Managing Cloud Security: Four Key Questions to Evaluate your Security Position

Tallan Partner

As cloud computing and the Internet of Things (IoT) continue to transform the global economy, businesses recognize that securing enterprise data must be viewed as an ongoing process. Securing the ever-expanding volume, variety, and sources of data is not easy; however, with an adaptive mindset, you can achieve persistent and effective cloud security.
The first step is knowing the key risk areas in cloud computing and IoT processes and assessing whether and where your organization may be exposed to data leaks. File sharing solutions improve the way people collaborate but pose a serious point of vulnerability. Mobile workforces decentralize data storage and dissolve traditional business perimeters.
SaaS solutions turn authentication and user identification into an always-on and always-changing topic. Second, it’s worth developing the habit—if you haven’t already—of reviewing and adapting cloud security strategy as an ongoing capability. To that end, here…

Field of Streams – The Future of Integrations with iPaaS – (Integration Platform-as-a-Service)

Cesar Cordero

There is no debate that software-as-a-service (SaaS) has experienced significant market growth over the past five years. Gartner and Forbes project increased growth of up to 30 percent through 2018. Current revenue metrics support those figures thus far in 2015:

As a result of this growth in the SaaS market, most companies will soon develop the business need to connect with cloud-based applications. Integration needs have expanded from traditional, on-premises B2B applications to include a wide variety of data sources: mobile devices, real-time feeds and unstructured data sets from cloud and hybrid endpoints. These new demands have redefined how we think about integration interfaces and APIs, as well as the tools we choose to build, maintain and monitor them.
Companies now find themselves trying to balance legacy and custom applications already on-premises, with the rise of social media applications and the explosive…

MABS EAI Bridge LoB Lookup (Part 2 of 2)

Dan Field

Last week month (sorry about that!), I wrote a post about using MABS to access a LoB system (in the example, SQL Server) behind several layers of firewalls (here).
We looked at the following tasks

Creating the BizTalk services
Setting up BizTalk Adapter Services in a local (or IaaS) environment to run a stored procedure in SQL Server
Creating a sample table and stored procedure
Creating a ServiceBus namespace with ACS
Create the Relay to the LOB system
Creating an EAI bridge to access the LoB system

This week, we’ll look at these tasks:

Testing and debugging the bridge with a Visual Studio add on
Writing a custom component to call the LoB adapter in a EAI Bridge Stage and parse the response
Having the component send an email notification using an Office 365 server

The Cloud is Here and Now

Dan Fluet

I recently heard a cloud presentation by James Staten and that is what inspired this post.
Cloud is not the future, cloud is NOW!
The first thing you need to know is the cloud is not the future, the cloud is NOW!  If you do not have a cloud strategy you are already behind the curve. Many companies are already in the cloud in various degrees and most have at least an initial cloud strategy mapped out.  If the cloud has been brushed off as a fad or it’s not going to happen, you better get on it because the cloud is here and it is here to stay.
