Prophix and IMA hosted a webcast, titled “Overcoming Barriers to Implement CPM Methods”, featuring subject matter expert Gary Cokins, the CEO, at Analytics-Based Performance Management. The adoption rate of business analytics and corporate performance management (CPM) methods has been slowed by various barriers. Gary Cokins outlines the causes of this lag, as well as lessons learned about how to overcome obstacles, and obtain buy-in to manage and improve performance. He describes techniques such as strategy maps, balanced scorecards with key performance indicators (KPIs), channel and customer profitability reporting, and driver-based budgeting that can prevent failure when implementing CPM methods.

Businesses today must reduce the risk of security breaches to protect the valuable data within their
organizations. At the same time, IT auditors are increasingly enforcing ever more stringent requirements
on the business. The bottom line is that privileged accounts and privileged access are being targeted by
hackers as a new attack surface and focused on by auditors who are insisting on greater controls around
The right privileged access management solution provides comprehensive protection for your missioncritical
servers with powerful, fine-grained controls over operating system-level access and privileged
user actions. Capable of enforcing access controls on powerful native Superuser accounts—like the
UNIX® and Linux® root and Microsoft® Windows® administrator—this system-level, host-based privileged
access management solution controls, monitors and audits privileged user activity, improving security and
simplifying audit and compliance.
For organizations with additional security requirements for high value servers hosting business-critical assets, CA Privileged Access Manager Server Control provides localized, fine-grained access control and protection over operating system-level access and application-level access. Agent-based, kernel-level protection is available for individual files, folders and specific commands based on policy and/or finedgrained controls on specific hosts.

What if you could transform your communications system to rival the rich functionality and flexibility of bigger competitors with dedicated IT staff?
This new white paper compares the costs and functionality of using a hosted unified communications (UC) system "in the cloud" versus investing in an on-site "premises-based" system. The findings might surprise you.
Download this new white paper now to:
•Understand the tradeoffs between owning vs. hosted UC systems
•Review a dollars-to-dollars comparison in a full total cost of ownership (TCO) study
•Learn the pitfalls to avoid when evaluating different UC systems
This Frost & Sullivan whitepaper provides an overview of the latest DDoS attack trends, and offers examples of how cloud service and hosting providers can use Arbor Networks solutions to protect their data centers from DDoS attacks and increase revenue by offering Arbor-based, managed DDoS protection services.
Entrust IdentityGuard Cloud Services PKI establishes and manages certificate-based security across an organization through a reliable, customizable and flexible hosted public key infrastructure (PKI).
Entrust’s cloud-based PKI service eliminates up-front capital investment and significantly reduces on-going operation cost associated with in-house PKI software, provides built-in maintenance capabilities and speeds deployment time.
Today, enterprises are extending their businesses by using more web-based and cloud-hosted applications, so a robust and agile web application firewall (WAF) isn't a luxury--it is a requirement. This whitepaper breaksdown some of the key factors you should consider when selecting a WAF to protect your business.
Unified Communications offers a host of benefits to SMBs and large enterprises alike. But every organization needs to determine whether a premises-based UC solution or a cloud-based hosted service is the best fit for its own situation. This decision guide takes you through a list of important considerations to help you do just that.
In today's business environment, organizations of all sizes are struggling to maintain the advanced IT capabilities they need to be competitive while reining in cost and complexity. Shifting to off-premise hosted models, such as software-as-a-service (SaaS) and business process outsourcing, is a common activity undertaken to manage costs.
One of the main challenges businesses face in adopting cloud and SaaS delivery models is the task of synchronizing data and integrating the multitude of systems already in datacenters with new cloud-based applications, not to mention within the cloud itself. Traditionally, this required organizations to leverage existing tools as well as custom development.
This white paper looks at how two enterprises encountered problems with cloud integration and adopted IBM WebSphere Cast Iron to solve their immediate problems and extend use more broadly across their organizations.

According to experts at TrendLabs, spam now makes up close to 95% of all email and continues to grow. In the first three months of 2008 spam rates almost doubled over rates observed at the end of 2007 and TrendLabs predicts that average daily spam volumes will increase by 30 to 50 billion messages per day within the year.1 As spam continues to grow at dramatic rates, traditional on-premise email security products are failing to keep up. This limitation is one of the primary reasons that IDC predicts demand for hosted security solutions -also known as SaaS (Software as a Service) solutions-will grow by more than 30% annually through 2012.2 For context, the growth rate for hosted email security is projected to be more than eight times that of the traditional software email security market, and more than 60% faster than appliance-based email security solutions.

Fileless attacks surged in 2017, largely due to their ability to bypass traditional antivirus solutions. Last year was host to several fileless malware victories. OceanLotus Group infiltrated Asian corporations during Operation Cobalt Kitty, and conducted nearly six months of fileless operations before detection. Ransomware hall-of-famers Petya and WannaCry both implemented fileless techniques in their kill chains. Every major player in information security agrees that fileless attacks are difficult to stop, and the threats are growing worse. Abandoning files is a logical and tactical response to traditional AV solutions which have overcommitted to file-intensive and signature-based blacklists. What can security solutions offer when there are no infected files to detect? How will a blacklist stop an aggressor that only uses legitimate system resources? The security landscape is changing and the divide between traditional AV products and next-generation security solutions is growing wider by the day. Cylance® has built a reputation on security driven by artificial intelligence and provides a frontline defense against fileless malware. This document details how Cylance protects organizations.

"Virtualization has changed the data center dynamic from static to fluid. While workloads used to be confined to the hardware on which they were installed, workloads today flow from host to host based on administrator-defined rules, as well as in reaction to changes in the host environment. The fluidic nature of the new data center has brought challenges to resource allocation; find out how your organization can stay ahead of the curve.
