Data Management comprises all the disciplines related to managing data as a valuable resource. Data Resource Management is the development and execution of architectures, policies, practices and procedures that properly manage the full data lifecycle needs of an enterprise.
In this Gigaom Research webinar, we will discuss the technologies that will enable this perceptive intelligence. We will also evaluate the long-term future and provide advice to technologists and manufacturers looking to participate in the coming era of device intelligence.
Dominant trends in IT today such as Cloud, Mobile and Smarter Physical Infrastructures are generating massive amounts of corporate data. The inherent value of this data coupled with the increasing complexity of IT environments is forcing those tasked with data protection to re-evaluate their approaches. Join this session to understand how you can reduce the cost and complexity of backup and recovery while ensuring comprehensive data protection across virtual environments, core applications and remote sites.
Organizations are shifting to Cloud to improve agility, reduce costs and increase IT efficiency. To achieve the benefits promised by Cloud, your storage infrastructure needs to be virtualized and provide the required automation and management capabilities.
Watch this webinar to learn how you can quickly convert existing storage to Cloud storage, standardize advanced data protection capabilities, and utilize advanced data-driven analytics to optimize tiering across storage systems --- reducing per unit storage costs up to 50% and freeing up valuable IT budget.
As a leader in domain management and internet security, Verisign’s network supports more than 82 billion transactions on a daily basis, enabling nearly 50 percent of the internet’s domains. Building networks to survive the largest DDoS attacks on the internet is part of Verisign’s heritage, and Verisign has been using DDoS mitigation techniques for more than 16 years while protecting the .com and .net infrastructures. This gives Verisign the ability to flex its entire 1+ tbps infrastructure as needed in real-time response to attack scenarios against itself and its customers.
The Verisign Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) Trends Report contains the observations and insights derived from mitigations enacted on behalf of, and in cooperation with, customers of Verisign DDoS Protection Services, and the security research of Verisign iDefense Security Intelligence Services. It represents a unique view into the attack trends unfolding online for the previous quarter, including attack statistics, DDoS malicious code analysis and behavioral trends
Cyber security threats have become more pervasive and damaging than ever, ranging from advanced persistent threats to massive distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks. By moving toward a more holistic, proactive approach to addressing all potential DDoS security threats, you help ensure the availability and security of your business-critical network even as zero-day threats emerge and known threats evolve.
Versign OpenHybridTM is a Verisign DDoS Protection Services architecture that enables interoperability between on-premise and cloud-based platforms. An easy to use tool (Open API), allows customers to leverage existing security perimeter devices to signal threat information to the Verisign DDoS protection cloud, when the capabilities of the device are exceeded. Verisign OpenHybrid™ can also be applied to monitor and protect services hosted within other public and private cloud services.
After an initial rollout to more than 45,000 sales users, IBM wanted even greater insights. Thanks to the high usability of Sugar, IBM was able to increase sales data quality - which has gone on to power predictive sales analytics. Learn how IBM and SugarCRM are driving more effective sales teams.
Today’s adversaries continue to increase their capabilities faster than the defenses deployed to stop them. Whether they are obfuscating their attacks or hiding malicious code within webpages and other files, they are making it more and more difficult to profile and identify legitimate network traffic. This is especially true in firstgeneration network security devices that restrict protection and policies to ports and protocols.
Empirical data from our individual Product Analysis Reports (PARs) and Comparative Analysis Reports (CARs) is used to create the unique Security Value MapTM (SVM).
The SVM provides a quick, clear overview of the relative value of security investment options by mapping security effectiveness and value (TCO per protected Mbps) of tested product configurations.
In today’s dynamic network environment, point-in-time solutions lack the visibility and control you need to implement an effective security policy that will accelerate threat detection and response. And disparate solutions only add to capital and operating costs and administrative complexity.
For nearly 10 years, viruses endured as the primary method of attack, and over time they were largely matched by
defenders’ ability to block and protect against them. Motivated by the notoriety and the knowledge gained by the
discovery and publicizing of new vulnerabilities, attackers continued to innovate. What ensued were distinct threat
cycles, an “arms race,” so to speak. Approximately every five years attackers would launch new types of threats—
from macroviruses to worms to spyware and rootkits—and defenders would quickly innovate to protect networks
Every user’s first interaction with your website begins with a series of DNS queries. Poor DNS performance can lead to slow page loads, dissatisfied customers, and lost business. However, you can improve results, contain costs, and make better use of valuable IT personnel by leveraging a cloud-based DNS service.
Making changes to your business strategy can often create new risks. If your business continuity management (BCM) plan is not part of an organization-wide, integrated program, it may not evolve to address these new risks. Understand which practices can be followed to successfully protect your organization’s business operations and reputation with a proactive, business-centric approach to BCM that highlights critical practices.
Every organization must put a plan in place for recoverability after an outage, but testing your enterprise resilience without full business and IT validation is ineffective. Read the white paper to learn how to put a plan in place for full functional validation, and get details on the importance of validating resiliency in a live environment; learn why small-scale recovery “simulations” are inadequate and misleading; understand why validating resilience demands involvement from IT and the business; and get details on the checks and balances you need to maintain and validate business resilience.
Read the case study “A broadband company streamlines its recovery processes with IBM Cloud” to learn how IBM service teams used cloud-based technology to help the company develop an innovative and proven cloud computing solution for its backup and recovery environment. IBM’s turnkey solution helped the company improve protection, recovery, performance and scalability within its disaster recovery processes, and maximize backup performance and disaster recovery capabilities.
Businesses around the world are looking for ways to innovate, improve customer relationships and drive down costs. But it can be challenging to find the right people and resources to support those corporate initiatives. Managed services from IBM can help.
This Executive Summary of the Next Generation Data Center white paper highlights IBM’s vision for the next-generation data center, its potential to be truly revolutionary and the prescribed pathway for getting there.
Four technology trends—cloud computing, mobile technology, social collaboration and analytics—are shaping the business and converging on the data center. But few data center strategies are designed with the requisite flexibility, scalability or resiliency to meet the new demands. Read the white paper to learn how a good data center strategy can help you prepare for the rigors and unpredictability of emerging technologies. Find out how IBM’s predictive analytics are helping companies build more accurate, forward-looking data center strategies and how those strategies are leading to more agile, efficient and resilient infrastructures.
This report will help CIOs, application architects, and IT decision-makers identify common patterns of implementation failures and successes and provide a framework for evaluating multi-cloud environments.
