The Impact of Virtualization on the Evolving Security Threat Landscape - IT Security teams continue to mitigate security threats with traditional security devices. But virtualization has caused the enterprise to explore new ways to extend the reach of security tools into the virtual infrastructure. With today’s distributed
application architecture that led to the growth in East-West traffic inside the hypervisor, security architects are looking for more
efficient ways to gain visibility to that traffic on behalf of their existing and next-generation security appliances, such as IDS/IPS, Web server security, integrity monitoring and malware inspection, along with several other tools.

In this White Paper, IDC discusses the reasons for ongoing data growth within organizations and examines a number of technology approaches that can help IT departments manage the costs associated with provisioning storage more effectively. Understanding what drives the growth of data, the challenges inherent with existing practices for provisioning new storage and the economic impact of the low utilization rates for storage found in most enterprises will help businesses in assessing the right approach to their next storage acquisition, in light of the change in economic dynamics and the looming threat of a storage management meltdown. IT departments have several primary concerns about storage infrastructure:
* Ensuring application and data availability
* Limiting downtime, both scheduled and unscheduled
* Ensuring data security and integrity
* Reducing the initial acquisition and ongoing costs associated with storage
* Managing storage resources and their utilization levels
* Addressing the complexities within the storage environment
All of these issues are of great concern to IT departments and, if not handled correctly, can lead to challenges for the business. Since many IT departments are concerned with these issues, we can begin to understand the many challenges faced when it is time to provision new storage capacity, be it for a new application or to cater for the growth in data from existing applications or users.

In the age of information, staying on top of emerging threats requires IT teams to leverage existing tools in innovative ways, such as applying deep packet inspection and analysis from performance monitoring solutions for advanced security forensics. Based on recent insight gathered from 322 network engineers, IT directors and CIOs around the world, 85 percent of enterprise network teams are now involved with security investigations, indicating a major shift in the role of those teams within enterprises. Large-scale and high-profile security breaches have become more common as company data establishes itself as a valuable commodity on the black market. As such, enterprises are now dedicating more IT resources than ever before to protect data integrity.

Companies today increasingly look for ways to house multiple disparate forms forms of data under the same roof, maintaining original integrity and attributes. Enter the Hadoop-based data lake. While a traditional on-premise data lake might address the immediate needs for scalability and flexibility, research suggests that it may fall short in supporting key aspects of the user experience. This Knowledge Brief investigates the impact of a data lake maintained in a cloud or hybrid infrastructure.
This paper discusses advanced technologies and tools that enable greater pipeline integrity, particularly computational pipeline monitoring (CPM) methodologies as a means to identify anomalies that signal a possible commodity pipeline release.
This paper discusses how an automated system helps pipeline operators comply with new federal regulations by safely reducing demands placed on controllers and the fatigue often associated with their tasks.

The value of conventional on-premises servers is eroding. As with all decay, it starts slowly and declines steadily. Bits and pieces of the physical server market are peeling off as businesses turn away from conventional data center and IT closet deployments in favor of cloud-based infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS). And there’s no shortage of IaaS; hosting and service-provider companies are flooding the market with low-cost access to hosted servers. The challenge for adopting businesses is leveraging hosted assets that guarantee data security and integrity with fine-grained levels of adjustable capacity, high performance and price predictability.

MBSI was providing approximately 800 virtual desktops to their employees using VMware Horizon with View and 8 VMware ESXi hosts and they were running an additional 140 virtual servers using 5 VMware ESXi hosts – all on a Tegile Hybrid SAN.
“It was shortly after we converted from ICD-9 diagnosis codes to ICD-10 codes that performance for the VDI desktops began to suffer noticeably,” explained Shawn Wood, Assistant Manager of Systems Administration, MBSI. “We have relied on Xangati for a number of years now to help us quickly see where bottlenecks are in a short period of time. It's an important part of maintaining the integrity of our infrastructure.”
