For mission-critical IT, service outages and data loss pose serious consequences. This white paper examines how availability management, disaster recovery and business continuity support one another and offers insight to find success at all of them.
Application vulnerabilities and risks must be weighed to identify resources, performance requirements and service level objectives to ensure business continuity. Using real-world case studies, this white paper examines Information Lifecycle Management (ILM) best practices for disaster preparedness.
The need for reliable hardware that can maintain continuous uptime 24/7 is even more important in a virtual infrastructure. If you are planning to use virtualization to implement business continuity or disaster recovery, ensuring you have the most reliable hardware is essential.
The Choices from many reputable suppliers of IT managed services can appear very much alike. Yet when you have a mission-critical business process whose function must not be interrupted, you know your requirements call for something above and beyond. This paper serves as a field guide to help you identify key characteristics that set a critical managed IT service apart from even highly capable general-purpose offerings.
Certainly server virtualization offers an elegant way to minimize planned downtime during routine software and hardware maintenance, or scheduled upgrades. But that addresses only part of the availability story.
The long migration to electronic health records (EHRs) in the U.S. is set to speed up with the funding authorized by the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act of 2009. But what are the specific risks when clinicians can’t access electronic health records? How far-reaching are the consequences when EHR data is lost, or its integrity is compromised? This paper looks at the mission-critical role of EHR systems, and introduces availability solutions that build in uptime protection to ensure the continuity of operation that both caregivers and patients can depend on.
Cloud computing allows companies to use IT resources as a service, taking advantage of shared applications, processing and storage managed within the cloud - either inside a private cloud at an internal data center, or in an external cloud at a service provider. Greater robustness of the virtualized servers supporting this new IT model will ensure a resilient cloud infrastructure capable of delivering "on-demand" access to users.

When considering business continuity and disaster recovery (BC/DR), a failed recovery means discontinued business. having systems inoperable and people unavailable for a matter of days or even hours can be disastrous in terms of lost revenue, customer dissatisfaction, and negative press. it is therefore critical to understand the root-causes behind why recoveries fail the first place.
When Katrina hit in 2005, Murphy Exploration and Production Company, USA was among the many companies impacted by the devastation. Challenged to implement a new infrastructure quickly with more business continuity considerations, Murphy deployed Virtuozzo across its server infrastructure.

SSL Certificates have been in use for almost 15 years, and they continue to serve a vital role in protecting data as it travels across the Internet and other networks. From online financial transactions to e-commerce to product development, SSL Certificates make it possible for users around the world to communicate sensitive information with the confidence that it is safe from malicious hackers. The Internet has evolved in innumerable ways over the past decade and a half; so why do SSL Certificates continue to instill trust? Simply put, SSL Certificates are very effective in protecting data in transit.
Yet, customers transacting on websites and systems that are protected by SSL security still face serious threats . One key reason for this danger: poor SSL Certificate management. Enterprises with hundreds of SSL Certificates from several different providers could lose track of certificates in their environment.
This white paper will present the pitfalls associated with poor SSL Certificate management, why they are potentially dangerous to the enterprise, and how enterprises can keep track of SSL Certificates effectively.
This Technology Spotlight examines these trends and discusses Symantec's approach to SSL certification along with critical issues related to managing certificates for greater efficiency, business continuity, and customer trust.
Symantec Certificate Intelligence Center discovers and monitors SSL certificates from any Certificate Authority as well as automates SSL certificate lifecycle management for operational efficiency and business continuity.

Which questions have you overlooked and why do the answers matter?
According to Gartner, “OT SRM (security and risk management) leaders must ask the right questions during the technology procurement process to achieve long-term success in their security investments.” Further, Gartner states, “Translating IT security practices and copying IT security technology will not result in a secure operational technology (OT) environment.”
By reading “7 Questions SRM Leaders Aren't Asking OT Security Providers,” you’ll learn which questions to ask, why they matter, and be armed with follow-up guidance to make smarter decisions. Questions covered include:
- Does the Solution Provide Asset Discovery to Enable Operational Continuity and System Integrity?
- Does the Solution Detect and Alert on Known Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures?
- Does Your Solution Provide IT Support in Addition to OT?
- Does Your Solution Support Secure IT/OT Alignment?

Expanding analytic capabilities are critical to digitizing the business, optimizing costs, accelerating innovation, and surviving digital disruption
Historically, manufacturers were almost solely focused on reducing costs by applying automation and analytics to engineering, R&D, manufacturing operations, and quality organizations. Even though the strategies used within these areas are still needed, they are not sufficient to ensure business survival and continuity in the age of Industry 4.0 and the IoT.
Today, it is paramount that smart manufacturers broaden their scope because disruptive innovations in data acquisition, storage, and analytics technology have enabled an entirely new degree of automation and virtualization, promising a complete 360-degree high-fidelity virtual data-driven integrated views of all operations—from suppliers and supply chains, through equipment, processes, and manufacturing practices, to final product testing and customer satisfaction.
