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
Mind the Gap: Understanding the threats to your Microsoft 365 data
Download this whitepaper to learn more about how you can prevent, or mitigate, these common Microsoft 365 data threats: external threats like ransomware, malicious insiders, user-errors, accidental keystrokes, and retention policy gaps.
From corporate contacts to sensitive messages and attachments, email systems at all companies contain some of the most important data needed to keep business running and successful. At the same time, your office productivity suite of documents, notes, and spreadsheets created by your employees is equally vital.

Unfortunately, in both cases, protecting that data is increasingly challenging. Microsoft provides what some describe as marginal efforts to protect and backup data, leaving the majority of the burden on the customer.

Ten Topics to Discuss with your Cloud Provider
Find the “just right” cloud for your business. For this white paper, we will focus on existing applications (vs. new application services) that require high levels of performance and security, but that also enable customers to meet specific cost expectations.
There are hundreds, if not thousands, of cloud services available to organizations. In many cases, the capabilities of the service, adjusted for cost, matter more to decision makers than the infrastructure itself. As an example, the underlying infrastructure that supports common business software such as Salesforce, Microsoft Office 365, is rarely scrutinized, as the products are trusted solely on the brand’s reputation.

Choosing the right cloud service for your organization, or for your target customer if you are a managed service provider, can be time consuming and effort intensive. For this paper, we will focus on existing applications (vs. new application services) that require high levels of performance and security, but that also enable customers to meet specific cost expectations. Topics covered include:
•    Global access and availability
•    Cloud management
•    Application performance
•    Security and compliance

Keeper Security Insight Report: Privileged Access Mgmt Survey User Insights on Cost & Complexity
Privileged access management solutions are primarily designed to protect IT staff, executive leadership, and research and development staff, however, the accelerated digital transformation and ceaseless barrage of cyberthreats is making it increasingly important to protect all end-users within an organization.

Research finds PAM solutions are too complex with 68% of organizations paying for “wasted features” that are rarely used. A global survey of 400 IT and security executives conducted in January 2023, by Keeper Security in partnership with TrendCandy Research, reveals an overwhelming industry desire for Privileged Access Management (PAM) solutions that are easy to deploy and maintain.

The findings show that traditional PAM solutions are falling far short, largely because they are too complex to implement and use. An overwhelming 84% of IT leaders said they want to simplify their PAM solution in 2023. In the current high-risk security climate, it is imperative that all organizations secure their privileged credentials, privileged accounts, and privileged sessions to protect their crown jewels. However, many traditional PAM solutions are failing to provide their intended value outside of these core use cases, because deployment is either too complex, too cost-prohibitive, or both. In the era of remote work, organizations need agile identity security solutions that can protect against cybersecurity threat vectors by monitoring, detecting, and preventing unauthorized privileged access to critical resources.

Keeper Security, a leading innovator in privileged access management, wanted to better understand how IT leaders are thinking about PAM, deploying their PAM solutions, and streamlining their PAM implementations. Keeper commissioned an independent research firm to survey 400 IT and data security leaders in North America and Europe about their strategies and plans for PAM in 2023.

The Shortest Distance to Virtualization Excellence
When it comes to virtualization technology, you have more options than you probably realize. With the number of options available, you can choose an IT infrastructure platform that offers a simplified, highly automated infrastructure that keeps your applications and organization running efficiently. Many of today’s virtualization solutions are comprised of multiple vendor products—one for the hypervisor, servers, and storage hardware—making it more complicated and expensive than it needs to be.

Why Migrating to Scale Computing's Virtualization Solution is the Smart Choice

Introduction

When it comes to virtualization technology, you have more options than you probably realize. With the number of options available, you can choose an IT infrastructure platform that offers a simplified, highly automated infrastructure that keeps your applications and organization running efficiently.

Many of today’s virtualization solutions are comprised of multiple vendor products—one for the hypervisor, servers, and storage hardware—making it more complicated and expensive than it needs to be. Configuring those disparate server and storage components just the right way wastes valuable time.

Then you have to install and configure the hypervisor and add time to test for compatibility and performance, further delaying deployment. To succeed, you need expertise in all those different platforms, some of which are so complicated that you’re expected to be certified in them.

Once you’ve got it all up and running, it can be hard to scale out when you need more resources, especially if you’re not able to add the exact same components. You may need to bring in more expertise and conduct more testing. Then you have the ongoing cost of licensing renewals, support, and maintenance for multiple pieces from multiple vendors, including different licenses for different features. Add disaster recovery—an additional piece of the puzzle that can add yet another vendor, requiring more expertise and further complicating matters. There goes more time and more money.

Whether you’re considering migrating from your existing virtualization platform or are virtualizing from scratch for the first time, there’s a better way to do it. Whether you are looking at a single location or implementing an edge computing platform across hundreds of sites, Scale Computing’s hyperconverged approach is the shortest path to affordable virtualization that’s easy to deploy, easy to manage, and easy to scale.

Scale Computing’s virtualization software and appliances are based on patented technologies designed from the ground up to minimize infrastructure complexity and cost. Scale Computing Platform has helped IT organizations across all industries deploy robust virtualization solutions.

This white paper explores the advantages SC//Platform offers over competing virtualization solutions, looks at potential migration options, and shows how Scale Computing is making a difference in organizations like yours.
