The more holistic view of risk a property underwriter can get, the better decisions they are likely to make. In order to build up a detailed picture of risk at an individual location, underwriters or agents at coverholders have, until now, had to request exposure analytics on single risks from their portfolio managers and brokers. Also, they had to gather supplementary risk data from a range of external resources, whether it is from Catastrophe Risk Evaluation and Standardizing Target Accumulations (CRESTA) zones to look-ups on Google Maps.
The insurance industry boasts some of the most sophisticated modeling capabilities in the world. And yet the average property underwriter does not have access to the kind of predictive tools that carriers use at a portfolio level to manage risk aggregation, streamline reinsurance buying and optimize capitalization.
U.S. Flood is a high-gradient, intricate peril incorporating various sources, and causing a variety of effects. It requires sophisticated models, data science, and analytics technology to properly understand and assess each risk.
PKI is becoming a critical underpinning to help organizations succeed as they roll out new digital business models. Establishing a trusted infrastructure through PKI will help businesses take smart risks, evolve quickly and manage relationships with customers, partners, vendors and employees more effectively.
Certificate management is a crucial part of a robust PKI implementation, ensuring visibility and adherence to policy throughout the certificate lifecycle: from identity vetting, to issuance, to renewal to revocation. As Gartner noted in its recent report, “PKI is Gearing Up for the Internet of Things”
Security risks and breaches have become part of the daily landscape as companies and organizations of every size and in every vertical and industry announce that they have been compromised. In 2016 reported security breaches were up 40%, and this year is on pace to surpass that steep rise. Over the past year alone, there have been high-profile breaches in the gaming, financial services, hospitality, food service, consumer packaged goods, and retail sectors. Many of those breaches occurred due to vulnerabilities in applications and on websites. For example, this past April, the IRS announced a breach attributable to a tool designed to fetch data for the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form.
Operational resilience is high on the regulatory agenda in the UK. A joint discussion paper in 2018 took a broader view of operational resilience to cover all risks to the provision of critical business services with a greater emphasis on recovery and response when incidents occur. Regulators now place the same importance on operational resilience as on financial resilience. This represents a fundamental shift that companies are at different stages of addressing. Based on discussions with clients and regulators here are ten conversations to help guide you through this new landscape.

Cross-border eCommerce sales are set to reach $627 billion by 2022, with the highest growth rate projected in regions outside of North America and Western Europe. Yet US merchants are not capitalizing on these global markets. Only 42% of surveyed US merchants said their eCommerce website accommodated global business. When looking for new growth potential, international eCommerce represents a huge opportunity for North American merchants. Understanding and encouraging overseas consumers is essential for retailers looking to drive online sales and expand internationally.
"Purchasers of enterprise storage have historically dealt with an upgrade cycle that was expensive, disruptive, inherently risky, and time-consuming and occurred roughly every three to five years. In 2015, Pure Storage challenged customer preconceptions about the enterprise storage upgrade cycle with the announcement of its Evergreen Storage. And Pure has continued to enhance Evergreen Storage over the years with new features that have increased its already extremely high customer experience performance.
This IDC white paper assesses the impact Evergreen Storage has had on the enterprise storage industry and discusses the technical, financial, and business implications of the program from a customer point of view."

The IT pendulum is swinging to distributed computing environments, network perimeters are dissolving, and
compute is being distributed across various parts of organizations’ infrastructure—including, at times, their extended
ecosystem. As a result, organizations need to ensure the appropriate levels of visibility and security at these remote
locations, without dramatically increasing staff or tools. They need to invest in solutions that can scale to provide
increased coverage and visibility, but that also ensure efficient use of resources. By implementing a common
distributed data services layer as part of a comprehensive security operations and analytics platform architecture
(SOAPA) and network operations architecture, organizations can reduce costs, mitigate risks, and improve operational

Network operations teams can no longer ignore the application layer. Application experience can make or
break a digital enterprise, and today most enterprises are digital. To deliver optimal performance, network
operations tools must be application-aware. However, application-awareness in the network and security tool
layer is expensive and difficult to scale. Enterprises can mitigate these challenges with a network visibility
architecture that includes application-aware network packet brokers (NPBs).
EMA recommends that today’s network operations teams modernize their approach with full application
visibility. EMA research has found that network teams are increasingly focused on directly addressing security
risk reduction, service quality, end-user experience, and application performance. All of these new network
operations benchmarks will require deeper application-level visibility. For instance, a network team focused
on service quality will want to take a top-down approach to perfo

Check out our infographic to see six common security pitfalls that put your users, their devices, and your data at risk. By avoiding these common security mistakes, you’ll be protecting your network against today’s threats and beyond.
"Malicious cryptomining has consistently been one of the top threats across all internet activity in 2018. Cryptominers tap into an organization’s computing power to create cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Monero — and generate profit for themselves. If you’re not protected, it can cost you in all kinds of ways. It can lead to degraded system performance and regulatory risks, and leaves an attacker with an open door to further exploit your network.
In this eBook you’ll learn about who these criminals are targeting and how you can protect your network from a significant threat.
"It’s no secret that the way people work has changed dramatically over the past few years. As highly distributed environments become the norm, security teams are scrambling to protect users, the growing number of device types they carry, and their data.
With more users, devices, and applications connecting to the network, the number of risks and vulnerabilities is also increasing — triggering a total transformation in the security landscape.

The way that we develop and deliver software has changed dramatically in the
past 5 years—but the metrics we use to measure quality remain largely the
same. Despite seismic shifts in business expectations, development methodologies,
system architectures, and team structures, most organizations still
rely on quality metrics that were designed for a much different era.
Every other aspect of application delivery has been scrutinized and optimized
as we transform our processes for DevOps. Why not put quality metrics under
the microscope as well?
Are metrics like number of automated tests, test case coverage, and pass/fail
