New IDC Study Highlights Network Intelligence Critical for Multi-Cloud Security

Gigamon | March 13, 2023 | Read time : 01:52 min


Gigamon, the industry leader in deep observability, recently announced the results of a new study from an international data corporation (IDC). It surveyed over 900 IT leaders worldwide and provided invaluable insights for CISOs, CIOs, and their IT organizations to improve performance, security, and productivity with observability throughout all their digital infrastructures. The IDC white paper confirmed that leveraging network-derived knowledge and insights is essential for detecting today's complex security threats across hybrid and multi-cloud infrastructures.

With 95% of businesses reporting a ransomware attack in 2022, IT security remains a significant priority for executives across all sectors. However, most respondents (over 60%) to the IDC White Paper agree that present observability solutions only address specific needs and don't give a complete picture of how things run. To reduce vulnerabilities in hybrid and multi-cloud environments, it is crucial to supplement the conventional observability capabilities based on metrics, events, logs, and traces (MELT) with real-time network-derived intelligence and insights.

Important Findings:

  • Security (34%), staff productivity (33%), and digital/user experience (22%) are the top advantages of observability (25%).
  • Nearly 75% of businesses use or intend to employ deep observability technologies to boost automation initiatives in the coming years.
  • About half of the respondents (51%) of the market will witness significant investments in cloud services
  • Adherence to the SANS 20 Critical Security Controls, supported by network-derived intelligence, can eliminate 98% of attack vectors.

Mark Leary, Research Director with IDC, remarked, “Networking, cybersecurity, and observability are becoming intertwined. IT organizations are looking to leverage an immutable source of truth and more collaborative management efforts to break down siloed technology approaches, position themselves for long-term success, and, ultimately, deliver the best possible business outcomes.”

Scale Computing Expands Edge to Cloud Video Surveillance with Wasabi Surveillance Cloud

prnewswire | March 30, 2023

Scale Computing, the market leader in edge computing, virtualization, and hyperconverged solutions, today announced its edge video surveillance solutions have been extended to include cloud video surveillance storage with Wasabi Surveillance Cloud and the Intel® NUC Enterprise Edge Compute Built with Scale Computing. Together, Scale Computing and Wasabi deliver an edge to cloud surveillance solution that is easy to use, minimizes disruption, and allows access to video as usual, and when paired with the Intel EEC customers have a bottomless-storage, edge to cloud appliance. The company also announced its participation at ISC West in Las Vegas this week. "Video and AI are going through a massive transformation, creating an opportunity for the industry to leverage edge technologies from companies like Scale Computing and Wasabi that enable better performance, agility, choice, and cost," said Kasia Hanson, Global Director, Video, Safety & Security Sales at Intel. "As the video surveillance and security markets continue to grow rapidly, shifting from analog video cameras, CCTV, and proprietary recording appliances to digital IP-based cameras, the demand for near real-time response is driving this need for computing power at the edge of a network. By combining the power of Intel® NUC EEC with the simplicity and reliability of Scale Computing HyperCore software, organizations have an efficient, scalable, and comprehensive edge computing solution." "Organizations are making significant technology investments in video surveillance, and Wasabi Surveillance Cloud is a first-of-its-kind solution offered by a cloud provider that enables these organizations to offload video surveillance footage from their local storage environment directly to the cloud without ever running out of capacity," said David Boland, VP of Cloud Strategy at Wasabi. "This 'bottomless' approach to video storage, combined with Scale Computing, is vital for the surveillance industry as it struggles to manage enormous amounts of video in high resolution environments and increasingly large file sizes tied to surveillance." Scale Computing and Wasabi combine industry-leading, on-premises edge computing with easy-to-use cloud data retention and archival to create the agile, hybrid-cloud environment needed today. With seamless integration with all major VMS providers inside of Wasabi Surveillance Cloud, Scale Computing is now able to expand to organizations' needs for critical video surveillance at the edge to the cloud. "We're seeing a lot of security organizations and businesses beginning to adopt cloud storage as a way to reduce video storage complexity and costs. As they do so, one of the main obstacles that they face is converting the file-based format to a cloud object storage format," said Scott Loughmiller, Chief Product Officer and co-founder of Scale Computing. "Organizations can now combine on-premises Scale Computing clusters and Wasabi Hot Cloud Storage, allowing recent video to be stored locally at the edge until it's moved to the cloud where it can be kept for as long as the organization needs it." About Scale Computing Scale Computing is a leader in edge computing, virtualization, and hyperconverged solutions. Using patented HyperCore™ technology, Scale Computing Platform automatically identifies, mitigates, and corrects infrastructure problems in real-time, enabling applications to achieve maximum uptime, even when local IT resources and staff are scarce. Edge Computing is the fastest growing area of IT infrastructure, and industry analysts have named Scale Computing an outperformer and leader in the space, including being named the #1 edge computing vendor by CRN. Scale Computing's products are sold by thousands of value-added resellers, integrators, and service providers worldwide. When ease-of-use, high availability, and TCO matter, Scale Computing Platform is the ideal infrastructure platform.
