Two of the oldest and most common attacks used against web applications, SQL injection attacks and cross-site scripting attacks (XSS), continue to impact thousands of websites and millions of users each year. Finding these exposures quickly is essential in order to prevent system compromise and avoid information leakage. SIEM solutions can be invaluable in this effort by collecting and correlating the data you need to identify patterns that signal an attack.
Modern marketers have access to endless amounts of data and limited time to process and analyse it. Transforming it into something that offers real value is essential and the basis for marketing success.

As organizations continue to look for ways to increase business agility, a need for a modern database architecture that can rapidly respond to the needs of business is more apparent than ever. While an RDBMS still serves as a lifeline for many organizations, the adoption of technologies such as NoSQL and Hadoop are enabling organizations to best address database performance and scalability requirements while also satisfying the goals of embracing hybrid cloud and becoming more data-driven. And with organizations relying so heavily on these new technologies to yield rapid insights that positively impact the business, the need to evaluate how those new technologies are managed and protected is essential. Hadoop and NoSQL workloads are now pervasive in production environments and require “production-class” data protection, yet few data protection solutions offer such capabilities today.
The rise of data privacy regulations and the increasing risk of data theft have made data protection an essential part of any data-driven strategy.
This executive summary gives you a quick overview of the risks and regulations related to data privacy, and a framework for addressing both without compromising on customer experience.
With 50+ percent of all business processes leveraging batch operations, it is essential to keep your batch production running smoothly in order to keep your business running smoothly. Whether you are consolidating datacenter operations, moving apps to more cost-effective platforms, or transitioning from customized to packaged applications, learn how you can simplify and lower the cost of batch management with a single interface to all batch processes across platforms and applications and more.
"As the rapid rise in the number of mobile devices and users creates an explosion in data and virtual machine instances, datacenter transformation becomes imperative for many enterprises. It is essential enterprises move to consolidate resources and cut both capital and operating costs while still providing support for distributed applications.
This brief white paper delves into a Q&A with Eric Sheppard, research director of IDC’s Storage Software program, on integrated systems and whether you should buy compute, network, and storage resources together. Read on as you will discover:
What integrated systems are, and its benefits
The differences between an integrated platform and integrated infrastructure

Application performance management (APM) tools allow enterprises to proactively manage their investments in bandwidth and the business-critical applications used every day. An application performance management solution is recognized as an essential component of WAN optimization-techniques that help businesses get the best possible performance from existing networks.
However, building a business case for an application performance management solution requires more than a belief in its benefits. It requires some data to quantify the value of a bottom-line result.
This white paper reviews ten business scenarios in which application performance management solutions are used to monitor applications across the WAN deliver a quantifiable Return on Investment (ROI). Example cases and calculations are provided for each scenario, describing how companies have quantified the value of an APM solution in that area.

When it comes to performance, Azure SQL
Database is built for you, the developer. Azure
SQL Database is designed to make your work
easier and let you focus on other priorities.
It scales on the fly, without downtime, with
capabilities that make it great for building
multitenant software as a service (SaaS) apps.
Plus, it learns and adapts to your database
workload, whatever that may be, using built-in
intelligence to continually adjust and improve
That said, there’s more to a successful app than
impressive performance. That’s why we built
Azure SQL Database to be just as intelligent in
other areas, such as availability and security,
so that you won’t need to worry about those
essentials either. Finally, we built Azure SQL
Database to let you work the way you want,
using the tools and platforms you prefer. It’s
why we call Azure SQL Database the intelligent
database for developers. Read on to learn more,
and we’re sure you’ll agree.

If you’re like most developers, you spend about two-thirds of your time building and the rest of your
time learning. Sometimes your research is proactive, based on personal interest or a desire to maintain
your skills, but more likely it’s out of necessity—learning what you need to tackle your next big project.
Not long ago, new projects assumed an on-premises or hosted approach, forcing you to spend
considerable time on essential requirements like scalability, availability, and security. Today, you still
must deliver on those essentials, but the apps you’re building need to do a lot more: support millions
of users, span the globe, make sense of petabytes of data, and delight users in new ways.
Cloud services not only deliver “built-in” scalability and availability, but also provide an unprecedented
range of prebuilt functionality for driving innovation into your apps—ready to evaluate for your next
project, without your having to worry about physical infrastructure and the related ove

When you’re in the software
business, your resources can be
spread pretty thin.
You like to stay focused on building great
software, but there are always distractions—
from supporting sales opportunities to
