This guide details some of the major considerations when looking to secure cloud application use, the limitations of existing pointproducts, including traditional Secure Web Gateways (SWGs), and an overview of the integrated cloud security gateway approach that is needed to provide comprehensive, information-centric security as your data moves between your users and your cloud applications.

Scalability has always been an important characteristic of enterprise storage systems, maybe the most important, since the rationale of consolidating storage assumes that the system can easily grow with aggregate demand.
Your IT team is struggling with aging, inflexible, and complex infrastructure and processes that make it difficult to support new business needs or take advantage of cloud. Learn how you can transform your data infrastructure using flash storage to meet service level performance and availability, enabling your team to focus on the delivery of new applications and services.

Both the speed of innovation and the uniqueness of cloud technology is
forcing security teams everywhere to rethink classic security concepts
and processes. In order to keep their cloud environment secure,
businesses are implementing new security strategies that address the
distributed nature of cloud infrastructure.
Security in the cloud involves policies, procedures, controls, and
technologies working together to protect your cloud resources, which
includes stored data, deployed applications, and more. But how do you
know which cloud service provider offers the best security services? And
what do you do if you’re working on improving security for a hybrid or
This ebook provides a security comparison across the three main public
cloud providers: Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and
Google Cloud Platform (GCP). With insight from leading cloud experts,
we also analyze the differences between security in the cloud and
on-premises infrastructure, debunk
In some cases, adopting cloud IoT platform may make more sense where required processes, communication costs and cloud costs meet sufficient total cost of ownership against deploying MDC. Additionally, in situations that an end-user organization already has a secure room or a modular data center solution where infrastructure can be housed and/or the amount of infrastructure involved may be too small to benefit from power/cooling advantages of being housed in an MDC, the organization may not see a need for an MDC. An MDC is nothing more than a smaller form of a modular data center, and a number of providers have entered the modular data center solutions space in the past. These modular data center solution providers came into the market with high expectations for growth and ROI only to find that high sales were not forthcoming due to limited use cases, so many exited the space.
Enterprise security traditionally relied on a fortress strategy tha locked down user endpoints and created walls around the network. Today, this strategy cannot support or secure the use of mobile devices and SaaS capabilities, which exist outside the fortress. As a result, Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) have been looking for new solutions that can secure these technologies today, and adapt as threats and business needs change.
The credit card industry’s security model is one example that provides a new way to think about risk and contain it—that is, if you can see past the occasional bad rap it’s gotten from attacks and breaches.
IT organizations are no longer just a business support function and cost center—they are expected to drive business as part of the core corporate strategy. Adding to this, IT landscapes continue to increase in complexity, complicating management and innovation.
Digital transformation helps IT adapt to these changes. Building a hybrid or multi-cloud IT environment can help you transform successfully. An effective cloud environment can provide:
• Improved infrastructure management and flexibility
• More time for IT to focus on strategic projects rather than manage data centers.
• Better IT cost management
In fact, 49% of companies cite “modernized IT infrastructure and technologies with increased agility, flexibility, manageability, and security” as a digital initiative on their long-term roadmap.

IT is in the midst of one of its major transformations. IDC has characterized this paradigm shift as the “third platform,” driven by innovations in cloud, big data, mobility and social technologies. Progressive enterprises are seeking to leverage third-platform technologies to create new business opportunities and competitive differentiation through new products such as Dell EMC PowerEdge Servers powered by Intel® Xeon® Platinum processor and services, new business models and new ways of engaging customers.
Business and IT leaders agree. IT Transformation is critical to compete in
the digital economy. Drive innovation and agility, lower costs and speed
deployment for real results. Modernise with leading hyper-converged, cloud,
data storage, servers, open networking and data protection systems from

A new wave of application workloads and associated data traffic - related to virtualization, cloud, mobility, analytics, and social media — have placed unprecedented strain on the datacenter network and forced commensurate architectural and operational changes.
In today’s rapidly evolving world, the modern enterprise has the benefit of many technologies that were unheard of just 10 years ago – the cloud, for instance. However, with every new technology – cloud included – there are new security challenges. With huge numbers of users, devices and data deployed to take advantage of the latest technologies, the enterprise is becoming increasingly vulnerable to data loss, malicious attacks and network instability.
To meet the growing need for agility and flexibility, the data center components (compute, network and storage) also need to evolve and provide a level of automation and orchestration that can meet present and future demands.
