When it comes to the threat landscape, it’s important to take a look in the rearview mirror once in a while.
As with driving, not only do you get a good look at what’s behind you, but you can often spot what’s coming up quick, set to overtake you.
That’s the spirit of this threat report. We’ve picked out five key stories from the last year or so, not just because they were big events, but because we think these threats, or similar ones, could very well appear in the near future. Take modular threats like Emotet and VPNFilter, for example.
These are threats that can deliver an on-demand menu of attacks and threats, depending on which device is infected or the intended goal of the attacker. We saw plenty of such modular threats in recent history, and wouldn’t be surprised if we see more in the future.
Email remains the darling delivery method of attackers, with threats from cryptomining to Emotet using it to spread. It’s also highly likely that other threats, such as unauthorized M

o With foot traffic falling and online shopping options growing, retailers must find new ways to “digitize” and understand real-world behavioral data—such as in-store browsing patterns, staff attentiveness, and specific product interest— in the same way that online retail utilizes big data to optimize online experiences. They must also find innovative ways to keep customers engaged with their brands, especially in expensive brick-and-mortar locations. In this environment, managing labor costs is critical, as these costs are second only to real estate. Assigning and enabling sales associates cost-effectively is key to profitability. Retailers have an opportunity to meet their challenges by putting new data and Internet of Things (IoT) technologies to work

"Things are not as they used to be in the enterprise. Today’s employees are mobile, they’re storing and accessing data in cloud apps, and are in disparate networks. Yet, the threat-centric security approach, with its static policies forces decisions about cyber activity with no insight into the broader context. The result is a disproportionate number of flagged activities, overwhelming security teams who have no way to understand the ones most worthy of investigation.

Security spending is expected to reach $120 billion by 2021, yet the amount of data loss events seems to be increasing. Legacy DLP solutions, which rely on traditional threat blocking policies, have been unable to evolve to address these threats. Watch this webcast to understand how taking a Risk-Adaptive approach enables security to fluctuate based on the threat environment.
As data science becomes a critical capability for companies, IT leaders are finding themselves responsible for enabling data science teams with infrastructure and tooling. But data science is much more like an experimental research organization than the engineering and business teams that IT organizations support today. Compounding the challenge, data science teams are growing fast, often by 100% a year. This guide will quickly help you understand what data science teams do to build their predictive models and how to best support them.
Learn how to modernize IT’s approach to ensure your company’s data science teams perform their best, and maximize impact to the business. Some highlights include:
Why data science should not be treated like engineering.
How to go beyond simple infrastructure allocation and give data science teams capabilities to manage their workflows and model lifecycle.
Why agility and special hardware to support burst computing are so important to data science break
Digital kiosks are fast becoming ubiquitous in quick-service restaurants, cinemas and retail stores as retailers grapple to embrace automated, digital solutions to keep up with rising labour costs, customer expectations and stiff competition. To maximise the value of self-ordering kiosks, retailers should not perceive digital kiosks as a means to an end but a critical touchpoint within the customer journey.
Download the whitepaper to discover how the new generation of self-order kiosks—
• Can resolve the challenges of acquiring, training and maintaining a workforce
• Can enhance customer experiences throughout the entire shopping and purchasing process
• Can facilitate better business decision making through access to valuable customer data
If your organization's servers run applications that are critical to your business, chances are that you'd benefit from an application delivery solution. Today's Web applications can be delivered to users anywhere in the world and the devices used to access Web applications have become quite diverse.
This year, businesses will increasingly turn to AI to power their business transformation. Machine learning and deep learning workloads are quickly becoming a mission-critical workload in the enterprise data center. As an IT leader, are you ready for the impending wave of AI applications that will demand new approaches to computing, storage and networking? Do you have the right strategy for scaling AI workload in your data center? We’ll introduce you to the IT visionaries who have made it happen. In this webinar we’ll explore how one IT leader accelerated his company’s success with an AI infrastructure strategy, sharing their best practices and insights.
By watching this webinar, you'll learn:
- Why it’s now critical for enterprise IT to have an AI infrastructure strategy that supports the business
- Explore one IT leader’s experience developing and implementing a best-of-breed platform for scaling AI workload in the data center
- Gain insights that can drive your AI infrastructur
A forward-looking CMDB does more than keep an organization's IT operations running. It draws clear connections between IT components and business services, which is the core of Business Service Management (BSM). But even more critical than the CMDB's ability to support business as it is now, is the question of how well it will drive business innovation in the future.
ASG's Business Service PortfolioT (BSPT) Virtualization Management provides comprehensive oversight, inspections, discoveries, warnings, diagnostics, and reporting for the critical technology and administrative disciplines involved in virtual workload management. This is all done in parallel with physical systems management.
Business runs on content and that content must be managed holistically, across the entire business. However, managing content is, in itself, not enough to drive business. Enterprises must incorporate ECM with other IT management systems to provide complete Business Service Management (BSM).
Aligning IT and business perspectives requires the ability to create links between configuration information in the CMDB and the business service as experienced by the user. Service Dependency Mapping (SDM) products automate the process of creating and maintaining these links.
Generally, CMDBs populated by discovery tools alone simply aren't usable. They fail because they contain massive amounts of irrelevant information. You avoid this pitfall by correctly populating your CMDB in four simple steps.
Because business success is tightly fused with technology, IT costs are rising, and this trend is expected to continue. As a result, businesses are demanding that IT be more than a static resource. IT is expected to deliver business results with a measurable contribution to the organization's bottom line.
ITIL provides a framework of customizable best practice initiatives that help organizations consistently deliver high-quality IT services. Effective ITIL implementation adds value to the IT infrastructure and improves business and service delivery.
Composite applications can provide multiple benefits, such as business agility, better utilization of business software assets through code reuse, development efficiencies, and cost optimization. Once companies are skilled at deploying them, many find that they roll out new applications and integrations faster, while maximizing the value of "tried and true" software components.
Application management requires visibility from multiple vantage points within the IT enterprise, combined with a centralized information store that pulls the technology pieces of the application puzzle into a coherent whole.
To meet the challenges of intense competition and increasing customer demands, companies must tightly align their IT service management with business issues and priorities. This paper outlines the maturity steps involved in the progression towards proactive Business Service Management (BSM) and explains how ASG's metaCMDB helps secure its seamless adoption.
