8 key pressures on security operations
IT security is increasingly at the top of a company's business agenda. This attention brings pressure to the security team that must be controlled to ensure success. The pressure felt by the team come from the ever-evolving threat landscape and the need to keep up with the latest intelligence and pressures from within the business to educate and protect. Learn how to identify and address these pressures to ensure your people are focused on protecting the business rather than keeping up with the easily controlled pressures.
Creating a culture of cyber resilience
In October 2015, UK telecoms company TalkTalk was the victim of a cyber attack that targeted the personal data of some of its customers.

Download now to find out how did TalkTalk make this happen.
Why Ignoring Incident Response Could Spell Disaster
Incident response is the last step of a solid cyber security plan, and many companies don't take that very important step. This oversight opens companies up to significant damages and their investments in up-front cyber security tools and services will have been wasted - a potential disaster waiting to happen. BAE Systems commissioned a study of global enterprises on incident readiness, and found that nearly a quarter of the organizations queried had only temporary or no incident response resources in place. Review the study and learn why ignoring incident response could be problematic, and our recommendations to drive incident response improvements for your business.
Becoming the Security Team your Business Needs
The days of sharing the number of alerts or the volume of malware you've detected are gone. In today's world, security risk is harder than ever to articulate. To become a vital part of the business, security teams need to describe threats and suggest solutions aligned to business risk. Learn how to integrate the security function into the business and educate, advice and influence activities as they relate to cyber risk implications.
Getting MSS right the First Time
As threats grow, more companies are looking to outsource elements of their security operations. And it makes sense, as many Managed Security Services Providers can offer benefits far beyond just manpower. However, benefits only emerge when the service is implemented and running correctly. The key to choosing an outsourced model for security is the partner selection process. Getting the partner selection correct determines success versus failure.

Mitigating Unknown Risks with AI
To state that the awareness of cyber security risk among senior business executives has never been higher is uncontroversial. The steady stream of high profile casualties (which last year included some of our most familiar technology behemoths among their number) and ongoing work to ensure compliance with GDPR mandates means that, among C level executives, awareness of the whole issue of cyber security has probably never been higher.
Next-generation anti-malware testing for dummies
For decades, the entire anti-malware industry has been built on a reactionary model: A system, also referred to as "patient-zero," must be infected with malware before it can be detected and prevented. Today, the reactive approach is the anti-malware industry's greatest weakness. This whitepaper explains why you need to test different solutions for yourself, just as you would with any other major security investment.
Using Artificial Intelligence to transform security

Better Security, Fewer Resources: Cylance Bolsters Endpoint Protection Without PC Performance Impact or Incremental Costs
When you consider the number of headlines that appear on a regular basis about major data breaches — despite ongoing increases in security technology spending by organizations — you have to come to the conclusion that something isn't working. But now, there is an alternative. Proactive security solutions that prevent attacks, and identify threats before they strike, bring about a new level of security, performance, and cost savings. They are capable of keeping up with attackers and malware writers and stopping their attacks before they have any real impact. Download now to find out more.
Maths vs Malware
In order to keep up with modern attackers, security technologies need to evolve alongside them, without relying on human intervention. That's where math and machine learning have the advantage. If we can objectively classify ‘good' files from ‘bad' based on mathematical risk factors, then we can teach a machine to make the appropriate decisions on these files in real time. A math and machine learning approach to computer security can fundamentally change the way we understand, categorize, and control execution of every file. Download now to find out more.
Prevention vs. Detect and Respond: The Risk of Letting Malware Execute
The security industry has come a long way in defending against malicious attacks. However, in the rush to create quick, easy, out-of-the-box solutions, the industry has gotten stuck in a vicious signature circle: Vendors develop new solutions, malware authors find techniques for defeating them, then the security industry designs another solution, leading to even more bypasses and attacks.

Ransomware Prevention & Remediation: Don't be the next victim
Not all ransomware is created equal. As soon as one variant is released, a host of ‘copy-cat' variants emerge, and some of them use entirely different encryption algorithms and key-exchanges, while others still, use new command and control infrastructures or different attack vectors. In the unfortunate case an organization needs to call in IR services, it is important to demand experienced responders armed with a structured process and custom-built tools so these types of determinations can be made quickly in order to move to rapid containment.

