June 2013- Typical web applications are protected with single-factor authentication: a user name and password. These credentials, in addition to being difficult to manage, leave sensitive data and applications vulnerable to a variety of common attacks. As enterprises adopt more cloud applications, addressing this threat will become critical. Unlike older on-premises applications, cloud applications are accessible to anyone on the public Internet. Multifactor authentication (MFA) is designed to protect against the range of attacks that rely on ...
Organizations that do not manage file transfer processes properly can expose themselves to a variety of undesirable consequences, but what they need is a better method to manage the large file sharing process that will minimize the risk of exposing sensitive enterprise data, make it easier to manage files in compliance with corporate policies, and make secure file sharing as easy as sending files through email.

The threat of email borne attacks is greater than ever with malware volumes increasing drastically. One of the most common, and difficult to detect, email threats comes in the form of phishing and spear-phishing emails.
Historically, phishing attacks targeted end-users with attackers going after credentials to financial accounts. But modern phishing attacks have evolved toward targeting sensitive corporate data as evidenced by the high profile data breaches targeted at diverse organizations including RSA ...
The evolution of devices, integration of technology into personal lives, availability of cloud-based services and wireless evolution has moved bring-your-own-device (BYOD) from vision to reality. With demand for BYOD as high as it is, it's possible that staying with the status quo and not moving to BYOD is a bigger risk than implementing it.
This ZK Research report examines these risks, the benefits of BYOD, key IT issues when it comes to implementing ...

February 2013- While IT managers can’t predict when disaster will strike, they can take steps to ensure that service will be restored as quickly as possible when it does. Raritan’s Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery Solutions helps IT staff to quickly, efficiently and accurately troubleshoot, diagnose and repair post-disaster system failures.
February 2013- While many organizations have employed smart card identification to enhance their physical security infrastructure, data centers in particular can benefit greatly from the two-factor authentication that a smart card inherently provides to the logical realm. When seeking a smart card-enabled KVM system, choose not only a solution that fulfills the basic requirement of supporting PKI authentication to multiple servers from a single location, but also one that makes the necessary KVM feature adjustments to enable ...
To ensure the secure transmission of classified and secret information, the U.S. Government has mandated that beginning April, 2013 all access to military, intelligence, and other classified systems will require the use of a limited-access computer network Secret Internet Provider Network (SIPRNet) token.
Even after organizations upgrade their systems for SIPRNet token access and issue hardware tokens, complying with the DoD mandate still poses significant challenges: How can authorized users quickly and securely ...
January 2013- Cloud computing represents a strategic generational shift in how IT operates. It can help IT address growing pressures to be more flexible and more responsive to business needs. It can increase IT efficiency and agility, and help reduce risk of operation in organizations of all sizes. Most important, cloud computing can make IT more reliable, without sacrificing security and governance.
Moving to a cloud-computing environment is a priority for the vast majority of enterprises today. Most CIOs hope to harness the cloud to drive business transformation
through IT transformation. They're no longer just concerned with budgets or delivering products and services efficiently, but seek to lead change throughout their organizations.
Read this brief to see how cloud is the perfect vehicle for achieving this innovative success.
January 2013- A secure cloud is attainable. In fact, industry luminaries David Hunter of VMware and Arthur Coviello of EMC say clouds can be more secure than physical infrastructure. These professionals explain how to keep your cloud secure and the security solutions offered by VMware and RSA.
January 2013- In this paper, after reviewing the key requirements for an enterprise-grade cloud storage system, we introduce Red Hat Storage Server and review the architectural characteristics that make it the storage system of choice for enterprise users. We conclude with a case study exploring the real-word experiences of Intelitek, a manufacturer of high-tech educational products that successfully deployed Red Hat Storage Server for Public Cloud within AWS to meet the time-sensitive demands of its customer base.
January 2013- In January 2012, Aberdeen surveyed 106 enterprises spanning various sectors about how they're dealing with high-growth storage. This report looks at each component of hybrid cloud storage, as users of this new technology will be able to choose where to locate their data: on-premise with scale-out NAS or in the public cloud.
January 2013- Scale-out storage technologies have rapidly gained popularity over the past several years, successfully crossing the chasm from niche technology to mainstream enterprise solution. As this shift occurs, an increasing number of enterprises are seeking to understand the advantages of the newer technology when it comes to the storage of exploding amounts of unstructured data.
January 2013- Over the past ten years, enterprises have seen enormous gains in scalability, flexibility, and affordability as they migrated from proprietary, monolithic server architectures to architectures that are virtualized, open source, standardized, and commoditized. Unfortunately, storage has not kept pace with computing. The proprietary, monolithic, and scale-up solutions that dominate the storage industry today do not deliver the scalability, flexibility, and economics that modern datacenter and cloud computing environments need in a hyper-growth, virtualized, and increasingly ...

This research report highlights how organizations are implementing and benefiting from cloud-based agile software development.
December 2012- Selecting a suitable platform for server virtualization is critical to the overall success of any virtualization or private cloud project. In the past few years, new technologies and approaches to virtualization have matured and we are seeing many enterprises take a "dual vendor" strategy as part of their goal to "de-risk" their investment should one of their virtualization vendors get acquired. Concerns and challenges still persist in some virtualization environments, and this paper discusses what ...
Successful cloud computing depends on an agile and scalable network that's built on open standards and orchestrated to handle the demands of virtualization, with its intensive traffic among servers. Today's networks must be fast and flexible to meet the needs of diverse mobile users, host a constantly changing array of applications, and maintain a security perimeter.
Don't miss this overview of why a cloud-optimized network is necessary and how your organization can deploy ...
Is your company's aging network stifling business innovation? A software-defined network (SDN) enables IT to orchestrate and automatically control the network according to high-level policies, thereby simplifying managing and provisioning the network. SDN enables business systems to request services from the network directly, rather than trusting the network to guesswork.
This white paper explains how IT agility is achieved via SDN's ability to dynamically apply business logic to network behavior. Extra bonus: a ...
Networks are becoming more important than ever to enterprise IT-- they are critical to business enablement, collaboration and exploiting the benefits of cloud computing. The exploding use of mobile devices and the applications they use is focusing attention at the network's edge, which must be optimized to support new traffic, federated applications and virtual machine mobility.
