What if defenders could see the future? If they knew an attack was coming, they could stop it, or at least mitigate its impact and help ensure what they need to protect most is safe. The fact is, defenders
can see what’s on the horizon.
Many clues are out there—and obvious.
The Cisco 2018 Annual Cybersecurity Report presents our latest security industry advances designed to help organizations and
users defend against attacks. We also look at the techniques and strategies that adversaries use to break through those defenses
and evade detection.
The report also highlights major findings from the Cisco 2018 Security Capabilities Benchmark Study, which examines the security posture of enterprises and their perceptions of their preparedness to defend against attacks.
This TDWI Checklist Report presents requirements for analytic DBMSs with a focus on their use with big data. Along the way, the report also defines the many techniques and tool types involved. The requirements checklist and definitions can assist users who are currently evaluating analytic databases and/or developing strategies for big data analytics.
New data sources are fueling innovation while stretching the limitations of traditional data management strategies and structures. Data warehouses are giving way to purpose built platforms more capable of meeting the real-time needs of a more demanding end user and the opportunities presented by Big Data. Significant strategy shifts are under way to transform traditional data ecosystems by creating a unified view of the data terrain necessary to support Big Data and real-time needs of innovative enterprises companies.
In this report, we'll look at some of the top pressures that organizations are facing when it comes to optimizing their infrastructure for modern services and workloads, analyze the strategies taken by successful businesses and offer key recommendations for those organizations looking to become leaders in high performing IT infrastructures.
Today’s leading-edge organizations differentiate themselves through analytics to further their competitive advantage by extracting value from all their data sources. Other companies are looking to become data-driven through the modernization of their data management deployments. These strategies do include challenges, such as the management of large growing volumes of data. Today’s digital world is already creating data at an explosive rate, and the next wave is on the horizon, driven by the emergence of IoT data sources. The physical data warehouses of the past were great for collecting data from across the enterprise for analysis, but the storage and compute resources needed to support them are not able to keep pace with the explosive growth. In addition, the manual cumbersome task of patch, update, upgrade poses risks to data due to human errors. To reduce risks, costs, complexity, and time to value, many organizations are taking their data warehouses to the cloud. Whether hosted lo
