The Secure Data Center is a place in the network (PIN) where a company centralizes data and performs services for business. Data centers contain hundreds to thousands of physical and virtual servers that are segmented by applications, zones, and other methods. This guide addresses data center business flows and the security used to defend them. The Secure Data Center is one of the six places in the network within SAFE. SAFE is a holistic approach in which Secure PINs model the physical infrastructure and Secure Domains represent the operational aspects of a network.

APTs can be particularly harmful to financial service organizations, raising the need for early detection of malicious intruders. This white paper describes three use cases that illustrate how Illusive’s technology provides a nimble, easy-to-manage solution that guards the integrity of SWIFT services, defends legacy, custom, or “untouchable” applications and systems, and helps manage cyber risk during periods of disruptive business change.
We all know that employee engagement is important. Employees that are aligned with their goals, aware of their performance gaps, and motivated to improve, perform better. It’s stating the obvious. The big question is how to get there, and whether technology can help us do this at scale. This is where most digital motivation initiatives hit a wall. A new breed of next generation performance and feedback systems are attempting to do just that: creating and maintaining a continuous personalized conversation between employees and managers with regards to performance, development and goals.
In online marketing, personalizing messages and promotional activities has been possible for some time. It is called “Marketing Automation”. Hubspot, one of the pioneers in this field, defines it thus: “software that exists with the goal of automating marketing actions. Many marketing departments have to automate repetitive tasks such as emails, social media, and other website actions. The technology of
An effective rolling forecast is important to estimate long term financial plans. Every organization undertakes this process as a finance activity. However, when the forecasted data is examined on its effectiveness for decision making, more often than not the results are disappointing, and the rolling forecast process needs to be redefined. This paper talks about effective rolling forecasts that utilize resources, technologies, processes, and business intelligence to deliver actionable insights. A best-in-class matured RF process will enable CFOs to deliver great results through increased revenue and cost reductions, and create new benchmarks for the organization.

This report details seven case studies of attacks that were intercepted and neutralized by cyber defense AI, including insider threat, ransomware, and IoT attacks.
While all threat scenarios were distinct, some fast-moving and others slow and stealthy, in all cases the subtle indicators of suspicious activity were only detectable using Darktrace AI, which learns what is normal for the business environment and autonomously responds to attacks – before damage is done.
Intent-based networking is the difference between a network that needs continuous attention and one that simply understands what your organization needs and makes it happen. It’s the difference between doing thousands of tasks manually and having an automated system that helps you focus on business goals. Cisco® Digital Network Architecture (Cisco DNA™) is your team’s bridge to an intentbased network. It is an open, extensible, software-driven architecture that accelerates and simplifies your enterprise network operations, while lowering costs and reducing your risk. Only Cisco provides a single network fabric that is powered by deep intelligence and integrated security to deliver automation and assurance across your entire organization at scale. Cisco DNA gives IT time back from time-consuming, repetitive network configuration tasks so you can focus on the innovation your business needs. Cisco DNA automation and assurance are built on a Software-Defined Networking (SDN) controller, ri
WAN edge infrastructure is changing rapidly as I&O leaders responsible for networking face dynamic business requirements, including new application architectures and on-premises and cloud-based deployment models. I&O leaders can use this research to identify vendors that best fit their requirements. By year-end 2023, more than 90% of WAN edge infrastructure refresh initiatives will be based on virtualized customer premises equipment (vCPE) platforms or software-defined WAN (SD-WAN) software/appliances versus traditional routers (up from less than 40% today).
Powerful IT doesn’t have to be complicated. Hyperconvergence puts your entire virtualized infrastructure and advanced data services into one integrated powerhouse. Deploy HCI on an intelligent fabric that can scale with your business and you can hyperconverge the entire IT stack. This guide will help you: Understand the basic tenets of hyperconvergence and the software-defined data center; Solve for common virtualization roadblocks; Identify 3 things modern organizations want from IT; Apply 7 hyperconverged tactics to your existing infrastructure now.
With the maturing of the all-flash array (AFA) market, the established market leaders in this space are turning their attention to other ways to differentiate themselves from their competition besides just product functionality. Consciously designing and driving a better customer experience (CX) is a strategy being pursued by many of these vendors.This white paper defines cloud-based predictive analytics and discusses evolving storage requirements that are driving their use and takes a look at how these platforms are being used to drive incremental value for public sector organizations in the areas of performance, availability, management, recovery, and information technology (IT) infrastructure planning.

Cisco has recently unveiled its new intent-based networking strategy, called "The Network. Intuitive." The goal of intent-based networking is to allow greater levels of automation, security integration, and centralized manageability within a software subscription orientation. Intent-based networking is underpinned by Software-Defined Access (SDA), Cisco's automation engine built upon the company's Digital Network Architecture (DNA), which automates network segmentation, policy enforcement, and troubleshooting. Other core components of the announcement include a refresh of Cisco Catalyst switches, a new licensing model for infrastructure, and an all-in-one management console called DNA Center.

What if defenders could see the future? If they knew an attack was coming, they could stop it, or at least mitigate its impact and help ensure what they need to protect most is safe. The fact is, defenders
can see what’s on the horizon.
Many clues are out there—and obvious.
The Cisco 2018 Annual Cybersecurity Report presents our latest security industry advances designed to help organizations and
users defend against attacks. We also look at the techniques and strategies that adversaries use to break through those defenses
and evade detection.
The report also highlights major findings from the Cisco 2018 Security Capabilities Benchmark Study, which examines the security posture of enterprises and their perceptions of their preparedness to defend against attacks.

A famous architect once said that the origin of architecture was defined by the first time “two bricks were put together well.” And the more bricks you have, the more important putting them together well becomes. The same holds true in our data centers. The architecture of our compute, storage and network devices has always been important, but as the demands on our IT infrastructures grow, and we add more “bricks,” the architecture becomes more critical.

Cloud computing is transforming IT in terms of how services are delivered, how infrastructure is deployed and managed, and how IT organizations structure themselves. For the purposes of this study, Forrester is defining a cloud solution as having three major characteristics: “self-service access, full automation of processes and policies, and metering and tracking of usage.”1 It then becomes a question of whether you manage your cloud(s) yourself, outsource it, or use a hybrid combination of private and public cloud resources.
