Data breaches are bad for business, so every enterprise needs security. In the past this was expensive, because security products were designed for companies with deep pockets and teams of experts. But that's changed. New 'cloud based' services, such as those offered by Qualys, are fast to deploy, safe and easy to use. What's more they're even more affordable. With growing demands from customers and regulators for security, now is a good time to invest in security. Leading cloud-based security services deliver a professional level of security assurance in a form that fits the circumstances and pockets of small businesses.
"This paper provides guidance to organizations interested in researching Oracle’s SPARC M7 and Oracle Solaris 11 security features and capabilities. It will also provide a high level overview of some of the noteworthy features that these two product offerings bring to the market. We will review industry best practices in information security as it relates to these Oracle products in the context of a secure implementation. This paper is not meant to be an in depth technical paper, position paper, or security implementation guide. It will instead endeavor to deliver a foundational level of knowledge of the SPARC M7 processor and server technology and the function set within Oracle Solaris 11 that are primarily relevant to information security as it is current understood. The information used to compose this paper was collected from a variety of open sources, interviews with Oracle subject matter experts, and reviews of OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) documentation and specification

This competitive review between Red Hat and TIBCO integration technologies has presented multiple differences between the products.
A notable difference is that only Red Hat JBoss Fuse is a 100% open source product. Red Hat is committed to leveraging existing open source projects and using open standards whenever possible for both product implementation and integration communication. This includes Camel, the de-facto integration standard included with Red Hat JBoss Fuse. Red Hat’s open source commitment extends to Active MQ, the upstream messaging technology used with JBoss A-MQ and included with Red Hat JBoss Fuse.
Another difference is that Red Hat JBoss Fuse clustering is based on the upstream Fabric8 community project and offers much more functionality than TIBCO clustering options.

Threats have become a board-level concern and it’s fueled a spending spree in security products over the last two years. So why don’t companies feel more prepared to identify and respond to these threats?
For many organizations, disconnected point solutions have increased the complexity of their security environments, making it difficult to respond quickly to threats – and nearly impossible to demonstrate ROI.
IBM Security commissioned Forrester Consulting to evaluate the state of security complexity and the effect it is having on security efficiency and effectiveness. In the study, many respondents reported taking steps to simplify their security environments and the results are promising. Fill out this form to read more about it.

Your security products send alerts when a cyber attack strikes. Your incident response plan tells you what to do to block the attacker’s action and recover normal operations. But do you know how or where the attacker was able to get into your environment? Do you understand the tactics, techniques and procedures the attacker used?
In short, to move to the next level of security, organizations need a way to both understand and manage threat intelligence. Because an organization that can uncover the context of a threat can also better respond to it. Learn more about the impact of security threats from this whitepaper.

Clearly, they are the innovation drivers and must-haves for every vendor of automation products that want to be recognized as leaders or challengers. Sooner or later they will become standards and used by followers and niche players, but the key question for the market of automation suppliers is not who is first in developing and providing all the nice concepts and technologies, but who is creating and combining them in the right way so that they can be turned into new revenue streams.

Manufacturing presents one of the largest opportunities for seizing the value of IoT integration — and among the fastest to adopt IoT solutions. Manufacturers see IoT as an improvement to help manage the large number of assets involved in manufacturing and to reduce the time it takes to make products.
Still, many wonder what value IoT can actually bring their business. This interactive eBook from IDC and Schneider Electric identifies the top reasons to invest in IoT, and how to ensure manufacturers get the most out of their investments.
Schneider Electric surveyed over 400 worldwide machine builders and factory end users in 2015. The questions they answered all centered around what their machines and plants would need to look like in 2020 if their businesses were to sustain growth and boost productivity. Their feedback has shaped (and will continue to shape) Schneider Electric digitized solution investments.
Key requirements identified included:
• Tools that could accommodate a younger, less skilled, and less experienced workforce
• A need for simpler integration through open software connectivity and more open field buses
• A need for whole lifecycle support of the products they purchase
Read this eBook to see answers to some of these identified key points from those surveyed.
Every day, people are showing up to work for your channel partners. Some of those people are disengaged, which can have a significant impact on your ultimate success as a manufacturer or franchisor. Engaged channel employees deliver better customer experiences, stay longer with their employer and are more willing to talk their employer up as a great place to work. You’ve worked hard to develop outstanding products and services that are being distributed through your channel. Don’t let disengaged employees put your brand at risk. Download our article to learn how to drive and sustain engagement among your channel employees.
If you’re a sales manager, you’re probably feeling stuck in the middle. On one hand, you have a huge employee engagement movement going on with HR departments focusing on developing leaders and recognizing achievements with substantial budgets. On the other side, marketing departments are using technology and creativity (and also large budgets) to connect with and educate customers about their products, solutions and brands.
The trend is to challenge every dollar spent on sales compensation to maximize ROI. HR departments are treating salespeople like all other employees. And customers are going online to avoid anyone with sales in their title.
Based on our research and applications we see in our customers’ leading sales initiatives, if you’re a sales manager, you are trying to maximize results out of your sales team by increasing your teams engagement to meet company goals. Download this white paper to see which eight trends you should consider as you strategize for the year.

Documents are an integral component to the successful operation of an organization. Whether in hardcopy or digital form, they enable the communication, transaction, and recording of business-critical information.
To ensure documents are used effectively, organizations are encouraged to continually evaluate and improve surrounding workflows.

These types of enhancements can save time, money, and frustration.
This white paper will discuss top trends and requirements in the optimization of document-related business processes as well as general technology infrastructures for document management. It will also address how some office technology vendors have reacted to these trends to guide their design and development of products, solutions, and services.
