"Agile companies push new application versions to production every few weeks, sometimes even faster. With super-fast Beta cycles being the norm, getting various user groups, such as remote QA teams, access to staging environments can slow down your delivery timelines. What if you could enable secure access for any number of users in 15 minutes?
BubblewrApp’s Service Access Service (SAS) is a turnkey, cloud-based service that acts as the first line of defense for your applications. BubblewrApp’s SAS enables its customers to grant easy access to applications deployed ""behind the firewall"" (on premise) or ""inside the Virtual Private Cloud"" (in a public cloud) from any remote location. Customers can begin leveraging SAS within minutes without requiring any changes to pre-existing network and security policies. The result is a vastly superior secure application access model that enables a zero CapEx, low OpEx model for secure application access, both on premise and in the public cloud."

Today’s malware authors continue to increase their capabilities faster than security solutions can adapt to them. Whether it’s changing their attacks or hiding malicious code within web pages, it’s more difficult to identify legitimate network traffic. With first-generation network security devices, it is nearly impossible to defend against today’s threats. The situation will get worse before it gets better. Adversaries now utilize agile development and testing methods to develop their malware, they test new malware against the latest security software to increase effectiveness. Next-generation network security devices are emerging that provide the visibility and situational context required to meet today’s threats. These solutions use security automation to provide a sophisticated solution that is both lightweight and agile
Modern data centers have and continue to undergo transformation. Driven by familiar trends, green IT, endpoint growth, externalization, and increased resource requirements, modern data centers support more services, users, and data than ever before. The potential of new risks to the modern data center demands renewed attention to data center security. Data center architects must build in proper security controls, and policies and processes to address and mitigate these new risks.
Recent changes in hacking combined with the emergence of the Internet of Everything have profoundly changed how we protect our systems, driving us to think about a new approach to cybersecurity.
