Web Application Threats Are Evolving. Are Your Security Efforts Keeping Pace? Today, Web application security threats are not only becoming more abundant than ever, but also more difficult to detect, and more complex to solve. Many organizations are responding to these unique vulnerabilities with traditional network security approaches. However, sophisticated Web applications threats require a more sophisticated security strategy. What’s worked in the past won’t necessarily work today; and what’s more, Web application security requires a comprehensive solution, not simply a series of a la carte provisions. For detailed steps toward improving your Web application security strategy, download the VeriSign® Enterprise Security Services white paper, Best Practices That Improve Web Application Security.
Are you trying to secure cloud applications, while reducing user friction? With the right technology, IT/Security professionals can empower employees to work securely and efficiently anywhere, anytime.

SSL certificates have moved beyond the ‘Buy’ page. They are embedded in your business. For example,
they protect remote communications via webmail, chat and IM. Browser-to-server communications
for cloud-based services require SSL certificates to protect confidential information. In addition, SSL
certificates are used to secure server-to-server communications for applications and data exchange.
In fact, SSL Certificates are a business-critical part of your IT infrastructure. However, managing
individual certificates in a large organization is complicated by multiple locations, many servers,
different business units, and rapidly growing Web-based services.

Customer service and contact centers are on the front lines representing organizations. Their successful handling of service issues helps deliver on the promise of a great customer experience. To continue meeting the demands of customers — while fulfilling the organizational goal of delivering a differentiated
service experience — the modern customer service organization requires a seamlessly integrated front-office to back-office enterprise applications architecture and set of processes. As products and services become more technical in nature — think IoT devices — this interconnectedness is essential. Systems and customer support staff must be informed and enabled through technology to provide a contextualized experience that meets the customer's needs. Consistency across channels, proactive service, knowledge of a customer's past service requirements, technical skills, and rapid assessment and response will be essential requirements for modern customer service, which in turn creates
Effective security for cloud-hosted web applications requires full visibility into the environment in which the apps live and the potential exposure to vulnerabilities — and to do so consistently, while proactively monitoring for attacks without causing delays in application development and delivery.
Cloud adoption means that a focus on perimeter security is not sufficient and may even be obstructive, because it can impact application performance and availability.

A major telecoms client was struggling with time to market. Keen to launch a new youth brand, it had a number of innovative value-added digital services it wanted to offer; but it was taking a long time to implement them. Launching a new brand meant a 12-15 month cycle, which was unacceptable.
The reason was that, whenever anyone wanted to launch a new product or feature, they had to work on both the back-end and the front-end and then integrate it with the front end applications to make it work. This was so time-consuming and difficult that we were appointed to introduce a micro services layer in between, which would shorten development timescales.

As the volume of unstructured data created and used continues to increase rapidly, organizations are faced with challenges around data storage. In response, many new technologies — specifically objectbased storage, software-defined storage, all-flash arrays, and cloud-based storage services — are experiencing rapid adoption. Yet object-based storage has been limited by the need to rewrite existing file-based applications — a prospect that is costly and requires more manpower than is practical for many organizations.
Cloudian offers both an object storage platform and more recently an enterprise file services product. When deployed together, Cloudian's products are designed to consolidate file and object data into a single repository and can enable organizations to manage environments that span the cloud as well as on-premises.

The focus of SDN is on transforming the network to support applications and meet the expectations of users and businesses that rely on them. Scaling modern networks is challenging due to the explosive growth of compute, network, and application resources-combined with increased mobility of apps migrating to the cloud and users across multiple devices. As an approach to operationalizing the network, SDN enables organizations to achieve greater economies of operational scale through the use of APIs to automate and orchestrate the network, as well as the application services that support applications. Read this whitepaper to learn how applications are driving new requirements for both businesses and networks that require disruptive, radical change.
Organizations in every industry rely on applications to drive customer engagement, employee productivity and revenue. Deployed between users and the applications are a wide variety of “application services” designed to enhance security, improve performance and ensure reliability. F5 set out to evaluate the state of these services by asking IT professionals about their current and planned use of application services. Read the report to learn which strategic initiatives are driving application deployments including the most important trend for the next 2-5 years.
Enterprises are moving to a software-defined, private cloud data center model for agility, operational efficiency, and a self-service approach to deploying applications and associated services.

Digital transformation on the 3rd Platform continues to present unprecedented opportunities and challenges for enterprise networks and the IT professionals who operate them. Indeed, the requirements associated with cloud computing have already reverberated through datacenter networking, with software-defined networking (SDN) arising as an architectural approach that provided the network with the agility and responsiveness that it lacked previously but has come to require. Now, the focus is turning to how the WAN must change to accommodate the requirements of cloud applications and services. Fortunately, technologies such as hybrid WAN and software-defined WAN (SD-WAN) are coming to the rescue, giving enterprise IT the means to allow the WAN to meet these challenges directly.
Network readiness is an important factor in any new IT project at companies both large and small. New applications seem to require more bandwidth than the applications that they replace. These applications can also bring in new users, sometimes by the thousands. In some cases, the network services and/or capacity are not ready for these changes, and the IT rollout suffers.
This guide covers the following topics: bandwidth, wireless, firewalls, content filtering, proxy servers, and others.
