In this paper, we provide an overview of the Two Sigma Factor Lens, designed for
analyzing multi-asset portfolios and derived from returns of broad, liquid asset class
proxy indexes. This lens is intended to be:
• Holistic, by capturing the large majority of cross-sectional and
time-series risk for typical institutional portfolios;
• Parsimonious, by using as few factors as possible;
• Orthogonal, with each risk factor capturing a statistically
uncorrelated risk across assets;
• Actionable, such that desired changes to factor exposure can
be readily translated into asset allocation changes.
Finally, we discuss methods for constructing and assessing the Two Sigma Factor
Lens that can be extended to produce additional risk factors for new sub-assetclasses
or cross-sectional risks that may not currently be captured by the lens.1
This factor lens, and our ongoing work to expand it, form the foundations of the

ProxySG in conjunction with an NGFW is essential for providing
optimal protection. The ProxySG is engineered to withstand
evasion techniques, making it a perfect complement to your NGFW. Its leading web-proxy technology identifies and blocks malicious web content, and its open architecture allows integration with best-of-breed products for an enhanced security posture.
These top 10 advantages represent just a few of the reasons why
SWG and NGFW technologies are complementary in nature and
why enterprises should implement them together for a layered
defense against advanced attacks and targeted threats.

This paper provides a brief recap of the functionality provided by web proxies, why proxy architecture is still a vital building block for a comprehensive web defense, and how web proxies can work with other solutions such as next-gen firewall (NGFW) to deepen the organization’s defenses against advanced web-based threats.
Cloud computing is rapidly entering an entirely new phase – one destined to prove far more transformative and disruptive than the initial phase of cloud deployment. Cloud is driving a comprehensive transformation of digital assets in organizations of all stripes as IT decision-makers begin to view the emerging cloud construct as a proxy for the transformation of IT itself.
Network readiness is an important factor in any new IT project at companies both large and small. New applications seem to require more bandwidth than the applications that they replace. These applications can also bring in new users, sometimes by the thousands. In some cases, the network services and/or capacity are not ready for these changes, and the IT rollout suffers.
This guide covers the following topics: bandwidth, wireless, firewalls, content filtering, proxy servers, and others.
