Industry leaders from the banking and vendor landscape are working to streamline the
customer experience while closing the opportunities for fraud and exposure. Balancing
security and convenience will require an approach that combines consumer-facing
authentication (such as passwords, PINs and biometrics) with background security
measures (such as transaction and session-behavior analytics).

Object-based storage (referred to as OBS throughout this document) platforms continue to perpetuate cloud and enterprise IT infrastructure. As businesses move toward petabyte-scale data storage, OBS solutions are turning out to be the right choice for balancing scale, complexity, and costs. By way of their core design principles, OBS platforms deliver unprecedented scale at reduced complexity and reduced costs over the long term. Early OBS platforms suffered from "necessity crisis," were too
cumbersome to deploy and, in some cases, caused a platform lock-in because of their proprietary access mechanisms. In spite of their from-the-ground-up design, a departure from how traditional SAN and NAS arrays are deployed and, more importantly, a lack of standard interfaces made it difficult for
IT organizations to deploy OBS solutions in the infrastructure. Thanks to Amazon S3 and OpenStack Swift becoming de facto access interfaces, this situation has changed.
Organizations' users increasingly depend on their mobile devices, but phones and tablets bring new and unfamiliar challenges for IT departments. IT must be able to deploy and manage mobile devices and apps quickly to support the business while balancing the growing need to protect corporate data because of evolving laws, regulations, and cybercrime.

Load balancers are officially dead; refocus on application delivery. Read this report and you’ll learn about enterprises that are still focused on load balancing, improving application performance and security, increasing efficiency and more.
Cisco engaged Miercom to conduct a competitive analysis of its Catalyst 2960-X switch versus two comparable Hewlett-Packard switches from the 2920 and 5120 product families. Miercom executed comprehensive hands-on testing and evaluated the performance of some widely deployed features that are critical for reliable functioning of enterprise networks. The test methodology focused on specific areas in which Cisco believed there were key competitive differentiators between the products. Test results validated include throughput, latency, energy efficiency, stacking, LACP load balancing and Quality of Services (QoS) performance. Miercom found that the Cisco Catalyst 2960-X demonstrated superior performances against the competitive switches in the tests featured in this report.

Elastic Load Balancing automatically distributes incoming web tra?c across multiple EC2 instances. With Elastic Load Balancing, you can add and remove EC2 instances as your needs change without disrupting the overall ?ow of information. If an EC2 instance fails, Elastic Load Balancing automatically reroutes the tra?c to the remaining running EC2 instances. If a failed EC2 instance is restored, Elastic Load Balancing restores the tra?c to that instance.
