The new business imperative: A unified cloud security strategy

As more businesses begin to explore the benefits of moving on-premises data and applications to the cloud, they’re having to rethink their traditional approaches to data security. Not only are cybercriminals developing more sophisticated attacks, but the number of employees and users who can access, edit, and share data has increased the risk of breaches. In fact, Gartner indicates* that “through 2022, 95 percent of cloud security incidents failures will be the customer’s fault. CIOs can combat this by implementing and enforcing policies on cloud ownership, responsibility and risk acceptance. They should also be sure to follow a life cycle approach to cloud governance and put in place central management and monitoring planes to cover the inherent complexity of multicloud use.”

Instead of relying on a patchwork of third-party security solutions that don’t always speak to each other, potentially leaving systems vulnerable to attack, companies are now adopting a unified, end-to-end cloud security defense. This typically involves choosing a cloud provider that can integrate security controls right into existing corporate systems and processes. When these controls span the entire IT infrastructure, they make it easier to protect data and maintain user trust by offering increased compatibility, better performance, and more flexibility.

Protection that’s always compatible

A holistic, cloud-supported threat warning and detection system can be designed to work seamlessly across every asset of an IT environment. For instance, built-in security management solutions can give IT teams the ability to constantly monitor the entire system from a centralized location, rather than manually evaluating different machines. This allows them to sense threats early, provide identity monitoring, and more—all without any compatibility issues.

Container shipping company Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC) has gone this route. As in many businesses, MSC’s IT environment is spread across a variety of locations, networks, and technologies, such as container ships, trucking networks, and offices. Its previous security strategy employed a mixture of third-party solutions that often ran into compatibility issues between different components, giving attackers a large surface area to probe. This made MSC vulnerable to threats such as fileless attacks, phishing, and ransomware. However, after transitioning to a unified cloud security solution, it has been able to guard against attacks using protection that integrates effortlessly into its existing environment.

Reliable performance, more efficiently

The more complex an IT environment gets, the more time employees spend testing, maintaining, and repairing third-party security solutions. A unified cloud security approach improves performance by not only providing a consistent, layered defense strategy, but by also automating it across the entire IT infrastructure. At MSC, software and security updates are now done automatically and deployed without delay across the cloud. Information about possible threats and breaches can quickly be shared across devices and identities, speeding up response and recovery times so that employees can focus on other issues.

Security with flexibility to grow

Scalability is another factor driving adoption. A cloud environment can easily scale to accommodate spikes in traffic, additional users, or data-intensive applications. A patchwork of third-party security solutions tends not to be so nimble. At MSC, security controls are integrated into multiple levels of the existing IT infrastructure—from the operating system to the application layer—and can be dynamically sized to meet new business needs. For example, continuous compliance controls can be established to monitor regulatory activities and detect vulnerabilities as they grow.

A unified security approach: becoming the standard

The best security solutions perform quietly in the background, protecting users without them noticing. Unified cloud security does this while also reducing the resources required to keep things running smoothly. “Once you have true defense in depth, there’s less chance of having to single out a user and impact their productivity because you have to reimage an infected machine,” said Aaron Shvarts, chief security officer at MSC Technology North America.

After moving its workloads to Azure and upgrading its previous third-party security solutions to the native protection of Windows Defender, MSC now has a defense strategy that suits the complexity of its business.

Juniper-Ericsson partnership aimed at 5G market

Juniper Networks has partnered with Ericsson to offer carriers a collection of products for moving 4G and 5G traffic from a cell site to the network core. The deal marks an important win for Juniper, which is filling the void left by the nearly dead partnership between rival Cisco and Ericsson.

The Juniper-Ericsson alliance combines routers and software from both companies to build an optical transport for a mobile network that carriers can manage through a single software console, according to the vendors. The partners’ combined routers include Juniper’s MX and PTX series and Ericsson’s 6000 hardware.

Juniper and Ericsson have partnered on technology for almost 20 years. But the latest deal is a “significant win” for Juniper, because it improves the company’s chances of winning deals, as service providers build out their network infrastructure to deliver 5G wireless services to consumers and businesses, said Rajesh Ghai, an analyst at IDC.

For example, the partnership could provide Juniper with access to the many service providers that use Ericsson’s radio access technology to connect customers’ mobile devices to the carriers’ core networks, Ghai said. Ericsson has a 40% share of the radio access market.

Also, of the three top carrier suppliers, Ericsson is the only one without an extensive routing portfolio — a void Juniper can fill. The other two suppliers are Nokia and Huawei.

“It was critical that Juniper get aligned with Ericsson,” Ghai said. “It remains to be seen how exclusive Ericsson can keep the relationship.”

Meanwhile, Juniper’s biggest rival, Cisco, is more focused on selling its routers directly to service providers, rather than through Ericsson, Ghai said. Also, Cisco and Ericsson compete with products for the packet core, which has created “suspicion between the two partners.”

Cisco and Ericsson announced a wide-ranging partnership in 2015, but financial troubles pushed Ericsson into an extensive reorganization that prevented the company from following through on the deal. Nevertheless, Cisco has never declared the partnership dead, despite its failure to reach sales goals.

“Where we need to partner with Ericsson, we will continue to do that. And where we’re working directly with SPs [service providers], we’ll continue to do that,” said Sumeet Arora, general manager of service provider network systems at Cisco.

Juniper, Ericsson combined products for service providers

The Juniper-Ericsson partnership includes Juniper’s MX Series 5G Universal Routing Platform and its PTX Series Packet Transport Routers. The hardware supports mobile infrastructure for 10 Gb, 100 Gb and 400 Gb optical transport.

