to graduate to an updated system capable of growing with your business. Choosing a new eCommerce platform is a significant investment in your future requiring careful allocation of time and resources.

SD-WAN: Security, Application Experience and Operational Simplicity Drive Market Growth

SD-WAN at its core helps enterprises achieve dynamic alignment among business and IT strategy, application policy, and WAN configuration. In other words, it enables the WAN to provide the application experience (reliability, availability, performance), and application security demanded by business users, and the operational simplicity that IT and network admins yearn for in the current paradigm of rising IT complexity. We further explore these three key value drivers of SD-WAN adoption below:

7 Elements of Cybersecurity Readiness

An organization cannot achieve cybersecurity readiness without a comprehensive understanding of its most important information assets, how its information systems and networks operate, how its information systems support business operations, and what information is moving in, out and through its networks. Discover the 7 elements of cybersecurity readiness your organization needs to possess for a high degree of situational awareness into network operations and network utilization.

The Pros and Cons of a Serverless Architecture, and How to Prepare

The term serverless generates a lot of discussion. What exactly does it mean, and how can it help developers move from a monolithic architecture into a distributed one? Similarly, there is also confusion about the different benefits of containers and serverless architectures. Both architectures are modern approaches to application management, and each has specific benefits.

IBM Aspera: Direct-to-Cloud Storage

The Aspera FASP high speed transport platform is enabled to provide high-performance secure WAN transport of files, directories, and other large data sets to, from and between a number of leading third-party cloud storage platforms. The implementation is an enhanced transport stack and virtual file system layer in the Aspera server software that allows for direct-to-object-storage transfer over the WAN using the FASP protocol and the native I/O capabilities of the particular third-party file system.

Multi-Cloud Management: Necessity or Vendor Hype?

Organizations of all sizes rely on cloud services to support new initiatives, stay competitive and capture greater business value. Companies often depend on multiple clouds to meet constantly evolving business goals and to avoid single-vendor lock-in and dependencies. With a multi-cloud approach, a business uses a combination of public cloud services from different providers and selects the most appropriate environment for both infrastructure and applications.

How HPE Gen10 Servers Guard Against Firmware Attacks

Modern businesses collect and analyze massive data volumes — a trend that is likely to continue in the foreseeable future. The global datasphere is projected to reach 175 zettabytes (ZB) by 2025,1 due in part to the push for digital transformation and the rise of IoT. To put that number in context, a zettabyte is 1 trillion gigabytes. As more businesses integrate digital technologies into their everyday operations, the demand for high-performing servers to process and protect that data will increase accordingly.

Combating Advanced Threats with Endpoint Security Intelligence

From custom malware to zero-day exploits, advanced security threats are exploding worldwide—and the sophistication of these attacks is higher than ever. Today’s cybercriminals are adept at finding victims to target via email or web-based threats, as well as exploiting vulnerabilities in the endpoints themselves. Large, coordinated, operationally sophisticated attacks are now executed across broad swaths of the Internet, bypassing traditional security mechanisms. And the number of malware strains just keeps growing.

Redefining Networks for Cloud, Analytics, Mobile, Social and Security

Much has been written about cloud, big data and analytics, mobile, social, and IT security as significant forces that are transforming information technology and business. Much less has been said about the impact of these forces on networking— or about the role that networks play when business initiatives are based on them. As these technologies move from future trend to mainstream, the network as the common, critical infrastructure component will get close to the breaking point.

How Security Solutions Enable Cloud Success

Cloud adoption is now mainstream, and all types of cloud services ranging from on-premise private cloud (adopted by 44% of organizations), to hosted private cloud (adopted by 34% of organizations) to the three types of public cloud are seeing growth in adoption. The key challenge is connecting the different cloud services into hybrid and multicloud environments and to put a comprehensive management, governance and security framework in place across the various clouds.

Disaggregation Necessary in a Complete Backup and DR Solution

Data is a vital part of an organization and business owners are finding ways to make their data more available and secure with every passing minute. Backup comes to mind talking about data protection but a complete data protection is a lot more than that.

There are a two main factors that play their part in making a backup reliable and efficient: disaggregation and disaster recovery. This article will highlight them and how they are useful for an enterprise.

Web Security: Essential Component of Threat-Centric Defense Strategy

Endpoint security and the Web security defenses protecting the endpoint are on the front lines in the battle against malware and targeted attacks attempting to gain access to corporate resources. Web security technologies are adapting to the growing use of cloud services and the explosion of mobile devices, which together have created a perimeter that is becoming more malleable every day. That digital fluidity is under attack by organized criminals in Eastern Europe, Russia, and China who are taking advantage of the growing complexity and strained security defenses.

Exponential Growth in AI Infrastructure Market

Artificial intelligence (AI) refers to the theory and development of computer systems capable of performing tasks that usually require human intelligence. AI involves the study and synthesis of intelligent agents—in this case, a computer system. AI applications process large volumes of data, and they require powerful processing capabilities outside. AI infrastructure enables superior data throughput and storage capacity, as well as large data workloads.
