Can your business afford to lose $9,000 per minute?
According to the Ponemon Institute $9,000 is the average cost of an unplanned outage. In some cases the costs are much higher. The catalogue of cloud outages over recent years is well publicized and reads like a “who’s who” of the technology industry. It seems no one is immune.
But when it comes to delivering digital content, downtime isn’t the only concern. Today a poor user experience can be just as damaging as an outage. According to Limelight research, 78% of people will stop watching an online video after it buffers three times, and the majority of people will not wait more than 5 seconds for a website to load.
Organizations looking to deliver great digital experiences for their customers often choose to deliver that content using Content Delivery Networks (CDNs). Using multiple CDNs to deliver these digital content experiences promises even greater levels of availability and performance. But it brings with it a host of questi
There are a number of factors contributing to the growing popularity of streaming live events or offering content on demand, from anywhere, any time, on any device. Live streaming major sporting events such as the Superbowl or the Olympics is now a viable alternative to broadcast TV. And as Limelight’s 2017 State of Online Video report reveals, the average number of online viewing hours is almost six per week. However, as viewer expectations continue to rise, keeping audiences happy and engaged isn’t easy.
In this white paper we discuss current trends and what to expect in 2018. We examine the role Content Delivery Networks (CDN) can play in optimizing the delivery of online video content at global scale, and the technologies available to ensure the lowest latency delivery possible.

Most CIOs today understand that digital transformation initiatives can help streamline business process; boost ef?ciency; increase competitiveness; and, broadly, help their organization become disruptive over the long term.
Some of the transformation initiatives under way—even in many pace-setting companies—are struggling to manage the exponential explosion of unstructured data and the associated heightened compliance and security demands, however.
Fortunately, new solutions that tap arti?cial intelligence (AI) can extract hidden insights from unstructured data, such as documents, images, videos, and audio ?les. AI is also helping automate many of the labor-intensive processes used to classify, organize, and analyze unstructured content
As businesses continue to expand their online reach globally, user experience is one of the most important factors for building audience satisfaction and driving revenue. But whether you are delivering videos, web content or even ? les, ensuring engaging online experiences from an increasing variety of devices around the world, is a huge challenge.
Organizations have a number of methods for improving user experiences, one of which is leveraging a content delivery network (CDN). But not all CDNs deliver the same level of service. This guide will provide some tips on how to determine what is most important to your organization and how to choose a CDN that meets your needs.
Cyber-criminals are increasingly sophisticated and targeted in their attacks. If you are in charge of ensuring the security of your company’s website, it has not been easy going as these notable security incidents reveal:
• Sabre Systems—The reservation software company had data from Hard Rock Hotels, Google, Loews, and others, stolen as a result of the breach1.
• CIA—WikiLeaks obtained and published documents detailing the intelligence agency’s hacking efforts1.
• Virgin America—Thousands of employees and contractors had their login information compromised1.
• Equifax—The credit rating agency had a breach into highly sensitive personal information of 143 million U.S. consumers1.
• Universities and Federal Agencies—More than 60 universities and US federal organizations were compromised with SQL injections1.
There are numerous lessons to be learned from these breaches. Despite the growing stream of news stories about highly damaging attacks that compromise customer info
Why do so many companies turn to a Content Delivery Network (CDN) to deliver their online videos, websites, and downloads?
It’s simple: The core benefits of a CDN directly improve customer experiences. End-users get the content they want quickly and
reliably with better quality, wherever they are located. More satisfied customers help the organization increase revenue and
Many companies that need to deliver content online at scale use Content Delivery Networks (CDNs) to improve performance. However,
even with a reliable CDN, there can be issues with service quality in different regions, insufficient capacity during peak periods, and lack of
resiliency and diversification. To address these concerns, some companies distribute their delivery load across more than one CDN, a concept
often called a multi-CDN implementation. In this paper, we’ll explore frequently-asked questions and best practices for implementing
multi-CDN workflows based on extensive experience.
To provide the best possible streaming video experience that will increase revenue and customer satisfaction, many organizations engage
the services of a Content Delivery Network (CDN). However, to choose the right CDN for your video workflow and business requirements, you

AlchemyAPI’s approach to natural language processing incorporates both linguistic and statistical analysis techniques into a single unified system. This hybrid approach provides an industry-leading advantage since both techniques have benefits and drawbacks depending on the content and specific usecases. Linguistic analysis takes a basic grammatical approach to understand how words combine into phrases, and how those phrases combine into sentences. While this approach works well with editorialized text (e.g., news articles and press releases), it does not perform as well when it comes to usergenerated content, often filled with slang, misspellings and idioms. Statistical analysis, however, understands language from a mathematical standpoint and works well on “noisy” content (e.g., tweets, blog posts, and Facebook status updates). The combination of these two approaches allows for increased accuracy on a variety of content.

The personal cloud is the most persistent data loss threat to the enterprise today because many employees use their own cloud services to store work documents. Traditionally, content security solutions functionally link security and storage which requires the migration of work documents to a new content storage repository in order to enforce security policies. This increases complexity by creating more repositories for the enterprise to manage. Most importantly, this approach does not solve the personal cloud problem because individual users continue to store their work documents, for convenience, in cloud services that IT cannot secure.

The Android platform has quickly established itself as a dominant mobile OS for consumers. However, enterprise IT has been slower to adopt Android broadly due to lack of Enterprise Mobility Management capabilities in Android and fragmentation. But the recent release of Android Lollipop reduces fragmentation and when combined with MobileIron enterprise mobility management (EMM) solutions, gives IT the tools needed to easily manage and secure apps and content on all types of Android devices. This will accelerate adoption of Android devices within the enterprise.

More often than not, performance and security are thought of as two separate issues that require two separate solutions. This is mainly due to the implications posed behind various performance and security products. We typically have either security solutions or performance solutions, but rarely solutions that offer both. As technology has advanced, so have our attackers, finding newer and better ways to impact both the performance and security of a site. With this in mind, it has become even more critical to come up with solutions that bridge the gap between security and performance. But how do we do that? We need to shift the focus to what we can do at the browser by leveraging various frontend techniques, such as web linking and obfuscation, versus solely relying upon the capabilities of a content delivery network (CDN) or the origin. We can take advantage of all the new and emerging frontend technologies to help provide a secure and optimal experience for users—all starting at the
Customers have caught on that support interactions are getting better. When they reach out, they’ve come to expect an instant response that says “we’re here for you”. When they want information, it’s expected to be accurate, up-to-date, and easily accessible. Essentially, they come to expect efficiency during support interactions.
As a result, businesses are becoming more cognizant of their self- service offerings. Customers want to be left feeling empowered; it’s even better when they can do so on their own. Self-service saves time for agents, cuts down on organizational costs, and leaves the customer with a positive outlook of a brand.
This eBook delves into how AI can enhance your customer self-service offerings with automatically-generated knowledge bases, content cues for your service agents, and chatbots.

Most security effectiveness tests take a sample of known malicious content, and see how many threats each solution can catch. Unfortunately, stopping known threats — those with a known signature, reputation or destination — isn't enough to protect real-world networks.
So we designed a new test, along with leading independent test laboratory Miercom*, that simulates a typical day on a network like yours. We put a large sample of web traffic of unknown nature through our TRITON-powered Websense® Web Security Gateway solution, along with competing web gateways and firewalls. Each solution had a fair and equal chance to analyze, classify and block threats as it would on your network.
