The Total Economic Impact™ Of Cisco TrustSec Simplified Security Engineering And Reduced Operations

Published By: Cisco     Published Date: Jan 02, 2018
Cisco commissioned Forrester Consulting to conduct a Total Economic Impact™ (TEI) study and examine the potential return on investment (ROI) enterprises may realize by deploying Cisco TrustSec software-defined segmentation. The purpose of this study is to provide readers with a framework to evaluate the potential financial impact of Cisco on their organizations. To better understand the benefits, costs, and risks associated with TrustSec, Forrester interviewed four customers that had deployed TrustSec. The TrustSec software-defined segmentation solution simplifies the provisioning and management of highly secure access to network services and applications. Unlike access control mechanisms that work on network topology, TrustSec policies use logical grouping. Highly secure access is consistently maintained even as resources are moved in mobile and virtualized networks. A more detailed description of TrustSec is available on the Cisco TrustSec Overview page in this document.

The State of Marketing Attribution 2017

Published By: AdRoll     Published Date: Dec 20, 2017
There is a great misconception that the purpose of attribution modelling is to arrive at a singular, concrete truth; however, the reality is much more nuanced. Attribution modeling is actually an ongoing process of improving how we measure marketing’s impact in order to improve our decision making over time. There are a number of attribution principles that still confuse marketers: Why is attribution a process and not an end state? Why is making small steps forward really better than doing nothing? Why does the perfect attribution model not exist? What makes attribution an ROI investment and not a cost center? With the many attribution myths, challenges, and philosophies in mind, AdRoll and Econsultancy have partnered for a second year in a row to produce The State of Marketing Attribution 2017. This time around we’ve broaden our focus beyond Europe to include content that also covers North America and Asia-Pacific.

Managed DNS Evaluation Guide

Published By: Oracle Dyn     Published Date: Dec 06, 2017
Every user’s first interaction with your website begins with a series of DNS queries. The Domain Name System (DNS) is a distributed internet database that maps human-readable names to IP addresses, ensuring users reach the correct website when entering a URL. DNS mappings are maintained in special-purpose servers called DNS nameservers. When a user enters your company’s URL, a DNS query is routed to a DNS nameserver containing the address mappings for your company’s internet domain.

Deep Packet Inspection for Wireless Access Points: Analyze. Control. Secure.

Published By: Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity     Published Date: Nov 28, 2017
According to many market research analysts, the global wireless access point (WAP) market is anticipated to continue its upward trajectory and to grow at an impressive compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of approximately 8% through 2020. Many enterprises are utilizing cloudcomputing technology for cost-cutting purposes, eliminating investments required for storage hardware and other physical infrastructures. With significant growth expected in Internet usage, particularly bandwidth consuming video traffic, WAP vendors need to enable their customers to monitor and improve device performance, improve end user experience, and enhance security. These customers include general enterprises that offer Internet access to patrons like airports, hotels, retail / shopping centers and so on. These external Internet access providers can differentiate themselves by offering optimum service through advanced network analytics, traffic shaping, application control, security capabilities and more.

Next-Generation Firewalls: The Cornerstone of Next-Generation Security

Published By: Palo Alto Networks     Published Date: Nov 15, 2017
In today’s complex network environments, applications, infrastructure and threats are dynamic. As such, relying upon various, single-purpose security devices that don’t integrate with each other results in dangerous security gaps. These devices are poorly coordinated and unable to provide comprehensive security and threat prevention. To protect against today’s advanced attacks requires a natively integrated, next-generation approach to security – an approach that can keep up with the latest application and infrastructure trends and recognize and stop today’s most advanced threats.

Contrail Networking: Evolve your cloud with Containers

Published By: Juniper Networks     Published Date: Oct 25, 2017
The primary purpose of containerized applications is to improve the effectiveness of software teams, making it easier for people to work together while lowering the communications overhead. In large enterprises, applications such as ERP or CRM software suites often begin as simple projects, but as time passes, they quickly become clunky and inefficient, with a monolithic code base that slows progress for development teams.

Wasabi Ushers in Cloud Storage 2.0, a New Era of Possibilities Purpose Built for the Next Generation

Published By: Wasabi     Published Date: Oct 24, 2017
An explosion of data storage needs, both in terms of volume and accessibility, are unmet by first-generation storage solutions. The massive datasets being generated are un-storable due to costs and unable to be fully leveraged because of speed limitations. The needs of individual businesses, and our greater economy, demand the commoditization of cloud storage. Cloud Storage 2.0 represents a new generation of solutions that promise to turn Cloud Storage into a utility along the lines of bandwidth and electricity. Leading this evolution with high-speed, low cost, reliable cloud storage is Wasabi. In this white paper we look at the genesis and possibilities of Cloud Storage 2.0, and Wasabi’s place at its forefront. Free trial with no credit card required offer available as well.

The IT Leader’s Guide to Eliminating Oracle Database Data Loss

Published By: Oracle     Published Date: Oct 20, 2017
Your enterprise runs its critical applications on Oracle Databases, and as an enterprise IT leader, maintaining the performance and availability of your databases is among your top priorities. Any degradation in performance or loss of data could result in serious business disruption and loss of revenue, so protecting this vital asset is a must. There are many causes of data loss— administration errors, system or media failures, cyberattacks, and more—but we often overlook design flaws in the very systems meant to protect data: general-purpose backup systems. Many existing data protection solutions fail to meet the demands of critical databases because they treat them as generic files to copy as opposed to specialized resources. Taking a generic approach to database backup and recovery not only exposes you to the risk of data loss, it also negatively impacts performance and makes it difficult to recover within acceptable timeframes.

TDWI Best Practices: Data Lakes, Purposes, Practices, Patterns and Platforms (customized reports)

Published By: SAS     Published Date: Oct 18, 2017
When designed well, a data lake is an effective data-driven design pattern for capturing a wide range of data types, both old and new, at large scale. By definition, a data lake is optimized for the quick ingestion of raw, detailed source data plus on-the-fly processing of such data for exploration, analytics and operations. Even so, traditional, latent data practices are possible, too. Organizations are adopting the data lake design pattern (whether on Hadoop or a relational database) because lakes provision the kind of raw data that users need for data exploration and discovery-oriented forms of advanced analytics. A data lake can also be a consolidation point for both new and traditional data, thereby enabling analytics correlations across all data. To help users prepare, this TDWI Best Practices Report defines data lake types, then discusses their emerging best practices, enabling technologies and real-world applications. The report’s survey quantifies user trends and readiness f
