Consumers demand – no, expect – marketers to deliver highly relevant communications. Yet, daily headlines about security and privacy keep them on guard about use of their personal information. How do you reconcile the personalization privacy paradox?
Guest speaker, Forrester Research, Inc.’s Fatemeh Khatibloo and Bryan Throckmorton of Acxiom will offer fresh findings on customer expectations regarding privacy and examples of how companies are building transparency and trust – and differentiating themselves – with preference centers that put more control in the hands of customers.
The ongoing adoption of cloud computing by communications service providers (CSPs)
continues to fundamentally reshape their business models and technology strategies on
several levels. One such area that is garnering significant attention is the impact of the
cloud on security services. This is because security services and the vital tools they
encompass can be empowered through the adoption of a carrier cloud model. This, in turn,
better positions CSPs to meet the demands of their customers, including those in the small
to medium-size business (SMB) market segment.
The timing of this migration is optimal, since many SMBs now recognize the threats they
face and realize that given their limited IT budgets and lack of security expertise, CSPs are
well positioned to protect them from cyberattacks.
While the opportunity for CSPs is significant, many are hesitant to make a move in this area
because they want to ensure they can address SMBs’ needs and maintain control of the
service in a car
Many businesses are adopting a multi-cloud infrastructure. However, managing data and communication between multiple cloud environments is often challenging and complex. Therefore, companies often try to find a technical partner that can help them. Companies with on-premise data centers need some type of interconnect to access their products and services hosted on the cloud. The traditional Virtual Private Network (VPN) connection method usually can’t meet enterprise speed,stability, security, and compliance requirements.This whitepaper describes the challenges that companies face when building dedicated connections between different cloud environments and how Alibaba Cloud’s Express Connect is the perfect solution for them

Artificial intelligence (AI) technologies are rapidly moving beyond the realms of academia and speculative fiction to enter the commercial mainstream, with innovative products that utilize AI transforming how we access and leverage information. AI is also becoming strategically important to national defense and in securing our critical financial, energy, intelligence, and communications infrastructures against state-sponsored cyberattacks. According to an October 2016 report issued by the federal government’s National Science and Technology Council Committee on Technology (NSTCC), “AI has important applications in cybersecurity, and is expected to play an increasing role for both defensive and offensive cyber measures.” Based on this projection, the NSTCC has issued a National Artificial Intelligence Research and Development Strategic Plan to guide federally-funded research and development. The era of AI has most definitely arrived, but many still don’t understand the basics of this im
