As your business grows, it’s important to consider how you can secure your assets and intellectual property, protect employees and valuable customer data—and do it easily. In this paper, we provide clear guidelines for business owners to identify a cloud-based security solution that is simple to use, eases growing pains and hardens security.
Remote and roaming workers are constantly checking email, downloading data, and staying productive. Results are their top priority—security is not. IT organizations need to keep up with these high-performers to update their security software and scan their systems for viruses without reducing their productivity. This paper looks at the security challenges posed by employees working beyond the company's secure perimeter, and proposes a transition to a cloud-based security service.
Most vendors seem to assume that small businesses have the expertise and full-time staff of a large enterprise to manage IT security. Too often for small and mid-sized businesses, this one-size-fits-all approach results in higher costs, lower productivity and more risk. In this paper, we’ll examine the inherent complexity of enterprise-class security products and the very different needs of smaller organizations. Then we’ll look at a simpler alternative: cloud-based endpoint security.
Has managing your clients become cumbersome and time consuming? Heavy bandwidth and distributed workstations got you down? Maybe it's time to switch to the next generation of antivirus with Panda's Security as a Service (SaaS).

This paper discusses the new generation of web security offerings provided by service providers in the cloud, where protection is ap¬plied at the point where the threats are being seen-that is, directed at web-based applications. In taking the protection nearer to the threats, organizations can benefit from vastly improved internet security as the threats are stopped before they ever reach the network. This paper discusses the reality of web-based threats today, and discusses the drivers for cloud-based computing and the benefits that organizations will see from use of a dedicated service provider for handling functions that are necessary, but that are not a core compe¬tence of the organization

Companies rely on the data center and IT to provide mission-critical services, like email, Web, and voice. However, assuring service delivery and reliability becomes increasingly difficult as growth in data center virtualization, remote access, cloud-based
applications, and outsourced service technologies fuel operational complexity. To improve service reliability, organizations must be able to see and manage all aspects of
performance, availability, and security related to that service.
Find out how the combination of discovery, data aggregation, correlation, out-of-the-box analytics, data management, and reporting can yield a single pane of glass into data center and IT operations and services.
The amount of data being stored is more than doubling every two years. IT departments eager to shrink data center footprints and consolidate servers and storage are preparing for a new generation of data servers. But while virtualized and cloud storage environments are expecting dramatic future growth, we have yet to widespread adoption across the board. Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE), a low cost alternative for expanding legacy SANs with minimum investment, lets customers combine Ethernet data and fibre channel data traffic into a single high-speed network. While only 9 percent of users surveyed by have already adopted FCoE , that number is expected to grow to 26 percent in the next two years. And while cloud storage is expected to skyrocket over the next decade, security concerns and application compatibility are still an issue. This Storage CRN eZine, a part of our Thought Leadership Series, will discuss the state of the virtualized storage market, the current challenges facing integrators and vendors, and the steps necessary to take to meet an expected deluge of Big Data that will need to be stored and managed down the road.
