Grazed from Netcracker

Netcracker Technology announced today the launch of a game-changing new solution: the Netcracker Business Cloud, which eliminates the time, cost and complexity barriers service providers typically face in deploying cloud-based applications and virtual connectivity services. By offering the industry's first end-to-end, cloud-based SDN/NFV and IT solution-from VNFs to orchestration, OSS, BSS, portals and a digital marketplace-as a service, the solution enables dramatic reductions in time-to-market while opening disruptive business models for service providers. Netcracker Business Cloud, as part of its end-to-end offering, also includes comprehensive consulting and go-to-market services, making it a full turnkey solution.

Netcracker Business Cloud offers remarkable deployment flexibility using Netcracker's cloud or a multi-cloud environment comprised of a service provider's private cloud and public clouds, with Netcracker taking responsibility for the end-to-end service. For large service providers with OpCo and ServCo models, Netcracker Business Cloud offers the flexibility to host the solution in a single location and deliver it as a service to the affiliates, enabling them to offer next-gen B2B services quickly. While it is a full-stack solution, its flexible, microservices-based architecture allows operators to use only parts of the solution they need to further augment or replace their own cloud solutions.

WhiteHat Application Security Report Released Today

WhiteHat Security released its 2018 Application Security Statistics Report, "The Evolution of the Secure Software Lifecycle," today.  The report identifies the security vulnerabilities and challenges introduced into the enterprise through traditional applications, and through agile development frameworks, microservices, application programming interfaces (APIs), and cloud architectures. 

WhiteHat's annual study was published in partnership with NowSecure, providers of automated mobile app security testing; and Coalfire, providers of cyber risk management and compliance services for public and private enterprises.

One of the greatest concerns discovered by these methods, alongside WhiteHat's application security testing, is that with few exceptions, the number of serious vulnerabilities per site has increased across all major industries, despite some improvements in finance, healthcare and retail. Unfortunately, these verticals are still struggling with long windows of exposure combined with very high times to fix, which has driven up security risk levels compared with last year's report
