"Security analysts have a tougher job than ever. New vulnerabilities and security attacks used to be a monthly occurrence, but now they make the headlines almost every day. It’s become much more difficult to effectively monitor and protect all the data passing through your systems. Automated attacks from bad bots that mimic human behavior have raised the stakes, allowing criminals to have machines do the work for them.
Not only that, these bots leave an overwhelming number of alert bells, false positives, and inherent stress in their wake for security practitioners to sift through. Today, you really need a significant edge when combating automated threats launched from all parts of the world.
Where to start? With spending less time investigating all that noise in your logs."

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.
"The average company uses more than 50 security vendors: firewalls, web proxies, SIEM, appliances, intelligence - and the list goes on. Do you have more security tools than you can handle? There’s an easier way to make the most of your existing investments.
We'll share ways you can reduce security alerts and extend your security off network, anywhere users go, with Cisco Umbrella. Built with a bidirectional API, Cisco Umbrella easily integrates with the other systems in your stack, so you can extend protection from on-premises security appliances to devices and sites beyond your perimeter — and amplify investments you’ve already made.

A new NPR/Marist poll reveals that one in five jobs in the U.S. is held by a worker under contract. In fact, independent contractors could make up half of the entire workforce in the U.S. within the next decade.
More and more organizations have begun to see contractors and suppliers as valuable business partners intrinsic to driving service and product innovation. For many companies, especially those operating in highly regulated industries, managing compliance in-house for all of these suppliers can be burdensome.
But the cost of non-compliance — in the form of penalties, fines, productivity losses, settlement costs, and inefficiencies — is ruinous.
This white paper will discuss:
• The hidden costs of ignoring contractor management
• Best practices towards holistic compliance and governance
• The cost of different contractor management systems
• How to get the highest ROI in your supply chain

Omnichannel is one of those words everyone
uses, but few use correctly. It’s not another word for
multichannel. It’s a different state of existence.
In our experience, multichannel is the ability to interact
with customers across many different channels, but
not necessarily in a cohesive fashion. As new channels
become available, they are “bolted on” to existing
customer experience infrastructure such as CRM
or customer support systems. Too frequently, the
management of these channels becomes siloed (web
versus in-store sales, for example). The effect of this from
the customer experience standpoint can be disjointed
and jarring. For example, the resolution of an issue
following a customer conversation with an associate
in the contact center may not be reflected when the
customer goes online or into a store.
Yet the ability to offer multichannel service experience is
table stakes for today’s business. If you’re not available in
the channels where customers want you to be, you cease
An alarming 2019 study suggested that workplaces in the region have exhausted staff morale with negative impacts on productivity. In this report, top technology leaders in Australia address some of the "employee experience" challenges they the face and how they aim to tailor systems around ways of working to drive better engagement and productivity. The EIU's own survey results show that while leadership and management still set the tone for workers in the region, they value flexible-working policies and technology available to employees more than global peers.
An excellent CMS solution provides your business with the flexibility to grow into a broad experience delivery platform. It should enable your business to scale and add new capabilities as it grows, and easily integrate with other marketing technologies.
Why should the target audience care?
Customer expectations have increased. They now expect their in-store experiences to be continuous and consistent extensions of the online journey. And the online journey provides fast, dynamic, and interactive experiences. If your business is not well informed on what is needed from a content management solution, it may come up short on customer experience. A successful and growing business will choose a solution that helps them future-proof for emerging channels and effectively manage mature ones.
Navigate your business through the noise. Apply these questions and insights to your selection process and avoid the pitfalls of costly and rigid content management systems.
Microsoft Exchange Server has been a crucial technological breakthrough in advanced corporate communication systems. Companies who utilize an enterprise-class email server like Exchange believe that email is mission critical, and value the productivity it enables. But an in-house migration to Exchange 2007 from an earlier version of Exchange or another email program will not be an easy task. Complexity, time and cost issues loom large over the IT department and are causing IT directors to search for an alternative solution.
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.
Today, ERP is a cornerstone of many organisations’ tech infrastructure. Yet many of the solutions in play are legacy products, decades old and designed for an entirely different business landscape.
With industry leaders expressing concern that out-of-date ERP solutions have now become an impediment to competitive business, IDC set out to uncover what exactly modern companies need from their ERP systems, and why SAP S/4Hana seems so well placed to deliver.
All of these elements of growing connectivity have the potential to significantly increase productivity, streamline operations and enhance service levels to citizens and stakeholders. But these benefits are only one side of the story. The added complexity of the new eGovernment environment also creates many new challenges, as government agencies search for effective ways to secure and control access to the rapidly growing number and variety of gateways to their ecosystems.
Businesses who have lived through the evolution of the digital age are well aware that we’ve
experienced a generational shift in technology. The rise of software as a service (SaaS),
cloud, mobile, big data, the Internet of Things (IoT), social media, and other technologies
have disrupted industries and changed customers’ expectations. In our always-on, buy
anything anywhere world, customers want their shopping experiences to be personalized,
dynamic, and convenient.
As a result, many businesses are trying to reinvent themselves. Success in a fast-paced
economy depends on continually adapting and innovating. Companies have to move quickly
to keep up; there’s no time for disjointed technologies and old systems that don’t serve the
customer-obsessed mentality needed to thrive in the digital age.
New data sources are fueling innovation while stretching the limitations of traditional data management strategies and structures. Data warehouses are giving way to purpose built platforms more capable of meeting the real-time needs of a more demanding end user and the opportunities presented by Big Data. Significant strategy shifts are under way to transform traditional data ecosystems by creating a unified view of the data terrain necessary to support Big Data and real-time needs of innovative enterprises companies.
