Enterprises and the threats that target them have all fundamentally evolved over the past decade. In response, the security industry has generated an enormous amount of point solutions and technologies to try and keep pace. However, for all of this innovation and change, the underlying enforcement architecture has remained largely unchanged.
A new modern approach to preempting threats is required. One that augments the existing architecture instead of replaces it. This new approach brings full enterprise and business context to real-time enforcement decisions. Identity, behavior, devices, anomalies, and risk all play a real-time role. Just as importantly, enforcement and access options can be graded based on the risk to the business, and policies can actively seek out and adapt to new information.
In December 2017, Dell commissioned Forrester Consulting to conduct a study to determine how enterprise organizations are structured from an IT departmental perspective. The study explored two types of IT: digital controllers and digital transformers; and the trends and challenges seen in PC provisioning. Digital controllers are often associated with top-down approach, linear structure, and emphasize security and accuracy. In contrast, digital transformers focus on innovation, employee-and customer-centricity, and prioritize speed and flexibility. By understanding the two groups, enterprises can overcome challenges that arise from PC life-cycle management. By investing in existing PC management tools and partnering with a company that specializes in PC deployment and management, firms can empower employees to better serve customers

Enterprises currently face challenges regarding
the price, performance, and flexibility of traditional
wide area networks (WANs). Aggressive growth in
the adoption of public cloud services (a projected
86% spike between 2014 and 2018)1
organizations to look elsewhere for a more effective
network solution to address distributed traffic across
remote sites and branch offices.
Some of the specific issues organizations face with
their traditional WANs include:
- High total cost of ownership (TCO)
- Lengthy provisioning cycles
- Performance degradation with the growth of cloud
- Inadequate redundancy and resiliency
- Lack of application-aware connectivity
To better manage WAN investments, enterprises are
adopting a new approach for their distributed branch
office networks. Software-defined WAN (SD-WAN)
offers improved performance, agility, and operational
flexibility plus significant cost savings. But not all SDWAN
solutions are created equal.
Cloud services are a pillar of a digital transformation,
but they have also become a thorn in the side of many
security architects. As data and applications that were
once behind the enterprise firewall began roaming
free—on smartphones, between Internet-of-Things
(IoT) devices, and in the cloud—the threat landscape
expanded rapidly. Security architects scrambled to adjust
their technologies, policies, and procedures. But just
when they thought they had a handle on securing their
cloud-connected enterprises, new business imperatives
indicated that one cloud wasn’t enough.
Modern enterprises operate in a multi-cloud world,
where the threat landscape has reached a new level of
complexity. Security teams are juggling a hodgepodge
of policies, threat reports, and management tools. When
each cloud operates in its own silo, the security architect
has even more difficulty supporting the CISO or CIO with a
coherent, defensible security posture.
If your organization is one of the 95% of enterprises
that operate in the cloud, you are already grappling
with cloud security. And if your organization is one of
the 85% of companies that use multiple Infrastructureas-a-Service
(IaaS) and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS)
clouds, you have additional issues to consider.
Compared to the days when organizations managed
everything on-premises or only had a handful of cloud
deployments, this new multi-cloud world exacerbates
the expansion of the attack surface and makes threat
containment and accountability more difficult. Further,
pressure on security teams to protect everything in
the multi-cloud environment is leading to reactive and
expensive threat management.
If you are a security leader tasked with meeting the
challenges of a multi-cloud environment, eventually
you’ll find that siloed cloud security strategies fall short
of the mark. But don’t wait. Now is the time to consider
a holistic security approach that reclaims control from
Today, employees spend around 10–20% of their time on mundane, repetitive tasks that can be easily automated. With Robotic Process Automation (RPA), businesses can offload these cumbersome tasks to their Digital Workforce, giving human workers more time for productivity and innovation. According to Forbes, automation can save employees up to six to nine weeks of effort each year, saving businesses four million dollars annually. This recovered time can be reinvested into career development and personal growth opportunities, making work more human..
Gartner predicts that by 2020, 40% of large enterprises will have adopted Robotic Process Automation (RPA), up from less than 10% today.
The evidence is overwhelmingly clear. To be competitive today–and tomorrow–you must automate. But which products should you buy for your organization?
First came the bots—software robots created using Robotic Process Automation (RPA) tools to execute defined tasks. These bots have made a big impact by increase efficiency, productivity, and profitability across all industries globally.
81% of enterprises are taking RPA “seriously”
53% are taking it “very seriously”
Today, RPA is no longer limited to predefined tasks and data. AI-based “smart bots” are capable of handling ambiguity and make decisions similar to their human counterparts.
This eBook explains what makes these smart bots—called cognitive bots—so valuable. You’ll discover unprecedented ways cognitive bots can help your business.

"High-profile cyber attacks seem to occur almost daily in recent years. Clearly security threats are persistent and growing. While many organizations have adopted a defense-in-depth strategy — utilizing anti-virus protection, firewalls, intruder prevention systems, sandboxing, and secure web gateways — most IT departments still fail to explicitly protect the Domain Name System (DNS). This oversight leaves a massive gap in network defenses.
But this infrastructure doesn’t have to be a vulnerability. Solutions that protect recursive DNS (rDNS) can serve as a simple and effective security control point for end users and devices on your network.
