Container adoption continues to grow as organizations look to transition from virtual machines to microservices-based architectures, known for their increased efficiency, portability, and scalability. But while containers afford an additional layer of security through their ability to isolate applications, a containerized environment is still susceptible to malicious attacks between containers or the within the shared resources of the underlying host.
Download this eBook to learn how you can develop a stronger security strategy for your AWS container deployments, from start to finish. Key takeaways include:
• Planning for maximum portability
• Setting permissions for users and system resources
• Creating an action plan based on log monitoring and IDS data
"Cloud-based predictive analytics platforms are a relatively new phenomenon, and they go far beyond
the remote monitoring systems of a prior generation. Three key features differentiate cloud-based
predictive analytics — data sharing, scope of monitoring, and use of artificial intelligence/machine
learning (AI/ML) to drive autonomous operations. To help familiarize the uninitiated with specifically
what types of value these systems can drive, IDC discusses them at some length in this white paper."

Organizations still struggle with communication between data owners and those responsible for administering DLP systems, leading to technology-driven — rather than business-driven — implementations.
Many clients who deploy enterprise DLP systems struggle to get out of the initial phases of discovering and monitoring data flows, never realizing the potential benefits of deeper data analytics or applying appropriate data protections.
DLP as a technology has a reputation of being a high-maintenance control — incomplete deployments are common, tuning is a never-ending process, lack of organization buy-in is low, and calculations of ROI are complex.
Small server rooms and branch offices are typically unorganized, unsecure, hot, unmonitored, and space constrained. These conditions can lead to system downtime or, at the very least, lead to “close calls” that get management’s attention. Practical experience with these problems reveals a short list of effective methods to improve the availability of IT operations within small server rooms and branch offices. This paper discusses making realistic improvements to power, cooling, racks, physical security, monitoring, and lighting. The focus of
this paper is on small server rooms and branch offices with up to 10kW of IT load.

The University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB) is a public research university and one of the 10 campuses of the University of California system. Its secondary storage was a combination of multiple point solutions. The UI/setup and maintenance was complex. Maintaining multiple licensing and maintenance agreements negatively impacted the administrative cost. The skyrocketing cost for additional backup capacity limited the team’s ability to expand their backup protection to many critical systems. With Cohesity's unified hyperconverged secondary storage platform, the IT team provided a single solution for all 13 departments to consolidate their backups on one platform, and scale-out as required. Read the case study and get details on how UCSB consolidated everything from backup to recovery, analytics to

This eBook offers a practical hands-on guide to “Day One” challenges of deploying, managing and monitoring PostgreSQL.
With the ongoing shift towards open-source database solutions, it’s no surprise that PostgreSQL is the fastest growing database. While it’s tempting to simply compare the licensing costs of proprietary systems against that of open source, it is both a misleading and incorrect approach when evaluating the potential for return on investment of a database technology migration.
An effective monitoring and logging strategy is critical for maintaining the reliability, availability, and performance of database environments.
The second section of this eBook provides a detailed analysis of all aspects of monitoring and logging PostgreSQL:
? Monitoring KPIs
? Metrics and stats
? Monitoring tools
? Passive monitoring versus active notifications

Michael Sherwood, CIO of City of Las Vegas, explains how implementing Darktrace’s Enterprise Immune System with its autonomous defense capability fundamentally transformed his team’s cyber security posture.
Whether upstream, midstream, or downstream, Darktrace can be deployed to protect oil and gas production and transportation. Remote deployments on rigs can include local modeling and analysis, as well as central correlation for security monitoring of all assets. Darktrace appliances can support low-bandwidth and inhospitable environments through the use of ruggedized industrial probes. With Darktrace’s Industrial Immune System, the entire infrastructure is visualized and protected, including Industrial IoT and ICS.
This paper describes key security aspects of developing and operating digital, cloud-based remote monitoring platforms that keep data private and infrastructure systems secure from attackers. This knowledge of how these platforms should be developed and deployed is helpful when evaluating the merits of remote monitoring vendors and their solutions.

Internet-of-things (IoT) is increasing in excitement across all industries as they look to provide innovation in their product and services, and monitor risks and costs in their business operations. But IoT is not a single technology. It is an ecosystem of human and non-human touchpoints that span across multiple technologies. This creates a dynamic and complex environment that is difficult to see and manage in scope.
The traditional monitoring approach of watching dashboards, responding to alerts, and manually analyzing doesn’t work anymore. Today’s hyper-dynamic, highly distributed IoT application environments have become way too complex and move too quickly. The volume, velocity, and variety of information is simply more than humans can keep up with using traditional tools.

UW-Superior’s IT team was looking to replace their outdated intrusion prevention system. After a full evaluation of AlienVault’s Unified Security Management™ (USM) platform, they decided to leverage it to meet their IDS needs. As the team became familiar with using AlienVault USM as their intrusion detection system, they began to implement the other tools that make up the USM platform. They realized that because so many security features were already included in USM, like behavioral monitoring, SIEM and vulnerability assessment, they would not have to purchase additional security tools that they previously thought they would need.

The Internet of Things (IoT) didn’t just connect everything everywhere; It laid the groundwork for the next industrial revolution.
Connected devices sending data was only one achievement of the IoT—but one that helped solve the problem of data spread across countless silos that was not collected because it was too voluminous and/or too expensive to analyze.
Now, with advances in cloud computing and analytics, cheaper and more scalable factory solutions are available. This, in combination with the cost and size of sensors continuously being reduced, supplies the other achievement: the possibility for every organization to digitally transform.
Using a Smart Factory system, all relevant data is aggregated, analyzed, and acted upon. Sensors, devices, people, and processes are part of a connected ecosystem providing:
• Reduced downtime
• Minimized surplus and defects • Deep insights
• End-to-end real-time visibility
