A huge array of BI, analytics, data prep and machine learning platforms exist in the market, and each of those may have a variety of connectors to different databases, file systems and applications, both on-premises and in the cloud. But in today’s world of myriad data sources, simple connectivity is just table stakes.
What’s essential is a data access strategy that accounts for the variety of data sources out there, including relational and NoSQL databases, file formats across storage systems — even enterprise SaaS applications — and can make them all consumable by tools and applications built for tabular data. In today’s data-driven business environment, fitting omni-structured data and disparate applications into a consistent data API makes comprehensive integration, and insights, achievable.

Traditional email-security defenses aren’t enough anymore. In today’s rapidly evolving threat environment, to stop email-borne threats, you must effectively defend against phishing and other potentially-devastating social-engineering attacks. These sophisticated threats are often able to bypass defenses using back-door techniques, including email spoofing, spear phishing and personal email fraud to penetrate network defenses and wreak havoc.
Here’s a total email-protection strategy that
can help radically reduce an organization’s
susceptibility to attacks.
This webinar demonstrates how connected data changes everything. In an autonomous world you’ll take the lead, becoming central to your company’s success. Machine learning will take care of the day-to-day maintenance leaving you to focus on design, analytics and strategy. And crucially, you’ll find yourself empowering and inspiring your colleagues to gain their own insights from real- time data.

Security leaders have been in front of boards and executive committees long enough to know that security metrics that simply portray statistics from monitoring tools, or count the number of malware attacks, add relatively little value to strategy and budget decisions. Protecting sensitive customer and company data shouldn’t be just a compliance obligation, it should be a business imperative. This is exactly why the right technology partners will help push security, risk, and compliance objectives forward.
In March 2019, Dell commissioned Forrester Consulting to evaluate the evolving security trends and technology needed to protect and enable employees. Our study found that empowering employees while adhering to security protocols improves employee productivity. Forrester conducted an online survey of 887 senior business and IT decision makers to explore this topic.

As companies like yours scale their cloud environment, the question has
evolved from “what do I need to protect” to “how do I control and monitor
what I am responsible for?” Many companies, especially those who are born on
the cloud, or who are more cloud-mature understand the Shared Responsibility
Model. Now, they are focusing on building a strategy that gives them greater
control and visibility of their cloud environment.
Gartner reported that “In 2018, the 60% of enterprises that implement
appropriate cloud visibility and control tools will experience one-third fewer
security failures.” Having the right monitoring strategy is beneficial for multiple
reasons, and this eBook will detail how OneLogin implemented it in their AWS
environment, and why you should consider implementing it in yours.
