This white paper examines how some of the ways organizations
use big data make their infrastructures vulnerable to attack. It
presents recommended best practices organizations can adopt
to help make their infrastructures and operations more secure.
And it discusses how adding advanced security software solutions
from IBM to their big-data environment can fill gaps that
big-data platforms by themselves do not address. It describes
how IBM® Security Guardium®, an end-to- end solution for
regulatory compliance and comprehensive data security, supports
entitlement reporting; user-access and activity monitoring;
advanced risk analytics and real-time threat detection analytics;
alerting, blocking, encryption and other data protection capabilities,
as well as automated compliance workflows and reporting
capabilities, to stop threats.
Solutions that make it easy to keep track of security and software updates will give you an edge like no other. In many cases, hackers target specific holes in outdated software. Rather than dealing with the headache of continually updating each computer in your network, use tools that track and perform system updates automatically. You’ll always be ahead of the curve.

Discover how the real savings associated with document capture start when automatically capturing and validating data from your organization’s scanned documents to eliminate costly process steps and free up staff time.
The role of enterprise content management (ECM) as a centralized document repository is well established. However, the value of ECM increases exponentially when it is leveraged as an information hub between line-of-business (LOB) systems to facilitate key processes, keep data in sync and maximize investments in existing applications.
An integral part of your information management technology strategy is how you actually get the needed information into your business systems. Do you have staff devoting time to manually entering data in those systems? Data capture solutions automatically extract data from incoming documents and make data validation simple.

The digital financial services world has created an amplified set of challenges for the data center and network. Its role in enabling the success of the wider institution has become even more critical, but to deliver this it needs to provide a higher level of performance with increased agility, while maintaining high levels of efficiency and security.
This is forcing institutions to transform their underlying IT capabilities, with the need to simplify the network, obtain more flexible connectivity, automate IT operations, and enable centralized control and administration being core strategies in this respect. As shown in Figure 8, this is driving a number of requirements for the future network. Key considerations for financial institutions in architecture design and vendor selection should be around moving toward a software-defined, intelligent, cloud-ready, and open network that enables the institution to meet its ICT imperatives and achieve these key ICT strategies.

The ongoing success of 7ticks depends on having an IT infrastructure that adapts and scales to unforgiving reliability, performance, and transparency requirements. To support the torrid growth of data, 7ticks needed to expand the IP/MPLS network connecting its data centers to 40 Gbps—and have an immediate path to 100 Gbps and beyond. Within its data centers, 7ticks needed network and security solutions that would keep pace—and would simplify service management and support automation.
“Our biggest challenge is performance at scale,” says Scott Caudell, founder of the 7ticks business and vice president of IT infrastructure at Interactive Data. “IT is our business. The 7ticks infrastructure helps customers get a lower time to market and faster execution speeds at a cost that’s sustainable for their businesses.”
The bank wanted to modernize its global data center core and edge networks to move to the next stage of its private cloud journey. The bank has long recognized the advantages of server virtualization, and it wanted to move more aggressively to a software-defined data center. The bank was virtualizing all services, including compute, storage, and network, to gain greater business flexibility and deliver cost savings. But first, it needed an elastic, flexible, and production ready network to connect its data centers.
The bank wanted a dynamically scalable network to interconnect its data centers in Europe, Asia, and North America, so that it could move toward a fully automated, self provisioned cloud. The global network needed to deliver performance at scale for the company’s highly virtualized resources, while also supporting integration of legacy assets into its software-defined data centers.
Whilst the FSI sector races to implement cutting-edge technologies such as AI, blockchain and automation, there are no mutually agreed upon set of best practices to implement these technologies. As a result, organisations are using their own blend
of strategic initiatives and company culture to drive innovation, with varying levels of success. To help, this article features advice from five of the leading experts in the FSI and technology sector today.
Several of the most visible tactics to kick-start innovation in FSI organisations include launching innovation or incubation centres, launching hackathons, partnering with or acquiring start-ups, venture investment or simply trying to develop solutions in house. Whilst each of these approaches has potential, there is a risk that organisations fall into the trap of innovation theatre, in other words, failing to effectively integrate cutting edge technology into key business functions.
As networks scale, they become difficult to manage. A different command line interface (CLI) or operating system (OS) is required for every device type in your network, such as routers, switches, and firewalls. Learning a new OS for every device is a complex task for your operations team and can slow them down—not a very efficient way to run a network.
A Scalable Data Center Network for the Data Tsunami Digital Transformation and other changes drive vast and innumerable new data flows through the business, and increase pressure on IT to continually, quickly, and efficiently address a broad array of new demands. IT needs a network that empowers the business but is too often hampered by it instead. Network management as most practice it now is too complex and inefficient. The solution is automation.
