Today's threat landscape has never been more challenging for federal agencies. Governments face a growing torrent of cyber attacks that are growing increasingly sophisticated, stealthy, and dangerous. Legacy signature-based solutions and file-based sandbox analysis cannot detect these advanced attacks, let alone stop them. Without advanced identification and remediation tools, agencies can go weeks or even months before discovering system breaches - long after the damage is done.
This paper outlines:
The malware ""kill-chain"" model used in today's advanced attacks;
What capabilities federal agencies need to combat advanced threats;
A reimagined approach to IT security.

It’s easy to understand why many organizations are confused about the need for a Managed File Transfer (MFT) system. There are a lot of different products in the market, file transfer product functionality is not clearly defined and often overlaps with other solutions, “MFT” is not fully understood, and there are a lot of mixed messages in the marketplace.
Countless organizations are deploying digital workspace solutions to meet the demands of today’s mobile end users and the IT administrators that support them. The goal is to empower users to work from anywhere, on any device—mobile or laptop—at any time. However, architecting a secure, seamless, scalable digital workspace solution is not necessarily easy, which is where this paper helps.
When developing your digital workspace, it is important to keep five key considerations in mind, both on the front end and the back end of your environment:
• Seamless, secure end-user access to applications and files
• Easy-to-use enterprise app store
• Management security
• Fully integrated infrastructure stack
• Agnostic platform with a broad ecosystem
Download this white paper to see how to approach these major considerations, with detailed strategies, and provide recommendations for effectively addressing each one.
The whispers of “imaging is dead” accompanied macOS High Sierra as Apple introduced Apple File System (APFS) to the Mac. Now, whispers have turned to shouts as macOS Mojave takes yet another step further in rendering imaging a thing of the past.
This white paper examines all things imaging and looks at the reasoning behind the transition, what new provisioning workflows are available to you, and the benefits of adhering to a more modern deployment method.

One of the fundamental decisions in the design of data centers, server rooms and network closets is which uninterruptible power supply (UPS) systems to use. You cannot be certain that the power you receive from your local utility will be suitable for your equipment, or that it will always be available. And even when you are receiving good-quality power from the utility, equipment inside your facility (such as electric motors) can introduce power problems.
A network/server UPS system conditions input power 24x7 to ensure that your equipment always receives reliable power and protection from damaging and disruptive power problems. A network/server UPS system also supports your equipment during power failures, providing enough battery backup runtime to outlast shorter outages. During longer outages, the UPS system will provide enough runtime to save files and gracefully shut down systems or to ensure that equipment is powered until standby generators are ready to support the load.
The problem with the vast majority of network and endpoint security solutions is that they operate on the premise of static whitelists and blacklists. These lists do not account for the changing nature of URLs, IPs, files and applications, nor for the volume of unknown threats permeating the web, meaning they cannot be used to provide adequate protection.
Compounding this problem is that commercial network security technology, such as NGFWs and unified threat management systems, can easily flood the organization’s network security teams with too many alerts and false positives, making it impossible to understand and respond to new threats. As a result, not only do these threats evade the security technology and
land with the victim’s infrastructure, but they also have plenty of time to steal sensitive data and inflict damage to the victim’s business. The final characteristic of the latest attacks is how quickly they compromise and exfiltrate data from the organization, compared to the

Enterprises must prepare for the emerging digital user. Future interactions among people, whether enterprise employees, partners or customers, will be primarily digital and heavily influenced by mobile devices, social media, analytics and the cloud. User interactions with systems of record, such as databases and files, will largely give way to interactions with systems of engagement, such as social media.

VMware® Horizon Mirage™ is a layered image management solution that separates a PC into logical layers that either IT or the user own and manage. IT-owned layers are typically OS and corporate applications while user-owned layers consist of their own files and applications. The Horizon Mirage solution enables:
• Updates to individual IT-managed layers, such as core operating system files and
common business applications, without disrupting other layers, all while maintaining
user data and installed applications.
• Simpler backup by taking snapshots of layered images, enabling desktop disaster
recovery and helping to ensure continued end-user productivity.
We’ve heard it before. A data warehouse is a place for formally-structured, highly-curated data, accommodating recurring business analyses, whereas data lakes are places for “raw” data, serving analytic workloads, experimental in nature. Since both conventional and experimental analysis is important in this data-driven era, we’re left with separate repositories, siloed data, and bifurcated skill sets.
Or are we? In fact, less structured data can go into your warehouse, and since today’s data warehouses can leverage the same distributed file systems and cloud storage layers that host data lakes, the warehouse/lake distinction’s very premise is rapidly diminishing. In reality, business drivers and business outcomes demand that we abandon the false dichotomy and unify our data, our governance, our analysis, and our technology teams.

There are several reasons for this, including the inability of healthcare institutions to constantly monitor post-operative deterioration as well as patient's inability to visit the healthcare center for post-operation followups. Most of the patient data is recorded manually. This data is often weaned from displays of multiple monitoring devices like vitals monitor, infusion pumps, and ventilators. More often than not, these devices do not talk to each other or to a central system.
Doctors, nurses, or other care-givers manually note down patient statistics in their files and notepads. Even though the healthcare industry is in the throes of digitization, there's still a lot of paper doing the rounds. eventually, the data from these physical sheets might be fed into an electronic system, but there is a high chance of error in that process.

TMCC's Financial Aid Department (FA) stores about 14,000 hardcopy files, and processes approximately 7,000 new applications a year. FA workers were running out of space to house all of the files when they were told their office might be moved, resulting in the loss of their file room altogether. Since they are required by the U.S. Department of Education to keep files for four years (sometimes longer depending on a specific regulation) they knew converting to an electronic file system would save both time and money while serving their students better.

This white paper examines the economics of deploying Red Hat's Storage Server. Based on GlusterFS, a distributed file system that Red Hat acquired as part of Gluster, Red Hat Storage Server is ushering in a new era of software-based storage (also known as software-defined storage by many suppliers) solutions. Such solutions leverage commodity x86-based hardware from server vendors and a distributed shared nothing architecture that allows businesses to build out a service-based storage infrastructure in an economically feasible manner.
Digital transformation (DX) is the continuous process by which enterprises adapt to or drive disruptive change by leveraging digital competencies, such as harnessing sensor data or using location, customer profile, and a mobile app to make shopping recommendations. DX reshapes the organization's culture where required; leverages existing processes, systems, and assets; and creates net-new digital capabilities as needed.
With DX, there is the need to embrace new business models and new architectures and technologies that will help an enterprise with customer-facing innovation as well as transition existing systems, processes, organization structure, and relationships to support the transformation.
