An Intellyx Brain Candy Brief One important step on the Cyber Kill Chain that any advanced persistent threat (APT) must execute is lateral movement. The hacker must move from their initial point of entry to other locations in the target infrastructure until they find what they’re looking for. Illusive Networks stops APTs at the lateral movement step by deploying decoys at every endpoint throughout the infrastructure. If the hacker falls for a single decoy, the Illusive technology then kicks into forensic mode, collecting information about it in order to identify and stop the attack. Unlike the earlier decoy technology of honey pots that act as decoy targets, Illusive’s decoys can appear anywhere, for example, a memory trace of login credentials or perhaps an SSH config file. In addition, Illusive Networks uses artificial intelligence during deployment, autonomously l... (more)

Dynatrace Drives Digital Innovation With AI Virtual Assistant

Innovation in the white-hot digital performance management (DPM) market continues to accelerate, and it was clear from this week’s Perform conference in Las Vegas that Dynatrace is setting the pace. In fact, Dynatrace’s innovations are so cutting-edge and so flashy that on first glance they may seem to be gimmicks. For example, there’s Dynatrace UFO, a saucer-shaped device with flashing lights that one might confuse with a drone. But instead of flying, it provides status reports with patterns of red and green lights. Or maybe the Digital Experience Center – a video wall that displays several of Dynatrace’s monitoring dashboards. If normal-sized screens are good, the reasoning might go, then large ones would be better, right? And then there’s davis, the artificial intelligence (AI)-driven interface to Dynatrace’s deep, real-time knowledge about application and infra... (more)

‘Chaos age’ requires futurists to protect business: Panel

Digital ad scandals and ad blockers are undermining online ads – but what happens next?

By Jon Reed Note that bit about “advertising rates across the media are falling fast.” The push to invent a new model is high pressure. That means many publishers have declared war on ad blockers. In Ad Blocking Battle Drives Disruptive Innovation, Forbes’ Jason Bloomberg does the delicate dance of writing about ad blockers on a site that well, disables ad blockers: Grumble if you will – but put yourself into Forbes’ shoes for a moment, or any other firm that depends upon ad revenue. Ad blockers cut directly into that revenue. Who suffers in the end? You, the consumer, because without ad revenue, many online firms would cease to exist. Read the entire article at ... (more)

AJAX Composite Apps - The Last Mile Between Your Users and Your SOA

In the telecommunications industry there's a special phrase for that bit of technology that carries data from the last pole or relay box into the customer's home. It's called "the last mile" and it's often seen as one of the biggest challenges because this last step in the technology chain can be a considerable physical undertaking. In the IT industry we also have our "last mile": putting the right application in the hands of the end user. Composite applications address this "last mile", combining a rich user interface with SOA-driven application integration technology. Composite applications are nothing new. Analysts have been talking about composite applications since the birth of the Internet and in more urgent tones during the Enterprise Application Integration (EAI) generation of integration technology. Today there are plenty of consumer-focused composite appl... (more)
