No business is immune to the threat of IT downtime caused by natural and manmade disasters. Natural disasters—such as earthquakes, tsunamis, hurricanes, fires, and floods—can happen with little to no advanced warning. But the bigger risk is often human-induced events—from simple IT configuration errors to significant data center problems. If you lack a rock-solid disaster recovery (DR) plan, any of these unpredictable events—natural or manmade—could bring your business and its revenue streams to a halt. Yet many organizations are not well prepared for the unknown. The randomness of such events lulls people into a sense of false security—“That’s not likely to happen here.” While you can hope to avoid events that threaten the continuity of your business, the reality remains unchanged: Disasters happen—so you need to prepare for them. Are you prepared? Please download this eBook to find out!

If your company stores or processes credit card information, you must be able to demonstrate compliance with the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standards (DSS). These standards include requirements for security management, policies, procedures, network architecture, design, and other critical protective measures. They also include one very prescriptive requirement:  Section 6.6 mandates that organizations secure all Web applications by conducting a code review or installing an application layer firewall. Companies have had a very difficult time passing the other parts of Section 6 and they have experienced a rising number of data breaches. Unless companies take 6.6 seriously, PCI compliance failure rates, and data breaches, will continue to grow.  Read this whitepaper to gain an overview of best practices to pass Section 6.6 and an understanding of the technology available to you.

It wasn’t long ago that being on the cutting edge of business meant having a website where customers could purchase your products, but that quickly changed. Soon, it wasn’t enough just to have an e-commerce presence; you had to offer an interactive and engaging customer experience (see Web 2.0). Now the standard has shifted once again; in order to truly compete in the modern economy, your business needs to have a mobile storefront on smart phones and tablets. Without this mobile presence, you’ll lose business to competitors who have them. With this new challenge comes high risk as well as great reward. With mobility, the client side of your applications is more important than ever. Instead of accessing your website from the safe confines of work or home, your customers can now perform sensitive transactions anywhere. As a result, mobile applications, and the devices and data they interact with, can now be more easily attacked.

Traditional project management techniques are not working as well as expected. According to research, an average organization has at least $74 million USD (yearly) in at-risk projects. And, even when projects are executed successfully, all too often they still fail to deliver business benefits. So, how do you get started? How do you prioritize which issues to address first? What are the risks and potential rewards? What can you do yourself and where can you need help? This paper helps you answer those questions. It provides important insights into the root causes of project failures and misalignment with business unit expectations, along with possible solutions. It illustrates the path to optimized project and portfolio management from four different starting points, and provides step-by-step advice to help you reach new milestones quickly. It is intended to help you make the transition from managing IT projects to managing business outcomes.

Data centers are large, important investments that, when properly designed, built, and operated, are an integral part of the business strategy driving the success of any enterprise. Yet the central focus of organizations is often the acquisition and deployment of the IT architecture equipment and systems with little thought given to the structure and space in which it is to be housed, serviced, and maintained. This invariably leads to facility infrastructure problems such as thermal “hot spots”, lack of UPS (uninterruptible power supply) rack power, lack of redundancy, system overloading and other issues that threaten or prevent the realization of the return on the investment in the IT systems.

To accommodate increasingly dense technology environments, increasingly critical business applications, and increasingly stringent service level demands, data centers are typically engineered to deliver the highest-affordable availability levels facility-wide. Within this monolithic design approach, the same levels of mechanical, electrical, and IT infrastructure are installed to support systems and applications regardless of their criticality or business risk if unplanned downtime occurs. Typically, high redundancy designs are deployed in order to provide for all eventualities. The result, in many instances, is to unnecessarily drive up both upfront construction or retro-fitting costs and ongoing operating expenses.

Today, companies have more at risk than ever before. To stay in business, they must evolve their traditional business continuity programs to include continuous enhancements. They must also provide continuous service and support to their customers, suppliers, stockholders and stakeholders. The best approach requires a detailed analysis of both business and technical requirements, an understanding of available options, and a deep inspection of the many variables that will support their ultimate strategy.
