Hyperconvergence has been receiving a tremendous amount of attention because it represents the next step in the evolution of IT resource delivery. This technology takes the idea of integrating compute, storage and networking that started with converged systems design and has improved on those architectures by adding deeper levels of abstraction and automation. Hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) vendors promise simplified operation and the ability to quickly and easily expand capacity by deploying and launching additional modules; simplicity has been the key selling point for the HCI pioneers.
As HCI ventures even deeper into the enterprise and cloud environments, the architectures will need to become more efficient, agile and adaptable to help IT professionals shoulder the burden of rapidly growing data sets and workloads. This report discusses the benefits of HCI and the enhancements that must be
made to expand HCI deeper into the mainstream enterprise datacenter.
If the notion of GDPR approach as an agile methodology was the thesis for this paper, the conclusion surely has to be that there is much work still to be done by the enterprise. From an obvious mismatch between the belief of board preparedness to actual preparedness, drilling down into the specific areas of storage, security and development, there’s a feeling that while organisations are now aware of the risks and the necessary philosophical practice that has – or will – become action, there is still an absence of that ‘organic’ inclusion that should make GDPR part of the furniture.
We’ve all heard the phrase “you have to spend money to make money,” and while it may be accurate to some extent, businesses also have to keep a close eye on their budgets. As you establish your technology allowance and evaluate tools to help grow your business, consider these five items as absolute essentials.
A range of application security tools was developed to support the efforts to secure the enterprise from the threat posed by insecure applications. But in the ever-changing landscape of application security, how does an organization choose the right set of tools to mitigate the risks their applications pose to their environment? Equally important, how, when, and by whom are these tools used most effectively?
Today, when you make decisions about information technology (IT) security priorities, you must often strike a careful balance between business risk, impact, and likelihood of incidents, and the costs of prevention or cleanup. Historically, the most well-understood variable in this equation was the methods that hackers used to disrupt or invade the system.
Countless studies and analyst recommendations suggest the value of improving security during the software development life cycle rather than trying to address vulnerabilities in software discovered after widespread adoption and deployment. The justification is clear.For software vendors, costs are incurred both directly and indirectly from security flaws found in their products. Reassigning development resources to create and distribute patches can often cost software vendors millions of dollars, while successful exploits of a single vulnerability have in some cases caused billions of dollars in losses to businesses worldwide. Vendors blamed for vulnerabilities in their product's source code face losses in credibility, brand image, and competitive advantage.
The Business Case for Data Protection, conducted by Ponemon Institute and sponsored by Ounce Labs, is the first study to determine what senior executives think about the value proposition of corporate data protection efforts within their organizations. In times of shrinking budgets, it is important for those individuals charged with managing a data protection program to understand how key decision makers in organizations perceive the importance of safeguarding sensitive and confidential information.
In the broadening data center cost-saving and energy efficiency discussion, data center physical infrastructure preventive maintenance (PM) is sometimes neglected as an important tool for controlling TCO and downtime. PM is performed specifically to prevent faults from occurring. IT and facilities managers can improve systems uptime through a better understanding of PM best practices.

During the course of research efforts in the all-flash array (AFA) space, IDC is still encountering IT executives, particularly CIOs and CFOs, who have an outdated perspective on relevant cost metrics for comparing all-flash solutions with legacy hard disk drive (HDD)–based systems. In IDC's view, flash is an absolute requirement for performance reasons in any 3rd Platform computing environment. While most understand the need for flash performance, there is still a subset that does not view the broader use of flash in the enterprise as cost effective

Angesichts der Geschwindigkeit, mit der Unternehmen auf Mobiltechnik umsteigen, muss man statt von einer Entwicklung schon eher von einem globalen Wandel sprechen. Unter Berücksichtigung der Tatsache, wie schnell Benutzer und Unternehmen von PCs auf Mobilgeräte umsatteln, prognostizierte IDC, dass der Absatz von PCs 2013 auf ein Rekordtief fallen würde.
Most companies already have an endpoint security solution in place. But a single security product is not sufficient to address the challenges of securing and managing the endpoint. This paper explains how a hosted endpoint solution can help.
The mobile workspace has created problems for IT, including policy enforcement, attack from untrusted wireless networks, and physical data theft. This white paper examines how cloud-based security solutions can protect distributed workers.
Properly managed, multi-server and wildcard certificates can provide increased flexibility. Since the consequences of a compromise can be more severe than they would be for a conventional certificate, supplemental safeguards should be employed. In the absence of these safeguards, we do not recommend the use of either multi-server or Wildcard certificates, due to both the security risks involved and the expanded scope of management issues in the wake of a compromise.
