This Frost & Sullivan whitepaper explores some of the common fears and challenges related to security and compliance, and how a skilled managed service provider can help you overcome them as you deploy sensitive, business-critical workloads in the cloud.
This Forrester research looks at how 7 full-stack public cloud development platform providers perform against a 31-criteria evaluation. The most important vendors — Alibaba, AWS, CenturyLink, Google, IBM, Microsoft, and Oracle — were researched, assessed, and scored.

A multi-cloud world is quickly becoming the new normal for many enterprises. But embarking on a cloud journey and managing cloud-based services across multiple providers can seem overwhelming.
Even the term multi-cloud can be confusing. Multi-cloud is not the same as hybrid cloud. The technical definition of hybrid cloud is an environment that includes traditional data centers with physical servers, private cloud with virtualized servers as well as public cloud provisioned by service providers. Quite often, multi-cloud simply means that an organization uses multiple public clouds from many vendors to deliver its IT services. In other words, organizations can have a multi-cloud without having a hybrid cloud, or they can have a multi-cloud as part of a hybrid cloud.
Take a look at the IT ecosystem of any company today and there’s a good chance you’ll find it includes offerings from several cloud services providers. That’s certainly the case at mid- to large-sized companies with at least 500 employees, according to a recent survey conducted by IDG Research.
The survey of 100 senior IT professionals found that 59% are already multi-cloud adopters — that is, using computing and storage services from two or more cloud providers. Another 31% of respondents say they plan to become multi-cloud organizations in the coming 12-24 months, with only 10% still in the “consideration” phase.
Across enterprises of all kinds, data is multiplying rapidly in both quantity and variety. Across multi-cloud environments, new sources are exponentially increasing the growing stream of information, including the Internet of Things, social media, mobile devices, virtual reality implementations and optical tracking.
The enterprise data warehouse (EDW) has been at the cornerstone of enterprise data strategies for over 20 years. EDW systems have traditionally been built on relatively costly hardware infrastructures. But ever-growing data volume and increasingly complex processing have raised the cost of EDW software and hardware licenses while impacting the performance needed for analytic insights. Organizations can now use EDW offloading and optimization techniques to reduce costs of storing, processing and analyzing large volumes of data.
Getting data governance right is critical to your business success. That means ensuring your data is clean, of excellent quality, and of verifiable lineage. Such governance principles can be applied in Hadoop-like environments. Hadoop is designed to store, process and analyze large volumes of data at significantly lower cost than a data warehouse. But to get the return on investment, you must infuse data governance processes as part of offloading.
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) framework seeks to create a
harmonized data protection framework across the European Union, and aims
to give back EU citizens control of their personal data by imposing stricter
requirements for those hosting and processing this data, anywhere in the
IBM is committed to putting data responsibility first and providing solutions
that are secure to the core for all customers. As such, IBM Cloud has fully
adopted the EU Data Protection Code of Conduct for Cloud Service providers
– meaning we agree to meet the entirety of its stringent requirements.
The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has arrived. Every company doing business with
European customers — regardless of location — must make considerable governance, people, process,
and technology changes to comply with the new rules. While companies have made progress, more work
remains. To succeed, they must tackle key challenges, including data identification, mapping, and access
management. Despite the work ahead, forward-looking businesses understand GDPR is an opportunity.
This is a transformation for a data-savvy world, with the potential to yield enhanced customer and
business benefits. Investment in solutions with data privacy, security, and compliance offerings that can
protect data no matter where it’s stored — on-premises and in the cloud — can ease companies along
their readiness journeys and help them achieve and sustain compliance from May 25, 2018, and onward
Trust can be viewed as a key factor amongst clients and service providers
working together towards preparing for readiness with the EU General
Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). These stringent regulations come into
force in May 2018 to ensure that personal data is processed adhering to strict
privacy and security requirements.
After moving traditional workloads to public cloud, most customers realize they must replace many of them with cloud-native alternatives to reap the full benefits. Technology product management leaders must deliver cloud-native offerings now to capture business opportunities and avoid irrelevancy.
Organizations globally realize that working only to prevent and detect cyberattacks will not protect them against cyber security threats. That is why IBM Resilient® was developed: to arm security teams with a platform for managing, coordinating, and streamlining incident response (IR) processes.
IBM Security has had the privilege of working with organizations of all sizes and across all industries as they implement Resilient solutions to develop more sophisticated and robust incident response functions. These organizations build IR processes that are consistent, repeatable, and measurable, rather than ad hoc. They make communication, coordination, and collaboration an organization-wide priority. They leverage technology that empowers the response team to do their job faster and more accurately
The Ponemon Institute and IBM Resilient are pleased to release the findings of the third annual study on the importance of cyber resilience for a strong security posture. The key takeaway from this year’s research is that organizations globally continue to struggle with responding to cybersecurity incidents. Lack of formal incident response plans and insufficient budgets were reported as the main causes of this challenge.
The rise of the cloud and mobile computing has rapidly changed the nature of enterprise cybersecurity. The old paradigm, where all work was done behind a company firewall, has been breaking down.
Employees work not just at the office, but also on the road and at home, on mobile devices and on their own personal computers. They’re no longer using a limited stack of enterprise applications. Instead, they increasingly require access to a wide variety of apps, cloud services, and new communication platforms.
IT endpoint management used to be an easier game: Managers deployed user systems with custom images when employees were hired, and employees returned them on their last day at work. Even during deployment, users had minimal abilities to impact systems and devices that were centrally managed. Servers resided in physical data centers where they could be identified and accessed. Those were the days!
Wherever an organization is in the world today, it relies on IT in its quest to drive revenues, improve profit margins, and service customers. Yet most small- to mid-sized businesses (SMBs) and government agencies select IT infrastructure solutions that drive higher costs and limit the business' ability to respond to changes in the marketplace. This is driven by perceptions that many IT executives running Linux and open source applications have regarding server platforms. Specifically, they erroneously believe that their best option is to execute the applications either on standalone or virtualized on x86 servers. RFG finds that there are 10 compelling reasons why an IBM LinuxONE solution is superior to an x86 one, including the fact that LinuxONE is a better, more economical choice.
Since data encryption is a core piece of any security strategy, start by talking with your CIO. This guide is designed to help you determine the right questions to ask your CIO to become better informed about your bank’s cybersecurity position.
