Protecting the VMware Environment with IBM Spectrum Protect
Spectrum Computing

Redpaper, published 25 Dec 2017, last updated 8 Jan 2018

While backup is a topic of much discussion, development, and strategy, the name of the game is rapid recovery. Given the explosive growth of data in our Client environments, there is a need to provide solutions to our Clients that meet their recovery time objective and recovery point objective needs. Traditional backups of files, databases, and similar objects sent across networks (LAN or SAN) to backup servers provide a degree of recoverability, but the speed of backup and recovery is constrained by resource capacity (server, network, storage, and so on). This results in longer backup and ... [more]

IBM QRadar Version 7.3 Planning and Installation Guide
Security

Redbooks, published 4 Jan 2018

With the advances of technology and the reoccurrence of data leaks, cyber security is a bigger challenge than ever before. Cyber attacks evolve as quickly as the technology itself, and hackers are finding more innovative ways to break security controls to access confidential data and to interrupt services. Hackers reinvent themselves using new technology features as a tool to expose companies and individuals. Therefore, cyber security cannot be reactive but must go a step further by implementing proactive security controls that protect one of the most important assets of every organization: ... [more]
