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.

Best Practices for Optimizing Website Performance With Tag Management

Many factors impact site performance, including the speed of the hosting provider, page design, number of http requests, and more. One big factor is the accumulation of digital marketing vendor tags and pixels on web pages. Tags can dramatically impact site performance in a number of ways, including poor tag design, slow response time associated with the collection servers, tag placement and the sheer number of tags accumulated on pages. Over the years, Tealium has pioneered many of the best practices in tagging and has incorporated various techniques to minimize the effect of tags on website performance.

They include:

  • Tag Loading & Page Performance – Perceived Load Time vs Actual Load Time
  • Asynchronous Loading
  • Client-Side Tagging with Multi-CDNs
  • Script Compression (gzip) and Bundling
  • Conditional Loading
  • Reduced Page Weight
  • Fewer DNS Lookups
  • Intelligent Cache

Using these techniques, our e-commerce clients can see a 20 to 50% increase in overall site speed. This whitepaper provides more details about these techniques and their associated benefits.

Forrester – How Dirty is Your Data

‘As consumers’ privacy concerns grow, marketers must rethink their data practices. Today’s data governance practices — the rules that guide what consumer data a company collects; how it stores, transfers, and manages that data; and how it uses and disposes of that data — are nebulous at best and dangerously misguided at worst. Marketers must redefine how their organizations treat customers’ personal data.’

This report helps marketers categorize the different types of data their firms collect and provides guidelines on how to govern that data. Get the report and learn:

  • Different types of data being collected and emerging data types that further complicate the landscape
  • The 3 dimensions for evaluating consumer data
  • Guidelines on how to govern that data

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.
