Closing the communication gap around security and digital transformation:
According to a recent report, 95% of CIOs expect cyber-threats to increase over the next three years. But, despite cybersecurity being front of mind for board members and IT decision-makers, many admit they do not have an appropriate security strategy in place.
In this eBook we will:
• Discuss why organisations do not have a strategy in place for cybersecurity, despite the board and ITDMs recognising it as a key priority
• Explore the challenges ITDMs face communicating with the board about organisational priorities and skills disconnect
• Reveal what ITDMs can do to help close the looming 'security strategy gap' that is widening day by day, and could be detrimental to the organisation's cloud security

Business accelerates in the cloud. Cloud adoption expands security risks. In this report, McAfee examined the latest IaaS security and adoption trends, analysed the types of sensitive data in the cloud and how that data is shared. They’ve identified the common threats in the cloud and uncovered the largest areas of risk in cloud computing today.
Cloud services are fuelling growth. New apps. More devices. More Control. McAfee® MVISION Cloud protects data where it lives today, with a solution that was built natively in the cloud, for the cloud. It’s cloud-native data security.
Cloud Access Security Brokers are one of the fastest growing security technologies today because they provide cloud service visibility, data security, threat protection, and compliance. CASBs are an effective and easy way to mitigate the top cloud security threats and security practitioners look to trusted CASB providers as strategic partners to help advise on key cloud security decisions.
Whether you are leveraging the cloud for software as a service (SaaS), infrastructure as a service (IaaS), or platform as a service (PaaS), cloud security is a mandatory cost of doing business. In June 2016, Gartner issued a press release identifying the top information security technologies and included cloud access security brokers (CASBs) at the top of that list. Protecting your data and IP in the cloud is not an option.
Knowing that an ROI for a CASB could be longer term, how do you quickly quantify the additional value a CASB provides so that it gets a high priority in your already stretched information security budget? This white paper helps you to build a business case by walking you through the cost considerations and payback of a CASB. It demonstrates that a CASB provides stronger cloud protection at a lower cost than traditional security processes and tools.
Organizations face onboarding risks of BYOS (Bring Your Own Service) as they hire new employees that bring their own cloud services into the work environment. Risks facing IT and security teams include protecting corporate data and defending against modern threats. While IT and Security teams want to adopt modern cloud applications and increase business agility, they also want to implement visibility and monitoring to protect corporate data and comply to security policies. This session will highlight how new methodologies available today enable organizations to discover sanctioned and un-sanctioned cloud services that are being used within their organization, and how they can apply consistent security policies across the public and private cloud to protect corporate data and conform to compliance policies.

Office 365 has eclipsed all other cloud applications to emerge as the most widely used enterprise cloud service by user count. It’s easy to understand why: With Office 365, organizations no longer have to pay for hardware or resources to manage software in their own data centers, and their users always have the latest versions of applications. But Office 365 comes with significant security concerns, especially as organizations store more and more sensitive and business-critical data there. One study reports that virtually every organization experiences at least one cloud-based threat each month — and the average has soared to nearly 6 incidents every week. What can organizations do to protect their Office 365 environments? Read the white paper to learn.

It has become a significant force for value and revenue creation, but one that brings with it many challenges.
Over time, hybrid cloud will increasingly become the mainstream deployment model for IT infrastructure. Flash storage brings with it many benefits necessary in hybrid cloud environments, and IDC already views it as a requirement for enterprise workloads that have any performance sensitivity. This IDC white paper discusses the state of enterprise storage with respect to the evolving cloud storage market, explains why flash storage is needed in these environments, and then discusses what Pure Storage, a leading all-flash array vendor, brings to the table in this area. The document concludes with a short service provider case study.
This paper looks at BYOD security challenges posed by employees working beyond the company's secure perimeter, exposes the main BYOD security risks and proposes transitioning to a cloud-based security service.

Cloud computing is rapidly changing enterprise IT with applications like Salesforce and Office 365, which are improving productivity, reducing costs, and simplifying management.
Now, organizations are discovering that those same advantages can be achieved by migrating security to the cloud. In fact, in its 2016 Magic Quadrant report on Secure Web Gateways, Gartner reported, “Cloud services have experienced a 35% five-year compound annual growth rate, while on-premises appliances have only grown by 6% during the same period.”
Organizations understand that protecting users with a consistent and enforceable policy requires much more than simple URL or web filtering. Thousands of companies have already switched their IT security from appliances to experience the benefits of the Zscaler™ Security Cloud. Download this whitepaper today to find out why.
