10 Critical Questions for Choosing a Cloud-based ERP Solution

More importantly, it enables you to focus on your core business operations instead of managing IT.

So Cloud-based ERP may be right for your business, but where do you start? This white paper contains 10 questions to ask when considering a Cloud-based ERP solution.

Security Intelligence: Information Sharing Strategies Using Trusted Collaboration


The challenge for the recipient of raw intelligence is validating whether or not the information gathered is accurate and can be used effectively in a timely manner. The results of intelligence collection can be ambiguous at best and often lacks standards; therefore, raw intelligence must go through a number of steps to assess its value.

Alternative approaches to data set normalization do exist. Trusted collaboration is a unique approach to security intelligence due to the speed in which intelligence can be reviewed and the diversity of experience within the community to analyze the attack data.

We've seen the “commercialization” of malware, with attack kits available on underground forums for anyone who wants to perpetrate a variety of attacks.

The Linux User's Toolkit for Discovering New Apps


With a few exceptions, installing a Linux distribution is like checking into an all-inclusive resort. Your hardware works out-of-the-box, and you get an impressive selection of pre-installed software: from photo editing tools and multimedia players to email and chat clients, and even a full-blown office suite.

But what if you want to replace one of the default applications, or try out some new Linux software? Well, you could always just Google it—and pray you won’t have to venture beyond the tenth page of results to find something usable. Or you could build yourself a list of reliable resources where you can quickly browse applications, search and sort them by various criteria, and easily download the ones you like.

If the latter approach sounds more sensible, you’re at the right place at the right time, because today we’ll show you some tips on how and where to find new Linux applications.

Unlock the Key to Repel Ransomware


The most common ransomware attack scenarios encrypt the victim's data before a ransom demand is even delivered. Because users place a high value on their data, many are willing to pay to get it back. However, paying the ransom is unwise, primarily because it does not guarantee that the corrupted data will be decrypted.

Modern crypto malware uses encryption schemes that — up to now — seem to be unbreakable, so victims face a choice between paying up or losing those files forever. This eBook will describe common ransomware scenarios, trends in this type of cybercrime and recommendations to help your organization avoid victimization.

AWS Cloud Security Report for Risk & Security Professionals


Key Takeaways

AWS Is Serious About Information Security

There has been too much hype about cloud security being different and inherently insecure. Cloud security is no different from other solutions we deploy. Security pros should apply the same security standards to cloud workloads applied to on-premises workloads.

In The AWS World, Security Is A Shared Responsibility

AWS is not going to secure your applications or software infrastructure for you. AWS’ responsibility stops at the abstraction point between its services and the applications you deploy. It’s up to security and risk pros to engineer the correct security atop AWS. AWS provides key security building blocks, but it’s still your responsibility.

AWS Demonstrates Strong Cloud Security Processes and Controls

AWS has a very comprehensive security program for its platform. AWS has foundational security controls for its services that enable customers to build secure applications. Where AWS does not have a solution, third parties are working to provide security technology as SaaS and virtual appliances for the AWS environment.
