McAfee today announced a limited time free trial to "test drive" McAfee Virtual Network Security Platform (McAfee vNSP) on Amazon Web Services (AWS) for a hands-on experience running advanced security in the public cloud. Unlike other solutions, McAfee vNSP protects at the workload level, eliminating the single point of failure created by other solutions for a whole network segment. As part of the test drive, participants can simulate real-world attack use cases, configure policy and review reporting dashboards. Attendees at the AWS Summit New York can view a demo of the McAfee vNSP test drive at booth 437 in the Javits Center.

"AWS covers a lot of ground, such as security of the cloud, but users are still responsible for their security in the cloud-including securing their operating systems, applications and data traffic," said Shishir Singh, vice president and general manager of the Network Security business unit, McAfee. "While firewall configurations are important, security teams and cloud architects need to address exploit prevention, malware protection and gain visibility into the lateral movement of threats. With McAfee Network Security Platform, users can move beyond the basics to more sophisticated protection of their cloud network."

Grazed from Datamation. Author: Andi Mann.

It is becoming a truism that every business is a technology business. This is borne out every day in the fortunes made and lost on the business technology battlefield – Uber vs. yellow cabs, Netflix vs. Blockbuster, Amazon vs. almost every retailer, bitcoin and fintech vs. banks and insurance giants. To survive and thrive in the Internet age, you need to transform your business into a digital business.

In digital transformation, cloud computing is table stakes. It creates the foundation for innovation, experimentation, and iteration by delivering the agility, flexibility, and scalability that lets both IT and business try new things, quickly, easily, and cheaply.

WHITEPAPER: Cloud Computing Models for Data Warehousing

Grazed from Teradata. Author: Editorial Staff.

Cloud computing is creating a new era for IT by providing a set of services that appears to have infinite capacity, immediate deployment and high availability at trivial cost.

While cost reduction is a real benefit, there is more value in the increased speed, flexibility and ease of delivery in cloud environments. The only way to gain these advantages is by changing the approach and practices for delivering applications and data...
