IT leaders must consider new approaches to database administration, implementation, and security, including proactive management, to reduce time-consuming administrative tasks. This, in turn, will free them to develop strategies for capitalizing on the new data-driven initiatives that can help transform the enterprise. Learn more about these opportunities as well as how products, such as an integrated Database Appliance, can streamline the management of these tasks, while reducing costs and time.
Understanding, managing and containing risk has become a critical factor for many organizations
as they plot their hybrid architecture strategy. Access by an expanding array of privileged identities
looms large as a risk concern once organizations look beyond tactically using cloud services for cost
and agility efficiencies. Existing approaches developed for static infrastructure can address initial
risk concerns, but fall short in providing consistent policy enforcement and continuous visibility for
dynamic, distributed infrastructure.
Multiple elements factor into how effectively an enterprise can embrace automation and advance the maturity of their transformation. However, security tools are central to enabling a structured and measured approach to managing critical access risks at each stage of the maturity model journey. With the right privileged access platform and set of tools, enterprises can progressively automate and scale access management to align risk

There’s no denying that today’s workforce is “mobile.” Inspired by the ease and simplicity of their own personal devices, today’s workforce relies on a variety of tools to accomplish their business tasks — desktops, smart phones, tablets, laptops or other connected devices — each with varying operating systems.
The specific tasks they need to accomplish? That depends on the person. But it’s safe to say remotely logging in and out of legacy, desktop, mobile, software as-a-service (SaaS) and cloud applications is a given.
And the devices on which they work? They could be owned by the enterprise or the end user, with varying levels of company oversight, security and management. The result? An overabundance of “flexibility” that leads to fundamental IT challenges of security and manageability.
The mobile-cloud era is here. It is not merely about delivering apps; it is about simplifying processes so you can accomplish more. The mobile-cloud era is redefining productivity by enabling workflows through the key foundations of identity and contextual experiences, mobile collaboration, united endpoint management and security, and windows apps and desktops.
Today people work primarily from mobile sources and expect a strikingly continuous experience across all their devices, regardless of which device they select to best accomplish any given task. Once access is established, organizations are looking to transform processes to mobile so they can increase efficiency and workflows for end users, thereby driving productivity to the next level.
A large and growing number of security solutions are being touted as the ""next generation"" in cyber defense, and endpoint protection products are no exception. This has led to widespread confusion about which solutions have truly incorporated next-generation technologies and approaches, and which ones are making empty claims or half-hearted attempts.

As the number and variety of threats mushroom, an Ovum survey has found that security teams have become physically unable to respond in an appropriate way to the ones that actually matter, with 50% of respondents saying they deal with more than 50 alerts each day. Shockingly, for 6% of organizations, that figure rises to between 100 and 1,000 threats a day.
The solution? Ovum believes that security decision-makers should invest in centralized management capabilities, enabling them to control the disparate security tools in their infrastructure, and address the challenge of prioritizing the volumes of daily alerts they receive.

As the number and severity of cyberattacks continue to grow with no end in sight, cybersecurity teams are implementing new tools and processes to combat these emerging threats. However, the oneoverriding requirement for meeting this challenge is improved speed. Whether it’s speed of detection, speed of remediation or other processes that now need to be completed faster, the ability to do things quickly is key to effective cybersecurity.
The reason why speed is essential is simple: As the dwell time for malware
increases, the lateral spread of an attack broadens, the number of potentially breached files expands, and the difficulty in remediating the threat increases. And the stealthy nature of many of the newer threats makes finding them faster?before they become harder to detect?a critical focus in reducing the impact of an intrusion. These requirements make it essential that security operations centers (SOCs) can complete their activities
far more quickly, both now and moving forwa
The Security Operations Center (SOC) is the first line of defense against cyber attacks. They are charged with defending the business against the many new and more virulent attacks that occur all day, every day. And the pressure on the SOC is increasing.
Their work is more important, as the cost of data breaches are now substantial. The Ponemon Institute’s “2017 Cost of Data Breach Study” says the average cost of an incursion is $3.62 million. The study also says larger breaches are occurring, with the average breach impacting more than 24,000 records. And with new regulations such as the EU’s General Data Protection Requirement (GDPR) putting stiff financial penalties on breaches of personal data, the cost of a breach can have material impact on the financial
results of the firm. This trend toward increasingly onerous statutory demands will continue, as the U.S. is now considering the Data Privacy Act, which will bring more scrutiny and accompanying penalties for breaches involving
Cybercrime has rapidly evolved, and not for the better. What began in the 1990s as innocent pranks designed to uncover holes in Windows servers and other platforms soon led to hacker Kevin Mitnick causing millions of dollars in malicious damages, landing him in prison for half a decade and raising the awareness of cybersecurity enough to jump-start a multimillion-dollar antivirus industry. Then came the script kiddies, unskilled hackers who used malicious code written by others to wreak havoc, often just for bragging rights. If only that were still the case.

Multi-tenancy is a key feature of Workday and enables multiple customers to share one physical instance of the Workday system in a highly secure environment. Multi-tenancy is enabled through the Workday Object Management Server (OMS). Workday OMS allows servers to host multiple customer tenants simultaneously and builds “security walls” between each of the tenants. Thanks to Workday OMS, there is no way for any worker in one tenant to access the information of another tenant.
Workday delivers its software using a continuous development model. Builds are rolled out weekly that contain new features, bug fixes, or performance improvements. Twice a year, Workday takes all the features put into preview and releases them to production for all customers. Workday customers are never landlocked on an old release, and all customers can utilize new features for the products they purchased as soon as they are live.
