5 Things Your SaaS Backup Must Do

Chris Shakarian - Grax and Henry Baltazar - 451 Research

Most enterprises rely on SaaS applications, such as Salesforce, to run critical aspects of their business. But 451 Research says nearly 1 in 3 businesses don’t actually backup their SaaS application data. And 52.8% rely solely on the same SaaS application vendor to provide backup and recovery services — which means they don’t actually own their data. As we all know, inadequate protection and accessibility can result in significant financial and productivity losses. Just as important, it can also stifle business insights, hurt compliance efforts, and derail growth. In fact, 451 Research reported that 92% of organizations have experienced negative impacts due to bad backup (corruption).

A Tale of Two IT Ops Teams

Mohan Kompella - BigPanda and Nancy Gohring - 451 Research

Imagine two IT Ops teams. One lives in constant fear that somewhere, someone will change something seemingly benign and trigger the dreaded P1 incident. They spend entirely too many hours of their lives on calls between 15 different teams trying to figure it out what caused the outage, while the clock ticks, MTTR rates skyrocket and customer satisfaction plummets. The other decided to take a phased approach to IT Ops modernization. As the business adopted new technologies, so did they. Consolidation of data across all monitoring tools. Artificial Intelligence (AI) / Machine Learning (ML) to automatically reduce the noise and identify root cause in real-time. And automation of key incident management workflows. Improved NOC productivity, increased L1 resolution rates, prevented P3s and P2s from becoming P0s and P1s, reduced ticket volume, reduced MTTD, MTTA and MTTR, and most importantly, made customers happier.

    From burden to benefit: How compliance can accelerate better data management

    Shyam Potta - Riversand and Paige Bartley - 451 Research

    There is a pervasive perception amongst organizations that data-specific regulations such as GDPR and their associated compliance requirements are a net burden on business. The rationale is that data privacy requirements, in particular, restrict access and use of data and that compliance initiatives are cost centers. This can be true if the enterprise takes an ad hoc or “checkbox” approach to meeting individual requirements as they arise. But with a strategic approach, organizations can take advantage of evolving regulatory requirements to align them with proactive business objectives. After all, what these data-oriented regulations mandate is complete, granular control of enterprise data. With full control of data, the business can realize numerous downstream benefits in data quality, self-service data access, security, and more. This webinar will explore how compliance requirements can be an opportunity for optimization of data management practices, and how technology approaches such as master data management (MDM) can complement these initiatives for business benefit.

    Is it really possible to lock down an endpoint? Yes, but not how you might think.

    Carolyn Crandall - Attivo and Fernando Montenegro - 451 Research

    Endpoints are the primary target of attackers, with research sharing that, on average, attackers can compromise them in under 5 hours and can break out (move to another system) in under 4.5 hours. Today, the stakes are higher than ever. With the rapid decentralization and proliferation of connected devices, endpoints are the new battleground. Antivirus is foundational, and EDR solutions add valuable improvements. However, even with these controls, attackers have demonstrated that they can successfully bypass them, and once they have, are extremely difficult to detect. Locking down the endpoint from lateral movement would massively valuable in reducing risk. So, is it really possible to lock down the endpoint? Can this same technology go so far as derailing even the act of active observation?

    Tune in with Fernando Montenegro, Analyst at 451 Research, and Carolyn Crandall, Chief Deception Officer, and CMO at Attivo Networks, for an engaging discussion on the latest Endpoint Security research, challenges organizations are facing today, and why deception technology has created a winning strategy for locking down the endpoint.

    Robotic Automation for CCPA Compliance – and Beyond -- with PrivacyOps

    Rehan Jalil - Securiti and Paige Bartley - 451 Research

    Privacy regulations such as CCPA give broad rights of access, control, and consent of personal data held by corporations to individuals. These stringent new requirements challenge traditional compliance and privacy management practices which are driven by cyclical, rather than iterative, surveys and assessments that are often manual in nature. It instead demands real-time and precise intelligence about personal data and consent amidst a myriad of IT systems and third-party vendors across a company. It also pressures organizations to adopt automated orchestration to streamline fulfillment of various privacy compliance requirements, such as the fulfillment of data subject requests, breach notifications, vendor assessments, and consent management. Compliance today, when executed systematically with automation, can be an opportunity to better manage and control enterprise data resources: fulfilling not only reactive regulatory requirements, but also accelerating proactive use cases such as data science and self-service analytics initiatives.

    Join Paige Bartley, Senior Analyst of Data, AI & Analytics from 451 Research and Rehan Jalil, CEO of SECURITI.ai as they discuss these new regulatory compliance challenges as well as best practices to enable your organization to effectively comply with CCPA and beyond.

    Guide to Eliminating the Top 3 Security Pain Points

    Kowsik Guruswamy - Menlo Security and Fernando Montenegro - 451 Research

    When it comes to dealing with cyberattacks, 61% of IT professionals are not satisfied with the de facto cybersecurity protection method of after-the-fact investigations. Does this frustration sound familiar?

    The top three IT pain points have not been alleviated with this method. Users continue to click phishing links, IT teams don’t trust their end users, and there is still a distinct lack of cybersecurity experts. In addition, the typical answer to a data breach or ransomware attack is still reimaging the infected machine, causing worlds of pain for everyone involved.

