This year’s IBM Security X-Force Threat Intelligence Index presents an uncomfortable truth: as businesses, institutions and governments continue to adapt to a fast-changing global market—including hybrid and cloud-based work environments—threat actors remain adept at exploiting such shifts.
While Oracle drives new features and is always at the helm of the latest OpenJDK versions, it does not maintain the versions people actually use in production except for customers with Java SE subscriptions. Azul, by contrast, carries the community spirt of Sun Microsystems, dedicated to ensuring the versions of Java that you use remain secure and stable, and ensuring that Java is appropriately supported to be the language of choice in the enterprise.
The Public Sector, and U.S. Government, has a long, often challenging history of cloud adoption. From the original “Cloud First” policy in 2011 to the recently updated and released “Cloud Smart Strategy” in 2018, the Government has aimed to accelerate the realized value of cloud computing across the Federal Government.
Despite that original policy being released nearly a decade ago, the Federal Government is still struggling to realize the full value of cloud computing. This is due to several challenges and unique requirements for IT consumption, cybersecurity and more as it relates to the Government and public sector. Let’s explore some of those challenges and opportunities.
The accessibility imperative for education.
“Nice idea, but not realistic for government.” Before the COVID-19 pandemic, that opinion of remote work was common among public sector leaders. Now, after two years of safety-driven changes, a permanently hybrid workplace is viewed by many as inevitable. Research conducted by the Center for Digital Government (CDG) found that half of 132 state and local government survey respondents plan to continue hybrid and remote work through 2022 and beyond.1 Roughly 20 percent of survey respondents also said their organization will use federal stimulus grants.

With many organizations now running essential services on containers, implementing container security has never been more critical. This whitepaper describes the key elements of security for containerized applications managed with Kubernetes.
The rise of notification technology has coincided with an increase in citizen demands for transparent communications from their leaders. Residents are expecting immediate and accurate information about the events and issues that affect their community.
Before a utility disaster occurs, review and revise your crisis communication plan. Determine the length of time for specific actions as detailed in the plan. Set a timeline for the order in which actions need to be put into effect.
While northern climates get a significant amount of extreme winter weather, it can affect regions throughout North America. Before winter weather strikes, review and revise your crisis communication plan.
As cyber threats continue to multiply, the enterprise IT staff face is required to prove systems under their control are safe to operate. In this paper, we explain how Microsoft and Telos are working together to streamline security compliance in Microsoft Azure.
“It’s not if, but when.” Unfortunately, that’s the view many organizations take about the inevitable failure of their cybersecurity defenses.
Every second counts in readiness and war. Customer Experience (CX) data including system users, employees, and warfighters are currently an untapped
resource with proven value. That’s why our nation's defenders must have the latest capabilities to effectively prepare and enhance decision making on and off the
Federal agency operations today consist of digital interactions between employees, citizens, constituents, and machines on countless smartphones, tablets, laptops, desktops, and back-end systems. This frenzy of digital activity, enabled by software applications, is essential to mission success and operational effectiveness.
