IT monitoring, org discipline polish Nasdaq DevOps incident response

Modern IT monitoring can bring together developers and IT ops pros for DevOps incident response, but tools can’t substitute for a disciplined team approach to problems.

Dev and ops teams at Nasdaq Corporate Solutions LLC adopted a common language for troubleshooting with AppDynamics’ App iQ platform. But effective DevOps incident response also demanded focus on the fundamentals of team building and a systematic process for following up on incidents to ensure they don’t recur.

“We had some notion of incident management, but there was no real disciplined way for following up,” said Heather Abbott, senior vice president of corporate solutions technology, who joined the New York-based subsidiary of Nasdaq Inc. in 2014. “AppDynamics has [affected] how teams work together to resolve incidents … but we’ve had other housekeeping to do.”

Shared IT monitoring tools renew focus on incident resolution

Nasdaq Corporate Solutions manages SaaS offerings for customers as they shift from private to public operations. Its products include public relations, investor relations, and board and leadership software managed with a combination of Amazon Web Services and on-premises data center infrastructure, though the on-premises infrastructure will soon be phased out.

In the past, Nasdaq’s dev and ops teams used separate IT monitoring tools, and teams dedicated to different parts of the infrastructure also had individualized dashboard views. The company’s shift to cross-functional teams, focused on products and user experience as part of a DevOps transformation, required a unified view into system performance. Now, all stakeholders share the AppDynamics App iQ interface when they respond to an incident.

With a single source of information about infrastructure performance, there’s less finger-pointing among team members during DevOps incident response, which speeds up problem resolution.

“You can’t argue with the data, and people have a better ongoing understanding of the system,” Abbott said. “So, you’re not going in and hunting and pecking every time there’s a complaint or we’re trying to improve something.”

DevOps incident response requires team vigilance

Since Abbott joined Nasdaq, incidents are down more than 35%. She cited the IT monitoring tool in part, but also pointed to changes the company made to the DevOps incident response process. The company moved from an ad hoc process of incident response divided among different departments to a companywide, systematic cycle of regular incident review meetings. Her team conducts weekly incident review meetings and tracks action items from previous incident reviews to prevent incidents from recurring. Higher levels of the organization have a monthly incident review call to review quality issues, and some of these incidents are further reviewed by Nasdaq’s board of directors.

We always need to focus on blocking and tackling … but as we move toward more complex microservices-based architectures, we’ll be building things into the platform like Chaos Monkey.

And there’s still room to improve the DevOps incident response process, Abbott said.

“We always need to focus on blocking and tackling,” she said. “We don’t have the scale within my line of business of Amazon or Netflix, but as we move toward more complex microservices-based architectures, we’ll be building things into the platform like Chaos Monkey.”

Like many companies, Nasdaq plans to tie DevOps teams with business leaders, so the whole organization can work together to improve customer experiences. In the past, Nasdaq has generated application log reports with homegrown tools. But this year, it will roll out AppDynamics’ Business iQ software, first with its investor-relations SaaS products, to make that data more accessible to business leaders, Abbott said.

AppDynamics App iQ will also expand to monitor releases through test, development and production deployment phases. Abbott said Nasdaq has worked with AppDynamics to create intelligent release dashboards to provide better automation and performance trends. “That will make it easy to see how system performance is trending over time, as we introduce change,” he said.

While Nasdaq mainly uses AppDynamics App iQ, the exchange also uses Datadog, because it offers event correlation and automated root cause analysis. AppDynamics has previewed automated root cause analysis based on machine learning techniques. Abbott said she looks forward to the addition of that feature, perhaps this year.

Cisco, Hyundai to add software-defined platform to vehicles

Cisco and Hyundai Motor Co. said they would work together to develop vehicles anchored by software-defined networking. The first vehicles are slated to roll out next year, the companies said. Cisco and Hyundai released their plans at this year’s CES in Las Vegas, following up on an original announcement in 2016.

In smart-car fashion, Cisco and Hyundai will develop the vehicles with a focus on communication and sensors. That’s where the “software-defined” status comes in. The premium Hyundai vehicles will integrate a Cisco-built software-defined platform with an Internet Protocol (IP) and 1 Gbps Ethernet in-vehicle network, according to a Cisco statement.

The IP and Ethernet network will enable high-speed connectivity to each vehicle device, the statement said. But more than that, Cisco and Hyundai hope to develop a more open vehicle system to enable the actual communication among smart vehicles, roadways or traffic lights, Ruba Borno, Cisco’s vice president of growth initiatives, wrote in a blog post.

