"Every kind of online interaction—website visits, API calls to mobile apps, and others—is being attacked by bots. Whether it's fraud, scraping, spam, DDoS, espionage, shilling, or simply altering your SEO ranking, bots are wreaking havoc on websites as well as mobile and business applications.
But that’s not all: they’re also messing with your business intelligence (BI). They can skew audience metrics, customer journeys and even ad buys, making business decisions questionable and costly. According to Forrester, ad fraud alone was set to exceed $3.3 billion in 2018.
Not all bots are bad. In fact, your business depends on them. Search engine bots, for example, give your web presence visibility and authority online. Other good bots help you deliver better customer experiences—perhaps a chatbot provides instant customer assistance on your site. What’s important is enabling the good bots and blocking the bad ones."

In this case study, a large enterprise with an increasing amount
of off-site work from both work-related travel and a fast-growing
remote workforce, is faced with a unique challenge to ensure
their data security is scalable and impenetrable. Their data access
policies rely on physical access management provided at the
company offices and do not always provide off-site employees
with the ability to complete work-critical tasks. Legacy security
solutions only add burden to productivity, sometimes causing
employees to ignore security protocols in order to simply
complete their work. Upon evaluating security vendors for a
frictionless solution, they selected BehavioSec for its enterprise-grade capabilities with on-premise deployment and integration
with existing legacy risk management systems.
"SD-WAN largely exists today to support two key enterprise transformations: multicloud and the software-defined branch (SD-Branch).
Multicloud has changed the center of gravity for enterprise applications, and with that, has changed traffic patterns too. No longer does traffic need to flow to enterprise data center sites or central internet peering points and breakouts. That’s because most traffic from users and devices in the enterprise campus and branch today goes to cloud-based applications scattered across a host of clouds.
It’s neither economical nor efficient to haul traffic over WAN-dedicated links to a central enterprise site. So to optimize the cost and performance of multicloud-bound traffic, modern WAN edge routers, often called customer premises equipment (CPE), are now equipped with hybrid WAN links and routing. Hybrid WAN interfaces may include WAN provider-dedicated links such as MPLS, as well as direct internet links over xDSL, broadband and 4G/LTE wireless."

The building products / construction industry is more visibly representative of the health of the economy than any other. The avatar of the Great Recession may well be images of doomed projects on abandoned construction sites. As such, it’s unavoidable for leaders of building products distributors to experience market-induced anxiety as a matter of course.
2020 looms as the start of a new decade but many analysts fear it will also mark the end of the building boom. Recent indicators point to a slowdown at least. The existential question: what areas of building products distribution are ripe for reimagination, safeguarding against ambiguous market conditions now and in the future?
This whitepaper provides the answers with a playbook that reveals where margins and revenue leak in most B2B distribution companies and provides reimagined strategies for retaining and growing share through price optimization, deal management and costing guidance.

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

The scalability of its EP-LAN lets MMC Corp seize new opportunities without adding infrastructure. For example, Scales and Trusler are looking at virtual desktops or virtual desktop image [VDI] files for some offices and even job sites. “We’ll probably have to scale some bandwidth internally for that,” Trusler notes, “but if we do the VDI internally or we do it with an external third party, it doesn’t really matter… because we can get them on that EP-LAN network and we can get the bandwidth that we need… quickly.”
EP-LAN is scalable. In most cases, adding additional services at a specific customer location can easily be turned up by Spectrum Enterprise remotely. Choosing a fiber EP-LAN over MPLS not only met the challenge to connect MMC Corp locations: it created an IT platform that continues to scale to support rapid expansion and innovation.

While the shift from disk to digital offers tremendous potential opportunities, it also presents a host
of new challenges for gaming companies. As the online channel grows increasingly complex and the pace
of innovation accelerates, many companies struggle to keep up. Not only are there websites and storefronts
to manage, but also real-time gaming servers, large software downloads, and live-streamed competitions and
events. Games are transforming from fixed, boxed products to dynamic, ongoing services – with frequently
updated content, in-game micro-transactions, virtual goods and social interactions. Mobile adds another
dimension to the trend, as consumers increasingly look to play on smart phones and tablets – or on multiple
screens across devices.
To successfully navigate this complex and changing landscape, gaming companies need an agile,
high- performance infrastructure that allows them to turn the Internet into a reliable and effective
online distribution channel. This requires f
Unternehmen in jedem Sektor hängen zunehmend von Anwendungen ab, die alles vom BackEnd-Betrieb bis zur Bereitstellung neuer Produkte, Services und Kundenerlebnisse steuern. Aus diesem Grund sind die Systemverfügbarkeit der Infrastruktur und die Vermeidung ungeplanter Ausfallzeiten wichtiger denn je. Aktuelle Studien zeigen, dass die durchschnittlichen Kosten für eine Stunde Ausfallzeit etwa eine halbe Million US-Dollar betragen1 – mit steigender Tendenz angesichts der zunehmenden Digitalisierung in allen Branchen.
