An interactive white paper describing how to get smart about insider threat prevention - including how to guard against privileged user breaches, stop data breaches before they take hold, and take advantage of global threat intelligence and third-party collaboration.
Security breaches are all over the news, and it can be easy to think that all the enemies are outside your organization. But the harsh reality is that more than half of all attacks are caused by either malicious insiders or inadvertent actors.1 In other words, the attacks are instigated by people you’d be likely to trust. And the threats can result in significant financial or reputational losses.
There are many types of databases and data analysis tools to choose from when building your application. Should you
use a relational database? How about a key-value store? Maybe a document database? Is a graph database the right ft?
What about polyglot persistence and the need for advanced analytics?
If you feel a bit overwhelmed, don’t worry. This guide lays out the various database options and analytic solutions
available to meet your app’s unique needs.
You’ll see how data can move across databases and development languages, so you can work in your favorite
environment without the friction and productivity loss of the past.
Security threats are very real, and the stakes are higher than ever. Each day, tens of thousands of malware variants are created, with new classes of threats continually added and improved upon. Savvy attackers use polymorphic programs to alter malware into new form factors after each delivery. And all of this is exacerbated by the proliferation of mobile devices, cloud computing and social media—in fact, the intersection of these technologies provides fertile new ground for threats and malware.
Data—dynamic, in demand and distributed—is challenging to
secure. But you need to protect sensitive data, whether it’s stored
on-premises, off-site, or in big-data, private- or hybrid-cloud
environments. Protecting sensitive data can take many forms, but
nearly any organization needs to keep its data accessible, protect
data from loss or compromise, and comply with a raft of regulations
and mandates. These can include the Payment Card Industry Data
Security Standard (PCI DSS), the Health Insurance Portability and
Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) and the European Union (EU)
General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Even in the cloud, where
you may have less immediate control, you must still control your
sensitive data—and compliance mandates still apply.

If company laptops, PDAs, or other mobile devices can't be found, it doesn't always mean that they've been stolen. Companies often lose track of these IT assets because there's no clear record of them. Encryption and inventory management can help to safeguard against the loss of confidential data.
Downtime and data loss pose intolerable risks to every business today. From IT departments to the Board Room, managers have seen the importance of business uptime and data protection to continued success, productivity and profitability.
Journaling? RAID? Vaulting? Mirroring? High availability? Know your data protection and recovery options! Download this information-packed 29-page report that reviews the spectrum of IBM i (i5/OS) and AIX resilience and recovery technologies and best practices choices, including the latest, next-generation solutions.
For IT departments looking to bring their AIX environments up to the next step in data protection, IBM’s PowerHA (HACMP) connects multiple servers to shared storage via clustering. This offers automatic recovery of applications and system resources if a failure occurs with the primary server.
Distributed denial-of-service attacks may be organized by type into a taxonomy that includes network attacks (layers 3 and 4), session attacks (layers 5 and 6), application attacks (layer 7), and business logic attacks. Each type may be matched with the best F5 technology for mitigating that attack. This paper explains how taken together, the F5 BIG-IP portfolio of products provides effective anti-attack technology for each layer of the taxonomy and can also defend against specific attack tools, network reconnaissance, and low-bandwidth asymmetric attacks.
A powerful signal integrity analysis tool must be flexibility, easy to use and integrated into an existing EDA framework and design flow. In addition, it is important for the tool to be accurate enough. This report reviews a validation study for the Mentor Graphics HyperLynx 8.0 PI tool to establish confidence in using it for power integrity analysis.
For advanced signaling over high-loss channels, designs today are using equalization and several new measurement methods to evaluate the performance of the link. Both simulation and measurement tools support equalization and the new measurement methods, but correlation of results throughout the design flow is unclear. In this paper a high performance equalizing serial data link is measured and the performance is compared to that predicted by simulation. Then, the differences between simulation and measurements are discussed as well as methods to correlate the two.

The purpose of deduplication is to provide more storage, particularly backup storage, for less money, right? Then wouldn't it be ridiculous if deduplication vendors were demanding that their customers pay more per terabyte of storage? Or if they were simply pushing the task of integrating, monitoring, and managing deduplication back onto their users?

The average employee sends and receives about 110 emails each day or 29,000 emails per year. One in every 20 of those emails contains “risky” data – from sensitive attachments to social security numbers to protected health information to valuable corporate secrets that set your organization apart. All of this risky data can become toxic to your company if it’s hacked or suffers a breach – causing reputational damage, customer loss, heavy fines and decreased competitive edge. SilverSky’s Email DLP is powered by IBM technology.

Mobile devices, including smartphones and tablets, enable increasing numbers of employees to work "anywhere, anytime."The security of enterprise data is a key concern, particularly on mobile devices that are easily lost or stolen. The security risk is further heightened by the proliferation of employee-owned mobile devices in many enterprises. Employees will almost always take the path of least resistance in leveraging mobile devices for business purposes, which may lead to unsafe computing practices. A clearly documented and enforceable mobile security policy is critical to reducing the risk of data loss.
Simply put, software defined storage is the abstraction of storage services from storage hardware. This term is more than just marketing hype, it’s the logical evolution of storage virtualization from simply being a storage aggregator to the end goal of storage as a service. To achieve this goal, software defined storage needs a platform from which to centralize.
Data breaches are more than a security problem. A significant attack can shake your customer base, partner relations, executive staff, profits, and revenue. Historic data breaches have cost executives their jobs, resulted in major revenue losses and damaged brand reputations. In a 2014 study of 700 consumers about brand reputation by Experian and the Ponemon Institute, data breaches were reported as the most damaging occurrence to brand reputation, exceeding environmental disasters and poor customer service.1 In a world where data breaches have become commonplace, what steps can be taken to minimize damage?
As information security continues to rise to the top of the enterprise priority list, what used to be an easy-to-control environment, with all data stored behind the corporate firewall, is no longer. Shadow IT, mobile computing, consumer IT, and cloud computing are all transforming enterprise IT. Workers using unsecured networks and devices without encryption are also a concern, as data breaches cost organizations millions of dollars in fines, data loss, investigations, and customer backlash.
With Windows 10, Microsoft brings to market a mobile and cloud-ready OS that is poised to have a significant impact on organizations’ end user computing (EUC) strategy. The modern OS offers a unified platform for building apps and extending the organization’s core processes to end users anywhere and using any Windows 10-powered device. However, enterprise wide execution of this business mobility vision comes with its own set of challenges. A 2015 VMware study involving 1,000+ IT decision makers identified the following top concerns for adoption of mobility initiatives:
Reduce the overall cost and complexity of management
Ensure security and control of devices at all times
Minimize the risk of corporate data loss
With a unified endpoint management vision, VMware AirWatch® is strategically positioned to address these challenges. AirWatch's EUC solution enables organizations to fully capitalize on their mobility initiatives and IT departments to redefine themselves as true business enab
Keeping data secure in a mobile environment is not just a daunting challenge, but a critical requirement. Loss and theft of computers leaves sensitive data vulnerable, creating serious financial and legal risks.