“This is the only way to achieve full autonomy and enable vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-roadways communication,” Borno wrote. “By putting software inside the central gateway, the new solution enables high-speed connectivity downstream to every device in the car — and upstream to the cloud. This IP connectivity is required for applications to control devices based on real-time data and analytics.”

The software-defined platform will also allow for easier feature updates.

“[The new platform] is highly configurable and secure — and offers the flexibility to design and build new services,” Cisco’s statement said. “It will provide ‘over-the-air updates’ and accelerate the time it takes to bring new capabilities to market.”

The software-defined platform will also act as a foundation for security, touting “integrated, multilayered security, as well as full end-to-end networking,” according to Cisco. This end-to-end security includes encryption, authentication, intrusion detection, firewall and network traffic analysis, Borno wrote in her blog post.

The companies said they are looking into integrating the software-defined vehicles with Hyundai data centers in order to access real-time data.

Windstream to acquire MassComm

Windstream said it plans to acquire MassComm, a New York-based competitive local exchange carrier, or CLEC, according to a filing submitted to the Federal Communications Commission the last week of December.

The proposal stated that Windstream will purchase in cash all issued and outstanding MassComm capital stock. Once the deal closes, MassComm will be a wholly owned subsidiary of Windstream, the filing said.

MassComm provides voice, data and networking technologies, in addition to telecommunications and connectivity management and consultation. The CLEC is authorized to serve customers in California, Connecticut, the District of Columbia, Florida, Illinois, Massachusetts, Michigan, New York, Pennsylvania and Texas. Those areas will be combined with Windstream’s reach across the U.S.  Windstream runs a fiber network comprising approximately 150,000 miles.

“By combining MassComm’s customer base with Windstream’s presence and fiber network, the combined company will have the opportunity to serve more of MassComm’s current customers on Windstream’s own last-mile facilities,” the proposal said.

The companies explained the acquisition holds no competitive risks, as MassComm doesn’t own any last-mile facilities, thereby eliminating potential overlap with Windstream’s facilities. Further, the proposal stated competition in the medium-sized business market will be enhanced. The companies don’t expect the transaction to affect current MassComm customer rates or terms of service, according to the filing.

The proposal did not disclose specific financial terms of the transaction. Windstream completed acquisitions of Broadview and EarthLink last year and also partnered with VeloCloud to offer SD-WAN managed services.

Aryaka and Zscaler partner to boost security for cloud-bound traffic

Aryaka is working with Zscaler to offer an SD-WAN package that combines Aryaka’s private network connectivity with Zscaler’s cloud-delivered security.

Once the service is available later this year, internet and cloud-bound traffic will be directly forwarded to Zscaler’s cloud via Aryaka’s edge device, Aryaka Network Access Point, according to an Aryaka statement. All traffic will then undergo a variety of security processes, including antivirus, threat prevention, data protection and access control.

Aryaka said the security enhancement will allow its customers to use its private network to securely access cloud-based and on-premises applications.

Zscaler already provides security services to other SD-WAN vendors, including VeloCloud, Riverbed and Talari.

Microsoft and Facebook disrupt ZINC malware attack to protect customers and the internet from ongoing cyberthreats – Microsoft on the Issues

Last week Microsoft, working together with Facebook and others in the security community, took strong steps to protect our customers and the internet from ongoing attacks by an advanced persistent threat actor known to us as ZINC, also known as the Lazarus Group. We concluded that this threat actor was responsible for WannaCry, a destructive attack in May that targeted Microsoft customers. Among other steps, last week we helped disrupt the malware this group relies on, cleaned customers’ infected computers, disabled accounts being used to pursue cyberattacks and strengthened Windows defenses to prevent reinfection. We took this action after consultation with several governments, but made the decision independently. We anticipate providing more information about our actions and their effect in the coming months once we have had the opportunity to analyze applicable data and information.

Today, the governments of the United States, United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, New Zealand and Japan have all announced that the government of North Korea is responsible for the activities of ZINC/Lazarus. We are pleased to see these governments making this strong statement of attribution. If the rising tide of nation-state attacks on civilians is to be stopped, governments must be prepared to call out the countries that launch them. Today’s announcement represents an important step in government and private sector action to make the internet safer.

Microsoft welcomed the opportunity to work with Facebook and others in recent weeks to address this issue. As we look to 2018, it’s essential that we act with shared responsibility to strengthen further the partnerships with the security community and governments to combat cyberattacks against civilians. There is much we can build on from our longstanding work with private industry partners, Interpol, Europol, the FBI and other law enforcement agencies in our ongoing efforts to combat botnets and other cybercrime.
