5 Steps to Achieve Risk-Based Application Security Management

Software applications support the most sensitive and strategically important business processes of most enterprises. Yet application security is one of the most neglected fields of cybersecurity.

IT and business management typically have no visibility into the overall state of application security. Activities for assessing, prioritizing and remediating application vulnerabilities are ad hoc, fragmented and carried out at low levels in the IT security organization. Quality assurance and software development groups lack the knowledge and incentives to address critical vulnerabilities early in application development lifecycles, where testing and fixing vulnerabilities are most cost-effective.

5 Tips to Simplify Your Data Protection

In this digital world, there is an ever-increasing amount of data for you to manage — and that growth will only continue to accelerate. IDC’s Digital Universe study states that enterprise data doubles every eighteen months. If this notion causes your chest to tighten or your stomach to get queasy, there is a good chance you are responsible for managing that data.

Many small- to medium-sized businesses (SMBs) are simultaneously running physical, virtual and cloud environments. With the widespread use of cloud technologies in recent years, companies began adopting a hybrid approach. The IDC Cloudview 2016 Survey revealed 68 percent of respondents use, or plan to use, a hybrid IT infrastructure. This is a seven percentage point increase over 2014 IDC Disaster Recovery Survey stating 61 percent were using virtual technologies. The race to employ these technologies to keep ahead of the data, however, created some potholes in the road.
