Service Providers have unique networking challenges as compared to other environments. Factor, differentiating Service Provider`s network from others, is the requirement for 100% uptime. The network stability is crucial to their customers’ business and is, therefore, intolerant to disruptions or outages, which may damage the company`s reputation and market position, or even affect it irreversibly. Downtime risks can no longer be mitigated by simply over-engineering the network, but rather deploying network optimization solutions, based on the intelligent monitoring and automated response, versus manual network troubleshooting and brute force time spending.
Attacks today incorporate increasingly sophisticated methods of social engineering and client-side software manipulation to exfiltrate data without detection. Some attackers leverage so-called spearphishing to entice employees to give up access information and spread their attacks to other enterprise systems; others use password crackers against compromised applications in order to gain further access rights to the network. The attackers might also set up channels for command and control communications with the compromised systems, as in the case of the Zeus or SpyEye bot infections.
The Dyre family of banking malware is back in the news after researchers recently observed that the malware incorporated tricks to avoid detection in malware sandboxes. Previously, Dyre was most notable for targeting high value bank accounts, including business accounts, and incorporating sophisticated social engineering components to overcome the 2-factor authentication used by most banks.

Scale events — like online sales and digital product launches — present great revenue opportunities, but they also present large risks to your business. Whether you are a retailer preparing for Black Friday and Cyber Monday, or a digital vendor launching a new service, your brand is both at its most visible and its most vulnerable during these scale events. Many more customers visit your site over a short period of time, raising the potential for resource constraints and discovery of software bugs. Information about issues spreads quickly via social media and news outlets. And, your customers typically spend more per transaction, so every lost order has a greater negative impact on your bottom line.
Site reliability engineering (SRE) can help you better prepare for scale events through an iterative cycle of data-driven improvement.
Something odd happened during Selectica’s roll-up strategy. Usually when a technology vendor acquires a number of providers at relatively low valuations, its focus tends to be on financially engineering the various SaaS, maintenance, upsell and other income schemes from the assets. But in Selectica’s case, the acquired became the basis of the company, in a manner in which the sum of the assets became an entirely different equation that it likely even bargained for before getting into the activity in the first place. But sometimes the uncertainty of post-merger integrations can lead to an outcome that benefits all parties involved (including customers) in ways that would be difficult to have imagined going into the process.
Functionality, cost effectiveness and efficiency drive your firm. Apply those standards to sharing large files if you want to beat competitors who use standard, less professional file-sharing tools with clients. Read this e-book to discover how you and your firm can:
Avoid the unreliability and time-consuming limitations of FTP and email. Stop breaking up files and start tracking their status. Increase the speed of transferring proposals, specs and more without sacrificing security.

In an age where your users demand no-fail experience, continuous testing has become a mission critical component for engineering teams of all sizes. However, while this topic was once discussed at lower levels, the conversation has made it all the way to the C-suite. No matter your industry, if your team isn’t thinking about testing at a high level, then there is a chance that you are missing out on revenue due to flawed app functionality, delayed releases and slowed innovation. It is important to understand the business benefits of continuous testing and automation to avoid these outcomes, and make the changes necessary to set your applications up for success.

In today’s era of digital transformation, time-to-market is the new name of the game, and DevOps is changing the way software is built. As developers have taken on a much larger role in the software development lifecycle, including developing secure code, building containers and ensuring quality, security cannot be separated from DevOps and engineering. Unfortunately, traditional software security testing tools have operated in isolation and have forced developers to change the way they work.
Checkmarx, however, has developed a more agile and responsive solution: Checkmarx’ Software Exposure Platform. Taking a holistic, platform-centric approach, the platform builds security in from the beginning, supporting all stages of the software development lifecycle, allowing enterprises to deliver secure software at the speed of DevOps while mitigating their business risk.

There is a significant gap between how manufacturing companies value specific aspects of their project execution and how they judge their performance. Better education in project management methodologies and standalone software tools alone will limit a company’s ability to perform at its highest level. A study by Engineering.com found that a web-based Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solution is the best way for a company to fully achieve its best practices.
This white paper shares how a PLM solution with embedded project management can uniquely provide:
• Full alignment between projects and the product portfolio
• Coordination of a project’s schedule, resources and scope
• Automatic real-time status updates of project tasks
• Mitigation of project risks based upon real-time assessment of product development
Benefit from the unique value provided by PLM systems with embedded project management.
There is a large gap between understanding how important project management is to a successful product launch and how effective a company may be with its actual execution. John Hayes, CEO of Engineering.com, and Jon Gable, former Strategic Planning Director for Dassault Systèmes , team up to bring you a webinar on product development and project management tools.
This webinar covers:
• Research report findings from 140 product development professionals
• Analysis of how product development issues can be addressed
• Web-based project management for product development
Gain insight into the latest thinking on project management for product development and how project management issues can impact business at the highest level.

Many papers on the topic of advanced persistent threats (APTs) begin with ominous references to the changing threat landscape and stories of how highly sophisticated cyber attacks are becoming more prevalent. That can be misleading. The majority of attacks today still use many techniques that have been around for years—social engineering, phishing emails, backdoor exploits and drive-by downloads, to name the biggest ones.
Such attacks are neither advanced nor particularly sophisticated when broken down into their individual components and often rely on the weakest link in any organization—the user. However, the way in which hackers use combinations of techniques and the persistent behavior of the attackers is something that does set APTs apart from other attempts to compromise security.
This paper is designed to give you an overview of the common characteristics of APTs, how they typically work, and what kind of protection is available to help reduce the risk of an attack.

A&D manufacturers and their suppliers now depend more than ever on global supply chains. As they reach across time zones, languages and cultures, supply chains have to work around challenges that build up costs and drag down production schedules. Communication between distributed engineering and production centers can be labored and error-prone. These problems are often compounded by repetitive programming, incomplete simulations, time-intensive production methods, and concern that the shop floor may not be working with current data. Ideally, global companies should be able to design products at any location and produce them at selected sites, with all stakeholders from design to the shop floor working concurrently from a single unique global data source.
Understand how manufacturing companies can deliver machined parts faster and increase revenue by reducing costs – despite operating globally across time zones and cultures.
This spotlight report examines:
• How Manufacturing Operations Management (MOM) or Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) are key enablers of data management and Digital Transformation. Companies can combine many other opportunities with manufacturing operations in a digital journey.
• Product lifecycle management (PLM) as a high-value discipline to pair with MOM in discrete manufacturing, and the value of digital continuity across engineering, manufacturing operations, and supply chain.
• A robust integration of MOM and PLM technologies and the advent of the Digital Twin (a virtual copy of the product and how it's made) to demonstrate maturity in Smart Manufacturing and the ability to make smart products in smart factories.
