  • Why Endpoint Backup is More Critical Than Ever
    New research dives deep into the trends and drivers for enterprise endpoint backup. The mobile mind shift is here, and as employees increasingly favor using mobile devices--both personal and company-issued--for work, enterprise IT must ensure data protection and enable user productivity. Let's face it--we're beyond the data center. Relying on traditional firewalls and local file shares is no longer enough when it comes to securing and backing up this critical data "on the edge" on your endpoints. A comprehensive data protection strategy means backing up data across an exceedingly fast-growing number of devices and operating systems. Get the latest backup trends (and what to do about them) in this study conducted by Forrester Consulting on behalf of Code42 in March 2014.
  • Private or Public? Choosing the API Program Best Aligned with your Company's Business Model
    Live Event Date: November 13, 2014 @ 2:00 p.m. ET / 11:00 a.m. PT APIs can be a great source of competitive advantage. The practice of exposing backend services as APIs has become pervasive, however their use varies widely across companies and industries. Some companies leverage APIs to create internal, operational and development efficiencies, while others use them to drive ancillary revenue channels. Many companies successfully support both public and private programs from the same API by varying levels of access to different constituents. Nearly all companies stand to benefit by launching and nurturing an API program. It's relatively easy to expose an API, but managing a program gets complicated in a hurry. Align yourself for success by following best practices and deploying an API management platform. Join Tameez Sunderji, Director of Platform Strategy at IntelĀ® Services, to learn how various business models align with different API program strategies and how successful companies leverage several key resources to achieve their goals. In this webinar you will learn: Best practices in determining your API business model API program types that map to different business objectives Trusted resources used by successful companies Real world examples across several industries and API program types
  • Ensuring Business Continuity with Last-Mile Diversity and Redundancy
    In support of their business continuity and disaster recovery plans, many midsized companies endeavor to avoid putting all their eggs in one basket. Understanding the critical role of last-mile connectivity and always available Internet access for their enterprises, savvy firms utilize redundant connections from multiple service providers. Despite the good intentions, their Internet connectivity risk may still be in a single basket. That is because internet service providers (ISPs) and competitive local exchange carriers (CLECs) may operate using leased infrastructure from the same incumbent local exchange carrier (ILEC). When the ILEC network fails, so do the services of alternative providers utilizing the same network. Internet service outages may result from myriad causes: from sabotage, natural disasters or terrorist attacks, to unexpected utility line cuts and regularly scheduled network repairs, as well as equipment or application software failures. Additionally, IP network configuration errors, hacker attacks or congestion can severely degrade Internet services, undermining service availability. Whatever the cause, when the flow of Internet data stops, business does too. Mediums-size firms experience an average of 32 hours of network downtime each year due to service provider failures with an estimated cost of $189,000 in lost revenue and productivity. Increasingly, companies are turning to cable providers to ensure business continuity. Cable's infrastructure is physically separate from the telephone company networks at the local last mile, metro and regional levels, enabling genuine network redundancy and diversity. Additionally, by owning and operating their networks and construction teams, cable operators may more quickly provision and better monitor services than can CLECs or ISPs that merely resell ILEC capacity. To support business continuity and disaster recovery companies need to select multiple providers which reduce risk resulting from a single point of failure. Furthermore, providers that can rapidly scale extra bandwidth when needed and deliver cloud-based backup, storage and alternate site support are preferred partners.
