Imagine if you could see deep into the future. And way back into the past, both at the same time. Imagine having visibility of everything that had ever happened and everything that was ever going to happen, everywhere, all at once. And then imagine processing power strong enough to make sense of all this data in every language and in every dimension. Unless you’ve achieved that digital data nirvana (and you haven’t told the rest of us), you’re going to have some unknowns in your world. In the world of security, unknown threats exist outside the enterprise in the form of malicious actors, state-sponsored attacks and malware that moves fast and destroys everything it touches. The unknown exists inside the enterprise in the form of insider threat from rogue employees or careless contractors – which was deemed by 24% of our survey respondents to pose the most serious risk to their organizations. The unknown exists in the form of new devices, new cloud applications, and new data. The unk

The guide to how SQL Server 2008 end-of-service can drive IT modernization. End-of-service presents serious risks to your organisation if you don’t deal with it correctly—or worse—if you don’t deal with it at all, including the loss of access to critical security updates and Microsoft hotfixes. Also, if you don’t take action, your organisation will be exposed to potential disruption from hackers and malware. That means valuable customer data could be exposed to attack, risking monetary and reputational damage. And from a regulatory standpoint, there could be compliance issues with rules such as HIPAA, PCI, and GDPR. On the other hand, if you take well-considered action that aligns with your long-term strategy, end-of-service is also an opportunity for data estate modernisation. In this e-book, we’ll discuss how migration to Azure as part of your fix for SQL Server 2008 end-of-service solves for all these, and opens doors for the future of your data-driven business.

The increase in sophisticated, targeted security threats by both external attackers and malicious insiders have made it extremely difficult for organizations to properly protect critical and sensitive information. The task of protecting these assets has only grown harder as IT environments have become more complex and widely distributed across geographic locations and in the cloud. Many recent high-profile breaches have one thing in common: They were accomplished through the compromise of passwords. In many cases, end-user passwords are initially hacked through various social engineering techniques. Then permissions are escalated to gain access to more privileged accounts — the keys to the kingdom. This unauthorized access can easily go undetected for weeks or even months, allowing hackers to see and steal information at their convenience. Unfortunately, many IT users lack a full understanding of how privileged accounts function, as well as the risks associated with their compromise an

Things are not as they used to be in the enterprise. Today’s employees are mobile, they’re storing and accessing data in cloud apps, and are in disparate networks. While the present-day digital world has changed, the objective of data protection has not: you must still ensure the security of your critical data and intellectual property. However, the threat-centric security approach, with its static policies forces decisions about cyber activity with no insight into the broader context. The result is a disproportionate number of flagged activities, overwhelming security teams who have no way to understand the ones most worthy of investigation. Read Rethinking Data Security with a Risk-Adaptive Approach to learn how a human-centric, risk-adaptive approach can help your organization be more proactive in order to: • Automate policy enforcement to deter data loss events • Reduce the number of security alerts • Cut down on incident investigation time

Security is a looming issue for businesses. The threat landscape is increasing, and attacks are becoming more sophisticated. Emerging technologies like IoT, mobility, and hybrid IT environments now open new business opportunity, but they also introduce new risk. Protecting servers at the software level is no longer enough. Businesses need to reach down into the physical system level to stay ahead of threats. With today’s increasing regulatory landscape, compliance is more critical for both increasing security and reducing the cost of compliance failures. With these pieces being so critical, it is important to bring new levels of hardware protection and drive security all the way down to the supply chain level. Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) has a strategy to deliver this through its unique server firmware protection, detection, and recovery capabilities, as well as its HPE Security Assurance.

One of the few places that pervasive Wi-Fi is not found these days is in US Federal Government office buildings and military bases. Government IT departments explain this lack of modern technology by pointing to Information Assurance (IA) departments who block their planned deployments because of security concerns. IA departments, on the other hand, point to unclear rules, regulations, and policies around Wi-Fi use which prevent them from making informed risk decisions.

Information security—or, the lack of it—is firmly on the radar for business and IT leaders in organizations of all sizes and in every sector. Many fear that their companies are ill-prepared to prevent, detect, and effectively respond to various types of cyberattacks, and a shortage of in-house security expertise remains of widespread concern. Those are among the initial findings of the Cybersecurity Challenges, Risks, Trends, and Impacts Survey, conducted by MIT Technology Review of approx. 225 business and IT executives, in partnership with Hewlett Packard Enterprise Security Services and FireEye Inc.

