The Why, the What and the How of the SDDC
The Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC) is an overarching philosophy for implementing better data centers. The most basic way to think about an SDDC is as a combination of virtualized computing resources, plus software-defined storage and networking. In addition, SDDC often includes overarching security aspects: in other words, SDDC abstracts and automates all the compute, storage and networking aspects that are traditionally physical, and it can put that automation and abstraction to use in enhancing security.

Our research found that the vast majority of servers are already running virtualized today, while roughly one-half of organizations are either planning to transform their data center(s) into SDDCs or they have already done so. Among those planning to transition their data center(s) to SDDC, most are planning to do so within the next two years.

Cybersecurity: For Defenders, It's About Time
In multiple areas of cybersecurity, time works in favor of the attackers—making time the strategic advantage that defenders need to regain. In this report, Aberdeen Group provides four illustrative examples of how recapturing the advantage of time helps you reduce risk in the fundamental categories of data protection, threat detection and incident response, data center and cloud security, and endpoint security.

Risk Assessments for Local Governments and SMB
When was your organization’s last risk assessment? Can you put your hands on the report? If you haven’t had a risk assessment recently, it’s a safe bet that your policies are sorely lacking. Defining an organizational policy for risk assessment is an essential component of any comprehensive suite of security policies. Both HIPAA and GLBA require periodic risk assessments, but it's a sound practice for all types and sizes of organizations.
 
Security Risks Arise From Insecure Implementations of HTML5 postMessage() API
In this post, McAfee experts look at the security risks arising due to insecure implementation of the HTML5 postMessage()API. Before we discuss how this cross-domain messaging API works, we must understand a few important concepts such as the same-origin policy and security risks associated with cross-origin communications.
 
Avoiding a data disaster: could your business recover from human error?
Think about this: What would you do if one of your trusted database administrators made a mistake that wiped out all of your databases in one keystroke? Could your business recover? Backing up data at an off-site data center has long been a best practice, and that strategy relates more to the disaster recovery (DR) component of business continuity management (BCM). DR and BCM go hand in hand, but there is a difference: BCM is about making sure the enterprise can resume business quickly after a disaster. Disaster recovery (DR) falls within the continuity plan and specifically addresses protecting IT infrastructure – including systems and databases – that organizations need to operate.
