This white paper addresses four different components of the Tivoli monitoring infrastructure for creating a high availability environment while providing redundancy and failover capacity. Although the principles are the same for each of these systems, the methods for adhering to these principles are different for each of them.
Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) is gaining momentum along with Software-Defined Networking (SDN). This paper examines the history of NFV and explores the prospects for networking to gradually evolve from a hardware-centric approach to a software-driven model. It concludes with an examination of future market implications and how NFV can help organizations to achieve their goals.

Say hello to video conferencing like you’ve never seen. Only Lifesize delivers one solution for simply connecting your conference rooms to everyone who needs to be in the meeting—from anywhere, on any device. And that’s just the beginning. Download to learn more.
Data sharing is the first priority in web conferencing.
Web conferencing doesn't work well for day-to-day collaboration. Everything is a scheduled, “meet-me” conference. You can’t just call someone.
Web conferencing providers don’t offer a complete solution. You have to separately manage and integrate video systems and instant messaging through independent platforms that do not integrate into the web conferencing service, resulting in an inferior and disjointed user experience.

Meet-me services like Blue Jeans® and Zoom® support only one model: a prescheduled, “meet-me” conference with long, numerical dial strings and access codes.
They don’t offer a “connected experience.” You have to separately manage and integrate video systems, resulting in an inferior, disjointed user experience that is more challenging to manage.
Meet-me models can’t match Lifesize. Everything else is a group meeting to which participants call in and wait for everyone else. There’s no directory dialing, no point-to-point calling, no presence status and no call escalation.
The only thing consistent about meet-me services is that they copy the cumbersome user experience of the audio conferencing model—dial, enter code, enter ID, wait …

Cisco and Polycom are expensive, on-premises solutions that take weeks to deploy. They require large, ongoing investments to manage them and do not offer a cloud service.
How much time and how many resources do you have to spend training and supporting users to work with your Cisco or Polycom solution? Don’t be fooled by packaging. Their solutions are still complex, on-premises hardware that require a team of IT specialists to support and lack the flexibility for you to grow at your own pace.
For a price similar to that of your infrastructure software maintenance, you can use Lifesize Cloud and skip the high cost and complexity of Cisco’s or Polycom’s on-premises infrastructure.

News headlines have been inundated with stories of massive personal and credit card data breaches. The rising intensity and sophisticated nature of cyber attacks has created a hostile and precarious environment for businesses charged with protecting their customers’ personal data. The lucrative business of selling credit card data on the black market has made point-of-sale (PoS) devices, PoS environments, and web kiosks a prime target for cybercriminals.

Android is on the rise. Unfortunately, popularity can also bring unwanted attention. While Android fans love the fact that it is an open development platform that offers developers the ability to build extremely rich and innovative applications, the same open nature of the Android platform is what makes it so attractive to malware creators. It’s high time for Android developers to increase their awareness of the pitfalls awaiting their users. This white paper focuses on the value of secure code signing practices for building more secure Android apps.
For years, developers have known that one of the best ways to reassure users is by signing code using a digital signature accessed via a private key issued by a respected certificate authority. But signed code is not invulnerable. Due to lax key security and vetting processes, malware has managed to infiltrate applications with signed code.
Read the white paper, Protect Your Applications—and Reputation—with Symantec EV Code Signing, to learn:
• Key background on the latest malware threats
• How you can provide users with reassurance that your application is safe to download
• Why EV Code Signing Certificates represent the next step in advanced website security and their effectiveness
• How you can help provide a frictionless experience when users attempt to download your application
The malware threat and resulting lack of confidence on the part of online users puts software developers and other companies that rely on software downloads at risk. Code signing is an industry-recommended and widely-used defense against tampering, corruption, or malware infection in software code, armed with a powerful method to both identify code and assure the identity of the code signer. This white paper discusses the malware threat, the potential impact on your business, and how to protect your company and your customers by using code signing.
