-Compliance with local, state, federal and international statutory requirements
- Electronic discovery requirements and best practices
- Knowledge management applications
- Disaster recovery and business continuity

In today's virtual enterprise, access to corporate resources must be secure, reliable, and manageable, with consistently enforced policy while simultaneously allowing access from anywhere at any time. This is why access network strategies are critical to business growth.
This whitepaper gives a broad overview of the ways in which Akamai can help organizations bolster the security of their Web-based assets, with capabilities ranging across the application, network, and DNS layers, as well as solutions focused on Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) mitigation and business continuity.
Virtualization and the cloud have effectively become mandates for IT. Though we are still somewhat early in the virtualization and cloud lifecycles, it's quite clear that these two technologies are going to become major, if not dominant models of IT.
Virtualization deployment will continue to grow dramatically, fueled by a variety of factors, including continued use of virtualization to support consolidation efforts; growth of virtualization use in mission-critical applications and workloads; growth in virtualization among small and midsize organizations; successful deployment of virtualization as a strategic initiative to enhance business agility; and virtualization as the foundation for next-generation cloud computing services.
The modern enterprise is dependent upon connectivity at every level. Every business initiative, whether driven by sales, marketing, manufacturing, finance, R&D or HR, is dependent upon reliable network availability and continuity. Disrupting that continuity is what Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks are all about.

Enterprises with mission critical applications are exploring the benefits of disaster recovery sites for their data centers to ensure business continuity. Special network technology is needed to ensure that site failover and failback occurs reliably and predictably. An ideal solution should provide reliable network connections, manage inbound and outbound traffic over multiple WAN links, failover to a secondary data center if all links at the primary data center are down, and eliminate deployment barriers and costs of multi-homing with BGP (Border Gateway Protocol).
Most companies have plans in place to ensure employee-to-employee communications following a business disruption event (BDE). But many companies haven’t addressed how communications will be maintained with partners (suppliers, vendors, channel partners, etc.) and customers.
To succeed in a tough marketplace, small businesses must be accessible, without significant interruption, even in the most adverse situations. This kind of ongoing accessibility is an important aspect of business continuity - a critical success strategy that doesn't just happen, but requires proactive planning. Although there are several aspects to a business continuity plan, a major component of any plan should be the SME's communications capabilities, not just its equipment or data. This paper will explore how different kinds of interruptions can adversely affect an SME's business continuity and illustrate how, through advanced features such as resiliency and mobility, Avaya's IP Office can help SMEs overcome interruptions and maintain business continuity.

For many years, organizations thought about business continuity in much the same way they thought about business insurance — yes, it was important, but rarely was it top of mind. But that’s all changed. Many organizations have, unfortunately, discovered that even a scant few minutes of service downtime can have deleterious effects on their business operations, resulting in lost revenue, diminished customer confidence and heightened compliance risk.
For those and other reasons, IT executives have raised the bar on business continuity preparedness for their organizations in all ways. New technologies, business processes and partnerships, combined with a raised level of importance for testing and a full appreciation of what virtualization can and can’t do for business continuity, are essential to new thinking around avoiding the impact
of an unplanned service interruption.

There is no question that security attacks targeting your organization will continue to grow and evolve. The question is, how can you respond to malware and other risks without unnecessarily constraining your workforce? How can you get beyond the fear and anxiety that leads to excessive prohibition, prevention, blocking, and excluding – so that you can use security technology to both protect and empower people?
The answer is with a multi-layered defense – one that uses advanced security technologies and sophisticated operational practices in combination to cover the full spectrum of threat vectors. This solution brief explores the growing importance of multi-layered defense in today’s fast-changing web environment, and key considerations in implementing an effective multi-layered defense strategy.
