Play to strengths and know your weaknesses
Prioritize for Bottom Line Value
Design a Process to Support Desired Outcomes
IBM QRadar and BigFix solutions empower IT security teams to view, prioritize and respond to endpoint intelligence in near real time.
How can an organization stay ahead of these advanced security threats? Maintaining a high level of baseline security by consistently enforcing security policies and patch levels on endpoints and servers is definitely required and important. But when networks can have multiple vulnerabilities per IP address at scan time, the slow process of mitigating and patching these weaknesses can result in dangerous security gaps. Today’s IT personnel have to make difficult, risk-based decisions on where to focus their efforts—often without having a complete picture of the security environment. This is even more critical when the number of vulnerabilities across the organization is increasing while the organization has limited resources and skills to fix the vulnerabilities.
Oracle Engineered Systems are architected to work as a unified whole, so organizations can hit the ground running after deployment. Organizations choose how they want to consume the infrastructure: on-premises, in a public cloud, or in a public cloud located inside the customer’s data center and behind their firewall using Oracle’s “Cloud at Customer” offering. Oracle Exadata and Zero Data Loss Recovery Appliance (Recovery Appliance) offer an attractive alternative to do-it-yourself deployments. Together, they provide an architecture designed for scalability, simplified management, improved cost of ownership, reduced downtime, zero-data loss, and an increased ability to keep software updated with security and patching.

Patches correct bugs, flaws and provide enhancements, which can prevent potential user impact, improve user experience and potentially save your technicians time researching and repairing issues that could have already been resolved or prevented with an existing update. Clients generally understand that their systems need to be patched, but they likely do not have the expertise to comfortably approve and install patches without help. When operating within the IT services industry, patching is one of the first areas that competitors auditing your clients will assess. Developing best practices to manage the risks associated with the approval and deployment of patches is critical to your IT department's service offering.

The days of monolithic application development are over.
And while “digital transformation” may sound like a fancy
buzzword that ranks alongside blockchain, agile, and cloud, it’s
not all hype. With transformation comes unprecedented levels
of speed, consistency, and efficiency that are fundamentally
changing the way developers do their jobs.
Yes, that includes you.
Much of the burden and pressure to deliver on the promises made
by the business falls on the shoulders of IT developers. In a world
where users demand new applications, features, and updates
across all their devices in real time, container technology is your
secret weapon. Containers let you work smarter by creating
consistent development environments to rapidly develop and
deliver cloud-native applications that can run anywhere. With
containers, you can also deliver microservices that eliminate
lengthy regression testing cycles, deploy without disruption,
and provide a mechanism for patching or rolling back code on
As long as there is software, there will be software vulnerabilities and you will find malware and cybercriminals. This paper will examine that risk and provide a step by step process to protect your companies critical assets.
McAfee® Database Activity Monitoring automatically finds databases on your network, protects them with preconfigured defenses, and helps you build a custom security policy for your environment making it easier to demonstrate compliance to auditors.
McAfee® Virtual Patching for Databases shields databases from the risk presented by unpatched vulnerabilities by detecting and preventing attempted attacks and intrusions in real time without requiring database downtime or application testing.
Databases don’t take the day off. Neither do we. McAfee security experts remain focused on keeping your sensitive information safe and available while helping your company ensure compliance with internal policies and industry regulations.
McAfee® Vulnerability Manager for Databases automatically discovers networked databases; determines if the latest patches have been applied; and tests for common weaknesses, making it easier to demonstrate compliance and better protect critical data.
Customization is the toughest part of maintaining an environment that keeps users productive. You have to make every desktop, whether physical or virtual, exactly right for each user without crushing IT administration resources that are already stretched to the limit.Quest Workspacetm Desktop Authority ®-part of Quest's User Workspace Management solution-gives you a single console to configure, manage, secure and support each user's unique workspace-including the most targeted mix possible of resources, security requirements, applications, peripherals and even Outlook settings-wherever that user logs in. Desktop Authority complements traditional desktop management-focused on software deployment and asset tracking-with true user environment management for companies of all sizes and all infrastructures.
This whitepaper will provide an overview of cloud computing, identify some challenges and considerations for using the cloud, and will look at how best to manage a combination of physical and virtual systems throughout your infrastructure in order to support your business objectives.
