As we continue to move forward into an age of big data, optimization, and greater convenience through the capabilities of better networking technologies, opportunities have never been greater to use technology to make for a truly seamless hospitality experience. However, growing dependence on your network for everything from booking to entertainment can also mean that hospitality networks hold greater amounts of data than ever before. This makes them a tempting target for hackers.
As the healthcare industry continues to move forward into an age of big data, optimization, and greater coordination of care through the capabilities of better networking technologies, opportunities have never been greater to use technology to truly improve how healthcare professionals interacts with patients. However, growing dependence on your network for everything from medical records to billing information can also mean that healthcare networks hold greater amounts of data than ever before. This makes them a tempting target for hackers.
As we continue to move forward into an age of big data, optimization, and shared information through the capabilities of better networking technologies, opportunities have never been greater for using technology to improve the way the government interacts with constituents. However, increasing dependence on web and network services also makes government a tempting target for hackers. Distributed Denial of Service attacks, data breaches, leaks, the risks can be enormous. Recent events have shown us that now more than ever, government servers are getting victimized by well-funded teams of foreign hackers, possibly funded by their government.

One of the biggest challenges to effectively stopping breaches lies in sifting through vast amounts of data to find the subtle clues that indicate an attack is imminent or underway. As modern computer systems generate billions of events daily, the amount of data to analyze can reach petabytes. Compounding the problem, the data is often unstructured, discrete and disconnected. As a result, organizations struggle to determine how individual events may be connected to signal an impending attack.
Download the white paper to learn:
• How to detect known and unknown threats by applying high-volume graph-based technology, similar to the ones developed by Facebook and Google
• How CrowdStrike solved this challenge by building its own proprietary graph data model
• How CrowdStrike Threat Graph™ collects and analyzes massive volumes of security-related data to stop breaches
Consumers equipped with smartphones expect fast, convenient and uniquely relevant shopping experiences in store and online. As a result, one-third of shoppers are not satisfied with the in-store experience, turned off by everything from chronic out-of-stocks to cookie-cutter products and marketing messages that speak to the masses, as opposed to them as individuals.
In turn, retailers are empowering front-line associates with tools designed to add newfound conveniences, such as locating inventory without having to leave a shopper’s side, to texting them curated product offers based on in-store and online buying patterns and preferences
These are just a few of the insights found in Zebra’s 10th annual shopper study, which surveyed nearly 7,500 consumers from North America, Latin America, Asia-Pacific, Europe and the Middle East to gain a deeper understanding of shopper satisfaction and retail technology trends that are reshaping brick-and-mortar and online stores.

GDPR compliance can be achieved through a combination of people, processes and technology. This document has described solutions that can help organizations with their GDPR journey. But you can extend that protection and strengthen security controls even further via strong and risk authentication or workload automation for the processing automation of personal data helping you comply with GDPR as well as similar mandates. Regulations tend to set the minimum standards to be required, but in the application economy, open enterprises must ensure due diligence to protect one of the most important and critical assets: private customer information.
SE Labs tested CylancePROTECT® in an offline environment against major threats that subsequently appeared in the wild. The test explores the product’s ability to prevent new threats from attacking endpoint systems successfully. CylancePROTECT contains technology designed to identify and block malware using what it claims to be an “artificial intelligence” (AI) model. This model can be updated over time. However, in this test we used the model created in May 2015 and did not permit further updates so that the software was unable to receive new models or edit the existing one. The test exposed systems protected by this older version of CylancePROTECT to very impactful threats discovered and reported widely after May 2015. In this way, the test shows to what extent the product was able to predict how future threats would appear. This “Predictive Advantage” (PA), the advantage that users of the product have against future adversaries, is presented in this report.

dversaries, and cybercriminal organizations in particular,
are building tools and using techniques that are
becoming so difficult to detect that organizations are having
a hard time knowing that intrusions are taking place. Passive
techniques of watching for signs of intrusion are less and less
effective. Environments are complicated, and no technology
can find 100 percent of malicious activity, so humans have to
“go on the hunt.”
Threat hunting is the proactive technique that’s focused on
the pursuit of attacks and the evidence that attackers leave
behind when they’re conducting reconnaissance, attacking
with malware, or exfiltrating sensitive data. Instead of
just hoping that technology flags and alerts you to the suspected
activity, you apply human analytical capacity and
understanding about environment context to more quickly
determine when unauthorized activity occurs. This process
allows attacks to be discovered earlier with the goal of stopping
them before intruders are able t

Today’s tech savvy consumers are continually driving organizations to deliver a modernized shopping experience. To achieve this, retailers are pushing the edge on developing non-traditional ways in delivering sales messages. One of the best ways to engage shoppers with an in-store digital presence is through modern adaptive signages.
Modern signages enable two-way interaction between customers and businesses, tapping onto cutting-edge technologies such as sensors and analytics to respond to customer behavior—helping retailers customize content on the fly.
Find out how Giada Technology leveraged on Intel® processors to power up their cloud terminals to pre-process signage, sensor, and mobile data to efficiently exchange information with the cloud. Retailers are better positioned to present contextual promotions to the shoppers, delivering benefits of lesser wait-time and increased customer satisfaction.
Hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) has emerged as a breakthrough IT technology over the past several years. With the right HCI solution, IT teams can lower costs, increase agility, and reduce complexity— leveraging a modern software-defined IT platform that provides a seamless path to hybrid cloud. IT continues to embrace HCI in great numbers, with the market expected to grow at a compound annual rate of 42 percent through 2023.1
Asian ICT infrastructure investment is exploding as businesses review and modernise their data-centre architectures to keep up with the service demands of a growing and increasingly sophisticated population.
Demand for cloud services, particularly to support big-data analytics initiatives, is driving this trend. Frost & Sullivan, for example, believes the Asia-Pacific cloud computing market will grow at 28.4 percent annually through 2022. Despite this growth, many businesses are also rapidly realising that public cloud is not the best solution for every need as they do not always offer the same level of visibility, performance, and control as on-premises infrastructure.This reality is pushing many companies towards the middle ground of hybrid IT, in which applications and infrastructure are distributed across public cloud and self-managed data centre infrastructure. Read about Medical company Mutoh and how it took advantage of the latest technology.
It is now apparent that three specific technology advancements—non-volatile memory express (NVMe), NVMe over fabrics (NVMe-oF), and storage-class memory (SCM)—are transformative and will end up guiding the future of high-end data storage. Each of those technologies reduce I/O latency significantly.
However, organizations working to transform their data centers shouldn’t regard performance as the only end goal. Great performance is important because it increases an array’s ability to handle any workload intelligently, scale to meet unpredictable demand, and operate cost efficiently. The Dell EMC PowerMax powered by Intel® Xeon® processor is an impressive example of this type of modern storage architecture. It has been designed deliberately to maximize the speed of NVMe and by extension, offer transformational efficiency benefits and business value.
