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.
While the rise of web-enabled applications and the zero latency customers expect from them has driven many enterprises to adopt performance management solutions, they are finding that basic understanding of how their overall user populations are being served is simply not enough. Rather, to improve and ensure the performance and availability of their business-critical web applications, organizations need to be able to see and understand the actual user experience-and provide the appropriate context and visibility necessary to fix problems based on impact-based priority.
Companies that have fully implemented application performance management solutions from CA Technologies report:
. Reductions in application downtime by as much as 70%
. Decreases in mean time to repair by 50% or more
. Decreases in application performance delays by greater than 70%
. An average return on investment of 362% within eight months or less
. A total benefit of ownership of $6,443,039 over three year
Firewalls enforce network access via a positive control model, where only specific traffic defined in policies is granted access to the network while all other traffic is denied. Access Control Lists (ACLs) initially performed this functionality, often in routers, but their rudimentary approach gave way to dedicated packet filtering and stateful inspection firewall devices that offered deeper levels of access controls. Unfortunately, these traditional firewalls shared a common shortcoming—an inability to see all of the applications traversing the network across all ports and protocols. The use of proxy-based devices began providing more granular visibility into a small set of applications and protocols where traditional firewalls were blind.
The wide area network (WAN) is about connecting users to applications, but as applications move to the cloud, WAN requirements have changed, and MPLS is no longer sufficient to meet the new WAN requirements. Silver Peak CEO David Hughes highlights how Silver Peak's SD-WAN solution provides customers with increased flexibility, visibility and control, performance, and cost savings.
Silver Peak gives enterprises and service providers the flexibility to securely connect users to applications via the most cost-effective source of connectivity available. With Silver Peak’s WAN solutions, customers can augment or replace MPLS networks with secure broadband Internet connectivity, (often referred to as an SD-WAN) while dramatically reducing WAN costs and complexity. Customers benefit from unprecedented levels of visibility, control and security over all traffic traversing the WAN, while improving application and network performance. With Silver Peak, sites can be rapidly and non-disruptively extended, moved, or changed as business demands evolve.
Learn how Dickinson + Associates is using SAP S/4HANA Professional Services Cloud—including the entire suite of accounting, financials, and procurement—to gain better visibility into their business. For the first time, the company has real time tracking of project profitability, as well as better visibility into resource scheduling.
While most business is digital, most organizations still rely on paper for the “last foot” of the process: the sign-off. Continued reliance on paper-based signatures is fraught with risks, including impeding productivity, reducing visibility, hampering compliance?and diminishing the customer experience. Electronic signatures (e-signatures), which are easily implemented from the cloud, help speed up the sales process by reducing errors and bottlenecks, while also ensuring greater security and mobility.
In this Executive Brief, we share best practices in how to evaluate and deploy layered controls that will help you develop a holistic approach to controls, investigate and control where risk is introduced, assess your risk appetite and benchmark your cybersecurity posture against others in your industry.
Limited visibility has tethered CIOs' success in both IT and business. However, using federated CMDB technology, CIOs can view the complete IT infrastructure and the entire lifecycle of a business service.
Application management requires visibility from multiple vantage points within the IT enterprise, combined with a centralized information store that pulls the technology pieces of the application puzzle into a coherent whole.
Effective workload automation that provides complete management level visibility into real-time events impacting the delivery of IT services is needed by the data center more than ever before. The traditional job scheduling approach, with an uncoordinated set of tools that often requires reactive manual intervention to minimize service disruptions, is failing more than ever due to todays complex world of IT with its multiple platforms, applications and virtualized resources.
Virtualization continues to grow at 20 percent or more per year, but it is not expected to overtake existing physical architectures at least through 2010. This white paper examines the unique challenges of virtualization and offers tips for its successful management alongside IT's physical deployments.
A recent survey of CIOs found that over 75% want to develop an overall information strategy in the next three years, yet over 85% are not close to implementing an enterprise-wide content management strategy. Meanwhile, data runs rampant, slows systems, and impacts performance. Hard-copy documents multiply, become damaged, or simply disappear.
There are success stories of businesses that have implemented Business Service Management (BSM) with well-documented, bottom-line results. What do these organizations know that their discouraged counterparts don't?
The relentless march of end user organizations toward cloud services continued during the past 12 months, according to a new SANS survey, despite long-standing fears about information security, the lack of visibility into cloud provider security controls and the shortcomings of controls available to those who utilize cloud services. One big difference since last year’s SANS cloud security survey, “Information security professionals appear to have accepted that the cloud is here to stay and are, sometimes unenthusiastically, doing what they can to make the frontier secure.” To learn more, get the full SANS report.
