451 Research: Palo Alto Networks, Cisco and Dell are Top Vendors for Intrusion Detection and Prevention

According to 451 Research’s new Voice of the Enterprise: Information Security quarterly study, more than a quarter of the enterprises surveyed name Cisco as their primary Intrusion Detection and Prevention (IDS/IPS) platform provider. In the 451 Research Vendor Window™, enterprises rated Palo Alto Networks highest especially for technical innovation, brand/reputation, and intrusion detection capabilities. Cisco FirePower/SourcePower and Dell Secure Works tied for the second highest rated vendors based on evaluations from 353 existing customers. Based on evaluation of 16 different vendor attributes, the Vendor Window plots enterprise adoption as well as indices that compare vendors’ promise prior to deployment as well as fulfillment after deployment. These latest findings – including a Vendor Window for Security in Enterprise Mobility Management – are based on responses from over 1,000 IT professionals, primarily in North America and EMEA, including 580 unique vendor evaluations in May and June 2015.

As expected, spending on security remains strong with 37% of enterprise security managers expecting to increase their budget in the next 90 days. Only 4% of enterprises are decreasing security spending. Although security budgets are stable or increasing for almost all organizations, security managers reported significant obstacles in implementing desired security projects due to lack of staff expertise (34.5%) and inadequate staffing (26.4%). As one security manager in the retail industry noted, “We continue to struggle with staffing . . . We have been given the open requisitions to hire people, but now we’re trying to find the people.” Given this challenge, only 24% of enterprises have 24×7 monitoring in place using internal resources.

More than half of respondents (52%) noted ‘hackers with malicious intent’ as their top security concern over the past 90 days, followed by navigating compliance requirements (38%). As a consequence, 26% of security managers noted that compliance requirements were a key driver in getting projects approved, second only to risk assessment cited by 26.5% of respondents.

“As the understanding of the prevalence of advanced attackers increases, security managers have continued a move from reliance on preventative controls to an increased focus on security monitoring and incident response,” said Daniel Kennedy, Research Director for Information Security. “Intrusion detection and/or prevention systems are one of the most established and ubiquitous security monitoring tools in place at large enterprises, and perhaps one of the most underutilized. Only 44.4% of enterprises have around-the-clock active monitoring in place.”

Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) Security

A Vendor Window on the security aspects of Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) indicates AirWatch by VMware and MobileIron led adoption, with AirWatch being cited as the most important EMM vendor by 28% of surveyed enterprises. AirWatch garnered high scores in brand/reputation and product usability amongst their current customers.

Voice of the Enterprise: Information Security

Published quarterly, 451 Research’s Voice of the Enterprise: Information Security provides a demand-side view of security technology adoption. These survey-driven reports are derived from 800-1,500 customer surveys and 25 in-depth interviews with senior security professionals each quarter. Learn more about Voice of the Enterprise: Information Security, as well as other Voice of the Enterprise products that cover Cloud Computing, Software-Defined Datacenters, Storage, Datacenter Facilities, and Integrated & Converged Platforms.

About 451 Research’s Vendor Window Methodology

The Vendor Window plots enterprise adoption and Promise and Fulfillment Indices, and is typically based on 300+ unique vendor ratings per market. Only existing customers of each vendor complete the vendor evaluations. Vendors with larger circles have greater adoption in the marketplace. The Promise and Fulfillment Indices compare vendors’ effectiveness at marketing and execution. A vendor located in the upper right quadrant – under-promising and over-delivering – is rated highly for both its promise and the ability to fulfill its promise relative to its peers. Conversely, a vendor in the lower left quadrant rates lower than its peers on the same criteria.

Stardock to showcase Ashes of the Singularity with AMD at the PC Gaming Show June 16th


Plymouth, MI (PRWEB) June 15, 2015

Stardock will be at the PC Gaming Show event in Los Angeles on June 16th to show Ashes of the Singularity gameplay during AMD’s The New Era of PC Gaming live stream starting at 9:00 AM PST. Ashes of the Singularity is Stardock’s upcoming massive scale real time strategy game where AI and post-humans battle for the fate of their worlds.

Gamers can expect Ashes of the Singularity to push the technological boundaries of what is possible in an RTS while providing gameplay innovations in addition to genre staples like base building, resource management and technology upgrades. “What sets Ashes of the Singularity apart is its ability to simulate massive scale with high visual fidelity,” said Brad Wardell CEO of Stardock and Oxide games. “With our Nitrous engine we’re giving players the ability to command thousand unit armies with very sophisticated AI engaged in world war instead of the small battles RTS players are used to.”

The Nitrous engine’s ability to use all of the available CPU cores to get more out of the hardware that gamers already have enables Ashes of the Singularity to have thousands of units on screen, high visual fidelity and more sophisticated AI. Everything in the game is realistically lit by thousands of light sources. Players can zoom out and see multiple, massive battles simultaneously all beautifully rendered without switching to a 2D map or icons.

Gameplay is enhanced by intelligent unit AI that free up a player’s attention to develop tactics to win the larger war. In addition players who have access to DirectX 12 and next-generation GPUs will be able to run Ashes of the Singularity at 4K resolution with the image quality settings turned up for an even more impressive visual experience.

