Miercom was engaged by Cisco Systems to independently configure, operate and then assess aspects of competitive campus-network infrastructures from Cisco Systems and Huawei Technologies. The products of each vendor were configured and deployed strictly according to the vendors' recommended designs, and using their respective software for campus-wide network management, control, configuration and monitoring.
A leading US-based broadcasting and publishing firm, with a market value of $17 Bn plus, creates, acquires and distributes entertainment content to global consumers over diverse platforms. The Company owns iconic media brands and has the viewership base amongst the US cable networks. The Broadcaster wanted to gain deeper insights into audience viewership patterns, advertisement impressions and sales data, in order to streamline the management of its advertisement deals. LTI's ADAPT (AD Sales Audience Prediction and tracking) solution optimized allocation, management, tracking and maintenance of advertisement air time to substantial increase in Marketing ROI.

This White Paper examines the need for AANPM and how it helps organisations to optimise the performance of business critical applications while speeding up network and application trouble-shooting and minimising downtime.
This guide is intended for companies,organizations, and IT professionals who are looking for a network and application monitoring tool that provides a holistic view of application performance, including performance monitoring, from the end-user perspective.
Attacks today incorporate increasingly sophisticated methods of social engineering and client-side software manipulation to exfiltrate data without detection. Some attackers leverage so-called spearphishing to entice employees to give up access information and spread their attacks to other enterprise systems; others use password crackers against compromised applications in order to gain further access rights to the network. The attackers might also set up channels for command and control communications with the compromised systems, as in the case of the Zeus or SpyEye bot infections.
High availability is a must in our current cyberculture, and several advanced features that should be part of your next-generation firewall can help ensure that your network and your enterprise are continually up and running.
URL filtering is a type of content filtering that allows or blocks users from accessing specific websites. The practice has become an essential one on enterprise networks, with the goal of blocking employees from accessing content that would be a detriment to their productivity or the company as a whole. Blocked sites may include those that threaten the security of the organization, have objectionable content, or are bandwidth-intensive enough to strain company resources.
Centralized and accurate network security management is more than a trend—it is quickly establishing itself as the only means of network survival. Old-school point solutions, where each solution served a single purpose at a particular point in the network, are quickly becoming unwieldy, if not impossible, to manage. Larger enterprises may have hundreds of point products throughout their network, and managing them effectively, efficiently, and securely can only be done through a centralized network security management solution. Look for eight key features in your network security management solution to ensure that your network not only survives but thrives.
The need for robust network security is growing, but IT security teams, resources, and budgets are shrinking at many organizations. That doesn’t mean you have to scale down your growth or skimp on key IT security areas, but it does mean you need to optimize your resources, starting with your network firewall team. Resource optimization involves the automation and streamlining of operational processes and management workflows so that your IT team members can be freed up to focus their time, skills, and expertise on priority projects. Furthermore, optimizing your resources helps preserve your budget while eliminating budgetary conflicts and slashing administrative costs.
With networks sprawling to massive proportions and malicious activity hitting hard, fast, and constantly evolving, situational awareness is more vital than ever in keeping your network secure. Situational awareness refers to the continuous monitoring of your network by analyzing bulk data collected from sources across the board. In other words, it delivers a detailed overview of all areas of your network so you know exactly what’s going on through increased visibility and response capabilities.
Advanced evasion techniques, or AETs, are delivery mechanisms used to disguise advanced persistent threats (APTs) and permit them to slip through network security undetected.
AETs work by splitting up malicious payloads into smaller pieces, disguising them, and delivering them simultaneously across multiple and rarely used protocols. Once inside, AETs reassemble to unleash malware and continue an APT attack.
Network availability and survivability in the face of an attack requires specific tools and processes. Are you using RBAC, hierarchical policy management and individual domain control? Find out which eight features you must deploy now.
The financial services industry has unique challenges that often prevent it from achieving its strategic goals. The keys to solving these issues are hidden in machine data—the largest category of big data—which is both untapped and full of potential.

One of the biggest challenges IT ops teams face is the lack of visibility across its infrastructure — physical, virtual and in the cloud. Making things even more complex, any infrastructure monitoring solution needs to not only meet the IT team’s needs, but also the needs of other stakeholders including line of business (LOB) owners and application developers.
For companies already using a monitoring platform like Splunk, monitoring blindspots arise from the need to prioritize across multiple departments. This report outlines a four-step approach for an effective IT operations monitoring (ITOM) strategy.

Attack Surface Manager (ASM) gives security teams unprecedented power to easily implement a cyber hygiene program to harden their networks against malicious lateral movement of cyberattackers. This paper provides an overview of common ways that Illusive's customers are using Attack Surface Manager, including fortifying PAM/PIM solutions, detecting insider threats and malicious insider activity, and providing powerful, automated Red Team functions.
Illusive Networks is proud to once again sponsor the Cyberthreat Defense Report by CyberEdge Group, now in its sixth year, to help security leaders assess and shape their cybersecurity programs. Download this comprehensive report to learn more about the most wanted security management and operations technology for 2019, which security processes organizations struggle with the most, and how organizations are trying to detect advanced cyberthreats more quickly.
Do you know how attackers can move once they’re inside your network? The access footprint changes constantly as users log on and off, restart systems, change roles, and access resources. Until now, these conditions have only been visible when skilled analysts inspect individual systems. Attack Surface Manager reveals hidden credentials and paths to critical systems so you can continuously impede attacker movement—without impeding the business.
Enterprise customers can take advantage of the many benefits provided by Amazon Web Services (AWS) to achieve business agility, cost savings, and high availability by running their SAP environments on the AWS Cloud.
Many Enterprise customers run SAP production workloads on AWS today; including those that run on NON-SAP DBs (Oracle, MS SQL, DB2) or on SAP DBs (SAP HANA, SAP ASE). To support the demand of high memory instances, AWS have disclosed their SAP HANA instance roadmap (8TB and 16TB in 2018) and just made 4TB x1e instances available. A few examples of how AWS helped SAP customers cut costs, improve performance and agility include BP reducing 1/3 of their SAP infrastructure cost, Zappos successfully migrating to SAP HANA on AWS in less than 48 hours and enabling a major Healthcare and Life Science company to run BW on HANA with 30% better performance vs. on premise.
This guide is intended for SAP customers and partners who want to learn about the benefits and options for running SAP solutions on AWS, or who want to know how to implement and operate their SAP environment effectively on AWS.
