LinuxONE: A Secure, Scalable Data-Serving Infrastructure Accelerates Digital Transformation

Thumb original systems hardware ibm linuxone lu analyst paper or report lul12353usen 20171118

A technology-enabled business strategy such as digital transformation (DX) makes it possible for firms to expand their competitive differentiation in the market. Although disruptive, DX requires firms to effectively and efficiently combine (technology) platforms, (business) processes, (data) governance, and (people) talent to gather deep and timely insights from data and actuate these insights to optimize business operations, develop new and innovative products and services, and transform customer engagement.

Gaining deep, timely, and actionable insights from large and diverse data sets requires firms to take innovative approaches to technology platforms. A recommended approach is to deploy current- and next-gen applications (apps) on a modern infrastructure platform. Current-gen apps are mostly procured off the shelf, require traditional approaches to infrastructure, and support established revenue-generating business operations. Next-gen apps are developed specifically for future-readiness DX initiatives, are designed to be cloud native, use newer development methodologies, and are often deployed on newer computing technologies such as containers. This means that modern infrastructure solutions capable of hosting current- and next-gen apps must support extreme performance and scalability; be optimized for data consolidation and serving; support pervasive security; be agile and dependable; support both traditional and newer computing, development, and deployment models; and natively support modern open source frameworks.

Replacing Legacy AV - Benefits of the BlackBerry Cylance Approach

Legacy antivirus solutions are built upon several outmoded technologies ranging from byte-matching to post execution behavioral analysis. Threat actors have adapted to these well-known cybersecurity measures and responded with increasingly sophisticated attacks. For example, using byte-matching to identify malware has been foiled by attackers implementing polymorphic, single-use, and fileless attacks. Post-execution behavioral analysis is too risky of an approach when modern ransomware may encrypt vital data before malicious activity is detecte ...

AI-Driven Threat and Incident Prevention, Detection, and Response

Traditional cybersecurity approaches suffer from two glaring weaknesses. First, they rely on the digital signatures of known malware in order to identify threats. This approach leaves systems vulnerable to new and non-catalogued malware. Second, they are reactive in nature, ascribing to the “it’s not a matter of if, but when” mentality and often responding to the damage caused by zero-day threats only after they execute. Guarding against known threats is important but in the modern threat, landscape organizations must also address the over 350, ...

Artificial Intelligence: The Platform of Choice

Artificial intelligence (AI) leads the charge in the current wave of digital transformation underway at many global companies. Organizations large and small are actively expanding their AI footprints as executives try to comprehend more fully what AI is and how they can use it to capitalize on business opportunities by gaining insight to the data they collect that enables them to engage with customers and hone a competitive edge. But, while AI may indeed be the frontier of enterprise technology, there remain many misconceptions about it. ...

Augmenting Endpoint Security with AI-Driven Protection

If an organization’s current cybersecurity solution cannot predict and prevent zero-day attacks, it is living on borrowed time. Polymorphism, fileless attacks, and malware-as-a-service make it increasingly easy to circumvent traditional AV solutions. With the average cost of a data breach reaching $3.86 million, a single compromise can prove catastrophic.

Relying on IT staff, legacy AV, and frequently updated software to stop cyber threats is a costly proposition. Cybersecurity personnel must be hired, trained, and retained in a business cl ...
