The Secure Data Center is a place in the network (PIN) where a company centralizes data and performs services for business. Data centers contain hundreds to thousands of physical and virtual servers that are segmented by applications, zones, and other methods. This guide addresses data center business flows and the security used to defend them. The Secure Data Center is one of the six places in the network within SAFE. SAFE is a holistic approach in which Secure PINs model the physical infrastructure and Secure Domains represent the operational aspects of a network.

Robots play a major role in making manufacturing processes more efficient and
less labor intensive. They can help control costs and improve quality, as well as
increase productivity. The complexity of robotic system design, however, creates
obstacles for many manufacturers, and this is made more difficult by the need to
identify and integrate subsystems from multiple vendors.
NexCOBOT, a NEXCOM company, offers a flexible, modular robotics solution
integrating artificial intelligence (AI) with machine vision and powered by the
new Intel® Vision Accelerator Design products. The solution brings together
the insight of artificial intelligence, the mobility of robotics, and the capabilities
of machine vision, providing a new level of precision and optimization for
manufacturing and industrial implementations

As data science becomes a critical capability for companies, IT leaders are finding themselves responsible for enabling data science teams with infrastructure and tooling. But data science is much more like an experimental research organization than the engineering and business teams that IT organizations support today.

This guide will quickly help you understand what data science teams do to build their predictive models and how to best support them.
Learn how to modernize IT’s approach to ensure your company’s data science teams perform their best, and maximize impact to the business. Some highlights include:
Why data science should not be treated like engineering.
How to go beyond simple infrastructure allocation and give data science teams capabilities to manage their workflows and model lifecycle.
Why agility and special hardware to support burst computing are so important to data science break

can be tough. Despite this challenge, Pendleton has managed to stay
relevant even during the hottest days of the year thanks to Bluecore.
“In June and July, having Bluecore send people emails based on
what they browsed is especially helpful because we don’t have as
many messages or new products going out. So as often as people
come to our site is as often as they’ll get emails, and those emails are
guaranteed to be relevant to them. If the onus was on blast emails,
then we’d be showing people products that are not necessarily

A range of application security tools was developed to support the efforts to secure the enterprise from the threat posed by insecure applications. But in the ever-changing landscape of application security, how does an organization choose the right set of tools to mitigate the risks their applications pose to their environment? Equally important, how, when, and by whom are these tools used most effectively?
Today, when you make decisions about information technology (IT) security priorities, you must often strike a careful balance between business risk, impact, and likelihood of incidents, and the costs of prevention or cleanup. Historically, the most well-understood variable in this equation was the methods that hackers used to disrupt or invade the system.
Countless studies and analyst recommendations suggest the value of improving security during the software development life cycle rather than trying to address vulnerabilities in software discovered after widespread adoption and deployment. The justification is clear.For software vendors, costs are incurred both directly and indirectly from security flaws found in their products. Reassigning development resources to create and distribute patches can often cost software vendors millions of dollars, while successful exploits of a single vulnerability have in some cases caused billions of dollars in losses to businesses worldwide. Vendors blamed for vulnerabilities in their product's source code face losses in credibility, brand image, and competitive advantage.
The Business Case for Data Protection, conducted by Ponemon Institute and sponsored by Ounce Labs, is the first study to determine what senior executives think about the value proposition of corporate data protection efforts within their organizations. In times of shrinking budgets, it is important for those individuals charged with managing a data protection program to understand how key decision makers in organizations perceive the importance of safeguarding sensitive and confidential information.
Application modernization is a powerful method for extending the life and improving the business value of a company's critical application assets. It provides an attractive and cost effective alternative to application development, enabling companies to defer investment in replacement initiatives without compromising business support.