4 reasons hyper-converged solutions are key to IT transformation
ESG survey reveals the key benefits of infrastructure convergence for IT Transformation. In an ESG survey, 85% of ITDMs said they've deployed, or plan to deploy, hyper-converged systems. Here's how hyper-converged helped organizations on their IT transformation journeys.
Digital transformation drives new IT infrastructure requirements
Technology adoption has continually evolved from the mainframes and dumb terminals of the 1st Platform to the mobile, social, cloud, and big data and analytic technologies of the 3rd Platform. These 3rd Platform technologies are enabling a transformation of fundamental business models that are at the core of all organizations. As organizations leverage 3rd Platform technologies to enhance customer engagement via mobile apps, new datastreams are created that provide real-time feedback on their satisfaction as end consumers. This gives organizations an opportunity to enhance the very customer relationships on which the business is based and allows enterprises to begin focusing their energy on improving customer outcomes. These outcomes will be based not on a point in time but across the full life cycle of a product or service in such a way that real-time feedback is continually captured. This datastream accelerates innovation and drives continuous improvement to the product/service delivery model at the heart of a modern business. As organizations transform themselves digitally, business resiliency improves significantly and business operations become more reliable.

AI in IT Service Management
Today's CIOs, CEOs have started Artificial Intelligence(AI) pilot experiments in their organizations. Service desk handles different types of routine and non-routine tasks on a day to day basis. Gartner reports that IT organizations spend 66 percent of their resources on day-to-day operations, in "keeping the lights on" activities. End users who are millennials and Gen Z demand better experience. Artificial Intelligence, AI technologies leverage the power of data to draw predictions and automate processes to meet customers' expectations.

However, the problem has arisen where there is no clear definition of Digital Transformation; there is a lot speculation of what it means as a concept. SDI defines Digital Transformation as the term given to the implementation of catalytic technologies, frameworks, and methodologies designed to improve efficiency, productivity, and customer experience.

10 steps to protect your business against Cyberattack
With the cybersecurity landscape continuing to change and expand by the day. It is now more important than ever before, that companies deal with the threat of cyberattacks proactively rather than reactively.
Securing the print infrastructure is critical to digital transformation

The Retailer's Guide to Bluetooth® LE Indoor Location Services
Location-based mobile marketing is a boon to every marketer tasked with delivering the right message to the right person at the right time. After all, there's no better time to reach prospective customers than when they are nearby. And there's no better way to provide personalised, targeted information than by combining what you already know about them with their current location inside your establishment.

It uses geofencing technology to trigger activities, such as push notifications, when a mobile device enters or leaves a virtual geographic boundary. However, GPS does not work when it comes to indoor location services. That is why a new technology, Bluetooth® Low Energy (BLE), has emerged. Download now to learn the benefits and efficiencies of deploying Bluetooth® LE.

Unlocked untapped data with AI and analytics
Having data is valuable but knowing how to uncover it and interpret it is even more valuable. Computing surveyed 150 business decision makers from a wide spectrum of industry in order to establish their attitudes about the value of unstructured data and what they hoped to achieve from its analysis. Half of the respondents in the survey reported that most of their data was unstructured and most people were aware that their situation was not ideal. And most respondents wanted to uncover customer insight through their unstructured data.
Adding AI to analytics
Research reveals a strong business appetite for the next-gen analytics. This Computing research report examines what IT decision makers think AI represents for their business analytics and the impact they expect it to have, both in the workplace and more broadly. We also look at what companies are doing to embrace the technologies of AI, where and how they are putting those technologies to use and at barriers to adoption they are looking to address.

Knowing the unknowns of cloud service costs
For senior IT professionals, one of the biggest challenges in moving workloads to the cloud is controlling costs. Tracking and managing how the business is using this array of cloud services can be a complicated task. Not only must they have oversight of those services staff have had explicitly approved, there are also other factors that can obscure costs such as contractor usage and Shadow IT. This breadth of service demands has subsequent cost implications due to the consumption-based nature of cloud solutions. In this guide we discuss the practical steps you can take to coordinate budgeting, usage, and costs across your organisation, keeping cloud costs as visible and predictable as possible. Download now to learn more.
How out-tasking can bring flexibility to IT service management
Outsourcing refers to giving full management of your IT services to an external service provider. This is generally done on a multi-year contract basis and means that the provider has full responsibility for managing your IT. Adopting an out-tasking approach to IT services gives you the flexibility to decide just how much control you want to have. Day-to-day involvement means your team will build up a range of internal capabilities that allows them to better align supply with demand for IT services.
Practical guide to the hybrid cloud
The hybrid cloud offers a way forward for organisations who seek the benefits of cloud computing, including economies of scale, self-service and automation. In this whitepaper, Proact suggests that a cloud journey should begin with adapting IT as a Service (ITaaS) as a unified model for IT delivery. It greatly facilitates a flexible, stepwise approach to cloud migration, guided by common business sense. This guide addresses the typical issues organisations currently are facing when considering a migration of their IT infrastructure to cloud platforms and services and how to overcome these challenges.
7 lessons for defining your cloud strategy
An increase in organisations have chosen cloud service in order to increase business, agility and reduce costs. Still, many companies have been disappointed and their expectations not met. Instead of becoming more agile, they have been in discussions with their provider about unexpected cost, have had to deal with adjustments to business processes and manage dissatisfied staff that have had their hopes raised when the company finally moved to the cloud.
Out-task or outsource? A guide to understanding which is right for your organisation
Among the various considerations an IT manager must make is to what degree services are retained in-house, or handed to one or more providers to offer specialist support. As the needs of the business evolve, IT operations need the agility to adjust accordingly. This guide focuses on whether to outsource the IT function within your business, or to retain key parts in-house while out-tasking non-essential functions to one or multiple service providers. Download now to learn what decisions to make to help your business stay agile and competitive, while also ensuring requirements around compliance and cost-effectiveness are met.
The changing role of the IT manager
IT managers face rapid changes both in terms technology and business, forcing them to make choices fast, sometimes without knowing what the real consequences are. Moreover, there is a lot of pressure on the IT manager from the business to innovate and offer flexible services to end-users. One major challenge for the IT manager is staff. More and more IT organisations experience a skills gap. IT stacks have become broader, deeper and more complex and in the meantime it has become increasingly difficult to get and keep skilled staff. Furthermore, the better skilled workers have a higher labour cost, and the chance of employees looking to see where the grass is greener is increasing. Download now to learn more on the various insights into this changing role and the practical tips on how to take advantage of both of these challenging and exciting trends.

