The Future of Security in the Cloud
Download Slide Deck: ▸ Here
Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs) are increasing at an unprecedented rate.
The threat landscape of today is drastically different than just a few years
ago. Attacks are much more organized and sophisticated.
They are harder to detect and even harder to anticipate. In the foreseeable
future it's going to get a whole lot harder.
Everything you know today will change. Keeping up with this changing
landscape is already a daunting task.
Your organization needs to use the latest tools, methods and expertise to
guard against those threats.
But will that be enough? In the foreseeable future attacks will originate
from entirely new attack platforms.
The tools and methods you use today will not protect you from the threats you
will face tomorrow.
Your security experts will be no match for this new threat. Whe... (more)
Sixteen Tips for Moving Your Workloads to the Cloud
Got a plan for your move to the cloud? If you do, you’re in the minority.
According to a recent study, a mere 31 percent of those planning a move to
the cloud actually have a strategy for migrating data and applications. The
To avoid the complexity and cost, we recommend heeding the following advice.
It’s but a fraction of the endless recommendations we received from cloud
experts who offered well-seasoned tips on what to do and not do when you
begin planning to move workloads to the cloud.

HP hasn't exactly coined the term Big Data developer. Except, perhaps, it
maybe kind of has if you look at the recent tools being rolled out from the
firm's HP Software division.
All working towards what HP loves to call "business transformation" - the
company is now also using the term "new style of IT," by which it of course
means cloud-centric (always hybrid) technology architectures aligned to take
advantage of Big Data analytics (even in SMBs) and other more cutting-edge
elements such as enterprise social activity and collaboration technology.
In a mobile-first world always,... (more)
DevOps Inspires a New Era of Software Quality Assurance
High performing enterprise Software Quality Assurance (SQA) teams validate
systems are ready for use - getting most actively involved as components
integrate and form complete systems.
These teams catch and report on defects, making sure the customer gets the
best software possible. SQA teams have leveraged automation and
virtualization to execute more thorough testing in less time - bringing Dev
and Ops together, ensuring production readiness.
Does the emergence of DevOps mean the end of Enterprise SQA? Does the SQA

Even as cloud and managed services grow increasingly central to business strategy and performance, challenges remain. The biggest sticking point for companies seeking to capitalize on the cloud is data security. Keeping data safe is an issue in any computing environment, and it has been a focus since the earliest days of the cloud revolution. Understandably so: a lot can go wrong when you allow valuable information to live outside the firewall. Recent revelations about government snooping, along...

Business and IT leaders today need better application delivery capabilities to support critical new innovation. But how often do you hear objections to improving application delivery like, “I can harden it against attack, but not on this timeline”; “I can make it better, but it will cost more”; “I can deliver faster, but not with these specs”; or “I can stay strong on cost control, but quality will suffer”? In the new application economy, these tradeoffs are no longer acceptable. Customers will ...

Data-intensive companies that strive to gain insights from data using Big Data analytics tools can gain tremendous competitive advantage by deploying data-centric storage. Organizations generate large volumes of data, the vast majority of which is unstructured. As the volume and velocity of this unstructured data increases, the costs, risks and usability challenges associated with managing the unstructured data (regardless of file type, size or device) increases simultaneously, including end-to-...

The Internet of Things (IoT) is causing data centers to become radically decentralized and atomized within a new paradigm known as “fog computing.” To support IoT applications, such as connected cars and smart grids, data centers' core functions will be decentralized out to the network's edges and endpoints (aka “fogs”). As this trend takes hold, Big Data analytics platforms will focus on high-volume log analysis (aka “logs”) and rely heavily on cognitive-computing algorithms (aka “cogs”) to mak...

Cryptography has become one of the most underappreciated, misunderstood components of technology. It’s too easy for salespeople to dismiss concerns with three letters that nobody wants to question. ‘Yes, of course, we use AES.’
But what exactly are you trusting to be the ultimate guardian of your data? Let’s face it – you probably don’t know. An organic, grass-fed Kobe steak is a far cry from a Big Mac, but they’re both beef, right? Not exactly. Crypto is the same way. The US government require...
