IT Security is a field of computer science concerned with the control of risks related to computer use. The means traditionally taken to realize this objective is to attempt to create a secure computing platform, designed so that agents (users or programs) can only perform actions that have been allowed. This involves specifying and implementing a security policy. The actions in question can be reduced to operations of access, modification and deletion.

Equip analysts and those on the front line with the tools they need to generate actionable intelligence, with mission critical speed.
IBM's i2 Analyst’s Notebook offers a wide range of analysis and visualization capabilities that can aid in the identification of key actionable intelligence. Download this IBM White Paper to discover and deliver actionable intelligence to help identify, predict and prevent criminal, terrorist, and fraudulent activities with IBM i2 Analyst's Notebook.
The IBM Security Trusteer Fraud Protection Suite offers a simplified approach to fraud management to help financial organizations more accurately identify and prevent fraud—all while helping to lower costs and improve the customer experience.
Join IBM and partner Zementis in this webcast to hear how Predictive Model Markup Language (PMML), an industry standard, is helping solve business obstacles and enabling users to:
- Drive timely and relevant insights via in-line predictive analytics
- Score thousands of data records per second, scaling with business needs to enable instantaneous decisions
- Improve performance and cost efficiency by reducing or eliminating movement data off-platform to conduct analysis
As most companies now realize, analytics is increasingly more of an integral part of their day-to-day business operations. In a recent survey by a global research firm, 80% of CIOs stated that transition from backward-looking, passive analysis must shift to forward-looking predictive analytics. The challenge is that many analytic solutions are aligned to a specific platform, tied to inflexible programming models and requiring vast data movement. In this webcast, Forrester and experts from IBM will highlight how technology like Apache Spark on z/OS allows businesses to extract deep customer insight without the cost, latency and security risks of data movement throughout the enterprise.
Join us for a complimentary webinar with Mark Simmonds, IBM big data IT Architect who will talk with leading analyst Mike Ferguson of Intelligent Business Strategies about the current fraud landscape. They will discuss the business impact of fraud, how to develop a fraud-protection strategy and how IBM z Systems analytics solutions and predictive models can dramatically reduce your risk exposure and loss from fraud.
IT security used to be about keeping intruders out and selectively letting in friendly visitors, which was best accomplished with a range of perimeter security and end-point solutions. Download this asset to learn more how the landscape has fundamentally shifted since, with much of this shift accelerating in the last 2-3 years.

Join Howard M. Cohen, Senior Resultant, Tech Channel Partners Results and Orlando Scott-Cowley, Cybersecurity Strategist, Mimecast for this webcast and hear from industry experts regarding the latest email phishing and whaling schemes penetrating the market and the steps needed to protect your employees and organization.
Around-the-clock global operations, data growth, and server virtualization all together can complicate protection and recovery strategies. They affect when and how often you can perform backups, increase the time required to back up, and ultimately affect your ability to successfully restore. These challenges can force lower standards for recovery objectives, such as reducing the frequency of backup jobs or protecting fewer applications, both of which can introduce risk. High-speed snapshot technologies and application integration can go a long way toward meeting these needs, and they have quickly become essential elements of a complete protection strategy. But snapshot copies have often been managed separately from traditional backup processes. Features like cataloging for search and retrieval as well as tape creation usually require separate management and do not fully leverage snapshot capabilities. To eliminate complexity and accelerate protection and recovery, you need a solution
ENDPOINT DATA. It’s often one of the most forgotten aspects of an enterprise data protection strategy. Yet, content on laptops, desktops and mobile devices is among a company’s most valuable data even while it’s potentially at the greatest risk. According to IDC there will be some 1.3 billion mobile workers by 2015. However, only half of enterprises today are using some type of endpoint backup. That means that the volume of endpoint data that is in jeopardy is nothing short of significant.

How do you maintain the security and confidentiality of your organization’s data in a world in which your employees, contractors and partners are now working, file sharing and collaborating on a growing number of mobile devices? Makes you long for the day when data could be kept behind firewalls and employees were, more or less, working on standardized equipment. Now, people literally work on the edge, using various devices and sending often unprotected data to the cloud. In the 24 x 7 BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) time frame in which people now work, they also expect data recovery and access to be lightning fast, and expediency, rather than security, is the driver.
This dramatic shift to this diversified way of working has made secure backup, recovery and sharing of data an exponentially more difficult problem to solve. The best approach is to start with a complete solution that can intelligently protect, manage and access data and information across users, heterogeneous devices and infrastructure from a single console - one that can efficiently manage your data for today's mobile environment and that applies rigorous security standards to this function.
Data conversations continue to change as all businesses are trying to figure out today's reality of the move to the cloud, anywhere/anytime computing, and the explosive growth of data. These trends have drastically reshaped the IT industry and data management forever. With continued market innovations in storage, cloud, and hyper-converged infrastructures, there are six key modern IT needs that are increasingly the focus of CIO and technology leaders.
Enterprises today increasingly turn to array-based snapshots and replication to augment or replace legacy data protection solutions that have been overwhelmed by data growth. The challenge is that native array snapshot tools – and alternative 3rd party solutions – have varying degrees of functionality, automation, scripting requirements, hardware support and application awareness. These approaches can add risk as well as administrative complexity and make it more difficult to realize the full potential of snapshots – whether in single disk vendor estates or in heterogeneous storage environments.
This checklist will enable you to build a shortlist of the 'must have' features needed for snapshots to deliver exactly what you require in your application environment or Private Cloud.
The cloud is changing everything. It’s transforming IT organizations with agility and efficiency like never before, enabling them to realize new IT-as-a-Service delivery models. Yet, with change also comes new challenges. Read more to see how you can solve them so that you can realize the full potential of your next cloud project.
