Data mining uncovers patterns in data through a variety of predictive techniques. By engaging in data mining, organizations like yours gain greater insight into external conditions, internal processes, your markets – and your customers.
This paper discusses the Office 365 platform, its applicability for organizations of all sizes, and the need for third-party solutions which complement the platform to maintain a strong security posture.
This White Paper examines the need for AANPM and how it helps organisations to optimise the performance of business critical applications while speeding up network and application trouble-shooting and minimising downtime.
This guide is intended for companies,organizations, and IT professionals who are looking for a network and application monitoring tool that provides a holistic view of application performance, including performance monitoring, from the end-user perspective.
All organizations depend on information to manage day-to-day operations, comply with regulations, gauge financial performance, and monitor strategic initiatives. This critical information resides in the organization's business records. As internal auditors conduct their annual risk assessment, they should consider how well business records are managed and assess the degree to which the risks to this information are understood.
The relationship between an organization's information-handling practices and the impact those practices have on its ability to respond to electronic discovery is recognized in the Electronic Discovery Reference Model (EDRM). But the EDRM falls short of describing standards or best practices that can be applied to the complex issues surrounding the creation, management, and governance of electronic information. ARMA International's Generally Accepted Record-keeping Principles and its information Governance Maturity Model are designed specifically to provide a scalable, broadly applicable framework to address these issues.
Learn how to understand, manage and debug problems due to size, complexity and scale in operation of virtualized networks for modern data centers, including developer- and user-controlled software in clouds.

The importance of IT security to a business has never been greater. But often, investments are shelved or cutbacks are made. This can result in businesses unknowingly making compromises regarding their IT security.
In this latest whitepaper from Kaspersky Lab, you’ll find useful facts, examples and business case arguments to help you get buy-in and commitment from your business.
As a retail security professional, you are challenged with maintaining a constant state of PCI compliance and keeping your infrastructure safe using best-of-breed security solutions that help, rather than hinder, your quest to validate your systems. Endpoint protection that is based on detecting known malware is demonstrably ineffective —and has the potential to create numerous inefficiencies across your organization. In addition, constant updating of security patches and antivirus software libraries can slow response times and leave endpoints vulnerable to APT attacks.
Besides potential breaches of your customers’ personal information, as well as damage to your brand, a lack of endpoint control can also put you at risk for steep PCI noncompliance and regulatory penalties—fines that can range anywhere from $10,000 to $100,000 per month.
Recent high-profile data breaches at brand name retailers, highlight the need to protect your company’s reputation and your customer’s personal information.
The consequences of suffering a data breach are numerous, and none of them are positive — consumer mistrust, a drop in traffic and a decrease in sales, to name just a few.
Most organizations must comply with multiple standards covering privacy, corporate financial data, Protected Health Information and credit card data. Fortunately, the overlapping standards agree on a single concept; implementing appropriate security controls to protect information from improper disclosure.
However, GRC requirements do not exist in a vacuum. Organizational objectives must also be supported. Critical functions can be disrupted if business needs are not considered when establishing compliance activities. In addition, providing evidence that the appropriate controls are in place and enforced is a requirement of any audit. Investing in selecting the right policies, controls and solutions leads to more successful audits and security that is more reliable.
In October 2013, Bit9 conducted its third-annual survey on server security. In the past year, the inability to detect or stop advanced attacks has remained a constant challenge for enterprises. This survey was designed to analyze these challenges from respondents who are responsible for their organization’s security posture.