    Data collected by 451 Research reflects a growing and commonly accepted trend: Phishing and staff shortages are the norm, and your budget isn’t factoring in the cost of an attack.

    Thankfully, approaches such as isolation can be an efficient way of tackling key areas of concern for security teams.

    Solving the Great Challenge of Modernizing Aging Data Center Facility Infrastructure

    Patrick Donovan and Mark Hurley - Schneider Electric and Kelly Morgan - 451 Research

    According to the Uptime Institute's 2019 enterprise data center survey, the "greatest challenges" related to the infrastructure is aging infrastructure and keeping up with demand. Indeed, significant downtime risk exists when physical infrastructure systems approach the end of their useful life, software management tools no longer reflect or comprehend reality, and operations & maintenance programs become outdated. Aging data centers must either be modernized or have their business functions outsourced to cloud or colocation service providers to minimize the risk of disruption. Sites that postpone modernizing also fail to benefit from recent technological advances. These improvements make data centers simpler, more efficient, easier to manage, and more cost effective to operate today. In addition, IT demands change over time, and modernizing represents an opportunity to re-assess the requirements of the data center, such as redundancy and capacity needs. Fundamentally, you have a choice of buying new, upgrading/fixing what you have, or doing nothing. The right answer might depend on your future growth and outsourcing plans.

    In this webinar, we present a simple four-step framework for how to modernize a data center facility. Often, when modernization is discussed, the focus is only on upgrading the equipment hardware, but as we discuss in this webinar, these steps should be carried out for three key domains – equipment hardware (electrical & mechanical), software management systems, and operations & maintenance programs, since keeping the IT systems running depends on all three.

    How to Increase the Value of Your Enterprise Content With AI

    Zachary Scott Jarvinen - OpenText and Nick Patience - 451 Research

    71% of enterprises across industries struggle to harness the true value of textual data given its complex nature. Apart from missing opportunities to tap into valuable sources of insights, enterprises are putting themselves at risk by not being able to classify and process information in a contextual yet scalable manner. Traditional approaches to process information manually to avoid risks can waste as much of a quarter of a teams’ time only to be unsuccessful 56% of the time representing great unproductivity threats. At the same time, manual processing of large volumes of information delays processes along with an inability to share knowledge across the enterprise translating into an annual 47-million-dollar loss and risks of incompliance that can add up to 14.82 million dollars annually.

    To replace incompliance and inefficiency risks with compliance and scalable content value maximization, enterprises need to be able to increase the value of content by means of making it matter when it comes to kickstarting content-driven processes such as process automations, data migrations and privacy governance.

    Attend this webinar and learn how advanced text analytics and machine learning can intelligently classify volumes of information taking its context into consideration to prevent risks, save costs, and overall increase the value of your enterprise content.

    Making Clouds Work as Advertised for Mid-sized Businesses

    Greg Pierce - DXC and William Fellows and Melanie Posey - 451 Research

    Making clouds work “as advertised” to deliver key benefits of speed and scale is getting harder– especially for small to mid-sized organizations without a deep bench of cloud expertise. Cloud management challenges have grown because of the jumble of clouds available, complex cost models and venues. The investment, time and skills needed to build a control pane and processes to streamline multi-cloud management is often out of reach for all but the biggest companies.

    Instead SMBs can take advantage of DXC Concerto’s approach which overcomes these constraints by packaging best practices and managed services to co-ordinate the use of hybrid IT and multi-cloud services through a cloud management platform. This integrated approach prioritizes the principles of right-sizing and cost management, DevOps enablement and automation with a “Safety First” posture to ensure SMBs get the maximum cloud benefits with the best cost structure.

    Data-driven control: Access Management as a Facilitator of Business Value

    Gal Helemski - PlainID and Paige Bartley - 451 Research

    There’s a pervasive perception held by many organizations that data governance or effective access management for data somehow reduces the ability to leverage and derive insight from information. This could not be further from the truth. Full control of data is necessary for both data protection and data leverage. In this webinar, 451 Research and PlainID will explore the benefits of sophisticated access management strategies as a facilitator for business insight, examining how a data-driven – rather than identity-driven – access management approach protects sensitive informational assets while ensuring that information is still leveraged to its maximum potential, by the maximum number of people within the organization. Consistent control of data access, with automated functionality, is critical to enabling today’s broad self-service initiatives while remaining compliant with evolving data privacy and data protection regulation. Deriving business value from data requires strong governance, as data protection and data leverage are two sides of the same coin defined by strong data control capabilities

    Just because It’s Internal Doesn’t Mean It’s Safe

    Matthew Gardiner - Mimecast and Scott Crawford - 451 Research

    Organizations have become highly sensitive to security threats that originate from the outside, such as malware and phishing, and consequently most have taken steps to block them at key points of entry –including the web and email. But what about the email and web content that makes up most enterprise traffic – that which is generated internally? In many organizations, this goes largely uninspected.

    Did you know that, according to Mimecast research, less than half of all enterprise email traffic is inbound into the organization? The remaining traffic is generated internally and sent internally or outbound from the organization. Why is this important? According to Mimecast’s 2018 State of Email Security Report, 80% of organizations encountered threats caused by attackers infiltrating and compromising users’ email accounts.
