Protecting Hyperscale Data Centers From Ransomware and Volumetric DDoS Attacks

Thumb original sb protecting hyperscale data centers from ransomware

Enterprises are adopting hybrid IT, Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), and 5G to gain operational agility. These tools help them build composable and scalable architectures that interconnect distributed branches, campuses, on-premises data centers, and multi-clouds into a unified network. And yet, in the midst of this change, the enterprise on-premises data center remains an essential component of most networks. Its role is vital because it protects applications, data, and workloads that can’t be moved to the cloud but that still need to be consumed by employees, customers, and partners.

However, the data center infrastructure is also becoming more distributed, greatly expanding its attack surface. Without a holistic security strategy that can seamlessly span distributed environments, blind spots emerge. Point security products deployed in different parts of the network create security gaps that reduce visibility and increase the potential for breaches and attacks. The resulting disjointed security is unable to provide a holistic view of the attack surface or effectively stop and contain increasingly sophisticated attacks, such as ransomware and distributed denial of service (DDoS).

UK Public Sector Organisations Trim Security Costs Through Technology Consolidation

In times of austerity it is the public sector that feels the impact of initial expectations to save money and become more efficient. Private sector organisations need to be driven by necessity before they act and pursue efficiencies, whereas the decision is made for the public sector at a governmental level and usually at an early stage. As such, public sector organisations like councils often find themselves thrust into the role of pathfinders in order to make efficiencies and cost savings.

IT is an area where many efficiencies and cost sav ...

Secure SD-WAN for Local Authorities

Local Authorities (LAs) usually consist of geographically dispersed sites across a town or region, where users have independent connections to each site and access to a range of applications (i.e. both local and in the cloud) that require a consistent quality of service in order to connect to resources, share data across the different sites and connect back to the main office buildings. As each of these sites requires substantial bandwidth, traditional SD-WAN simply cannot keep up with expanding cloud-based performance needs across an extended ...

Leading SaaS Data Security, Raising the Bar for Data Protection in the Cloud Era

Information security has never been more important—or challenging—than it is today. There are growing threats from external actors and insiders, new systems and software are being deployed faster and more frequently than ever before, the zero-trust model is leading to widespread changes in visibility and access control, and economic pressures demand that costs be reduced or avoided altogether.

We believe in transparency, because it enables prospective buyers and technical evaluators to make informed decisions. Accordingly, we have prepared t ...

Innovation Insight: Backup for SaaS Applications

Multiple data loss scenarios and limited recovery options can lead to data loss in software-as-a-service applications; however, backup for SaaS applications is rare and lacks standards. Hence, I&O leaders must understand the challenges and solutions related to recovery of SaaS application data.

Key Findings
Third-party support for backing up data in software as a service applications will remain rare, due to a complete lack of standards for third-party vendors.
SaaS customers can’t assume that the SaaS vendor is invulnerable to attac ...
