Cost savings, storage, ease of updates. The allure of the cloud is hard to ignore, with some reports citing over 90% of organizations using cloud services in some manner. But all the benefits of the cloud disappear if you can't keep your data and users safe. In a perimeter-less world, it's identity that becomes the heart of security. Join us to discover why modern security starts with identity first and how identity can help overcome cloud frustrations.
As the use of cloud solutions in government increases, both business and IT leaders are recognizing that the safety and success of their business depend on finding ways to take full advantage of cloud innovation while ensuring consistent service levels, data management and privacy, and user experiences. Hybrid IT management includes aligning the organization around service levels, cost control, security, and IT-enabled innovation.
Despite momentous benefits, cloud computing has its own set of challenges that must be addressed. The primary concern that many enterprises and end users have is related to security, especially data protection and privacy and loss of control. This article discusses the several challenges associated with security for cloud-based video conferencing and how organizations can remove these barriers by adopting solutions that implement security as a key tenet.

In the wake of data hacks and privacy concerns, enterprises are working extra hard to make sure they secure customer data from external threats. But what about securing data internally? Organizations unknowingly leave a big security hole in their own systems when they fail to have structured internal processes to handle access requests for employees, which could have disastrous implications for data security.
A leading US bank sought to move its internal applications to a secure system for a standard and consistent access rights experience. See how Infosys helped and the five key takeaways from the project.

Data security is a top concern these days. In a world of privacy regulation, intellectual property theft, and cybercrime, ensuring data security and protecting sensitive enterprise data is crucial.
Only a data masking solution can secure vital data and enable outsourcing, third-party analysis, and cloud deployments. But more often than not, masking projects fail. Some of the best data masking tools bottleneck processes and once masked, data is hard to move and manage across the application development lifecycle.
This infographic includes results from a 2015 survey conducted exclusively for CBS Interactive and illustrates:
• The top-ranked security threats of 2014
• The percentage of companies adopting mobile security technology
• The most popular data protection methods
• What to look for in a comprehensive data protection solution
How are you balancing strong security and the customer experience? The European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) requirement is an opportunity to properly balance privacy and the user experience. Those who embrace it will distinguish themselves as a trustworthy and respectful custodian of their users’ data. Personal data plays an increasingly important part in providing the kind of appealing experience that brings users back time and time again. But, there’s a balance to be struck. Strong security is the best tool available for navigating the dichotomy between an appealing user experience and the risk posed by data breach; it allows the collection and management of personal data in line with the user’s expectations, and without jeopardizing the trust that is so important between them and you.
The rampant rise in cyberattacks and the growing concerns and regulations over data privacy are compelling the increased use of SSL/TLS. But managing even more SSL/TLS to protect data is challenging. See how you can safely expand and rely on SSL/TLS to achieve your data security and privacy goals.
My name is Jonathan McCaffrey and I work on the infrastructure team here at Riot. This is the first post in a series where we’ll go deep on how we deploy and operate backend features around the globe. Before we dive into the technical details, it’s important to understand how Rioters think about feature development. Player value is paramount at Riot, and development teams often work directly with the player community to inform features and improvements. In order to provide the best possible player experience, we need to move fast and maintain the ability to rapidly change plans based upon feedback. The infrastructure team’s mission is to pave the way for our developers to do just that - the more we empower Riot teams, the faster features can be shipped to players to enjoy.
Hey all, this is David Press and Doug Lardo, two engineers working on improving the data center networking that enables online services at Riot. This article is the third part in a series on exactly that topic, which begins with an overview from Jonathan of a platform we called rCluster. This time we’ll be discussing our approach to Software Defined Networking (SDN), how we integrate SDN with Docker, and the new infrastructure paradigms that this combination has unlocked for us. If you’re curious about how SDN can transform infrastructure, how to empower developers to obtain and secure networking resources via an API, or how to get out of purchasing larger and larger specialized networking appliances, this article is for you.
The US healthcare industry has historically lagged behind others in the maturity of security capabilities, only recently catching up on data security and privacy in response to HIPAA. But there is a wide range of other mounting risks unique to healthcare that S&R pros in healthcare can’t ignore — greater regulatory pressure, increasing targeted attacks, the frightening uncertainty of IoT security, and global economic pressures. This report outlines the most important security capabilities for security leaders in this sector to implement in the face of these challenges.

Reasonable, common-sense security standards are becoming law in many regions of the world. In Europe, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), enacted in April 2016, will become fully applicable on May 25, 2018. GDPR will bring the European Union (EU) under one comprehensive and harmonised legal system for data protection and privacy. The monetary penalties and reputational damage of noncompliance with GDPR are substantial – the maximum fines are the greater of 20 million euros or 4% of the company’s worldwide revenue.
