Gartner expects that by 2017, more than 50% of network attacks will use SSL/TLS. Yet most organizations lack the ability to decrypt and inspect SSL communications to detect threats. The ability to quickly decrypt and inspect SSL traffic in real time to detect threats is imperative. Download this Solution Brief: Eliminate Blind Spots in SSL Encrypted Traffic to learn how.
The SANS 20 Critical Security Controls for Effective Cyber Defense offers a blueprint of prioritized guidance to reduce risk. New updates to the SANS 20 signify the growing need to secure digital certificates and cryptographic keys to preserve trusted communications for all of your critical systems and your organization’s interactions with customers and partners.
Too often cyberattacks on keys and certificates are successful because basic security controls are not present or not properly configured. Download the Solution Brief to learn how you can effectively build scalable controls and reduce risk:
• Manage the rapid growth in certificates
• Gain visibility into where keys and certificates are located
• Secure your certificates against cyberattacks
• Enforce automation of certificate issuance and renewal
Technology is empowering today’s consumers like never before. Consumers are getting used to buying, communicating and interacting with service providers whenever and however they want. Downtime is unacceptable and as a result broadband and telco providers are constantly put to the test with regards to customer service. There is an enormous disconnect between what customers expect and what broadband and telco providers are actually providing. All customers want to be understood as individuals, but this need is not always being met. Moving forward, broadband and telco providers need to differentiate themselves and provide innovative solutions in order retain as well as gain new customers. It is no surprise that nearly half of broadband/Telco providers believe customer service is a critical competitive differentiator. Download this research study and learn how broadband and telco providers can improve customer service.
The digital service revolution is well underway. For communications service providers (CSPs), it means going beyond traditional voice and data and upgrading their entire digital communications infrastructure. Research shows enterprise-class organizations are allocating heavy dollars towards communications solutions and prefer a single provider for digital services. This is a massive opportunity for CSPs to expand their services, generate more revenue, grow profit and increase market share. However, the majority of enterprises reported not receiving a consistently excellent experience with their most recent service contract. As a result, many switch to new providers. CSPs are losing credibility and the loyalty of their customers because of legacy and traditional systems that constrain their ability to act quickly. Enterprises are looking for CSPs who understand their complex business and can offer a full portfolio of digital services with quality and creativity to meet their needs.
In this white paper we will discover what the evolving path ahead for security leaders looks like, the importance of communication from top to bottom, focusing on how proactive measures can stop threat actors from derailing businesses, and how building a security architecture that protects the most critical assets will support the overall goals of an organisation.
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.
The multichannel campaign management (MCCM) market comprises vendors that seek to orchestrate company communications and marketing offers to customer segments across channels, such as websites, mobile, social, direct mail, call centers and email.

In this video, Matt Cain, Vice President and lead e-mail analyst at Gartner, outlines some of the options available to CIOs, including running hybrid e-mail environments with tried and tested services delivered from the cloud but the Exchange server remaining onsite. Matt also discusses where Office 365 currently meets the needs of enterprise customers and where third-party services should be considered to augment its functionality in key areas.
This White Paper provides information on how mobile, cloud and UC make perfect business sense.
When everyone works together, things get done. Decisions are made faster, actions are taken effectively, and results improve. That’s why tomorrow’s market leaders are acting now to harness the power of Unified Communications and Collaboration tools and unleash the potential of their business.
This paper provides information about solving the engagement challenge.
When workers have flexibility in terms of tools, apps and devices, they can stay nimble, innovative and creative. In turn, they keep your company nimble, innovative and creative. To make it work you need to give workers the Unified Communications tools, apps and devices that allows them to better serve both internal and external customers. But that’s not as simple as it sounds. Organizations face enormous challenges in deciding whether and how to support consumer devices.
How can IT become an asset in transforming an organization’s ability to embrace Collaboration? This whitepaper summarizes IT’s role in enabling collaboration, including best practices and key actions an IT team should consider.

Colt’s award-winning solution portfolio is based on end-to-end data centre, network and IT services capabilities; its aim is to help its customers compete and win in their markets without being held back by hardware, licensing and resource limitations.
In some cases, adopting cloud IoT platform may make more sense where required processes, communication costs and cloud costs meet sufficient total cost of ownership against deploying MDC. Additionally, in situations that an end-user organization already has a secure room or a modular data center solution where infrastructure can be housed and/or the amount of infrastructure involved may be too small to benefit from power/cooling advantages of being housed in an MDC, the organization may not see a need for an MDC. An MDC is nothing more than a smaller form of a modular data center, and a number of providers have entered the modular data center solutions space in the past. These modular data center solution providers came into the market with high expectations for growth and ROI only to find that high sales were not forthcoming due to limited use cases, so many exited the space.
Most successful data center migration projects share similar practices, such as expertise, preparation, management, execution, communication and business alignment. The purpose of this research is not to provide an extensive examination of each one of these practices. Rather, it is to provide a pragmatic list of best practices. This list was derived from observations of numerous Gartner clients involved in data center migration projects over the last six years.

Industry convergence is collapsing the barriers between formerly distinct industries. According to “Redefining Connections: Insights from the Global C-suite Study – The CIO Perspective,” produced by the IBM Institute for Business Value, CIOs believe this is the biggest trend transforming the business arena.
Despite talented IT teams and years of head start in both architectural and development work, it is still difficult to respond to these challenges using traditional development patterns centered around monolithic software applications. It’s simply impossible to get to market quickly when applications need to be maintained, modified and scaled as a single entity by a large, heavily inter-dependent team.
t’s stunning really, that something as basic as communication among your care team members is such a significant factor in your success as a health delivery organization. And yet, it’s proven every day in
