As more and more businesses have moved their business operations online, the Internet has become an attractive place to conduct disruptive and criminal activities. Cyber criminals are increasingly using distributed denial of service (“DDoS”) attacks as the tool of choice to wreak havoc to online operations.
The enterprise today is changing rapidly. The intersection of cloud, mobility, social networking and the Internet, what analyst firm Gartner calls the, “Nexus of Forces” is making most medium and large enterprises rethink their enterprise mobile strategies. Employees arebringing their own devices, downloading their own applications and creating their own IT.

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.

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.
The Digital Security and Surveillance eZine is about channel partners extending their expertise in Internet Protocol to a whole new arena. For these partners, security goes well beyond software, firewalls, VPNs and other security offerings commonly discussed in the industry. These partners are combining networks, storage, cameras and similar technologies into full solutions designed to help protect the customer.

Are common myths about switching your business phone service to hosted Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) holding back your business? As voice, video, and data networks meld into a single user experience, solutions that integrate phone service, unified messaging, voicemail, audio and video capabilities, rich-media conferencing, and mobility solutions are in high demand.
New technologies used in Web 2.0 applications have increased the volume and complexity of network traffic internal to organizations and at Internet gateways. More than ever, it's important for businesses to deploy new methods of monitoring and controlling these Internet-based applications in order to discover and mitigate hidden security threats.
With over 60,000 new malware threats created each day, antivirus software is an essential component to IT security. But antivirus is only the beginning. According to Forrester, a single tool is not sufficient to address a particular risk area completely. That's why Faronics implements a strategy featuring multiple layers of security for enterprisewide end-point computer protection. This video describes the many features and facets that come together to make Faronics the only end-point security software vendor to offer an integrated layered security solution.
An informed IT professional needs to ensure that the antivirus solution they choose strategically matches the goals of their company IT department. In this paper, Faronics describes the role of antivirus software - but specifically how it fits into bigger layered defense security architecture. The paper examines several elements of a comprehensive strategy to protect your network, and focuses on defending the end point-user workstations, such as PCs and laptops.
These days, most well-developed organizations use a collection of several technologies, methodologies and products to protect their networks and computers from a particular threat. While no single technology guarantees security, application whitelisting covers situations not addressed by firewalls or antivirus utilities. This paper focuses on how application whitelisting can effectively be used as an important layer in your security scenario. It examines other security layers as well, and demonstrates how whitelisting compliments and augments existing defenses

The typical on-premises business environment of a decade ago called for the standard corporate rollout of strictly managed desktop PCs running Windows. And it was considered forward-looking to use similarly configured laptop computers with desktop docking stations, enabling workers to take their computers on business trips or take them home, perhaps to triage email or perform other maintenance tasks during off hours.
This decade has seen rapid changes in the technology world outside of work. We’ve seen the rise of mobile computing devices of all kinds, pervasive wireless broadband Internet access, and an explosion in mostly consumer-oriented cloud-based services. These changes have impacted IT and business computing, just as they have impacted the expectations of users.

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