Gamers can watch the morning live stream at http://www.twitch.tv/stardock while the press in attendance will get the chance to meet members of the Ashes of the Singularity development team later that evening during exclusive live gameplay demonstrations and interviews.

Bellevue, WA (PRWEB) June 09, 2015

ComputeNext announced today that it is a Red Herring Top 100 North America award winner. The Red Herring Top 100 North America awards recognize the leading private companies from the region, celebrating these startups’ innovations and technologies across their respective industries.

ComputeNext was selected as a Top 100 winner because the company brings a unique cloud brokerage platform to the market. Its Global Cloud Marketplace is a platform which enables cloud service commerce, provisioning, and management from providers in over 40 locations worldwide. This platform is also available as a white-label solution which can be offered as a Marketplace-as-a-Service or a custom deployment for telecommunications companies, service providers, and large IT resellers/distributors. The platform can be rapidly deployed and customized for partners based on the cloud platforms, products, and services they wish to offer.

Red Herring Top 100 America enlists outstanding entrepreneurs and promising companies. It selects the award winners from approximately 1,200 privately financed companies each year in the US and Canada. Since 1996, Red Herring has kept tabs on these up-and-comers. Red Herring editors were among the first to recognize that companies such as Facebook, Twitter, Google, Yahoo, Skype, Salesforce.com, YouTube, Palo Alto Networks and eBay would change the way we live and work.

“In 2015, selecting the top achievers was by no means a small feat,” said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring. “In fact, we had the toughest time in years because so many entrepreneurs had crossed significant milestones so early. But after much thought, rigorous contemplation and discussion, we narrowed our list down from hundreds of candidates from across North America. We believe ComputeNext embodies the vision, drive and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture. ComputeNext should be proud of its accomplishment, as the competition was very strong.”

Sundar Kannan, CEO and Founder of ComputeNext, said, “We’re delighted to be recognized as an industry leader with this prestigious award. This year we have been rapidly growing and making a huge impact in the cloud brokerage segment. This award recognizes ComputeNext’s ability to offer a robust cloud marketplace solution for our customers that enables them to compete in the rapidly changing market and drive new revenue streams.”

Red Herring’s editorial staff evaluated companies on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, technological innovation and intellectual property, DNA of the founders, business model, customer footprint and addressable market. A review of the track record and standing of startups relative to their sector peers, allowed Red Herring to see past the “buzz” and make the list a valuable instrument of discovery and advocacy for the most promising new business models in North America, complement this assessment of potential.

OASIS Starts Context Server (CXS) Initiative to Advance Standards for Personalized User Experiences Online

(PRWEB) June 04, 2015

The OASIS open standards consortium announced the start of an initiative for delivering personalized user experiences online. Standards developed by the new OASIS Context Server (CXS) Technical Committee will provide companies with more effective ways to engage with their audiences and will give users more control over the data that’s collected on them.

The Context Server will simplify management, integration, and interoperability for WCM, Big Data, CRM, Digital Marketing, and Data Management Platforms. CXS will enable data on user behavior to be collected and aggregated into profiles and user segments to be defined based on demographics. Third party WCM systems will be able to tag and serve content based on these segments. Marketing systems will access profiles and compile lists for campaigns using CXS. Users will have the ability to control their collected data and safeguard their desired level of privacy by accessing the Context Server.

“Organizations are struggling to create consistent personalized experiences across channels, markets, and systems,” said Serge Huber of Jahia, co-chair of the OASIS CXS Technical Committee. “The Context Server will make it possible to deliver personalization in a simple, interoperable way.”

“CXS will speed up vendor innovation and reduce integration costs,” added Thomas Sigdestad of Enonic, who also co-chairs the Committee. “A widely adopted standard will expand the broader market by making it easier to ramp up new products, integrate with existing systems, and grow niche opportunities into new market areas.”

To encourage more Marketing Automation vendors to join the CXS effort, OASIS will host two brief webinars on June 15 at 15:00 CET (09:00 EDT, 06:00 PDT) and at 21:30 CET (15:30 EDT, 12:30 PDT). Register at https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/rt/5164201973309833730.

New members are encouraged to join the OASIS CXS Technical Committee at any time. Archives of the work are accessible to both members and non-members, and OASIS invites public review and comment on the work.

Support for CXS

Jahia

“At Jahia, as initial proposers of the OASIS Context Server TC, we are very excited to chair the effort and put all our efforts behind this personalization standard which we hope will make it possible to build a more transparent web. We fully support the OASIS Context Server TC and will also propose our current implementation to be submitted at the Apache Software Foundation,” said Serge Huber, CTO, Jahia Solutions.

Progress

“The complexity of understanding the customer journey is spanning more channels and systems than ever before,” said Svetozar Georgiev, SVP, Application Platforms of Telerik, a Progress Company. “The development of more standards will enable organizations to more easily gain a complete picture of their interactions with clients to drive better marketing, and overall all business results.”
