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

Customers have grown accustomed to high speeds and reliable connectivity. One second of network delay when accessing website, mobile app, or application service can increase your bounce rate and even decrease your customer’s trust in your brand.
The typical business pain points per the above scenario are always like:
Latency – While, latency problems caused by geographic distance are impossible to solve on the public Internet;
Availability – Packet loss and complaints from customers can prevent you from increasing your user base;
Cost - The growth of your user base and your business needs both outpace your IT budget.
Security - Connections over the public Internet are vulnerable to DDoS attacks and other threats.

Read the IDC whitepaper to learn more about balancing your investment in new and existing systems.
Modern application architectures such as microservices are changing the way that modern enterprises run their infrastructure.
Enterprises have become application-centric, investing significant effort and resources on continuous delivery goals and DevOps
practices to achieve automation of routine IT and operations tasks. And now with the emergence of containerized applications, it
is critical to re-evaluate how application services are provided across data centers and multiple cloud environments.
Software-defined architectures have transformed enterprises to become more application-centric. With application owners
seeking public-cloud-like simplicity and flexibility in their own data centers, IT teams are under pressure to reduce wait times to
Legacy load balancing solutions force network architects and administrators to purchase new hardware, manually configure
virtual services, and inefficiently overprovision these appliances. Simultaneously, new infrastructure choices are also enabling IT
teams to re-architect applications into autonomous microservices from monolithic or n-tier constructs. These transformations
are forcing organizations to rethink load balancing strategies and application delivery controllers (ADCs) in their infrastructure.

Infusing communications into business processes is not a simple task, as legacy deployment models for unified communications and the contact center are far too rigid to offer the required agility for digital organizations. To achieve success in the digital era, businesses must evolve their communications to a cloud delivery model. Dive into this white paper from ZK Research to discover the best path forward on your cloud transformation journey.
Cloud technology is quickly becoming the default at companies of all sizes. Nine out of ten companies have already moved at least some of their applications or computing infrastructure to the cloud or plan to do so in the next 12 months. IT spending reflects this trend, with the average investment in cloud rising nearly 36% from two years ago. What’s more, cloud adoption isg rowing across all delivery models, with examples of every kind of application and workload on every kind of platform, according to a recent IDG survey. The survey results represent the practices and opinions of 550 IT decision-makers whose organizations have either already adopted cloud technology or plan to do so within the next three years.
Application Delivery Controllers understand applications and optimize server performance - offloading compute-intensive tasks that prevent servers from quickly delivering applications. Learn how ADCs have taken over where load balancers left off.
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.
The proliferation of communications channels has set expectations around cost and productivity
benefits. Unified Communications (UC) is proffered as a way of helping bring them all together, but
companies struggle to justify the business case for it. Against this background, how important is UC as an approach to streamlining communications, and how can businesses exploit it?
As organizations have improved service delivery, they have also turned their focus to presenting business value more positively. These organizations are beginning to develop true BSM systems in two ways: by understanding the metrics that successful businesses employ to determine the value of IT, and by linking these metrics and associated business services to IT infrastructure components.
Managing service delivery in todayís complex and dynamic business environments demands new and different approaches from IT. The explosive growth and the rate of change of information has brought particularly daunting challenges for IT that have contributed to incredibly complex underlying infrastructures. To get a true picture of all of the components necessary to support an IT or Business Service, you must access and bring together data that resides in disparate data silos throughout the enterprise.
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.
As IT evolves towards a more business-aligned position, it must seek out new ways of working that support more effective operations, service creation, and service delivery. These include technologies, processes, and a culture that supports higher levels of accountability, as well as more dynamic responsiveness to business needs.
Effective workload automation that provides complete management level visibility into real-time events impacting the delivery of IT services is needed by the data center more than ever before. The traditional job scheduling approach, with an uncoordinated set of tools that often requires reactive manual intervention to minimize service disruptions, is failing more than ever due to todays complex world of IT with its multiple platforms, applications and virtualized resources.
For many organizations, managing and delivering the knowledge contained within documents is difficult or impossible due to technological disparity. Conventional approaches to knowledge
management work within the constraints of disparate platforms, applications, and output devices, and fail to address technological disparity.
