Tech advances like the cloud, mobile technology, and the app-based software model have changed the way today’s modern business operates.
They’ve also changed the way criminals attack and steal from businesses. Criminals strive to be agile in much the same way that companies do. Spreading malware is a favorite technique among attackers. According to the 2019 Data Breach Investigations Report, 28% of data breaches included malware.¹
While malware’s pervasiveness may not come as a surprise to many people, what’s not always so well understood is that automating app attacks—by means of malicious bots —is the most common way cybercriminals commit their crimes and spread malware. It helps them achieve scale.
Das Thema Sicherheit droht, sich für Unternehmen zum Problem zu entwickeln. Die Zahl der Sicherheitsbedrohungen nimmt zu und die Angriffe werden immer raffinierter. Neue Technologien wie das IoT, mobile Lösungen und Hybrid IT-Umgebungen bieten zwar neue Geschäftschancen, bringen aber auch neue Risiken mit sich. Heutzutage reicht es daher nicht mehr aus, die Server auf Softwareebene zu schützen. Unternehmen müssen den Schutz bis auf die physischen Systeme ausweiten, um gegen Sicherheitsbedrohungen gewappnet zu sein. Angesichts der immer größeren Zahl an regulatorischen Bestimmungen im heutigen Geschäftsumfeld gewinnt die Einhaltung dieser Bestimmungen an Bedeutung – zum einen, um das
Sicherheitsniveau zu verbessern, zum anderen, um die Kosten zu senken, die durch die Nichteinhaltung dieser Bestimmungen entstehen. Da diese Aspekte von so kritischer Bedeutung sind, ist es wichtig, den Schutz der Hardware zu verbessern und das Sicherheitsniveau bis auf Lieferkettenebene zu erhöhen.

This white paper explores how CIOs and business leaders need to think much more broadly about how their technology fits into a global network of services due to the rise of cloud infrastructure, software as a service, the global data footprint, and mobile apps.
There’s no denying that today’s workforce is “mobile.” Inspired by the ease and simplicity of their own personal devices, today’s workforce relies on a variety of tools to accomplish their business tasks — desktops, smart phones, tablets, laptops or other connected devices — each with varying operating systems.
The specific tasks they need to accomplish? That depends on the person. But it’s safe to say remotely logging in and out of legacy, desktop, mobile, software as-a-service (SaaS) and cloud applications is a given.
And the devices on which they work? They could be owned by the enterprise or the end user, with varying levels of company oversight, security and management. The result? An overabundance of “flexibility” that leads to fundamental IT challenges of security and manageability.
The customer experience is critical in today’s fast-paced, demanding world. With so many options at the buyer’s fingertips and the rise of social sharing media, one bad customer experience can haunt an organization. According to” The Forrester Wave™: Dynamic Case Management, Q1 2016” report, in order to improve customer experience, firms must tackle the incident process through smart handling of exceptions, applying analytics for context, and offering real-time and mobile interaction. Here is where dynamic case management (DCM) can be a competitive advantage and Forrester identified 14 of the most significant vendors across 21 criteria in this space with Pegasystems among vendors who lead the pack.

Employees are increasingly using bring-your-own devices (BYOD) to work and accessing corporate IT resources from home. Until now, management of BYOD within IT was piecemeal, with most organizations cob¬bling together solutions that included mobile device management software, unified access suites, security, and hardware. Read this technology brief to learn how Windows Server 2012 R2 takes the guesswork and integration out of BYOD security and administration, providing one point of control and management for IT organizations.
Enabling business value through the Mobile Web requires new thinking as well as a shift in technology. Putting “mobile first” and implementing services-based architectures are among the critical steps. The options are limited only to the imaginations of the designers but must be driven by the user’s context.

While just about everyone is writing about how IT and the businesses it serves need to be transformed, the actual industry answers to both digital and IT transformation remain unclear at best. Are transformational initiatives all about analytics and big data? Or are they about the move to cloud in all its varieties? Support for mobile? More agile ways of working and developing software? Or are they actually all about crafting teams to promote more proactive dialog between the business and IT?
The truth is, of course, digital and IT transformation depend on all of the above and more. They also depend on a resilient infrastructure that’s easily adapted to changing business priorities without requiring long hours spent on maintenance, updates, and addressing problems of service availability. But making all this work clearly and cohesively is far beyond the purview of almost any solution today—whether from a software management perspective or from a hardware infrastructure perspective.

Technology has become the heart and soul of every business. The hardware boundaries of IT have exploded beyond data centers, with mobile devices in the hands of both employees and customers alike. Application options have blossomed, from traditional to open source to software-as-a-service. Business has
become global, bringing with it a demand for round-the-clock agility. Employees expect that the applications they use at work should be as easy to use as the Web apps they use at home. Integration remains difficult, because it’s sometimes impossible to know what will happen when someone tries to pluck one strand out of the pile. IT workload and system complexity will only get more challenging, bringing the need for disintermediation
through service automation.

APIs are a critical component of digital business—empowering developers to build apps across any channel and enabling partners to incorporate your data or services into their offerings. By making it easier for other organizations to access your services, you create value and growth opportunities.
In the application economy, speed, innovation and quality have become table stakes. If you can’t meet your customers’ expectations, they will surely find a competitor who can. Whether your organization is in one of the sectors facing the most intense digital competition—insurance, banking, telecommunications or retail—or in a more traditional industry, how rapidly and successfully you embrace a software-driven digital transformation strategy will likely have a profound effect on your organization’s long term viability. Within this transformation sphere, the development of “omnichannel” or “digitally-connected multi-channel” capabilities is a key priority. CA Technologies can help you deliver a consistent, integrated and quality customer experience, regardless of how your customers choose to interact with you.
The ability to apply software to strategic advantage is the de? ning technology theme of this decade. This is not just an IT issue. It is a business imperative. Every business is in the software business. In some industries, the number of software jobs has doubled over the past ? ve years.

While some are still adjusting to the idea, you’re well aware that we’re living in an application economy. For the uninformed, an application economy is where everything is driven by a connected, mobile, application-based world where your customers are far more likely to experience your brand and interact with your enterprise through a software application than a live person. But, beyond the benefits, each day you’re feeling the pressure it exerts on your budget, resources and network.
You’ve seen this wave swell on the horizon, and now it’s arrived: executives are enthusiastic and asking about strategies, and line-of-business leaders are requesting faster dev times and more complex projects. Staking out your place as a leader in this new landscape will require you to develop and deliver high-impact applications faster than ever before.
Manch einer muss sich noch an den Gedanken gewöhnen, dass wir in einer Application Economy leben. Sie sind sich dessen bereits voll bewusst.
