Security professionals, business decision makers, boards of directors, regulators and others are increasingly concerned about cybersecurity issues and the potential for major business disruptions like data breaches, various types of security incursions, and other problems.
Conventional security solutions are useful and provide some level of protection. The variety of antivirus solutions, firewalls, secure web gateways, security incident and event management (SIEM) solutions, anti-ransomware solutions, cloud security tools and other systems provide protection against many threats. However, Osterman Research surveys, as well as those of many other analyst firms, find that the current level of protection is simply not adequate in many cases due to improving evasion tactics, end users who work outside of perimeter defenses (e.g., from airports, coffee shops or at home), infected USBs, fileless attacks, etc.
To address these deficiencies, a rapidly growing number of organizations are deploying endpoint detection and response (EDR) solutions as a supplement to their existing security defenses. An EDR solution can demonstrate that threats will be monitored closely, highly detailed information about endpoint events will be retained for an appropriate length of time, and remediation of security threats will occur as quickly as possible.View whitepaper
The shelter-in-place mandates put in place earlier in 2020 sent most employees home, and for the next few months they strived to stay connected and productive, while IT teams scrambled to provide infrastructures to support them. Now many organizations have realized there are benefits to having a distributed workforce, and thus are focused on tackling some of the network-related challenges that have compromised employee experience.
Remote user access is one top-of-mind concern. When employees are remote, connecting to on-premises apps can be ...
How IT adapts in times of change:
When global events caused companies to make a rapid pivot to remote work, IT had no choice but to act fast. No matter where they were on the path to digital transformation, IT organizations across industries were responsible for onboarding a large number of employees onto new devices, managing a bigger population of distributed users, and keeping them all connected and secure.
For teams still using traditional PC lifecycle management methods on their Windows devices, these new demands quickly became a mas ...
Organizations will continue to benefit from their data center investments, yet many of these organizations are also looking to benefit from the unique advantages offered by public cloud that cannot be cost-effectively delivered with today’s static data center environments.
- 4 Reasons to Extend Your Data Center to the Cloud:
1. Footprint expansion - Obtain capacity for new projects and expand into new geographies without building a new data center or investing in over-provisioning.
2. On-demand capacity - Handle unplanned temporary cap ...
Cloud infrastructure is becoming the primary deployment environment for a majority of workloads.
As organizations extend on-premises data center environments to the public cloud, there are several factors that need to be considered to effectively integrate on-premises data centers with the public cloud in order to realize cloud benefits.
The goal of this paper is to help our customers understand these factors and identify the right cloud platform while identifying potential challenges. ...
1. Footprint Expansion:
Obtain capacity for new projects and expand into new geographies without building a new data center or investing in over-provisioning.
2. On-demand Capacity:
Handle unplanned temporary capacity needs and anticipated seasonal spikes in demand without the capital expense of maintaining idle capacity.
3. Test, Development, and IT Lab Environments:
Perform test/dev and lab/training activities in a flexible pay-by-the-hour environment, with the ability to move between cloud, on-premises, and other regions as needed.
