Today’s increasingly competitive global economy requires businesses to make decisions faster than ever. Businesses need instant insight into the status of their people and processes. But manual, paper-based processes undermine decision-making. Paper makes it difficult for businesses to make smart decisions about their operations and their working capital. Manual processes also are costly and inefficient, create headaches for front-line staff, introduce compliance and security risks, and stymie collaboration with trading partners.
During the past 10 years, organizations have adopted accounts payable (AP) automation technologies at an accelerating pace. Document imaging, data capture, and other solutions are radically transforming the way AP departments work with their traditionally most common medium, paper. At the same time, the promise of electronic transactions is quickly becoming more of a reality, with growth year after year in the number of transactions sent and received electronically.
Accounts payable has been talking about end-to-end integrated automation for at least 40 years. Today, the technology exists, but resources are limited and end-to-end AP automation is still not standard. Some AP departments have automated pieces of the AP process, but an end-to-end solution should include the ability to capture, integrate, measure, process, store, and access information.
Privileged user accounts—whether usurped, abused or simply misused—are at the heart of most data breaches. Security teams are increasingly evaluating comprehensive privileged access management (PAM) solutions to avoid the damage that could be caused by a rogue user with elevated privileges, or a privileged user who is tired, stressed or simply makes a mistake. Pressure from executives and audit teams to reduce business exposure reinforces their effort, but comprehensive PAM solutions can incur hidden costs, depending on the implementation strategy adopted. With multiple capabilities including password vaults, session management and monitoring, and often user behavior analytics and threat intelligence, the way a PAM solution is implemented can have a major impact on the cost and the benefits. This report provides a blueprint for determining the direct, indirect and hidden costs of a PAM deployment over time.

Businesses today must reduce the risk of security breaches to protect the valuable data within their
organizations. At the same time, IT auditors are increasingly enforcing ever more stringent requirements
on the business. The bottom line is that privileged accounts and privileged access are being targeted by
hackers as a new attack surface and focused on by auditors who are insisting on greater controls around
The right privileged access management solution provides comprehensive protection for your missioncritical
servers with powerful, fine-grained controls over operating system-level access and privileged
user actions. Capable of enforcing access controls on powerful native Superuser accounts—like the

access management solution controls, monitors and audits privileged user activity, improving security and
simplifying audit and compliance.
For sales teams to be successful in the age of the customer, they need tools that help them close more deals, faster. Some CRM tools are underused because they’re not geared to helping reps sell in the modern era. This may be because they’re complicated to use; because they’re isolated from the apps your reps use every day; or because they don’t give reps the information they need.
Today, sales automation is not (just) about managing accounts, contacts, and activities. It’s about gaining insight that provides a competitive edge, having access to predictive information, being able to collaborate in real time, creating quotes in front of the customer, updating forecasts. All at any time, from any place, using mobile devices—all helping to drive sales and pipeline.

Developing an optimal arc flash protection strategy
for a given facility can be difficult due to the number of solutions
and system variables involved. Effective arc flash hazard reduction
is best achieved by establishing an overall system protection
strategy that accounts for safety and operational requirements as
well as system reliability and availability. An overview of available
solution categories and application guidance based on experience
in a wide variety of facility types is presented in order to assist
engineers trying to implement “safety by design” principles
to help deal with arc flash hazards. The approach provided addresses
the complexities of the trade-offs between competing priorities
and provides tools that help users develop effective protection
strategies for the unique circumstances in a given facility.

Email. You use it constantly. And it’s the number-one application to keep your organization functioning, lines of communication flowing, and productivity seamless. Organizations need email to stay up-and running all the time. After all, it’s supposed to just work, right?
This is where trouble often sets in. Cybercriminals use email constantly, too. It’s the number-one vector used to initiate attacks like malware delivery (think ransomware), impersonations and phishing attacks. In fact, almost 90% of organizations* have seen the volume of phishing attacks either rise or stay the same over the past 12 months. Internal threats have also been on the rise: Most organizations have encountered internal threats driven by careless employees (88%), compromised accounts (80%) or malicious insiders (70%) over the last year.

Business travel accounts for the majority
of your employee expenses. Travel and
expenses are intrinsically linked, so why
not manage them together?
When you combine travel and expense, some
questions are easier to answer:
• Where can I find a full picture of travel and
• Are expense claims aligned to my travel policy?
• Can I reclaim some VAT?
To connect travel and expense management,
businesses usually look for software that can
manage both processes from beginning to end.
This is commonly referred to as an integrated
solution. The results could be cost savings,
faster delivery or improved employee adoption
CA Privileged Access Manager améliore la sécurité IT, l’efficacité opérationnelle et la conformité avec la réglementation en protégeant les informations d’identification à forts privilèges, en défendant les

The right identity and access management solution can integrate with a healthcare provider’s EMR system to help keep sensitive medical data safe—and keep the organization compliant. It can provide valuable insights and visibility into accounts, access privileges and entitlements, across the wide range of users. By closing the gaps in identity protection, organizations can fight the threats of inadvertent misuse and intentional theft that may lead to security breaches.
Although the cost of flash storage solutions continues to fall, on a per-gigabyte capacity basis, it is still significantly more expensive to acquire than traditional hard drives. However, when the cost per gigabyte is examined in terms of TCO, and the customer looks past the pure acquisition cost and accounts for “soft factors” such as prolonging the life of a data center, lower operating costs (for example, power and cooling), increased flexibility and scalability, or the service levels that a flash solution enables, flash solution costs become increasingly competitive with spinning media.
The Dyre family of banking malware is back in the news after researchers recently observed that the malware incorporated tricks to avoid detection in malware sandboxes. Previously, Dyre was most notable for targeting high value bank accounts, including business accounts, and incorporating sophisticated social engineering components to overcome the 2-factor authentication used by most banks.
As IT departments’ lists of backlogged application development projects keep growing, so does the speed of new development requests from line-of-business personnel. For many IT departments, the speed of business — the speed of requests for additional developments — can’t be met under current practices. This inability to keep pace with critical development requests, supporting timely strategy modifications, seriously impacts an enterprise’s profitability. The solution FICO advocates — one that accounts for budget constraints, legacy operational realities and quality assurance — is to empower line-of-business personnel as Citizen Developers, giving them the right set of technology assets to quickly, safely and cost effectively participate in application development.
