"Every kind of online interaction—website visits, API calls to mobile apps, and others—is being attacked by bots. Whether it's fraud, scraping, spam, DDoS, espionage, shilling, or simply altering your SEO ranking, bots are wreaking havoc on websites as well as mobile and business applications.
But that’s not all: they’re also messing with your business intelligence (BI). They can skew audience metrics, customer journeys and even ad buys, making business decisions questionable and costly. According to Forrester, ad fraud alone was set to exceed $3.3 billion in 2018.
Not all bots are bad. In fact, your business depends on them. Search engine bots, for example, give your web presence visibility and authority online. Other good bots help you deliver better customer experiences—perhaps a chatbot provides instant customer assistance on your site. What’s important is enabling the good bots and blocking the bad ones."
"The fast pace of innovation demanded by today’s digital businesses challenges traditional processes for the deployment and governance
of application delivery and supporting infrastructure. To address the increased pace of change, many organizations are transforming by adopting DevOps: a set of practices which employs continuous integration processes, breaking down the silos between development and operations teams.
As cycle times accelerate, and development teams adopt more Agile delivery methodologies, the traditional model for application security can be a drag on the speed and agility inherent in a continuous integration process. This creates a natural friction. Security teams can be perceived as slowing down or blocking delivery. At the same time, however, the apps are exposed to significant threats.
The goal of continuous integration is to deliver more frequent releases with more new capabilities to market, faster. It’s all about speed."
Today’s security appliances and agents must wait until malware reaches the perimeter or endpoint before they can detect or prevent it. OpenDNS arrests attacks earlier in the kill chain. Enforcing security at the DNS layer prevents a malicious IP connection from ever being established or a malicious file from ever being downloaded. This same DNS layer of network security can contain malware and any compromised system from exfiltrating data. Command & control (C2) callbacks to the attacker’s botnet infrastructure are blocked over any port or protocol. Unlike appliances, the cloud service protects devices both on and off the corporate network. Unlike agents, the DNS layer protects every device connected to the network — even IoT. It is the easiest and fastest layer of security to deploy everywhere.
"We live and surf in a cyber world where attacks like APT, DDOS, Trojans and Ransomware are common and easy to execute. Domain names are an integral part of any business today and apparently an integral part of an attacker's plan too.
Domain names are carriers of malwares, they act as Command and Control servers and malware's ex-filtrate data too. In today's threat landscape - predicting threats, spotting threats and mitigating them is super crucial.. This is called Visibility and Analytics.
Watch this on demand session with our Cisco cloud security experts Shyam Ramaswamy and Fernando Ferrari as they talk about how Cisco Umbrella and The Umbrella Research team detect anomalies, block threats and identify compromised hosts. The experts also discuss how effectively Cisco spot, react, filter out IOC, block the network communications of a malware; identify and stop a phishing campaign (unknown ones too).
Users are working off-hours, off-network, and off-VPN. Are you up on all the ways DNS can be used to secure them? If not, maybe it’s time to brush up. More than 91% of malware uses DNS to gain command and control, exfiltrate data, or redirect web traffic. Because DNS is a protocol used by all devices that connect to the internet, security at the DNS layer is critical for achieving the visibility and protection you need for any users accessing the internet. Learn how DNS-layer security can help you block threats before they reach your network or endpoints.

The most important component for brand relevance and long-term customer relationships is the ability of an organization to deliver captivating experiences that feel personal, every time. Roughly 90% of senior marketers worldwide are implementing personalization strategies…but only 6% rate their strategy as advanced. Winning this race to delivering authentic personalization requires more than a random mix of technology tools. You need a strong web experience foundation that fuels your personalization strategy. Using a variety of digital marketing tools may help you perform specific functions well, but without having them talk to each other, it’s difficult to personalize experiences—which leaves you defaulting to static web pages with generic information. Using the support of a rock-solid web foundation, you can bring uniformity to your digital properties and over just the right experiences to your customers again and again.

While flash storage can enhance the performance of your applications, there are three potential roadblocks to realizing the full value from a flash investment:
• Storage network capacity
• Storage architecture
Vish Mulchand is Senior Director of Product Management and Marketing for Storage, Hewlett Packard Enterprise.
One of the few places that pervasive Wi-Fi is not found these days is in US Federal Government office buildings and military bases. Government IT departments explain this lack of modern technology by pointing to Information Assurance (IA) departments who block their planned deployments because of security concerns. IA departments, on the other hand, point to unclear rules, regulations, and policies around Wi-Fi use which prevent them from making informed risk decisions.
Today’s data centers are expected to deploy, manage, and report on different tiers of business applications, databases, virtual workloads, home
directories, and file sharing simultaneously. They also need to co-locate multiple systems while sharing power and energy. This is true for large as
