Security

IT Security is a field of computer science concerned with the control of risks related to computer use. The means traditionally taken to realize this objective is to attempt to create a secure computing platform, designed so that agents (users or programs) can only perform actions that have been allowed. This involves specifying and implementing a security policy. The actions in question can be reduced to operations of access, modification and deletion.

Today’s consumers expect instant access to communications services whether they’re in the office, at home, or on the road. With data speeds increasing and international roaming costs decreasing, data usage is rapidly growing. Telecommunications Service Providers (TSPs) are under pressure to deliver more services to more people and approach 100% uptime all while lowering prices to consumers. Traditional relational databases can’t meet the requirements for massive scalability, availability, and fault tolerance that the rapid growth in data usage and rise of big data demands. Read this solution brief to learn how Riak excels at these. Riak is a distributed NoSQL database optimized for big data. Riak meets many of the challenges you may be facing with your own service operations systems.

The information explosion, the proliferation of endpoint devices, growing user volumes and new computing models like cloud, social business and big data have created new vulnerabilities. Data security is a moving target—as data grows, more sophisticated threats emerge; the number of regulations increase; and changing economic times make it difficult to secure and protect data. Because data is a critical component of daily business operations, it is essential to ensure privacy and protect data no matter where it resides. Different types of information have different protection requirements; therefore, organizations must take a holistic and systematic approach to safeguarding information.

Driven by demands to unify and extend protection across a broad spectrum of threats, EMA sees in this trend the rise of Converged Network Security (CNS) systems that integrate a wide range of capabilities and break down silos in network defense more than ever before. Scott Crawford, Managing Research Director, Security and Risk Management at EMA Research highlights specific examples of the ways in which these converged security systems put today’s more advanced capabilities to work in practical application. The IBM Security Network Protection XGS 5000 is profiled as an example of this trend, delivering not only intelligence driven, application aware defense against a variety of threats, but also the extensibility required to equip today’s organizations to confront whatever may come tomorrow.

Big data analytics offer organizations an unprecedented opportunity to derive new business insights and drive smarter decisions. The outcome of any big data analytics project, however, is only as good as the quality of the data being used. Although organizations may have their structured data under fairly good control, this is often not the case with the unstructured content that accounts for the vast majority of enterprise information. Good information governance is essential to the success of big data analytics projects. Good information governance also pays big dividends by reducing the costs and risks associated with the management of unstructured information. This paper explores the link between good information governance and the outcomes of big data analytics projects and takes a look at IBM's StoredIQ solution.

Trust and consumer confidence is the foundation upon which the Internet has been built. Leading commerce and financial services companies worldwide have long used Secure Socket Layer and Transport Layer Security (SSL/TLS) technologies to secure customer communications and transactions. But with the rise of Web 2.0 and social networking, people are spending more time online and logged in, and they are communicating much more than just their credit card numbers. Unfortunately, Web security practices have not always kept pace with these changes. Many organizations use the SSL/TLS protocol to encrypt the authentication process when users log in to a website, but do not encrypt subsequent pages during the user’s session. This practice is risky because it leaves website visitors vulnerable to malicious online attacks, and can result in millions of users being unknowingly exposed to threats simply by visiting a trusted website. This white paper discusses the imperative need for Always On S

The discovery of the Heartbleed bug in April, 2014 exposed a serious vulnerability in OpenSSL, an open-source cryptographic library often used with applications and web servers like Apache and Nginx. This latest high profile, targeted attack allowed infiltrators access to the memory of web servers running vulnerable versions of the library. Heartbleed quickly compromised the privacy for communications applications on the Web such as e-commerce, banking, email, and instant messaging, and opened the door to the interception of user information, passwords, and identities. While the world now knows of the widespread havoc Heartbleed has caused to both businesses and individuals, it begs the question, “What happens when the next Heartbleed (or worse) comes along, and what can an organization do to weather yet another chapter in an all-too-familiar string of debilitating attacks?

Corporate computers and information and communications systems (collectively, “electronic resources”) remain the workhorse for most businesses, even as alternatives, such as third-party text messaging services, external social media, and cloud computing, flourish. Employees rely on corporate electronic resources for e-mail, calendaring, business contacts, Internet access, document creation and storage, and a multitude of other business applications. Consequently, for employers, it is critical to establish and maintain their right to inspect all information stored on, and to monitor all communications transmitted by, corporate electronic resources. The corporate acceptable use policy is the linchpin of that effort. The ten tips below are intended to aid employers who either want to implement an acceptable use policy for the first time, or who need to update their policy.

Bit9’s approach to compliance is simple. Organizations should include relevant stakeholders in building Compliance Control Policies to meet regulatory standards while supporting business goals. Control Policies dictate which assets are covered by each Standard and what actions users can execute for each asset. By grouping similar classes of assets and users, policies can be logical to users, enforcement is automatic and audits are simplified.
