Technology and application trends such as cloud, big data, storage and server growth, mobile applications, bring-your-own-device (BYOD) and software-defined everything are the biggest disrupters of enterprise IT today. The resultant pressure on IT teams is to deliver excellent user experiences, and enable agile business and innovation while guaranteeing performance and availability in a perpetually changing IT landscape. Now, more than ever, the digital business is “the business.” Compounding the complexity and risk of this “new normal” state on mission-critical application infrastructures are comple interdependencies and technology advances leading to blindingly fast servers, converging infrastructure components, mass adoption of virtualization, and rapid migration to cloud and hybrid-cloud models. The key drivers behind all of these trends is demand for any time, anywhere, application access and flawless performance from any device. These factors exponentially increase application infrastructure performance requirements. The result is a never-ending pace of rapid transformation, and explosive increase in complexity and risk.

New Ransomware Targets Critical Infrastructure in 2020

Article | March 31, 2020

Critical infrastructure, like power and water systems, face a number of cyber-security threats. Traditional ransomware variants can bring these systems down by encrypting files that are vital to their operation. However, a new variant poses an even greater risk to critical infrastructure. The Ekans ransomware is designed specifically to take down critical services, making anti-ransomware protection even more important in these environments. Ransomware is a well-known threat made famous by the WannaCry worm. The success of the 2017 WannaCry outbreak has inspired a rash of attacks and new ransomware variants in recent years.

A new era of automation with Cisco ACI and the Citrix ADC Manager app

Article | February 12, 2020

Since it was first available, Citrix has worked with Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI) to integrate Citrix ADC with the Cisco Application Policy Infrastructure Controller (APIC). As a valued technology partner, Citrix has a device package — a software module — that enables users to configure the Citrix ADC directly from a Cisco APIC. This setup has run in many customer production environments over the years. Let’s consider one of those customers — Jim. He was the first to deploy the integrated solution in his data center. The solution gave him the automation he needed and a single view to configure, deploy, and manage applications. However, his application admins preferred to use the Citrix ADC user interface to manage L4-L7 services.
