Webinar: Zero Downtime, Zero Touch Stretch Clusters from Software-Defined Storage


Business continuity, especially across data centers in nearby locations often depends on complicated scripts, manual intervention and numerous checklists. Those error-prone processes are exponentially more difficult when the data storage equipment differs between sites.

Such difficulties force many organizations to settle for partial disaster recovery measures, conceding data loss and hours of downtime during occasional facility outages.

WHEN? Aug. 22, 2018 @ 2pm ET

In this webinar and live demo, you'll learn about:

  • Software-defined storage services capable of continuously mirroring data in real-time between unlike storage devices.
  • Non-disruptive failover between stretched cluster requiring zero touch
  • Rapid restoration of normal conditions when the facilities come back up

CloudPassage Debuts Halo Cloud Secure, Delivering Unparalleled, Continuous Security of Public Cloud Infrastructure

Grazed from CloudPassage

CloudPassage today announced the general availability of Halo Cloud Secure, which offers comprehensive and continuous protection of public cloud infrastructure, delivering security and DevOps teams a "single pane of glass" view of security and compliance across all of their cloud service provider (CSP) accounts.

Organizations face an increase in vulnerabilities as security teams struggle to maintain effective, real-time visibility into public cloud infrastructure. Maintaining security visibility of dynamic computing environments can be difficult due to decentralization of the IT department, the expanding public cloud infrastructure attack surface and cloud service misconfiguration. According to The 2018 Cloud Security Report, 62 percent of cybersecurity professionals see infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) misconfigurations as the biggest threat to their public clouds environments. Additionally, 43 percent of cloud security professionals report lack of visibility into infrastructure security as the biggest operational challenge.

Gartner Survey Says Cloud Computing Remains Top Emerging Business Risk

Grazed from Gartner

Cloud computing ranks as the top risk concern for executives in risk, audit, finance and compliance, according to the latest survey by Gartner, Inc. While cloud computing presents organizations with novel opportunities, a number of new risks - including cybersecurity disclosure and General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) compliance - make cloud solutions susceptible to unexpected security threats.

In Gartner's latest quarterly Emerging Risks Report, 110 senior executives in risk, audit, finance and compliance at large global organizations identified cloud computing as the top concern for the second consecutive quarter. Additional information security risks, such as cybersecurity disclosure and GDPR compliance, ranked among the top five concerns of the executives surveyed.

The top two fast-moving, high-impact risks - those which have the ability to cripple an organization quickly - are also related to information security threats. Social engineering and GDPR compliance were cited as most likely to cause the greatest enterprise damage if not adequately addressed by risk management leaders, according to Gartner. However, only 18 percent of the cross-functional executives surveyed currently considered social engineering to be a significant enterprise risk.
