Imagine if you could see deep into the future. And way back into the past, both at the same time. Imagine having visibility of everything that had ever happened and everything that was ever going to happen, everywhere, all at once.
And then imagine processing power strong enough to make sense of all this data in every language and in every dimension. Unless you’ve achieved that digital data nirvana (and you haven’t told the rest of us), you’re going to have some unknowns in your world.
In the world of security, unknown threats exist outside the enterprise in the form of malicious actors, state-sponsored attacks and malware that moves fast and destroys everything it touches. The unknown exists inside the enterprise in the form of insider threat from rogue employees or careless contractors – which was deemed by 24% of our survey respondents to pose the most serious risk to their organizations. The unknown exists in the form of new devices, new cloud applications, and new data. The unk

It is well recognized that network transformations, such as SD-WAN, WiFi, and multi-cloud, edge computing among other trends, are creating a host of new challenges and opportunities for network operations.

Ransomware has taken the world by storm. CryptoWall extorted an estimated $18 million, and WannaCry locked up more than 230,000 computers across the globe in 2017. Companies of all sizes are sitting up and taking notice. Even brands with a strong security investment have fallen victim. We’ve seen ransomware cripple businesses: nearly 19% of businesses stop operations immediately after discovering a ransomware attack.1 Hospital emergency rooms forced to turn people away; global shipping logistics experience massive disruption; and even a summer blockbuster movie held up for ransom. The FBI estimates ransomware is now a billion-dollar business.
Ransomware has been around for a while, and it has spiked in recent years. It secured 5th place as the most common variety of malware in 2017, up from 22nd place in 2014.2 Originally ransomware targeted individuals and was considered a consumer nuisance. It has now become a business menace.

In the early years of software development, you would often design it, build it, and
only then think about how to secure it.
This was arguably fine in the days of monolithic applications and closed networks,
when good perimeter-based protection and effective identity and access management
would get you a long way towards minimising the risk. In today’s highly connected,
API-driven application environments, however, any given software component or
service can be invoked and potentially abused in so many different ways. Add to this
the increasing pace of change through iterative ‘DevOps-style’ delivery and ever-faster
release cycles, and many understandably assert that security management and
assurance nowadays needs to be an ongoing and embedded part of the development
and delivery process.

Die Harvard Business Review befragte 385 Leser von Unternehmen mit über 500 Mitarbeitern, welchen Planungsherausforderungen sie gegenüberstehen und welche Lösungen sie verwenden.
Unternehmen müssen mit den gegenwärtigen, noch nie da gewesenen Veränderungen Schritt halten. Während einige schnell reagieren, tun sich andere schwer damit. Was unterscheidet die Gewinner von den Verlierern?
Die Harvard Business Review befragte 385 Leser von Unternehmen mit über 500 Mitarbeitern, welchen Planungsherausforderungen sie gegenüberstehen und welche Lösungen sie verwenden. Sie fanden heraus, dass neun von zehn eine Tabellenkalkulation zur Planung verwenden, aber nur 22 % damit zufrieden sind. Fazit: „Eine Planung, die allein auf einer Tabellenkalkulation basiert, … kann mit dem Umfang und Tempo der heutigen Geschäftswelt nicht mehr mithalten.“
Glücklicherweise gibt es eine bessere Möglichkeit.

For a company that sells wool products, the dog days of summer

“In June and July, having Bluecore send people emails based on
what they browsed is especially helpful because we don’t have as
many messages or new products going out. So as often as people
come to our site is as often as they’ll get emails, and those emails are
guaranteed to be relevant to them. If the onus was on blast emails,
then we’d be showing people products that are not necessarily

The stadium had been using two-way radios
to support daily operations for more than
a decade — an analog-based system that
was nearing end of life. The radios and the
repeaters were starting to fail, creating
communications gaps for employees. Being
fully focused on the task at hand became
challenging for employees that were
concerned about the effectiveness of their
radios on which they readily relied on for
collaborating with other team members and
addressing issues swiftly. The original system
treated them well for a long time, but it came
time to retire the equipment and make the
move to digital.
Rosen Hotels & Resorts was looking to improve its two-way radio
communications. The organization had an aging analog radio system to support
its existing properties, with the main antenna located at its tallest building, the
24-story Rosen Centre Hotel. However, with the opening of a new property, Rosen
Shingle Creek, the lack of wide area coverage became an immediate concern.
Employees situated across departments such as catering, engineering and
security, and subpar radio connections hindered collaboration and a real-time flow

What does it look like when all workers at your manufacturing facility can communicate and coordinate
seamlessly from any location, device or network? The time is NOW to imagine a world where devices, networks, and
locations don’t matter. A world where workers from production lines, to plant managers, engineers, security and beyond can
communicate effortlessly and instantly, both on and offsite.
A Unified Team Communications solution from Motorola Solutions is what’s NEXT for your facility to make this all possible.
This guide was created to help you experience how each and every staff member can work smarter, safer, and minimize
unwanted downtime when equipped with intelligence driven communications solutions.
See how Unified Team Communications powers the collaboration between all these workers to
create the next-generation in smart connected manufacturing:
When it comes to worker safety, efficiency and production, nothing is
faster than right now. Organizations across various energy segments —
oil, gas, petrochemical, electric utilities, water utilities and mining — are
currently juggling a mix of communications solution devices and are
hindered by gaps in coverage, poor battery life and fragile equipment
that cannot withstand harsh environmental conditions. The power of
now puts instant communications at your workers’ fingertips — because
when communication slows, operation slows.
Citizens rely on their homes being heated in the winter, clean running
water and lights that turn on when they flip the switch. Meeting these
expectations requires reliable, clear voice and data communications for
energy workers day-in and day-out. So workers can communicate safely
in hazardous environments. So precious resources are not wasted and
efficient operations are maintained. So energy companies can continue
to exceed expectations.

A range of application security tools was developed to support the efforts to secure the enterprise from the threat posed by insecure applications. But in the ever-changing landscape of application security, how does an organization choose the right set of tools to mitigate the risks their applications pose to their environment? Equally important, how, when, and by whom are these tools used most effectively?
Today, when you make decisions about information technology (IT) security priorities, you must often strike a careful balance between business risk, impact, and likelihood of incidents, and the costs of prevention or cleanup. Historically, the most well-understood variable in this equation was the methods that hackers used to disrupt or invade the system.

The media and entertainment industry
was valued at $1.81 trillion in 2016,
and is expected to reach $2.14 trillion
by 2020. Activities within this industry
have grown over the last couple of years,
and now range from creating content for
movies, TV and games, to delivering that
content. This is increasingly performed
via on-demand data networks rather
than traditional over-the-air broadcasting,
watched over high resolution displays that
enhance the overall viewing experience
of the user, and even the latter is
being delivered from the same storage
repositories. Media production is also
now prevalent in areas not traditionally
associated with this activity, such as
training, museums, and education.
