Database Security is the system, processes, and procedures that protect a database from unintended activity. Unintended activity can be categorized as authorized misuse, malicious attacks or inadvertent mistakes made by authorized individuals or processes. Traditionally databases have been protected from external connections by firewalls or routers on the network perimeter with the database environment existing on the internal network.
To get the most out of their computer automation initiatives, financial institutions must take a step back, assess their current IT environments, adjust as needed and make important decisions regarding the future of their IT infrastructures.
Banks want to use technology to work smarter, better and faster to maintain regulatory compliance, reduce risk and increase productivity. Automated IT systems management is helping them reach those goals in a seamless, efficient manner.
The greatest promise of the information-driven enterprise resides in the business-relevant questions financial services firms have historically been unable or afraid to ask, related to data consolidation and multi-tenancy, full-fidelity analytics and regulatory compliance, and Big Data.
As a website building service for consumers, Weebly is often the target of DDoS attacks. Previously they mitigated attacks through an internally built security infrastructure but the increasing scale and complexity of DDoS attacks had the company evaluating secondary protection. Learn how Weebly is well protected from DDoS threats of all sizes and complexities after incorporating an added layer of protection and resulting uninterrupted DDoS mitigation and analysis.
As cloud computing gains more traction, more businesses are beginning to align their security strategy to better manage the privacy and compliance challenges of this new deployment model. Indeed, cloud models are being used not only to add compute and storage resources, they are also becoming an imperative for data analytics and mobility.
In this paper, we will look at how the growing adoption of cloud computing is changing the way organizations are implementing security.
A number of network security technologies have arisen that claim to be the "next generation" of network defense - but what does this concept actually mean? How is the threat landscape changing the way we think about and deploy network security solutions?
Scott Crawford, Managing Research Director, Security and Risk Management at EMA Research provides insight into what we can expect in the area of network security and how to leverage new technologies to meet today's security challenges in light of other considerations such as overall complexity and performance.
This white paper explains how organizations can use behavior-based protection strategies to help disrupt malicious attacks in real time. It looks at how integrated, intelligent solutions from IBM can detect and help prevent threats - from the network perimeter to remote endpoints.
IBM Security Identity Governance and Administration provides an integrated, business-centric approach to help organizations improve security and reduce costs for managing accounts, groups, policies, credentials and access rights throughout the user lifecycle.
IBM solutions provide security intelligence across the enterprise with integrated threat analysis, real-time alerts, audit consolidation and compliance reporting to help protect against threats with a single view into the risks affecting mainframe and distributed systems.
IBM Security provides integrated access management solutions to validate who is who when users connect from inside or outside the enterprise, and to enable proactive access policies on cloud, social and mobile channels, helping improve control and security in complex online environments.
This paper explores how companies can more safely introduce employee - or corporate-owned mobile devices into the workplace, identify the risks inherent in their broader access to corporate data, and derive enhanced business value.
Securely connect people, applications and devices to cloud environments.
While organizations build their cloud environment by choosing from multiple service delivery models – Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS) and Software as a Service (SaaS) – the security needs for each of the delivery models is different.
Read this whitepaper to learn more about how:
· Threat-aware identity and access management can strengthen security in each of the cloud delivery models
· Self-service IAM solution can provide higher level of Security in Cloud as compared to on-premise
Maintain visibility and control with proven security solutions for public, private and hybrid clouds.
IBM Security solutions provide layered protection and deep insight across public, private and hybrid cloud environments. They help organizations manage user identities, protect data and applications, and prevent sophisticated attacks with advanced analytics.
Renewed interest in Virtualized Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) comes largely from the need to solve mobility and BYOD demands. Though traditional VDI vendors bring their own solutions to market, isn’t it time to consider smarter alternatives? By focusing on where VDI excels, where it falls short, and where web and cloud services can be most compatible, agencies can take a smarter approach to these difficult decisions. See the tradeoffs in plain English, and learn why more agencies are taking notice to emerging cloud technologies through this exclusive executive summary.
Agency IT is tasked with building smarter and more responsive state and local government services, while CTOs look to enable government workforce mobility and address strategic issues, such as BYOD. Adding to the challenge is a rise in devices, data, and even multiple OS’s that IT must support and secure. With the decline in traditional Windows-based computing, these challenges are driving agencies toward cloud solutions that don't sacrifice security or IT manageability. See our featured cloud solution for government agencies that has IT leaders re-thinking how they enable mobile productivity.
