"Financial services institutions are high-value targets for cyberattacks because of the capital they control, the personal information on customers they maintain, and the fear an attack on a bank generates in the public.
Phishing attacks on FSIs have risen steadily, especially employee credential theft - because once an employee’s credentials are stolen, cyberattackers can access customer information, employee data, even finances.
While legacy security solutions claim to block up to 99.9 percent of cyberattacks, all it takes is one employee or contractor to open an email from an unknown source, download a file from a compromised website, or in any other way fall victim to a cyberattack.
So, it’s time for a new approach: Isolation, also known as, remote browsing.
Download this Financial Services Best Practices Guide to Isolation to learn how to best eliminate phishing attacks and web malware.
Wherever an organization is in the world today, it relies on IT in its quest to drive revenues,
improve profit margins, and service customers. Yet most small- to mid-sized businesses (SMBs)
and government agencies select IT infrastructure solutions that drive higher costs and limit the
business' ability to respond to changes in the marketplace. This is driven by perceptions that
many IT executives running Linux and open source applications have regarding server platforms.
Today, as IT departments struggle to design and implement solutions capable of managing exponential data growth with strict requirements for application scale and performance, many
of them are turning to in-memory data grids (IMDGs).

Recognize these six misconceptions that can harm your success.
Don’t be “fuzzy” about interoperability and sharing data. Misinformation abounds. Get the straight scoop and the right start to your interoperability plan. Robust interoperability is critical to sustain and grow your organization. It’s the top priority of the Office of the National Coordinator of Health Information Technology (ONC). It should be a high priority for you too.

Communications service providers are looking for alternative deployment models that will help them support fast-growing network demand. Moving to a virtualized EPC (vEPC) solution can help service providers achieve more cost-e?ective scaling by using standard high-volume servers in place of purpose-built systems. System integrators, software vendors, and platform providers rely on Intel® technologies to deliver the performance and scalability required for vEPC solutions. Intel is also participating in the development of open standards, contributing to the open source community, developing reference architectures, engaging with industry participants, and collaborating on trials that can help facilitate the evolution to vEPC solutions and accelerate network transformation by use of network functions virtualization.

MongoDB is an open-source, document database designed with both scalability and developer agility in mind. MongoDB bridges the gap between key-value stores, which are fast and scalable, and relational databases, which have rich functionality. Instead of storing data in rows and columns as one would with a relational database, MongoDB stores JSON documents with dynamic schemas.
Customers should consider three primary factors when evaluating databases: technological fit, cost, and topline implications. MongoDB's flexible and scalable data model, robust feature set, and high-performance, high-availability architecture make it suitable for a wide range of database use cases. Given that in many cases relational databases may also be a technological fit, it is helpful to consider the relative costs of each solution when evaluating which database to adopt.

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.”

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 currently 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 specificatio

IDC Analyst Report: A New Breed of Servers for Digital Transformation
Most organizations today are on a digital transformation journey and a server infrastructure is a critical component of that journey. Read the IDC Analyst Report “A New Breed of Servers for Digital Transformation" to find out:
• A roadmap for servers in three stages - from running simple stateless web applications to adopting open source DBMSs to cloud to predictive modeling
• How you can take advantage of OpenPOWER-based infrastructure from a price/performance perspective
• Ways to lower your IT spend and increase your workloads with minimal investment
Is open source secure? How much business risk is introduced with it? Fortify surveyed the open source community for an answer and revealed that open source projects lack the three essential elements of security: people, process and technology. Read this research to discover what actions can reduce these risks within your organization.
For a CISO, open source introduces a new source of risk and unique security challenge: how do you influence developers over whom you have no direct management control? Jennifer Bayuk, former CISO of Bear Stearns, provides insight on best practices for evaluating, deploying and managing open source code.
Recently, enterprises have seen enormous gains in scalability, flexibility, and affordability as they migrated from proprietary, monolithic server architectures to architectures that are virtualized, open source, standardized, and commoditized.
It's hard to believe, but some enterprises still use custom-coded Web content management (WCM)solutions. However, consumer demands have forced firms to shift from just managing and publishing Web sites to the daunting complexities of multichannel customer engagement, and it has becomeuntenable to build and maintain the required tools. With few exceptions, any firm with a custom-coded WCM platform should begin transitioning to a commercial or open source solution. For some firms,open source products offer the attractions of custom-coding with lesser software development and maintenance burdens.

HRIS solutions designed for very large organizations can be costly to set up and maintain, and often require the services of an army of consultants to keep them operational. Systems designed for very small organizations concentrate on either HR functions such as attendance and compensation, or on benefits management, but usually lack the ability to integrate the two areas. To be a practical investment choice for a mid-tier organization, a satisfactory HRIS solution must have its HR and benefits functions highly integrated. It must be agile so it can easily be kept aligned with the constant change in compliance laws, and it must be robust and secure, built on a tried and true platform foundation.
