Organizations still struggle with communication between data owners and those responsible for administering DLP systems, leading to technology-driven — rather than business-driven — implementations.
Many clients who deploy enterprise DLP systems struggle to get out of the initial phases of discovering and monitoring data flows, never realizing the potential benefits of deeper data analytics or applying appropriate data protections.
DLP as a technology has a reputation of being a high-maintenance control — incomplete deployments are common, tuning is a never-ending process, lack of organization buy-in is low, and calculations of ROI are complex.

The University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB) is a public research university and one of the 10 campuses of the University of California system. Its secondary storage was a combination of multiple point solutions. The UI/setup and maintenance was complex. Maintaining multiple licensing and maintenance agreements negatively impacted the administrative cost. The skyrocketing cost for additional backup capacity limited the team’s ability to expand their backup protection to many critical systems. With Cohesity's unified hyperconverged secondary storage platform, the IT team provided a single solution for all 13 departments to consolidate their backups on one platform, and scale-out as required. Read the case study and get details on how UCSB consolidated everything from backup to recovery, analytics to
monitoring and alerting.
This eBook offers a practical hands-on guide to “Day One” challenges of deploying, managing and monitoring PostgreSQL.
With the ongoing shift towards open-source database solutions, it’s no surprise that PostgreSQL is the fastest growing database. While it’s tempting to simply compare the licensing costs of proprietary systems against that of open source, it is both a misleading and incorrect approach when evaluating the potential for return on investment of a database technology migration.
An effective monitoring and logging strategy is critical for maintaining the reliability, availability, and performance of database environments.
The second section of this eBook provides a detailed analysis of all aspects of monitoring and logging PostgreSQL:
? Monitoring KPIs
? Metrics and stats
? Monitoring tools
? Passive monitoring versus active notifications

The thought of continuous monitoring is an ancient concept. Many federal agencies are required to continuously monitor their systems. Read on to learn what continuous monitoring is and how organizations can devise a solution that works.
Large organizations can no longer rely on preventive security systems, point security tools, manual processes, and hardened configurations to protect them from targeted attacks and advanced malware.
Henceforth, security management must be based upon continuous monitoring and data analysis for up-to-the-minute situational awareness and rapid data-driven security decisions. This means that large organizations have entered the era of data security analytics.

By standardizing on security assessment, authorization, and continuous monitoring for cloud products and services, this program delivers costs savings, accelerated adoption, and increased confidence in security to U.S. government agencies that are adopting cloud technologies.
Businesses can gain greater value from their BI investment by improving the way in which data flows to the BI system are managed. Many problems result when the ETL process is handled by a patchwork of scripting, custom coding, and various built-in schedulers that are part of existing ETL solutions, because these systems do not provide end-to-end execution, monitoring, and control of the ETL process.

Many IT Managers will be familiar with the ‘disk or die’ ultimatums that a disgruntled system can issue. If the system demands feeding and threatens to shut down if it doesn’t get more disk to chew, it’s time to address the issue of disk once and for all. The expense of using disk to accommodate problems in the hope of buying extra investigation time is a quick fix that few organizations can sustain.
