"When apps run efficiently, employees are more likely to use them.”
The promise of unified communications (UC) is that it is supposed to increase efficiencies and make internal operations more seamless. But that only happens when it’s working properly.
According to Robin Gareiss, president and founder of Nemertes Research, “Companies devote 33% more IT staff to managing IP telephony and 31% more to UC when they don’t use monitoring tools. The tools are instrumental to identifying, isolating, and resolving performance issues—and preventing them from happening again. When apps run efficiently, employees are more likely to use them.” That’s one reason 36% more people actually use UC in large companies that use monitoring tools.
Join Robin Gareiss, president and founder, Nemertes Research and David Roberts, director of product management, Riverbed, as they explore the different approaches to monitoring UC—network probes vs endpoint telemetry—and why taking a combined approach helps you

Cybercriminals can be goal-driven and patient, and they often have a singular focus, plenty of time and access to vast, modern technical resources. Both organized and forum-based criminals are working constantly to find innovative and efficient ways to steal information and money with the lowest risk to their personal freedom. If we wish to stay “one step ahead” of the threats detailed in this report, awareness of online criminal threats, techniques and markets is our best defense.
Achieving and maintaining a high level of information security requires information security professionals with robust skills as well as organisational, technical and operational capabilities. The gap between intent and ability to be secure is evident in our sample of UK large enterprises. Deficient companies will only close that gap when they acquire the necessary capabilities. Some of these capabilities can be purchased as information security tools or application solutions, but it is more prudent for an organisation to consider acquiring these capabilities through a service arrangement with a dedicated security services partner.
Despite long-standing concerns captured in a myriad of surveys, security in the cloud has progressed to a more practical and achievable level.
The cloud represents a shared security responsibility model whereby that responsibility is split between the Cloud Service Provider and the cloud customer. For organisations moving some or all of their applications and data to the cloud, acceptance of this model clears the way to more thoughtful consideration for how security can and should be architected — from the ground up. As a result, IT and IT Security leaders now have a much clearer trajectory to support their business operations in the cloud in a secure manner.
Finding a strategic partnership with a trusted security expert that can assist you in all the aspects of information security is vital. SecureWorks is a market leader in security that can close the security gap in organisations by evaluating security maturity across an enterprise, help define security strategies and implement and manage security program plans. We are a true strategic partner that can help a CISO embed security at all levels of the organisation.
The SecureWorks Security and Risk Consulting practice provides expertise and analysis to help you enhance your security posture, reduce your risk, facilitate compliance and improve your operational efficiency.
Technical Tests are designed to cover specific services. Each security test has its own objectives and acceptable levels of risk. There is not an individual technique that provides a comprehensive picture of an organisation’s security when executed alone. A qualified third party can work with you to determine what combination of techniques you should use to evaluate your security posture and controls to begin to determine where you may be vulnerable.
GDPR will pose different challenges to each organisation. Understanding and acting on the implications for your own organisation is vital. That means taking a risk-based approach to ensure that you are doing what you need to do to manage your own specific risks to personal information.
While virtually all organisations will have to implement changes to become GDPR compliant, some will be able to take partial advantage of existing compliance to other security mandates and frameworks, such as ISO 27001 and PCI by extending those measures to protection of personal data. Even so, further work will be required to comply with GDPR, both with regards to security and its other aspects.
To compete in today’s fast-paced business climate, enterprises need
accurate and frequent sales and customer reports to make real-time
operational decisions about pricing, merchandising and inventory
management. They also require greater agility to respond to business
events as they happen, and more visibility into business activities so
information and systems are optimized for peak efficiency and performance.
By making use of data capture and business intelligence to
integrate and apply data across the enterprise, organizations can capitalize
on emerging opportunities and build a competitive advantage.
The IBM® data replication portfolio is designed to address these issues
through a highly flexible one-stop shop for high-volume, robust, secure
information replication across heterogeneous data stores.
The portfolio leverages real-time data replication to support high

This paper touches upon the following topics:
-Critical vulnerabilities are on the decline, but still pose a significant threat
-Mature technologies introduce continued risk
-Mobile platforms represent a major growth area for vulnerabilities
-Web applications remain a substantial source of vulnerabilities
-Cross-site scripting remains a major threat to organizations and users
-Effective mitigation for cross-frame scripting remains noticeably absent
HP Enterprise Security provides a broad view of the vulnerability landscape, ranging from industry-wide data down to a focused look at different technologies, including web and mobile. The goal of this report is to provide the kind of actionable security that intelligence organizations need to understand the vulnerability landscape as well as best deploy their resources to minimize security risk.
