See It, Fix It, Manage It: Ensuring Hybrid and Multi-cloud Applications Are Reliable and Secure
Most enterprises are moving to hybrid or multi-cloud architectures. Operating these environments requires IT teams to rethink their approach to monitoring and reporting on applications and environments. Cloud services differ in functions which makes achieving and maintaining a consistent configuration difficult but not impossible. A significant portion of companies plan to utilize third-party products, reducing some of the variability in feature capabilities across clouds to simplify management.

The author of this Pathfinder report is Mike Fratto, a Senior Research Analyst on the Applied Infrastructure & DevOps team at 451 Research, a part of S&P Global Market Intelligence. Pathfinder reports navigate decision-makers through the issues surrounding a specific technology or business case, explore the business value of adoption, and recommend the range of considerations and concrete next steps in the decision-making process.

This report explores the following topics:

  • the growth of already commonplace cloud usage for mission-critical applications
  • the importance of cloud governance
  • the top cloud security concerns for enterprises
  • the adoption of third-party tools for cloud management
  • the steps IT teams should take to make their cloud environments more secure and reliable
Solving the BIG problems in cloud computing
The two big challenges in deploying and growing cloud usage are cost and security. Shadow IT has contributed to those challenges by causing overspending and exposing organizations to significant security risks. So, how should enterprises address both hybrid (on-premises and in the cloud) and multi-cloud challenges? This research reviews new technologies and approaches that can improve visibility for IT teams, enable security policies across the entire network, and manage costs more effectively.

Vladimir Galabov, Director, Cloud and Data Center Research, and Rik Turner, Principal Analyst, Emerging Technologies, are the co-authors of this eBook from Omdia, a data, research, and consulting business that offers expert analysis and strategic insight to empower decision-making surrounding new technologies.

This eBook covers the following topics:

  • the current landscape of cloud computing, including the BIG problems
  • the advantages of using a multi-cloud approach
  • the dangers of shadow IT, including billing surprises and security breaches
  • the move of mission-critical applications to the cloud
  • the considerations regarding cloud security, including recommendations for IT teams
US Cybersecurity Census Report
Cybersecurity is now recognized as a key priority for U.S. businesses. However, cybersecurity threats are evolving as risks, and the responses necessary to mitigate them, change rapidly. Staying a step ahead of bad actors is a continuous challenge and businesses—despite their intentions to do so—aren’t always keeping pace.

Cybersecurity is now recognized as a key priority for U.S. businesses. However, cybersecurity threats are evolving as risks, and the responses necessary to mitigate them, change rapidly. Staying a step ahead of bad actors is a continuous challenge and businesses—despite their intentions to do so—aren’t always keeping pace.

To solve this problem, IT leaders must understand why. They need answers to questions such as, how is cybersecurity transforming? How are cyberattacks harming businesses? Where must investments in preventative training and tools be focused? Is cybersecurity being prioritized by leadership? And how does cybersecurity fit within organizational culture?

In partnership with Sapio Research, Keeper Security analyzed the behaviors and attitudes of 516 IT decision-makers in the U.S. to answer these questions and more. This report, Keeper’s second annual U.S. Cybersecurity Census, maps the transforming landscape of cybersecurity based on these expert insights. It provides leaders with a forensic assessment of the threats their businesses face and details the urgent strategies necessary to overcome them.

Businesses across the U.S. are making cybersecurity a priority. However, despite efforts and investments, clear gaps remain. Our research shows that there have been small steps, but no giant leaps.

The volume and pace at which threats are hitting businesses are increasing, and leadership can’t afford to wait. If they do, the financial, reputational, and organizational penalties will be severe. Likewise, as work has transformed dramatically over the past two years—with hybrid and remote working normalized— companies need to rethink how they are building cybersecurity resilience.

Shaping the Future of Remote Access With Apache Guacamole Technology
In today's hybrid and remote working era, the importance of secure and convenient remote desktop access has become increasingly evident. As employees access sensitive data and systems from various locations and devices, organizations face heightened security risks. These risks include potential data breaches and cyber attacks, particularly when IT and DevOps teams use privileged accounts for remote infrastructure management.
In today's hybrid and remote working era, the importance of secure and convenient remote desktop access has become increasingly evident. As employees access sensitive data and systems from various locations and devices, organizations face heightened security risks. These risks include potential data breaches and cyber attacks, particularly when IT and DevOps teams use privileged accounts for remote infrastructure management.

Since 2016, many users have turned to Apache Guacamole, a community-driven open-source remote desktop platform that is free for anyone to use and if your organization is technically savvy. The source code is publicly available to compile and build.

However, if you’d like software that’s ready to deploy for the enterprise and comes with responsive, professional support, Keeper Connection Manager (KCM) can provide an affordable way to get all the benefits of Apache Guacamole.

KCM provides users with a secure and reliable way to remotely connect to their machines using Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP), Virtual Network Computing (VNC), Secure Shell (SSH) and other common protocols. Moreover, KCM is backed by a responsive team, including the original creators of Apache Guacamole, ensuring expert assistance is always available.

Let’s dive into the importance and challenges of remote access below.

In recent years, the demand for real-time remediation solutions has been on the rise as organizations seek to streamline their support operations and improve customer satisfaction. Real-time remediation solutions are designed to help IT support teams quickly identify and resolve user issues by automating common troubleshooting tasks and providing actionable insights. Another reason for the rise in demand is the massive shift to work from anywhere that has occurred post COVID-19. According to Gartner, Inc. a research and advisory firm, it is predicted that work from anywhere will continue to rise. By year-end 2023, 48% of knowledge workers will be working hybrid and fully remote, up from 27% in 2019, with 39% of those working hybrid, up from 12% in 2020.

Hybrid is no longer just an employee perk but an employee expectation, challenging employers to create a human-centric approach to “hybrid.” However, there is no sign of a decline in hybrid work. According to a Gartner, Inc. Hybrid Work Employee Survey, 74% of hybrid or remote employees say their expectations for working flexibly have increased. Only 4% of current hybrid or remote employees have a preference for an on-site arrangement. This hybrid working shift creates a challenge for IT admins to have the ability to monitor and remediate remote endpoints, and this is where real-time remediation solutions come in. This whitepaper will examine the current market for real-time remediation solutions, including key trends, challenges, and opportunities.

Optimization of IT Log Data with Log Intelligence
Cyber attacks are getting sophisticated, necessitating early detection of malicious activity. Stringent government policies and compliances necessitate building robust log management systems. And, increased reliance on technology to support hybrid work models necessitates efficient management of extensive log data. Hence, log intelligence is in demand by organizations as they need robust systems to address the issues above and create secure and efficient log management.
