Cross-Border Data Flows Realising benefits and removing barriers

| September 5, 2018

Today’s commerce relies on organisations’ ability to move data – including consumers’ personal data – across borders without restriction. The ability to do so generates positive outcomes not only for organisations, but for citizens and countries as well. Any organisation, no matter how small, can use the internet to market and deliver its ideas, goods and services, wherever data is allowed to flow. Crossborder data transfers enable digital goods and services to be accessed more or less instantly\  and physical goods to be ordered for delivery, regardless of where the items are produced. Organisations respond to consumer demand by expanding to serve more geographic markets, leading to more consumer choice. At the same time, companies that operate in multiple countries gain efficiencies by centralising and virtualising their data analysis, processing and storage.

Data Security in the Cloud Best Practices

Article | April 8, 2020

Data security in the cloud best practices include: understanding and implementing security fundamentals, securing cloud infrastructure along the shared responsibility model, encrypting data in the cloud, and ensuring compliance with applicable regulations. Data security fundamentals often come back to the CIA Triad: data confidentiality, data integrity, and data availability. The shared responsibility model refers to the idea that both a cloud provider and the organization using the cloud are responsible for ensuring the overall security of the organization’s cloud infrastructure, including the data housed there.

How to Rapidly Scale IT Infrastructure For Remote Workers

Article | April 8, 2020

Rapid IT infrastructure scaling is always challenging. In March 2020, the coronavirus caused a surge in remote workers as organizations switched overwhelmingly to work-from-home policies. Scaling IT infrastructure to support this sudden shift proved to be a struggle for IT teams, resulting in a migration to cloud-based applications and solutions, a rush on hardware that can support a remote environment, and challenges scaling VPNs to support remote worker security. Here are some of the insights and lessons learned from IT professionals.

5 Essential Principles for Managing SD-Branch Security

Article | April 8, 2020

Software-defined wide-area networking (SD-WAN) is revolutionizing the way that local branches are managed. As we’ve previously pointed out in our article on 4 things you should know about SD-Branch, it is being used to enable faster cloud adoption and greatly improve centralized control over the systems running in branch offices. Unfortunately, these advantages also come with some downsides. As SD-WAN has developed in SD-Branch, the number of IoT and end-user devices connected to these networks has grown exponentially. This means that the surface attack area of the average SD-Branch setup has increased enormously over the past few years. At the same time, business-critical applications are now sharing more data than ever over broadband internet connections, exposing critical data to interception or disruption.

How to Scale IT Infrastructure

Article | April 8, 2020

IT infrastructure scaling is when the size and power of an IT system are scaled to accommodate changes in storage and workflow demands. Infrastructure scaling can be horizontal or vertical. Vertical scaling, or scaling up, adds more processing power and memory to a system, giving it an immediate boost. Horizontal scaling, or scaling out, adds more servers to the cloud, easing the bottleneck in the long run, but also adding more complexity to the system.
