Digital Signs are now so common that people take them for granted. They help you drop off your children at school, locate the right gate at the airport, decide what to order for lunch, or find out what’s on sale at your favorite retailer. They provide information, increase sales, keep people safe or simply offer a welcome and entertaining distraction. Any business that wants smart, cost-effective communications with customers, prospects, visitors or employees, digital signs are the way to go.
Today, businesses large and small are investing in a new generation of digital touchpoints—digital signs, kiosks, POS (point-of-sale) solutions, vending machines, intelligent shelf labels and more—to engage customers, convey information and hopefully create a sale. Rely on Intel® Retail Client Manager (Intel® RCM) to manage digital content across consumer touchpoints, create valuable consumer experiences and sales opportunities.

This paper outlines the five simple steps you can take to help prevent sensitive information leakage from your organization, while keeping up with the rapidly evolving regulatory environment. The average employee sends and receives about 29,000 emails per year. One in every 20 of those emails contains “risky” data – from sensitive attachments to social security numbers to protected health information to valuable corporate secrets that set your organization apart. All of this risky data can become toxic to your company if it’s hacked or suffers a breach – causing reputational damage, customer loss, heavy fines, and decreased competitive edge. SilverSky offers a game-changing Email Data Loss Prevention (DLP) solution, run on IBM SoftLayer, which brings content-aware policy capabilities normally reserved for complex enterprise DLP solutions.

With the massive growth of data from the Internet of Things (IOT) to collaboration to compliance, users are demanding low-cost, flexible, easy to scale, and simple to manage data center storage solutions. Software-defined object storage delivers on these demands by capitalizing on industry standard x86 infrastructure and storage technologies to deploy more economic and manageable storage solutions compared to legacy storage architectures.
Cloudian HyperStore is an example of the new breed of software-designed storage. Cloudian HyperStore allows companies to build their own public or private cloud storage infrastructure including enterprise IT organizations, cloud service providers, or cloud hosting providers. This document gathers the essential information about a scale-out storage reference architecture and a real-world example from the Cloudian support organization that uses the Cloudian HyperStore® appliances that are powered by Lenovo hardware.
Virtualization provides organizations with many costs savings and significant business agility. One virtualization technology that many organizations take advantage of is called virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI). VDI empowers employees and employers with many benefits, no matter the size of the organization. One such benefit with VDI is the ability to provide centrally managed desktop environments to employees on any device. In doing so, the organization can rest assured that information is always accessed and managed in a secure fashion – regardless of where the user is accessing information from.
In the last few years there have been radical changes in the ways organizations operate and people work. Explosion of data, increased mobile demands, and the globalization of business in general are making 24/7 access to people and information the norm. Sophisticated cyber attacks are requiring robust systems security designed to counter new threats. And velocity is now essential when delivering new IT services.

The Challenge - Like all large institutions, the University of Glasgow must protect itself against the ever increasing rise in IT security threats. The university uses an IDS (Intrusion Detection System) system to alert it to potential threats but with 30,000 users it is faced with a
huge problem of scale.
Chris Edwards, Information Security Coordinator at the university, said, “The cyber criminals will keep upping their game and it’s up to us to keep pace with them. Using IDS to monitor our network traffic is similar in many ways to using an antivirus program on a PC. But we have to be able to do this concurrently for 30,000 users. This means we have to monitor huge volumes of internet traffic.”

NetFlow was introduced on Cisco routers as a way to monitor packets as they enter and exit networking device interfaces in
order to gain insight and resolve congestion. Typical information contained in a NetFlow record reveals traffic source and destination as well as protocol or application, time stamps, and number of packets. Although NetFlow was initially not on a standards track, it has now been superseded by the Internet Protocol Flow Information eXport (IPFIX), which is based on the NetFlow Version 9 implementation, and is on the IETF standards track with RFC 5101, RFC 5102.

Cloud has revolutionized computing from the desktop to the data center and, perhaps even more meaningfully, down to the mobile devices we work and play with. The cloud approach of scalable shared infrastructure has allowed customers to consider both purchasing and deploying information technology resources in more flexible, cost-effective ways. They’ve saved money and invested in only the capacity they needed and are enjoying the benefits of consolidated infrastructure. Virtualization has been at the epicenter of this revolution and has enabled racks of disparate hardware to become one. But the move to virtualization has not come without bumps in the road.
