Businesses that choose to not protect their infrastructure don’t just run the risk of a DDoS attack; they put out a welcome mat for attackers. DDoS attacks are becoming more sophisticated and destructive, and are on the rise. In a Ponemon Institute study, 65 percent of organizations had an average of three DDoS attacks between September 2011 and September 2012, costing each of these companies an estimated average of $3.5 million in
In the same survey, 71 percent of respondents realize that anti-DoS/DDoS defenses specifically are important or very important. But just how important are they to you? It should depend on what you’re protecting. What’s the cost of an hour of downtime to you, both in dollars and in value that doesn’t easily carry a price tag like productivity or reputation? Your answers should determine the level of protection you need.

Digital assets in broadcast and media environments can generate revenue for decades, but if they become damaged or lost, they are either impossible or very expensive to recreate. As organizations in the broadcast and media industries adapt and re-invest for 4K or higher resolution production, older workflows may no longer be as efficient as they once were. Ensuring the long term protection and security of all high-value, high-resolu??on assets is essential. Cloudian and QStar Technologies regard data protection and easy access to data files as key requirements for organizations wishing to maximize their use of these valuable assets. To accommodate larger volumes of data necessitated by 4K files and higher resolution equipment, the ability to easily scale workflows, is paramount.
• Traditional IT security solutions rely on agents, which are not designed to operate in today’s complex virtual environments
• The agent-based approach to security diminishes the business value of virtualization and complicates management
• Virtualized data centers require a centralized approach that eliminates the need for agents on every VM

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 Although NetFlow was initially not on a standards track, it has now been superseded by the Internet Protocol Flow Information eXport (IPFIX), which is based on the NetFlow Version 9 implementation, and is on the IETF standards track with RFC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.

Business applications today have become the primary interface between a company and its customers. And, there has simultaneously been tremendous innovation in the area of business intelligence, which can unlock a personalized experience for each and every user - and help support key corporate objectives to increase revenue, strengthen customer loyalty and establish and maintain a high-quality brand in the marketplace. For technology managers, then, this is an exciting time to demonstrate the value of IT to the business. But, the situation also exposes the intense risk we place on our IT applications because they now carry enormous organizational responsibility and significance. Companies that have implemented infrastructure management solutions from CA Technologies Report:
. Service desk calls by as much as 40%
. Reduction of IT management tools in use by 50%
. First-call closure rate improvement by a factor of three
. Mean-time-to-repair improvements of up to 50%
. Staff efficiency improvements of up to 43%
. An average return on investment in nine months or less
In May 2010, CA Technologies commissioned Forrester Consulting to examine the financial impact and potential return on investment (ROI) that an organization might realize from implementing CA's Oblicore Guarantee solution. To determine the impact, Forrester examined the specific costs, benefits, flexibility, and risk elements that a CA customer, Catholic Health East (CHE), experienced over the past three years using the CA Oblicore Guarantee solution. From interviews conducted by Forrester, it was determined that CHE's use of CA's Oblicore Guarantee solution allowed for a significant redeployment of labor necessary to compile and distribute service-level management reports to its system office customers and enabled a similar labor cost avoidance associated with compiling and distributing reports to its hospitals or Regional Health Corporations (RHCs). Based on our interviews, Forrester projects a three-year, risk-adjusted total net present value (NPV) of $173,420, representing the net costs and benefits attributed to using the CA Oblicore Guarantee solution versus CHE's previous manual processes used in service management reporting. (See details below in Costs, Benefits, Flexibility, and Risks sections). In addition, the risk-adjusted ROI was a favorable 45%, and the payback period was within 20 months.
