iPaaS Grid Report

Integration platforms as a service (iPaaS) provide a centralized console to manage, govern, and integrate cloud-based applications. These tools work by connecting cloud applications and services, and controlling integration flows. They can speed up product development by integrating existing tools, and increase data volume by utilizing external sources. Companies use these tools to scale performance needs, add product functionality, and structure application integrations. Features or data can be added or removed quickly, reducing failover, downtime, and development time. There is some relationship between iPaaS and ESB software, but iPaaS is typically used for customer-facing applications, while ESB is used for internal data transfers and updates.

Central Role of Messaging Middleware in Cloud and Digital Transformation Initiatives

Highly decentralized computing is the new normal for most organizations, and digital transformation (DX) initiatives are changing application architectures to event driven to support real-time and near-real-time response cycles. In this environment, enterprises are increasingly turning to messaging middleware to meet the combined requirements of complexity, speed, reliability, and security to connect the digital world of applications and data.

API for Dummies Handbook (Third Edition)

The book is defining the modern APIs as flexible ways of projecting essential capabilities to an audience outside of owner team. When done right, APIs enable enterprises to innovate faster and reach new audiences. That is the value of APIs, and the author is trying to find the APIs basic nature, and what key questions should be asked when starting an API journey.

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.

Ponemon Institute’s 2017 State of Mobile & IoT Application Security Study

Ponemon Institute is pleased to present the findings of the 2017 Study on Mobile and Internet of Things Application Security sponsored by IBM and Arxan Technologies. The purpose of this research is to understand how companies are reducing the risk of mobile apps and Internet of Things (IoT) in the workplace. The risks created by mobile apps have been well researched and documented. This study reveals how companies are unprepared for risks created by vulnerabilities in IoT apps.

Elevate your Game: Take Data Security to the Next Level

Five benefits of supercharging your data security and compliance efforts with a security-specific big data lake

This paper describes the roadblocks that organizations may face as they seek to take their data security and compliance efforts to the next level while juggling multiple priorities, including:

  • The administrative demands imposed by the management of huge volumes of data.
  • The need to retain those volumes of data over longer time horizons.
  • The need to maintain or improve performance/speed of reporting.
  • The need to provide direct access to data (“free” the data) to users with many different roles and responsibilities.
  • The need to enrich audit data with other types of related security and compliance data while also performing complex analytics on this data to reveal new risks and/or insights.

The pages that follow will explore how organizations can take steps to address the hurdles above, and in doing so, reach new levels of efficiency and sophistication in data security and compliance management.

5 Epic Fails in Data Security: Common Data Security Pitfalls and How to Avoid Them

Data security is on everyone’s mind these days, and for good reason. Although the number of data breaches in the first half of 2017 was about the same as the first halves of 2015 and 2016, the number of records stolen between January 1 and June 30, 2017 has exceeded all of 2016. And that’s not counting one of largest security breaches of all time, announced in September. Many factors are contributing to the increase in successful attacks – the erosion of network perimeters and increased attack surfaces offered by more complex IT environments, a growing use of cloud services and the new demands that places on security practices, and the increasingly sophisticated nature of cyber criminals – and the landscape continues to evolve.

How to Avoid Epic Fails in Data Security Battlecard

Today, the cyber-security attack surface continues to expand even as network perimeters vanish. Cyber-attackers have evolved from pranksters into organized criminals whose sole focus is separating you from your money, your data,or both. But fear not breaches can be avoided–if you know what not to do.This Battle Card highlights some common mistakes other organizations have made.

Forrester Report: The Eight Business And Security Benefits Of Zero Trust

In response to increasingly complex cyberattacks, security pros devote resources to granular aspects of their networks. This is understandable and necessary to a degree, but it's also a great way to lose sight of your ultimate goal: protecting customers and empowering the business. Zero Trust networks accomplish the dual tasks of deep, continuous data inspection across the network and lean operation and oversight — tasks that seem mutually exclusive in traditional networks. This report highlights the eight most significant ways Zero Trust boosts security and your business. This is an update of a previously published report; Forrester reviews and updates it periodically for continued relevance and accuracy.

The Total Economic Impact of IBM Security Guardium – en_US (April 2018)

Data security presents a complex challenge to organizations. The value of sensitive data, and particularly customer data, has increased exponentially over time, but with it comes an increase in potential liability and exposure. Successful enterprise security and compliance strategy needs to balance out: the rapid growth of data within organizations’ environments; the complexity of regulations and compliance across industries; and the threat of internal and external attacks.

To better understand the benefits, costs, and risks associated with a Guardium implementation, Forrester interviewed three customers with multiple years of experience using Guardium. IBM Security Guardium offers a family of integrated modules for managing the entire data security and compliance life cycle, which is built on a single, unified infrastructure with a unified user experience. Guardium is designed to support and secure a wide range of data environments, including: databases; data warehouses; file systems; and cloud, virtual, and big data-based systems.
