  • Surfing the Flash Flood of Data Growth
    Source: Violin Memory
    White Paper: Data volumes are growing (no surprise there). The trouble is that the complexity of data is also growing - along with the need to deal with this complexity in near-real time. Magnetic disk has reached the end of its capabilities to deal with the new world of data - only flash-based systems have the power to do what the business needs. However, there are many things that need to be considered when choosing the right flash array...
  • Storage Capacity 101 to Post-Grad in a Flash
    Source: Violin Memory
    White Paper: Everyone knows what a terabyte of data is, don't they? Surprisingly, it has got very difficult to come up with anything solid on what a terabyte really is when it comes to discussing storage - is it the raw capacity stated on the drive; is it the available capacity after formating; is it the effective capacity only seen when data is written to it? This is further confused when there are two different terabytes - the one that older storage admins are used to (1024 to the power 4 -now called a tebibyte) and the one that is now taught (1000 to the power 4). This gives an almost 10% difference in stated storage capacity before we start...
  • Storing Up Issues in the Magnetic World
    Source: Violin Memory
    White Paper: The up-front cost of storage should be a minor concern. What really matters is the fitness for purpose: will the chosen solution provide the support for storage workloads that the business requires? As magnetic storage hits the unfortunate wall of physics with its performance, the move to flash-based storage accelerates.
  • Flash Storage Addresses Emerging Storage Dynamics and Sparks a Shift to Primary Storage Alternatives
    Source: Violin Memory
    White Paper: Increasingly, IT organizations search for cost-effective, easy-to-manage storage solutions that can improve business outcomes and deliver increased efficiencies and higher performance. Flash storage has become an economical alternative to traditional HDD storage architectures that not only outperforms traditional architectures in speed and efficiency, but can also provide a better overall TCO that drives down an organization's capex and opex.

  • Gartner Research: How To Live With Unmanaged Mobile Devices
    Source: Apperian
    White Paper: Gartner clients who have tried MDM and have received poor feedback from their workforce, which perceives it as too invasive on their mobile devices, have been inquiring about alternative methods to securely provide enterprise access from mobile devices. In the research note "How to Live With Unmanaged Mobile Devices" you will learn how to:
    -Deliver and protect data regardless of who manages the device
    -Collaborate with external contractors and partners who have devices the enterprise cannot manage with MDM
    -Deploy apps in a way that provides additional security and management controls without a device profile

    Gartner predicts that by 2018, more than half of all bring your own device (BYOD) users that currently have an MDM agent will be managed by an agent-less solution. Download this report to see why.

  • Early Threat Detection Using Telemetry Data
    Source: Paladion Networks
    White Paper: With the cyber attack landscape changing daily, network infrastructure needs to respond at a similar rate. True situational awareness in information security depends on a security approach that provides continuous monitoring using advanced techniques that combat the latest developments in cyber attacks. Paladion's RisqVu IST is the answer to this problem, providing users with an agent less telemetry based information security solution that addresses the constant advancements in cyber attacks. RisqVu IST also addresses the need for situational awareness, allowing for open communication and focus on the security posture of an organization.
  • Use Cases for Security Analytics
    Source: Paladion Networks
    White Paper: Security analytics can be a valuable tool for detecting advanced attacks. However, it must be applied correctly. Too often, the goal of security analytics is reduced to the construction of a big data platform; running data science algorithms, machine learning, or statistical packages. Instead, the starting point should be to identify the risks that cannot be monitored through conventional security products and then to define use cases in security analytics to monitor those risks. In this paper, we discuss the need for security analytics and how to apply it in a meaningful way to achieve results. We then discuss the technology components required to put security analytics in action.
  • Upgrade your SOC with Security Analytics and Orchestration
    Source: Paladion Networks
    White Paper: Security teams are always on the lookout to enhance the capabilities of their current SOC to counter targeted attacks. Unlike common cyber attacks, targeted attacks are a lot more different. Attackers explore sophisticated methods and spend a greater amount of time carrying out large impact breaches. So, the real question for an organization is: "Does your SOC detect and respond to targeted attacks?"
