“More than 70 percent of cyber attacks target small businesses," according to National Cyber Security Alliance estimates. That’s not surprising when you consider how many small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) still rely on legacy AV tools despite their repeated failures to stop modern malware, ransomware, and zero-day attacks. Legacy AV is a lose-lose-lose proposition for SMBs. Attacks get through and cause damage. IT staff struggle to keep up with endless signature file updates from their AV vendors. End-users complain about sluggish system performance during scans and signature file updates. Fortunately, next-generation solutions are now available that protect endpoints with artificial intelligence (AI) rather than signatures. Ready to learn more? Then read the new eSecurity Planet executive brief sponsored by BlackBerry Cylance.
Year-end performance reviews don’t reflect the feedback and development needs of modern workers.

Email marketing is one of the best performing marketing channels online. According to the DMA, for every dollar spent on email marketing, you can expect a return on investment of $43. But it's not as simple as sending an email to a list to get this sort of result.
In the broadening data center cost-saving and energy efficiency discussion, data center physical infrastructure preventive maintenance (PM) is sometimes neglected as an important tool for controlling TCO and downtime. PM is performed specifically to prevent faults from occurring. IT and facilities managers can improve systems uptime through a better understanding of PM best practices.
Deploying a performance management
system is a powerful catalyst for increasing
employee and organizational performance.
If not handled properly, however, organizations
risk creating unnecessary administrative work
which can diminish some of the benefits. A key
challenge is to balance the tension between
creating a fair and consistent evaluation
process across the organization and measuring
employee performance based on individual
needs. What best practices should you follow to
help strike the right balance? How have other
leading organizations designed effective review
forms and processes?

The media and entertainment industry
was valued at $1.81 trillion in 2016,
and is expected to reach $2.14 trillion
by 2020. Activities within this industry
have grown over the last couple of years,
and now range from creating content for
movies, TV and games, to delivering that
content. This is increasingly performed
via on-demand data networks rather
than traditional over-the-air broadcasting,
watched over high resolution displays that
enhance the overall viewing experience
of the user, and even the latter is
being delivered from the same storage
repositories. Media production is also
now prevalent in areas not traditionally
associated with this activity, such as
training, museums, and education.

The Secure Data Center is a place in the network (PIN) where a company centralizes data and performs services for business. Data centers contain hundreds to thousands of physical and virtual servers that are segmented by applications, zones, and other methods. This guide addresses data center business flows and the security used to defend them. The Secure Data Center is one of the six places in the network within SAFE. SAFE is a holistic approach in which Secure PINs model the physical infrastructure and Secure Domains represent the operational aspects of a network.
When companies invest in a performance center of excellence, it can take up to three years before it starts paying dividends back. As a result, customers are happier, outages are a seemingly rare occurrence, and performance becomes prioritized as a standard policy for application development and deployment.
Service virtualization tools simulate software components so end-to-end testing can proceed even when dependent components are not available. That means teams can perform integration tests sooner and more often, accelerating the delivery of high-quality, thoroughly tested applications.
Sicherheit und Performance wurden einst als separate Aspekte angesehen, für die ganz unterschiedliche Lösungen erforderlich sein sollten. Cyberkriminelle haben jedoch neue und überaus effektive Möglichkeiten gefunden, die Ihre Website in beiderlei Hinsicht gefährden.

The Cisco SD-WAN solution is a cloud-delivered overlay WAN architecture that enables digital and cloud transformation at enterprises. It significantly reduces WAN costs and time to deploy new services, and, builds a robust security architecture crucial for hybrid networks. Enterprises today face major user experience problems for SaaS applications on account of networking problems. The centralized Internet exit architecture is inefficient and results in poor SaaS performance. And branch sites are running out of capacity to handle Internet traffic which is a concern because more than 50% of branch traffic is destined to the cloud. More importantly there are many dynamic changes in Internet gateways and the SaaS hosting servers that lead to unpredictability in performance. The Cisco SD-WAN solution solves these problems by creating multiple Internet exit points, adding high bandwidth at branch locations, and dynamically steering around problems in real-time, resulting is an optimal SaaS
