AFP Guide to Integrated Business Planning

Published By: Anaplan     Published Date: Mar 29, 2018

What has changed is creation of planning platforms that can handle the fluidity of data to erase silos and enterprise borders where once there were multiple geographies, departments, time zones, languages and currencies. All elements of business are managing the avalanche of information coming to them.

Increase Visibility to Boost Security

Published By: F5 Networks Singapore Pte Ltd     Published Date: Jan 24, 2019
The increase of SSL/TLS traffic indicates that organizations are more and more focused on safeguarding the integrity of the data that flows through their Internet-facing applications. However, the concurrent growth of malware hidden within that encrypted traffic is cause for concern. Without visibility into your SSL/TLS traffic, you’ll have some serious blind spots in your security, and these blind spots could lead to financial losses, data breaches, and damage to your corporate reputation. That’s why it’s essential to regain visibility into that encrypted traffic and allow your malware-scanning and prevention devices to protect your apps and your network. The most efficient way to get that visibility is by orchestrating your outbound SSL/TLS traffic. With a robust SSL/TLS orchestration solution, you’ll enjoy better visibility, increased performance, and more flexibility—so you can stop worrying about hidden malware and focus on developing and supporting new apps to drive your business