Stopping email fraud
Email fraud can be hard to detect with conventional cyberdefences. That's because it is highly targeted and sent in low volumes aimed at specific people or job roles. Learn how a multilayered approach can solve your entire email security challenge by stopping advanced attacks and mitigating their impact.
Stopping Email Fraud
Email fraud, sometimes called business email compromise (BEC), is a popular form of cyber attack. Cybercriminals can easily spoof executives and business partners to trick people into sending money and other valuable information. This growing threat has cost victims more than $5.3 billion since the FBI began tracking it in late 2013. The average attack nets about $130,000. Partner spoofing attacks, where a fraudster pretends to be an organisation's trusted vendor, are also growing. These attacks are sophisticated and highly targeted. They exploit people, not technology. And stopping them requires a new people-centred approach.

Pure Storage

Primary Flash Market Evolving to Next-Generation Architectures
As the information technology (IT) industry enters the cloud era, where hybrid IT is the dominant deployment model in organizations of all sizes, the capabilities of primary all-flash arrays (AFAs) will need to evolve to handle cloud scale and agility. Datacenters of all types and sizes will be using AFAs as general-purpose storage platforms more and more and will be increasing the workload densities that these systems must support. A key challenge is that current-generation AFAs have fundamental bottlenecks that both limit their consolidation and cloud-scale capabilities and create architectural risk as future memory technologies emerge. A next generation of AFAs — what could be called cloud-era flash arrays — will be best positioned to meet these requirements cost-effectively, will employ flashdriven rather than flash-optimized architectures, and will have NVMe rather than SCSI technology at the heart of their designs. This Technology Spotlight examines the evolving primary flash array market with a particular emphasis on what next-generation flash-driven enterprise storage architectures will look like. It also looks at the role Pure Storage, with its FlashArray//X, plays in this strategically important market.
The 3-stage Journey to the all-flash cloud
Enterprise IT leaders are facing critical decisions on how to best deploy data center and cloud resources to enable digital transformation. The advantages of cloud models are beyond compelling — they are fundamental to delivering the agility, cost efficiencies and simplified operations necessary for modern IT workloads and applications at scale. Cloud computing and all-flash storage are two of the most important innovations driving next-generation IT initiatives. While it may seem at first that these are parallel trends, in reality they are inextricably intertwined. Without the benefits of all-flash storage — driving new levels of performance, agility and management simplicity — enterprises would not be able to modernise their infrastructures to deliver cloud services. The truth is, even in today's cloud era, enterprise IT leaders continue to require the power, control, security and peace of mind afforded by owning their own infrastructure. But to achieve digital transformation, data centers must deliver the benefits offered by the most innovative and compelling public cloud services. Download now to find out how to evolve to the all-flash cloud — and how your organisation can benefit at every stage in the journey.
How to Achieve Breakthrough Business Continuity
In today's environment, business continuity is a necessity. As organisations embrace digital transformation and turn to IT for almost all most critical operations, downtime can be crippling. Those that are able to tolerate technology failures transparently—so the business remains up and running—can drive dramatic gains in competitive advantage, customer engagement and business innovation. However, achieving the highest levels of business continuity, with zero recovery point objectives (RPOs) and recovery time objectives (RTOs), has been possible only for the largest companies and their most business-critical applications. This white paper discusses a new active/active stretched cluster technology that allows companies of all sizes to achieve the highest levels of business continuity without the costs and complexities that have typically marked this type of deployment in the past.
Harnessing the Critical Enabler for Digital Transformation in Financial Institutions
Digital transformation remains the key priority for virtually every financial institution in the world. This transformation is driven by a host of drivers and challenges that financial institutions are facing today. One such driver is changing customer requirements and a desire for 24 x 7 access through a channel of choice in real time. Another is the rising cost of doing business caused by tougher regulation, ageing legacy IT, and a generally tougher business environment. Another key point for financial institutions is the upkeep and maintenance of legacy infrastructure, while facing the challenge to power new applications in the front and middle office. For instance, the immediate access to a consolidated data repository is an important enabler to deliver crucial insights at the right time. This is amplified by the accelerating growth of data volumes, the need for a more contextual and personalized customer experience augmented by analytics, and the need for financial institutions to enable greater productivity for employees who depend on fast and consistent flow of data. Lastly, the explosion of data — both internally and externaly — is a massive challenge for financial institutions. Dealing with a variety of different formats, degrees of cleanliness, and sources has made data management a key priority. In this white paper, IDC will discuss the impact of flash storage as a critical enabler for digital transformation in financial institutions, enabling the delivery of a superior user experience for customers and staff, increasing security and compliance, powering new analytics capabilities, and dealing with growing data volumes while reducing the overall total cost of ownership.
Business Case for All-Flash Arrays When Integrating Flash into the Cloud
This IDC white paper discusses the state of enterprise storage with respect to the evolving cloud storage market, explains why flash storage is needed in these environments, and then discusses what Pure Storage, a leading all-flash array vendor, brings to the table in this area. The document concludes with a short service provider case study. Download now to learn more.
The 3 stage journey to the All- Flash Cloud
Cloud computing and all-flash storage are two of the most important innovations driving next-generation IT initiatives. While it may seem at first that these are parallel trends, in reality they are inextricably intertwined. Without the benefits of all-flash storage — driving new levels of performance, agility and management simplicity — enterprises would not be able to modernize their infrastructures to deliver cloud services. It is no coincidence that the largest hyperscale cloud providers rely on all-flash storage solutions as their storage foundation. Download to find out more.