Juniper has aimed the MX at the service provider’s WAN edge, which could include routing traffic from a cell site onto the service provider’s core network. The PTX Series can handle traffic on the service provider’s backbone. Juniper has also designed the hardware to handle internet peering and data center interconnects.

Juniper’s MX and PTX routers are interoperable with Ericsson’s Router 6000 mobile backhaul and fronthaul portfolio. A wireless backhaul router connects mobile device traffic to a network node, such as the internet or a proprietary network. A fronthaul device sits at the access layer of the network and aggregates traffic from IoT devices.

Other hardware covered in the partnership includes Ericsson’s MINI-LINK microwave radio backhaul device. The partners are also offering software such as Juniper’s firewall, called the SRX Series Services Gateway, and Ericsson’s management and orchestration technology for controlling all the partners’ products.

In general, analysts do not expect service providers to take 5G infrastructure technology into production until next year, with businesses unlikely to buy 5G services until 2020 at the earliest. Industry observers expect IoT to be an initial driver of the 5G commercial market.

JetStream Data Protection safeguards data on the cloud

Cloud software development vendor JetStream Software is moving into backup with JetStream Data Protection, the newest member of its Cross-Cloud Data Management Platform.

JetStream Software is demonstrating its data protection software this week at VMworld. The application is in technology review and will enter beta in the fourth quarter of this year, with general availability scheduled for the first quarter of 2019.

JetStream Data Protection protects VMware environments by using continuous data capture and continuous replication methods, rather than the more commonly used snapshot-based backups.

The other applications of JetStream Cross-Cloud Data Management Platform are JetStream Migrate and JetStream Accelerate. JetStream Migrate moves live enterprise virtual machines (VMs) and their workloads into the cloud, while JetStream Accelerate uses nonvolatile memory in a low-latency storage tier to increase storage and compute performance.

JetStream Data Protection captures data through the use of VMware vSphere APIs for I/O Filtering (VAIO). It replicates that data to a low-latency log on an on-premises appliance before sending it through a crash-consistent data pipe to a cloud data center also running vSphere or a cloud-based object store.

The core technology in JetStream Data Protection is the I/O filter.

“It’s a way for a third-party technology to be integrated into the hypervisor to capture data as it moves between the virtual machine and the virtual disk,” said Rich Petersen, president and founder of JetStream Software, based in San Jose, Calif. “When you intercept data in this manner, it has much less impact on application performance than when creating a snapshot.”

Close connection with VMware

Only customers running VMware will be able to use JetStream Data Protection, as the company’s I/O filter is built on the vSphere-exclusive VAIO. According to Jeff Byrne, senior analyst and consultant at Taneja Group in Hopkinton, Mass., VAIO is unique.

“As far as I’m aware, VMware is the only vendor that has implemented I/O filters in user space in the hypervisor [ESXi] I/O stack,” he said. “Prior to VAIO, I/O filters were generally implemented in virtual appliances [that have access to I/O streams] or in the kernel itself. These approaches tended to be operationally complex to manage and, in the case of kernel deployment, risked introducing bugs or other instabilities.”

Byrne pointed out that many engineers and executives working at JetStream Software came from FlashSoft, a company that worked closely with VMware to develop I/O filters for caching and replication. JetStream used this familiarity and expertise to create JetStream Data Protection.

Still, Petersen said building software to take advantage of VAIO isn’t trivial. Any given on-premises environment could have hundreds or even thousands of VMs, and it’s difficult to handle the sheer volume of data going through the I/O filter. JetStream Data Protection handles that by replicating the data to a nonvolatile memory-based appliance.

“You have to have a highly scalable and very low-latency methodology for capturing it and replicating it somewhere else,” Petersen explained. “It really does produce a problem of a fire hose of data in the data center and a garden hose of connectivity onto the cloud, so you have to find a way to get around that. And the way we got around it is we took 50 garden hoses and strapped them together, basically.”

Moving toward data management

Long term, where we see the company going is extending policy-based data management beyond just availability.
Rich Petersenpresident and founder, JetStream Software

While the individual products of the platform enable data resilience, data migration and I/O acceleration, Petersen stressed that the goal of the overall platform is ultimately data management.

“Long term, where we see the company going is extending policy-based data management beyond just availability,” he said. “We do believe because of our position in the hypervisor, where we are in the data I/O path, we can also help support policies for maintaining service-level agreements, identifying and moving data to best-execution venues, and ensuring compliance with respect to things like data sovereignty and regulatory compliance.”

Petersen said JetStream is looking for ways to bring the Cross-Cloud Data Management Platform to other hypervisors, such as Microsoft Hyper-V and KVM.

Like the vendor’s other products, JetStream Data Protection will be sold through enterprise technology resellers, cloud service providers and managed service providers.

For Sale – iMac 5k 27″ Late 2015 – 3.3GHz i5, 32GB RAM, 256GB SSD, Radeon R9 M395

Due to moving to a new MacBook Pro, my iMac is up for sale as it’s no longer used.

Model is a Late 2015, maxed out with 32GB RAM. Specs are per the title but anyone wanting further clarification can PM for serial number (I think you can look up specs by serial number).

Picture shows macOS Mojave Beta installed but I have freshly installed the latest High Sierra as I did not want to leave my Developer Account copy of Mojave on the machine. It’s ready to go and set up as it is out the box.

Original box included, as well as outer cardboard box. Therefore posting is possible if buyer can help arrange due to value, but collection is highly preferred. Obviously posting will attract additional charges.

Further pictures of actual machine to be posted shortly. Condition is excellent, I can’t see any major marks on it except for a small tiny nick on the bottom edge that is barely noticeable. But once it’s had a thorough clean I will examine closely for anything that might be there that I may have missed.

Thanks
