Its the start of a new year and amidst the countless predictions flooding the internet, one things for certain 2019 is shaping up to be the year of cloud adoption. Analysts are expecting that enterprise adoption of cloud will ramp up significantly, but with this migration and the continued adoption of mobile and IoT technologies, the attack surface is changing dramatically and this has major implications for security.
Fundamentally, security boundaries extend from on premises infrastructure to cloud service provider environments where perimeters no longer exist. Organizations cannot defend themselves with the same strategies and tactics that applied when it did. In this brave new world of cloud, IoT and mobile technology, organizations must be agile and shift, extend, and evolve their perimeter-based defense practices to those that are more robust. Further, a comprehensive defense in depth approach enables defense of high value assets amidst a more unpredictable cyber security landsca
IDC's research shows that, worldwide, over 70% of enterprise cloud users currently rely on multiple clouds (public and/or private) to support a wide range of applications and workloads. Efficient management of these resources depends on IT operations and DevOps teams having access to consistent, accurate infrastructure performance monitoring data and reporting that span the full set of on-premise cloud infrastructure and public cloud IaaS services. CA Technologies recently announced new capabilities for CA Unified Infrastructure Management (CA UIM) that allow the product to more fully address the monitoring needs of complex multicloud infrastructure as part of delivering on CA's vision to fully enable the agile DevOps in the application economy.
We all know that hybrid cloud adoption is exploding, with 80% of enterprises having at least some infrastructure in the cloud. This growth includes increased use of the internet to deliver applications, sites and services to employees, partners and customers. These companies need an internet performance management (IPM) strategy to ensure those services reach users effectively, starting with DNS.
Join Trip Kucera and Dyn VP, Gary Sloper, as they discuss the impact of cloud and internet infrastructure across the cloud adoption lifecycle. Key focus points include:
• Optimizing round trip times and latency, from time to first byte, to internet routing
• Understanding and comparing cloud service providers
• Protecting your service from route hijacks, DDoS attacks and mitigating vulnerabilities.
Watch this short Video Webinar and learn how focusing on the DNS layer can help you plan, migrate and optimize your way to cloud success!
For a network that better supports your cloud and brings the most value possible to your business, its design has to be considered in the early stages of cloud planning. Read the white paper "Networking for cloud computing" to discover specific networking considerations for public, private and hybrid clouds.
This paper explores the implications of cloud, big data and analytics, mobile, social business and the evolving IT security landscape on data center and enterprise networks and the changes that organizations will need to make in order to capitalize on these technology force.
Users expect quick, consistent access to their business-critical data and applications around the clock. That’s why outages, whether they are planned or unplanned, can negatively affect revenue, consumer trust and your reputation.
For more and more organizations, the new reality for development, deployment and delivery of applications and services is hybrid cloud. Few, if any, organizations are going to move all their strategic workloads to the cloud, but virtually every enterprise is embracing cloud for a wide variety of requirements.
In fact, hybrid cloud is the new norm for IT. IDC says more than 80% of enterprise IT organizations will commit to hybrid cloud by 20171, and 70% of IT decision-makers say they will always have a mix of traditional IT and cloud architectures.2 With important applications and workloads architected across both on-premises and hybrid, public and private cloud environments, business and IT stakeholders must be able to access data with equal efficiency, reliability and speed—regardless of physical location, infrastructure type or time frame.
For data-driven businesses, cloud can be a boon. Data can be found, processed and managed on the cloud without an investment in local hardware infrastructure, but what does that mean to information trust and governance? When data comes from cloud-based sources, IT needs a plan for data integration and security.
Download this insightful white paper and learn the four key priorities you must consider when developing your IT strategy to promote good hybrid information governance. Learn the blend of process, organizational and technical enablers that will allow you to move to a hybrid environment with speed and confidence.
Today’s workloads are dynamic and power-hungry. Cloud requirements for
mission-critical workloads often change overnight – causing IT priorities to
shift, deadlines to tighten, and budgets to shrink.
Seconds matter, especially when it comes to the bottom line. And bottom
lines take brutal hits when companies haven’t properly established a
powerful and flexible infrastructure.

"Since a decade the market has seen an outburst of data. With Managing and Securing Data is Crucial. With 3.8 Billion mobile users and 24 Zetta bytes of data created, and 100% attacks that target username and password credentials, managing and securing data has become a crucial and the most critical aspect for almost every Business.
Oracle’s SPARC M7 processor, with Oracle’s Software in Silicon technology, is the industry’s most advanced multi thread, multi-core processor with unique capabilities for information security. It sets the foundation for mission-critical cloud based server infrastructure with unprecedented levels of security, efficiency, and performance.
"It is very well understood that Business Enterprises today need to become more agile, meet new and increasing workload and security requirements, while reducing overall IT cost and risk. To meet these requirements and remain competitive many companies are turning to cloud computing. Companies thus need to formulate a strategy that can easily move them from traditional on-premises IT to private or public clouds.
Oracle understand the need for IT organizations to move to cloud computing at the same time also recognizes that moving to the cloud is a multi-step journey that starts with standardization and consolidation of IT infrastructure and ends by moving applications and data to the cloud.
The PDF is meant to help you gauge through the Oracle’s SPARC servers and give you an experience of simplified journey to the cloud by using the same technology for both cloud and on-premises deployments. No matter where your IT organization is on the journey to the cloud SPARC servers will be an i
"In today’s IT infrastructure, data security can no longer be treated as an afterthought, because billions of dollars are lost each year to computer intrusions and data exposures. This issue is compounded by the aggressive build-out for cloud computing. Big data and machine learning applications that perform tasks such as fraud and intrusion detection, trend detection, and click-stream and social media analysis all require forward-thinking solutions and enough compute power to deliver the performance required in a rapidly evolving digital marketplace.
Companies increasingly need to drive the speed of business up, and organizations need to support their customers with real-time data. The task of managing sensitive information while capturing, analyzing, and acting upon massive volumes of data every hour of every day has become critical.

Cloud computing has been gaining momentum for years. As the technology leaves the early adopter phase and becomes mainstream, many organizations find themselves scrambling to overcome the challenges that come with a more distributed infrastructure. One of those difficulties is getting through a major cloud migration.
It is one thing to roll out a few applications and cloud pilot projects, it is an entirely different challenge to start using the cloud across multiple lines of business at massive scale. That is the point that organizations are beginning to reach, and the time has come to take a serious look at cloud migration best practices.
Whether critical applications live in the cloud, in the data center, or both, organizations need a point of control for application security. Learn how you can achieve the security, intelligence, and performance that today's infrastructure demands.
