For many years, organizations thought about business continuity in much the same way they thought about business insurance — yes, it was important, but rarely was it top of mind. But that’s all changed. Many organizations have, unfortunately, discovered that even a scant few minutes of service downtime can have deleterious effects on their business operations, resulting in lost revenue, diminished customer confidence and heightened compliance risk.
For those and other reasons, IT executives have raised the bar on business continuity preparedness for their organizations in all ways. New technologies, business processes and partnerships, combined with a raised level of importance for testing and a full appreciation of what virtualization can and can’t do for business continuity, are essential to new thinking around avoiding the impact
of an unplanned service interruption.

The cloud — at one point it was a revolution in the workplace. Now it is simply accepted as an efficient way to get business done.
Most of today’s IT security was built to protect a well-defined network infrastructure, but that is yesterday’s architecture. When users and assets move outside the network perimeter where the traditional security stack can no longer protect them, your enterprise is exposed to an entirely new set of risks. And with more apps and sensitive data living in the cloud or on mobile devices, gaps emerge that leave organizations susceptible to attacks.
Read this flipbook to see how you can take your security to new heights. We'll explain the challenges driving the shift in the market and how you can take advantage of these changes and improve security for your organization.
This report outlines the reasons that organizations choose not to upgrade ERP solutions, and
cautions against this approach, by supplying research that illustrates the benefits of keeping
your ERP current and up-to-date.
A multi-cloud world is quickly becoming the new normal for many enterprises. But embarking on a cloud journey and managing cloud-based services across multiple providers can seem overwhelming.
Even the term multi-cloud can be confusing. Multi-cloud is not the same as hybrid cloud. The technical definition of hybrid cloud is an environment that includes traditional data centers with physical servers, private cloud with virtualized servers as well as public cloud provisioned by service providers. Quite often, multi-cloud simply means that an organization uses multiple public clouds from many vendors to deliver its IT services. In other words, organizations can have a multi-cloud without having a hybrid cloud, or they can have a multi-cloud as part of a hybrid cloud.

Today, hybrid cloud is increasingly the norm, and enterprises are challenged with ways to have visibility, manage and make use of all this data – both on-premises and in the cloud. While much attention has been given to primary data affecting mission-critical workloads, data for secondary workloads – backup, test/dev, disaster recovery, and archiving to name a few – have become siloed the same way application data has, leading to multiple point solutions to manage an increasing amount of data.
This white paper looks at the evolution of these challenges and offers practical advice on ways to store, manage and move secondary data in hybrid cloud architectures while extracting the hidden value it can provide. Download to learn more.

organizations that are in the process of
enabling a Microsoft Azure public cloud
platform, then you might be struggling
with the guardrails needed to secure

time enabling flexibility for the teams
consuming cloud services.
While the Azure platform is already
very secure, it also allows a great deal
of flexibility in configuration. In order
to avoid accidentally creating security
holes and out-of-control spend, a
Governance Framework is required. We
created the AHEAD Azure Governance

As digital business evolves, however, we’re finding that the best form of security and enablement will likely remove any real responsibility from users. They will not be required to carry tokens, recall passwords or execute on any security routines. Leveraging machine learning, artificial intelligence, device identity and other technologies will make security stronger, yet far more transparent. From a security standpoint, this will lead to better outcomes for enterprises in terms of breach prevention and data protection. Just as important, however, it will enable authorized users in new ways. They will be able to access the networks, data and collaboration tools they need without friction, saving time and frustration. More time drives increased employee productivity and frictionless access to critical data leads to business agility. Leveraging cloud, mobile and Internet of Things (IoT) infrastructures, enterprises will be able to transform key metrics such as productivity, profitabilit
