Today, it’s commonplace for companies to check the motor vehicle records (MVRs) of their drivers once a year. That’s considered due diligence. But what if one driver gets a moving violation or a citation for driving under the influence three weeks after the report was pulled? It could take months for that potentially costly issue to come to light. Likewise, a driver safety policy issued annually is typically worth about as much as the paper it’s written on. There is great potential in setting high standards and creating positive driving behaviors, but this must be a continual process informed by concrete policies, shared motivation to improve, useful data, and quality leadership. Fortunately, several important practices can help companies create a better safety culture –saving money, reducing risk and legal vulnerability, and keeping employees and communities safe. Here’s how.

For all organizations, server and component-level crises are unfortunate inevitabilities. Likewise, the need of end-users to
revert to previous file versions is a common occurrence due to predicaments large and small. Recognizing these realities,
ESG consistently recommends that organizations consider an approach to data protection that is broader than what

A must-read for IT professionals that provides a comprehensive analysis of the API management marketplace and evaluates 22 vendors across 15 essential criteria.
APIs are the de-facto standard for building and connecting modern applications. But securely delivering, managing and analyzing APIs, data and services, both inside and outside an organization, is complex. And it’s getting even more challenging as enterprise IT environments grow dependent on combinations of public, private and hybrid cloud infrastructures.
Choosing the right APIs can be critical to a platform’s success. Likewise, full lifecycle API management can be a key ingredient in running a successful API-based program. Tools like Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Full Life Cycle API Management help enterprises evaluate these platforms so they can find the right one to fit their strategy and planning.

OpenVPN is a popular and respected solution for enabling remote access to AWS VPCs for IT personnel, cloud developers, and a wide variety of end-user roles. While OpenVPN may be all that is needed to enable cloud access for a few users, it alone cannot meet the needs of growing organizations – particularly those that have security or compliance requirements. Similarly, Bastion hosts or jump hosts are often used when AWS is primarily focused on developers, but these tools likewise have scaling and security limitations.
As part of our fact-filled AWS Bootcamp series, Aviatrix CTO Sherry Wei and Neel Kamal, head of field operations at Aviatrix, review key requirements and compare the remote user VPN options available for managing and securing access to AWS VPC resources. They also demonstrate features that ensure your remote access tools and methodology are “enterprise cloud-ready.”

Whether you’re looking to centralize your content silos or empower your marketing team to more efficiently create and publish content for all your different touchpoints, the right content management system (CMS) is a business imperative. Every organization is at a different point in their ability to drive content velocity. Likewise, every organization has different levels of familiarity with relevant requirements and capabilities to look for in a CMS solution.
As Americans spend an increasing amount of time on the internet, they’re demanding a more positive, intuitive, and instant online experience—each and every time. In short, they expect the time they invest in the Web to be worth every millisecond devoted to it. Likewise, business leaders know that every visit to an organization’s Website affects the way consumers view their companies as a whole. Thus, each online interaction must be better than good and, at best, generate positive buzz. Just one negative experience, after all, can generate a negative buzz heard around the world.

This document describes how Likewise and Microsoft Active Directory can foster compliance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard, a set of requirements for businesses that process payment card information. Developed by Visa, American Express, Discover Financial Services, and other members of the PCI Security Standards Council, the standard sets forth policies, procedures, and practices to protect customer account data. The standard includes specific requirements for strictly controlling access to customer data, authenticating business users, monitoring access, maintaining a secure network, and auditing system resources. Likewise integrates Linux, Unix, and Mac OS X workstations and servers into Active Directory, providing the basis to assign each user a unique ID for authentication, authorization, monitoring, and tracking. Likewise also provides group policies for non-Windows computers so that their security settings and other configurations can be centrally managed in the same way as Windows computers.
This document describes how Likewise facilitates the implementation of enterprise single sign-on (SSO). It explains how Kerberos-aware applications can be configured to exploit the authentication infrastructure provided by Likewise. It explains the concepts as well as outlining the specific steps that must be taken to enable single sign-on support in applications.
This paper begins by exploring why SOX compliance continues to be so difficult when it is treated as an annual project rather than a continuous process. Then the paper discusses how Likewise Enterprise can help your company make the shift to continuous compliance for identity and access management in a mixed network. Likewise joins Linux, Unix, and Mac OS X computers to Active Directory, providing the basis to assign each user a unique ID for authentication, authorization, and monitoring. Likewise also includes group policies for non-Windows computers so that you can centrally manage their security settings in the same way as Windows computers.
The health care world is changing. And data has a
role to play in that change.
Traditional health care systems are becoming more
accessible and convenient, while also offering lower
priced options. Proactive care — rather than reactive
— is expected, including a shift from disease
management to disease prevention. Likewise,
a greater emphasis on personalized delivery,
including understanding populations, has led to
increased precision in holistic care management.
Combining conventional data sources with
data from previously untapped data sources —
such as electronic health records, wearables,
social determinants, social media, genetics and
diagnostics — creates new possibilities for
understanding the patterns, relationships, and
predictors of wellness and health.
Keep reading this e-book to discover how health
care leaders are generating new opportunities for
innovation and transforming how care is delivered.
