Why the Threat of Downtime Should Be Keeping You Up at Night

When it comes to building security and automation systems, you simply can’t afford to risk any server downtime. If the servers that run your security systems crash, they take your security down with them — which means you can’t react in an emergency. To keep your organization safe, you need to employ an availability solution that keeps your servers up and running all the time.

Read this white paper to learn all about availability, the exact risks of server downtime, the less obvious costs you can incur, and the different types of availability solutions you can use to protect your organization.

Time to ReThink Network Security

There are three major trends currently unfolding that promise increased efficiency and effectiveness in how we do business. These are cloud computing, big data analysis and mobility. However, with these benefits there are also vulnerabilities that need to be addressed, not least of which is ensuring that valuable data is available and secure. The challenge is to provide this security without handicapping the adoption of these trends and undermining the potential benefits they provide. What is required is a holistic view of network security based on correlation of both network and security information in real-time.

Designing for Intelligibility vs. Audibility

From catastrophic natural disasters to the threats college students face, there has been a heightened demand for Mass Notification Systems (MNS) that provide clear, concise and intelligible voice messages that communicate how people should respond in an emergency. Man-made or natural, the magnitude and diversity of today’s threats have influenced the federal government and other organizations to create regulatory codes for Mass Notification and Emergency Communication Systems, including voice intelligibility requirements for these Life Safety systems to be effective. International, European and North American fire alarm codes now require that voice evacuation systems meet minimum levels of speech intelligibility.

Virtualization and Data Center Security: What You Need to Know for 2014

Data centers are increasingly becoming the center of the enterprise, and data center and cyber security is following the same path for security departments. According to Justin Flynn, a consultant at the Burwood Group, the virtualization of data centers allows enterprises to scale more easily and faster, with a smaller footprint.

However, hosting enterprise data in the cloud can make intrusion detection more difficult – how can enterprise security leaders team up with other departments to keep aware of cyber risks and traffic, and physical and data compliance during the virtual transition? How can CISOs and CSOs discuss cyber threats with the C-Suite to get the resources they need? And how can the proper infrastructure test and verify possible malicious attacks?
