Security was once largely limited to the confines of an on-premises world, but now it must extend to the cloud, as well as a myriad of mobile devices.
Employees and companies now expect increasingly complex interactions with devices, apps, data, and even other users. As many companies struggle to keep up with traditional single-point solutions, and limited budgets, this pressure is creating security blind spots for IT.
In a world of evolving threats, it is becoming increasingly impossible to address all of these issues with an on-premises solution.
What is needed is a holistic approach to identity-driven security—one that leverages a cloud-scale intelligent security graph to help you protect your business.
In this vision whitepaper, we look into some of the challenges facing IT in the modern world and examine the possible solutions.

The sponsor named below commissioned Ardent Partners to write this report. While the report topic In 2015, collaboration is the name of the game in procurement and frequently entails working with key internal stakeholders (like line-of-business managers and legal departments) or preferred suppliers to drive greater value through sourcing and procurement. For Chief Procurement Officers ("CPOs") and other supply management leaders, collaboration has taken on many new and innovative forms over the years, causing these executives to leverage new (and, in some cases, existing) processes, relationships, and technologies to enhance compliance, decrease risk, and increase savings. One such business process, contract management, has been reborn with digital, automated features that can shift the way procurement teams collaborate, mitigate risk, drive performance, and realize greater savings for the enterprise.
Banks have been using ECM for years, capturing, archiving and discovering documents. Some banks have adopted capture capabilities to digitize content for faster and easier access to content.

Forrester Consulting was commissioned to conduct a Total Economic Impact™ (TEI) study to examine the potential return on investment (ROI) enterprises may realize by deploying Cylance's advanced threat protection solution, CylancePROTECT®, and its deployment and configuration services, ThreatZero™. The study aims to provide readers with a framework to evaluate the potential financial impact of CylancePROTECT and ThreatZero on their organizations, which will improve customer success with advanced cybersecurity and antivirus protection solutions. To better understand the benefits, costs, and risks associated with an investment in Cylance, Forrester interviewed the Chief Information Security Officer for a Large State County Government, who has used the solutions for over a year. Cylance provides a new-generation, predictive, cybersecurity, and malware prevention solution that leverages artificial intelligence to prevent malware from executing on endpoints in real time. This is usually implemented with ThreatZero, which is a continuous professional service program rendered by Cylance for users of CylancePROTECT. ThreatZero guides through the planning, implementation, integration, and ongoing optimization of the solution. This often includes end user education, training, and support to totally eliminate endpoint threats and incidents. With CylancePROTECT and ThreatZero, the organization was able to reduce security breaches to almost zero, catching malware before it ever gained access to public records. Relative to their previous endpoint protection, this significantly reduced costs from remediation/reimaging and incidence response. Additionally, IT and security employees’ productivity were boosted.

This white paper considers the pressures that enterprises face as the volume, variety, and velocity of relevant data mount and the time to insight seems unacceptably long. Most IT environments seeking to leverage statistical data in a useful way for analysis that can power decision making must glean that data from many sources, put it together in a relational database that requires special configuration and tuning, and only then make it available for data scientists to build models that are useful for business analysts. The complexity of all this is further compounded by the need to collect and analyze data that may reside in a classic datacenter on the premises as well as in private and public cloud systems. This need demands that the configuration support a hybrid cloud environment. After describing these issues, we consider the usefulness of a purpose-built database system that can accelerate access to and management of relevant data and is designed to deliver high performance for t
