Why you need comprehensive application protection across multi-cloud environments

Your applications and APIs are essential. But in modern application architectures, it’s common for applications to be distributed across multi-cloud environments. This not only increases IT complexity, but also can leave your crucial applications and APIs vulnerable to new threats.

It’s time for comprehensive cloud-delivered application protection, which offers benefits such as:

  • Simplified, centralized, and automated security for applications across environments
  • Increased flexibility to evolve application models while ensuring protection across monolithic and microservices-based architectures
  • Cost-effective consumption model to maximize budgets and increase predictability in spending

Vulnerability Remediation Orchestration in Action

Vulnerability management programs exist first and foremost to drive desired business outcomes, and second to reduce business risk. But vulnerability management must be done right, and go beyond traditional expectations, to have the desired effect on the business.

Join Vulcan Cyber CEO, Yaniv Bar-Dayan, as he outlines the maturity model for vulnerability remediation designed to move security and IT operations teams from reactive to data-driven, and from orchestrated to transformed. Then Yaniv will provide a live demonstration of the Vulcan Cyber vulnerability remediation orchestration platform in action.

A Business Case for Vulnerability Remediation Orchestration

From the moment you scan for vulnerabilities, the rest of the remediation effort becomes tedious and manual. The growing scale and complexity of these programs has resulted in unbearable inefficiencies. Companies now spend an average of nearly 500 hours a week on vulnerability management with no guarantee of a remediation outcome. This white paper provides the details, the math and examples to help you build a business case for vulnerability remediation orchestration. It is time to get fix done.

Here’s what you’ll learn from this white paper:

  • How to calculate the effectiveness and ROI of legacy vulnerability management programs.
  • Why vulnerability management isn’t enough, and is leaving your business exposed.
  • How to build an internal business case for vulnerability remediation orchestration.

Choosing the right battery backup for network closets and IDF applications

Network closets and intermediate distribution frames (IDF) are critical parts of IT networks, but they're often scattered about. They seldom have dedicated IT personnel close by and are often neglected. A network closet can be a lonely place! And yet if there’s a power outage, an IDF or network closet being knocked out of commission can cause significant problems. They’re also vulnerable to both non-IT humans (e.g. the cleaning staff unplugging the UPS battery backup) and cybersecurity breaches.

Selecting the right UPS battery backup for your network closet or IDF can be a confusing process. This uninterruptible power supply (UPS) buying guide is designed to help you properly plan so you can make your IT network more resilient and reliable.

Important considerations when buying and installing a UPS

All uninterruptible power supply (UPS) models are not created equal, nor are their installation requirements. Large, mid-range modular and smaller plug-and-play models may all have individual considerations. Requirements can also differ among UPS backup topologies and deployment methods. If you need more help understanding the differences between UPSs and determining the optimal model for your particular environment or application, read this whitepaper.

Data center UPS battery handbook

It’s well understood that the battery in a UPS is the most vulnerable part of the system. In fact, battery failure is a leading cause of load loss. Knowing how to maintain and manage your UPS batteries will extend their life and save you time and potential trouble in the future.

Improvements in battery technology have been evolutionary rather than revolutionary. Capabilities such as advanced charging regimens, software management for accurate remaining life information and firmware adding intelligence to batteries have reduced, but not eliminated, the risks inherent in depending on any battery. As a result, it’s prudent, if not essential, to take a close look at what may be increasing your risk of unexpected load loss from a failing UPS battery. After all, even large installations with many batteries are vulnerable to the failure of a single battery.

Quick guide to power distribution

Power distribution is facilitated through different pieces of equipment that take the power conditioned by your uninterruptible power supply (UPS) and send it to your IT equipment. Power distribution units like rack PDUs can manage and even control energy consumption in smaller environments as well as large data center applications. Distributing power efficiently results in reduced operating costs and increased reliability. This guide should help you get familiar with power distribution, gain interesting insights and learn key considerations for future IT investments.
