In the not so distant past, the way we worked looked very different. Most work was done in an office, on desktops that were always connected to the corporate network. The applications and infrastructure that we used sat behind a firewall. Branch offices would backhaul traffic to headquarters, so they would get the same security protection. The focus from a security perspective was to secure the network perimeter. Today, that picture has changed a great deal.
I progressi nel campo digitale rivoluzionano in profondità il nostro modo di lavorare, introducendo innovazioni nei nostri uffici praticamente ogni giorno. Queste tecnologie hanno alzato il livello delle aspettative, costringendo le aziende a operare con un'agilità senza precedenti.
Questi cambiamenti sono grandi opportunità, ma purtroppo ci imbattiamo anche in nuovi ostacoli che possono intralciare la nostra marcia verso il successo, come la necessità di innovare rapidamente, di minimizzare i costi e di reagire prontamente alle pressioni della concorrenza.
IT departments are under constant pressure to do more with less. Now, as well as keeping the lights on, they are expected to deliver projects that create real business value. As more businesses use digital technologies to disrupt their markets, this pressure is intensifying.
Infrastructure as a service (IaaS) is evolving against this background. Initially, it caught CIOs’ attention because it helped them cut costs. Today, IaaS underpins organizations’ agility in the face of disruption and drives innovation-led growth.
When your solution needs deep packet inspection (DPI) application awareness as a key enabling feature, highly reliable and accurate identification of network traffic and applications - in real time - is an expected requirement. Whether it’s for software defined networks to enable policy control and critical traffic steering or to protect corporate networks, IoT devices, and cloud platforms from malicious attacks, it’s crucial to choose the right DPI solution.
Advanced persistent threats (APTs) are stealthier and more spiteful than ever. Sophisticated techniques are used to quietly breach organizations and deploy customized malware, which potentially remains undetected for months. Such attacks are caused by cybercriminals who target individual users with highly evasive tools. Legacy security approaches are bypassed to steal sensitive data from credit card details to intellectual property or government secrets. Traditional cybersecurity solutions, such as email spam filters, anti-virus software or firewalls are ineffective against advanced persistent threats. APTs can bypass such solutions and gain hold within a network to make organizations vulnerable to data breaches.

Las empresas que actualmente adoran las metodologías ágil y de desarrollo y aplicaciones luchan por lograr cambios rápidos e implementaciones veloces. Para estas compañías, la arquitectura de microservicios supone un regalo, pero no el fin de todas sus preocupaciones. Las organizaciones pueden habilitar a equipos de desarrollo más reducidos, dotados de una agilidad y autonomía mayores. Como resultado, el resto del negocio notará que la TI se ajusta mejor a las cambiantes demandas que se les proponen.
Desea ofrecer innovaciones, lanzar aplicaciones más rápido y aprovechar nuevas oportunidades, pero las infraestructuras y aplicaciones heredadas no se lo permiten. Cámbiese a una arquitectura moderna a través de la descomposición de aplicaciones monolíticas en microservicios ágiles, creados, gestionados y escalados de manera independiente. Su negocio podrá actuar más rápido y los desarrolladores estarán encantados con el acceso sencillo a las API, que les ofrece la libertad de centrarse en la experiencia de los clientes.
A lot can be learned from getting a group of experienced CIOs in a room and encouraging them to talk freely about the topics at the front of their minds. Rarely do they want to discuss technology, and even the latest IT industry ‘hot topics’ usually don’t get that much airplay. Conversations, and sometimes quite heated debates, tend to revolve around broader business-related trends, how these are changing stakeholder and user behaviour and expectations, and how best to respond to such dynamics.
En la actualidad, el software se encuentra en el núcleo de la metodología de las empresas para competir y funcionar de forma eficaz en el siglo XXI. Durante mucho tiempo, la tecnología ha desempeñado un papel decisivo en la estrategia empresarial. Sin embargo, la transformación digital ha ampliado las iniciativas de transformación y aceleración del ciclo de entrega de software, así como los procesos de desarrollo de aplicaciones, a un imperativo que se extiende por toda la empresa y se interseca cada vez más con la otra preocupación que acucia a los directivos: la ciberseguridad.
Las cuentas de usuario con privilegios, ya se usurpen, sean objeto de abuso o, simplemente, se usen de forma incorrecta, se encuentran en el corazón de la mayoría de las infracciones relativas a datos. Los equipos de seguridad evalúan, cada vez más, soluciones de gestión de accesos con privilegios (PAM) completas para evitar el perjuicio que podría provocar un usuario malintencionado con privilegios altos o un usuario con privilegios que está cansado, estresado o que, sencillamente, comete un error. La presión que ejercen los ejecutivos y los equipos de auditoría para reducir la exposición de la empresa aseguran el esfuerzo, pero las soluciones de PAM completas pueden acarrear costes ocultos, según la estrategia de implementación adoptada.
Financial institutions seeking to attract new customers and revenue channels are expanding into digital services, real-time payments and global transactions. However, with every new service, criminals are developing innovative ways to infiltrate financial systems, and older technologies that mitigate fraud no longer work as effectively.
So how can financial institutions respond to this growing threat?
Fortunately, more advanced technologies hold great potential for real-time financial crime mitigation. Learn about five current and emerging technologies that could impact money laundering and fraud mitigation, including artificial intelligence/machine learning, blockchain, biometrics, predictive analytics (hybrid model) and APIs.

Limited visibility has tethered CIOs' success in both IT and business. However, using federated CMDB technology, CIOs can view the complete IT infrastructure and the entire lifecycle of a business service.
A recent survey of CIOs found that over 75% want to develop an overall information strategy in the next three years, yet over 85% are not close to implementing an enterprise-wide content management strategy. Meanwhile, data runs rampant, slows systems, and impacts performance. Hard-copy documents multiply, become damaged, or simply disappear.
In Q4, 2009, ENTERPRISE MANAGEMENT ASSOCIATES (EMA) analysts worked with ASG to research how executives in IT and within the lines of business use dashboards to gain holistic insights into IT services as they impact business outcomes.