Do your SMB customers understand the need for a layered approach to cybersecurity?
It's a big issue in IT Services right now - how do you convince your customers that they need to invest more heavily in IT Security? Many business owners believe that their companies don't provide valuable-enough targets for cybercriminals because they don't have thousands of employees or millions of customers. The reality, however, is quite the opposite. SMBs have information and credentials that are indeed valuable for cybercriminals, including: employee and customer records, access to business financial information including bank accounts, and access to larger companies and their networks through the supply chain. In this VIPRE e-book we look at driving home the true risk of cyberattack for SMBs and how a layered security approach is the best defence against cybercriminals.

Security in the Era of Intelligent Work
Devices, documents and data are the life force of every business, and never more so than in the face of the continuous evolution of the digital age. However, while this newly technological era presents untold opportunities for businesses, it creates nearly as many for cyber-criminals.

How outdated software is breaching businesses
Many of the cybersecurity breaches we see in the media are often caused by the failure to implement the latest vulnerability patches or update out-of-date software and hardware which is a major cybersecurity risk faced by many organisations. Updating an organisation's systems is often expensive, time consuming and seen as a resource strain. Especially for businesses that are understaffed, underfunded and under pressure. Often the need to update is only driven home when the inevitable cyber-attacks occur.
Busting cyber myths
Organisations must be aware of others in their community and how they're acting when it comes to cybersecurity. Some of the biggest headline-grabbing breaches of recent years have involved third parties or organisations subordinate to the entity that was hacked. Criminals are opportunists who seek out the easiest routes to attack a target. Often this means seeking out vulnerabilities in supply chains or third-party apps to exploit and in turn find a way to attack their true target.
Third-party risks
With the news that several big brands have suffered data breaches as a result of compromised third-parties, organisations need to know what third-party risks are? Poor due diligence has resulted in some of the biggest data breaches. Just because a partner says that they're secure doesn't mean it is so. It always pays to check for yourself.
The future is automated security testing
Automated security testing allows channel partners to provide cybersecurity to their clients, effectively and efficiently as well as providing a steady stream of regular income. With the issue of cybercrime growing as more and more organisations do business online, channel partners need to be able to deliver a solution that can both be great value to their clients and provide regular revenue for themselves.

You're in the cloud - but what now?
To gain an understanding of the use of cloud in modern organisations, Computing surveyed 109 IT leaders, including CIOs, IT directors and IT managers, with almost a third of these responses coming from senior technology executives at companies employing more than 2,000 people. The responses covered a broad range of sectors. What we discovered is both the scale of opportunity associated to the cloud and a range of challenges that still need to be overcome for many organisations to make the most of on-demand technology services. The cloud, in short, assumes many different forms, each of which has a different use case. CIOs and their business peers must understand both the technical varieties of the cloud and the business use cases to which it can be put.
