The Forrester Wave: Endpoint Security Suites, Q4 2016

The endpoint security market is continuously growing as many customers find endpoint security suites to be effective in tackling their top security concerns. However, the market is now very fragmented with vendors approaching endpoint security in different ways.

Symantec Endpoint Protection + Secure Web Gateway

For too long, information security has been a piecemeal battle. Security leaders have been forced to stitch together an array of point products that weren’t designed to work together. Those days are about to end.

Symantec’s acquisition of Blue Coat combines two established security pioneers with deep roots across several technology categories. The unified portfolio creates new opportunities that analysts have said will change the way organisations buy security with an integrated approach to attack some of the more fundamental transformations that are reshaping IT security.

Find out more in this solution brief for Symantec’s new flagship products for enterprise security.

Next Generation Endpoint: Hype or Hope?

New endpoint security products have emerged over the recent years claiming to address the changing landscape. But most of these new products either focus on a narrow spectrum of attacks, or use techniques that can be easily evaded. A more reliable approach should include cross-product integration and several layers of resilient prevention and detection techniques.

This paper addresses the trends that have emerged to deal with malware challenges on the endpoint and presents customers with the information necessary to evaluate the right approach for their organisation.

Nurturing a productive data team

Big data has attracted a massive amount of attention from the media and pundits today, both with regards to general use cases as well as its specific applications in every industry from art to transportation.

In response to this recent focus, businesses have decided to dive head first into data science in an attempt to make sense of all the data they’re collecting. They’re increasingly hiring staff and assembling teams whose roles are specifically centred around making use of the company’s data.

The key to developing a data team that is able to thrive is understanding data team maturity. This whitepaper will walk through each of the stages of a data team and the characteristics of teams at this stage: infantile, juvenile, adolescent, mature, and senior. Specifically, it will also address the steps and milestones required to progress from one stage to the next.

Why teams need data science tools

Organisations today collect massive amounts of data, and as such, businesses across all industries are adopting analytics strategies quickly. In its magic quadrant for data science platforms, Gartner estimates that, by 2020, predictive and prescriptive analytics will attract 40% of enterprises’ new investment in BI and analytics technologies.

However, despite this investment, many organisations struggle to use their data to add value to the business. Or another common scenario is that they have seen tremendous value from their data and want to increase it, but they’re having difficulty scaling a data team and managing data projects accordingly.

Both of these challenges point to the need to invest (or reinvest) in data teams. But it’s not just about investing in personnel, although that can be part of the equation; it’s also about investing in resources to make a data team work successfully together and, subsequently, allow it to scale.

The 5 key challenges to building a successful data team

Enter big data, a holistic term that aims to encapsulate the sheer massiveness of the amount of information available from the growing number of data sources.

As data storage capabilities have grown, IT teams have made a significant effort to collect data. But the reality is that many people (and in fact many organisations) still don’t know what to do with all of that data.

This whitepaper aims to address the challenges and offer solutions that are applicable to all teams working on data projects whether they are just starting out or are already established.

Do away with paperwork and double your business productivity

It may be the last issue on your mind, but staying compliant to legislative rules and regulations is important to all businesses. The Employment Act* mandates all businesses to issue itemised payslips to employees, maintain key employment terms (KETs), and to maintain records for all employees, including those who left the company.

myBusiness Essentials Payslip (E. Payslip) is a solution developed to digitalise itemised payslip to employees that is in accordance with the Ministry of Manpower (MOM) requirements. E. Payslip lets you create and maintain employment records, issue monthly itemised payslips in digital and printed formats as well as archive ex-employees’ records and payslips easily.

Achieving B2B maturity

Business to Business (B2B) integration is an increasingly strategic business function for enterprises worldwide. In a world driven by digital transformation, it provides the glue between the organisation and its increasingly global and extended trading partner community.

Recent SCM World research suggests significant challenges are ahead, as companies try to move from their current B2B integration capabilities to the collaborative, community-based solutions needed to meet today’s business challenges.

Enhancing the purchase order process in the pharmaceutical industry

In an effort to provide customers with opportunities to engage with partners any time and anywhere, companies are turning to creative methods for managing purchase orders to maximise their product offerings and availability, while continuing to manage the risk associated with carrying too much inventory.

Organisations must determine how to transform what is generally a fragmented “multi-channel” approach into a seamless omni-channel experience, both within the enterprise and for the customer.

Smart trading networks define the future of retail success

With consumers increasingly choosing online shopping, retailers are embracing e-commerce and customer fulfilment. This demands a realignment of retail supply chain operations to focus on key customer value drivers: delivering easier online shopping, inventory availability, and fast fulfillment. This white paper will discuss how to be successful with three key priorities to help build a customer centric supply chain.

Digital transformation drives supply chain restructuring imperative

Today's supply chains are experiencing high levels of change in terms of both internal and external pressures. There's every reason to believe that this pace of change will accelerate and that the supply chain of the future will be in a constant state of flux.

Companies that can build supply chain flexibility more quickly will be better positioned to support their consumers/customers and thus grow their business more effectively. Based on survey results and domain knowledge, this white paper explores how digital transformation (DX) is driving dramatic restructuring changes in the supply chain.

Sharpening your competitive edge with B2B managed services

Realising the full benefits of today’s global B2B marketplace demands flexibility, responsiveness, and innovation. Yet most organisations struggle to achieve the core technical infrastructure, operational expertise, and foresight necessary to truly maximise their B2B e commerce potential. More and more organisations are turning to B2B managed services as a method of attaining their supply chain goals.

Construction and real estate

Historically, the construction industry has been hampered by inefficiencies that have held it back from reaching its productivity potential. Through a combination of limited technological capabilities, integration of systems, and to some degree a lack of willingness amongst different construction industry partners to fully collaborate with each other, the construction industry has fallen behind other sectors in its ability to drive accountability and efficiency.
