Microsoft Exchange Server has been a crucial technological breakthrough in advanced corporate communication systems. Companies who utilize an enterprise-class email server like Exchange believe that email is mission critical, and value the productivity it enables. But an in-house migration to Exchange 2007 from an earlier version of Exchange or another email program will not be an easy task. Complexity, time and cost issues loom large over the IT department and are causing IT directors to search for an alternative solution.
Enterprise chief information security officers (CISOs) are seeking ways to leverage existing security
investments to bridge the divide between largely siloed security systems. The focus is on reducing
the number of consoles needed to manage the security infrastructure. Network security vendors have
a significant role to play in bridging the communication gap between these systems. The creation of a
unified defense architecture enables threat data exchange between existing security systems. It helps
automate the process of raising an organization's security posture when a security infrastructure
component detects a threat.
The following questions were posed by Fortinet to Robert Ayoub, program director in IDC's Security
Products program, on behalf of Fortinet's customers.
Headquartered in Chicago, Bean Suntory owns over 70 premium spirit brands from whiskey and rum, to vodka, cognac, tequila, and gin. Beam Suntory generates $4 billion in annual revenues.
But that revenue was in danger.
The company’s production software, Wonderware, which controls embedded systems driving almost every critical production process, was underpinned by ageing hardware. If it failed, production would come to a grinding—and expensive—halt.Every hour of downtime results in lost production, which can amount to millions of dollars in losses,” says Sanjay Kirtikar, Director Digital Technologies, Beam Suntory.
To ensure Wonderware never failed, Beam Suntory implemented hyperconverged clusters integrated with Nutanix Enterprise Cloud Platform software
The results were instant and outstanding. Beam Suntory expects a 25-35% cost benefit from lower support and maintenance efforts, and a 50% reduction in power usage.

Your enterprise performance management systems like Hyperion are mission critical. If you’re a Hyperion administrator, manager, or even a finance director, you know a crash, bug, or performance issue can delay reporting and take hours or even days to fix. Fortunately, keeping Hyperion running smoothly – and catching these issues before they happen – is not as impossible or time-consuming as you might believe. Join us for this webinar as we explore and debunk 9 misconceptions of Hyperion Performance Management that are keeping you from effectively managing your platform so financial processes run smoothly.
This white paper examines the compelling business and technical case for centralizing administration in Microsoft's Active Directory, describes how Centrify's integrated architecture enables you to extend Active Directory to your non-Microsoft platforms, and describes the Centrify Suite's unique benefits.
This white paper examines the compelling business and technical case for centralizing administration in Microsoft's Active Directory, using Centrify's DirectControl to extend Active Directory authentication and access control to your UNIX, Linux and Mac OS systems and applications, and using Centrify's DirectAudit to log user activity to provide you a clear picture of end user actions on all UNIX and Linux systems.
This white paper examines the challenges of migrating NIS deployments to a central repository, and explains in detail how a combination of Microsoft Active Directory and Centrify DirectControl can deliver a cost-effective solution that strengthens security while improving IT efficiency.

As organizations become more distributed, directors of network security teams must provide connectivity to new locations, applications and systems at a moment’s notice. What’s more, protecting users and data from rising threats is changing the demands for network performance, manageability and security.
In this session, we discuss how distributed organizations are enabling new locations, both physical and virtual, to be brought up quickly and managed consistently. We then examine how to take advantage of commodity broadband instead of traditional leased lines, implement business security processes seamlessly across all locations, and how to interactively monitor remote environments.

The e-Learning industry has grown tremendously since the early days of computers and the Internet. Today there are lots of products and services out in the market place from which to choose. This white paper will provide some basic information to help you as you begin your research into e-Learning and learning management systems. The document is not meant to be the complete source of information on e-Learning nor will these guidelines be suitable for every single situation. This white paper has been created as a learning aid help you get started. These findings represent the research, experience, and techniques gleaned from working in e-Learning since its infancy in the late 80’s to today. At the end of the paper, Bob Goldschneider, Director of Business Development at SyberWorks, Inc., will provide a summary and closing remarks.
Driven by demands to unify and extend protection across a broad spectrum of threats, EMA sees in this trend the rise of Converged Network Security (CNS) systems that integrate a wide range of capabilities and break down silos in network defense more than ever before. Scott Crawford, Managing Research Director, Security and Risk Management at EMA Research highlights specific examples of the ways in which these converged security systems put today’s more advanced capabilities to work in practical application. The IBM Security Network Protection XGS 5000 is profiled as an example of this trend, delivering not only intelligence driven, application aware defense against a variety of threats, but also the extensibility required to equip today’s organizations to confront whatever may come tomorrow.
Meet-me services like Blue Jeans® and Zoom® support only one model: a prescheduled, “meet-me” conference with long, numerical dial strings and access codes.
They don’t offer a “connected experience.” You have to separately manage and integrate video systems, resulting in an inferior, disjointed user experience that is more challenging to manage.
Meet-me models can’t match Lifesize. Everything else is a group meeting to which participants call in and wait for everyone else. There’s no directory dialing, no point-to-point calling, no presence status and no call escalation.
The only thing consistent about meet-me services is that they copy the cumbersome user experience of the audio conferencing model—dial, enter code, enter ID, wait …