Business Enterprises today need to become more agile, meet new and increasing workload and security requirements, while reducing overall IT cost and risk. To meet these requirements many companies are turning to cloud computing. To remain competitive companies need to formulate a strategy that can easily move them from traditional on-premises IT to private or public clouds. A complete cloud strategy will likely include both private and public clouds because some applications and data might not be able to move to a public cloud. Moving to the cloud should not create information silos but should improve data sharing. Any cloud strategy should make sure that it is possible to integrate on-premises, private cloud and public cloud data and applications. Furthermore, any on-premises cloud deployments must be able to easily migrate to public cloud in the future

This whitepaper explores the new SPARC S7 server features and then compares this offering to a similar x86 offering. The key characteristics of the SPARC S7 to be highlighted are: ? Designed for scale-out and cloud infrastructures ? SPARC S7 processor with greater core performance than the latest Intel Xeon E5 processor ? Software in Silicon which offers hardware-based features such as data acceleration and security The SPARC S7 is then compared to a similar x86 solution from three different perspectives, namely performance, risk and cost. Performance matters as business markets are driving IT to provide an environment that: ? Continuously provides real-time results. ? Processes more complex workload stacks. ? Optimizes usage of per-core software licenses. Risk matters today and into the foreseeable future, as challenges to secure systems and data are becoming more frequent and invasive from within and from outside.

Security has become top of mind for CIOs, and CEOs. Encryption at rest is a piece of the solution, but not a big piece. Encryption over the network is another piece, but only a small piece. These and other pieces do not fit together well; they need to unencrypt and reencrypt the data when they move through the layers, leaving clear versions that create complex operational issues to monitor and detect intrusion. Larger-scale high-value applications requiring high security often use Oracle middleware, including Java and Oracle database. Traditional security models give the data to the processors to encrypt and unencrypt, often many times. The overhead is large, and as a result encryption is used sparingly on only a few applications. The risk to enterprises is that they may have created an illusion of security, which in reality is ripe for exploitation. The modern best-practice security model is an end-to-end encryption architecture. The application deploys application-led encryption s

The term “Cloud First” was initially popularized by Vivek Kundra, who formerly held the post of White House CIO and launched this strategy for U.S. federal government IT modernization at the Cloud Security Alliance Summit 2011. The underlying philosophy of the cloud-first strategy is that organizations must initially evaluate the suitability of cloud computing to address emergent business requirements before other alternatives are considered. This paper offers guidance to help organizations establish a systematic and repeatable process for implementing a cloud-first strategy. It offers a high-level framework for identifying the right stakeholders and engaging with them at the right time to reduce the risk, liabilities, and inefficiencies that organizations can experience as a result of adhoc cloud decisions. The goal of this guidance is to help ensure that any new cloud program is secure, compliant, efficient, and successfully implements the organization’s key business initiatives.

At an unprecedented pace, cloud computing has simultaneously transformed business and government, and created new security challenges. The development of the cloud service model delivers business-supporting technology more efficiently than ever before. The shift from server to service-based thinking is transforming the way technology departments think about, design, and deliver computing technology and applications. Yet these advances have created new security vulnerabilities as well as amplify existing vulnerabilities, including security issues whose full impact are finally being understood. Among the most significant security risks associated with cloud computing is the tendency to bypass information technology (IT) departments and information officers. Although shifting to cloud technologies exclusively may provide cost and efficiency gains, doing so requires that business-level security policies, processes, and best practices are taken into account. In the absence of these standard

It is no secret; security and compliance are at the top of the list of concerns tied to cloud adoption. According to a recent 2017 Cloud Security survey to over 350,000 members of the LinkedIn Information Security Community, IT pros have general concerns about security in the cloud (33 percent), in addition to data loss and leakage risks (26 percent) and legal and regulatory compliance (24 percent)1. The number of reported breaches in enterprise datacenter environments still far exceeds the reported exposure from cloud platforms, but as businesses start using public clouds to run their mission-critical workloads, the need for enterprise-grade security in the cloud will increase. Public cloud environments require a centralized, consolidated platform for security that is built from the ground up for the cloud, and allows administrators to monitor and actively enforce security policies. The tools and techniques that worked to secure datacenter environments fail miserably in the cloud. Se

Enterprises and the threats that target them have all fundamentally evolved over the past decade. In response, the security industry has generated an enormous amount of point solutions and technologies to try and keep pace. However, for all of this innovation and change, the underlying enforcement architecture has remained largely unchanged. A new modern approach to preempting threats is required. One that augments the existing architecture instead of replaces it. This new approach brings full enterprise and business context to real-time enforcement decisions. Identity, behavior, devices, anomalies, and risk all play a real-time role. Just as importantly, enforcement and access options can be graded based on the risk to the business, and policies can actively seek out and adapt to new information.
