Read how cloud technologies can help IT team’s transition from tactical systems administrators to strategic service brokers. In doing so, they can redefine their roles, transform their relationships with business groups, and help move organizational priorities forward.
Traditional backup systems provide a critical layer of insurance, but they represent all-or-nothing strategies that do not cover the minute by minute daily data writes to the disk. Continuous data protection fills in this gap by capturing changes to data while users are working. In the event of a data interruption, administrators can automatically reconstitute the data in reverse order to a point before it was corrupted or lost.
2008 brings with it new challenges and issues that network and systems administrators should be aware of, particularly vulnerabilities brought on by users. This white paper examines the top concerns which network security professionals should be prepared to face in 2008, and how they can be mitigated.

At the end of an academic year, many thousands of students may permanently leave a school or university system. Once these users graduate, discontinue their education, or perhaps simply move away, IT administrators are left with a huge number of accounts that must be marked as inactive and then dealt with according to system policies.

understanding of the solution’s architecture and security.
Within any organization, the most dangerous users are those with privileged access to the company’s
most valuable and sensitive data assets. This includes systems administrators, business managers,
partners, suppliers, and service providers, and also takes into account the automated interactions
between business machines, systems, and applications. Privileged access has always been a
high-risk issue, but for too long, organizations have not understood or have chosen to ignore the risks,
preferring instead to rely on the integrity of the individuals and systems involved.
A number of high-profile security breaches over the last two years have highlighted the damage that a
rogue systems administrator or stolen privileged credentials can cause. Today, fewer than half of all
business organizations have deployed the type of privileged identity management (PIM) solution that
could help improve the situation. This Ovum Decision Matrix (ODM) provides an in-depth view of the
leading PIM solution
Authentication is the beating heart of security. The most fundamental action in all of IT is to identify “who you are”—and authentication is the building block that answers that question. Now more than ever, IT teams must do everything they can to ensure that users are who they say they are, and that their credentials have not been stolen. IT is in state of crisis, with hundreds of millions of identities stolen annually. For system administrators, it’s crucial to know which users have the right to access a given resource, and whether unauthorized users have tried to get in.
