Cisco has recently unveiled its new intent-based networking strategy, called "The Network. Intuitive." The goal of intent-based networking is to allow greater levels of automation, security integration, and centralized manageability within a software subscription orientation. Intent-based networking is underpinned by Software-Defined Access (SDA), Cisco's automation engine built upon the company's Digital Network Architecture (DNA), which automates network segmentation, policy enforcement, and troubleshooting. Other core components of the announcement include a refresh of Cisco Catalyst switches, a new licensing model for infrastructure, and an all-in-one management console called DNA Center.
Employees are increasingly using bring-your-own devices (BYOD) to work and accessing corporate IT resources from home. Until now, management of BYOD within IT was piecemeal, with most organizations cob¬bling together solutions that included mobile device management software, unified access suites, security, and hardware. Read this technology brief to learn how Windows Server 2012 R2 takes the guesswork and integration out of BYOD security and administration, providing one point of control and management for IT organizations.

Before you transform your business with mobility services, you need to consider both the management and security challenges you’ll face from the combination of mobile devices and cloud-based apps.
In this IDC report, you’ll examine enterprise mobility management technology—offered through solutions such as the Microsoft Enterprise Mobility Suite—and how it helps manage the security risks of your mobility strategy.
Learn about these critical benefits:
• Provisioning and configuration devices and users—across platforms
• Ensuring only authorized users access data with identity system integration
• Ensuring only compliant devices access the corporate network through conditional access policies
• Allowing mobile applications to deploy in a more secure, streamline manner with enterprise app stores
• Providing security for data at rest, within workflows or over wireless networks, using granular policies around applications
This paper explores the implications of cloud, big data and analytics, mobile, social business and the evolving IT security landscape on data center and enterprise networks and the changes that organizations will need to make in order to capitalize on these technology force.
The threat landscape has evolved and the traditional approach to endpoint security cannot keep up. Detection/response is not an acceptable approach. There are a number of approaches to prevent threats on the endpoint and their ability to prevent unknown and zero-day threats varies widely. Join this webinar featuring a guest speaker from Forrester where we will discuss the findings from a recent commissioned survey they conducted that evaluates these approaches and illustrates that exploit prevention and integration with a network security platform are must-have capabilities. Forrester will also summarize their recommendations for prevention of advanced threats on the endpoint.
The popularity of integration platform as a service (iPaaS) started with business users looking to gain control and share data among their proliferating SaaS apps?without needing IT intervention.
iPaaS was then adopted by IT to support business users to ensure security measures were being maintained and to provide more of a self-service environment. Now, iPaaS has evolved from a niche solution to taking a much bigger role:

Learn from this TDWI paper how right-sized information governance can improve the success of data warehousing or big data analytics initiatives, and how a chief data officer can help organizations to appreciate the value of data and its importance to their decisions and operations.
If you’re managing an IT team, you may be turning to DevOps as the path to faster delivery of software.
DevOps can help your team become more efficient — and your organization more competitive — but you’ll need to be able to communicate to your team why things are changing, and how their usual working practices are likely to alter.
Download this guide to explore:
• How to align DevOps with your organization’s goals.
• What change might look like — for operations, development and the organization at large.
• Why security is a great icebreaker.
• The importance of focusing on the team over individual DevOps specialists.
• How to embrace agile ways of working, along with infrastructure as code, code review, continuous integration and unit testing.
The word is out. Apple has officially arrived in the enterprise. Once thought of as only for consumers, Apple has not so quietly created a $25 billion enterprise business — with no signs of slowing. If you want to join the Apple at work movement, but have questions yourself about security best practices or, more likely, need to alleviate the security concerns of your executives or information security team, we can help.
Topics covered include:
How the Apple ecosystem is structured
How Apple management differs from Windows
What security features are unique to the Apple ecosystem
What to consider when adding new Apple devices
What Apple integrations are available to leverage what you already have
Complete enterprise security requires coordination. Firms must integrate the technologies and data that come from the endpoint and network
layers to make accurate decisions that ensure optimal threat detection, containment, and remediation. Unfortunately, too many firms rely on a
huge variety of solutions that require manual integration and correlation, leading to wasted time and poor threat detection. Security leaders
must automate these processes to eliminate detection lag and improve prevention efforts.

Dinosaurs are super cool, but there are some places where dinosaurs don’t belong, and one of those is in your fast-paced DevOps environment. We’re in a new world where traditional security solutions no longer make the cut. Software is increasingly complex, and when deployed at the speed of DevOps, it creates a new type of risk: Software Exposure. Legacy application security tools are too big, too slow, and too clunky to deliver the innovation needed to protect your customers in the 21st century.
The Software Exposure Platform from Checkmarx is an entirely new species heralding the next generation of software security. The platform builds security in from the beginning, supporting all stages of the software development lifecycle, allowing enterprises to deliver secure software at the speed of DevOps while mitigating their business risk.
