The real test of any SAM system goes beyond creating a one-time Effective Licensing Position (ELP) for a given software publisher. To be truly valuable, the SAM solution has to have the ability to manage change.
Being able to work from a dependable list of software that has been approved by, and which also serves the business, means that finite IT & SAM resources are not wasted through the support of legacy software that might be deemed redundant, and should keep a company on track technically by not becoming dependent on aging software.
This 10 –Minute Guide from SAM experts at Snow Software will show how to establish and maintain a Software Catalog for the purpose of ensuring that your software estate remains relevant and fit for its business purpose.
Security breaches are expensive, costing U.S. businesses an average of $3.5 million per incident, which doesn’t include brand damage or other intangibles. Unfortunately, breaches are highly likely to happen, with 87% of organizations experiencing a breach in the past 12 months.
Data, whether it’s intellectual property or personal data, needs to be protected. Dell Data Protection solutions provide encryption, malware protection, and authentication for Dell and non-Dell products, to equip businesses with a complete, easy-to-manage, end-user security solution.
The cloud is a network of servers housing data, software, and services. Cloud services are commonly accessed via the Internet, instead of locally in a data center. Businesses are increasingly relying on the cloud for cybersecurity for two key reasons: 1. Due to a changing threat landscape, there’s a need for more scale, accuracy, experience, and collective intelligence. These resources are out of reach internally for most organizations. 2. There are fundamental limits with on-premises hardware mitigation appliances and enterprise data centers for Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) and web attack protection.

Cylance commissioned AV-TEST to perform an advanced threat prevention test of enterprise endpoint protection software. The testing methodology was jointly developed to provide additive testing to the commodity antivirus protection tests currently produced by AV-TEST. CylancePROTECT® was tested against five competitor endpoint products from Kaspersky, McAfee, Sophos, Symantec, and Trend Micro. The tests were performed in December 2016 and January 2017. This report contains the results of four test cases. The primary goal was to show the detection and prevention capabilities of new and unknown malicious executables. Read more in the AV-TEST report.
AWS provides powerful controls to manage the security of software-defined infrastructure and
cloud workloads, including virtual networks for segmentation, DDoS mitigation, data encryption,
and identity and access control. Because AWS enables rapid and elastic scalability, the key
to securing cloud environments is using security automation and orchestration to effectively
implement consistent protection across your AWS environment.
The following eBook will discuss Dome9 best practices for using AWS controls to establish a
strict security posture that addresses your unique business needs, and maintaining consistency
across regions, accounts, and Virtual Private Clouds (VPCs) as your environment grows.

According to the Ponemon Institute, the annual cost of malware breaches averaged $8.4 million. Read this white paper to gain insights into critical information to safeguard against DNS security threats and disrupt malware communications to your DNS servers.
This white paper highlights why organizations need to implement event log auditing as an integral part of their security policy to meet industry standards such as the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS).
Software development has evolved from rigid waterfall methodologies to more streamlined
approaches, like Agile and more recently DevOps. This evolution has taken place in
large part to shorten development life cycles and meet increased business demands.
Today, businesses of all sizes have built an advantage by implementing a DevOps culture
and processes, which break down silos between development and operations, allowing
organizations to create better software faster.
As organizations implement DevOps on Amazon Web Services (AWS), they need to
understand the security implications. The AWS Shared Responsibility Model makes clear
that AWS secures what’s “on the cloud,” while the customer is responsible for securing
their assets “in the cloud.” When AWS customers go about securing their DevOps
environments, they need to do so in a way that provides robust protection without limiting
This white paper identifies the problems encountered in addressing network security risks through vulnerability management. It describes how automated vulnerability management contributes to compliance with industry standards such as the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) and assists you in proactively identifying security weaknesses before these are exploited.
