As the nature of work continues to evolve, modern organizations face an ever-changing set of challenges. The consumerization of IT and an increasingly mobile workforce have created a generation of workers who interact with data and information in entirely new ways. If businesses want to keep their footing in this new landscape, they must respond in ways that allow them to stay both flexible and secure.
IT process automation can seem like a big step, but there are incremental ways to achieve improved efficiency that reduce risk and drive better business outcomes. The proper approach to automation can turbocharge your administrative teams, open new doors and provide the agility to respond to any business need. It’s the key to unlocking the power of cloud, and new service offerings make it more attractive to those looking to build the right IT business strategy for the future.
Applications are the modern lifeblood of the enterprise, and the desire to keep up with market demands has elevated most enterprise IT strategies from purely on-premises to hybrid and multi-cloud. But the desire to be even more agile and productive—and connect with end users in new and exciting ways—is pushing investments even further into new application environments, development processes, and management tools all leveraging cloud-native technology. In this executive brief, we home in on one component of the cloud-native movement, Kubernetes, and break down its role in achieving enterprise agility, experimentation, and innovation for competitive gain.

"We are in an age of unprecedented opportunity, where ubiquitous data and new technologies are shaping the world and dramatically changing the way consumers interact with businesses like yours.
The rise of fintech companies is driving competition, e-commerce has raised the bar for digital experiences, fraud is at an all-time high, and there is pressure to grow your business. You need to meet these challenges head
on and do it in a way that can scale with the increasing volume — and value — of customers. All while meeting and exceeding customer expectations.
We believe rapid, sustainable growth can be fuelled by acquiring the right customers and delivering customer experiences that align with their expectations. To succeed you need a comprehensive, unified view into your customers and their needs. As a business leader, how do you achieve these objectives? What can you do to attract and acquire new customers? What tools do you need to quickly act on insights and to make consistent, relev
Around the globe, voices clamoring for climate-aware investing and carbon controlsare increasing. Demand for ethical treatment of employees, customers and other stakeholders is also growing, as is indignation about poorly-managed companies.
Companies are subject to an increasing set of non-financial reporting requirements relating to environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors. A swathe of new requirements will soon impact the investment and lending appetites of EU financial institutions. Coupled with increasing investor demands, these new rules could have a profound impact on companies’ ability to raise capital, within the EU and beyond.
Consumers have become more educated about the value of data and cyber risks associated with it. As consumer awareness increases so does their expectations of trust and digital security. Read now KPMG's report Trust in the time of disruption to understand the cybersecurity gap that exists between consumers and organisations, and what asset management and financial services firms as a whole can do to close the trust gap.
"Every kind of online interaction—website visits, API calls to mobile apps, and others—is being attacked by bots. Whether it's fraud, scraping, spam, DDoS, espionage, shilling, or simply altering your SEO ranking, bots are wreaking havoc on websites as well as mobile and business applications.
But that’s not all: they’re also messing with your business intelligence (BI). They can skew audience metrics, customer journeys and even ad buys, making business decisions questionable and costly. According to Forrester, ad fraud alone was set to exceed $3.3 billion in 2018.
Not all bots are bad. In fact, your business depends on them. Search engine bots, for example, give your web presence visibility and authority online. Other good bots help you deliver better customer experiences—perhaps a chatbot provides instant customer assistance on your site. What’s important is enabling the good bots and blocking the bad ones."
"Safeguarding the identity of users and managing the level of access they have to critical business applications could be the biggest security challenge organizations face in today’s assumed- breach world.
Over 6,500 publicly disclosed data breaches occurred in 2018 alone, exposing over 5 billion records—a large majority of which included usernames and passwords.1 This wasn’t new to 2018 though, as evidenced by
the existence of an online, searchable database of 8 billion username and password combinations that have been stolen over the years (https://haveibeenpwned.com/), keeping in mind there are only 4.3 billion people worldwide that have internet access.
These credentials aren’t stolen just for fun—they are the leading attack type for causing a data breach. And the driving force behind the majority of credential attacks are bots—malicious ones—because they enable cybercriminals to achieve scale. That’s why prioritizing secure access and bot protection needs to be part of every organ

Authentication is evolving from static one-time user action, to transparent and continuous ways of validating digital identities without imposing frustration on end users. Behavioral biometrics technologies invisibly and unobtrusively authenticate users by validating the manner in which they physically interact online. Behavioral biometrics technologies learn how individual users hold mobile devices in their hands and press their fingers on the touchscreen. On computers, the system learns how users type on keyboards and move their mouse and cursor. The BehavioSec solution gathers this behavioral data and analyzes it using advanced techniques, to ensure that the user is who you expect them to be.

In this case study, a large enterprise with an increasing amount
of off-site work from both work-related travel and a fast-growing
remote workforce, is faced with a unique challenge to ensure
their data security is scalable and impenetrable. Their data access
policies rely on physical access management provided at the
company offices and do not always provide off-site employees
with the ability to complete work-critical tasks. Legacy security
solutions only add burden to productivity, sometimes causing
employees to ignore security protocols in order to simply
complete their work. Upon evaluating security vendors for a
frictionless solution, they selected BehavioSec for its enterprise-grade capabilities with on-premise deployment and integration
with existing legacy risk management systems.

"Malicious cryptomining has consistently been one of the top threats across all internet activity in 2018. Cryptominers tap into an organization’s computing power to create cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Monero — and generate profit for themselves. If you’re not protected, it can cost you in all kinds of ways. It can lead to degraded system performance and regulatory risks, and leaves an attacker with an open door to further exploit your network.
