IBM is committed to putting data responsibility first and providing solutions
that are secure to the core for all customers. As such, IBM Cloud has fully
adopted the EU Data Protection Code of Conduct for Cloud Service providers
– meaning we agree to meet the entirety of its stringent requirements.
The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has arrived. Every company doing business with
European customers — regardless of location — must make considerable governance, people, process,
and technology changes to comply with the new rules. While companies have made progress, more work
remains. To succeed, they must tackle key challenges, including data identification, mapping, and access
management. Despite the work ahead, forward-looking businesses understand GDPR is an opportunity.
This is a transformation for a data-savvy world, with the potential to yield enhanced customer and
business benefits. Investment in solutions with data privacy, security, and compliance offerings that can
protect data no matter where it’s stored — on-premises and in the cloud — can ease companies along
their readiness journeys and help them achieve and sustain compliance from May 25, 2018, and onward
Trust can be viewed as a key factor amongst clients and service providers
working together towards preparing for readiness with the EU General
Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). These stringent regulations come into
force in May 2018 to ensure that personal data is processed adhering to strict
privacy and security requirements.
IT endpoint management used to be an easier game: Managers deployed user systems with custom images when employees were hired, and employees returned them on their last day at work. Even during deployment, users had minimal abilities to impact systems and devices that were centrally managed. Servers resided in physical data centers where they could be identified and accessed. Those were the days!
Cyberattacks are rapidly evolving. It is more critical
than ever that your company be protected by the
latest innovations in endpoint security. And if
you’re dealing with outdated antivirus solutions,

FINANCIAL SERVICES’ HISTORY OF DISRUPTION
Financial Services is an industry driven by disruption. Transformative business models such as low-cost brokerages, innovative investment products like ETFs, and the huge regulatory mandates like Gramm-Leach-Bliley are but a few examples. Here are some others:
• New fintech firms such as a recent nine billion dollar investment in Ant Financial Services Group and myriad other venture capital-led fintech startups targeting well established segments across the financial services industry
• Robo-advisor services powered by artificial intelligence and machine learning intermediating financial advisors and portfolio managers alike
• Ever changing regulatory and risk management mandates, such as GDPR, Basel III, and Open Banking, transforming customer engagement and capital allocation
Read this whitepaper to learn how you can overcome these and other disruptions.
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.

While it might be desirable to standardize end users on one or two types
of devices that all run the same operating system, most organizations
don’t have that luxury. Today’s users demand an extraordinary level of
flexibility and convenience—which means most organizations support a
vast assortment of endpoints, including laptops and desktops (both PCs
and Macs), tablets and hybrid devices, smartphones, and even wearables
and IoT devices.
IBM has established a global

Meaning it’s up to you to support a vast assortment of endpoints, including laptops and desktops (both PCs and Macs), tablets and hybrid devices, smartphones, and even the Internet of Things (IoT).
And not only do your users expect support for a wide variety of form factors, but they also require cross-platform support for all major platforms, including iOS and macOS, Android, and Windows.
To complicate the situation further, they run different versions of those platforms—for example, they may run Windows XP SP3, Windows 10, or anything in between.

"Managing and securing endpoints with conventional mobile device management (MDM) or enterprise mobile management (EMM) solutions is time-consuming and ineffective.
For this reason, global IT leaders are turning towards unified endpoint management (UEM) solutions to consolidate their management of smartphones, tablets, laptops and IoT devices into a single management console.
To increase operational efficiency, maximize data security and deliver on their digital transformation goals, they’ll need a UEM platform that does more than just promise success. The answer is a smarter solution, built for today, that brings new opportunities, threats, and efficiency improvements to the forefront.
With Watson™, IBM® MaaS360® UEM features cognitive insights, contextual analytics, and cloud-sourced benchmarking capabilities. It helps you make sense of daily mobile details while managing your endpoints, users, apps, document, and data from one platform."
The age of digital transformation is firmly here, and with it comes a seismic shift in how businesses must operate if they intend to stay relevant and profitable. Though the role of process in digital transformation is often over-hyped, in truth, it remains a critical element in the fight to win, serve, and retain customers. In this digital age, businesses must holistically reframe their investment in process automation. In short, a compelling vision for process excellence must underpin this digital transformation, thereby transforming customerfacing processes and digitizing operational processes.
The change is so profound that Forrester has renamed the category from business process management (BPM) to digital process automation (DPA). This shift, while continuing to drive down costs and drive up employee productivity, makes customer experience and digital transformation the primary success factors. This represents a powerful and necessary change of focus.

While threat prevention continues to improve with the use of advanced techniques, adversaries are outpacing these advances requiring security teams to implement threat detection and response programs. Security teams are often addressing the process haphazardly, using disconnected point tools and manual processes that consume too many analysts and result in slow mean-time to detection and response. While EDR has enabled security teams to take important steps forward for detection and response, ultimately it can only look at the endpoints which limits the scope of threats that can be detected and if something is detected, limits the view of who and what is affected and thus, how best to respond. ESG therefore recommends looking beyond the endpoint and utilizing natively integrated security solutions across more than just one vector to improve detection and response times. The more data you can knit together, the more effective you can be to uncover the security incidents most dangerous t
The goal of automation is not to eliminate or replace human labor, but to increase productivity and quality beyond what is possible with your existing team, so as to realize economies of scale and predictable quality levels. With automation, your team is able to manage more endpoints, because automation eliminates routine and mundane responsibilities or efforts, giving your technicians the time to focus on higher priority and more complex tasks. In addition, as a managed service provider (MSP), you receive a fixed fee for your services. As a result, you need to provide service in the most efficient way possible while delivering the highest levels of consistency and quality. Building automation into your IT services business will enable you to do so. In this eBook, you’ll learn tips and best practices to successfully incorporate automation into your IT services business, including:
There is a better way to master your client’s network, and it all begins with better network management strategies and tools that go beyond endpoint management alone. With these new solutions, you can drive down wait times through dynamic self-help options, see all of the device connections to take action before something goes wrong, and script out solutions for common problems—all from information in one easy and convenient place.
