From MFA to Zero Trust: A Five-Phase Journey to Securing the Workforce

Zero trust has become a dominant security model for the changes brought by mobility, consumerization of IT and cloud applications. And while the term zero trust continues to infiltrate IT security conversations, it raises an important question: how do we get there?

In this guide, we examine the three pillars of zero trust: Zero Trust for the Workforce, Zero Trust for the Workloads and Zero Trust for the Workplace. We pay particular attention to the journey to achieving Zero Trust for the Workforce, which focuses on making sure users and devices can be trusted as they access applications and systems, regardless of location.

Native Mobile vs. Progressive Web App: Developer Evaluation Guide

With just over half of all internet traffic serving mobile devices, your users expect a smartphone-friendly experience. But does that mean you have to invest in the creation and maintenance of native mobile apps?

Progressive web apps (PWAs) offer an alternative to native mobile development. PWAs give your users a native app-like experience but, under the hood, they're just standard web applications with some mobile-friendly additions. Depending on your app's needs, PWAs could help you get to market faster, improve discoverability, and reduce maintenance costs.

Is a PWA right for your next project? Download this evaluation guide where you’ll learn:

  • The fundamentals of progressive web apps
  • Business benefits and advantages of PWAs
  • The pros and cons of PWAs
  • How OutSystems accelerates PWA development

Head-to-Head: Monolith vs. Microservices

Wednesday, June 23 at 2pm ET

The pace of technology innovation has dramatically accelerated and IT can no longer postpone the modernization of legacy systems. Modernizing legacy applications is an iterative process—one that doesn’t have to involve a start-from-scratch approach.

Decoupling is one of the approaches companies can take to create flexibility without ripping out the entire legacy portfolio. By refactoring systems into microservices, companies can take advantage of the scale, reusability, and flexibility of cloud-native apps.

Join our upcoming Tech Talk to learn more about how you can use OutSystems to leverage microservices and to modernize your IT portfolio in a progressive approach. Some of the topics we’ll cover include:

  • What functions should be broken out of a monolithic application and how granular your microservices should be
  • How to realize the scalability and flexibility from modernizing to the cloud
  • Best practices to define a modular and future-ready architecture

The Importance of Having a CISO Strategy for Small Business IT Teams

One size doesn’t fit all when it comes to businesses. Some may have a full IT team on staff. Others may not, and many are limited by resources and budget. With cyberattacks targeting small to mid-sized businesses at an all-time high, it’s critical for IT consultants and service providers to be having those conversations with SMBs about enterprise grade security protection, tailored exactly to their needs.

In an interview with Richard Tubb, the IT Business Growth Expert, Jaya Baloo covers:

  • The best ways to present cybersecurity to SMBs and explain its importance
  • The biggest cyber threats faced by SMBs today and the best defense strategy
  • How SMBs with limited budgets and/or IT resources can still stay protected
  • The importance of a response plan in case an SMB is impacted by a cyber attack
  • The future of the cybersecurity landscape and the role of emerging technologies
